Mine would be:

3)Twisted Metal (Sure it isn't out yet but come on- its going to be amazing).
miyamoto  +   1543d ago
This is Cliffy B's way of preparing his way for the mainstream PS3 game development after Bulletstorm.

Can't wait for Epic Games' Third Person Shooter on PS3.
SilentNegotiator  +   1543d ago
Hopefully it's more Gears of War and a whole lot less Bulletstorm.

At least Gears of War doesn't pretend to be ironic and has great gameplay.

^agreed, any gears game completely crushes bulletstorm.
WrAiTh Sp3cTr3  +   1543d ago
Folklore gets no love, tis a shame really...
STONEY4  +   1543d ago
Hopefully it's more Unreal style. UT2004 and UT3 are IMO still my personal favorite games to come from Epic Games. It's been waayy too long since the last one.

I've been contemplating picking up an Xbox 360 solely for Gears of War, as I'm a huge TPS fan and all my friends talk it up. I hope it follows that line when he creates a TPS for the PS3.
morganfell  +   1543d ago
Other than Cliffy, only Ken Levine was smart enough to understand that PS3 Exclusives are what should be celebrated on the consoles Birthday.
ApplEaglElephant  +   1543d ago
EPIC's contract with MS is up
So Gears 4 will be on PS3 unless ofc MS buys Gears 4 exclusivity.

But way MS has been dropping core exclusives, i kinda doubt it.
showtimefolks  +   1543d ago
Uncharted series
Mgs 4 and hd collection
Killzone 2
Resistance 1 and resistance 3. 3rd has a great single player story. 2nd has great 8 player co-op

Ico/sotc collection
Ratchet tools of destruction and crack in time. All 4 one is a crappy game in my opinion it just doesn't have the special touch of past ratchet games

Sly hd collection
God of war 3
Heavy rain

God of war hd collection both hd collections

So if you are new to ps3 just buy most of the exclusives
JoySticksFTW  +   1542d ago
Add Demon's Souls to that list.

Better than Dark Souls in my humble opinion

No game this generation took me like Demon's Souls. I delayed playing Uncharted 2 at the time, because I couldn't put DS down.

It's that good.
Feckles  +   1543d ago
1) Uncharted 1
2) Uncharted 2
3) Uncharted 3
ZippyZapper  +   1543d ago
So... I take it you like Uncharted?

egidem  +   1543d ago
When it comes to PS3 exclusives, there are just too man. Making only a top 3 lists would mean making sacrifices for other good games...I can't do that to them!
Fat Bastard  +   1543d ago

So under the same logic, could you not find the 3 best basketball teams in the NBA? Or the 3 best football teams in the NFL?
Blackdeath_663  +   1543d ago
i happen to disaggames are amzing and no doubt the best
ps3 exclusives but what i dont want to happen is for the franchies to be overused and abused like prince of persia wich was great until they made the fourth and fifth one.
jdfoster  +   1543d ago
TBH I loved the 4th one (disappointed by boss battles but loved the story and art direction) but HATED the 5th one! What where they thinking? AWFUL! Terrible game! I was so disappointed with that game! Story was very weak, boss fights where horrid! Puzzles where the worst in the series etc etc
NeoBasch  +   1543d ago
lol I wouldn't want to rank them. I love them all too much... So, I'll cheat:

1) The Uncharted Trilogy
2) God of War III
3) Heavy Rain
4) inFamous 2 *
5) ... **

* sadly, not the original; great story but too many other problems.

** toss up between Heavenly Sword and Resistance: Fall of Man

with multiplats...

1) The Uncharted Trilogy
2) God of War III
3) Batman: Arkham Asylum
4) Heavy Rain
5) Dead Space

Haven't played Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Catherine, Skyrim, or Yakuza 3 or 4.

That is why Metal Gear Solid 4 is not on your list.
DonaldBeck  +   1542d ago
WHAT??!! you neeed to play metal gear solid 4 now! its amazing!
Hudahudahuda  +   1543d ago
God of war 3 is still my favorite PS3 exclusive after all the games I played.
fastrez  +   1543d ago
Cheers Cliff, I would never have known what games to play had you not told me, my life is so much better now.
Berserk  +   1543d ago

skyward  +   1543d ago
Heavy Rain - no thanks.

