10 Best PS3 Games Ever

The PlayStation 3 didn’t get off to a good start, but the system’s library has grown steadily, not only defining the PS3, but also solidifying the Sony brand as a smash-hit monopoly home. Multi-platform games and exclusive hosts are now included.

To commemorate the 15th anniversary of PS3, we reviewed the PS3 library and compiled a list of the best games. In doing so, we have several factors in mind. First of all, how great was the game when it was actually released, and perhaps just as importantly, how was it defined in the PS3’s life? This does not mean that you have a complete discount on multi-platform games. As you can see from the list, there were a lot of great games that needed to be included. We also considered how these games are currently maintained, but that wasn’t very important to our formula.

With that in mind, there were a lot of games that just missed a cut, but our decision team loved it. believe me. Games like Resistance, Ni no Kuni, Catherine, etc. will hurt someone in the selection panel as much as they don’t appear in the list. But with that in mind, here are the top 10 recommendations for the best PS3 games ever.

10. Ultra Street Fighter 4

Fighting games were a mess before 2009, but Street Fighter 4 has brought the series back to its popular roots, including the more popular cast from Street Fighter 2. Its highly stylized art style is strange, but in the end it was fascinating and online play was so helpful that the genre no longer felt completely like a beginner. This was the basic game of this genre with the release of Ultra Street Fighter 4. It is most considered to be the pinnacle of Street Fighter 4 due to its large roster and strong balance. Since then, its influence has diminished, but it is arguably one of the most important games in the history of this genre and one of the best PS3 games.

9. Ratchet & Crank: Rhagades of Time

Since 2002, the Insomniac Games Ratchet & Clank series has become a powerful and lasting staple of the PlayStation franchise. Debuting on the PS2, the series had six new entries in the PS3 era. For our Bolt, A Crack in Time is the best ratchet and crank game released on the PS3. While the series formulas remained pretty much the same, A Crack in Time brings an inspiring story and the addition of some great gameplay that will be one of the franchise’s best outings.

The ability to experiment with new parts to customize your weapon and the addition of hover boots add even more mechanical depth to your combat and exploration. On top of that, add an inspiring story that really delves into why the title duo have endured so long, and why they have endured for so long. ACrackin Time offers one of the best action games on PS3.

Batman has blown away the potential of the Arkham franchise and created a larger, more immersive sequel that goes beyond the scope of the previous great first entry, Arkham Asylum. Arkham City not only takes a “better” approach, but also finds a truly amazing and fun way to bring different characters from Batman mythology into one incredible adventure.

With Asylum’s core combat, exploration, and stellar voice cast, City finds an ingenious new way to pose a dire challenge to Batman’s path. Kevin Conroy’s Batman and Mark Hamill’s Joker face off from the first game with an incredible villain side mission story, a more diverse world, and a deeper and more moving story. In almost every respect, Arkham City has solidified his view of Rocksteady’s The Dark Knight.

7. LittleBigPlanet 2

LittleBigPlanet 2 significantly improves Media Molecule’s platformer and creation franchise formulas, adding more level design options and the ability to create games in-game. With over 50 levels of story mode, robust and sophisticated customizations have surpassed the original LittleBigPlanet, demonstrating the imaginative potential Media Molecule continues to explore in Dreams.

6. Portal 2

Portal 2 is a perfect example of a sequel. It took the original framework and blew it into a true classic. Writing is more interesting and the campaign is longer and more layered with puzzles and storytelling. With one of the biggest standalone collaboration campaigns ever created, you’ll get the best ever, full of unforgettable moments, from the GLaDOS potato sequence to the final moonshot. It’s been over a decade since I got this great sequel, but it’s hard to imagine exactly how the third entry would outperform this modern classic. Still, I would like to try Valve.

5. Grand Theft Auto V

Rockstar Games sets new standards for open world games with each new release, and GTAV is no exception. The storyline of GTA V’s three protagonists is a huge, beautiful open world full of things to do, exploring every aspect of the world, engaging in some incredible missions, and at the same time roaming. Through Los Santos, it won’t prevent you from crashing your car or looking for Bigfoot. And it hasn’t even begun to describe the highly robust online mode that Rockstars frequently update and continue to offer the type of deep sandbox experience that continues to set high standards.

4. Dark Souls

Dark Souls wasn’t the first Soulsborne game to appear on the PS3 (its honor belongs to the 2009 Demon Souls). From Software’s next Soulsborne was a huge hit, producing franchise success and broader success. Yes, it retains the brutal difficulties of Demon’s Souls, but its impeccable level design, which allows players to explore and die in different parts of the Lord Run Kingdom, looks back to this day. Amazing to explore.

On top of that, the basics of Dark Souls’ combat and progress system, which is the basis of the trilogy, and the amazing lineup of the most memorable boss battles in the series, and Dark Souls wasn’t just a great blueprint to continue. For-it was an unforgettable adventure in itself.

3. Red Dead Redemption

A few years before GTA V’s stunning debut, Rockstar Games goes back in time to create one of the greatest adventures of all time, Red Dead Redemption. The western setting is from a more modern GTA trap as players adopt the life of a virtual gunman riding a horse across parts of North America without losing the tension and thrill of the developer’s more modern setting. Provided a wonderful pace of change. In fact, Red Dead offers one of the greatest rock star stories ever. This is largely due to John Marston, the man at the heart of it all. It’s no wonder that expectations for the Red Dead sequel have reached the height they’ve achieved-a fascinating story, a beautiful world design, and mechanical depth all in one unique way through the Wild West. Created a wonderful journey.

2. Unknown 2: Between thieves

Uncharted 2, the pinnacle of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted PS3 trilogy, has set the benchmark for many of the studio and industry blockbuster action-adventures. Uncharted 2 is probably best remembered in its handful of unforgettable moments-opening when Nathan Drake escapes a wobbling train, being blown into the midst of a collapsing tower, and this A dazzling sequence of moving trains still ranked among the best of the genre. However, Uncharted 2 has solidified the beloved character of the series, even if Nate killed a lot of people.

His relationship between Elena and Sally will be investigated more thoroughly and will introduce Chloe Frazer, one of the franchise’s best characters. The fusion of action and character moments, including the introduction of the series highlight Chloe Frazer, solidifies Naughty Dog’s tips for film storytelling at a level that only the developers themselves can prey on during the PS3’s life. I did.

1. The last of us

Naughty Dog started the PS3 generation with Uncharted and ended with The Last of Us, the pinnacle of storytelling ambitions for that generation’s studio. Although there was no shortage of zombie fiction at the time of release, Naughty Dog felt that the two protagonists made most of it possible, the virus of The Last of Us in a dark, brutal and exciting world. It supported the outbreak from the ground up. The Last of Us won’t work unless players connect to Joel and Ellie, but fortunately, with the tragic scripts and great performances by Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson, these characters survive, take care of, and eventually Learn some difficult truths about each other and the world around them.

Confronting Clickers and Bloaters is as scary as the emotionally difficult choices these characters have to make. TheLastof Us is full of tense and unforgettable moments that bring that horror in spades. But Naughty Dog’s masterpiece is just as important as finding the goodness and beauty of the world, even if it’s the hardest to do because of all its monsters and corrupt civilizations.
