    I'm a Nintendo boy at heart so I don't know what's good for this system. What games do you guys enjoy? I don't care about high ranking games, I want to know what you guys like to play.

    So far, I have Prince of Persia, The Biggest Little Planet, and DBZ: Burst Limit.

    lol its little big planet! i've bolded the game names if u dont want to read though all my bullshit

    anyways, what kind of games do u enjoy most? theres tons to choose from. if you were open to anything i'd recomend one of the call of dutys for the online play mostly, uncharted: drake's fortune is a great action/adventure game and the sequal is going to hit later this year, infamous and prototype are both coming out within a month or so and they both look awesome, infamous is a ps3 exclusive however i think prototype will be the better game (they are similar open world games). also metal gear solid 4 was a freakin masterpiece. resident evil 5 is a great addition to the series if you've played the other ones on gamecube. theres so many games to choose from i could go on for ever.

    If you want a shooter get Killzone 2. What a game.

    -Metal Gear Solid 4 - a masterpiece as Senses said.
    -Burnout Paradise - an excellent racing game with a lot of support from the developers.
    -Fallout 3 (or Oblivion) - if you want an RPG fix.
    -Bioshock - a superb, dark and mysterious first-person shooter.

    LOL Sorry for the name butchering.

    I'm definitely going to check out Metal Gear Solid 4. People talk about that game a lot. Hmm.. I have W@W for my Wii and I'm enjoying it. =) Resident Evil scares me but I might hop on the bandwagon sometime soon. What games do you recommend for some co-op fun with my friends?

    @Lewi T: and with Bioshock 2 on the way, Bioshock is a good buy

    Army of Two is a good Co-op shhoter. kinda short but really good.

    Resident Evil 5 is a great co-op game, as is Army For Two mentioned above.

    And I can not stress the greatness of Oblivion enough, probably my favorite game of all time. It's basically a classic RPG with a decent fighting scheme set in the medieval ages, complete with all your magic, swords, axes, etc. But, it is so much than that, really outstanding game. Very high replay value as well. Fallout 3 is pretty good too, but not even close to the likes of Oblivion in my opinion, though it depends on whether you're into a post-apocalyptic, futuristic setting or a medieval fantasy one.

    And all that in the light that you may not even be interested at all! I recommend everything that's been said so far, and the future definitely looks bright for the PS3. MAG, Prototype, God of War 3, Assassin's Creed 2, among others. Your Wii won't be happy you got it, but you most certainly will.

    i think its important i stress this, RESIDENT EVIL 5 IS NOT SCAREY. they took all the horror elements out (bad move IMO) however it is an excellent co-op game with TONS of replay value, unlocables, vs. mode, mercenaries mode (like a survival mode). its just awesome.

    i'd also like to say Fallout 3 is one of the best games ever created. its an awesome RPG and i've got close to 80 or 90 total hours logged and im still playing. so much better than oblivion in terms of side missions, game play, story, graphics, immersion. i just cant say enough good things about this game, u have to experience it to understand.

    and i saw army of two thrown around in this thread a little bit, its a fun game, probably can beat it in 6-8 hours if u have a buddy to play with, but it is good and the sequal was recently announced and it looks crazy good so u might want to get AoT, its about 25 dollars i think.

    finally, to answer ur ? about the MGS4 story, i did not play any of the previous games, so yeah i was a little lost in the story but it was still compelling and if you go on youtube and search for videos theres a ton that brief u on the MGS story up til end of 3. some things u may not know about MGS4-half hour cut scenes, largest game ever created (took up all the space on a blu-ray disc and they even had to cut some things out), awesome sound track and graphics, tons of ways to play a mission-you can even beat the entire game without alerting any enemies or firing a single bullet.

    sorry this was so long lol

    Wow, you guys seem pretty excited about the PS3. I've decided to get MGS4 first.. As for my second game, I'm leaning toward either Oblivion or Fallout 3... That's a hard choice. I appreciate the help guys! It's good to see some true Sony fans in here.

    Good choice man! Excellent games you won't regret getting, great unique shooter game that has a movie element and epic storyline as well as graphics and cutscenes (MGS4), and the others are great for RPG and real-time action. It's everything Runescape fails to do.

    Twilight youre not a FPS kind of guy right? Well if not I have the 3 must haves for gamers like you.

    Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (Trust me, you'll fall in love with this one)
    Little Big Planet (Sonys new little mascot, Sack Boy, replaces Crash Bandicoots spot :lol:)
    Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (I don't suggest buying this unless you're familiar with the MGS storyline, which on it's own makes some of the most complex storylines out there for any type of media look like a kindergarten coloring book. In short, it's confusing as hell and you'll need to play the older ones to understand any of it. You can download Metal Gear Solid (PS1 version) on your PS3 through the PSN system. And if your PS3 is PS2 capatible just get MGS 2&3. Sounds like a hassel I know but trust me when I say all MGS games are timless classics and you'll have a blast playing them even if they are outdated.)

    if your chosing between fallout and oblivion i think you'll be better off going with fallout. its made by the same developer and has a lot of similarities but they have improved the oblivion format so much its just the better choice.

    personally i think the oblivion story/side quests are lame.

    Agreed. Sure, it has some impressively gorey zombies and scenes, but it's not scary at all. The game is still a LOT of fun, though.

    I played (descending in favored order):

    Valkyria Chronicles - Blends third person shooter elements with tactical roleplaying. Beautiful Anime-Sketch style visuals and a solid storyline done in chapters. Each chapter has some short, but enjoyable cutscenes and then a battle near the end.
    You manage your 20-man squad with a large selection of versatile characters. Assigning and discharging characters based on certain perks or even certain preferences to gear up for the next fight. You also must train your squad with gained experience use the exp to get new skills. Weapon upgrades are bought with gained funds. Then there is huge rack-Selvaria... for all of the salivating fifteen year old fanboys. DLC is awesome as well.

    Disgaea 3 - Insanely beyond the impossible tactical RPG 'bout demons. Mercilessly parodies certain things and an affectionate parody of RPGs in general. Dood! You don't need to play the other two really.

    Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction - It's good, nuff said.

    Uncharted - Played the demo. I want it. So good. Drake's a funny guy really. Slight jerk, but more of a funny snarker really. The fighting is fluid. Story is quirky. Movie quality in my opinion. Naughty Dog is really good at that though.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 - Masterpiece... Regardless if you've played the others.

    Killzone 2 - Demo. Great shooter. Plot... Do I care... It's a shooter!

    Little Big Planet - Fun level editor and sidescroller. Yeah, it's cool. Didn't play too much though.

    Bust Limit - Sucks. Still on my shelf unfortunately.

    Naruto - Rented. Pretty boring really. Honestly, the open game world is pointless. The fighting is pretty good though. With that I say, just stick with the demo.

    Games I look forward to:

    Tales of Vesperia PS3 - That is, if it comes stateside. A redone edition of Tales of Vesperia on the 360. New character, more story, a gay new logo, you know how it works. Japanese fanboys are burning their 360s. I'm saving up for more Vesperia.

    Get Fallout 3. I recently started playing it again and I put 110+ hours on it in the past week and half.... It's awesome and I have no life but I don't mind because the game is awesome.
