Yeah, I still lean towards games for my 360 so there are people in here more qualified to speak on great PS3 games.

I stopped playing the Metal Gear games years ago but should look into playing the most recent titles. I don't even know what Stranglehold is. Cos I FAIL.

Portal 2, motherfucker.

RE5 is honestly only worthwhile if you have someone to play through the entire thing co-op with. Even then it's not especially great. Metal Gear is fantastic of course, though certainly divisive in some of its design choices. And completely unplayable if you aren't entirely up to date with the series.

Dead Space and sequel are fun for what they are. You can find the original for fairly cheap now. Umm, Bioshock 2. Devil May Cry 4. Ninja Gaiden Sigma (fuck yessss).

Thanks for the advice. My roommate's girlfriend is picking up Portal 2 so there's no need to plunk 60 bucks on that.

I've been considering Dead Space and Bioshock 2. How does Bioshock stack up to the first game?

Well, it lacks a lot of the sense of discovery and freshness of the original. And is missing the tight narrative drive that makes the first two-thirds of the original so strong. Of course, it doesn't shit the bed entirely in its last act, so it has that over the first. The combat scenarios are more interesting, and you get to see a lot more of the world, so it's not a bad thing. It's more Bioshock, essentially.

Also, I don't own all these, but a few more recs I feel I can support. If you're at all into fighting games, BlazBlue is kind of essential. I'm not even much a fan of the genre, but I've had a lot of fun playing it. Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 as well.

Also God of War III is a blast. Yakuza 4 is part of a rather overlooked open-world brawler series with a ton of personality. There are also a few really essential downloadable titles on PSN - Flower, Pixeljunk Eden, Lumines Supernova, Shatter, Wipeout HD. Actually yeah, many of those are worth checking out before a lot of full retail titles even.

Not a huge fighting game fan, but I'm certainly open to Marvel vs. Capcom, Super Street Fighter or Fight Night.

I just don't like paying for a new release when the ultimate edition with the DLCs will be out for half of the price a few months later.

God of War is certainly a possibility. I'm definitely getting the Back to the Future series on PSN.

I hear you. You can't go wrong with MvC. That series is just unfathomably enjoyable.

Anyone got Mortal Kombat yet? I wasn't interested in it at first, but after reading a few reviews and watching a vid of fatalities, I'm now quite interested in importing it. I've already planned my next two purchases to be Portal 2 and LA Noire, though.

I do not. I suppose I should. There's just something uber geeky about talking into my videogames, but who am I trying to impress anyway?

Bioshock 2, Dead Space, Burnout and Stranglehold purchased. Diving on carts in bullet time (dubbed Tequila Time) as Chow Yun-Fat lays motherfuckers to waste is a delight.
