Almost done, just have to get a PSN list together and upcoming games. Maybe I'll add an accessories section as well. Any suggestions anyone?

Depends, what's your goal for creating a list like this? Is it to provide a buyer's guide, or just list every good game? I'm seeing things that could be on there but not if you're going for one big to-buy list, or things that are more niche and wouldn't be recommendeded for all (Cathrine, for one), to scarcity of titles (RB3, Tomb Raider Trilogy).

Basically just a list showcasing what "decent" games the PS3 has to offer, I felt like it had to encompass both people who are brand new to the PS3, whether or not they have another console, and people who are just looking for more games without having to create their own threads. I've never played Catherine, I will eventually, and I know it's not a game for everybody. I don't think I should limit the games though to a specific crowd.

I'll probably make a section at the beginning of each genre that outlines the "Must Haves" of that genre. Then continue after that with lesser games and niche games that "may interest you if you enjoyed..."

Okay, I could probably put that in the Bad section of the game. What games in specific no longer have an online presence that you would address?

I know that you are basing this of Gamespot's reviews and scores but don't you think that the recommendations of Mass Effect 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 are misleading?

I could, I have played both games, MGS4 a very long time ago though. Although a lot of people would agree with these reviews.

I know a lot of people will agree with the reviews but I also know that anyone with half a brain would know that Metal Gear Solid 4 does NOT have a 'a brilliant mixture of storytelling and gameplay', in fact it's the worst mixture of storytelling and gameplay ever in a game. And using the words shooting and level design in the good section for Mass Effect 2 is just wrong.

Then you don't have to recommend it. NoirLama took that from the GameSpot review. This thread is also for people who want to know what to buy, not just those who want to look at GameSpot's reviews condensed in one place.
