The Top PS3 Games

there were many, many opinions between PS3 aficionados on which games should be ranked among the top. And for Sony’s great console, there were indeed many great titles to choose from. However, through time much of the debate has been relegated to the lower ranks, with the top games being all but obvious. Therefore, regardless of one’s preference on whether these games should be first, second, or third, there is no question that they remain among the top PS3 games for last year and even perhaps for all time.

First up is the jaw-dropping Assassin’s Creed 2. It features Ezio, Altair’s more modern successor, and his forays into 15th century Italy. One thing that is very notable about this game is the versatility of Ezio and the sheer amount of detail found in the environment.

Almost every aspect of Assassin’s Creed 2 has been improved from the first one, including the ability to steal, to swim, and to glide, as well as the various ways of taking down an enemy. This game is certainly one of Ubisoft’s most popular and anticipated series. And while the first installment is already a great achievement in terms of graphics and gameplay, the second one tops it significantly.

Then there is God of War 3. Unlike Assassin’s Creed, this continues the story of the main protagonist of the series: Kratos, who started off from being a mere mortal to achieving the status of a god, and then going on to sate his thirst for revenge on Mount Olympus. Many aspects have also been improved from the original, but the same things which made the previous games so famous, like the gory finishing moves, the painstakingly detailed characters and environments, and the great production values have been preserved. However, with God of War 3, a mini-game has also been included to extend the gameplay.

And last but not least of the top PS3 games, there is Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, hailed by many as the best game for PS3 (or at least, very close to the #1 spot). The series follows the story of Big Boss, this time on his quest to kill Liquid Ocelot, again utilizing some fancy equipment and trusty allies. Many times the game crosses the border between a great movie and a great game, but manages to combine both into one superb package. It wins on many aspects such as the convoluted storyline (to rival many modern action flicks), the amazing graphics, and the intense stealth action. Its included online team shooter is also a great addition to the game.

Needless to say, these are only a few of the top PS3 games for 2010. But for the coming year, there are even more titles being anticipated, such as Uncharted 3, Resistance 3 and others. All the more reason to keep that PS3 console clean and ready to play.
