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 strategy games in your collection. Using your brain to solve puzzles and battle opponents is a ton of fun, and with turn-based games, puzzles, tower defense games and more, there are unlimited options to explore. With so many choices to pick 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 strategy games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling strategy 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 poll contains items like Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and La Pucelle: Tactics.
