After its debut in Japan, Sony’s PlayStation 2 arrived in North America on October 26, 2000. Its launch roster featured over 20 names—games like Volition’s Summoner, Rockstar’s Midnight Club, or Eidos’ TimeSplitters. Happy 15th to all of them.

Apart from the three above games, quite a few series got their start on the PS2, all of which inspired plenty of fanart. Let’s look at some examples.
