Top 10 Best Playstation 3 Games

The new "Cell" processor, Blu-Ray disc compatibility, a co-developed Nvidia graphics processor, 128-bit pixel precision, and 1080p resolution - The Playstation 3 is arguably the greatest gaming machine on the planet. But what is a console without the games. Here is a list of the best games available for the Playstation 3.
The Top Ten
1 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

This was the first game I bought for my PS3, along with COD4, and man, did it blow my mind. Every part of the game is so special, fun, and wonderfully crafted. The story is complete gold, the characters are wonderfully voice-acted, and the graphics are just beautiful. This game alone defeats Xbox's whole library of exclusives (Halo is overrated and trash now). Yes, I did play Uncharted 3, and I liked it, but not nearly as much as I liked Among Thieves.

Best of the series I have played. Great game, and I thought it should have been number one. If I could have changed one thing in the game, I would have made it longer and fixed minor glitches that I found. I have played it over 10 times and beaten it each time. I keep playing multiplayer and will not stop either. I thought it was AWESOME. That is all.

2 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

I had a really hard time with this list, as there are games on this list I think are better, e.g., COD4, Arkham Asylum, Bioshock, Orange Box, etc. However, I feel these are not PS3 games but rather console ports. MGS4 is a PS3 game through and through.

There really is no other game like it, and you would be hard-pressed to find another game with this big a budget that has as much care and soul behind it. Sure, there are flaws - massive flaws - like the hours of redundant, nonsensical dialogue and cutscenes relied on to tell the story, the awkward control scheme, and the sometimes out-of-place and ineffective comedy and action set pieces. But all that pales in comparison to just how original, complex, and heartfelt this game is.

Almost no game is flawless, especially this one, but all you have to do is remember the Shadow Moses mission, the microwave hallway, the final battle, and the entire epilogue, and all those flaws seem obsolete. This game is just on another level compared to most games.

3 Grand Theft Auto IV

This game is a disaster when you use weapons. It should be number 1, and Assassin's Creed shouldn't even be on the list at all. This game is so fun when you pass so many missions. It gets much more intense when you pass a lot of missions. This isn't specified in the booklet of Grand Theft Auto 4.

This game is one of the best games I have ever seen. There are so many things to do. The great thing is that you can go into any building. And if you play with a storyline, it's still amazing. I really like it because it's not all about one character. I would recommend this game to everybody!

4 The Last of Us

Okay, this is where I draw the line. The Last of Us at number 43? Are you out of your mind? It should have been at the number 1 spot, not Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This game is a masterpiece, and you dare to drop it all the way down to number 43? You must be stoned.

It has the best gameplay for shooters, stealth, action/adventure. It has the best story I've ever seen in a game, with true emotions. I would say it's movie-quality. It features the best characters ever in a game. And it has the best-fitting soundtrack that there has ever been in a game. The person who made this list clearly doesn't deserve to criticize games since he is clearly not a gamer. You can agree or disagree with me.

5 God of War III

This is the best action/adventure game ever. Even though it is an adult game, it is still one of the finest. If you've seen this game's graphics, your jaws would drop, and the story is equally amazing. It should at least be in the top 5. I agree it's not a number 1 type game, but still, being such a big and successful franchise, I think it deserves it. It is truly one of the best exclusive games for the PS3.

If you own a PS3, God of War 3 is a must-play for you. Period. It is one of the genuinely good exclusives that we PS3 owners get. Compared to the Xbox exclusives like Halo and Gears of War, which are both just kill the bad guys type of games, this game actually has a story to it: kill Zeus for revenge and eliminate anyone who gets in the way.

6 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Best PS3 game and one of the best games ever. The storyline is amazing and realistic, unlike certain games. The gameplay, while not as good as MW2 or MW3, is great. The graphics are very good. The characters are the best part of the game. You really get attached to them. When Gaz died, I never got over it. When I thought Price was dead, I cried. The soundtrack is outstanding. This is probably the best Call of Duty game in my opinion, and possibly the best PS3 game.

1. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
3. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
4. Assassin's Creed 3
5. Assassin's Creed 2
6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
7. Call of Duty: World at War
8. Batman: Arkham Origins
9. Call of Duty: 3
10. The Last of Us (The reason for it being so low is that I just got it and haven't taken it all in yet.)

