Poll: If someone was to buy an PS3 today what 10 games would you suggest they play? (23 votes)

Look at all of these top tier AAAE+ rated exclusives the PS3 truely delivered the best experience 43%
GOTY exclusives...GOTY exclusives EVERYWEHRE!! 26%
If it isn't Halo Forza or Gears I don't play it. TCHBO!!! 4%
After thinking about it, PS3 has no games. TCHBO!!! 26%

Reason why I ask is because all generation long people have debated about the best games between the PS3 and xbox360. But now that the new generation is upon us I want to know what games sony fans feel made it so great to them.

Seeing has how the same people are now talking about line ups of the new systems it will be cool to see what the top games for them were so we will have an idea of how to gauge their hype for and praise for games with the new generation of consoles.

TSHBO, THHBO, TLHBO :P

Most of the games would be multiplat.

... in fact the only worthwhile PS3 exclusives are Uncharted 2 and TLOU. The rest are bettered by many multiplats.

#2 Edited by Pikminmaniac (8798 posts) -

The best games on the PS3 are overwhelmingly multiplats IMHO. If I owned a 360 instead of a PS3 it wouldn't have made that much of a difference in the end.

-Batman Arkham City

-Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition 2012

-Rayman Legends

-inFAMOUS 1 and 2

-Darksiders

-Dark Souls

-Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time

-Assassin's Creed Black Flag

-Red Dead Redemption

-Sonic Generations

lol, should have posted your 360 list in the other thread since it was dedicated to xbox fans like yourself. You seem to have the opinion PS3 only has 2 worthwhile exclusives, it should be interesting to see what 360 games you feel are worthwhile in comparison.

Nope, just like the 360 thread you can list any game you thought were the top tier amazing games worth owning the system for or suggest someone get if they bought the system today.

There is no preset requirement for the games you feel did this just your opinion.

Both systems have great exclusives (PS3 has better imo because of how good 2013 has been for it) but very few people on system wars seem to have actual experience with both because they only list halo/gears/forza for the 360 which is sad because some of the best games of last gen were other exclusives on the 360

#11 Posted by Floppy_Jim (25609 posts) -

Demon's/Dark Souls

Uncharted series

God of War III

Valkyria Chronicles

MGS4

.

GTA 5

XCOM: Enemy Unknown/Within

5 exclusives + 5 multiplats just seems easier, will do same for the other thread.

This threads actually helpful... I'm thinking of purchasing a PS4 soon.

#18 Edited by Boddicker (2591 posts) -

90% of the best games are multiplats, so nothing unfortunately.

Buy a 360 or PS3. It doesn't matter at this point.

How would this thread help? These are PS3 games. Unless you are going by franchise, perhaps?

I think you have problems with your sight (no racism) as people in that thread excluded those games intentionally just to prove how good of a library the 360 has.

#23 Edited by judaspete (392 posts) -

Mirrors Edge!!!!!

Vanquish!!!!

Valkyria Chronicles

Split Second

Bayonetta (the 360 version has less slowdown, but still great on PS3)

King of Fighters 13 (NOT 12!)

Blazblue: Continuum Shift (Get this if it's cheap, or wait for Protophantasma)

Journey

Saints Row the Third

Twisted Metal

Maybe for whenever Gaikai launches. Doubt the whole library would be available, but chances are all the top shelf 1st party games will be at least.

Ratchet and clank into the nexus

They weren't though. I believe that the PS3 had the better exclusives however the 360 wasn't far behind. I'm blessed to have played both consoles at their full potential without missing out on the best games of last gen due to corporate loyalty.

Journey was good.

I enjoyed the inFamous series alot, especially inFamous 2.

Heavy Rain was great

Killzone 2 and 3 were fun

I'm sure Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls are worth a play (even tho I haven't played them)

I spent a year playing MAG

Other than that, basically multiplats.

I'm playing Ass Creed 3 on PS3 right now, and I'll be playing AC4 on it also (the games are rented, I'm a gamefly subscriber)

#34 Posted by KarateeeChop (4590 posts) -

the only ps3 exclusive i found worthwhile was flower. sadly, for the last 3 years the only times my ps3 got powered on was for multiplats and bluray movies.

Can't be bothered doing 10.

#37 Posted by lamprey263 (23301 posts) -

that depends entirely on whether the person just wants to play PS3 exclusive games or if they've not played anything in the gen at all, because if it's the ladder then it's going to be entirely multiplats

No particular order.

I condensed sequels for the most part because the list was too long. I didn't insert some fine HD collections (not really exclusive), but they are out there including recent hit Kingdom Hearts HD remix. Some of these I have more fun in groups with. I placed more than 10 just in case someone didn't like a few. I did the same in the recent 360 thread.

Dumbass alert. This generations best game is a PS3 exclusive and its not even the two you mentioned (although they are both in the top 5 with SMG2 and GTAV)

its Metal Gear Solid 4.

To answer TCs question:

Metal Gear Solid 4

Uncharted 1,2 and 3

The Last of Us

Heavy Rain

God of War 3

are the first games I'd buy.

It's pretty standard. MP was fairly decent in 2... Didn't enjoy 3 as much.
