why the hell would I play anything else on a PS3 lol... it's bad enough that all of the ones listed above are still stuck on that POS of a system
yeah a 20-30fps refresh rate that never was even remotely was stable is mindblowing! also that awful TAA! amazing!

my mind is so blown

I can't believe I'm going to say something positive about Halo 4, but Halo 4 looked better and ran way better than this.
now excuse me while I wash out my mouth with soap after saying this... fuck Halo 4 btw.
I wonder if the Mod's 'cute' detector is gonna pick up on ur console warring here

No particular order. I'm sure my list would change if I gave this more then 5 minutes of thought. So many good ps3 games.

God of war 3, kill zone 2, mass effect 2, resistance 2 (especially the co-op mode), dead space


Edit: fuckkkkk last of us should be on there

So does that mean they will update Gears 5 and Tactic to Unreal 5. That would be amazing! Also lol didn't the fanboys of Sony claim that Unreal Engine 5 works on PS5 lol?

We getting a western release of this?

They should do an offline version of final fantasy 11 and eventually 14

1. Afrika
2. Aquanaut's Holiday
3. Folklore
4. White Knight Chronicles
5. Lair

It's not about sales or critic accolades. It's about *panache* and swagger.

Demon souls
The last of us
Nier
Metal Gear solid IV
Folklore



Also Tokyo Jungle and Puppeter

A man of Culture!

White Knight Chronicles love warms my icy heart!

1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots. The absolute pinnacle in the MGS franchise in my opinion.
2. The Last Of US. Should this be a surprise to anyone??
3. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. (This game is actually in my top 5 of all time favorite games period)
4.Warhawk. Warhawk was an multiplayer-only game that was crazy addictive. A game that combined air and ground combat at the same time was crazy fun.
5. Infamous. Infamous was a great fun open world/sandbox action adventure game.

That's for exclusives (in that gen, anyway, obviously Yakuza is now on Xbox).

Never really noticed any performance issues when playing it.

The part about Halo 4 is completely untrue as well, at least graphics wise.

If only considering PS exclusives, Killzone 2 and GOW3 make my list. Then I’m quite torn between Uncharted 3 (still doesn’t get enough recognition for its MP) and Dragon’s Crown.

1) Batman Arkham City: game was just perfect. Great story, you felt like an unstoppable machine as Batman yet did the game still punish you if you didn't keep your guard up. The doctor freeze battle is still the best boss battle I ever played.
2) Grand Theft Auto 5: let me assure you that this is now my most hated game because of rockstar milking it on all four. Yet when it released. The graphics were superb, the city was huge yet had no deserted places. Around every corner was some kind of activity, the story was decent and Trevor Philips was awesome.
3) Uncharted 2. That game was just perfection. Graphics were unbelievable, game-play was Kickass, even the multiplayer was awesome (600+ hours) because it wasn't noob friendly like the other MP games nowadays. Only skill required
4) Red Deze Redemption: I actually didn't notice this two weeks until it released. Pleasant surprise. Played it for weeks. Games like this and GTA V proved that Rockstar is still the king in open world games.
5) Ni no kuni. Filled the empty hole of no Dragon Quest game on Playstation.

Honorable mentions: BioShock 2, Sleeping Dogs, Bulletstorm, Max Payne 3, Assassin's Creed 2 and Black Flag, Infamous 2, Little Big Planet 2, The darkness 2, The Saboteur, Skyrim...

So many with MSG4 in their lists, I have to agree Kojima has never again hit the same heights he managed to get in that game.



Truly only someone with 250 IQ can appreciate the meta commentary of this scene where a character huffs his own farts while inside a barrel. Kojima knows his fanbase which is why Johnny features so prominently throughout MGS4 to allow the player to self insert into a character they can relate to.

TLOU was really damn good. what a way to end the PS3 generation. shame about what happened with TLOU2 though.

Have to say GTAV but It's crazy to think that it was originally a PS3 game and here we are waiting for the PS5 version 8 years later...

Demon's Souls is also a good choice. That game was so damn good and without it we wouldn't have Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro, or Elden Ring.

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

It had the best console version of Portal 2.
portal 2 and console lol. i remember buying the PS3 version and i got it free on Steam. that was probably the point that i started to ditch consoles and move to PC. feels weird to think that i bought it on console. anyway, it's such a fantastic game that holds up well today.

Killzone 2
Killzone 3
Uncharted
Bioshock
The Last of Us

The first two are undisputed because of the thousands of hours of addiction in the multiplayer and the several enjoyed runs to achieve the platinums (particularly the co-op ones with my son) _ which i didn't achieved by the end because of secret trophies that didn't bother to look up, the trophy sistem never clicked in me.
The other three nominated in the list could be in any other position and i had to say it because it was really difficult to put them like that _ They are all number three to me... In the end they are all number one and others could be there to, that's how much they impacted and delighted me as a gamer.
