inFAMOUS is the big seller for me. Unfortunately it was too much for my PS3 as it killed my system :(

Haha, well, I haven't played either one yet but I have Valkyria Chronicles on my gamefly queue so maybe sometime in the near future I will be able to add it.  I only add games I have personally played.  Thank you for the suggestions though :)

Valkyria Chronicles looks great, but heavenly sword is a busted ass game.

Well you don't say how it is "busted"... but its actually a very good game in my opinion. So we will have to agree to disagree on that one, especially for a launch window game - Heavenly Sword looks better than many current games do now... Awesome Mo' Cap, and some of the BEST voice acting this side of Uncharted 2.... I liked watching the cut-scenes. it also had some of the best sixaxis motion controller uses, (guiding the arrows or cannon balls was fun; and most other games haven't used it as well to this day), now i will agree i am not a sixaxis fan in the first place, but if you gotta use it, i actually prefered to guide an arrow with it than just shoot regular!
 
And for straight up gameplay; it was a dumbed down god of war - but that's not a bad thing, because i never got into god of war BECAUSE it was too combo heavy. PS3 was also lacking in that genre so if you like that type of game it really filled a void. Its kinda short, and there are no trophies, but the enemy design is awesome, and again the cinematic feel are great. i might say its a rental since its so short, but you can get it for $20 now, but you might want to point out whats "busted"? Haze was busted, this game wasn't....

Fat Princess invalidates this list.

I agree with most of your list, except Heavy Rain. 
 
Awful, awful story and surprisingly over-rated. I think in a year or so people will be complaining about this game, I can't imagine it getting too many repeat plays as it will suffer incredibly poor longevity. Worth a rent for most and then it'll get put to one side.

I'm inclined to agree with these two. I own both games, and have grown bored with Fat Princess (controls are not precise enough for my liking - especially as warrior, I find it impossible to actually do ANYTHING without losing at least one heart in the process, and the shield is basically useless. Also, the game is too repetitive, and - as Brad mentioned - you often get in a deadlock, which then gets boring quickly. 
 
And Heavy Rain has zero replay value. I bought it since I loved Fahrenheit, but if I had to choose today, I would definitely have rented it instead. I doubt I will be playing it again - all the other endings seem 'false' when you've already experienced the game once.

The Resistance 1 and Ratchet Tools of Destruction are demoes on PSN. Download them, but be warned. Resistance 1 is hard as a mofo so if you get it, play with a friend.
