The Best PlayStation 2 Football Games

List RulesGames 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 football games in your collection. Whether it's NFL or NCAA college football, taking the role of quarterback and slinging touchdown passes to teammates is one of the greatest joys a video game can bring you. 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 football games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling football 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. You can vote for any of these items, from Madden NFL 2002 to NCAA Football 06.

Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
