The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PS3 Games - 2013 Edition

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



10. Heavy Rain

David Cage is a visionary. I love games because of the potential that they hold in offering interactive storytelling experiences. Quantic Dream is all about creating games that fit into that mold. Heavy Rain is their most recent effort, and while it is by no means a perfect game, what it manages to achieve is absolutely incredible. This is currently the best the industry has to offer in terms of interactive drama, and if the hype for Beyond: Two Souls is any indication, I'm not the only one who feels this way.



9. flower

While thatgamecompany's Journey is undoubtedly the greatest experience the studio has created thus far, Jenova Chen and his team likely wouldn't have ever dreamed it up if they first hadn't developed flower. A game that features absolutely no violence and takes full use of the console's SixAxis controls, flower is an absolutely serene experience that just imbues you with a sense of peace. It's abstract, gorgeous, and emotional all at the same time.



8. Red Dead Redemption

You may have realized that Grand Theft Auto IV is noticeably absent. That is almost certainly because everyone on the GR staff was just so wowed by Red Dead Redemption that Rockstar's other open-world hit got pushed to the wayside. Who would have thought that a sandbox western could possibly be so amazing? As with any Rockstar game, there are plenty of memorable characters to be found in Redemption. Plus, the world is great and there's just so much to do. And then there's that ending. Oh man, that ending.



7. Resistance 3

Sure, the Killzone games are great, but Resistance 3 takes the cake as the best PS3-exclusive FPS. Insomniac Games learned some valuable lessons from Resistance 2, and it really shows in the third installment. It's got an incredible arsenal of weapons that each serve a specific purpose and function. The story is much more focused (and ultimately better) this time around, serving as the de facto single-player FPS experience on the PlayStation 3. Let's also not forget how totally awesome the box art is.



6. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

While not quite as revolutionary as Uncharted 2, the third installment in Naughty Dog's popular treasure-hunting franchise was an incredible thrill ride from start to finish. Visually, Drake's Deception is easily one of the most gorgeous games on the PlayStation 3. With a cast of incredible characters—that Catherine Marlowe still haunts me to this day—and an array of gorgeous set pieces, there's so much to love about Drake's latest sand-filled journey. Speaking of which...
