Good list.
guitarded77  +   1207d ago
WTF is Bulletstorm doing on the list? I like Bulletstorm, but one of the 10 best PS3 games?!?!? Come on.
-GametimeUK-  +   1207d ago
I can't believe MGS4 is on the list. MGS4? Really? Top 10?

I think not... Black Ops should be in there, Demons Souls or Dark Souls, Portal 2 and Bioshock.
Abash  +   1207d ago
The list felt random, like "10 games some guy played and thought they all rocked!"

I would have added a lot more PS3 only games like LittleBigPlanet 2, inFamous 2, God of War III, etc. that are some of my favorite games ever

Black Ops really? I hope your kidding
BlackTar187  +   1207d ago
Gametime why is MGS4 a problem?

What are you saying exactly then you name Black ops and portal 2? Good games yes but not MGS4 level sorry.

I love Bulletstorm!
memots  +   1207d ago
Bulletstorm lol ..

I picked that game for $5 and it was wasted money i didn't even have the patience for this pos.
sdozzo  +   1207d ago
BulletStorm. Haha.
ThanatosDMC  +   1207d ago
Bulletstrom... hahahah... it's better to buy a PS+ subscription instead of that game.

Yakuza for beat em up and jumping on people's faces three times and have them pay you for kicking their ass.

I don't know but that's why I only said "good".
SilentNegotiator  +   1207d ago
Bulletstorm?!?! *pukes*

That crap isn't even a top 100 of this generation's games. WTF is it doing on a top ten ps3 games list?
Blastoise  +   1207d ago
If you say so lol. Mass effect 3 over Demons Souls/Dark souls? Get outta here. Needs more Resistance 3, Infamous, Disgaea 4, Valkyria Chronicles, Little big planet & God of war.

My list would get rid of pretty much all the Multiplats, the PS3 has enough great games without resorting to Mass effect 3, Bulletstorm & Red Dead Redemption. Pffft

You make it sound like playing multiplat games is a weakness. Most of the best games this gen are multiplat, and this is what this article is about.

For those who don't wish to scroll past his pages.

Mass Effect 3, Borderlands 2, Heavy Rain, Bulletstorm, Dishonored, Batman: Arkham City, Journey, MGS4, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 3

Now...I see no Folklore, no Demon's/Dark Souls, no Valkyria Chronicles, no Dragon's Dogma, no inFAMOUS 2...This site's list is pretty lame. He's only including popular titles and giving no opinion of his own. Silly tip-toe sites.

I still even after playing it a ton of times

Would re buy Uncharted 2 over any game on the PS3

It is the Ultimate PS3 Experience
Lovable  +   1207d ago
I agree. U2 redefined cinematic experience
Abdou23  +   1207d ago
Agree, U2>U3
stevenhiggster  +   1207d ago
Uncharted 2 is the best game on PS3 imho. The dudes list is utter nonsense.
I'm not even gonna start with what games should and shouldn't be on the list plenty of people have said everything already.
In all honesty with the exception of UC3 none of those games would be on my 10 best games on PS3 list!

Take a guess and you won't even have to click.A completely predictable list.
Y_5150  +   1207d ago
I think this list sucks! It differs my list and my list would have at least %70 be PS3 exclusive games!
WeskerChildReborned  +   1207d ago
Mostly multiplatforms but no God of war?
-GametimeUK-  +   1207d ago
Multi Plats are still good you know? Some of the greatest games this gen are multiplats. The fact a game is exclusive does not make it any better or worse.

Batman:AC sounds right to be in a top 10 if you ask me.

Missing out God of War is practically a sin, though. I agree with you there.

WeskerChildReborned  +   1207d ago
Yea but when the list has "PS3 games" i expect at least more exclusives and even though their are some great multiplatforms, i still feel like God of War was better than some of the games on the list.
Hicken  +   1207d ago
Nobody's saying there aren't still good multiplats. Batman, for example, definitely belongs, as does Red Dead.

But when you look at the BEST games on PS3, it's not a stretch to say most of the list SHOULD be PS3 exclusives. The best exclusives on a system are- and I can't think of any exceptions- better than the best multiplats. Is there a multiplat on the 360 better than Halo, Gears, or Forza in their respective areas? Is there an RPG better than Lost Odyssey?

That's four out of ten already.

This is, for the PS3, a list that SHOULD include Metal Gear, among others; dunno how you'd put Black Ops, of all things, in the list over MGS4.

andibandit  +   1206d ago
nice list, now show me how you count to 10.
-GametimeUK-  +   1207d ago
Bulletstorm made the list? Seriously? Bulletstorm made the list and Little Big Planet 2 was nowhere to be seen?
Metal Gear Solid 4 also made the list? They must be smoking crack if they think it is a top 10 game. Heavy Rain is good, but not a top 10 game either. A list of games better than these 3 games that didn't make the list.

