Anyone else agree with me on this?? or wil you all just hate me?

I believe that the ps2 was a better console than the ps3, only game wise, the ps3 is around 5 years old, and that means around half of it's life, but i have yet to find the passion and effort put into games. A list of my views are below.
  • Midnight club 3 > Midnight Club LA
  • NFS Underground-carbon > NFS prostreet - shift
  • Prince of Persia games were better on the ps2
  • GTA san andreas > GTA 4
  • hell even final fantasy is better on the ps2
 
can you tell me wtf happened?
 
edit:
 
 oh, and the ps2 was always backwards compatible, they never took that away,  
 
also
  • DMC 1-3SE were better than 4
  • MGS 2-3 are way better than 4
  • killzone better than the second

I think a lot of people will agree with you. I probably will, until they bring out a new Timesplitters and Mortal Kombat.

Opinions. Interesting things, aren't they?

Dude ya I feel ya. The 3rd party games on the 360 have so much more passion in them...

#6 Posted by secretagent099 (127 posts) -

Well the third-party games can't exactly be blamed on Sony, but I can see why the PS2 is looked at as a better console for other reasons.

@Interfect: eh, i am not a huge fan of the 360, and sold mine, fable 2 was better than the first, and forza 3 was better than 2

I definitely had more fun playing the PS2 than my PS3 or Xbox 360.

The PS2 owned the last generation, so it received the most 3rd party support, and therefore got the larger portion of top quality games.  That in itself isn't a huge factor this gen, because alot of those games are still coming out on the PS as well as the 360.  The experiences are different than you would remember last gen because the amount of work put into HD games means that there is less room for longer experiences from "top tier" titles.

I like how you added the Y in the picture.  I am not disappoint.

Me too. I think it's because of the market competition, the focus with graphics in this generation, the economic climate and prices. It divided games among more platforms, and with longer development cycles and more expensive, translated in a worse overall experience.

you are indeed right.

To be fair though the PS2 has over 1000 games, I do still play my PS2, in fact I might just go play it now.

#18 Posted by Organicalistic_ (2954 posts) -
@Berezov: after i sold mine i ended up buying another one
#19 Posted by generic_gamer (2 posts) -

The ps2 had some of my favourite console games ever (the exception being Perfect Dark) like Snake Eater, Wipeout fusion and Killzone.

Only one I agree with is final fantasy since 13 was such a joken ditto with mgs actually as well.

Final Fantasy XIII was a much better game XII. Your point is invalid.

What about X? 
I won't mention that other FF game though... 
 
Also, I'm quite sure DMC4 is better than 2.

YES! Another who speaks the truth, everyone else I talk to denies this because it is a "last gen" game, but it had more personality and creativity than the second! 
#32 Posted by Organicalistic_ (2954 posts) -
@TheCreamFilling: it did
#33 Posted by powicewobots (96 posts) -

The PlayStation 2 did have an incredible array of games, I just think that because it has been so much of a close race this time around, that there have been far less exclusive titles. I think that across the board, the games of this current generation have been of a high quality. That said, I always have fun playing my old PS2 games, it was definitely one of the greatest consoles that there has ever been.

#35 Posted by drummerboykhari (192 posts) -

PS2 honestly looks cooler than the PS3. I like the more squarish look compared to PS3 looking like...smooth tar. Ps2...mine died on me today..but it lasted for like how long? Over 8 years? Will the PS3 last that long? Most likely not

#36 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

I understand, but up until just this year, a lot of developers were complaining that the developers kits were hard to work with.

#37 Posted by Shadow (4981 posts) -

I can't speak for everyone, but I just hate you

#38 Posted by Organicalistic_ (2954 posts) -
@Shadow: why exactly
#39 Posted by Lazyaza (2196 posts) -

I've played more awesome games on my ps3 than I ever did on ps2 so I outright disagree with you.  

#40 Posted by Shadow (4981 posts) -
@organicalistic_: There's not a single thing you said that I don't completely disagree with.
#41 Posted by BunkerBuster (1042 posts) -

The PS2 didn't really have any competition did it? There was the Dreamcast the Gamecube and the Xbox with the PS2 having the higher sales and attach rate so the PS2 got all the third-party support. Now the Wii has the most sales and the Xbox 360 has the higher attack rate so developers are wary of spending time on the PS3. That being said the PS2 didn't have Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Gran Turismo 5, so there is still plenty of fantastic games that will become classics in the future.

#42 Posted by Vextroid (1418 posts) -

Thats more of the developers fault rather then Sony.

I agree with you, but I still hate you.

Ha! How's them apples!