- Uncharted 3
- LBP2
- God Of War 3
Hellsvacancy  +   1543d ago
Heavy Rain was awesome whats a matter with you

Imagination is what people lack, not me
SilentNegotiator  +   1543d ago
I think LBP and inFamous are bigger 'must play' ps3 series than HR.
Dee_91  +   1543d ago
Its all personal preference but man Heavy Rain left a lasting impression on me the most out of the games you mentioned.
my list would be
Yakuza 1-4
I only played 3&4 but they show you what you missed from 1,2,3 on 4.So you can just get 4.
Heavy Rain.
First of its kind very original with a great story.If it was a movie it would probably be grammy nominated.
Heavenly Sword
I dont know if I like it so much because it was one of the first Games I played on PS3 with amazing graphics or if it was just an great game overall. The story from what I remember was funny yet serious. another very original game

the first time I saw video of this game I was like WHAT .. THE F%*K.But when I played it.. I was blown away.Then I discovered the online HOLY Crap I had no clue you could do so much. I recomend LBP2 if you really enjoy the Online. The single player was okay not as good as the original.
And ofcourse UC 1-3
Infamous 1&2
Kilzone 2&3

I didnt notice til just now that prefer a good single player over multiplayer lol
Why o why  +   1543d ago
this mini disagreement shows why sonys library is so strong. Theres something for everybody to the point where people can replace x with y or z because of the quality and variety available. Some people love cheesecake....hate that sh!t, prefer an apple crumble...

TimmyShire  +   1543d ago
There are must plays on both consoles, but it's good to see an exclusive developer isn't totally ignoring his 'competition' just because it's on a platform he won't work on.
KingPin  +   1543d ago
its not that he Wont work on it. Its because he cant.

im not doubting his dev skills here. im just saying that all his attention is on Gears and thats a 360 exclusive.
if he could develop a multiplat he would.

OT: must play ps3 games
MGS4, Uncharted, GOW, LBP, infamous.
Kingdom Come  +   1543d ago
Well, I think you're forgetting that he assisted People Can Fly with Bulletstorm and the PS3 Community rejected it...
suicidalblues  +   1543d ago
@ kingdom come

Maybe they rejected it because the bulletstorm demo sucked?
Kingdom Come  +   1543d ago
If we based our opinion of a game on a demo then Batman: Arkham Asylum would have been terrible, but it wasn't.
nycredude  +   1543d ago
Maybe they rejected it cause the game sucked?
Trainz  +   1543d ago
Uncharted 1/2 and most likely 3.
Heavy Rain.
The rest are meh.

Drekken  +   1543d ago
Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Infamous 2, Killzones, and Resistance are all great games. To say meh to any of those is hard to believe.
Kingdom Come  +   1543d ago
Warhawk was a fun game, Heavenly Sword was good, Killzone 2 was great, Killzone 3 was disappointing, Resistance 1 & 2 were fantastic, 3 again was a disappointment.
Tito08  +   1543d ago
@ Kingdom Come- Killzone 3 & Resistance 3, disappointing??? based on what??? sales??? They have sold poorly, but that doesn't mean those 2 are terrible games if you ask me!!!!!
eraursls84  +   1543d ago
Killzone 3 was a big disappointment for me, Killzone 2 has been one of my favorite fps and they ruined the feel of the game with 3. I haven't played Resistance 3, I heard it was good and went back to the original formula. Resistance 2 was a little disappointing to me, it was good but they shouldn't have deviated from the original so much.
StrongMan  +   1543d ago
Cliff just lost about $5 million on Gears 4's marketing budget from MS.

tiffac008  +   1543d ago
Only top 3?!
That's evil to ask anyone of that! - Link from the article if any of you have missed it~

-Valkyria Chronicles
-Heavy Rain
-Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
*InFamous 2

Currently playing Uncharted 3. So I want to finish that before I can decide between it or Uncharted 2.
#9 (Edited 1543d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(5) | Report | Reply
tiffac008  +   1543d ago
I forgot to add

Yakuza 3 & 4 and God of War III on my list... I knew that only asking for the top 3 ain't going to cut it. lol!

