My Top 10 PS3 Games
With the release of the PS4 and XBone at the end of last year, we’re officially in the new generation of games consoles, and while the previous generation is far from dead (and is unlikely to actually finish up for another few years) now seems a pretty good time to look back at the gems that it spawned.
My console of choice for the previous generation was the PS3, a console which changed a lot of what I thought about video games. I’ve gone from being someone who cares most about gameplay to someone who cares most about story. I truly feel that this generation will be remembered as the one where games finally evolved to be a true narrative art form, with its technical advancements being matched by a growing emphasis on plot and character development.
I’ve also become less intent on owning physical copies of games. Before this generation I was wary of content I wouldn’t actually “own” but in recent years, many of my favourite titles have been indie game available as downloads only and I’ve put aside my dislike of digital content due to the benefits it provides for smaller developers to deliver unusual, unique titles.
So here are my top 10 Ps3 games. I tried not to give myself too many restrictions. I won’t be focusing on exclusives so several of these titles appear on other consoles, but I’ll not be including any HD collections or ports from previous generations of the playstation itself, I’ll also not be including anything I haven’t personally played (before anyone complains I’ve not included The Last of Us or GTAV on my list).
You’re bound to disagree with some of my choices, these are just my personal picks, but be sure to leave your own choices in the comments, I’d love to hear them.
