Top 5 Sony Playstation 3 Games

Ever since the release of the first Playstation, Sony has been setting the bar extremely high; furthermore, Sony’s Playstation 3 sets a standard for video gaming that cannot be touched by other consoles. This standard is definitely set by the astonishing graphics, amazing sound, user-friendly interface, and never-ending online capabilities. I now pose a question for you: where would video game consoles be without great games? The answer is probably close to nowhere! The role of games in a video game console is beyond massive; they will ultimately determine how many of those amazing features of the console get noticed. For instance, how would you know about the full graphical and internet capabilities if you were playing a game similar to “pong” on Sony’s Playstation 3? There are many games that were released for Playstation 3 that can be considered nearly legendary; here is a list of the 5 games for Playstation 3 that I consider to warrant the money that you spend on them through their amazing qualities.

Final Fantasy XIII

If you are a fan of Final Fantasy games, then this is the game for you. It is as if they took the best qualities from every single Final Fantasy game and combined them all into one game. This game will keep you busy for a long time; the main story line has an estimated completion time of around 60 hours, and the 64 missions following the story add roughly another 60 hours to that total. Anybody that enjoys a game that will keep them busy for months to come with various weapon and character upgrades should definitely add Final Fantasy XIII to their wish list.

Fifa 10

Up until I had played this game I was in belief that all fifa soccer video games were roughly the same; to prove this, I was still playing Fifa 07 when Fifa 10 came out, and enjoying every moment of my 3 year old game. However, Fifa 10 has seemed to revamp the style of the game with new features and online capability. This game is any soccer fanatic`s dream because of the amount of teams, players, and rosters that are customizable. This game allows you to feel like you are the coach of the team going through the season with big dreams of winning the world cup. This takes all of the old Fifa games that seemed have an amazing reputation at one point in time, and makes them all seem as if they were simply “okay” games. Anybody that loves a game with great replay value should definitely pick up a copy; this game will still be entertaining to play for years to come.

Red Dead Redemption

This was probably one of the most anticipated games of the year; after the release, I figured that I would try it. After playing the game for about 6 hours straight I came to the realization that this game was so great that it was addictive! This game allows the player to work in a suggestive manner in that it gives them a large open environment to work with; the player can make their character do nearly anything. Players can also choose to gain negative or positive morality, which opens up a whole new can of worms for the opportunity to progress in whatever direction that you choose. The most amazing thing about this game is the ability for cooperative play throughout the various missions in the story; furthermore, some of the missions must be completed through cooperative play which forces the players to interact with others, and use the full capabilities of the game. Rockstar Games really did an amazing job on this one; this game stands a good chance at being a contender for the Number 1 Game of the Year award for 2010.

Assassins Creed II

Controlling Ezio Auditore in renaissance Italy, you seem to feel as if you are actually in his shoes when playing the game. Having not played the first Assassins Creed game, I was a bit lost during the beginning of the story; however, as the game progresses, the flashback of the old storyline allow you to fill in the pieces to the puzzle. The main storyline progresses pretty quickly, and can be beaten in about 30 hours; but the extra tasks such as collecting all of the feathers, armour, weapons, viewpoints, and missions will keep you occupied for days on end. The environment is pretty open-ended, and the controls are fairly basic, making this game easy to learn and adapt to. The thing that really amazed me while playing through this game was that they only use one button to control the free-running sequences, which is the main way of getting around throughout the game; however, with the addition of various joystick directions, the developers have allowed you to be able to do a plethora off manoeuvres that will take you quite the while to master.

God Of War III

After thinking that God of War II was the best game ever, God of War III was released and took over the title! For some reason I tend to resort to this game to let my angers out; there is something about smashing, killing, and devouring other characters in the game that gives the player a sense of relief. There is quite the focus on the story in this game, but a lot of focus on the game play. The developers wanted to make sure that you stayed interested while having fun when playing the game. They definitely took it to the next level when they created this game, making it one of the games on my top 5 list. God of War III is a must have for any God of War fan.

Sony Playstation 3 is an incredible video game console with capabilities that were non-existent before its release. Games are the guts of any video game console, and although Playstation 3 has a plethora of released games, the ones on the top of my list are: Final Fantasy XIII, Fifa 10, Red Dead Redemption, Assassins Creed II, and God of War III.