7 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Why watch a movie when you can play one? That's what I asked myself as I played this game. The epic set pieces one would usually only find in Hollywood are here, along with the ability to take the reins during the epic adventure. Not only that, but the incredible setting is complemented by a soundtrack that matches it perfectly. The levels of immersion are off the charts. The characters are as awesome as ever, with increasingly better writing, as well as new characters that fit in with the story. All in all, Uncharted 3 is not only my favorite of the PS3 Uncharted games, but also my favorite game on PS3, period.

8 Red Dead Redemption

Absolutely stunning video game that stays with me to this day, a year after I played it. The world is so amazing, the story is so well-crafted and sad, the gameplay is so fun, and the characters are so memorable that this game is just the best game I've ever played. No game has ever had such an impact on me, and I've never fallen in love with a game as I did with Red Dead Redemption. This is the greatest game I've ever played.

I concur with what has been written in the description bit of the vote. It's without a doubt, one of the best games to have ever made it into the world of consoles. Its level of immersion is unbelievable!

9 Grand Theft Auto V

This game combines three characters: Trevor, Michael, and Franklin. This game includes heists, prostitution, and many other things. Grand Theft Auto 5 has had huge success and will continue to be successful until the next generation arrives.

By far, this is one of the finest games I have played so far. It totally blows your mind. You might not even realize how your hours have passed away, and yet you're still hooked on it. The gameplay and graphics are also stunning. Really an outstanding game.

Yes, this game just came out, and yes, it is worth the hype. The game is huge, beautiful, and just wonderful. The three main characters are great, and the heists are one of a kind. For 60 bucks, you can't do much better.

10 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The first-ever Call of Duty game I fell in love with. Also, it's the first game I played on the PlayStation ever since it came out. Still loving it in 2013! I am shocked that this isn't number one. The characters are amazing, the guns, the maps, the gameplay - what is there not to love about this game?

Most of the Call of Duty games have highlighted this list. The map packs here are amazing. The story mode is so clever and intense. You fall straight through. I've played this 10 times, and online never ceases to bore you. But please, get rid of HACKERS!

The Contenders
11 Assassin's Creed II

How is this lower than Assassin's Creed 1? Sure, AC1 was an overall better stealth game, but Assassin's Creed 2 was a million times better. The gameplay was improved, there were way more interesting characters, and the story was long and enjoyable. Altair in the original felt stale and bland. You can actually relate to Ezio and how he develops as a character. I honestly do not care if this game is 1st. I just want it to be higher than AC1. Focusing on the main topic, this game is my favorite because I have a lot of memories playing this amazing game. I am also a huge fan of history, conspiracy theories, and sci-fi, which AC2 seems to blend well.

12 LittleBigPlanet

I love playing this at my friend's house. It's the only game that would make me buy a PS3! Stephen Fry (I think that's his name) is in it! The things I like doing most are slamming my friend in the face with a frying pan and trying to destroy him with a gigantic banana.

This game lets you be as creative as you want, and the levels are really fun to play too. The second LBP has worse levels but better objects and materials to build and customize with. And yes, I love the English-accented narrator.

Ugh, I wanted to play Infamous, but then I saw this. I have so many memories playing this game - just awesome! Please vote for this, of course. If you don't want to, then play it and you'll see why I voted for this.

13 Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

The best in 2007, the story begins with a 400-year-old clue in Sir Francis Drake's coffin. This sets modern-day fortune hunter Nathan Drake on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado. But stranded on a forgotten island in the Pacific Ocean, Nathan's search turns deadly. Haunted by mercenaries, outnumbered and outgunned, Nathan and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secret of the mysterious island.

Jaw-dropping graphics (with an HDMI cable, obviously), amazing gameplay, hilarious yet lovable characters. Very challenging at certain points, and all wrapped together with a story that is more shamelessly copied from Indiana Jones than anything I can think of.

14 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

For me, Skyrim is the best game ever. Oblivion was incredible, but Skyrim is outstanding. I've played it for almost two years, and it's quite funny and random in some parts. Every time I restart, I change to a different character. It varies the gameplay so much. You can become better at archery if you are a Wood Elf, or better at two-handed weapons if you are a Nord. There is always something different to do and something new to explore. I love it. I can't wait for The Elder Scrolls Online.

Personally, I think that the open world can get really boring and that the side quests are really uncreative. But overall, it's a good time. The game does have long loading times, though (better than on the 360). I do think, however, that the game is overrated and can get really uninteresting in terms of characters, gameplay, etc.

