Help Me Create a PS3 Game Library!

Rate this Entry
So yesterday I had a weird date with destiny (as in fate, not the upcoming Activision game *buh-dum-tssh*) that basically ended with me purchasing a PS3 this weekend. This is the first non-Nintendo console I've ever owned since the Dreamcast (#memreez), and while I know about some popular PS3 games I don't know as much about the PlayStation library as I do about the Nintendo library. (Sorry Microsoft, I still don't see a need to purchase an XBox anytime soon.) Soooo let me know which game(s) you think I should add to my PS3 library, with bonus points given out to folks who give a reason/reasons why I should get said game(s).

I only have three rules:
1) I've already bought the entire Uncharted PS3 Trilogy (Drake's Fortune, Among Thieves & Drake's Deception) and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, so there's no need to mention these games.
2) Remember Me, The Last of Us, inFAMOUS, and Heavy Rain are already on my want list, so there's no need to mention these, either.
3) Don't recommend Bayonetta 'cause if I decide to buy it I'd rather get the Wii U version when it comes out.

Everything else is fair game.

Merci beaucoup, y'all! :)

    If you haven't played Shadow of the Colossus or Ico on the PS2, definitely get the HD remastered version for PS3 (about $20 new)!
    If for the same reasons above, you should also get Okami HD from the PSN store!

    Let me recommend games I would probably buy:
    Dark Souls and Dark Souls II (heard really good things about this series)
    The Tales of games (Xillia, Symphonia, Graces)
    Eternal Sonata
    Valkyria Chronicles

    Seeing as you already purchased Ni No Kuni I'm going to assume you like JRPG's, so those are the games I'm going to recommend.

    #1 Tales of Graces F - Graces is probably my 2nd favorite JRPG for the PS3. It is a mostly open world game with with the exception of a few linear story progression spots and ridiculous in depth and puzzle filled dungeons. It uses a really cool combat system that lets you switch between fighting styles, so if you get tired of being defensive you can switch to offensive or if you need ranged back up you can switch to another team mate and have them start using their magic set. Leveling is also really fun too because they use the Title system. Through out the game depending on what you do in the story, how you fight, or who you talk with you earn titles that have 4 or 5 abilities and stat boosts that you can enhance by equiping that title in combat. Some title also get you extra costumes too. The best part of the game is the story. I like it so much because the plot isnt on a global scale. Its more secluded to a group of friends and family that are being effected by world event. If you end up liking Tales there are 3 other games in the series on the PS3 now that are also fantastic.

    #2 Final Fantasy X HD - My personal all time favorite JRPG. FFX uses turn based fighting that lets you switch out party members during combat. Nothing to exciting there. The best part of the game are the story and the characters. The entire story line of the game is super depressing and sad. But in a good way. You get to see how the characters change their attitudes towards each other as the plot progresses and after fights together. It completely changes the story closer to the end. I also really enjoyed that it was the female protagonists' story told from the males' point of view. Probably the only game I have played where the love story doesn't have a happy ending too.

    #3 Eternal Sonata - Really cool niche game. All of the music in the game is from or based on one old english composer. That composer is also a party member. From the very begining of the game you know whats going to happen at the end. The whole plot of the game is what happens that leads to that ending. Combat is pretty basic. It is very teamwork oriented and set on a grid so position is crucial. Cant tell you a whole lot about this one without ruining the story. Sorry

    And I figure I should mention some non JRPGS.

    #4 Dragon Age - Amazing game from Bioware. The whole purpose of playing DA is story customization. There are 5 or 6 diffrent beginnings to the stoy based on what kind of character you make. What class, race, or social status you chose changes how your story starts. Everything you do in the game effects the ending. Who you talk to, who you romance, who you side with, what quests you take, whos in your party when you do those quests. Then once you beat the game the story you created carries over to the expasion and then the exansion story carries over into DA2. The combat in the first DA is more PC oriented so its kind of slow. When you get to DA2 they made it more hack and slash so it quicker paced and a lot more exciting.

    #5 Injustice: Gods Among Us - It just a fighting game done by the Mortal Kombat guys but it has an AMAZING story mode in it. I cant say much about it without giving away the plot but I will say best super hero fight ever goes to "Good Wonder woman VS Bad Wonder woman". The game also showcases what a Boss Aquaman is! :)

    I promise I didn't intend for this comment to be so long. I work at a video game store so there is just to much to tell!

    If you like Heavy Rain you might also want to check out Beyond: Two Souls. Its made by the same company, but was released close to The Last of Us, so it was overshadowed by it. There is also MGS 4 if you are looking for a rather epic story, and dont forget about the Ratchet and Clank series.

    Woo-hoot, thanks for the suggestions so far! :)

    @kyogre545 - I'll def check out Colossus and Ico 'cause I know like nothing about the PS2 library (I'm a gamer, I promise!) so I need to do some major catch-up w/ that system. And curious--do you have experience with both the Playstation and Wii versions of Okami? If so which version would you recommend, specifically in terms of controls? I was actually thinking about buying the Wii version since I've heard positive things about using the Wii Remote, but I've also heard that the controls can be pretty off/unresponsive.

    @CakeFairyForever - Don't worry about the comment length, I like detailed responses like this 'cause as an indecisive person it helps with my decision-making. :) Yes, I am quite a fan of JPRGs, so I'll look into those games, especially FFX 'cause--confession time--I've never played an FF game before. (I promise, I am a gamer!) Also, I currently have a game of Dragon Age: Origins going on my PC! But my laptop can barely handle the game load so I may re-buy it for PS3. (I know I'm gonna have to re-buy L.A. Noire and maybe the Mass Effect Trilogy because of this. @__@)

    @Big Lutz - How much do I need to know about the MGS franchise to play MGS4? Will I get lost plot-wise if I don't have prior knowledge of other MGS games? And yes Ratchet & Clank, I've heard nothing but good things! I was looking at getting either that or something from the Jak & Daxter series, but I'm not sure which one I should get. (At least which one to get first--I can always get something from both when I have more money.)

    I've played the Wii version at a friend's house and I own the PS2 version and I just like the PS2 version much better. Drawing with the Celestial Brush was a little harder on the Wii version. That being said, I recommend the PS version (PS3 HD version)! :)

    Dont worry most of my co workers have never played FF either! 10 is a good one to start out with just because it was just re released so if you get stuck somewhere you can find current FAQs on it. My PC can barely handle playing the sims so I understand the loading problem. :) Thankfully DA and LA Noire are only like 9 bucks so not to bad replacing those.

    @kyogre545 - Alright, in that case I'll check out Okami HD then. Thanks for answering!

    @CakeFairyForever - Okay good, now I don't feel as bad. :P And my problem is that I love getting collector's/signature/whatever editions, which of course more expensive and are available for BOTH DA & LA... but we'll see which edition my wallet decides on, haha. Thanks again!
