10 Best PS2 Games to Play For Its 20th Anniversary

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy still holds a special place in many a gamer’s hearts, and for good reason.

Set to the tale of a young man/elf/humanoid traveling in search of a cure for his friend’s transformation into an Otsel, this early-era PS2 game set players loose in a world full of sprawling jungles, ancient temples and massive fortresses.

Each location held a metric ton of collectibles to track down, secrets to uncover and bosses to defeat, hidden behind platforming and puzzles ranging from simple to dastardly.

Not only that, but it was all connected in an almost seamless manner (for the time, at least). Players could see locations they’d travel to in the distance, and feel a sense of accomplishment once their journey finally took them to a point that seemed so far away hours ago.

It was, and is, a true testament to what games could and would be like. And, as an added bonus, it’s only a few hours long, making it easy to hop back into to revisit its glory.
