Games "We've joked about its refusal to die before, but today, finally, the console begins its march into the history books. Having sold over 150 million units since its release in 2000, the PlayStation 2 has today ceased shipping to Japanese retailers, meaning once remaining stock is gone, it's gone. The console was first released in Japan on March 4, 2000, and in those twelve years has become - by a longshot - the biggest-selling home video game console of all time." I should play Shadow of the Colossus again.

The console is only as good as the games released for it are.

The PS2 hardware wise was a faulty POS (the drive mostly), but it did not matter because it had the most and biggest games of its generation.

DC and Xbox had a couple of decent exclusives and Gamecube... well, it's nintendo, it has its fanbase but personally I'm not feeling the whole mario thing (I guess it's mostly popular in japan and usa).
