GameRevolution's Top 25 PS3 Games - 2013 Edition

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



5. God of War III


Say what you want about Kratos as a character, the overabundance of QTEs, and the game's rather button-mashy combat, God of War III is easily one of the best games you can play on the PS3. If you have even a passing interest in Greek mythology, you'll eat up all of the incredible boss fights that take massive scale to a whole new level. If you've got some inner rage that you'd like to take out on a host of Greek gods, God of War III will feed that burning fire within.



4. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

The launch of a new Metal Gear title has become a major event ever since Metal Gear Solid blew everyone away on the original PlayStation. Over the years, the franchise has only begun to rise in popularity, virtually eclipsing Final Fantasy as the best Japanese-developed series available on the platform. As such, the launch of Metal Gear Solid 4 was monumental. It had gamers rushing out to buy a PS3 just so they could play Hideo Kojima's latest creation. Most importantly, however, Guns of the Patriots served as an epic conclusion to the story of the legendary Solid (Old) Snake.



3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

The second entry in Naughty Dog's PS3 platforming trilogy is undoubtedly the studio's crowning achievement. Not only does it outdo its predecessor in nearly every aspect, but it's so good that even the third installment can't match it. The cinematic approach to gameplay and storytelling was unprecedented at the time and has since been emulated by a number of other studios developing games in the same genre. If you own a PlayStation 3 and for some reason don't have Uncharted 2, what is wrong with you? Go buy it right now!



2. Journey

Those who claim that video games aren't art clearly haven't played thatgamecompany's PlayStation Network title Journey. As technology has progressed over the years, games have gotten over-explanatory and unnecessarily complicated. However, Journey goes against the grain, providing an experience that requires the player to explore and discover things on their own. It's the very definition of elegant simplicity in game form. The very fact that a two-hour downloadable title can leave such a lasting impact is a testament to the artistic skills of Jenova Chen and the rest of his team at TGC.

1. The Last of Us

How do you follow up a series like Uncharted? Sounds like an impossible task, no? Clearly, nothing is impossible for developer Naughty Dog, as the studio managed to outdo itself (again) with The Last of Us. Taking the basic framework of Uncharted and layering upon it a unique crafting system as well as beefed up stealth mechanics and dangerously dynamic enemy AI, TLOU blows away everything else on PlayStation 3. And that's not even taking into account the narrative, which is reason alone to play this game. It boasts some of the best acting, writing, and storytelling games have ever seen.
