Seems like, from your list anyway, you generally prefer Action/adventure games. If that's the case I'll list a few of my preferred titles that are PS3 exclusive:
Well not that I don't don't like them, but I'm more into Survival Horror games (it's just there aren't that many on the 360 and most are more action oriented than.. survival
). I loved Alan Wake (though he talks too much
), Alone in the Dark and Silent Hill (heck I've already surrender myself to the thought that if it has SH in the name I'll probably like it, My Little Sillent Hill: Mindf*ck is Magic
Infamous 1/2: Amazing open world (sandbox) Action/Adventure titles. Like GTA but you have Lightning Superpowers in stead of guns. You can get both games really cheap now as they've been out for a while.
Gah, I loathed GTA. Felt aimless, didn't like the characters or the setting.. come to think of it I generally don't like Rockstar games. I did enjoy the first Infamous somewhat though, albeit the "do missions, head to the sewers" was a bit repetitive. Gonna put 2 on the list since a friend of mine already has 1.
God of War 1/2/3: Amazing Hack n Slash action series (with some puzzles), all of which are available on the PS3 are low prices as they have been out over a year.
Got 1 and 2 on the ps2, and not that high on my list. I know people love the series but it just didn't grab me.. Same hapened with Dante's Inferno (only even worse with really lazy enemy models, pallette swaping is so 90's
). Refering to Dante's of course, GoW didn't had that prob.
Ratchet and Clank series: It seems like a kids games based on graphics but it's just a fun action game that's worth the pick up at a low price.
I remember the first one, but I'm somewhat tired of plataformers, couldn't get myself to finish Alice (which is a shame really). But I agree, R&C is a great series.
3d Dot Game Heroes: If your an old school gamer you'll enjoy this throw back to the 8 bit days. Pretty cheap title, though I would rent rather then own.
That one picked my interest though it's the first I heard of it. What's the genre?
Uncharted 1/2/3: If you don't play/own these games you may as well sell your system. Uncharted 2 was among the best game I have ever played, not playing it means your missing out on what may be the best games of this generation of systems.
Will get 3. 2 friends of mine have 1 & 2 so I might as well finish the trinity
Little Big Planet 1/2: Great series with INFINITE new content potential, as long as people still make maps.
2 is on the lsit. I know I said I'm tired of plataformers, but LBP reminds me of a time when 1) Platas where 2D and 2) I didn't need flea like reflexes to play the bloody thing! (I'm looking at you Sonic Generations!
If you are into JRPG's the PS3 also has a good amount of those titles around, though you may only see them as specialty stores as opposed to Best Buys and Targets.
That's one of the reasons for me to get the PS3. PS2 had a stupid good game library of those, Xenosaga, Shadow Hearts, Kingdom Hearts, Valquiria Profile, Disgaea, Persona/Digital Devil/Devil Summoner/Lucifer's Call, etc
The you have the PSN. I'm not going to lie, it leaves a lot to be desired for me. It's multiplayer is severely lacking when compared to XBL, but on the plus side it's free. One plus side to the PSN, as has been mentioned before, is the PS1 classics. Especially if you're a fan of arcade style games, as they import Japan only releases for sale on the PSN. Well worth the look.
Yeah I'm not too bothered about the multy because I'm more into single player and well... I still have my 360
I did enjoy the odds and bits from the XBLA and got plenty of games from it so I'm actually looking forward to all the arcade goodness from the other side
And thanks, this is the sort of input I'm looking forward to. It gives me an idea on what to keep an eye out for
Even more good news is that Sony just announced today that they are going to release ps2 titles for the psn. So thats a even bigger plus. especially as ive been seeing more and more stores like Gamestop are getting rid of their ps2 stock.
link for those who want more info
im hoping this gives me another chance to pick up the fatal frame games.
The cynic in me can't help but wonder if the diminishing retro-compatibility on the PS3 was a deliberate move to make people fork again for their PS1 and PS2 titles..
But the cynic gets trampled with the fanboy glee at the thought of finally getting those titles I never got to play
And HELL YEAH PROJECT ZERO! Gods I loved that series! Finished the first one, didn't maanged to finish the second or the third before my ps2 bought the dust.
Oh and I didn't mentioned this (though it's obvious), but I'm european so I go by the PAL releases (usually from the UK, you guys give me the best bang for my buck and with the added benefit of no annoying dubs. You go boys!)
