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!
Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank, God of War, and Infamous. They're all system exclusives and sit at the top of their respective genres.
Thanks for the recommendations! I grabbed Uncharted 1 and 2 in a combo pack for $14 and I've been hooked. Easily two of my favorite games ever, after having played them to completion.
I ended up returning Heavenly Sword and God of War 3 because I found them new for less than I paid used, and EB goofed up and returned them at twice the value I paid. So essentially paid off Last of Us for half price. Score.
Dont forget Metal Gear Solid 4 even if you have not played the series before it's a great game, also Midnight Club series if u like racing and custom cars and the God of War Series
Uncharted, Little Big Planet, and Ratchet and Clank amongst others. A lot of the exclusives are pretty good.
The uncharted series. It is a must own and I have never played a series that was more fun for me. Also I would look up Resistance and God of War. They are both amazing games and have so many great moments in them that it is worth it to own them.
Definitely going to be repeating some but that should just reinforce the need to get them!
Little Big Planet 2
Somebody probably suggested God of War and Uncharted and you should definitely buy those, but if you like racing games you should check out Gran Turismo 5, it's very realistic and extremely vast (1000+ cars, without the DLCs).
Let them hate, so long as they fear.
There are quite a few must play games on the Playstation 3. Since its so late in the consoles lifespan, how you pick your games will probably be determined by your favorite genre and picking up each publishers best titles. That list, however, can become very long and painful. Here are a few titles to start out with.
- Final Fantasy XIII
- L. A. Noire
- Fallout 3
- The Darkness
- Grand Theft Auto 4
- Batman: Arkham City
Skyrim, call of duty series, oblivion, dragon dogma, and assassins creed
Metal Gear Solid 4, Resident Evil, Skyrim, Infamous 2 and Uncharted.
Gamer. Writer. Reviewer. Carpe diem.
Journey, Journey, Journey, and Journey!
Oh yea, don't forget Journey!
And when you are done with that, get Journey The Collector's Edition.
I like all games from developer Rockstar but you may be familiar with those from your days on the 360. Journey is definitely a good PS3 exclusive... and cheap on the PS store. While it may be it may be a tad short for some, it has endless replay value and it will affect your emotional base at times. Definitely a rewarding ending. I would recommend becoming a Playstation Plus subscriber.
Welcome to the fold.

Uncharted and God of War series would go great with inFAMOUS.
Don't forget to try Red Dead Redemption :P
