Selective Creation: Build the Perfect PS3 List!



  • Noticing how the last thread was a bit slow, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this coming up round will go quicker. Time to build the 25 essential PS3 games list! I'm really looking forward to this one as there are a lot of great games that came out for the system.

    SO: As always - Quick rule refresher for potential new players:

    Here's the breakdown: You've been given the power to green-light 25 games, but here's the catch: these 25 games will be the ONLY games to ever exist for the PS3. What should be the games that make the cut? By giving 25 select titles, you are essentially playing an inverse of Kill Your Babies.

    You can only give one title until three people have added after you OR 12 hours have passed since the last overall addition, NOT YOURS, so think really hard about which game should be on the list. It could be your favorite game, or if your favorite is already present, then you can add another you hold dear. Or if you think the PS3 is overrated as a whole, get to trolling if that makes you happy.

    To try to have a little diversity, I'm instituting a TWO per franchise cap. So if two entries of a series get put on the list, a third CAN NOT be added.

    Side note: Games that natively released on the PS3 count. No re-releases, no remasters. Multiplatform games count as long as they also released on the PS3.

    Once you have given a game, please keep a running list going for the benefit of the next person that would like to play. Because I'm pitching the game, I will refrain from adding to the list unless absolutely necessary because it would be unfair for me to skew the list in my favor.

    And so Allies, what are the 25 games that should be played, no matter what, for the PS3?

    Have fun!



  • Mass Effect 2

    Best of the first three games, IMO.



  • Mass Effect 2
    The Last of Us

    It's the console's perfect swan song.



  • Mass Effect 2
    The Last of Us
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel

    Fantastic JRPG that really only needs optional JP voices for perfection.



  • Mass Effect 2
    The Last of Us
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel
    Uncharted 2

    The best of the series. That beginning really made me love this game, and the series.

    The Last of Us
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel
    Uncharted 2

    Infamous

    The first Infamous is really good. I like the way it plays out like a well-oiled superhero comic, and there's some great seriousness in Cole's voice and words.

    @Brannox While Tails of Graces f is a remaster, the original is a japan only Wii game which makes Graces f the 1st release outside japan, is it still against the rules?

    The move from PS2 to PS3 did some wonders to Kratos' already epic (right word here) quest.

    Legitimately, I like this game. It's heavy on the melodrama towards the beginning (which most FFs are) but there's a surprising amount of depth to the quick combat and the plot ain't half bad. It gets way more hate than what it deserves. Plus, y'know, the goddess is in it.

    Might as well use the 2 per IP rule, havn't even played it yet but with as much I loved the 1st game and that this is a direct sequel, I'm sure it's fantastic.
