A Decade Of PS2 Goodness...

October 26, 2000 marked the 10th anniversary of the North American release of the Sony Playstation 2 - arguably one of the best consoles of all time, and what I can say is that my unit is still standing tall and proud as a testament to what I have accomplished as a gamer. True, it was originally released in Japan 7 months prior, but the Playstation 2 experience didn't start for me well until the US got its launch and gave me a taste of all things gaming. There are plenty of titles I would like to mention, but I owe it to this system for giving me the pleasure of experiencing great games such as Devil May Cry 1-3, God Of War I & II, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, the Grand Theft Auto series, and so much more. Be it action games, fighting games, RPGs, or whatever genre comes to mind, the PS2 served up a good round of entertainment for well over a decade, and even with its successor making trends, it's still a good system to consider for anyone looking for simple and casual entertainment. Heck, they even made some strange commercials... like this one.

In the end, all that mattered was the games. Happy 10th Birthday PS2, and thanks for the good times!
