Just got my PS3 - Recommend me some games

Posted by Shinryu (245 posts) -

Got God of War 3 with it and am looking to add to my collection, please recommend any titles that you think are must haves. I personally enjoy role playing games and fighting games the most and have had my eye on Demon's Souls.

@Hamz: this is a good list.
 
Other games:

Some Pixeljunk games (monsters, shooters)

YES!, That looks awesome lol.

Thanks for the recommendations so far guys, and thank you for the long list Hamz. Though I probably should have stated that im looking for Exclusive titles only. As i'll probably pick up multi-platform titles for the 360 since a lot of my friends are on it.

The best PS3 game is MGS4, then probably Uncharted 2.

#12 Posted by WillyLo (302 posts) -

Folklore
Little Big Planet
White Knight Chronicles - Wasn't rated well but I enjoyed it :S.
  
3D Dot Heroes coming out looks pretty wicked.

It's a new 250gb Slim Version so no backwards compatibility. As said before I enjoy RPG and Fighting games (Street Fighter etc) the most, as for naming some I like :


RRG:

Final Fantasy Series

Chrono Trigger

Tales Series

Suikoden Series


Fighting Games :

Street Figher Series (especially 3)

Guilty Gear Series

Soul Edge

Marvel v Capcom

Gotta get Metal Gear, if you haven't played 1-3 go play them it's worth it.

#16 Posted by lucas_kelly (769 posts) -

Definitely Uncharted 2.

LittleBigPlanet

#18 Posted by Xanth93 (485 posts) -

Uncharted 2
LittleBigPlanet
God of War III
Demon's Souls
Final Fantasy XIII
Metal Gear Solid 4
 
I can't think of any others off the top of my head.

It's always good to hate yourself a little...
 
Demon's Souls.

Heavy Rain 
Valkyria Chronicles 
Metal Gear Solid 4 
White Knight Chronicles

Buying Valkyria Chronicles and Demon's Souls is more important than kidney dialysis.

#22 Posted by VisariLoyalist (2991 posts) -

let me suggest some non ps3 exclusives for you as well
fallout 3
civilization revolution
burnout paradise
(is an exclusive) R&CACIT

Uncharted 2 has got to be close to the top of your shopping list. Also Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time is definitely worth a look at

#24 Posted by Jhriad (115 posts) -

As far as your RPGs go...
 
Heavy Rain
Demon's Souls
Valkyria Chronicles
Folklore
Dragon Age: Origins              (fantastic game if you enjoy games similar to Baldur's Gate.   Get the PC version if you can otherwise PS3 will be fine)
Final Fantasy Tactics                 (if you haven't played it before.  available on PSN)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion               (If you didn't/can't play it on PC.  PS3 version is better than the 360 version)
Disgaea 3*     *only if you have played the series before and are really into it.  Disgaea 2 was better IMO and would probably be a better starting point if you're interested in 100+ hours of game
 
I'm not much of a fighting game player so I can't really suggest anything along those lines other than SF4.

Heavy Rain   
inFamous
Killzone 2 
Metal Gear Solid 4   
Ratchet & Clank Future: Crack in Time. 
Uncharted 2       

These are some pretty great games, some of which I'm still working on getting :D