Edit: If your wondering why I don't have KZ, RE, GT and LBP on my list is because I sux at FPS games, sux at driving games and ain't creative enough to grace the world of Sackboy but I do respect those games for what they are and represent. :)

my top 5 games this gen so far
1. God of War 3 / Metal Gear Solid 4
2. Motorstorm Apocalypse / Gran Turismo 5
3. Uncharted 2 Among Thieves
volcane  +   1543d ago
My top three would be :-
1 - Uncharted 1/2 - haven't got 3 yet
2 - Resistance 1-3
3 - Infamous 1 & 2
ZippyZapper  +   1543d ago
Infamous 1 and 2 are the best games Sony has IMO.
OcelotRigz  +   1543d ago
Definitely the most underrated. Everyone always seems to forget about InFamous (1&2) and for me its part of the greatest games this gen, its just so much fun to play (priority no.1 in gaming), wonderful graphics, great story and the smoothest controls you're gonna get.
#11.1.1 (Edited 1543d ago ) | Agree(9) | Disagree(1) | Report
Sizzon  +   1543d ago
All three Uncharted games and Both Infamous games <3
rmedtx  +   1543d ago
He forgot to mention LittleBigPlanet. That is a definitely must play. And what about God of War 3???
Venjense  +   1543d ago
Killzone 3 is severely under appreciated, it has some of the best gunplay and AI for FPS games and the multiplayer is excellent.
eraursls84  +   1543d ago
Not if you were a fan of 2. Killzone 3 required much less skill than 2, they dumbed it down for the casual market instead of pleasing their fans. I bought it day one and played it for 2 weeks, I played Killzone 2 for over a year. It's a good thing when games play differently, and that's exactly what made Killzone 2 so great, but 3 felt like COD without auto aim.
thespaz  +   1543d ago
When a game is frustrating, it doesn't really turn me on. Killzone 2 required "Skill" but when you're late to the game (like I was) you can't even enter an online match without your ass being handed to you. The clunky controls were more than frustrating.

I don't wanna be skilled at my games... I want to have fun and putting clunky, hard to use aiming controls in the game hampers my fun. I don't care if it requires "skill" to play... it just frustrated me because I wanted something "easier" so I can get my killing on without wanting to throw the controller across the room.

A game isn't something I really wanna concern myself with getting GOOD at... I just wanna be able to pop the game in and start getting kills instead of trying to master the hard to use aiming system that some people found "challenging" just because they want to believe they're "skilled" at a game.

Also, I never got the feeling that Killzone 3 felt like Call of Duty. It still felt like Killzone with IMPROVED aiming controls. Instead of being cumbersome to move around, they made it smooth.
eraursls84  +   1543d ago
I agree that I to want an easy game now and then, that's when I put in call of duty or other games. All games should not cater to the casual users that want easy games. My point is different strokes for different folks, don't ruin Killzone just to make it another run of the mill "easy" game, there are plenty of those already.
BABY-JEDI  +   1542d ago
@thepaz I totally agree with you concerning the controls, but once you mastered them in KZ2 they were brilliant. Also downgrading MP in KZ3 'stats ect' really killzoned the game for me
Rezka  +   1543d ago
eh killzone 2 was better
ShiftyLookingCow  +   1543d ago
Gears of War confirmed for the PS3. You get to play as Kratos or maybe Ratchet(A chainsaw machine gun is about the only thing missing from his arsenal).
Ch1d0r1  +   1543d ago
Great job on re-posting what he said on PSN's Blog.
thespaz  +   1543d ago
Uncharted 1? That's nothing compared to UC2 and UC3. What is this guy thinking?

Killzone 2? What? Killzone 3 is a much better game in my opinion.

Heavy Rain? How about something with that lasts a little longer. Infamous 2 or something.

My favorite games of this gen are easily:

Uncharted 3
InFamous 2

I can't wait for Max Payne 3 and GTA V!
Kahvipannu  +   1543d ago
"Heavy Rain? How about something with that lasts a little longer. Infamous 2 or something. "

Well, you can play it many different ways, but your right, after all is seen, all is seen in HR. Tought I would count HR as must play game on PS3, it was simply amazing.

I'm too waiting MP3 with cautious optimism. MP 1&2 was made so memorable by the way the game told it's story, mood, and setting. Seeing much have changed in MP3, mostly the setting (from depressing snowy NY, to sunny South-America), and Remedy isn't making it anymore, I have my doubts.

Tought if anyone can make good crime-story, it's Rockstar, so I too have high hopes for it. Mixed feelings I know, but I really want this game to be as good as it's prequels.

2)Uncharted 2
Metal Gear Solid 4

3)Gran Turismo 5
Heavy Rain
SephirothX21  +   1543d ago
You have to give credit to Cliff for praising rivals. He has always talked highly of Killzone and Uncharted. Gears and Uncharted are two of the best series I've played this gen. Both brought something new and unique to the table and I want more.
tigertron  +   1543d ago
Uncharted trilogy, RFOM, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, Infamous, Warhawk, Siren: Blood Curse, the Ratchet and Clank games, LBP and MGS4.
