-The Uncharted series

-inFamous 1 & 2

-LittleBigPlanet 2

-The Last of Us

-Heavy Rain

-Beyond: Two Souls

-Killzone 2/3

-The Resistance games I suppose

-God of War III + the collections if you haven't played the earlier ones

Those are all the ones that come to mind that I've played. I'm sure people would add Metal Gear Solid 4 and Journey, but I haven't played them.

God of War collection. I just completed it. 1, 2 and Chains of Olympus were kinda meh to me, but still good. Ghost of Sparta is great and 3 just completely blows all of them out of the water. 3 alone makes the God of War games worthwhile. 3 is epic beyond anything, ever. Just skip Ascension, it sucks.

Ni No Kuni, InFamous collection, Killzone Trilogy, Last Of Us, Valkyria Chronicles, Guacamelee, Little Big Planet 2, Resistance 3 campaign is good, Tales of Xillia,

What kind of genres do you like? I Can recommend the following:

  • The Uncharted series if you like action adventure games.
  • The Last of Us games if you like horror games that require thought.
  • Gran Turismo 5/6 if you like racing simulators.
  • InFamous series if you like open world games and messing around with powers.
  • God of War series if you like hack and slash (although I haven't played these games, I am only listing them based on what others have told me about them).
  • Motorstorm series if you like arcade racing games.
  • Resistance series if you like sc-fi first person shooters.
  • Little Big Planet series and ModNation Racers if you like being creative in games.

On a side note, many are recommending Metal Gear Solid 4 so I will let you know that it only has roughly 4 to 5 hours of gameplay, no one else will tell you this, and also, the multiplayer has been shut down.

The Last Of Us for sure! I would say GT6 as well. Not too sure what else is out there as I got a PS4 so I haven't focused on PS3 in a couple years.

Thanks for the feed back guys ! Judging by comments The Last of Us i a must and it does seem like my type of game. Also going to begin the God of war series and make my way up to the newest one same with Uncharted! I ament really into racers so will stay away from them. Yes was really looking in to MGS but have heard the servers are down so I think i will leave that one.

God of War Saga Collection, really good hack n slash games

Infamous Collection, enjoyable open world game

Okami HD, very colorful & looks fantastic Okami HD is one of the few ps3 games that runs at Native 1080p, it's long at about 40 to 60 hours & it's only 13$ on psn

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, they're a little tough more so SotC but you should get the hang of them

Demon's Souls,it's spiritual successor Dark Souls is better they're a little tough but once you know what you're doing they become much easier also very long

First get a PS+ subscription, you get a bunch of exclusives just for that (Uncharted 3, Lil Big Planet Karting, Shadow of Colossus HD, and others), or at least find a 30 day trial or something like that just to check out the games that may suit your tasted.

For disc-based games, all the above is pretty much covered.

But no one mentioned Flower and Trash Panic. I think these two are the best PSN games and you should get them.

Can't believe I'm the first to say Twisted Metal. You drive around in cars shooting each other. What's not to like?

Uncharted series, The Last of Us, Resistance, God of War all jump out to me right off the bat. If you're in to RPGs, Ni no Kuni was great, in my opinion.
