10 Video Games You'll Never Forget If You Had A PS2


10 Video Games You'll Never Forget If You Had A PS2

In 2001 I received one of the greatest gifts. A Playstation 2 (PS2). I felt like the coolest kid because my cousin bought me my first real video gaming system. Eventually I grew up and started killing zombies in Call of Duty and the Last of Us, but I grew up with some of the greatest games ever created. So for all of the kids that grew up with a Playstation 2, let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? Countdown of 10 great and memorable Playstation 2 games:

10) "Silent Hill 2"

Guiding James Sunderland through Silent Hill to find his deceased wife. This game gave me nightmares. I never bought a scary video game after this!

9) "Crash Nitro-Kart"

Crash Bandicoot was awesome! This game in particular reminded me a lot of Mario Kart. Obviously nothing tops Mario Kart, but this tested my 1st grade friendships just the same!

8) "Hot Shots Golf 3"

Hot Shots Golf 3 was one of those games that was $10 in the clearance section because it wasn't a great game you'd want to play for hours, but it was cool enough to kill some time before mom was ready to go to the store. This game was given to me by my dad because he loved golf. I appreciated his effort to combine both of the things we liked into one!

7) "Spongebob Squarepants and Friends Unite!"

This game was one of my favorites as a kid because it was a mashup of some of my favorite Nickelodeon characters. The best part was I could play as any character I wanted! Plus, lets be real, girls - we all had a crush on Danny Phantom at one point or another!

6) "Okami"

Honestly, I played this game because I thought the dog was cute! But it ended up being one of my favorite games.

5) "Ratchet and Clank"

My friend owned this game so I only played the first one every now and then, but I remember spending hours playing this as kid. Brings back some great memories sitting in on rainy days!

4) "Tony Hawk's Underground 1 & 2"

Technically killing 2 birds with 1 stone, but oh well! These 2 games definitely gave me my sick sense of humor. After playing these games where I was basically a juvenile skateboarding kid running around town, I started watching "Viva La Bam" on tv and loved it. Bam Margera quickly became one of my favorite people as kid! I also started to learn how to skateboard and longboard after playing this video game.

3) "Sly Cooper 1, 2, & 3"

One of my favorite series! Three best friends with three different talents all working together to beat the bad guys! I spent HOURS playing this game as a kid. When I upgraded to a Playstation 3, I even bought the bundle they came out with for this game. That's how much I loved it as a kid!

2) "Jak and Daxter 1, 2, & 3"

The first game starts off with innocent Jak and then the next two games we get to watch Jak turn into a really cool bad boy who gains powers of light and dark. This game had so many cool powers and accessories, I could never decide what to use when it came to battle. I don't really know what kind of creatures any of the characters are, but I had a crush on Jak as a kid and always wanted my own Daxter sidekick!

1) "Kingdom Hearts 1 & 2"

You did not own a PS2 and not play this game. It just wasn't heard of. This game is legendary to me and my friends. I remember owning this in middle school and thinking it was the coolest game! A game that included Disney, what could be better!? Plus some famous actors voiced in these video games which made it even cooler! Brittany Snow, Haley Joel Osment, Hayden Panettiere, Mandy Moore, Jesse Mccartney, and so many more! How could you not want to play this!? I'm now 23 years old and have been patiently awaiting for Kingdom Hearts 3 to release for the Playstation 4 since 2005 when Kingdom Hearts 2 first released.

When I think of the amount of hours I spent playing video games, I don't regret it. I grew up with some really cool video games and made a lot of friends along the way! These games bring back some real nostalgia, I'm ready to fire up my video game systems and take a real trip back to memory lane. Call of Duty and Battlefield have nothing on these bad boys!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
