Opinions on the PS3


Well recently I bought the new PS3 Slim and with it what I believe the best 3 exclusives for the console MGS4,LittleBig Planet and Uncharted. This is what I think of each:  

MGS4: I am at the begining of Act 4 and I think the game is pretty good.It is my first Metal Gear but I downloaded the database and learned about the story and everything. One thing that I find really good about the game is it's versatility in the way that you can play part of the game stealth and part of it run and gun. The cutscenes do lag on a bit, but what keeps interested in them are that they put a little bit of interaction like seeing through snake's point of view or remembering something.Overall it is a fantastic game and pretty well paced can't wait to play until the end 
  
LittleBig Planet :I find LittleBig Planet to be very touching. I always smile when I play it , which is something I can't say about every game I play. Frustration in that game is almost null and in it when you fail you understand why you fail. The user created levels are a really good feature. I haven't tried to create a level yet but will soon. 
 
Uncharted: At first I found to be a little too frustrating simply for the fact that enemies appear before you know where cover is but eventually I got used to it. Now the story is fantastic I feel like it is a modern day Indiana Jones and the voice acting coupled with the animations just make it even better.  The platforming is pretty good and I never feel lost. My only complaint would be that I am know at the spot where the waterjets appear and the game freezes on me, it may be because of the new update or because it is a used copy(gamespot didn't have new) but I hope it is not the prior because I really found myself enjoying all parts of the game and hope I can continue it. 
 
Now that is what I think about these three games so far. What I want to know is what are some good multiplayer games and some good downloadable games ? 
I dont have many friends that own a PS3 so maybe by playing multiplayer games I can get some friends who knows?

Yeah the Uncharted problem is an issue with the new 3.00 firmware. I'm sure there will be a fix for that very soon though.

Wow, I found the exact opppsite for LBP. I was always dying in the dumbest spots, like say If you were working tohether with another player and trying to move a block or something, I would die because I woudl get caught in one area and some random stupid object would push against me and "squish" me when inreality it wouldnt even weigh enough to hurt me. Also, I found that everyone dies way too quick on multiplayer, and the shared life option is really a wrong move that the developers made. The jumping was really slow and the controls just didn't feel right and I just ended up not caring for the whole game at all, so I sold it. I just think the game is extremely overrated, and I have no idea why it is so revered. IMO, the physics are terrible which, in turn, makes the platforming terrible.  
 
Uncharted and MGS4 on ther other hand, are brilliant games. I wouldn't pay top dollar for Uncharted though - not enough replay value. I will wait unilt it drops in price to get the second. 
 
In terms of the multiplayer games, I can't help you there :( I get all my multiplyer games for 360, and I don't really have any interest in any PSN games. I hear Fat Princess and Trine are good though. 
 
Lile what AgentJ said, get Valkyria Chronicles. It definitely deserves the spot more than LBP. LBP's cuteness will wear off in a while and then you're just stuck with a bad platformer.

I too am new to the PS3 world.  The games that I got are Resistance 1, Ratchet and Clank, Killzone 2, and Valkyria Chronicles.  I agree with above opinions that Valkyria Chronicles should be in every PS3 owners library.  If you can find it that is.

Too bad you already picked up LBP since the Game of the Year Edition comes out this week.

I usually play LBP with my wife.   It's fun and albeit it's somewhat easy thanks to the generous amount of check points--I don't quite understand how xyzygy kept getting squished (???)--trying to collect all the bubbles and/or playing user created levels extend its replayability.   If you suck at a game, it doesn't necessarily follow that it's broken.  With that kind of attitude, I'd become one of the worse (read Irate Gamer) nostalgic reviewers on youtube.  

As for downloadable games: Fat Princess is a good game.  Zen Pinball is fun and pretty to look at.   I spent many ("many" is quite relative though) hours this summer, playing BC1943 and BC Bad Company.  Bad Company is fun, as long as you don't mind the occasional crash.

Get bf1943 and fat princess IMO. Hours of fun in those two relatively cheap games.

A good multiplayer game would be Killzone 2. As for downloadable games, there is always Flower, Pixel Junk Eden, and if your into survival horror there is Blood Siren.

I always recommend Killzone 2, it's an excellent game with great single player, but the multiplayer is where it really shines, try it out.

@xyzygy: I'm of the same opinion about LBP. I couldn't get that game into my PS3 fast enough when I first bought it, and couldn't get it out of it fast enough after playing for a few hours.  It would piss me off so bad when I'd push the jump button in time, but there goes Sackboy, dropping down the level for the 30th time in a row.  
 
Killzone 2 has pretty good multiplayer. I couldn't put it down for weeks after I bought it.  If you're into party games, I actually like Trivial Pursuit, and there's always the music games and whatnot of course.  I've heard Buzz is top notch, but I haven't delved into that yet.  
 
And I have to ask this, am I the only person in the world that thinks the PS3 Slim is really, really ugly? Especially compared to the PS3 'Fat.'  I understand why some one would want one (quieter, more energy efficient, etc.), but why is everyone saying it's 'sexy.'  It's so blah looking.

I agree with the Slim thoughts too. It's really boring looking now. The Fat looked like a building out of a science fiction movie, or like some alien structure. Plus, it was glossy and had that silver part. And i really like the touch buttons, and the colored PS logo which you could twist to whatever position the PS3 was in! (laying/standing).  
 
The Slim has buttons instead of touch sensitive, GREY PS logo (wtf), and it looks like someone took sandpaper to it. Plus, it's longer than the PS3 so, the size difference must be minimal. I haven't held one in my hands, but I have seen many, many rotations and angles of it, and comparisons with other consoles.

Kiillzone 2 would have excellent multiplayer as would LBP.
 
I recently got a PS3 Slim a while ago, add me if you want. It's "eroticfishcake" (unsurprisingly).

Deserves to be in everyone's collection, even if they don't have a PlayStation 3.
