Re: The Best PS3 Exclusive Games?

Are the Ratchet/Clank and Jax/Dexter games like Mario games? Non-shooting platformers?

^ Jak and Daxter is like Banjo-Kazooie, Mario, and Crash Bandicoot, while Ratchet and Clank is like those games combined with Bionic Commando and Donkey Kong 64.

My second hand understanding is that the Uncharted games have a really good story and are just solid all around...?

I finally unpacked my PS3. NO WIRELESS CONTROLLER :sobs:
What do you mean no wireless controller? I don't even think there's such a thing as an official Sony wired PS3 controller?
I played the first three levels of Resistance 1. I figure I should start with the oldest game or I'll never play it. It's very much a launch game with barely next gen graphics, but it's alright. I'm hoping its a very short game so I can burn through it fast.
I thought Resistance was a turd at the time. Keep in mind I had just played Gears of War so...

UC3 was gorgeous to look at, but the story and gameplay were kind of meh. It was fun enough, I guess, but it wasn't a worthy successor to UC2.

Yep, I agree. It was a fun and gorgeous game, but the story wasn't nearly as good. Uncharted 2 also felt like a much longer game by comparison, whereas Uncharted 3 felt like it ended rather abruptly. Not nearly as satisfying either. And that ending?? Pft. When one goes on a long journey, I expect more than a simple QTE to end it. One does not just QTE into Mordor!

In all seriousness, I know there were lots of people that hated the boss fight in 2, but I felt it was satisfying.
There are rumors that Sony rushed Naughty Dog to get the game out (like how EA supposedly rushed Bioware and Mass Effect 3).

Based on all the random stuff that gets brought up and then forgotten during U3, it feels more like a first draft than a final draft. They needed to trim a lot of fat off the story and polish other parts. It's still a game that's leaps and bounds above others, just the weakest Uncharted game. It's like how Star Trek movies get compared mostly to each other.

Agreed, and I wouldn't doubt it. It does feel somewhat rushed. Like you say, there are a lot of things brought up in it that just lead to nowhere, kind of like Cutter disappearing and never being mentioned again. Kind of makes me wish they would have released a director's cut version that fleshes everything out better.

And yes, to answer Mr Light, they are rather solid games. In fact, perhaps one of the best exclusive franchises ever. I'd start with the second one and go from there.

To the OP: buy Heavy Rain ASAP; you won't regret it. This game is seriously unlike anything I've ever played before, and I've played a lot of videogames in my 33 years of life. It also just dethroned Shadow of the Colossus as my favorite videogame EVER.

No, plenty of shooting going on in the R&C games...

The R&C games are definitely more about shooting than about platforming. And they're all awesome.

Besides the obvious titles like Uncharted, The Last of Us, inFamous... I personally think every single PS3 owner should play Valkyria Chronicles at some point. VC is still one of my favourite games ever.

^I really ought to get back to that at some point. I enjoyed it, but ran smack into the vertical difficulty curve. Indeed, it looks like the game is designed so that you really need to grind the training missions over and over to get levelled and geared up to progress. :/

^ I never had to do any sort of power-leveling and I got As or higher in most of the mission.

I was doing fine until I hit that mission with the giant tank that killed half my squad, including some of my best soldiers. Bit of a struggle after that.

Re: The Best PS3 Exclusive Games?

If you like RPGs than Valkyria Chronicles is a great choice. Other than that, I think all the great ones have already been listed. I would suggest taking a look at some of the PS1 and PS2 games available for download on the Playstation store. Also become a member of Playstation Plus. The free games they offer are usually high quality and makes the 49 bucks a year worth it.

EDIT: Also, keep an eye out for the recently announced Persona 5. It should be coming out sometime next year.

This. Heavy Rain is a phenomenal game. Very different to anything else on the market. Very mature and adult storytelling. It's like a David Lynch movie.

The writing could've been a lot better, but that's just me. I always notice things like that. It was a unique experience for what it was and I was engaged the whole time.

Put it this way, Mr Light.... you control four characters and if one of them gets killed, the storyline and game continues without them. The stakes are pretty high in this game because what you do or don't do directly affects the storyline.
