The Past: Looking Back at the Best Games on PS3

PS4 Attitude: "It feels a little strange to be writing a retrospective article about a console which is still going strong, but nevertheless, it won’t be long before the PlayStation 3 will have to play second fiddle to the PS4. To celebrate the launch of PS4 Attitude, I thought I’d look back at some of my favourite PS3 games, to hopefully prove just how much of an awesome console it really is." (Batman: Arkham City, Dragon Age: Origins, God of War 3, Heavy Rain , LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Portal 2, PS3, Ratchet & Clank: Tool of Descrution, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves)

2008 and 2009 was very interesting time, all those games came out, this is when PS3 started to BOOM with games, multiplayer and everything else. Such as good past :D

Only twice??? I played through it 5 times, and that was before trophies :D
breakpad  +   534d ago
..11 times here before the trophies and countless hours in MGO (best online tactical competitive game yet) ....unfortunately MGS 4 for me was the only WOW exclusive game for PS3...(damn Sony... support these japanese third party developers for AAA exclusives )

Yeah, played it once at launch, then vowed to play it again, but after some time had passed so that I could savour it again.

That second time was a couple of weeks ago..

I'd forgotten how to beat Vamp :)

Tales of Xillia, MGS4.
Angerfist  +   534d ago
MGS4
Killzone 2
LBP 1
Uncharted 2

Those were the groundbreaking Games on PS3, now doubt about it, that was also the Time PS3 started to rise.
Killzone 2 was my first Game played on a HDTV :)
Tontus  +   534d ago
Gran Turismo 5, God of War III, The Last of Us? These 3 are the most groundbreaking games, then UC2, LBP & MGS4.
Angerfist  +   533d ago
Opinions, Opinions. And GT5 was a disappointment to many as it was so inconsistent content wise, Graphics, Damage, etc. especially after 5 Years of waiting.
Shuyin  +   534d ago
Imo, MGS4 is the best looking game for its time.
And it's my personal game of the generation.

R.I.P MGO.. ;(...

For anyone who cares, here are a few more games that were on my original short list, before I cut it down to just ten games:

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Demon's Souls
Grand Theft Auto IV
Gran Turismo 5
Heavenly Sword
inFamous
Killzone 2
L.A. Noire
Red Dead Redemption
Rock Band 3

And that's still not even all of them! :)

Surprisingly for me it's ZoE HD: 2nd Runner (post patch).
Have played nothing like it since playing it on the PS2 and was thrilled to hear about the HD collection.

Japanese art direction, mecha, sci-fi, anime-ish, lightning fast mecha combat, plus it looked gorgeously futuristic. Dialogue and dub were hilarious too haha.

Really hope to god Hideo reignites the plan to do a next gen ZoE game because it would look tear jerkingly outstanding.

Still one of my favorite PS2 games ever. Wish the plans for the third game hadn't fallen through.
pyramidshead  +   533d ago
Well technically they haven't, Hideo left it on a very ambiguous note in his last interview about it asking fans if we really wanted a next gen ZoE so who knows. It's probably heavily back burnered, so I'm not losing faith yet! :P. X on the Wii-U always kinda reminds me of it...
Hicken  +   533d ago
Here's hoping. Just imagine a fully adult Leo- with improved skills that he showed were promising when you took him on in VV- with a fully functional Jehuty...

I'm imagining the story: what if they head to Earth and/or the moon? What if the characters from the anime make their game debuts(I think it'd be their debuts)?

Who cares? I want more Zero Shifting goodness!

Killzone 2 for MP.
The Last of Us for SP.
Ni No Kuni for JRPGs .
Demon Souls for the Hardcore unforgiving brilliance.
