Top Five Killer Apps for Playstation 3

Being the most expensive system on the market, the Playstation 3 needs as many killer apps as possible. Fortunately, it has plenty of those already. Here are the top five video games that showcases the best of what the Playstation 3 has to offer. (Flower, Killzone 2, Killzone 2 DLC Steel & Titanium, Killzone 3, LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, Metal Gear, Metal Gear Online, Metal Gear Online SCENE, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune)

I'm glad my game is in that list although it should have been placed @#1. My game has sold very well, despite the $2,000,000,000,000 offer from Microsoft and a lot of pressure from Konami, I didn't allow myself to port this game to Xbox 360 as the dumbed down version would have gotten a possible average Metacritic of 25-35. Also, I doubted that the people who paid actual money for an Xbox could understand such an intricate and complex story. I wanted a sophisticated, educated and game-literate audience to appreciate the beauty of this installation of the Metal Gear Solid saga.

HAHAHA nice comment. Bubbles :D.
Snatcher  +   2145d ago
Very funny. Great list, between. But I would have replaced Flower with either Heavenly Sword, WarHawk or Ratchet and clank: TOD.
The_Beast  +   2145d ago
You probibly lost the xbots at
krakdol  +   2145d ago
@Snatcher : replace Flower by Valkyria Chronicles, best JRPG this gen according to reviews and in my opinion too. Great story, characters and art direction, VC is a gem which needs to sell more. Go buy it.
xabmol  +   2145d ago
Knock out Flower and replace it with R&C:ToD and it would be one of best lists I've seen here in a while.

Not that Flower was bad, but next to R&C...

R+C was really that good?
All I played was the demo but it seemed like more of a kiddie game - at least LBP has crossover appeal.

I actually like the fact that flower is on this list, that game is easily one of the better network games to come out in a while for XBL or PSN.

I wish they could make a full fledged game that uses the sixaxis as well as flower. Whenever I show one of my friends all my PS3 games they always get stuck on that one.

EDIT: XAMBOL - just because I replied to your comment doesn't mean I hit 'disagree'

Yes ratchet and clank is THAT good. Do urself a favor man. Play that game. So you'll be ready for the next one. God I love that game.
xabmol  +   2145d ago
@Tony Scarboni
"seemed like more of a kiddie game"

This is why so many people missed out on the PS2 R&C games, and the greatness of Patapon and Loco Roco.

"I wish they could make a full fledged game that uses the sixaxis as well as flower."

They actually made a game like that a while ago, but it was bashed relentlessly in the reviews for having sixaxis only flight controls. *cough*Lair*cough*

"XAMBOL - just because I replied to your comment doesn't mean I hit 'disagree'"

Uh... OK? Same to you?
Freak of Nature  +   2145d ago
I agree xabmol....

My list....

3.MGS 4

IcarusOne  +   2145d ago
screw R&C
It's fun in a childish, platformer sort of way, but it's certainly no revolution of gaming. Flower on the hand, totally deserves to be on that list.

But LBP? Please.

And could this guy sound like less of a noob? "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots pushed the Playstation 3’s audio capabilities with crystal clear sound effects, top notch voice acting and a cinematic soundtrack." This feels like grasping at straws. All the elements crammed into that game, and all you can say is something horrifically generic about the crystal clear sound effects and great voice acting?
Weren't those included in MGS2 and MGS3? Weren't those aspects of PS2 games?

Find the next level.

the only killer that the xbox has is
a killer defect.. RRoD + E74 = 101% failure rate.

yeah, i have all five.. i would substitute valkyria chronicles for flower, though.. and i would add a racer there somehow.. gt5p, wipeout, MS2:PR, or ridge racer even..

