Nice list.

What a down to earth, likeable man. Listening to him talk about Journey is quite moving. I have yet to play Journey but i will definitely get it for the PS4.


Oh well, i still have my PS3, it's not going anywhere. Ill buy it on PS3. Ive heard such good things about it.

Don't think that's gonna happen...
Conzul  +   530d ago
Maybe if we clamour for it enough...
The New Sony might do something about it.
Persistantthug  +   530d ago
Maybe through GAIKAI.
That's certainly possible.

GTA V made me cry.... With laughter, every time I switched to Trevor.... Best one when he was on a scooter, chasing someone, 'i didn't mean to kill your friends, your being rude'!! Classic!

Journey... it is up there with the greatest games I've ever played. It was refreshing and I just cannot fault it.

PS3 had a good life, now I'm waiting for November 29th (unfortunately I live in England).

That's something I like about the Sony crew. They at least try to appear honest and act like real gamers.
black0o  +   530d ago
u mean the new SONY ;)

*caugh* 2006-2007 *caugh*
Kryptix  +   530d ago
There's a new Sony now?

Well, I gotta thank the old Sony cause the PS3 was incredible, I'm gonna miss them. They're the reason why Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, and many other good studios got to where they are right now.

I see those Ebonics classes are paying off... Cough -cough
HonestDragon  +   530d ago
Agreed. They are all very likable. Also, I find Yoshida's picks interesting. It would be a task for myself to only pick 10, but I would really have to buckle down and think about it.

how old is he now?

Journey was an amazing gaming experience. I'm grateful that I had a chance to experience it. The meaning behind it is so deep and it's good that it got good recognition for it. Have no doubt we'll see similar experiences in the ps4 and I truly can't wait. That and The Last of Us were master pieces of this generation.
Back-to-Back  +   530d ago
I don't understand how he can say their is a tie between Demons Souls and Dark Souls. In my opinion Demons Souls is the far superior game with much better bosses and environments. Dark Souls did have a much better final boss. I kinda like the idea of Dark Souls doing the connect worlds but there was something special about the nexus. It made you feel like you were trapped in heaven or hell(based off rage lol).
Azzanation  +   530d ago
Why wouldn't he like The Last Of Us. Its his company's game. Be weird if he said he didn't like it.
TomahawkX  +   530d ago
Demon Souls 2 confirmed!
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   530d ago
Hope so
Serjikal_Strike  +   530d ago
Nice list
It's hard for me to make a top 10,so many great games this generation
Conzul  +   530d ago
1. The Last of Us
2. inFamous (all of them, really)
3. Journey
4. Uncharted 2
5. Dead Space 2 (odd I know :P)
6. Sins of a Solar Empire
7. Supreme Commander FA
8. Resistance 3
9. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
10. Bioshock

Yeah I hear you. When you love so many games, populating a top-ten list feels almost sinful.

Edit: It's a shame that I have to always go to PC for my RTS fix.
This new gen better rectify

No Mass Effect?
Conzul  +   529d ago
I have never played any of the Mass Effect games. Idk.
irepbtown  +   529d ago
Interesting list,

My top 10 in NO particular order; Journey, The Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid 4, GTA V, Infamous (only the first), Uncharted 2, Call of Duty 4 (revolutionary, my favourite FPS), God of War 3, Killzone 2, Bad Company (first).

I missed out LBP, Mass Effect, Gran Turismo 5, Batman Origins (which I loved) and more. But on another day they'd probably be in the top 10. There's too many to choose from. This (last?) gen was truly amazing.
Back-to-Back  +   530d ago
Leaving off Fallout 3 is almost criminal.

The one franchise I always have difficulty saying which game is the best is the Ass Creed series. Not sure whether 2 or brotherhood is my favorite.
adventureghost124  +   530d ago
Shu is just so awesome in so many ways. He really understands the emotion and art that is put into a game.

I totally relate to that bro, not everyone can see it like that, but Journey is a very emotional game from the moment you start all the way to your last climb, one of a kind
ShowGun901  +   530d ago

NarooN  +   530d ago
I remember when Shu said he almost threw his controller into the TV when he was playing a prototype/beta version of the game, haha.
GamersRulz  +   530d ago
Damn, I almost cried when I heard Shu crying :(

Journey will does the "games are not art" argument to bed. Shuhei came across so knowledgable & candid. Great stuff.
SkippyPaccino  +   530d ago
Every top ten should include the last of us... Top ten games this year, top ten games this generation, top ten games of all time, top ten people I would bone... The last one probably doesn't fit but you get my point.
ShaunCameron  +   530d ago
In no particular order.... (Top 5 though)

God Of War III
Metal Gear Solid 4
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools Of Destruction
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
The Last Of Us

Honorable mention:
Vanfernal  +   530d ago
Good to see the D.Souls series up there. My favorite games of last gen. Challenging, rewarding and no other game plays like them. In a generation dominated by shooters it was a much needed breath of fresh air.
esemce  +   530d ago
Shadow of the colossus
Uncharted 2/ TLOU
Resident Evil 4
Farcry 3
Assassins creed 2
Red Dead Redemption

hope you all listened to the episode/interviews. says something about a team of creatives when their head is this connected to himself, his heart, his soul. that was a special anecdote. perhaps more than any sizzle reel or trailer, this vulnerable moment has made me so excited about what sony worldwide studios will be creating over the next several years...
Back-to-Back  +   530d ago
My top 10

The Last of Us
Demons Souls

Who wouldn't get choked up by mentioning Journey? That ending! It choked me up a bit.
SoulSercher620  +   530d ago
My top 10 in no real order

1. The Last of Us
2. Uncharted 2 Among Thieves
3. Metal Gear Solid 4
4. God of War III

6. Valkyria Chronicles
7. Batman Arkham City

9. Infamous 2
10. Assassin's Creed II
qzp  +   530d ago
The fact that he said COD4 and not the other shitty cash cow games that cod4 spawned from its success proves he gets it. I would buy a ps4 just for that. love this dude
Underworld  +   530d ago
Both great lists. It's hard to make a list but The Last of Us and Uncharted 2 are definitely my 1 and 2 though, and Demons Souls, Dark Souls, the Tomb Raider reboot and Heavy Rain would be in there too.

That was epic. To see the head of PlayStation so emotionally ingrained with the games they produce, only shows the path they are on and how much they care about gaming.
badboy776  +   530d ago
We all know Dang well he aint play none of those games.
OhhWerd  +   529d ago
Who cares?
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   529d ago
My top 10

No order

Last of us
Killzone 2
Uncharted 2

Screw the chuggy, bugged, broken and boring MP of GTA 5.

2)The Last of Us
3)Uncharted 2
5)The Orange Box
