Most Gorgeous PS3 exclusives that everyone should play

Gamersmint: We all know what the PS3 is capable of, but the following games show what the hardware can really do. Sony didn’t take a 250$ loss on the initial PS3s for nothing you know.It wasn’t till mid-2008 that the PS3s potential was shown to the world.

Let’s indulge in some visual bliss below - (PS3, Sony)

Don't become a fanboy, we don't need anymore, Real Gamers play all games, no matter what platform, just as long as it is fun.

Chubear  +   1595d ago | Well said
yeah funny how you didn't see people like you back in 2006-2008 when the PS3 and it's games were being crucified. Funny how you didn't see all this higher than thou attitude back theen. Instead it was vile insults and bannings if you dare dream of commenting even on PS3 forums about exclusives you enjoy

Now the 360 is getting pistol whipped with exclusives and "teh sales" and all of a sudden everyone's a "real gamer" and crying all the time about PS3 gamers that enjoy PS3 exclusives more often than multiplat games.

I remember very well and will never forget the crap the PS3 fanbase went through for years and are still somewhat going through.

If it were up to these "real gamers" we have had no StarHawk, no Motorstorm2&3, no UC2, no KZ2&3, no MGS4, no infamous, no WKC2, no Demon Souls, no MAG, no Heavy Rain. You all killed sequels for new IPs like Heavenly Sword and Lair for gamers that loved these games but now you vomit your "be a gamer not a hater" stupid comments all over the place now. Gee, how convenient.

So if you're going to cry that people would rather buy and support 1st party exclusives over multiplats then you're just going to have to keep on crying then.

PS3 games are indeed visual and gameplay bliss. Enjoy and STFU already about not enough foliage in GT5 or too much exploding barrels in KZ2 or, Uncharted being "just Dude Raider lolz" or too much variety in R&C or all the other insane BS PS3 exclusives have to fight through on a routine basis.

REAL GAMERS buy the best hardware for the best games and that is the PS3 end of story you, may think this is being a fanboy but it is not, show me a blu ray player in the competions consoles or 3D games or 3D movies or even a hard drive built in as standard in ALL consoles.

let the disagrees begin oh and btw this is my opinion

@ VersusEM
So your saying I'm a fanboy and not a real gamer because I don't have a Wii or 360? GTFO. In all seriousness, I don't need a Wii or 360 because I have enough trouble trying to keep up with all the games on PS3.

ha, yeah you guys are taking it wayyyyyyy too serious ally, first off, as long as your having fun it doesn't matter if it is Killzone or Halo. Second off, I do have a PS3 and is my favorite console this gen. But also I have a X-Box 360, maybe not as much games but at least I have fun, I mean that is the main reason why I play video games, FOR FUN!!!!!!!!

Haha, good one

yeah, first it was it didn't have any games and about graphics...then sales...then in-game XMB, then HOME avatars, then game installs that didn't have any benefit,

(not saying you VersusEM were one of them)

Today? I guess is all about party chat...or being a real gamer LOL

PS3 owners have been real gamers from the beginning, they got a PS store that was not more than a browser, they found their way into online gaming when every game had different ways to take you online and message each other and only within the game

Those are real gamers, only an idiot would buy the most expensive console (600 EURO) to play Harry Potter and have "fun", we purchased a PS3 because we are REAL gamers and want to play the best games out there.

Why didn't the great Yamauchi stick with Feeder for GT5? Comfort in Sound would have been perfect... Or Just a Day, again!
Although not for GT5, some real rock bands? try Led Zeppelin, The Who, AC/DC, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cream, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Foo Fighters, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Guns n' Roses (with slash), Metallica, Pink Floyd, Nickelback, Van Halen, Oasis, RHCP, Queen... There's so many more that are so much better than slayer...
Arnagrim  +   1594d ago
More like.
Ps3 rocks like Dream Theater while the 360 rocks like Bullet for My Valentine. One is for those who appreciate technicality (Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5) and experimental projects (Heavy Rain, Flower, etc) while the other is for drones who eat up whatever everyone else is currently doing (Rotations between Halo, Call of Duty and Madden).

you got that right
cranium  +   1594d ago
Killzone 2 came out February of 2009, not 2008. But yeah I agree that MGS4 deserves it's spot on the list especially considering how it came out before all the other games on that list.

