PlayStation’s groundbreakers – the games that set a new standard for the platform

We look at the games that go beyond fun to play and challenge the definition of genre and videogaming itself. The industry’s better for these Bioshocks, Icos and Heavy Rains having existed, so let’s doff our caps and pay tribute. Doff it… (BioShock, okami, PS2, PS3, Shadow of the Colossus)

Hmm. Not the top 8 most would probably think of. As listed:

BioShock
Ico
Shadow of the Collosus
Portal 2
Heavy Rain
Resident Evil 4
LittleBigPlanet 2
Okami

I'd argue RE4 was more "groundbreaking" for the GameCube, especially as a timed exclusive. Surprised no Journey, seeing as he liked other arty games like Ico /SOTC/Okami from last gen.

Doubly odd that OPM UK lists Okami HD as top 8 http://www.officialplaystat... , but also gave it its lowest score on metacritic, 80/100 http://www.officialplaystat... .

OPM UK is a shady site. Not very supportive of the PS brand. Would expect
a little loyalty.

Only a few of those (namely Heavy Rain, Ico/Shadow, LBP, and Okami) I would consider to be truly groundbreaking, especially considering that some of those titles originally released on competing platforms. There are several others I would say are more groundbreaking than what's mentioned here. Alomg the likes of MGS1, GTA3, Gran Turismo, RE2 just to name a few
I guess it all depends on one's viewpoint of "groundbreaking".

Great picks, Shadow of the Colossus is just a gem, a must play for any gamer out there!

Ico and SotC are both amazing games and I'm looking forward to Fumito Ueda, The Last Guardian. It sucks that after that game he's done with Sony. I hope he continue working with Sony in the future.
