PS3 games i want by the end of 2010

I chose inFamous as the gift with the PS3 (game sucks so hard.. wish i didnt), and i bought Red Dead Redemption as my very first console-game purchase 
 
now, im looking at these :  (P.S., i keep my shooters (FPS) for my PC,  also most of the adventure/horror games.. In other words, im only interested in a handful of great PS3 games, and not everything)
 

PS3 Wishlist

1. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

I really need not to say anything. Game is too critically acclaimed and looked pretty fucking fun from all the videos. Buying it by the end of July

2. Heavy Rain

Indigo Prophecy felt kinda... retarded. The characters were too robotic and the pacing drove me crazy. i hope Heavy Rain isnt too similar Anyway, now that im gonna be having RDR, inFamous and UC2 in my library, i need to take it easy on the shooting and killing, and enjoy some of the satisfying charm that is one of the reasons i bought a PS3 instead of a X360. This game looks quite promising and interesting, i hope i enjoy the ride. Buying it in August, methinks

3. God of War III

I played the first few levels of both GoW and GoW2, and though it was very fun and epic, it felt kinda empty and pointless. But fuck that. with GoW3's budget and graphics, and the fact that this time it wont be the playstation of my cousins (gow 1 & 2), im sure the action will be too entertaining. Buying it by the end of the Year.

4. Afrika

My dad is a sucker for some wild life. he shoots the National Geographic channel into his arm like it was heroin.. So one of the reasons i bought a PS3, was to play this game on the HD TV in the living room and show him this game. im sure he'll LOVE it. Buying it by the end of the year.

5. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time

Nothing better than some crazy and innovative fun to go along with the action titles, amirite ? Buying it by the end of the year.

I'm with you on Afrika, that's my next gaming purchase.

How dare you defy the awesomness that is inFAMOUS!! D=< 
 
Good list. Can't go wrong with most of those games.

Posted by Video_Game_King

Wait, what about all the strategy RPGs for it?

That's not how you do a text-penis.

Posted by MysteriousBob

If I owned a PS3, I'd probably get those. Apart from Ratchet and Clank, I hate 3D platformers.

It's not how you do one, maybe.
Posted by RecSpec

Looking at your wish list, I highly suggest you rent Heavy Rain.
 
If you only have Infamous and Red Dead, there are way better purchases than Heavy Rain.
You should play it though, no doubt. Just...as I said, you would get more value for your money with something else.

No, not really; my penis doesn't look like that.

you didnt like infamous? what? 
 
also uncharted 1. dont spoil it by playing 2 first. 1 is great and plus you just wont get some things by not playing 1..

now, i`m the biggest ratchet and clank fan out there, but when I finished the game I had to be honest to myself, but honestly I feel the ratchet and clank a crack in time was a failure, the story was good, and the gun`s were good too, but it felt like insomniac gave up on the series, i`m not gonna go on a huge bitch fit on this game ( and I really could ) but i`ll just let you know now, as a ratchet and clank game it`s horrible, but as a game in general it`s not that bad, but it might feel a little repetitive

I only have 3 games for my PS3, but I REALLY want Demon's Souls.

i wont rant, i'll just be brief : Theres nothing i wanted more than to enjoy inFamous, but the game feels so bad to me.  The people on the streets are so fucking weird and twitchy, the way you run and climb is, maybe interesting and different, but still feels unsatisfying, and above all :  All you're fighting is the same species. just this one race of "reapers", who have different types.. that is NOT cool. what if i dont like the way the Reapers operate? do i have to be stuck fighting them and not enjoy fighting other sorts of enemies? yes, i do. 
On the whole, the game really feels unpolished and fucking disappointing... How i wish i could say its better than Prototype, but no it isnt. i tried to give it more time but it wont grow on me.

As much as i long to enjoy such deep games, i just dont... RPGs bore me out :(

I need confirmation on this, you guys.  I kinda thought that UC to UC2 was like Red Dead Revolver to Red Dead Redemption.. is UC worth the cash ?

You only fight Reapers on the first of Empire City's three islands.

I'll probably pick up Demon's Souls, FFXIII, and White Knight Chronicles, but I pretty much have what I want from the console already. 

Posted by lead_farmer

How about Valkyria Chronicles?  3D Dot Game Heroes? Eh?

Yo, what is your PSN ID?

Of those I've only played Heavy Rain. And it was excellent with the only drawback being the length. If you can find it cheap online, try to order it. Don't buy used if you possibly can. The developers deserve to get paid for every copy (albeit $60 might be a little high for the time spent playing).

Beat me too it. Prototype only has the infected and the military. Which could be defined as, do you want long unnecessary battles, or do you want to be chased to the end of the earth?

I have seen a new and a used copy of Afrika but I'm not going to pay $70 for a game that was reviewed by only a few people and those few people called it "awful". 
 
I'd like to finally play Yakuza 3. I did own it but then decided that I had no time for it and brought it back unopened to use in order for me to buy a Wii. 
 
Otherwise, I'm all caught up on PS3 releases.

it has same characters and of course the interaction between them. you could easily beat it in a rental (first play through on normal finding a few treasures took me 12 hours and thats all taking in the envirment its not to hard about 2-3 spots will give you trouble. also the update has trophys if you care for those) its still a great game to go through i just went into it a few weeks ago and man it still feels great!

Great List, that's all i'd really agree on getting.

Posted by UltraMagnus

Uncharted 2 and God of War 3 are must have games.  Especially Uncharted 2.  That game is SICK.  Oh, and get MGS4.

lolwut? You don't deserve a PS3.
 
Haha jk anyway good list but I don't know about Afrika, but I guess if your dad's into then it's ok. Besides that, great list. But...dude. inFamous is so good!
