Hate to be 'that guy', but you really should check out the sticky here.

@NoirLamia777 has done a wonderful job creating a substantial list of great titles available on the PS3.

Journey, Demon's Souls and Ratchet & Clank: ACiT are very good.

Gaming is one time where it's a blast to be late to the party....loads of games to sift through, and no hype or lapse in releases.

A good list is variously posted above, yet some random titles worth considering:

  1. -Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (action game with future-apocalypse setting, lovable sidekick and lots of ground to cover)
  2. -Dead Space 1 (growing story, fear of your own footsteps, guts blastin, space-FPS)
  3. -Deus Ex: Human Revolution (...Augmented (Cyborg) nation in it's infancy, and you have a job to do)
  4. -Reckoning: Kingdoms of Amalur (the skyrim with color & action)
  5. -Skate 3 or Burnout: Paradise (depending on how you roll)
  6. -Shadow of the Colossus (hard to sum up, but worth figuring out...epic scale)

I cannot agree with this more. Best $50 you will ever spend.

You already own the best of the best with Arkham City so that's awesome. I'd also recomend

-the inFAMOUS series: These are the best Sony published games on the system in my opinion. It's a super hero open world game in which you choose to be either good or evil and the powers you gain are dependent on these choices

-Super Street Fighter 4: If you want a really good and deep competitive game in which you never stop learning new things, you can't do much better than the fighting genre and Super Street Fighter 4 is one of the best and most active right now.

-Rayman Origins and Legends: If you like platformers, these are easily the best on the console.
