Getting PS3 today, which game to get? - Page 2

post #11 of 55
Red Dead Redemption!

God of War 3 and Uncharted 2 are also excellent choices.

I found Heavy Rain to be really slow in the beginning, but if you stick it out it's worth it. Definitely more of a cinematic than typical "gaming" experience though.

Heavy Rain is more of a cinematic experience, but I heard it was decent.
I'd go for Kill Zone 3, definitely God of War(s).

Little Big Planet is cute and addicting. I'll add more as I think of more, this is just off the top of my head.
I would honesty get games like oblivion, FO3 and skyrim on pc for the mods

And get PS3 for the exclusives such as god of war 3, heavy rain, Uncharted Series, infamous 2 was also kind of fun. Killzone kind of sucked but i never really like Ps3 fps games.

Killzone 1 was great, Killzone 2 was ok, Killzone 3 was awful.

Borderlands, GT5, God of War 3, Final Fantasy 13....(FF series is good just ignore some of the stupid stuff they put in that game(Story line is good but couple charecters are really annoying...vanille fang snow hope...youll understand when you play )

most of the games others are listing are awesome games...just off the top of my head (my ps3 is on other side of country right now)

well, if its a PS3, God of War 3 is a must, along with Uncharted 2, Infamous 1 and 2 are both great too.

If ur interested in RPGs, u should consider getting Mass effect 2, its a good game as well.

For Shooters Resistance 2 is pretty good, Killzone i havent really played but heard good things about

Although i know u didnt mention u like fighting games, but i highly recommend getting Mortal Kombat, trust me, even i am not too found of fighting games, but that game is just...awesome, loved every minute of that game

GT5, its amazing if you like driving games, Uncharted 2 (try and pick up 1 as well though), inFamous 2 (same as uncharted, try and pick up the first one), LittleBigPlanet 2, no point getting the first one, Resistance series is good, and another one is MAG, its a shooter with 256 players in each game, pretty fun. Oh and GoW 3, if you don't buy that then you are seriously missing out. Burnout paradise was pretty fun as well, so was Fallout 3, but New Vegas sucked, and Heavy Rain was like being in a movie which was cool but as others have said, not really a game. Killzone is good, but takes a while to get used to, I wouldn't bother with CoD unless you're a social gamer, because that's what most of my friends seem to play, but I don't particularly like it.
Damn, just saw you said game, not huge list of games. My bad

been mentioned all ready, but little big planet 1 & 2 are fun to play with a g/f, or somebody that doesn't really like modern games.

I play tiger woods with the move because I like getting frustrated.

GT5
Uncharted series
God of War 3
Red Dead Redemption
Heavy Rain

If you've played Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3, Metal Gear Solid 4

PLUS

Gran Turismo 5
Just Cause 2
Demons Souls
God of War 3
Resistance: Fall of Man

Meh... aside from God of War 3, Demons Souls, and MGS4, the Xbox and PS3 are pretty interchangable right now. Don't listen to people about Uncharted, inFamous, or Killzone. They are all subpar games... some people swear by them, but they really can't stack up to the goodness that is MGS4, God of War 3, or Demons Souls. You'll play Uncharted 2 once and then either forget about it, or play the multiplayer (I'm not big on console multiplayer). inFamous is worse than GTA4 (and GTA4 was pretty bad compared to its predecessors, even though critics slobbered all over its knob), and Killzone is just a cookie-cutter FPS.

Don't get me wrong though, I enjoy my PS3. It's just that it, like any other console, has some pretty overrated games that I believe people too often recommend without having already played them.
