i dont know if you would consider a classic but guitar hero 1 and 2 are very fun to play but also very expensive. if you like rpgs final fantasy X was very good also.

Gran Turismo 3 is wicked fun, my most favorite racing game of all time.
God of War is ridiculously brutal and fun.
Devil May Cry 3 is AWESOME.. And so hard, so so hard.
Oh and of course Guitar Hero I and II (both as good as the other).. Or as I like to call it.. crack.
I never owned a PS2, but I spent a lot of time playing Metal Gear Solid 2 on my roommate's box.
PS2 Top five: (Subject to my own opinion.)
Metal Gear Solid 3
Metal Gear Solid 2
Devil May Cry 3 (One of the hardest games ever)
Dynasty Warriors 5
Dynasty Warrior 4
My personal must-own. I'd be sad without em.
if you ever like final fantasy tactics, i recommend Disgaea I or II.
Somewhat in descending order (hard to rank because this is a big mix of genres, and they're all very good)
Beyond Good & Evil
Escape from Monkey Island
Dark Alliance (2 is okay but just didn't grab me for some reason)
Sly Cooper 2 & 3 (I didn't care for 1 as much)
Ratchet & Clank series
Devil May Cry 1 & 3
R-type Final (old school gameplay but modern graphics)
Katamari Damancy 1 or 2 (one is probably enough)
Games I bought but haven't had time to play, but I think they might be in the Best list:
Shadow of the Colossus
Kingdom Hearts 2 (the fighting got old eventually in 1, I hear it's better in 2)
Others worth considering:
Dark Cloud series, kinda Zelda lite
Justice League (better than the similar Marvel titles IMO)

Racing: The Burnout series. Crashes rule.
Music: Amplitude, GH1 and GH2
Adventure/Violence: Grand Theft Auto games
Shooters: All pretty good, Black is cheap, now, but I haven't played (but have heard good things)
Other fun games:
ATV Offroad Fury
That's all I have right now... PS2 just has soooo many games...

Marvel Vs. Capcom 2
And any of the games Ashilizator noted.
I agree with Kingdom Hearts 2 just as long as you can bear the stupidly prolonged intro to the game where you don't do much except for fight a few crappy enemies and a decent boss.
Grandia 2 is a very good RPG in my eyes, especially for how much you can get it for.
Dynasty Warriors series is brilliant (except for number 2, not enough secrets or options in that one)
Syberia 2 is also one which will keep you occupied/confused for long periods of time :)

Given that you said "classics", how can any list be complete without some Lara?
Daughter no.1 (for that read me) received Tomb Raider Legend (no.7) from Santa a while back and I love it :)
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex

These are the game i loved:
Dark Alliance 2
Grand Turismo 3
Twisted Metal Black
The Legacy of Kain series (4 games)
BloodRayne (1 & 2)

How did 2 people mention Gran Turismo 3 without anyone speaking of GT4?

Jak 2 and 3
June 30 2007 8:53 AM EDT
and timesplitters 2 and 3
Okami and Shadow of the Collosus
Play these games before you die, you will be glad you did :D

i used to play my ps2 non stop but im much more of a casual gamer now.
if you want some "pick up and play" action, try Battlefield 2
any Medal Of Honor titles [all under 10 im sure]
the Dynasty Warrior series
Final Fantasy 10
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas [cant believe nobodies mentioned it]
Armored Core series [probably the funnest game to play with someone else besides guitar hero]
Arc The Lad series
Xenosaga 1-3 [strange story but i like it]
Dragon Warrior 8
Kingdom Hearts 1&2
Soul Calibur 2
all of those should be pretty easy to find in bargain bins and give you a ton of replay value. enjoy :]
