When you say fun do mean instant gratification? Game that isn't hard to learn is nice and simple to enjoy?

In that category I would say: Katamari Demacy, Tekken 5, God of War games,Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, Jak and Daxter games,Sly Cooper games, Ratchet and Clank games. They are simple from the get go.

Zone of the Enders: the second runner. -one of the best action games on the ps2. Easy to get in to, and battles are a blast.

If your interested in mindless fun, try a Dynasty Warriors game. - Sort of a fan-based button-mashing cult, but they are still fun.

Shadow of the Colossus

Okami

Resident Evil 4 (you should actually get this for Wii if you have one)

The PS2 can't possibly be considered a legacy platform when new games are still being developed for it.
#21 Posted by wackoss (702 posts) -

Platformers: Sly, Maximo, Ape Escape (if you are younger or have kids who want to play.)

RPG: I prefer Dark Alliance (but Marvel ones are good for comic fans). Final Fantasy X is fun.

Burnout is good, but even old sports titles are fun.

Light gun games from namco, capcom, and sega are always a lot of fun (if you still use a crt tv).

The thing with PS2 games are that they're really cheap now, you can easily buy a big bundle of games off ebay for under $50. Even if you find out that you don't like a particular game, it's not a huge loss.
