I'm just curous, what was your very first PS3 game and was it a hit or a miss in your opinion.

My PS3 is still relatively new (had it since mid August 2010) and the very first game I got for it was Batman Arkham Asylum. Boy was I pleased how that turned out. I still consider that game the best action adventure this gen. It does combat, stealth, and exploration all at top tier quality. It also offers a set of challenges to master as well as secrets and clues tosearch for in an open world environmentso it basically nails everything I want in a game.

My first PS3 exclusive was inFAMOUS and I was also extremely pleased with that game. It still stands as my favourite new IP this gen. The thing that shines sowell in this game is the amazing combat.The powers may mostly mimick tropes of the shootergenre such as grenades and rocket launchers, but the diference here is that all of these powers are readily available at your fingertips. You are able to use any ability you want as you seefit for the situation. The open world also plays a good role in the combat as it allows for a strategic aproach to the battle. I've found that the way you aproach a group of enemies to be very important and the open world allows you to aproach ina vast number of ways. When I got this game I played only this game for months every time a sat down to enjoy my favourite pass time. I didn't stop until I had my platinum.

What about you guys?

First game I got was Assassins Creed with my launch 40GB. Was a good game but far too short/easy. Still need to play Batman, looks good!

Don't even remember, I know some of the first games I got were Bioshock, Bionic Commando, Battlefield: Bad Company, and Dead Space. They were all good in my book. I've really not played too many really *BAD* PS3 games - or if I they were "bad" I already knew about them so had low expectations going in.

First game was Resistance. I had a launch 60gb console, and that seemed liked the only solid game at the time. I didn't really enjoy it that much, but I guess it was an alright FPS.

I got my PS3 April of 2010 and my first game was God Of War 3. It was a definite hit. I was blown away by the scale. The opening of the game was jaw dropping. I had never seen a game with the scale of that. Not to mention how good the graphics and framerate were while all this stuff was going on on the screen at once. While I did find the combat mechanics & story a bit lacking, the setpieces, presentation, boss battles, scale, graphics & cutscenes were outstanding. The game defines what the PS3 is capable of and that makes it a great first game for the platform.

Genji: Days of the Blade and Full Auto 2. They were the only 2 games which looked cool at the release date, needless to say they were a big mess.

UC2 was the first game to go into my ps3, then it's a toss up between KZ2, Dead Space, and AC2 since I got them all at the same time.

Coming off the Ratchet games on my PS2. I got R&CF:TOD with my 40gb PS3 in July 2008.

It was a good game yes but for whatever reason, what I loved so much about the PS2 games just wasn't there anymore. I liked the game, just not as much as I wanted to. Good first game though (first time seeing PS3 graphics in HD *drools* lol)

The really sad thing tho is that after Tools, my love for the series began to die out. I got QFB and ACiT still tho.

QFB has been off my HDD for almost 2 years now cuz there just no replay value or any incentive to want to play it anymore. ACiT was actually pretty fun but upon getting Platinum, I just don't want to play it anymore. The game just lacks something special that the PS2 games had. The humor just sounds forced now. All in all I guess the light just died out........EULOGY OVER!!!!!LOL

When I bought the PS3 two years ago I got it with Tekken 6 and Modern Warfare 2. Tekken 6 was a miss for me because of laggy online play, long load times and an extremely hard boss. Modern Warfare 2 was a hit (for the time being), it kept me entertained for a pretty long time, until my friend bought me Bad Company 2.

I think my first PS3 game I played would be Black ops! I loved it, then sold it, cause i hated it, then rebought it off of peer pressure and the fact that Its really the only FUN online game in which I can find a game fast, and its easy.

I got my PS3 in August 2007 and the 2 games that came with it were Motorstorm and Resistance: Fall of Man. Both were great games, and Motorstorm still remains one of the most visually stunning games on the PS3.
