List RulesVote up your favorite PlayStation 2 video game characters. Must be on PlayStation 2 only.

The second iteration of the PlayStation console has proven to be one of the more popular consoles in history. As it staved off competition from Microsoft and Sega, it also incorporated online multiplayer -- something that hadn't been done before on a console, which is a very weird thing to say. Yes, at one point, video game consoles did not connect to the Internet. This list is all about those characters from these video games that appeared only on the PlayStation 2 (for consoles; we're not counting PC or Mac). 

Sony had a great number of exclusive titles that went on to great commercial and critical acclaim, and from those titles came a number of video game characters that many consider iconic today. Whether a popular RPG that's since won awards, or a tactical stealth shooter in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, that showed the original in this era of Metal Gear was no fluke, there is many a character that has affected us in impactful ways. 

When you look through this list, get ready to enjoy the trip down memory lane, with game series that were just beginning to become a household name, and series that have since died out and remain on the dustbin to this day. Vote for your favorites and see what games it might be time to revisit after a long absence!
