With Playstation now porting over a bunch of PS2 games, I of course have my own list of PS2 games that I would love to see ported over to the PS4. I spent many many years playing my PS2, even when it went out of style and the new hip things was the PS3. I just couldn’t let go of my PS2, mostly because of how I got it. I got my PS2 after over a year of saving up my daily lunch money and sneaking food out of the house so that I still had lunch. That was the first game system that I actually bought with my own money so it meant something to me. Anyway out of every game that I played on my PS2, here’s my list of the top 10 games I want to see on the PS4.
10. The Thing
Based off of the 1982 movie, this game was all about survival. Not only did you have to make sure you didn’t go crazy in a remote part of Antarctica, you had to make sure your whole team didn’t go crazy all while trying to stay alive. Once your team members were dead, they were dead and didn’t come back. With each team member that died, the harder the game became. I spent a countless amount of hours on this game and miss it dearly which is why it needs to come back.
9. Indigo Prophecy
My first quick time event game, I fell in love with this game from the first time I played it. I completely found this game by chance as it was just sitting on the shelf at my local Blockbuster just begging for someone to rent it and play. Having played just about everything else, I thought what the hell. Once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down and was totally immersed in this thriller that was both weird and intriguing. Another game that I never finished, I begged my Blockbuster to let me buy this game since I couldn’t find it anywhere else to purchase. Of course those bastards said no, and now I’ll wait for the day it’s ported to the PS4.
8. The Operative: No One Lives Forever
Make fun of me all you want, but this was a kick ass game. You play as a Cate an ex cat burglar turned into the first female spy in 1960 England. How you play each mission is up to you and that’s what made it so great. I remember spending as much time as I could playing this game and would love to be able to play it again, this time with trophies.
7. The Godfather
This was a day one buy for me when it came out. It offered things that I had never seen in any other video games before and was innovative for its time. I know this also came out on the PS3, but it didn’t have any trophies and a PS4 version would be great. It follows what has to be one of the best movies of all time and also makes the story one that is personal to the character that you create
6. James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing
Not much of a James Bond fan, the movies or the games, there was just something about this game that caught my eye. I don’t know what it was but I picked up this game on a whim and just couldn’t stop playing it. I loved every minute I spent playing it and it would be nice to see this one ported over to the PS4 so that I could have the chance to play it again.
5. Silent Hill
If I’m going to be honest, then I’m going to tell you that this game scared the shit out of me. The first time I entered that school and those little weirdo kids came at me with their knives I screamed, threw my controller on the floor, and ran out of the room. Although I’m not a fan of horror games all that much, can you blame me after this experience, I would still like the chance to be able to conquer my fear and give this game another go.
I don’t know why but I gave this game a try and it just stuck with me ever since. It’s one of those games that really isn’t all that interesting by any means, has you repeat levels over and over again until you get things right, and by no means should be all that memorable but it just is for me. It’s memorable enough that it made it into my top 5 and I want to see this game ported to the PS4 if only for the insane trophy list that is going to come with it.
3. The Simpsons: Hit and Run
Who didn’t love this game? It’s The Simpsons meets GTA III. This game is just awesome and not a lot has to be said about it to warrant a port over to the PS4. This needs to happen right now.
2. Max Payne
Although I have Max Payne 3 sitting on my PS3 just waiting to be played, I would give up playing that in order to play the original Max Payne on my PS4. One of the best games in the series, granted I didn’t play 3 but I played 2 and the original was much better, you play as beaten down cop Max Payne who is trying to avenge the death of his family. The story is gripping, has a few surprise twists and has some pretty innovative game play. Why wasn’t this one of the first games ported over to the PS4?
Did you know that this one was going to be my number one game? What’s not to love about this game. I must have played this game from start to finish over 10 times and each time felt like a new experience to me. Who would have known that a game about going to school could actually be fun? Forget GTA III and GTA Vice City, this was Rockstar’s true gem for the PS2 and seriously needs to be brought to the PS4.
There you have it, my top ten list of PS2 games that need to come to the PS4. Agree with me? Disagree with me? Have a list of your own or some games you think should be added to my list? Let me know in the comments section below.
