Hello everyone.

I just bought a PS3. The only game I own so far is Resistance.

I was wondering what your thoughts are concerning the available multiplayer games for the system.

For the guys: what is your favorite multiplayer game? I am looking for a game with replay value and a high fun factor.

For the ladies: same question. Are there any multiplayer PS3 games that appeal to you so far?

Is there a multiplayer game that appeals to both?

Thanks for your thoughts!

I am a lady and I have two games so far (just got my PS3 for mother's day). I love the multiplayer for GTA 4. The only other game that I have is Heavenly Sword and there is not a mulitplayer for that game. But I would love to get more games to play online. its so much fun!

For FPS multiplayer, you cannot go wrong with Killzone 2. A lot of people still seem to be playing Call of Duty 4 as well, though, which was also a phenomenal online experience.I imagine that community will die down in November when the new one comes out. Unreal Tournament III is pretty decent -- fast action, great maps -- but if you got only one of the games I just listed, it's got to be KZ2... and that game's community is going to be active for a while.

LittleBigPlanet has good online features -- ones that appeal to all genders, ages, etc. so that might be a consideration for you. They support the game with a lot of DLC (too much DLC, really), they have a ton of contests (via PS Blog)... you can make your own levels if you want to put the time into it, but the single player game is good enough for the price of admission. You see a lot of women playing that game as well, if that helps your question. My gf is even considering making a PSN account just to have her own Sackboy, and she hasn't really been gung-ho about online interaction... which, after experiencing PS Home, I guess I can see why, being that she's a woman and all.

Get Killzone 2. The best exclusive online multiplayer FPS for the PS3 imo

Warhawk is fun as hell and trying to rank up will keep you busy for a while. Socom is also cool, so is Bad Company, those are all fun. Warhawk is my favorite though.

I'm surprised it took 9 posts for someone to say


It's such an incredible multiplayer game that almost ANYONE can play and have fun with and considering the massive amount of online levels you could never get bored.

When your non video game playing GF asks if she can play LBP, or you can invite another couple over and play together, you know you found a great multiplayer game.

CoD4. Addictive, good guns, good maps, good controls. Only bad thing is the servers suck. KZ2 i think is 2nd i just can't ever get use to the controls..

Killzone 2 Resistance: Fall of Man Resistance 2 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty: World at War Warhawk Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots(Well its Metal Gear Online.) That should definitely keel your multiplayer cravings over.

little big planet everyone always wants to play that when ever they come over and theres always new content

I'm a lady as well. I found that playing little big planet is really fun because you can play up to 4 people in it. Resident evil 5 has really good co-op play. Motorstorm is fun to play with others as well as soul calibur and other fighting games.

Call of duty 4/5 will let you spend HOURS online playing with others.

id wait a bit right now since alot of new games are comming out that promise awsome MP. DiRT2 is comming out sep 8th or something like that, demo MP is awsome lol Uncharted 2 is also going to have awsome MP since you cant get over a PS3 mp thread without someone mentioning how it will demolish evreything else Borderlands is gonna be a Fallout 3 like FPS but more FPS then RPG, it currently has 17 million (yes i said seventeen million guns) that are randomly generated along with monsters ala diablo and it will have 4 player COOP Ofcourse you have the spectaculary original CoD6 comming out witch is set to revolutionise the online gaming world... ok back to the real world, it will have 50 cent voice acting for MP and dual wielding. Thats what i herd that is gonna be new with it... Those are some of the more promising MP games comming out. Also theres a Little Big Planet GOTY edition with all the DLC packs comming out in NA only soon...

Resistance 2 is my favorite. Many love Warhawk, but I hated it. Killzone 2 and Call of Duty games are generally the standards for online, and probably what most people in this thread have said and will say.

Best local multiplayer game - Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-powered Battlecars

That game gets a constant 4 player thrashing at our house much to the annoyance of my house mates who need to sleep sometimes... :)

Yeah, but it's GREAT to see people updating my original thread continually as new games come out.

I've been inspired to try games I would never have tried thanks to all your comments. Thanks!

My favorite online game so far has been Resistance 2. The online co-op is really cool.

Multiplayer games I'm waiting eagerly for this year: Little Big Planet GOTY edition, and Uncharted 2.

Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 is great fun, but online is hit or miss. T hunt is amazing, but lots of times there will be barely anyone on while other times the online population seems ot have boomed.

Resistance 2 is great if you enjoyed the first, 8 player co-op and 60 player skirmish is pretty amazing.

Killzone 2 I highly suggest, no co-op or split screen, but plenty of great team based online with plenty of ranking up.

I also enjoy GTA online, but freemode is really the only thing most people ever play outside of the easy 4 player co-op modes.

SOCOM is more for fans of past SOCOM games, its pretty difficult and very team oriented but you might enjoy it if you get in a good clan.

Call of Duty 4 and World at War are also enjoyable, World at War in particular has great 4 player zombies (although you would have to pay $30 extra for all the good maps).

I've been playing a lot of Killzone 2 & Uncharted 2 online. Both have really fun multiplayer. Borderlands has the best co-op multiplayer I've seen. I sunk endless hours into it.
