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

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.
