#1 Portal 2 Meta Score 95
Portal 2 was a great critically acclaimed game from Valve which released on the PS3 with steam works built in. This allowed players to play the game on their PS3 or on their PC. This game is great and if you haven’t gotten a chance to play this as of yet, you are seriously missing out. The thought process that the game requires to progress is absolutely amazing and the story is great. It’s a brain twister and it requires lot of thinking at times. The co-op is also a plus for you and a buddy.
#2 Gears of war 3 Meta Score 91
Epic games climatic end to the Gears of War 3 saga is an absolute gut wrenching thrill ride. The game also has a great action sequences and the action is enough to make this a great live action film in the future. Marcus Fenix and company must protect the earth. You will use an array of weapons and teamwork to achieve this goal. If you’re skeptical about this game just check out the review and video of our very own BlackBible playing the game for the first time.
#3 Uncharted 3 Meta score 92
When you mention Naughty Dog there are several franchises that come to mind. Games like Crash bandicoot, Jak and Daxter and of course the uncharted series are what Naughty Dog is known for. Uncharted 3 is a great game and that isn’t just to hype it up. You can check out the review I wrote on the game here, or you can miss out on greatness.
#4 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Meta Score 96
This open world RPG is a great title for anyone to own. It’s being herald as one of the greatest games this generation and is looking to be an absolute beast in terms of sales. This sequel to the 2006 game of the year is one that must not be taken lightly. There is a ton of stuff that you can do in the game. You can get married, kill chickens and even wreak havoc on towns. This game is great as reviewers are going absolutely crazy about the game. If you played oblivion and love it you might want to check this title out.
#5 Batman Arkham City Meta Score 96
Much can be said about Batman but one thing stands out to mind. This game is absolutely gorgeous. Graphics are one thing but the amount of presentation that goes into a game like this makes it even better than you could have hoped for. I know that there are a ton of Batman fans out there that are thanking Rocksteady for the great work they have done with this game. It is a fan’s dream come true.
#6 Everybody Dance GFN Score 80
I recently got a chance to review Everybody Dance for the PS3 and I have to say that I was very pleased with what I played. I know you must be thinking that I am trying to sell this title to you all, but that’s not my job. This was just a fun title to play and if you haven’t gotten a chance to check it out, I suggest that you do so. It is fun to play and it’s a great party game for friends.
#7 Infamous 2 Meta Score 83
Cole Mcgrath is back and he is twice as strong, twice as crafty, and he has to make way harder decisions. Infamous 2 is a great action adventure title for all gamers. This is a game that I feel is really special and all gamers, have to at the very least experience this great title from sucker punch games. The good and bad paths you take are perfect for the holiday season. Cole Mcgrath is either naughty or nice the choice is yours.
#8 UFC personal Trainer GFN Score 10/10
Thanksgiving has just passed and with the holidays coming up everyone seems to putting on a few pounds here and there. Now if you’re looking for a new year’s resolution and you don’t know what to choose. Well I have just the right game for you to play on a snow filled day. UFC personal trainer is a great title loved by our very own Blackbible. This title has the makings to make you into a great fighter and help lose the weight you want with the proper dieting and exercise.
#9 Littlebigplanet 2 Meta Score 92
LittleBigPlanet 2 is a title that most PS3 owners take pride in. This game is known for creating the play create and share mantra for gamers. If you know how you want to create a level than LittleBigPlanet 2 is the way to go. This is a great family fun game for adults’, kids, and tweens. If you’re really nice Santa might just drop this title in your stocking as a stuffer.
#10 Forza Motorsport 4 Meta Score 91
Forza Motorsport 4 is a great racing simulator game that rivals Gran Turismo 5. It’s pushing the envelope in all that it does from cars, gameplay, and level design. Did I also mention that you can use the kinect as a steering wheel to drive the car with no peripheral? This title is great and the score that is posted with it, is proof of that. If you haven’t played this game I suggest that you act like a little nice school girl or boy because this is a title you don’t want to miss out on.
Now all these games are great and have received rave reviews by our writers and others around the industry as provided above by the Metacritic scores. These are titles that you will not regret purchasing; I will stake my reputation on that. As long as you’re a fan of the genre you won’t be disappointed.
