I'm not a huge gamer,  but the original Sims game gave me and my sister HOURS of entertainment as kids. We didn't even have any expansion packs, just whatever came in the deluxe version. I've been curious to try FreeSO, the Sims Online reboot created by fans, to indulge my nostalgia for the game, since the disc I have for my old sims game doesn't work on my new PC. :(

I still religiously play my old consoles, especially my PS2. I recently even bought a big CRT TV (Sony Trinitron) to play them more clearly on. Ya know, to avoid resolution stretching and such.

It's hard to pick favorites but I'll do like a half hearted top 10.

10. Ratchet & Clank (PS2 2002)
9. The Sims 3 (PC 2009))
8. Star Wars: Battlefront II (PS2 2005)
7. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2 2004)
6. Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven (PS2 2003)
5. Devil May Cry 3 (PS2 2005)
4. Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (PS2 2005)
3. Little Big Planet (PS3 2008)
2. Halo 3 (Xbox 360 2007)
1. Maximo: Ghosts To Glory (PS2 2001)

It's hard to pick actual favorites of course so some of those are interchangeable, and I may even be forgetting something. They're also not what I think is objectively the best, just my personal favorites.

The Tony Hawk's franchise has for sure some of the best games of the early 2000's. Pro Skater 4 and Underground 2 in particular are fantastic games

mario kart wii. probably a bias because i put a few too many hours into grinding for every character/vehicle but it still is really fun and theres still an active fanbase for the game, which kinda proves how much it held up

I played LOTS of PS2 when I was growing up.

I loved the Sims Bustin Out, The Sims 2 Pets, and just the Sims 2 for the PS2 as well. Other games I played were Bully, the GTA games, Mortal Kombat games, Crash Bandicoot, and also a random barbie game that was a huge part of my childhood lol.

For computer games, I played Toontown Online mostly. Sometimes played MovieStarPlanet, was never a big fan at all.

Silent Hill 2, it's a masterpiece. I didn't play it on its days because I was a child, but heck, the best game of the 2000s in my opinion. Definitely SH2 was one of the best experiences in my life