Drop MGS4?
bananlol  +   1594d ago
Drop resistance 2 eh? And here i was glad that one "graphics" list finally mentioned it. When i first bought it i thought the grapics were simply marvelous. Might be a little bias though, since it was the first game i ever played on a hd projector that didnt have lousy contrast ratio.
MazzingerZ  +   1594d ago
Had a X360 since launch and got my PS3 some months after it released 2007 (PAL), Folklore and Heavenly Sword were the first games I played and they were nothing like what I had played on the X360 so far.

Folklore had loading times problems but otherwise an awesome game. Heavenly Sword was a fantastic action and cinematic experience, it showed what PS3 could do, graphically was outstanding, still today blows away many games.

People said HS was short...well for me was a game with no backtracking, constant action, variation all the time, great story and voice acting, the game is a GEM.

Then came Uncharted and R&C both games showed the PS3 muscles and what it was coming.

PS3 doesn't give me a break, releases quality games all the time.
BillOreilly  +   1594d ago
I feel the same for my 360. There are too many games lol.
Full game list. 360 wins. Call me when the ps3 has a jrpg better than lost odyssey/vesperia. Wrpgs better than Fable 2/3, mass effect, the dragon knight saga, risen, fps better than halos, tps better than gears. We have the best games released in EVERY catagory this gen. We have more games period. Better online, better multiplats. Call me when ps3 does indy games as well as xbl games, when ps3 does cross game chat, party chat. DIDNT THINK SO. You have no argument. But teh blu....but teh cell...uncharte.....nope.

now we have better multiplatform titles,...lmao

Atleast we have the option to play the game unlike you guys that cannot get any of the games from sony and with bungie and soon epic gone i would be pretty scared...
GrandTheftZamboni  +   1595d ago
Even those comparisons for multiplats that favour 360 would look different if they would lower the brightness and increase the contrast on PS3 version. Even the old TVs have that.
Redlogic  +   1595d ago
Way to be sour. "Whatever dude we get to play the best mulitplats"...maybe so, but they are only better by a small "graphical" margin. Otherwise, ps3 and xbox360 games are the same by most standards. you fail.

Yes, Gran Turismo 5
will surpass everything released this gen as far as visuals are concerned.

NewsForMe  +   1595d ago
On a console sure, though it still isn't even 1080P. If you're really that into graphics graphics do yourself a favor and get a decent PC. If not just play games and stop gawking at visuals, the least important part of a game by far.

With the potential of the ps3, people demanding games with great graphic are normal.
PC is graphically strongest, true. But we're not only into visual; story and gameplay is important too, and all of that are top notch for many exclusive ps3 titles i.e: UC 2 and MSG4.
Ps: and pls sir check your fact right, GT5 will run 60fps in 1080p.

why is resistance 2 on the list.... its really not that good graphics.. Even halo reach beats it in the graphics department.

This is my list

Uncharted 2 > God of war 3> Kz2 >heavy rain.
Hoje0308  +   1595d ago
GOW3, UC2, KZ2.
GT5, KZ3, inFamous 2 and the inevitable UC3 will all be taking their rightful places on that list soon enough. With all the great exclusives and multiplats coming out next year, 2011 is going to be Year of the Gamer.

Although the graphics looked cartoony, i liked them.

Resistance 3 should improve a lot in the graphics department.

gamerdude132  +   1595d ago
This list shows games with great gameplay, but the thing that bother me is that the guy who posted this was some kind of graphics-whore. "Look at the screens above and see why the game's so good". Sorry, but that kinda rubs me the wrong way.

The only game I disagree on this list that has fantastic gameplay is God of War 3. The entire trilogy just seemed... boring to me, but that's just my opinion. I'm happy everyone else likes it but I've never been a big fan of that kind of slasher gameplay.

