What PS2 Classics Should Grace The PlayStation Network?
You know, this isn't as straightforward a question as one might think.
The biggest reason is the horde of remastered PS2 classics; those excellent productions from the last generation that have received high-definition overhauls. That includes big names like God of War, ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, and Metal Gear Solid (HD iterations for the latter are coming soon). And because the PS2 classics that arrive on the PSN will not be remastered, nor will they offer Trophies, are we only talking about lesser games?
Maybe the classics deserve the HD/Trophy treatment as a re-release. It's all fine and good for titles like God Hand, Ring of Red, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, GrimGrimoire, and Odin Sphere to come as they are to the PS2, but would gamers expect huge classics like Final Fantasy XII to go HD? Final Fantasy X already is. So maybe we're looking at the games that were more niche...maybe a bunch of RPGs? How's about Dragon Quest VIII? Or Suikoden V? Or Legaia 2: Duel Saga? Or Shadow Hearts: Covenant? I just think this is the perfect way for the PS2 RPGs to shine...they won't get HD remasters, but they still have fans!
