NowGamer: Gears of War 3's Cliff Bleszinski reveals what you should be playing on PS3, including a major PS3 rival to Gears...
Mine would be: 1)Uncharted 2)MGS 3)Twisted Metal (Sure it isn't out yet but come on- its going to be amazing).
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.
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.
Folklore gets no love, tis a shame really...
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.
Other than Cliffy, only Ken Levine was smart enough to understand that PS3 Exclusives are what should be celebrated on the consoles Birthday.
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.
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
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.
1) Uncharted 1 2) Uncharted 2 3) Uncharted 3
So... I take it you like Uncharted? lol
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!
^ 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?
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.
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
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.

WHAT??!! you neeed to play metal gear solid 4 now! its amazing!
God of war 3 is still my favorite PS3 exclusive after all the games I played.
Cheers Cliff, I would never have known what games to play had you not told me, my life is so much better now.
I personally agree on all the games he mentioned. No need to be so mean :D
Lol, exactly what I was going to say, but I guess you beat me to it :P
Heavy Rain - no thanks. - Uncharted 3 - LBP2 - God Of War 3
Heavy Rain was awesome whats a matter with you Imagination is what people lack, not me
I think LBP and inFamous are bigger 'must play' ps3 series than HR.
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
I only played 3&4 but they show you what you missed from 1,2,3 on 4.So you can just get 4.
First of its kind very original with a great story.If it was a movie it would probably be grammy nominated.
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
I didnt notice til just now that prefer a good single player over multiplayer lol
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...
Heavy Rain is awesome. Mind you, it is for grown-ups LoL
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.
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.
Well, I think you're forgetting that he assisted People Can Fly with Bulletstorm and the PS3 Community rejected it...
@ kingdom come Maybe they rejected it because the bulletstorm demo sucked?
If we based our opinion of a game on a demo then Batman: Arkham Asylum would have been terrible, but it wasn't.
Maybe they rejected it cause the game sucked?
Uncharted 1/2 and most likely 3. MGS4. Heavy Rain. The rest are meh.
Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, Infamous 2, Killzones, and Resistance are all great games. To say meh to any of those is hard to believe.
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.
@ 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!!!!!
@Tito08 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.
Cliff just lost about $5 million on Gears 4's marketing budget from MS.
By being a realistic human being who's not some lowly forum troll? Yeah. Totally. o_O.
sexy cliffy at it again
That's evil to ask anyone of that! http://blog.us.playstation.... - 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.
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
My top three would be :- 1 - Uncharted 1/2 - haven't got 3 yet 2 - Resistance 1-3 3 - Infamous 1 & 2
Infamous 1 and 2 are the best games Sony has IMO.
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.
All three Uncharted games and Both Infamous games <3
He forgot to mention LittleBigPlanet. That is a definitely must play. And what about God of War 3???
Killzone 3 is severely under appreciated, it has some of the best gunplay and AI for FPS games and the multiplayer is excellent.
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.
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.
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.
@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
eh killzone 2 was better
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).
Great job on re-posting what he said on PSN's Blog.
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 GTA IV I can't wait for Max Payne 3 and GTA V!
"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.
Killzone 2 for the best looking and playing fps campaign; Killzone 3 for best looking and playing mp and Demon's Souls for the best action rpg ever.
killzone 2 is also my favorite fps for ps3
I tried but I simply cannot get it down to 3 so heres six in three tiers. 1)Wipeout HD/Fury God of War 3 2)Uncharted 2 Metal Gear Solid 4 3)Gran Turismo 5 Heavy Rain
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.
Uncharted trilogy, RFOM, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, Infamous, Warhawk, Siren: Blood Curse, the Ratchet and Clank games, LBP and MGS4.
Socom Confrontation, duh.
Scored all sorts of points with the Jazz Jackrabbit reference.
