So officially the PS2 dropped in 2000 (March in Japan, October in North America), but it didn't get any good, must-have games until around that mid-late '01 period. I remember Devil May Cry being a pretty big deal, FFX was hyped up like crazy, and of course GTA 3 was the influential open world juggernaut. My issue is that...why did it take so long for the system to get any worthwhile games? It had some decent launch or early games like TimeSplitters, SSX, Smuggler's Run, TekkenTagTourney, and DOA2 HC were well received enough, but we also got a glut of garbage & forgettable launch/early titles like Orphen, Street Fighter Ex3, Kessen, Evergrace, X-Squad, Silent Scope, Eternal Ring, and Surfing H30. Dude, those games frickin SUCKED & nobody talks about them anymore. Hell, nobody talked about them back THEN. I mean, I complain because Dreamcast had been around for a while before that and it was FULL of really cool & unique games. How come Sony didn't get any classics right off the bat the way DC did? What was the POINT of buying a PS2 in its first year, when it virtually had NO classic games?
