I'm gonna focus on games that you can only play on PS3, so I'm excluding games that have remasters and remakes.

1. Metal Gear Solid 4
2. Infamous
3. Infamous 2
4. Tekken Hybrid
5. Nier (also on X360).

TLOU, Demon’s Souls, Ratchet & Clank TOD, Bad Company 1, and Portal 2 round out the top 10 for me.

Singularity, InFamous 1 and Motorstorm Apocalypse get honourable mentions.

Very different from my Top 5

The Last Of Us
Demon Souls
Uncharted 2

I can't even name 5 sorry PS3 had shitty exclusives. If you wanted to stretch it maybe Gow3 and MGS4 but I couldn't finish them so they don't count

I’ll do exclusives:

1. Resistance 2 - The campaign was ok and all but this is really all about that multiplayer. The PvP was a bit uneven but had fantastic and unique moments to it. The real star is the class based co-op with up to 8 players, where you could not complete a map without all three classes present. True teamwork was required through the synergies of the different roles and I haven’t played anything as dependant on these types of interactions between classes since. Which makes the fact that the servers are turned off even more painful; no lan and only two player splitscreen.

2. God of War 3 - This series used to have the best melee combat out of any Sony game, and I don’t think they’ve had anything as good since. In my book, GoW is only second to DMC and Ninja Gaiden. For the most part, I’d put it on par with Platinim Games output, altough there are outliers with brooms. Ascension might be the peak gameplay-wise, but as a package GoW3 takes it.

3. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift - I like all three games, and for different reasons too, but I still come back to the second game the most. It really has something extra to it, other than the terrain based driving the series excel at. Fantastic track design that lends itself well to repetition, especially considering all the different types of vehicles. I might never stop playing this game.

4. Warhawk - This game really felt like Battlefield made arcade for consoles. With easy to pick up and play, that had less emphasis on aiming and more relaxed approach to movement, it was great as a splitscreen experience. Too bad the amazing sequel didn’t catch on as it should’ve.

5. InFAMOUS - Some things are greater than the sum of its parts. Infamous wasn’t particulary good looking and it didn’t have the deepest mechanics or the greatest story, but it was its own thing and had a strong vibe to it. The sequel improved on most aspects and I wish we would get a third entry in the series. Second son was cool and all but it wasn’t the continuation infamous deserve.

Is the question the best games you could play on PS3 or the best game you need to buy a PS3 to play? The best games I played on PS5 are a mix of both. I was PC360 but Bought a PS3 just for MGS4 then sold it, then bought another when I got a real job and my 3rd 360 shit the bed.
  • MGS4
  • GTAV
  • TLOU
  • UC2
  • The First South Park RPG.
I'd put UC3 in there but it was similar to UC2 and I really played nothing else on the system. Oh I bought a move bundle and tried to play Heavy Rain with the motion controls. I fucking hated that.