Killzone 2 is awesome. I don't know what you are talking about.
The_Beast  +   2145d ago
retarded xbot, its dont cry you dont have a ps3
SpaceSquirrel  +   2145d ago
Future Killer Apps
God of War III and Gran Turismo 5 will be on that list in the future.
SmokingMonkey  +   2145d ago
..trust me
somekindofmike  +   2145d ago
I've yet to see anything about MAG which blows me away, not that I'm writing it off. I'm in the wait and see section and will happily eat my own words when it's released if I'm wrong.

God of War 3 & espically Gran Turismo 5 will be must buys for me!
Defectiv3_Detectiv3  +   2145d ago
Its way too early for M.A.G.
That game could easily fall into Resistance territory - decent but not great.

But GOW3 and GT5 are pretty much shoe-ins. Then again, you have to think about the new David Jaffe project(twisted metal?), the new team ICO project, and the new quantic dreams game heavy rain. Those all have major potential.

One game I thought should have been on this list was MGS5. It was refreshing to play a game that actually had an interesting story. I felt that story elevated other parts of the game that would have normally been average.
xabmol  +   2145d ago
"One game I thought should have been on this list was MGS5."
Ah, yes good ol' MGS5. =] I agree that game should have been on this list. =} It was really awesome how they... xD I can't do it. I just can't keep a straight face. lol xP
raztad  +   2145d ago
WTH? Why everybody is overlooking Infamous? Im sure inFAMOUS will be a KILLER game.
Unicron  +   2145d ago
Missing RCF:Tools of Destruction in there! Great game.
Zeus Lee  +   2145d ago
"Too bad none of them sold well. "
Your definition of 'well' must be very different than mine.

Killzone 2=Confirmed to have sold over 1 Million copies in less than 2 months of release.

Flower=Nobody including you knows how many times it was downloaded.

MGS4=Confirmed to have crossed the 4 Million mark by Konami.

Uncharted=Confirmed to have crossed the 2 Million mark.

LittleBigPlanet:Confirmed to have crossed the 2 Million mark based on the amount of unique users.

name a game thats better than it graphically and gameplay wise i dare you 360isthe...
Foxgod  +   2145d ago
about every game in the top 20 of the 360.
Traveler  +   2145d ago
The exlusives on the 360 haven't really impressed me.

I love Mass Effect, Fable 2 and Gears of War, and Halo 3 isn't bad, but other than that everything else that I felt was worth buying is multiplatform. PS3 does much better in terms of exclusives, in my opinion.
Lfmesquite  +   2145d ago
The list had no credibility
When they put Flower as a killer app.
DrWan  +   2145d ago
I would add Valkrie Chronicles
to that list.
raztad  +   2145d ago
VC needs to be there.

My personal list so far (Im still playing R&C and VC and I need to get LBP and Uncharted)

1. MGS4
2. VC
3. KZ2
4. R&C
coolclimate0  +   2145d ago
this guy is on f*cking crack....
killzone2 DESTROYS uncharted in terms of graphics
list as follows

little big planet
ratchet and clank
resistance (the first one)

killzone2 takes number 1 slot period!
xabmol  +   2145d ago
Well, Dude...
Graphics aren't everything.
Traveler  +   2145d ago
Well, I love Killzone 2 and Uncharted and I don't really agree that Killzone 2 blows away Uncharted. I mean, KZ2 definitely looks better in some ways, but there are things about Uncharted that look better than any other game that I have seen. All in all I think they are pretty close and I would say they are probably the two best looking games out there at the moment.
somekindofmike  +   2145d ago
I think Killzone 2 looks more technically impressive, but for me the art style of uncharted is far prettier to look at.

