you can't play every ps 2 game on pc but it is partially possible. You need 2 things, one of them is an emulator and the best ps2 emulator is not hard to find. The name of it is pcsx 2. After that, you need to find a bios file. It is not easy to find it everywhere because sony playstation 2's bios file is copyrighted by sony, so you should find and download it from somewhere or somehow take it from a ps2 machine. After that you are ready to run games but as the pcsx2 is just an emulator and is made by people who just "love" to do coding and programming in their spare times, it is not an official program. So there can be many errors. go to wwww.pcsx2.net to download the file and to read more about the emulator. Before you download the game,get the emulator and read the compatibility list. It can't run all of the games but only a few of them. you should download the games which say "playable" next to it. I had downloaded fifa street 2 for example, I didn't know about the compatibility list (later I checked and it was saying "intro" for that game) I was only able to see the menus, choose players etc. but not play it...

well, each and every word said by the"rular is correct. but you can try searching any P2P software for the bios file and PS2 ISO files.

That's impossible. You can rip parts of its contents (like lotsa people did with gta) but you can't play it.

Wow... that's a development that somehow happened behind my back. When I was trying to run a ps2 game on my computer last time I horribly failed =D
