IGN has ranked the best PlayStation 2 RPGs of all-time

Sony’s PlayStation 2 console had some absolute gems for RPG fans ranging from the mighty Final Fantasy series to the Kingdom Hearts games. IGN have taken on the giant task of ranking the best RPG’s on the popular system which launched back in the year 2000. Thankfully a number of the RPGs are available on other consoles now, including a number of Final Fantasy games on the eShop. Here’s the RPG’s that IGN believes are the best on PS2.

10. Odin Sphere
9. Kingdom Hearts 2
8. Persona 3 FES
7. Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
6. Dark Cloud 2
5. Final Fantasy X
4. Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance
3. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
2. Dragon Quest VIII
1. Final Fantasy XII

    1. Totally agree with Final Fantasy XII. That game was ahead of its time. I didn’t even fully appreciate it until years later.

  1. No Legend of Legaia 2, Suikoden 5, or Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter. Yes to Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts but you totally skipped over Monster Hunter, Legacy of Kain, and Bloodrayne as well. Such a sad list. Hell even Devil May Cry should have been on here.

    1. Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry are RPGs? Keep in mind this is an RPG list, not a general games list.

  2. Still hoping Persona 3 FES gets put up onto Steam or something- I’ve played P5, P5 Royal, P4 Golden and am working my way through P5 Strikers but I want to go through 3 before starting the Q games…

  3. FF12 is the best ps2 RPG? I mean the game was good but the best? Come on now, that’s complete and utter bullshit
