The PS2 generation doesn't get mentioned in the same breath of the PS1 generation in terms of their role-playing game offerings, yet there is a gluttony of high caliber games that deserve to get the same amount of love. To shed some light on these titles for the best PS2 RPGs
Here are the best PS1 RPGs. There are no restrictions on entries per franchise (so expect to see multiple entries from Final Fantasy). Games that are remakes, such as Chrono Trigger, or the Lunar Star series will also not be considered. The traditional RPG from the fifth generation is what will be considered
Metal Gear Solid is one of the best game series of all-time. A collection of convoluted plots, iconic storytelling & generation leading graphics that have garnered both praise &alienation from gamers and critics alike & is the pinnacle of game design. Here are the best Metal Gear Solid games in the series.
These are the top games per console generation. This is a personal ranking, and just because a great game is not on here doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it, but it’s also easier to look back now on many of these games and realize how much time and attention I gave them, and how willing I would go back and play it again.

13 Assassins takes the "small band fighting against a big group" that Akira Kurasawa did so well and turns it into the best Samurai fight scenes ever put to film. Not just an action movie; spiritualism, honor and duty are themes that drive the heroes of the film.
Without spoiling what makes Colossal so effective, the tone is the primary twist with this film what makes it stand out. An interesting, wacky & original concept that is buoyed by excellent performances and the aforementioned tonal twist fight against genre tropes & what you think the movie would devolve into.
Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction set in the future focusing on society as "high tech low life." The best cyberpunk movies all include common themes such as high tech & dystopian but the quality that defines them is how well they are they explored. Here are the best cyperpunk movies of all-time.
The friends are made to seem like they are from the the "poor part of town" but mostly they are just down on their luck. This causes a lack of empathy that makes it hard to root for the friends, but ultimately the music helps to overcome the film's shortcomings.
