25 best PlayStation games ever

PCA: "When Sony decided to have a bash at a console 17 years ago, little could it have known the great games that decision would spawn. We rate the best 25 video games to appear on the PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3." (PS2, PS3, Retro)

No Kingdom Hearts either. Quite sad :,(.

Kingdom Hearts was shit.
LoneWolf019  +   1527d ago
How was Kingdom Hearts shit? By far one of the best stories to date that spans multiple games regardless if they arent direct sequels.
dendenmooshi  +   1527d ago
If they included these games that people are suggesting, they'd have to include a lot more games as well....

The list that they give is true and diverse. I'd say, with very few exceptions, that the list contains the most revolutionary games that appeared on the PS consoles.

1- God of War 3
2- God of War 2
3- God of War 1
4- God of War Ghost of Sparta
5- God of War Chains of Olympus
6- MGS4
The rest can be anything...

Why not? God of War games are easily the better than any other games out there.

God of War games are great, but they don't have as much replay value as I would like. Yakuza 3 and 4 are beast games if your looking for a deep story and value for your money.

I remember sitting in my flat one weekend bored so I went out and got a new game, didn't care what it was. Picked up Yakuza 3 even though I don't like beat em ups, I thought I can always trade it if I didn't like it. About 2 hours in after watching the backstories and cut scenes I was intrigued by it, after another 2 hours I completely hooked.

Yakuza 3/4 are one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had and would recommend these games to anyone as there really is something for everyone in them.

wheres killzone 2? why killzone 3 D:
LOGICWINS  +   1527d ago
Simple. Because Killzone 3 did more to innovate the FPS genre than KZ2 did. While KZ2 is mainly known for being the best looking shooter at the time of its release, Killzone 3 will go down in the history books for truly being the first game this console generation where motion controls actually enhanced the experience of a hardcore game.

I loved KZ2 as well, but I think that Killzone 3 is a better game by far. KZ3 maintained the weighty feel of characters while maintaining the realistic recoil of the guns. The only difference is that the controls are more responsive.

The people who say KZ3 got "COD-fied" are ignorant. The recoil in KZ3 is WAAAAY more prevalent than any gun in COD.

KZ3 is Cod-fied no ifs, ands, or buts.

KZ2 is better than KZ3. Who gives a hoot about Move. I'm more concerned about the the game ACTUAL CORE gameplay than what type of controller I use.

So many great features were that was in KZ2 are removed in KZ3. KZ3 also is dumbed down. The developers themselves said that they wanted to make KZ3 more casual and less hardcore.

They decreased the amount of variables calculated for bullet damage from 23 to just seven...

They took out server list because they claim that PEOPLE HAD TROUBLE READING them...

Instead of IMPROVING a great spawn system that was spawn grenades they replaced it with a worse system Tactical Spawn Points...

And I'm not even going to get into how much more balanced the classes were in KZ2 than KZ3.

KZ3 is an average first sight first kill shooter now. Camping a room in KZ2 was nearly non existent. Camping in KZ3 now as common as camping in CoD and BF.

Did I miss something or is there really no Jak on this list?
helghast102  +   1527d ago

Your list is broken, fix it.

I’ve always been a FFIX over FFVII guy myself, though I understand why public opinion sways towards VII.
grumpysmurf  +   1527d ago
VII is the only Final Fantasy game that I completed every side quest and activity in. It's iconic, far more so than any FF game after it.
LoneWolf019  +   1527d ago
Blitzball is all I needed to enjoy 10 more than 7
C_Menz  +   1527d ago
I enjoy FF8 more than FF7. And FFX over both.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1527d ago
FFIX is epic its my fave final fantasy.
VII is awesome though =)
dendenmooshi  +   1527d ago
I agree. I loved FF9 the most. However, I believe that FF7 has had a greater impact over the gaming industry. I would even go as far as to say that FF7 has had more impact than every JRPG out there. And it shows.

Saying that it's the best JRPG out there is a different story though.

MGS4 :)
arabiensoldier  +   1527d ago
RESISTANCE ? TWISTED METAL? INFAMOUS?.....pretty sure there is more

they forgot a lot of great games, but it's to be expected since narrowing the best PlayStation Games is not an easy task at all.
Conzul  +   1527d ago
I'm sure the inFamous releases are *slightly* better than some of the other games on that list....Powerful story, hours of gameplay, first time a game made me cry (evil ending). etc