15 Call of Duty: Black Ops

When I first started playing Black Ops, all I ever liked was zombies! But when I started to play online, I was on it every single day! One of the best FPS games ever! Great graphics, great campaign, great multiplayer, and extremely addicting zombies! Like it says on the back of the game, "Black Ops is the ultimate entertainment package." It should be number 1!

Absolutely love this game. I never get bored of it. Also, it has a great storyline. I'm not too good at multiplayer, so I mostly play zombies. I mainly do co-op on zombies and team up with buddies.

16 Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

The most amazing game ever! It never gets boring because the game is so huge, and there's always something new to do. Especially with the expansion packs, beautiful scenery, and intense action, this game was the start of my obsession with RPGs. Everyone should buy it.

COD4? Really? Shooting a gun for 20 hours is the best game? What the hell? Oblivion has different kinds of weapons and a thing called a "story." It's for people with at least the IQ of a 5-year-old.

If you look up pure awesomeness, you'll see this game. Great weapons, leveling, and storyline - everything you expect from the Elder Scrolls series.

17 Fallout 3

Fallout 3 is just awesome. I got it a couple of weeks ago from GameStop for only $5. The open world is extremely interesting, and while the graphics can be ugly, they can also be simply breathtaking. The V.A.T.S system is awesome, and the gameplay is hard and rewarding.

The Game of the Year edition allows an expansion of the gameplay to maximize a game that should always be part of a true gamer's shelf. Why is this game treated so poorly in the polls?

It needs to be in the top 10 at least. With over hundreds of hours of gameplay, Fallout 3 is one of the greatest games ever made.

18 Mortal Kombat (2011)

Absolutely brilliant game. I spent ages on it, trying to complete the trophies and playing story mode on the hardest difficulty. The challenge tower and online play are brilliant.

One of the best games of the 2010s. Superb fighting action!

Best game ever! Why is it so low? It should be in the Top 5!

19 Infamous 2

InFamous 2 took everything good about the first InFamous and dialed it up to 11. The parkour is more fun, the power-ups are more satisfying, and both the gameplay and story are much more refined. Plus, the characters of Nix and Kuo make for a really interesting dynamic. It took an already fantastic game and made it better.

A great exclusive that is insanely fun. Invite some friends and have a great time. Just play this game. The powers and the gameplay are just awesome.

Great gameplay, improved on the previous game in every way. The story and plot twists were surprisingly amazing. Only two other games have left me with such a shocked feeling: the end of HL2 Episode 2 and the twist in Bioshock. Plus, it's really two games in one due to the karma system. Top game!

20 Resistance: Fall Of Man

Resistance is the perfect game if you've just bought a PS3. It showcases every feature of the console: graphics, AI, and brilliant gameplay. It's a cross between Doom and Call of Duty. The game boasts the best arsenal of weapons yet to grace the PS3, and some of the most visually impressive enemies (if you can call them that).

I own a copy.


Can you name another game with flamethrowers, mutant humanoids, angels, giant spiders, rocket launchers, tanks, magic grenades, and twenty-foot-long miniguns in it? No, you can't.

THIS IS THE BEST. I have finished it two times. It's even better to play the second time with new guns. You don't need to buy anything else. I once killed five people in a row with a sniper. This game is EPIC!

21 Killzone 2

Overrated game with crappy Halo-like online play. I love shooting someone 300 times just to get them to drop.

It's a great game. It has good graphics and feels like I'm killing a real man.

Love this game. Great online, great story, great killing people. This answers Halo Xbox 360.

22 The Walking Dead

Absolutely loved this game! I just finished Season Two and can't seem to find Season Three yet! I'm addicted and loving the storyline and choices as I go. Sometimes the game startles me and even tugs at my heartstrings when forced to make decisions. Must play!

Telltale is an amazing developer for storylines, and The Walking Dead is one of the best in this area of storytelling.

23 Portal 2

I don't think this is just the best PS3 game. I think it's the best game of this console generation.

24 Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time

Are you kidding me? This is the most fun cartoon-style game of all time. I was actually disappointed that I finished the game, but I was still content with the epic gameplay, weapons, gadgets, and everything. It should be in the top 10.

I have beaten this game 10 times and still never got bored. That's how amazing this game is.

This series needs more attention.
