13 of The Longest Living Playstation 2 Multiplayer Games

1 of 9

With recent news of EA no longer supporting several PC and PS2 titles, it feels appropriate to honor those few stand out titles that have survive two new sets of console releases. These games have stood the test of time and maintained active servers to this day. Some (most notably Star Wars: Battlefront 2) were even still being produced and sold new at a few retailer outlets.

    I think that FFXIV has, or is close to overtaking FFXI now in playerbase.

    Square-Enix still has messages posted about character creation restrictions, although not nearly as bad as it was at release, the game is still growing strong and with the Ps4 release it now spans two generations of consoles and is a part of a very, very select few MMO's to offer multiple platform availability so I don't think it will take too long for it to surpass FFXI myself.

    That being said... FFXI is still showing a strong playerbase, and is even still getting minor expansions and Square-Enix has stated they will continue to support the game as long as the fans still show support for it. I think if they made 1 subscription cover both games it would be a home run.

    I was never into multiplayer; just the local multiplayer.

    And for that, I was all about games like Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath. :)

    So ye've said, although you never explained why.

    Norrath's actually one I missed. Apparently it's still active online as well. Dark Alliance isn't though, sadly.

    Never explained why I wasn't into online multiplayer? Long story; let's just say I despise it for a variety of reasons.

    Norrath was awesome. SO much fun with a friend.

    *Shrug* I can respect that. I'll leave my feelings on games like Uncharted likewise at that.

    Hmm, may try finding it then. Got a local co-op buddy who loves multiplayer RPGs and a spare PS2 controller.
