List Rules Only RPGs that were released on the PS2; they do not need to be PS2 exclusives. No platformers or beat-em-ups. Vote up the top games.

If you owned a Playstation 2 at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few RPGs in your collection. There's something about role playing games that really capture your imagination and make you feel like you're part of another world. Your party always has colorful characters, the abilities you gain along the way are amazing, and boss battles are usually nothing short of epic. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best PS2 RPGs of all time. This list will feature the most popular and best selling RPGs that were released for Playstation 2.

While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This list features items like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy XII, and many more. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