Dark Souls, Demons Souls, Portal 2, Bioshock, CoD: Black Ops, CoD4, Rayman Origins, Warhawk, INfamous, Mirrors Edge, God of War 3, Little Big Planet 2, Killzone 2, Burnout Paradise, Dead Sace, Assassins Creed 2, Fallout, Vanquish, Elder Scrolls, Deus Ex HR. Heck, I even enjoyed Dead Rising 2 more than these games. Some great additions to the list, but missing out LBP is criminal.
BlackTar187  +   1207d ago
How is MGS4 not a top 10 game? What are you smoking?
-GametimeUK-  +   1207d ago
Because of all the games I listed. Plus MGS4 was only good for the first 2 acts.
BlackTar187  +   1207d ago
Killzone 2, Burnout Paradise, Dead Sace, Assassins Creed 2, Fallout, Vanquish, Elder Scrolls, Deus Ex HR. Heck, I even enjoyed Dead Rising 2

All good games. MGS4 to fans was great. COD black ops? Portal 2? also good games but not uber awesome. And portal 2 had to be on of the easiest games i have ever played.

Anywyas to each his own you didn't provide any type of backign to your claim but that's okay.
Lovable  +   1207d ago
My list from the game that I played. Note: Games that I played

1. Demon's Souls -> Just perfection
2. Tales of Graces -> One of the best JRPG this gen
3. Uncharted 2 -> Mind blowing set pieces
4. MGS4 -> Stealth action at its finest
5. Borderlands -> so addicting (I haven't played B2 yet)
6. FF 13-2 -> Very fun game absolute pure bliss playing this
7. Crysis 2 -> not sure why many hates this, but I thought it was really fun especially when I cloak kill the enemies
8. Valkyria Chronicles -> From start to finish, I couldn't stop playing this.
9. COD 4 -> I played the Single player of this so many times I lost count already.
10. RE 5 -> Coop was extremely fun.
Crystallis  +   1207d ago
I agree with everything on your list except for crysis 2. I found it to be very, very generic shooter. Although the cloaking was cool as you mentioned, that couldn't save this game in my opinion.
Rampaged Death  +   1207d ago
Uncharted 2 + 3
God of War Trilogy
The Walking Dead
Mass Effect 2
Asassin's Creed 2
Heavy Rain

Holeran  +   1207d ago
Bulletstorm? Put the crack pipe down.
Tenkin  +   1207d ago
Missing Infamous, LBP, Valkyria chronicles and the Souls games
aquamala  +   1207d ago

OPSM UK.Biggest ass kissers in the business.

Actually expected games that took advantage of the PS3 than multiplatformers. But that's just me
SolidGear3  +   1207d ago
Fallout 3
Metal Gear Solid 4
Heavy Rain
L.A. Noire
Uncharted 2
Mass Effect 2
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
jmc8888  +   1207d ago
Ehh I don't really see the point of the list.

Other than Heavy Rain, Uncharted 3, and Journey, the rest can be played on 360/PC. Except....

As for MGS4, while I'm sure the game is fun, the multiplayer portion was shutdown, which is why I bought it at launch.

6 of the 10 are multiplatform, one is only half the game, one is a downloadable title, and the other two are 1-3 years old...with everyone and the mother who owns the PS3 knows or owns Uncharted 3.

Heavy Rain is a good game, still have to finish it. Already preordered the developer's next game, which looks awesome. The name of it is escaping me at the moment, but it looks awesome, and the protagonist is played very well by Ellen Page.
aquamala  +   1207d ago
So your opinion on heavy rain/uncharted/journey would change if they are on other platforms? How would the games change? Is dark souls worse than demons souls because its not an exclusive?
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1207d ago
lol no skyrim? aww
DarthBigE  +   1207d ago
Top ten list is too small
There are to many great games that came out for ps3
yes i think the authors list sucks
Tontus  +   1207d ago
God of War III is the best game on the PS3. How the hell did the official Playstation magazine miss out on the most critically acclaimed, most beloved and best-selling hack n' slash in the genre of all time? The retard responsible for that tragedy of a list should be fired and feel ashamed.

AIndoria  +   1207d ago
VALKYRIA CHRONICLES! GET IT. It's one of the best PS3 exclusives out there. So underrated.

Also, MGS4, Demon Souls, Flower, Journey, Unfinished swan :P
josephayal  +   1206d ago
BulletStorm is my Favorite PS3 Game, Good Job Buddy
sdplisken  +   1206d ago
1. MGS4
2. Demon's Souls
3. Uncharted 2
4. God of War 3
5. Killzone 2
6. Infamous 1 or 2
7. Heavy Rain
8. GT5
9. Little Big Planet
10 Twisted Metal

get ready to add the last of us, beyond, and the last guardian to the list
kupomogli  +   1206d ago
There are good games on this list, but for a top 10 PS3 list, this list sucks balls.
ajax17  +   1206d ago
That list is too random. They should have made a list for the best budget games right now, or something.
