This is a list of awesome PS3 games from the perspective of an Xbox 360 gamer.
If I was a 360 only gamer I'd want to play it too. Fortunately though I'm not. UC2 was by far one of my favorite games EVER and I've been gaming since the mid 80's.
Wasn't expecting one of those. You'll know what I mean when you see it, haha. The others, however, are all solid choices. I've played all of them and they are excellent titles.
I haven't yet played heavy Rain. inFamous 2, btw, is one of my all time favorites and drastically underrated. Can't wait to play the vampire expansion in a few days...just in time for Halloween!
If he wants to play them so much, why don't you buy a ps3?
Iroquois...that is a great point. People shouldn't limit themselves to a certain platform - funds permitting of course. There is just too much awesome gaming out there to miss out on.
'If I was a 360 only gamer I'd want to play it too. Fortunately though I'm not'
Unfortunately though you show up in every 360 article. Wonder why that is..kidding we all know why.
Up until the Slim dropped a couple of years ago I was a 360 and Wii gamer exclusively. I own 100+ 360 games and a pretty good clip of Wii games.
In the last two year I bought pretty much all of the big PS3 exclusive franchises.
From that list I'd throw Haze in the trash..
As a year one 360 owner, up until purchasing PS3, the on game I really wanted and felt was the biggest Sony exclusive was Metal Gear Solid.
After owning and playing all of the major exclusives, I'd say that Naughty Dog's Uncharted series is the top franchise this gen on the PS3.
Heavy Rain was a great game, but I wouldnt place it above God of War 3, Demons' Souls, or GTA 5 or Killzone 2 in regards to must-buy sony exclusives.
Both consoles have great franchise..IMO it's simply been amazing to own all 3 consoles this gen. Too many great experiences to count.
You listed Haze under your column entitled "ps3 hate". Once you get to 2011 in your time machine, I suggest you check out some of the games that have come out in the recent timeframe.
'You listed Haze under your column entitled "ps3 hate"'
Read again and I quote..
From THAT list I'd throw Haze in the trash..
Which is coming from the perspective of the rest of the exclusives that COULD have made that list.
My opinion..still stands
I have both, but if I was only on the 360, Uncharted without a doubt. Resistance never did it for me. I did really like Killzone 2 as well, but UC2 is king.
The only PS3 exclusives that I would want to ply if I got a PS3 are UC and GOW series. None of those others interest me.
Thankfully, u dont have one. OT: I dont have any interest at all for any 360/wii games. In my opinion, all 360 games are overated. PS3 and PC are all gamers need.
I finally came around to purchasing Haze, since I was enthralled by the "not-too-distant-future aspect" of the game. The only thing that stands out-for worse-is how is the abysmal dialouge. "Like taking candy from a crippled baby"? Who the hell would write that?
The rest of the list is basically true for anyone who hasn't purchased a PS3 yet.
I agree with every title on this list, I really want to play Heavy Rain, but I just can't justify purchasing a PS3 for just one title.
I was telling a buddy at work today who is all about his 360 only, i was telling him about the uncharted series. I was telling him if you bought a ps3 you have to play uncharted, gow, infamous, & Heavy Rain. KZ & Resistance are good but not the games you say if you are only gonig to play one game on the ps3 i wouldnt say KZ or Resistance. Also never touched Haze.
Just tell him to quit being a freaking dork, and not limiting himself by what corporate names are on the stupid hunk of plastic he owns. Both steal your money, both are bloodsucking piles of shit, play the god damned games. That's really the only way to not be a complete douche bag of a dong pile.
Haze. God, why torture yourself. Timeshift was better than Haze and that's saying something as it was awful as well.
Take a skip on Payday, Haze and Killzone and add God of War collection + 3, Ico/SoTC collection and MGS4 to that list.
If i was a 360 only player, I would buy a ps3.
I'd buy a gaming pc as well. But that's probably because I like to play every game available.
If you want to play PS3 exclusives, buy a PS3, the same goes for the 360....quite a few gamers own both or all 3 consoles....the only problem is finding the time to play all these great titles lol
If I have only a 360 I could make a list "TOP 20 PS3 MUST-PLAY exclusives" for fun, but I am a PS3 only owner and I cant even think 5 games to make a "TOP 5 360 MUST-PLAY exclusives" the one and only 360 game I can say for sure I want to play is "Lost Odyssey" and that's because JRPG this generation is pure crap and all have action battle system while this game created by the person who make my all time favorite game FFVII Hironobu Sagakuchi and it's maybe the only turn based traditional JRPG we see for the past 5 years, and it sad me deeply he decide to waste a game like this on a console with a fan base that most of the ppl dont even care for a game of this kind, if that was on PS3 the sales would be at least double in fact I dare to say more than triple because there wasn't many quality JRPG this generation no chance the fans pass a gem of this caliber and I say all that w/o playing it ever just from watching trailers and read reviews.
seriously, UC2 and KZ series are very overrated. to me the best game on ps3 was/still MGS4...the best game on 360 is Lost Odyssey to date no RPG on ps3 comes near it!
Uncharted is overrated in your opinion. In the real world it's an incredible series that keeps improving due to the mastery of Naughty Dog. I could understand if you personally did not like them but saying they are overrated is silly. It in itself is a term that should be stamped out as it's virtually meaningless.
No, it's overrated. It's still a very awesome game but yea, overrated.
I love Killzone, love the multiplayer, love the level and enviroment design, love the gameplay, love the enemy design, but the characters and story is meh.
List needs more WarHawk
I woudln't touch Haze with a 50 ft pole I found it really bad. Although I wouldn't mind trying out a version of Little Big Planet for the Kinnect if that ever happened. But games I want to see from Xbox to my PS3 are Gears of War sieres and Left 4 Dead I want to see how well those games will run on my PS3.
Left 4 Dead will be coming to the the PS3 from what EA said!
I'm a 360 gamer......................... .............................. . .............................. ............................... .........................but I also have a ps3 and all the best exclusives...omg!!! that means this article is totally not for me!
Here is my list starhawk im done.