Ahasverus  +   1594d ago
No, at all, it's fine with having more varied gameplay than God of War. IF you played the game, you would now what we're talking about but you are too busy playing that 6 hours button masher and losing that 23hrs adventure epic, fine for you then ;)

Both games are different enough to like one, other, or both, I love both but they are different beasts, If you judge Cv by the trailers of the demo, YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG!

I just love my console that brings me great games and free online multiplayer. Not to mention i dig the hell out of the controller. And man dont i love streaming movies to it from my PC (tversity rocks) I am going to pick up the Sly Collection and maybe GT5 (have it preorderd game gives me a week to pick it up gonna read reviews first though) And next year will be an awesome year for PS3 owners as there will be plenty of exclusives (for sure Killzone 2, Infamous 2, Resistance 3, Ico collection, Little Big Planet 2 and maybe Last Guardian)

I would like to know what happened to agent though it sort of vanished. Does anyone know anything about agent?
gypsygib  +   1595d ago
To truly appreciate PS3 exclusives (with the exception of MGS4) you have to see them in motion - it's the animation and post-processing that makes them look quasi-CG like.
nevin1  +   1595d ago
God Of War 3
From a technical standpoint, I guess uncharted 2 wins but God Of War looks more eye candy to me. I should note I only played the demo/beta of Uncharted 2.

MGS4 looks outdated compared to today's PS3 exclusive.

Look forward to Kojima and Company to make MGS5 a technical beast. Remember, MGS4 production was way before the PS3 release.

Also Motorstorm 2 should be on that list.

When Heavy Rain got it right...
man, the game was unbeatable graphically. It could be inconsistent, but it looked so good at times that the immersion factor would go through the roof. Entering the seedy little motel in the demo and just watching Scott Shelby standing near the door while hearing the pitter-patter of rain outside; that's how you create a perfect noir-esque atmosphere. That's why I'm so psyched for L.A. Noire.

Uncharted 2 goes without saying. The mo-cap is pretty darn convincing and only the glazy eyes of some characters prove distracting. The amount of detail in the environments is what gets me though.

Flower deserves a mention somewhere. It's hasn't got half the budget of any of those games in the article, yet it still manages to impress. Again, it's the attention to detail; seeing every seperate blade of grass bob and weave about in the same direction is impressive, yet can go by unnoticed the entire playthrough. Easily one of the most gorgeous looking games around.

Great point. The PS3's era began after Uncharted while MGS4 merely only looks good in the cut scenes. This article is a total fail by the way. There should only be three games worth mentioning when it comes to PS3 graphics.

Uncharted 2, Killzone 2, and God of War 3. The end.

There is nothing wrong gaming on the ps3, it has great games

Its just the crazy way you die hard fans just over hype everything it does and then saying its the death of the xbox is near!
you can tell there is more ps3 fanboys on n4g by the disagrees .

Then you have this ridiculous theroy that every one is against the ps3 ! and maybe I came here after all those xbox fanboys caused you so much pain (still, you should be big enough to ignore it) but for the most part on here I see extreme ps3 fanboys engulf xbox threads and wanting the death of the 360 !! why? how would that benifit you? Apart from saying we are now second :/
Pointless .

P.S I own 2 ps3's and have playerd most of its exclusives

Any sensible replies would be welcome
rezzah  +   1594d ago
Is this sensible? =p
The very same thing you say for PS3 fanboys, the 360 fanboys do. Dont look at the 360 fanboys as innocent, If you paid attention, its not only PS3 fanboys who bash 360 articles. Just like the extreme ps3 fb, extreme 360 FB are 70% likely to do their best in being the first post on a PS3 article so they can make the first comment say something negative about the PS3.

Besides, Its not about being big enough to ignore it when they do the same thing. Maybe on a smaller scale but thats just because the ps3 fan base (not fanboys) population is bigger on N4G.

All in all its just bs that goes back and forth, no matter what you say you cant stop it. For someone like you who does not care (or is "big" enough), just ignore any FB comments and read other comments. Yea that includes going through long arguments before you finally reach a sensible comment. But then how would you know if that person isnt trying to look like a non fanboy when they could be one of the biggest fbs?

You have a good veiw, but its just pointless.
