List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for PlayStation 2 at some point.

If you owned a PS2 at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few adventure games in your collection. There's something about exploring new places, finding treasure and fighting enemies that makes adventure games so addicting. 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 adventure games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling adventure games that were released for PS2. 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 Resident Evil 4, Farenheit and more.
