My Best Play Station 2 Games

Saturday, January 30, 2010

So, do you like playing games on your PC or on gaming consoles such as PS3 and Xbox? Well, I prefer to play games on gaming consoles as they are tailor-made to suit the needs of avid gamers. Computers, on the other hand, are more for surfing the Internet and socialising as well as preparing important assignments and blog entries such as this.

I had always wanted a gaming console since I was young. Back then, I used to play on my cousin’s Sega game console, which, if compared to the gaming consoles of the present times, would be dwarfed by a thousand times over.

During that era, game consoles used video chips, and were better referred to as video games. But then out came PS1, followed by PS2 a few years later. Not long after the introduction of PS2 to the market in Malaysia, my father bought one of it back home for a thousand Ringgit or so and that was circa 2003.

In 2008, PS3 was released to the market but nope, I don’t have it as of yet. I think I have grown out of PS games too. Anyway, I still have got a few PS games that I will remember for a long time. They are mostly sport and action games. I have listed my favourite PS2 games below.

Formula 1 ’06

A magnificent race-simulation game. At first, it was hard to get to grips with the controls of the game, but after long hours of practice, I was able to challenge the computer-controlled race cars by at least matching their pace.

At some tracks I was much better compared to them, while at other tracks, I would time poorer lap times compared to the computer-controlled race cars. One sad thing though – even when I had the pace to win a race, somehow or another, my car would end up in the barriers.

LMA Manager 07

An extremely addictive game I would say. Once I started playing this game, I wouldn’t stop for hours. Although it is just a manager game, but I found it to be fun. I used to control teams such as Bayern Munich and Fulham and had won numerous domestic and European honours.

I still remember clearly that I went 14 seasons or so with Bayern Munich before disaster struck – my sister accidently pulled the plug when I was saving my game. The data got corrupted and I was quite angry at that time. My hard work for over a year was just lost like that.

Socom 3 U.S. Navy Seals

This is the one and only army shooting game that I have ever liked. I was never a fan of ‘Call of Duty’ or ‘Medal of Honour’ among others. The game, which is set in three different real life locations, namely Africa, India and Poland, had a very realistic feel to it.

In the game, users take on the role of Spector, who is the leader of a group of four specially trained commandos to plot the downfall of terrorism.  It took me almost about a year to complete this game as I kept on getting stuck in one particular level. But that only means that the game was indeed challenging!

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

Unlike previous Star Wars games where most of the fighting was done using blaster rifles, in The Force Unleashed, the lightsaber is the only weapon used by the character. And with so many special moves using the lightsaber which needed to be unlocked, I kept on playing and won the game in about a month!

Although the gameplay wasn't quite interesting since it was pretty acedemic in winning the levels in the game, but the storyline made the difference. It was like a two in one experience - playing the game and watching a movie at the same time!

What are your all time favourite games, be it for computer, PS or Xbox? Do share your thoughts by dropping a comment below.
