PSXE Best Of The Best Poll Update: God Of War II Is King

This time, you guys stuck with your first choice.

So many times in recent Best of the Best Polls, the top seeds after the first week shuffled around a bit during Round 2, but for the Best PS2 Action/Adventure game, one title remained top dog from start to finish: God of War II. SCEA's amazing game is arguably the best overall PS2 game on the planet, and many gamers will even claim it's one of the finest action experiences in the history of the industry. With an immense amount of polish, professionalism, intensity, and brutal over-the-top combat, this sequel somehow managed to improve on the near-perfection of the original God of War. This was the type of game that essentially proved to everyone just how capable the PS2 really was; if you were looking for the "hidden power," SCEA found it for you in GoWII. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater stayed solid to claim the Silver medal while Your Favorite Grand Theft Auto hung on for the Bronze. All three are legitimate masterpieces, so we understand just how difficult this choice probably was for many of you. The final standings are:

Gold Medal: God of War II

Silver Medal: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Bronze Medal: Your Favorite Grand Theft Auto

So we're moving on to the next category, which is Best PS2 Fighter. Again, we expect it to be a close race, and the winner should have a shot at a medal in the Best Overall PS2 award later on. We appreciate all the votes thus far, and we want you to keep it up...vote away, friends, vote away.

Yes!
You can't mess with such a badass character!

MGS3 is really the only game which comes close to be just as good.

The thing 'bout the 2 GOW games is that they're so fun.

I loved GOW2 for it's cinematic appeal. Not even a next-gen sequel of the same acronymn had even exceeded it in that sense. It really set the standard for the industry, even though it wasn't the first, and many games followed suit. And no other game captured the level of expression, angst, and satisfying ferocity as was captured with Kratos. It was also one of the first games that really empowered you to brutalise bosses, instead of just stategically pecking away at them over long periods of time (OK, MK did that, too). It was also the first game where I actually felt bad for the bad guys! But as for the adrenaline rush I get from some action games, DMC1 & DMC3 remained king for me...DMC1 for it's subbosses (shadow cats remain the best enemies in the history of gaming), and DMC3se for it's intense boss-fights, bedazzling variety of move-sets, and the best playable anti-hero and bossfight in the history of gaming, Vergil. Anyone ever play the last boss fight in DMD mode? I know, probably only a hardcore thing.

Metal Gear should've won :( And on a sidenote, how come Marvel vs Capcom 2 isn't on the new survey? That one gets my vote for the best PS2 fighter.

meh i still think mgs2 is the best of teh lot, as for the fighting vote, i vote for Tekken Tag, i cant stand the new Tekken style, all people /CPU do now is just hit you in the air and keep hacking away at you while you cant do anything to defend yourself, it sucks, and on T6 there bringing in the floor bounce tech. god thats going to be terriblei can imagine people smacking there opponents like bouncy balls, i miss classic tekken, might play T3 now actually.
