The Most Graphic Intensive PS2 GamesFarah R.
The year was 2000. After its crushing success over its competitors with the PS1, Sony had all the gaming world’s attention, waiting for its next console. In March, the Playstation 2 was on the shelves, and soon it became what would be known as the best-selling console of all time, features exceptional PS2 games. Elaborating on reasons why the PS2 was the best of the best is enough to make it deserve a separate article. In this contribution, though, I will focus on one aspect of its design: its graphic capabilities. The PS2 was very developer-friendly. You see, creating a videogame can be very expensive when you want to excel on the graphic part. The PS2 allowed game creators to lower the looks and save a bit of money. This flexibility led to some of its games looking not so flashy as their counterparts. But this doesn’t mean the PS2 was not capable of blowing our minds, provided the game developers wanted to make the proper investment.
