We asked you all for community PS2 top 10 lists and boy did you oblige.  In a massive push of lists that takes nearly 2 hours to read off Fred and Jam delve deep into the many games PS2 owners love.  It’s a widespread list and a great celebration of Sony’s sophomore console.  As a result we’ve pushed a few of the scheduled game nights, but a friendly reminder to get started on Kingdom Hearts if you haven’t already for August’s 2-part game club.
