Blazed

I'll add them, is NBA Jam availabe on disc? Or is it just downlable? If it's only on PSN then I'll add it to that section once I get that together.

Ok? Thanks for that information :P

Some thoughts:

I feel like if you have Star Ocean on there, then Ar Tonelico deserves a mention as well

Orange Box on consoles with no Valve support isn't worth recommending

Dead online communities with hackers? BC, BC2, MW, MW2, etc.

SSF IV AE over SSF IV

T6 is essentially an upscaled HD version of T5 on PS2

SFxT is considered broken by the community as it currently stands

Poorly optimized HD collections: Splinter Cell, PoP, ZoE

I would also recommend Sports Champion (not sure if already on), El Shaddai, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, Star Wars: The Forced Unleashed (a fantastic side story to the Star Wars saga without all the baggages)

I've got some money for new games and I found the digitto's page very attractive. Which of the games you recommend?
#61 Posted by biggest_loser (23902 posts) -
Does MGS4 have as many cutscenes as people say? Does it feel like it gets in the way of the game play? Also, what do you recommend for a new PS3 player: Red Dead or the Uncharted series first?!

It does have alot of cutscense but I dont see the problem of the cutscenes.Metal gear solid 4 was my first metal gear solid game I was fine with the cutscense they were entertaining and taught me about the story.You can skip them anyway. Both red dead and Uncharted are good games.Get red dead if you like open world games.Red dead lasts you way longer then the uncharted series so maybe get uncharted first finish the trilogy.Keep the 3rd one for multiplayer.Then get red dead later?
#63 Posted by NoirLamia777 (1970 posts) -

It does have a lot of cutscenes, but if you're a fan of previous MGS games then you will be too immersed in the story to care. It's a great game. If you're a new PS3 player I would go with the Uncharted games first. Red Dead is a great game though, but will take more time to complete.

#64 Posted by mirandela (78 posts) -

help me decide please:

Rayman HD, I Am Alive, Babel Rising or Expendables 2 ?

#65 Posted by Izak80 (249 posts) -

Is Darksiders 2 worth buying? I liked the first one quite alot but D2 seems to be a bit different.

I'd probably go with I Am Alive.

I haven't played it yet but I was just watching KevinV play it on the Wii U during their livestream and it seems solid. If you can get it as a deal (have been seeing it for $30 or less for Black Friday) I would go for it. I may just pick it up as well.

I went along and just bought it, the "Death Rides Pack" that is. Arguls Tomb from the videos ive seen doesnt appeal to me.

I've had Borderlands 1 for a long time now but when my ps3 got ylod and lost my progress I never got back to it. Before a couple of days I bought BL2 very cheap from amazon and I consider buying the season pass as well, but first I'm planning on finishing Borderlands 1 . My question is if it's worth it to purchase all of the BL1 DLC? (I have heard that all of it is spectacular, except mad moxxi that is crap)

#71 Posted by maAaxx (7 posts) -

#72 Posted by munkeypoo45 (3220 posts) -

What are some of the best games of last year?

#76 Posted by NoirLamia777 (1970 posts) -

What are some of the best games of last year?

Solid_Link22

I'd recommend these, from first to last:

  • Dark Souls
  • Batman Arkham City
  • Deus Ex Human Revolution
  • Uncharted 3
  • LA Noire (Sort of a hit or miss with this one, I enjoyed it though)
  • Dead Space 2

Out of the games I've played, haven't played Portal 2 or Skyrim yet and those seem to get a lot of praise.

Good choice, I actually just recently played through that and enjoyed every second. Have fun! :)

#80 Posted by Blabadon (23774 posts) -
Always go with Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Always.
#81 Posted by Pikminmaniac (8277 posts) -

I'm considering getting a game tomorrow for my PS3. Right now I'm looking at Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction or Resistance 3. The second one is based off of me wanting to give FPS games a second chance since I haven't really played them or had any interest in them since Golden Eye on N64. I'm attracted to the creative upgradable weapons. Any other suggestion is welcome.

the kind of games I absolutely loved

-Both Batman Arkham Games

-Devil May Cry 4

-Both Darksiders

-Rayman Origins

-both inFAMOUS games

-Super Street Fighter IV

Greatly disliked

-Uncharted 2

-Assassin's Creed II

#82 Posted by Blabadon (23774 posts) -
Ratchet and Clank. I loved ToD after a few rentals, got near the end, bought it, and lost my save file. I recently got CiT though and that's great too. I plan on playing ToD after it again. They have pretty weak platforming mechanics but their mix of everything else and their charm make them easy recommendations.
#83 Posted by IC3_C0LD_ZERO (297 posts) -
In February I'm gonna have an one-month break from College so I'm thinking of buying some games to play -Dishonored & XCOM (& Bioshock Infinite in March, since I'll have 60$ left) -Assassin's Creed Anthology (have owned 1 & 2, but a friend of mine borrowed the discs and never returned them, so I want to start over the series since I didn't play any of the entries after II )

why isnt uncharted a ps3 saga?

why isnt there a ps3 exclusive group of games?

otherwise...great thread

#85 Posted by almoalgam (81 posts) -

ratchet and clank....since the games you loved include infamous and rayman

They haven't released a saga of Uncharted yet, give it time probably soon. I dunno I guess I just grouped them with the other games. You thinkt here should be a whole seperate section for exclusives?

#88 Posted by web360top (37 posts) -

#89 Posted by Borrizee (379 posts) -
Thank you very much for this. There are a lot of games I did not know or did not know how good or bad they are.

Now that would be very useful quick search for PS3 owners who are looking for exclusive only. BTW, where is Way of The Samurai 4? Does it have to be scored higher than 7?

games like mass effect and assassins creed can also be played on pc and xbox 360. games like god of war, uncharted, heavy rain,infamous, ratchet and clank, sly cooper etc. are what set the ps3 apart.

#97 Posted by geeksqadup (5 posts) -
God of War 3 in my opinion best Ps game ever made. i got pics of the PS4 concepts and Xbox 720 at my blog, also there is a way you can apply to become a video game tester see geekzout.blogspot.com
