Check out these PS2 classics that no gamer should be without.
It's one of the best-selling games consoles of all time. Groundbreaking power, iconic design and a huge catalogue of games - PlayStation 2 was the console to own back when it was released in 2000.
Many of the games were so good, they've been made available to download to PlayStation 3 either as PS2 Classics or remastered editions from PlayStation Store. You owe it to yourself to explore the richness of PlayStation heritage with these timeless classics.
Grand Theft Auto was the series that developer Rockstar was primarily known for back in 2006. With Canis Canem Edit came an entirely new game with an unexpected setting; the school playground.
