LOL at the PS5 description.

I'd say the PS4 has been my favorite. I can see the PS5 surpassing it at some point, but if it does, it will take a while. Mostly, I've loved the PS4 library, the ease of use, the ease of streaming, and I like the controller. Small tweaks that I think really improved the classic controller. I don't loooove the layout, but I like it a lot better than Microsoft's.

Definitely the PS2. If you didn't have a PS2 back in the early 2000's you weren't a proper gamer. The PS2 may not have had the best graphics for its console generation but they were clear enough and still decent. And crash bandicoot wrath of cortex did have stupidly long loading times on the PS2 until they brought out the platinum/greatest hits version (The Xbox version is better downloaded onto the Xbox 360 hard drive though for way faster loading times). Also Soul Calibur 2 on the PS2 didn't have Link so the GameCube version was better.

But the PS2 had the greatest games and if you missed out on a PS1 (The Nintendo 64 was better at the time to be fair) then you could buy a PS2 to play some of the decent PS1 games you missed out on. GTA 3, vice city, San Andreas, The Getaway, WWE Smackdown Here Comes the Pain, DMC 1,2,3 and way more games were released on the PS2 first. And the PS2 was the best console to experience multiplatform games for their time too on their time of release.

Hell the PS2 was the best console ever until the Xbox 360 was released (The later models after 2008 when the red ring of death wasn't a problem anymore). Xbox 360 is better than PS3, Xbox One X is better than PS4 Pro and Xbox Series X is better than PS5. Xbox certainly overtook PlayStation with console gaming and has a much better online service and better apps too.

But the PS2 will always by far be the greatest console of the early 2000's.

Oh shoot. I definitely leaned on recency bias. I love the PS4 in no small part because I still use it and the games still largely hold up. But if I think about things for their time, the PS2 was essential to getting me into gaming in the first place. Classic machine with a truly great library. I think it's easy to favor modern consoles because of all the fancy bells and whistles - like I stream a lot of movies on my PS4, too, which obviously you can't do on PS2.

So in a modern sense, I say PS4. But with historical perspectives, the PS2 was hands down more quintessential for me. A lot of those games, unfortunately, don't hold up well today. But they also laid the groundwork for a good number of my favorite games of the last ten years, as well.

Why is Deathloop on the enhanced Spider-Man console and not the Series X? I thought Microsoft owned Bethesda now

Holy shit I didn't actually think anyone heard of Monkey Hero for PS1.

PS2 was my favorite though tbf, I only realyl owned a PS1 and PS2. I haven't owned a PlayStation in some time due to alot of the games that I would play on my other PS consoles came out on PC. That and I am not fussed enough about the Playstation exclusives just yet.

They do, but the timed console exclusive deal with the studio predates Microsoft buying Bethesda.

I am not actually sure. I was never able to get a physical copy of it myself as it didn't exist here I lived (I played it on emulation years later).

I can say Legend of Dragoon was one of those games that had issues with the PS2. I think after one of the Major boss battles the game has a chance to softlock (I think it's towards the end of Disk 2 out of a 4 disk game).

Loved LoD, a shame they never continued it.

I did too. It's a shame it came out around the time the juggernauts of RPG's came out.

I'd say for me it's a tie between 2 and 4. I played a lot of amazing games on the ps2 and it was really the console that really made me a gamer. I had a sega genesis before I had a ps2, but I didn't play it as often as I did the ps2. Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, the Sly Cooper trilogy, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, X-Men Age of Apocalypse, Yugioh Duelist of the Roses, Yugioh Forbidden Memories, and Dynasty Warriors 4 were some of the amazing games I played back in the day. The ps4 has given me some amazing games as well. The Kingdom Hearts collection, FFX HD Remastered, Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War 4, Insomniac's Spider-Man, Nier Automata, The Witcher 3, and Final Fantasy XV are just a few of my favorites. If I had to pick between them I'd probably pick ps2 due to nostalgia

My desktop, because it can play PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4 games. The PS2, if that doesn't count.
