The lights are on
I picked up a PS3 this morning thanks to the $50 off sales going on. We've been wanting one for a while just because it was close enough in price to a mid-range Blu-Ray player and there are any number of titles I've been wanting to check out. It's great that I have a lot of backlog to burn through, as most titles are older at this point and I can enjoy many games for $15 a piece.
Unfortunately, when I actually look at the shelves at my local retailers, I start blanking out on what I wanted. Here's my list of games, and I'd love for anyone to throw in their recommendations. As I already have a 360, outside of upcoming releases, I'd like to focus on PS3 Exclusives since that's why I bought the system.
This morning I grabbed:
Infamous 1 and 2 combo pack
I'm looking forward to:
Last of Us
I know there are quite a few games I've noted over the years, but I need help jogging my memory. Thanks!
If you want an awesome exclusive get the god of war series! Also ascension is coming out in march. But if you're not into that get bioshock infinite for the ps3, the ps3 version comes with the first bioshock game! Two birds with one stone.
God of War 3 and the HD reissues! Thanks, I can't believe I forgot those.
Sly Cooper is in HD on the PS Store, yeah?
Metal Gear Solid, all of it.
LittleBig Planet (if you like platformers and fun)
Uncharted series is pretty good
Ratchet and Clank series (I'd ignore All4One, for now at least)
for some more, here you go: en.wikipedia.org/.../Category:PlayStation_3-only_games
Journey and Papa & Yo are great indies
Also the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus collection will catch you up on great PS2 games
Okami HD. That is all.
I too have wanted a ps3 for the longest time so I have my own list of ps3 exclusives that I really want. Top of that list is
The Ratchet and Clank series
The Uncharted series
If you post it, they will troll.
Holy ***, where to begin? When it comes to HD collections heres a few you can't skip:
Jak and Daxter
Ratchet and Clank
Ico and Shadow of the Collosus
God of War Saga (5 games for $40? No brainer on that one...)
Devil May Cry
As for games, great call on Heavy Rain, I guess I would also recommend:
Metal Gear Solid 4 (especially now that they've added trophy support)
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time
3D Dot Game Hero
and MLB The Show
Hope this helps a bit
What?! How can you blank on awesome games like Uncharted 1-3 and MGS? Definitley buy those along with LittleBigPlanet. Also, get the Playstation Plus services. Its $50 a year, and you get like 4 GOOD games a month. You should check it out.
One died in India. Three was tracked down in Brazil. I am the only one left. I am The Second Musketeer
Assassins creed series
Modern Warfare 1,2,&3
Dead space 1&2
yeah that all i can think of know but they've all been top game of the year games.
Thanks for the recommendations, guys! I blank out at book stores all the time, too, even when I keep a list.
I picked up Uncharted 2 and it makes me want to grab 3. I definitely need to get Metal Gear Solid 4 and Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD ASAP.
If you picked up Heavy Rain well done! Super good game. Play the Uncharted series. God of War (after Ascension comes out) and then definitely The Last of Us. Welcome to Team PS3!
I would strongly advise playing all of the Metal Gear Solid games, not just 4 (unless you already have). 1 is available through PSN; 2 (the best in my opinion), 3 (second best, again, in my opinion), and Peacewalker (worst, but it was a PSP game so it is forgivable) are all available on the HD collection; and then 4 is separate. While it is not necessary to play them all in order it is probably the best way. I have many friends who played only 4 and regretted it, there is a deep story that can be confusing if you jump in at the end. Not to mention they're all amazing games and among my favorite of all time.
If you do heed my advise, play Peacewalker last, it is pretty inconsequential to the story and after playing through the first 4 chances are you will be burnt out on stealth games for some time.
I would recommend Max Payne 3, Street Fighter 4; the original Medal of Honor. also, if you like open-ended games with big open maps I'd recommend the Assassin's Crees series. If you like racing games, I'd recommend any Need for Speed games; Gran Turismo 5 too. The racing games, I think are more tailored towards the PS3 controls. That's just my two cents.
I'm a gamer; a lover of music!
