Top 5 PS3 exclusive games

One area where Sony manage to consistently trump Microsoft in this generation of the great console war is exclusives. Coming up with the top 5 was a bit of a stretch, and there are plenty of other PS3-only games worth your time aside from this lot. Anyway, on with the list! (PS3)

there is wayyyy to many maybe top 15
Merrill  +   1098d ago
Demon's Souls is my #1, by far.
HammadTheBeast  +   1098d ago
It all depends on the genre you prefer. Playstation exclusives cover almost every single genre out there. Personally, GT5 was my favorite.
indubitably  +   1097d ago
no way, Sony's best franchises are GT, Uncharted, Ratchet and Clank, and Metal Gear. I can see someone being really into Demon's Souls I guess but the rest of the franchises are weak in comparison to other games in their genre.
theBAWSE  +   1097d ago
in all seriousness it needs a top FIFTEEN list

journey motorstorm and starhawk need to be in there somewhere
plaZeHD  +   1097d ago
What about God of War, Heavy Rain, Little Big Planet, Kill-Zone[2], Journey, MLB The Show?
aCasualGamer  +   1097d ago
This top 15 list is based on the games with the greatest WOW moments and the most fun i had with them over the longest period:

1. Heavy Rain (The only time a game made me emotional)
2. God of War 3 (Epic got a new definition)
3. Uncharted 2 (Visuals got a new definition)
4. Killzone 2 (Best multiplayer this gen)
5. Resistance 1 (2nd best multiplayer)
6. Uncharted 3
7. Killzone 3
8. Uncharted 1
9. Metal Gear Solid 4 (Snake! got a new definition)
10. Heavenly Sword
11. Motorstorm 1 (Best arcade racer)
12. Gran Turismo 5 (Best simulator racer)
13. Littlebigplanet
14. Warhawk (3rd best multiplayer)
15. Siren Blood Curse

Didn't even mention great titles such as Infamous, Journey, Flower, Folklore, Ratchet and Clank etc.

2. Demon's Souls
3. Uncharted 2
4. Heavy Rain
5. God of War 3

The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls will be in the list later :)
Merrill  +   1098d ago
I played and finished Heavy Rain, but I find the game extremely over rated. It had great atmosphere, but the writing was atrocious. So many holes in the story, terrible controls, stiff animations.

Why the does the killer have internal dialog about trying to find the killer? It makes no sense at all. Developers really need to start hiring actual writers for games, I expect better.

I would prefer a minimalist story, aka Demon's Souls to a overly melodramatic, hole filled story that is Heavy Rain. Let us hope his next game has better writing and execution to it.
jammy_70  +   1098d ago
Mgs4 was awesome but just not enough gameplay to many cutscenes. Uncharted 2 has to be the best, killzone 2 up there to.
3-4-5  +   1098d ago
They all have a dark look to them...

Sony needs to use the other 5 million colors in the human visible spectrum.
Donnieboi  +   1098d ago
@ merrill: okay so u prefer a different type of storytelling, but games like Heavy Rain are heavily story based. So if you dont like that, then that's your problem. It was meant to be dramatic. After all, it was trying to blur the line between movies and games
Philoctetes  +   1098d ago
@ 3-4-5

Yeah, I really get sick how the Uncharted series is nothing but greys and browns.
Merrill  +   1098d ago

My point is that they didn't do a very good job at it. I love a good story, but I would prefer they do a coherent job of it. I have nothing against a story based game, but make sure you at least check your story for obvious holes and questions left unanswered. They need better writers.

Other than the internal dialog of the killer looking for the killer, why does Madison act shocked when she is told who the killer is? She never met or heard of him? Why the hell did Ethan keep having black outs? No explanation at all, moments like these took me out of the experience.

If you didn't notice any of the story problems, then that's not my fault. Look them up, it's pretty silly.

I did enjoy the game, but it's no top 5, or even a top 10.
#1.2.6 (Edited 1098d ago ) | Agree(5) | Disagree(4) | Report
SolidStoner  +   1098d ago
Metal Gear
Gran Turismo
Little big Planet

from any direction..
DOMination-  +   1098d ago
The typewriter bit was terrible. Really crap writing lol. Still loved it though.
N4Flamers  +   1097d ago

I loved heavy rain for its mood an atmosphere but I agree with you 100%. The story in a story driven game should be the main focus but most of that game had weak to incoherent writing.

The blackouts that Ethan kept having were explained though and here's the answer. When Jason was killed the killer was at the scene and him and Ethan developed a psychic link. Every time a child was killed Ethan would have a blackout or hallucinations. This part of the game was not finished and scrapped from the final product, but they left most of it in there to cast suspicion on Ethan. That just tells you how lazy and unorganized quantic dreams was.

Heavy rain spoilers

The other retarded part was in the antique shop where the man is killed with the typewriter and the Shelby looks shocked to discover him dead yet he's the one who killed him and no one else was back there to see his reaction.
How about how ethan escaped a platoon of cops and a helicopter by falling off a small building and carjacking a taxi while the cops just watched him.
omi25p  +   1098d ago
I only actually like 5 ps3 exclusives

uncharted 1
uncharted 2
infamous 1
infamous 2
Heavy rain
ChickenOfTheCaveMan  +   1098d ago
Even though I really enjoyed Infamous 1, I played it again after Infamous 2 to get a missing trophy. I couldn't do it, 15 minutes in I gave up because they enhanced so much things in the 2nd one, the 1st one was really crappy to play.

