We can still play PS2 games on a PC or laptop using an application, which is usually called an emulator.

The emulator in question is PCSX2. Actually, it’s been around for quite a while. But if you’ve just heard it, let’s discuss it here.

Getting to Know the PCSX2 Application

Getting to Know the PCSX2 Application

PCSX2 is an open-source PS2 game emulator application that was initially released stable in 2016.

Intended for 4 operating systems at once, namely Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android.

The purpose of making this application, among others, is to develop and enable computer users, to be able to play PS2 games without using the console directly.

Functionally, I’ve also tried it myself, and it’s pretty good. My favorite game can be run here without any significant problems.

Specifications For PCSX2 (System Requirements)

The PC or laptop used must meet the minimum requirements of PCSX2 so that it runs smoothly when used.

Berikut system requirements PCSX2:

Minimum System Requirements Recommended System Requirements
Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64 (or above). Intel Core i3, i5, i7, or AMD Phenom X4 3.2Ghz (or better).
Any GPU that supports Pixel Shader 2.0 (except certain series). NVIDIA 8800GT (Dengan support minimal DirectX10).
512MB or 2GB RAM (for Vista). 1GB RAM (XP) or 2GB (Vista or 7).

Of course, it will be much better if you use a higher computer specification.

Based on my experience too, the perceived performance is also influenced by what games are played later.
