Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

GameRevolution's Top 25 PS3 Games

Posted on Friday, December 28 @ 11:16:21 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



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 you'd like to take out on a host of Greek gods, God of War III will feed that burning fire within.



4. 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.



3. 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.



2. 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 out do its predecessor in nearly every aspect, 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!



1. 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 as 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.
