In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

So my friend is selling me his PS3 so he can buy a PS4. I'm getting 2 controllers plus 5 games (though they're all sports games).

So, I need a list of game suggestions. I'm looking for console exclusives, and games not available on PC.

Obviously, The Last of Us and GTAV should be there, and I'll probably get GTAV first.

I don't really have a lot of free time to do much gaming anyways, so this is really a long term investment, so I can play games that I've missed from this generation.

First, get PS Plus. If you're fast enough, you can get Ico/Shadows of the Colossus HD collection with your subscription. Also, if you like mythology, get the God of War saga. Good games. I've finished God of War and God of War 2, but haven't started God of War 3. Now, I'm not all knowing about PS3, because I only had mine for about a year. So, I'm sure more knowledgeable people will post more.

Yea, get PS Plus - and i assume you have 500 GB so you'd seriously enjoy it. Then hop on GTA V online and stick up some liquor stores with Bret Ugh and I.

I don't have the PS3 yet, so I'll have to wait on PS+ until then. I believe it's in the mail today. I should have it sometime next week. But yeah, I will get that, I suppose. I'll definitely have to pick up a copy of GTA when it arrives.

Fix'd. I don't have GTA V for PS3.

Red Dead Redemption
Demon's Souls
Ico/Shadow of the Colossus

Did you have a PS2 or anything? Because if not, there are a bunch of games on the online store worth playing.

Since you're a grad student and all, it's probably smart to do the lower commitment games first.

Trying I think of what you would've missed. Focus on exclusives I'd say.

No. I love that game. Valkyrie Chronicles has weathered the years of trade ins and still sits in my collection.

Since everyone seem to list all that i wanted to pick, How about checking the ps3 exclusives list?
May i suggest Infamous 2 and god of war 3? You should be able to find either game in the bargain bin. Valkyrie chronicle is fun and all but... i don't know. I prefer Yakuza.

Uh, why? The controls suck, but it's the choices that make that game. I guess you consider it more of an interactive movie.

I concur with PS+

$50 a year for 64 games. Not too shaby.


As for some awesome PS3 exculsives i'd suggest
The Last of Us (no brainer)
Heavy Rain and MGS4 (if you enjoy story-driven games)
God of War series (1 is the best IMO but 3 is pretty epic)
Little Big Planet ( for the creative gamer with too much time on his hands)

Other games on PSN that I recommend downloading
Journey
Limbo
Dead Nation
Sound Shapes
Castle Crashers

All pretty good suggestions, but you're forgetting the most important thing.

@ Lien God of War 3 is worth getting, but DON'T GET God of War Ascension. 3 is better.

I kind of second not getting Heavy Rain. I have a copy but I've never even fucking played it.

I've never played any of the MGS games, so I should probably get one of those. And yeah, Longo, I've never owned any console besides a Wii before this. Just played a few random games on friends' systems.

I have played RDR on 360, so I don't need to get that, the one glaring Rockstar omission from PC.

I think this is the list I'll work through for now:

GTAV
The Last of Us
MGS4?
God of War 3
Journey
Ico/Shadow of the Colossus
Uncharted Series
Heavy Rain

Unfortunately, I am incredibly busy with school - so this will be very slow going throughout the year. Like I said, long term investment. Grad school is a big time sink right now.