Great games age well and that's really not the case with Infamous 1.
omi25p  +   1098d ago
well i first played infamous 1 two years after it came out and i loved it.

I still play it sometimes
nix  +   1098d ago

Where's God of War 3, Infamous 2, Gran Turismo 5, LittleBigPlanet 2, ........
LOGICWINS  +   1098d ago
Yeah, I can agree with Valkyria Chronicles and Uncharted 2. Everything else no. I would have replaced Demon Souls with Infamous 2.
plaZeHD  +   1098d ago
1, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
2, Little Big Planet 1 and 2
3, God Of War 3
4, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots
5, KillZone 2
But soon this will change.
abzdine  +   1098d ago

Ni no Kuni
Tales of Graces f
Uncharted 1, 2, 3
Ratchet & Clank Future 1, 2
Metal Gear Solid 4
3D Dot Game Heroes
Resistance 1, 2, 3
Valkeria Chronicles
InFamous 1, 2
Booyah  +   1097d ago
How's Ni no Kuni ? I'm a bit scared to buy it since I didn't like the demo and I don't trust gaming sites opinion. Should I wait for the game to be used or support the developper and buy it ?
Relientk77  +   1097d ago
I love it, the demo I wasn't to thrilled with because they threw you into boss fights like right away, and didnt explain the battle system at all. So you had to guess the controls and how to fight the battles.
Booyah  +   1093d ago
Alright ! Thanks ! I'll go trade a few games for it then.
RuperttheBear  +   1098d ago
I'd have to say, and in order -

Uncharted 2
Demons Souls
God of War 3
Uncharted 1
j-blaze  +   1098d ago
. MGS4
. Heavy Rain

3 empty slots reserved for VersusXIII, Beyond and The Last Guardian, i just know these games will be masterpieces!
NewVegasTroop  +   1098d ago
1. Killzone 2
2. Uncharted 2
3. ...
4. ...
5. ...

holy crap cant even fill a top 5 list!! those are the only PS3 exclusives that i liked (that a own), if fallout new vegas and red dead redemption were exclusives ill put them in those spots but still wouldnt fill the list :T
Tontus  +   1098d ago
God of War III is by far the best playstation 3 exclusive.

1. God of War III.
2. LittleBigPlanet (1 & 2)
-(and then the quality drops significantly)
3. Uncharted 2 (1 & 3 sucked)
4. Resistance 3 (SP)
5. Heavy Rain

And yes I've played MGS4 and thought it was absolute rubbish. GT5 is a huge disappointment and I don't like Killzone 2 but Killzone 3 was okay. There's no other noteworthy exclusives to talk about.

By the end of this year it will probably be:

1. God of War: Ascension
2. God of War III
3. The Last of Us
4. LittleBigPlanet )1&2)
5. Uncharted 2/ Beyond Two Souls

my top series
1 - Resistance
2 - Ratchet and Clank (funny both are from IG, coincidence )
3 - Uncharted
4 - Killzone
5 - Infamous
6 - God of War

But my favourite series of all is Jak and Daxter , unfortunately theres no adventures for them this gen
xXBlondieVanHarlowXx  +   1097d ago
I love that they moved on from the Jak games, they created 2 masterpieces in doing so (Uncharted and The Last of us). But i hope they find the time next-gen to surprise us and give us Jak 4. My life would be complete.
BladerunnerZX  +   1097d ago
Resistance 1 is a great game Resistance 2 and 3 ... not so great.
TheFallenAngel  +   1097d ago
Ahh Resistance. But only fall of man deserves a mentioning.
IKizzLE  +   1098d ago
No order:

Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots
Killzone 2
Uncharted 2 Among Thieves
Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception
God of War 3

my top 5:
1. God of War 3
2. Metal Gear Solid 4
3. Folklore

5. Motorstorm Pacific Rift
BitbyDeath  +   1098d ago
Replace Folklore with Heavy Rain and that'll be my list.

Good games.
remanutd55  +   1098d ago
yea its hard to name only 5 ps3 games, Heavy Rain is in my top 10 games as well as Ratchet and Clank A Crack in Time, inFAMOUS2, Uncharted2 and Resistance Fall of Man.
sypher  +   1097d ago
Yakuza getting no love? Excellent games that deserve high praise!
Drainage  +   1097d ago
anyone who has KZ3 in their list is a ps3 fanboy . that game is no where near top 10. maybe Killzone 2s multiplayer but cmon
MrAnderson  +   1097d ago
Metal Gear 4 was terrible, almost entirely cut scenes, some crawling around on your stomach, and a lengthy forced "follow that guy" mission that made up the entirity of act 3.

and this is coming from someone who to this day consideres metal gear 1 + 3 as some of the best games of all time.

4 was an overated joke.
StreetsofRage  +   1097d ago
My top 5 hasn't changed in a long time...

5. Resistance
4. Demon's Soul
3. Uncharted 2
2. Motorstorm
1. God of War 3
DigitalSmoke  +   1097d ago
Look at all these amazing games, EXCLUSIVE! to the PS3, anybody who still says (there still are some) the PS3 failed, needs to get both thumbs chopped off.
Fakdafakinfakerz  +   1097d ago
Killzone 2 is my favorite. Best online MP ever (imo).
Kos-Mos  +   1097d ago
Demon`s Soul`s stands tall with Metal Gear Solid 4.
