My PS3 made me a better gamer

From the article, "My PS3 has made me a better gamer. I’m more accepting of different genres and willing to give games I never would have played before due to genre or distribution method. I’m being exposed to more wonderful games, which means more stories to experience and adventures to be had. It’s a fantastic system and I can’t wait to see what happens next with the PS4." (PS3)

What a great read, especially the part where she say "The Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection is surely a thing of beauty and a modern masterpiece." Totally agree.
When I was playing PS2 games back in the days I didn't bother with Ico and SotC, but with the PS3 remaster collector edition. I am amaze of how a game like this last gen and how dumb of me not playing on the PS2.
Thanks Sony for supporting gamers and Team Ico for making quality and unique games.

The Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection was a day 1 buy for me. Even today this generation u wont find an experience like those 2 masterpieces. The Last Guardian will be an amazing game & im sad to hear that it will be Fumito Ueda last console game & I didnt know he was leaving since i been gone for a while but im so glad he is creating The Last Guardian on the ps4 because ive always dreamed of Fumito Ueda bring his game to life with the graphics there is now. I already know it will be a masterpiece.

Yup I just finished SOTC HD on PS3 and just down loaded ICO. SOTC is liek no other experience.

Its the only game that messes with your emotions.
Its a man's puzzle game.

It also was the early games like RE4 to have influence on many 3rd person platformers and shooters on PS3 today. Particularly Uncharted, God of War III and Tomb Raider.

Oh absolutely. The Last Guardian is going to be extraordinary and well worth the wait if Ico and Shadow of the Colossus are any indication.

So much diversity on PS3. For me that's the reason I like PS3 for this generation as I did with PS2!

We have platform games, first person shooters, RPG's, RTS in Valkyrie Chronicles, action adventure, hack and slashers and much more!

people can argue about the "console war" but every ps3 owner knows who won

I played so many different types of games this gen on my ps3 that I dont think I would of touched if they came out last gen. I own about 75 physical copies of games just on my ps3 which is an improvement from the 20 games I had for my ps2 and gamecube.

i own about 165 games, with about 120 being physical. I've always been a all around gamer, my least favorite genre's being sports, FPS and casual.

Thats an impressive number of games! Ive been an all around gamer as well with fps being my least favorite since im not much of a multiplayer gamer.

you can never go wrong with a willingness to try new & different types of games. Some of my most memorable gaming experiences came from just saying what the heck that looks different might as well give it a try.

team ico & studio japan rocks.. Or is it japan studio?? anyway they make interesting new games that feel refreshing to play.. Not the same old story over n over.. Their games arent even story driven which makes em even better.. U play it & thats it.. no cinematics taking up half of the experience... Kinda like demon/dark souls where u just dive in & go..

ps3 definitely had great variety, no doubt it had the best story driven games, but i think the PC's game library is the best suited for an all around gamer.

PC has hardly any games. Excluding the Indie games, PC has what Diablo 3 (coming to consoles). SImCity 4? LOL! WoW?!

99.999% of retail games can already be played on either PS3 or 360.

If anything PC has the worst, unless you are a nerd and play WoW of course.

1 good game on PC usually is equal to 5 on ps3/360 as far as replay value , games like Dota2,SC2. I don't play WOW but playing games and commenting on video game sites makes you a geek anyway. The article talks about expanding horizons when it comes to games, yet ps3/360 owners have never touched RTS games, mmorpgs, or MOBAs at least not good ones. along with the best version of third party games, pc has the best variety. saying pc only has those games you listed is like saying ps3 only has uncharted, god of war, and MGS. only nameing the most popular games. if you don't actually know, don't assume.

The PS3 made me a better gamer too. I had plenty of time to rethink my playing strategies each time the XMB interface stalled.