The fact is they are both beautiful games, but one has glorious colour schemes and lush environments while the other is set in a gritty war environment which just is not as pretty.
Groo  +   2145d ago
Killzone 2 Multiplayer is like being hooked on crack
ThaGeNeCySt  +   2145d ago
in my opinion here's my top 5 killer apps

1. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
2. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriot
3. Ratchet & Clank: FToD
4. Little Big Planet
5. Killzone 2
PistolPumptMonk  +   2145d ago
Good list man. PS3's library is so solid.
The Dude  +   2145d ago
Good list man the ps3 is so fanboy solid and in last place this gen.
PistolPumptMonk  +   2145d ago
@The Dude
Shouldn't you be spankin' it to sales numbers?
The Dude  +   2145d ago

No just spankin you fangirls on the fact sony is awful this gen and you fanboys eat it up and make excuses for sony everyday this gen. ps3 last place this gen I guess sales numbers do matter spank spank.

PistolPumptMonk  +   2145d ago
Could you please, in your incredibly irrational and misplaced wisdom, explain to the crowd why the PS3 is so lame this generation? Try to avoid the words sales, numbers, and last place.

You see, I (and every other real gamer) don't care about that kind of thing because it doesn't turn me on. I would rather play good games.

I apologize if it is impossible for you to describe how much the PS3 sucks without using the previously mentioned words. I know they are your happy words. Try not to get too excited and please, keep it in your pants.
xabmol  +   2145d ago
You are being very un-Dude right now.

In fact every post of yours I see is extremely un-Dude. Why don't you reexamine yourself and try to be a little more "Dude", Dude.
Foxgod  +   2145d ago
Damn, it must have been sweat, blood and tears for them to create a top 5 for the ps3.
Theres hardly 5 good games for it out there.
Traveler  +   2145d ago
You're full of it. I have both consoles and even though the PS3 has been out for less time I have ended up buying more exclusives for the PS3 than the 360. They're both good consoles though. The PS3 just has better exclusives.
Foxgod  +   2145d ago
Yeah i am sorry for being arrogant, but i own such an awesome console (360), thats its hard to remain with both feet on the ground in ps3 discussions.

Its like Being Brad pit, and going to an ugly people conference.

redsquad  +   2145d ago
Nothing to do with how "killer" they are, but based purely on the enjoyment I derived from them:

1 UNCHARTED (one of my favourites, on any platform, of all time!)
2 MGS4
3 KZ2

I know. Uncharted is one of my favorite games of all time. That game is very special.
callahan09  +   2145d ago
My 5 favorite PS3 games to actually play (this isn't about which games are the best, it's about which games I most enjoy):

5. Flower
4. Folklore
3. Metal Gear Solid 4
2. Warhawk
1. The Eye of Judgment
xabmol  +   2145d ago
I'm going to admit I am a bit shocked with that one.

How's the online support keeping up? Are there alot of people still playing? You've made me a little more curious about this.
callahan09  +   2145d ago
Oh, there's a fantastic online community for the game. If you're still interested in the game, check out eojmanager.com

There's a big community of us there. There's regular tournaments, unranked mondays, we use the forums and so forth to set up matches whenever we're up for a game. There's threads for every single card where we'll discuss practical applications and uses for the cards, there's a trading network there and you can trade for or buy whatever cards you need, get advice on building decks, etc. It's a great community.
xabmol  +   2145d ago
I'm going to see if I can't find me a deck, mat, and PSeye stand somewhere. I just hope I don't have to buy the whole starter kit because I already have a PSeye.
spectyre  +   2145d ago
Good list.
I don't know if I could pick a top 5. I love all the games on the list but it needs Valkyria Chronicles, R&C, Heavenley Sword, MLB 09, Warhawk, Motorstorm PR. Another month and inFAMOUS should be on the list. Top 5 just doesn't do the PS3 justice.

Edit @above

I forgot about EoJ and Folklore. Two more damn fine games. That's not even counting the great PSN games.

swap flower for Ratchet and Clank ToD and thats my top 5 favourite games.
krakdol  +   2145d ago
Great list, but flower is overrated.

Replace Flower by Valkyria Chronicles and you've got a winner (great JRPG, best JRPG this gen in fact... reviews are right this time)

Edit : @chuck : yeah, or ratchet TOD, one of those two.
