There are a lot of people in this world that would happily admit that the PS2 is one of the greatest video game consoles of all time, and of course, there are those who won’t. Us here at Push Start Podcast are in agreement that it is, in our opinion of course. 14 years of new game releases, 18 years of online servers, 1400+ video games released, it’s hard to argue against it’s claim to GOAT status.

If you’ve listened to the podcast before, you know that, while we love all video games, Christian, Caddy and Matt are big SONY fans, and they relive some big memories of the PS2 days, discuss some great titles and franchises that appeared on the console, and each come up with a Top 10 list that’s sure to stir up some nostalgia.

This episode is a deep conversation by the Push Start Crew with a great learning curve!
