Multitap 4 Player PS2 Games

Seventh Gen consoles have dedicated themselves to online-gaming and old school split-screen is gone even from most racing games. This is not bad because finding someone to play online with is really easier than finding someone that can actually come to your place in order to play with you. However recently my friends come along to visit (usually my cousins) and when we want to play some game, two of us have to watch the others play, and it’s really annoying. That made me think that maybe I should buy a Multi-Tap for my good-old PS2. I did some searches on the web to find out what games support the multi-tap, and the results were not so nice. Usually people stated “PS2 doesn’t have any good 4 Player games”. However I gathered information about PS2 games that support Multi-Tap (Mostly from mobygames.com, but also from different forums and back cover of some games I already had) and then I compiled a list sorting them by their “Game Rankings” score (which is the average critic score) and the result was surprising! Not that PS2 has good 4 player games, but in fact it has lots of it. I had to censor most sports titles to prevent overcrowding and let the best game for each sport to stay on the list. So here’s the TOP50 4-Player PS2 Game: (click on the game title to go to its gamespot main page or click on the score to read its review)

UPDATE: I have confirmed that “Need for Speed Underground 2” for PS2 DOES NOT have 4-player multitap support. I regret the error.
