My personal favorites of the PS3/X360 Generation

1. Mass Effect series (you can't get the first one on PS3, but it does have some type of interactive coming you can do in the second one)

2. Gears of War series (again, you'll need a 360 for this)

3. Oblivion / Fallout 3/ Skyrim (I lump them together because they are all massive open-world rpg's made by Bethesda, and each one is fantastic)

4. Bioshock series

5. The Orange Box / Portal 2 (portal 1 is included on the orange box)

6. Dragon Age: Origins

(If you don't play anything else this generation, play those)

Hitman Absolution

Dead Space

Dishonored

Deus Ex Human Revolution

Infamous

Dead Island

Splinter Cell Blacklist

If you dig Superhero stories:

  • inFamous
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum

If you dig open world games:

  • Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition
  • Saints Row 2
  • Dead Island

Just some random games that I really enjoyed:

  • Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
  • Dead Rising 2 (all the Dead Rising games are fun, but only this one and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record are on PS3)
  • Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction and Ratchet & Clank: A Cra

If you dig shooters...

  • I play most of them on Xbox or PC so you may want to ask someone else. :)

The original Mass Effect is available on the PS3 as either a digital download or boxed in a set with the other two games.

Great series.

So your asking what games in the 8year period that is great?

There are simply too many to mention but a few is

RDR, Bully, Heavy Rain, The last of us, Beyond, Uncharted, Halo, Killzone, Gears of War, and a ton of other titles.

@Jacanuk: Exactly, I'm going to be gaming on PS3 for a while once I upgrade the HD. I can't even see the 'all time' ranking for games on this site anymore since the new layout, unless they removed it from the sorting options.

No plans for next gen until the 1st few waves of consoles pass the technical hiccups and games I'm actually interested in are released. As far as next gen launch games, I would pay no more than $20 to play.

@huggybear1020: No, the actual game Mass Effect 1 is available for PS3 now.
