i have a gaming capable PC, and a Xbox 360. but im getting a PS3 for my birthday next week. my question is, if there is one game in particular that i should play first? i bought MGS4 and Killzone 2. any other suggestions?
first PS3 game i should play
" yup, i know that Uncharted 2 is amazing, but should i play Uncharted 1 before the second game? "No, just read up on the story, thats all you need. Your better off that way. Or at least, all you need to know is who is Sully, Drake and Elena, thats it. Get to it.
Having just gotten a PS3 at the new year I would say Uncharted 2. You can get 1 if you like, but it is not a necessary play before 2 and it has a number of gameplay shortcomings that can make it a... pain.
U2 (hey, that would make a great band name!) is far and away the best exclusive on the system, but LittleBigPlanet (despite the flakiness of the running/jumping controls [which you would think would be a deal breaker in a platforming game]) is a great deal for the money because of all the content the community has created for it.
i have a ps3 that i just got, and the first game that i got that I have enjoyed quite a bit is Valkyria Chronicles... Its kind of a mash up of rts and some first person stuff, but i've been really into that, SFIV, and my roommates copy of FFIX for the PS1. Here is the quicklook of Valkyria Chronicles, and it's pretty old so you can find it for 20 new, or less if you look around...

Get Rogue warrior. You'll break your PS3 after playing it and again be a PC player.
GaLaXypwn3r - i was in teh same boat as you a few months ago. i bought- LBP, MGS4, and uncharted2. i cant get into lbp, same for mgs4. i really liked uncharted 2, however i didnt find it to be this life altering experience everyone is touting. the story is cool, however nothing that hasnt already been done. the character acting/voice actors and really good though. the visuals and equally impressive. controls are great, and the camera work in certain spots is incredible.
some other games you might like to try, wipeout hd plus expansion pack. any of the pixeljunk games except racer.
I just bought a PS3 as well (my first current-gen console, apart from a pretty cockrocking PC). I'm pretty much into more laidback sorts of games/ games that don't have a high level of difficulty. Could anyone recommend a game or two for this carebear? Gracias if anyone does!
Thanks, dudes! I'm probably about to purchase Uncharted 1 and Folklore... checking out PSN for good laidback games that aren;t sucky.... it's so fun to feel like a noob again.
Forgot to mention: my PSN is Moonwick, if anyone wants to add me (not really into racism or homophobia or any of that crap, so don't bother if you are)
" so not Killzone 2? because im not the biggest fan of Modern Warfare 2 and its slightly twtchy gameplay, imo "There are a lot of games beside Killzone 2 that are better (not saying Killzone 2 is bad).
Uncharted 2 (get Uncharted 1 if possible, if not just read up the story).
then I'd probably say Killzone 2 or Rachet and Clank
Surprised how few people mention Motor Storm Pacific Rift, easily one of the best racing games ever made and best exclusives on ps3.
Aside from that I'd say go with peoples usual picks, Uncharted 1 and 2, Ratchet and Clank ToD and CiT, MGS4 and of course God of War 3 next month.
