Hey guys, I need some advice.

My PS3 is fairly new, since I bought it almost 2 years ago, and due to office hours, I could not play many games on it last year.

What should I play on my PS3 before moving on to PS4? (I will probably purchase the new console at launch.)

Both new & old game recommendations are dearly appreciated, in advance.

Thanks. Nice recommendations!

I've finished God of War III, and it was such a great game! Some of the puzzles were a bit silly, though. For example; that Guitar Hero puzzle.

And, I've just purchased Heavy Rain. I'm originally a PC-adventure-gamer, so I think I'm going to love it. = )

Is there anything in particular you are looking for?

Not really. I just don't want to miss "a must have" game on PS3.

@x-2tha-z: I played Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, but got bored. I guess, not my cup of tea.

@dipdish: why are you gonna buy a new console when you don't even have time for this one?

The Three main titles from the PS3 era I would recommend is The Last of US, Uncharted 2 and Infamous 1. There are others but these three games were Playstation exclusives and were the best of the generation.

Dues Ex: Human Revolution, Ni No Kuni, God of War collections, Infamous collections, Guacamelee, Rage Anarchy Edition, Far Cry 3, FC3 Blood Dragon, Last of Us, Binary Domain, Singularity, Mass Effect Trilogy, Darksiders 1 and 2. There are so many more.

@punisher1: I did not have time last year, just like I wrote. Which means now, I do.

Plus, it's not so smart to ask why should someone buy a console when his/her free time is limited. Some people bought PS3 solely to play FIFA or PES games at their free time.

@dalger21: Thank you.

I bought a physical copy of Infamous, and a digital copy of Infamous: Festival of Blood for my husband. He's an electrician, and he likes controlling electricity in the game. = ) I'll play them, too.

I haven't read the whole thread, but don't miss the "Uncharted"-games, or for that matter "Singularity".

@dipdish: to me that is a waste of time.And money. It's like being afraid to let go. Life moves forward and if gaming is not in it anymore then let go.
