The 20 best games on PlayStation 3

I don't see either of the inFamous games on this list, nor any good HD collections such as Sly, Jak and Daxter etc. Instead it's loaded with tons of multiplatform games.

Meh.

I only have 6 of those games, which ios kind of pitiful, but most of the ones i don't have on the list i have no interest ion having either.

it's probably worth pointing out though, that Skyrim is better on PC or Xbox, and the orange box should be owned on PC because it's badly ported to the PS3, by a third party, and is no longer supported on PS3.

You forgot Shadows of the Damned again CVG :P.



Personally I'd replace GTA IV with Saints Row The Third, Battlefield 3 with Battlefield Bad Company 2, Orange Box with Resistance 3 and Braid with InFamous 2.

No MGS4?

On a top 20 list? Surely not...

Thou shall not write a "ps3 must have list" without MGS4.

A PS3 'must have' list that lists 15 games available on other major platforms and then misses a lot of the PS3 exclusive gems... Oh, and Grunt was the "tank-born Krogan fighting for clan acceptance" in ME2, not Wrex.

Lair.


Why is there no MGS and arkham asylum instead of city? Infamous 2 is super sweet as well but gets no love. Wasn't Orange Box a disaster on PS3?

Super Stardust is also one of the best arcade games IMO but it always seems to be forgotten while inferior games like Geometry Wars get all the publicity.
Some cheerleader at school or hot secretary at the office may not think you are cool but let’s be real, those very same bitches don’t love bacon and still use IE to explore the web.

The worst top list I've ever seen in my life. Rock band is better than uncharted series. Better than Killzone 3? Metal gear? Gt5? What a joke of a list

The top 20 list on ps3, is almost exactly same as their 360 list. It's utter garbage that someone wrote in 2 mins to fill some cyber space, as it's a bank holiday monday I reckon.

As for orange box, it was better on 360, but it's ok on ps3, they patched it up a fair bit, and skyrim is also better on 360 in many respects(especially if you're someone who has had issues with frame rate drops), but in other respects it's actually better on ps3, less screen tear for example, and less jaggies. However, as rule of thumb, you can usually say most multiplats are slightly better on 360, but there's a few exceptions to rule.

I have to agree with the lack of Resistance 3 & Infamous 2 on this list, both incredible games & easily in the top 20 PS3 games. I would have Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time in my top 20 as well.

Only 7 of the games on this list aren't or won't soon be available for the PC: Rock Band, RDR :!: :?: , LittleBigPlanet, Uncharted, Journey, GoW and Valkyria Chronicles. In the past, console and computer games used to be mostly separate markets, but in recent years they have been converging to some extent.

I think it's mainly a positive development. Perhaps consoles have lost a bit of their special unique character, but the upside is that for example games by PC stalwarts like Valve and Bethesda are nowadays available on consoles as well. At the same time, you have excellent versions of some previously console-only games including the latest Streetfighter and Sonic on the PC.

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.
