GameRevolution's Top 25 PS3 Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Saturday, December 28 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff


Last month, Sony ushered in the new generation of PlayStation with the release of PS4, marking the beginning of the end of a long and rich life for PlayStation 3. As such, we here at GameRevolution figured there's no better time to look back at some of the best games on Sony's (now) last-gen console.

25. Super Stardust HD

Developer Housemarque solidified its place as one of Sony's most prized PSN-centric studios with Super Stardust HD. It was one of the PlayStation 3's first must-have downloadable titles, providing addictive gameplay akin to Geometry Wars and Asteroids. Despite being a simple yet excellently-crafted shoot-'em-up, its high-definition visuals are still dazzling to this day. What is most important, however, is the leaderboard system, which had gamers hooked for hours upon end, chasing those high scores.



24. Batman: Arkham City

I can count on one hand the number of superhero games that are worth your time, and Batman: Arkham City is number one on that list. Rocksteady took the excellent combat established in Arkham Asylum and built an incredible open world around it. If you're a fan of Batman, the sheer number of iconic characters and villains is reason enough to give this game a look. Plus, soaring over the city never gets old.



23. Demon's Souls

Gluttons for punishment swear by FromSoftware's super-challenging action game. Those who look back longingly at the early days of gaming when video games were actually hard will find much to love about Demon's Souls. If dying over and over and over again sounds like a good time to you, then this game will be right up your alley. If not, give it a try anyway, you might just find out that a heavy dose of grueling challenge is just what your thumbs needed.



22. BioShock Infinite

Ken Levine is a master storyteller, and BioShock Infinite is Levine in top form. But in addition to the insane plot twists and well-written characters is one of the most fully realized fictional worlds gaming has ever seen. A floating city in the sky rife with political turmoil tied to an unhealthy obsession with the founding fathers of the United States? Check. A giant mechanical bird that is tasked with protecting a girl with time-bending powers? Check. Seriously, this game has creativity coming out of its ears.



21. Dark Souls

While Xbox-exclusive gamers missed out on FromSoftware's brutally punishing Demon's Souls, its spiritual successor brought the painfully difficult experience to the Xbox 360. This sword-slinging action game certainly isn't for everyone, but if you appreciate the tough-as-nails difficulty that defined the retro gaming era, you'll feel right at home with Dark Souls. You'll die a lot, retread the same path for hours at a time, and find the sudden urge to smash your controller on the floor—but hey, that's all part of the fun, right?
