YOUR Top 3 GC/PS2/XBox games

With this era drawing to a close, what are you top three for each system? Please only list games you own and like, as this is 'YOUR' list and not a self-important 'THE' list. And if you feel strongly enough about an upcomming game (i.e. new Zelda) than feel free to list it too.
(While you aren't restricted to listing a top three for all three, it would be nice)


1. Resident Evil
2. Metroid Prime
3. Eternal Darkness

Honorable Mention: Resident Evil 4

Playstation 2

1. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
2. Silent Hill 2
3. Grand Theft Auto III: San Andreas

Honorable Mention: Ico


1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
2. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
3. Halo 2

Honorable Mention: Ninja Gaiden

Games I'm hyped for
The Last of Us Part 2, RE2 Remake, The Last Night

Current Platforms:
PC (Zen9 5950x, 64GB, RTX 3090), PS5

-Metroid Prime

Honourable Mention: DDR 7th & 8th Mix (Whay can I say? The game never gets boring. Mea Culpa. :p)

As for best multiplatform games:

As for ICO, that could be easily replaced by Shadow of the Colossus, which is looking real damn fine. I can't wait.

Playstation 2

Devil May Cry 3 (awesome awesome game. I'm still trying to beat hard mode and haven't even delved into Royal Guard yet)
Guilty Gear X2 (best fighting game in recent years.)
Silent Hill 2 (possibly the best old school S/H game to come along this gen.)


Resident Evil 4 (if other survival horror games don't adopt the gameplay aspects of this one, you're going to see them getting killed in reviews)
Metroid Prime (I still have some nostalgiac feelings about this one even though I did not like the sequel)
Viewtiful Joe (I would have said this was the best action game this gen until DMC3 came along)

Theres a lot of titles that im hoping will be better than these. I have yet to buy some of the high profile releases has well. So, im counting those out has of now.

1. Grandia 2 (yes, this is a joke and not a joke at the same time. This one belongs in the DC top 3 in number one. I just dont have anything i feel like listing in number one for PS2. Im hoping thats changing with many juicy upcoming releases.)
2. Silent Hill 2 Directors Cut ( Masterpiece! Story... mood... characters... theres everything is the right ammounts in this game. Everyone should get a copy since this appears to have been a fluke. Never again did a Silent Hill game came close to the level of quality this one has. Actually, i think they dont even know why this one worked so well given what they did with the sequals.)
3. Capcom VS SNK 2 (I still play this one!! How many years have it been since it released?)

Honorable Mention: Kingdom Hearts (Yes, awful in the first hours, but then it takes off for a pretty enjoyable ARPG. The only good effort by square i can think of so far in this generation.)

1. Zelda Master quest (Honestly!! Its the game that i enjoyed playing the most so far on the GC. The GC was my first Nintendo system, so this was the first time i played Ocarina of Time. The rumors were true. The game is a heck of a game . Anyways im expecting Zelda TP or Fire Emblem to take this spot in the future).
2. F-Zero GX ( Im not ashamed to say this game uterly defeated me. Theres just so much to unlock, and theres enjoyable playability, sound and graphics has well. And the dificulty... needless to say this one consumes you and your self esteem pretty easily.)
3. Baten Kaitos (I admit. This game caught me off guard, and even though i havent completed it yet due to lack of free time, and even though i have my picks with it... its a nice adventure. The type i havent felt since the PSone. Look forward for my complete review of this one in mid June )

Honorable mentions: Soul Calibur 2 (Liiiink!!!)
Skies of Arcadia Legends (this one belongs in the DC top 3 has well ^^)
Sonic Mega Collection (and this one belongs in the Genesis top3 )

1. SW: Knights of the old Republic (this game justified my purchase of an Xbox by itself)
2. Panzer Dragoon Orta (yes, those last levels were crap but the first 6 are wonderful)
3. SW: Knights of the old Republic 2: the sith lords (thats a pretty long title. I know, its not nearly has good has the first one but im yet to buy Ninja Gaiden Black and Jade Empire. Im hoping one of those two takes this spot in the future.)

Honorable Mention: Jet set Radio Future (somehow i didnt have has much fun with this one has i had with the DC version. I wonder why?...)
