Getting a PS3, what to buy?

I already have a few games on my list (Metal Gear Solid 4 is absolute #1 on that list, I refuse to buy any PS3 games before I buy that), but I would like to know what some of your reccomended games are. 
 Games I've got in mind: 

  • Motorstorm (1 and 2)
  • Resistance (1 and 2)
  • Uncharted (1 and 2)
 
What else should I absolutely buy for my PS3? The only games I don't like are RPGs, I can stomach one if it's really great though.

Infamous,  It's a super awesome open world game. Like crackdown. Also it has at least two good play throughs  in it.
Killzone 2 , 
Little Big Planet (if you like creating and trying out community stuff)

Everything!

Ninja Gaiden Sigma if you want to smash your controller. that game is HARD. 
Street Fighter IV is a fantastic fighter, but can make you rage. 
if there's an absolute own, it's going to have to be Street Fighter IV and GTA IV for me.

Rachet and Clank games I just started the first one and they are a ton of fun.

Best bet is to return it immediately.

Yeah, I'm your guardian angel
 
You should really look into this bundle "
Don't even get me started on that bundle, it's too awesome, I can't find it on eBay for a reasonable price, though.

Why do you keep insisting on being such a fanboy?

By the time I get a PS3, Sony's 10 year life cycle will be over. Life sucks, nothing but a dream killer.

Little Big Planet

Posted by ShaneDev

I think you should look at Little Big Planet closely and see if its really for you.It can be sort of frustrating.

I wouldn't bother with the first motorstorm if i was you. Other than MGS, you should pick up...
 
Infamous
Valkyria Chronicles
Uncharted 1 and 2
Motorstorm: Pacific Rift 
Wipeout (Only available on PSN unless you live in Europe)
GTA 4
Ratchet and Clank (Whole series is good but just pick up the latest one if you're not sure)
Littlebigplanet  

And if you don't own them already, maybe some other multi platform games like...
 
Borderlands
MW2
Batman: AA
Both Assasins Creed games
Prince of Persia
Bioshock 
 
but you could already have those on another system for all i know.

Going by exclusives, inFAMOUS and Demon's Souls most definatley. 2 of the years best and 2 of the ps3s too infact.
Posted by DanceDanceKennypants

I dunno if you played God of War I & II, if not get the GOW Collection.
 
A must own.

I would not bother getting  Motorstorm 1 as 2 is the same, just better.   These are the games I would recommend:

  • Demon's Souls (action rpg - v. addictive)
  • Uncharted 1+2
  • inFamous (~£15 new)
  • Valkyria Chronicles
  • Ratchet and Clank series (get tools of destruction on the cheap first if your not sure)
  • Trine
  • Little Big Planet (can get it for <£10)

Multiplat options
  • Dirt 2
  • Prince of Persia (Can get it for £10 new.  Not very hard but great story)
  • Batman AA
  • Borderlands
  • MW2
  • Saints Row 2 (ludicrously fun ~£10)
  • Battlefield Bad Company (~£13)

Demon's Souls - or can you not stomach game of the year?
Posted by SJSchmidt93

I'd say rent U1 and buy U2.  I haven't played it on the PS3 (I hear it's bad) but you could try The Orange Box, too. If you don't have a PC, that is.

I agree with most of these. I'd just look at this list.

This, too.

@SJSchmidt93:  I agree that renting it is probably the better option (and maybe play on an easier difficulty) as the combat can be a bit frustrating (enemies soak up bullets).  I think it is worth playing though as the characters/dialogue in the game are great and adds to the U2 experience.

BATMAN! 
maybe modern warfare 2 if you have friends on ps3

Posted by Seppli

If you like slower paced tactical JRPGs - Valkyria Chronicles is a must.
 
Almost all of the PS3 exclusives are actually worth the time and dime spent on them.
 
Just play them all.

Try out the LittleBigPlanet demo before you buy. I thought I'd really enjoy it, and it turned out to be only a so-so experience. That's just me, but regardless, try the demo first.

MGS4

first of all the guy that said borderlands is a mess is a dip and he doesn't know what he's talking about.. that game is ridiculous fun. 
 
2nd of all, i'd get: 
Batman AA 
Borderlands (duh) 
MW2 
Killzone 2 is a good ps3 exl. 
Battlefield Bad Company 
Trine (psn)  
Infamous  
but i'd say the absolute first game you need to buy is Uncharted 2 
 
 
and also, the guy who said return it is also a dip, as for he has no clue what he's talking about, and probably doesn't own and never has owned a ps3. if he did, he would know there awesomness. i own 360 and ps3 and they're equally awesome.

definitely Uncharted 1 & 2. Besides that I guess I would recommend inFAMOUS. You already said the only PS3 exclusive games I have.
