Game Informer: When the PlayStation 3 launched in November of 2006, some gamers wondered whether Sony's system would be able to catch up to the Xbox 360's one-year head start. However, even at a higher price point, the PS3 gained traction. Years later, it even overtook the 360 in worldwide sales. Of course, a console is nothing without great games, and the PlayStation 3's success can be attributed to a healthy portfolio of multiplatform hits alongside a broad selection of fun and innovative exclusives. We sorted through the entire library and picked the top 25 games on the PS3.
We've already covered the top 25 Wii games and the top 25 Xbox 360 games. As with our 360 list, we elected to choose only one game from a series for the PS3. Not filling up the list with Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty titles leaves more room to recognize other outstanding franchises and standalone games. Even then, the competition was fierce, and cutting the list down to only 25 entries caused plenty of arguments in the Game Informer office.
You'll probably disagree with some of our choices, too. But that's all part of the fun.
