Default PSXE's Best of the Best Polls: PS2 Overall

Our Best of the Best Poll series will continue to run and we'll tackle just about everything. The first on the list is the Best PS1 RPG, and we'll move through the different genres from there on; then, we'll do the same for the PS2, PSP and PS3. We'll also do things like "Best Storyline," "Best Graphics," etc.

Keep all discussion on these polls in here, please. We will update this thread with the results every week. If there are enough top nominees in the subject at hand, we'll do two rounds. We'll weed out the lesser nominees in the first round and establish the victor in the second round; we will award Gold, Silver and Bronze medals for the top 3 vote getters. I'll add those in here, too.

Best PS1 RPG Results:

Gold: Final Fantasy VII

Silver: Final Fantasy VIII

Bronze: Chrono Cross

Best PS1 Fighter Results:

Gold: Tekken 3

Silver: Mortal Kombat Trilogy

Bronze: WWF SmackDown!

Best PS1 Action/Adventure Results:

Gold: Metal Gear Solid

Silver: Resident Evil 2

Bronze: Spyro: Year of the Dragon

Best PS1 Sports/Racing Results:

Gold: Gran Turismo 2

Silver: Crash Team Racing

Bronze: Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit

Best PS1 Special:

Gold: Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

Silver: Resident Evil 3: Nemesis

Bronze: Silent Hill

Best PS1 Overall:

Gold: Metal Gear Solid

Silver: Final Fantasy VII

Bronze: Tekken 3

So the readers have chosen Metal Gear Solid in an extremely narrow victory over Final Fantasy VII, and eventually, MGS will face off against the overall winners from the PS2, PSP and PS3 Polls. Congrats, MGS (even though I still think it should be FFVII).

Best PS2 RPG:

Gold: Final Fantasy X

Silver: Kingdom Hearts II

Bronze: Final Fantasy XII

Best PS2 Platformer:

Gold: Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal

Silver: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy

Bronze: Maximo: Ghosts to Glory

Best PS2 Action/Adventure:

Gold: God of War II

Silver: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Bronze: Your Favorite Grand Theft Auto

Best PS2 Fighter:

Gold: Tekken 5

Silver: WWE SmackDown: Here Comes The Pain

Bronze: Soul Calibur III

Best PS2 Sports/Racing:

Gold: Gran Turismo 4

Silver: Burnout Revenge

Bronze: Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition

well if you only played one rpg on the ps1 then does it still count. Or do u need to play more. If it's okay to just have played one than i would vote for ff7. And yeah i know, "how could you have only played one rpg on the ps1?". To my defense though i was like 6ish when i got it so cut me a break. And i would of played some like tactics but now a days those games are hard to come buy.

I know how you feel man. I haven't played most of those but that was due to age too. Out of the ones I have played It is a hard pick, I love FFVII but I just had to vote for Tactics Because that game has enthralled me to play more than any other RPG except maybe Lost Odyssey.

Please tell me you're not actually doing multiple rounds for this PS1 RPG thing. That topic was designed for FF7 to win. It will dominate. Can we please move on?

I gotta say though, Parasite Eve was one of the first and best RPG's i played on the PSX. I still own and play a copy to this day. But i can understand why it wasn't included. The PSX was an RPG machine so it's impossible to caiter to everyone. I can't wait for the next Polls.

Thanks for adding Xenogears, Ben, it was my fav on the ps, although i loved the addictiveness of Tactics. Most of those games were exceptionally fun, but i totally loved Xenogears, the whole experience...

I voted for FFVII. It was the first real JRPG I played and nothing has compared since, especially when I've only really played three other games in the poll. I really did enjoy Wild Arms too, but I lost the game and never finished it.

Just because it seems like a foregone conclusion, we have to be fair. It's going to get treated like every other genre.

I voted the only RPG I ever played on the PS1. FFIX.
