They look awesome in those tiny little shots. Too bad they aren't a realistic representation of actual gameplay. I don't think anyone plays on tiny little LCD screens--the quality is somewhat lost when you strech it out over a 46" HD LCD screen.

FFXII & MGS3. The PS2 is quite a remarkable system, being able to have such a long life span and still produce games with respectable graphics even by todays standards.

I think Final Fantasy XII, Soul Nomad & the World Eaters (for a 2-D sprite world), Shin Megami Tensei - Persona 3 (awesome, stylishly artful characters, and I loved the anime cutscenes) and I would definitely put Dynasty/Samurai Warriors in there somewhere.

Then again, in a hack-'n-slash, what else can you put into a game?

A billion Characters, creation mode, story mode, weapons, outrageous kill counts...

Oh yeah, make the graphics top-notch, since that's all we can really do...

Sorry, a little off-topic.

Final Fantasy 12, Resident Evil 4, and Devil May Cry 4 looked great. And to think that the PS2 could put up such great graphics for these games.

Final fantasy 12 had execellent graphics even though I did not like the game much. The cgi scenes where breath taking.

seems like alot of people liked FFXII. I digged the artstyle, but it seemed...a little dated especially compared with other great RPGs (example: Valkyrie Profile 2)

Hey, are we talking about cut scenes or gameplay here?

FFX and FFXII were good for cut scenes and gameplay wasn't bad

MGS3 had amazing gameplay graphics but cutscenes looked quite similar.

Dragon Quest VIII. It was amazing. Art direction is more important than realism in gaming to me.

Tekken 5 supports progressive scan. 420P. Looks great too me on my PS2 using Component cables on my HDTV.

Progressive mode usually implies 480P (720x480) versus 480i (640x480).

Siren 2 looks amazing. I can't really find any high quality screens or good videos to screencap of it though.
