Wow, this is hard, I've wanted to reply to like half the posts on this thread.
Well anyway, I'm happy that Silent Hill 2 is on the list. I would have put it higher but of course I'm a fan of the series. Silent Hill 2 is actually my favorite game ever, followed by Silent Hill 1. In a way though, I do think it's a bit sad that Silent Hill 3 isn't somewhere on the list, especially since IGN seemed to like it as well or better than SH2, guess it's all just a damn popularity contest. In a way SH2 feels like the Final Fantasy VII of the Silent Hill world, though not as extreme. (Makes me wonder which FF games all the other SH games would be, I would say SH1 is FFIV)
Anyway, I personally like FFX better than FFXII. Though some of the voice acting was annoying, a lot of focus was put on the story and it definently sucked me in more than XII, I also find it the sereis' most replayable game, and I kinda like Tidus (I played the game right after VII and VIII so he was a welcome change of pace from Cloud and Squall). The main thing that FFXII did better was towns and NPCs. I like the music of both games. XII's was very fitting.
I think that "fun factor" and enjoyment are two different things. Silent Hill 2 doesn't seem all that fun. However, the game has a great story. It depresses me a lot, but I like that.
I've played about 20 minutes of Halo my whole life, sitting around playing with a few friends. It was fun, but if I never play it again I won't be sad, it left absolutely no impact on me whatsoever.
I think that the true enjoyment level of anything multiplayer depends on who you play it with. I love what I played with Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but mainly because I was playing it with my best friends and we were having a good time together, so it became memorable.
Shadow of the Colussus is a neat, non-shallow pick for #1. Personally I thought it was a great game, but not a great game for me. I sold it and I hope someone bought it and absoultely fell in love with it.
I've never owned any beanie babies, but honestly now I'm much girlier than I was when I was little and I kinda want some. I saw some with a claw machine once and started putting some coins in, but then I realized it was broken. There was such an adorable little tiger in there.
I guess I really should give Kingdom Hearts another shot. I've become much more open-minded towards RPGs in general since I last played it. A couple years ago, I wouldn't have been able to play Pokemon, but here I am having a blast. And I kinda like Action RPGs (woo! crisis core!)
My top 10 ps2 games:
1. Silent Hill 2
2. Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando
3. Ratchet and Clank
4. Persona 3 FES
5. Final Fantasy X
6. Dragon Quest VIII
7. Gran Turismo 3
8. Spider-Man 2
9. Resident Evil 4
10. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
So in short, Silent Hill 2 is awesome.
