In the past few months many Playstation 2 HD games have been released or announced. I personally think it’s about time Sony begins to release more of their hugely popular and successful PS2 games. Originally when I got my 40 gigabyte Playstation 3 I really hoped that a patch would eventually be released to let users play PS2 games on the HD console. Many people waited and waited but, that time never came. In a sense it was a good thing since instead of replaying your old PS2 games, they are now being released with remastered high definition visuals, trophies and an assortment of other extras. The Sly Collection for instance which includes Sly Cooper 1,2 and 3 was released with Playstation Move compatibility and supported 3D visuals along with better visuals and trophies. A few collections have been released and have seemed to be successful, In my opinion some advertising would definitely draw in a substantial amount of interest. These collections have been released on both Bluray discs and on the Playstation Network, some only on the PSN. With more and more remastered PS2 games being released this fall like the Metal Gear Solid Collection and Tekken Tag Tournament, I have some suggestions for what PS2 games I want to be re released in beautiful high definition with trophies and maybe even (I seriously doubt it) original online play.
Final Fantasy HD Collection
Final Fantasy X
Final Fantasy X-2
Final Fantasy XII
These three rpgs were hugely popular among the PS2 era especially Final Fantasy X, imagine them with high definition visuals, stunning is all I can think of.
James Bond HD Collection
Everything or Nothing
From Russia with Love
These four games are just some average to great overall shooters and Bond games. An HD remaster could do some good as well as some redone voice work with the real James Bond for Under Fire and Nightfire.
Jak and Daxter Collection
Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
This was one of the flagship series’ that defines the PS2 era. I personally haven’t played this but, Jak and Daxter look as colorful as Ratchet and Clank so, I’m interested.
Rathet & Clank HD Collection
Ratchet & Clank
Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando
Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal
Ratchet & Clank another PS2 icon deserves to be remastered due to its explosive, fun and simple gameplay reminiscent of the first Spyro.
Need for Speed Underground HD Collection
Need for Speed: Underground
Need for Speed: Underground 2
These two games in my opinion were the best in the Need for Speed series and captured the thrill and customization of illegal street racing. They focused on car customization and addicting racing and imitated the Fast and Furious films of the time. Pity I never got to try them online.
