All 8 of these games are a must play :)
#4 Posted by MonkeyGekko (278 posts) -

Definitely Ratchet and Clank (Best game franchise evah!). I liked Heavenly Sword every much as well

#5 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

Jeez, all the games listed so far save for Little Big Planet involve a heavy dose of shooting mechanics. The same is true on the 360. WHAT HAS GAMING COME TO??? No wonder I'm not in the market for a PS3 
 
It's way too early for an "all time" list though. This shouldve been titled something more like "Best PS3 games SO FAR"

Well, you can always get Metal Gear Solid 4....twice!!! It's worth it.

#8 Edited by Drebin_893 (2891 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid 4 
Flower 
Uncharted 
Noby Noby Boy 
Infamous 
Valkyria Chronicles.

#9 Posted by Irishjohn (581 posts) -
Valkyria Chronicles is an acquired taste but in my opinion it's one of the best reasons to own a PS3.

MGS4

Exactly. MGS4 is the best game on the system in my opinion as well.

Lair

#14 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

Not sure if the best but my favorite of the few I've played is Heavenly Sword

All the games you listed are great, but my personal favorite PS3 game is Uncharted

My votes go to Uncharted, Valkyria Chronicles and Disgaea 3

Looks like a solid list. Those are pretty much the games that I want to get a PS3 for...except Heavenly Sword...I'll pass on that and just wait for God of War III.
 
Primarily, I just really want to play Valkyria Chronicles. Also, really looking forward to Heavy Rain. Those two games are probably the real reason I'll be getting a PS3 sooner rather than later.

Agreed - MGS 3 was amazing and shouldn't be missed. Save up 80 bucks, get a ps2 off craiglist, and play that game! Or maybe they'll eventually re-release it for PS3 - now that they're doing it with the God of War games.
#27 Posted by ninjakiller (3405 posts) -

Heavenly Sword was pretty good.

#28 Posted by EVO (3847 posts) -

Don't forget PSN:

  • Everyday Shooter
  • PixelJunk Eden, Monsters
  • Shatter
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD, Fury

the new MGS5 will have Raiden in it !! that ninja guy !! was he the guy in MGS2 ???
#30 Posted by Toxin066 (3250 posts) -

How bout best Ps3 games of the past couple of years? :p
 
I think the thread is really complete. R&C:Future Tools, inFamous, Uncharted, Killzone 2 (my picks)....I keep seeing the same games repeated, so I think we've sort of come to a consensus.

#31 Posted by Hailinel (23671 posts) -

It's a little early for a BEST PS3 GAMES OF ALL TIME!!!!!1 list, isn't it?

#32 Posted by InFamous91 (931 posts) -

LittleBigPlanet, Resistance, MGS4, Infamous, Killzone, and  future all time PS3 game will be, God Of War 3 when it comes out

#33 Posted by DukesT3 (1888 posts) -

Burnout Paradise is a great bargain or Midnight Club: LA. Also Valkryia Chronicles is a great game if you wanna try some action/rpg, just check out the quick look here to see what its about. What else... uh... cant go wrong with street fighter 4 also. Unless if you just want exclusive ps3 then the games you came up with are pretty much it, but those are my two cents. Enjoy man! 

#34 Posted by SUBL1ME (116 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid 4
 
PS3 has tons of great games but without a doubt MGS4 takes the cake. If only every game had a 1/10th of the high production quality this game has. Well minus MGO and the entire Konami online structure but hey nobody is perfect right?

#35 Posted by jvsexy (169 posts) -

THANKS ALL !!! I got a pretty good idea now... i ddnt even know about Valkyria Chronicles. I'll give it a go..cheers all !!

#36 Posted by ArchScabby (5809 posts) -

Uncharted.
 
Anybody who doesn't agree is a dumbass.

#37 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -

I think it's Uncharted. It nails every element. That or flower.

Shooting games have always been prominent. Are you making it sound like shooting games are a new thing? I agree with what you're trying to get at, there's perhaps a lack of diversity these days - but come on, there's plenty of flower, Eye Pet, Noby Noby Boy, LBP, Valkyria Chronicles and Wipeout HD to go around.

Flower! I completely forgot about that game :O 
It's so short, and yet worth absolutely every cent. 
 
+ What everyone else said above me. Aside from Lair. For the love of god don't buy Lair.

How could I forget?!? Pacific Rift is one of the best racing games on the PS3.

#44 Posted by n8 (264 posts) -

The only games I play on my ps3 are Persona 4 (I have BC PS3 (MGS4 bundle)) and Street Fighter 4...  
 
I have many of the others that have been mentioned in this thread.  But those 2 are still consistent winz0r for me.

#45 Posted by PenguinDust (12436 posts) -

Ha-ha, yeah I'm going to say P3 FES or P4 just to be a dick about it, because I think it's still too early to list a "greatest of all time" yet, too.  Favorite games?  Sure.  Recommended titles?  Absolutely.  Greatest Ever?  Not yet.

Valkyria Chronicles also features shooting as a heavy gameplay mechanic... So almost every worthwhile retail game is a shooter...
 
And no, shooting has not "always" been prominent. You'll find the odd Contra, Gradius, or Metal Slug back in the SNES/Genesis/PS1 days, and even in the N64 days you had little more than Perfect Dark and Goldeneye, but not a situation where almost every worthwhile game is a shooter. That is much more recent (see last gen)

I just want to say hear, hear.  My PSN collection is rather incomplete, actually, but I'm looking forward to changing that.
