The PS2 Birthday Thread: 20 Years Ago A Classic Launched ! [Post Your Favorite Games]
 

 
Yo Boxden. . .

It's PS2's Birthday Today !

Funny how time flies when your having fun.

Who remember the release date and what were some of favorite games on this console ?



Here's the full drop . . .
_________________________

In brief: It's hard to believe but today marks the 20th anniversary of the Playstation 2, a console that converted millions of people into lifelong
gamers. Are you one of them?

Sony released the successor to its original Playstation in Japan on March 4, 2000, although gamers in other regions would have to wait more than seven additional months for local launches. The console boasted improved graphics, backward compatibility with original PS games and the ability to play DVDS.

For some, the Playstation 2 doubled as their first DVD player.

Looking back at the console's North American launch titles, there isn't
really anything that stands out as a platform-defining game. Several
franchises did get their start on the console, however, including God of
War, Devil May Cry and Ratchet & Clank. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas still holds the title of best- selling PS2 game ever.

What are some ofyour best memories or favorite games from the PS2 era?

I was a diehard conso]e gamer up until my late teens when the PC abruptly
captured all of my attention, just before the PS2 launched. As such, I
don't really have many fond memories of the console aside from the few
hours logged when playing at friends' houses.

Burnout 3: Takedown is a racing video game developed by Criterion Games and published by Electronic Arts. It is the third instalment in the Burnout series, which is characterised by fast-paced arcade racing. A staple of the series is the use of boost, earned through risky driving, to rapidly increase a car's speed. The central mechanic introduced in Burnout 3 is Takedowns, which allow players to slam their opponents until they crash. Takedowns work in conjunction with the boost system by filling up and extending the boost meter. Aside from standard circuit races, the game features modes focused on performing Takedowns on rival vehicles and causing monetary damage at a junction occupied with traffic. Each game variant is featured in a single-player campaign mode called World Tour, which serves as the primary method for unlocking new and faster cars. The game supports both online and split-screen multiplayer.




Upon release, Burnout 3: Takedown received critical acclaim from the video game press becoming one of the highest rated racing video games of all time and is considered by many to be one of the greatest video games of all time. Critics were enthused by the shift to a more aggressive style of racing game and the addition of gameplay mechanics like Takedowns. The addictive gameplay and visuals were widely praised by reviewers, many of whom ranked Burnout 3: Takedown among the best games released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. The game went on to win numerous awards including three from the British Academy Games Awards. Retrospective coverage of the game has been highly positive with some publications declaring it as the greatest arcade racer game ever made and the peak of the Burnout series.
