For me, Smackdown vs Raw 2006 is my favourite. For the PS2, the graphics were awesome. Plus, the features of the game were great, too. GM Mode was fantastic IMO, a really stacked roster. The only con of GM Mode is some superstar's popularity (ex: Orton should've been higher than 74, Kane, Flair, Jericho, Guerrero, Mysterio should've been a little higher). Other than that, I think it was the best SVR ever produced. I also wanted to say that the season mode in SVR 2006 is personally the best I've ever played, so much creativity. Other games that I wanted to mention are: Smackdown HCTP, & SVR 2011

Probably Here Comes the Pain. Never liked the Smackdown series and was a late adopter to PS2. When I finally bought one I believe HCTP was the first one I played and fell in love with it realizing the series has improved greatly since PS1.

Funny enough, both HCTP and SVR 2006 are my two favorite ps2 titles in the series. HCTP is essentially the most polished arcade style game, taking what made SmackDown 2 great and taking it to the max.
Likewise, SVR 2006 took what made HCTP so great and added more depth and some realistic elements (not as hindering as today's attempts however). In a sense, SVR 2006 is the best balance between arcade and simulation gameplay.
