    I'm picking up a PS3 tommorow.

    If there were maybe one or two games that you would suggest buying, what would you suggest?

    we just bought a ps3 2 weeks ago, and had bought the following games:
    unreal tournament 3
    Little big planet
    need for speed carbon
    lego starwars:the complete saga
    grand theft auto 4
    BUZZ! quiz time tv
    grand turismo 5 prologue

    out of those games, i would say little big planet seeing as there is so much to do plus user created content is always enjoyable.

    and the second one i liked is unreal tournament 3 because ive been addicted to unreal tournament 2004 forever :p

    but the ps3 is awesome :)

    I have had my PS3 for a year and with all the games I have got my two favorite would have to be:

    Call of Duty : Modern Warfare - Awesome multiplayer, short but enjoyable single player.
    &
    Little Big Planet - Awesome all round, create feature is my favorite.

    I would have to recommend these games as a must by for any PS3 owner

    similar to what they said ^

    all depends on what kind of games you like, but best games i've played on PS3 are....

    Metal Gear Solid 4, little big Planet, Dead Space, Rainbow six 1+2, Soul Calibur 4, GRID......

    Ratchet and Clank and Heavenly Sword are probably my favorites so far. Uncharted was also pretty good. LittleBigPlanet isn't as fun as it's been hyped up to be in my opinion.

    Call of Duty 4 is also good, if you haven't played that on any system yet.

    Grand Theft Auto IV - If you liked any of the other GTA games, this one tops them all.

    NCAA Football '09 - Because college football is the best of all the sports games.

    I you dont have R&C by now you should really buy it. Its not difficult or engrossing, but its just an amazing game from start to finish.
    I've started playing Motorstorm: Pacific Rift and its pretty great as well if you are looking for a racing game.
    I would get COD4 for pc if you can. Its much better with a mouse/kb than control pad.
    Other than that i just agree with everyone else here; get Uncharted.

    I'd add in Fallout 3 if you like RPGs and can't get it on 360 or PC.

    Yes. Buy this sometime soon. Its a great JRPG/SRPG. Its sooooo freaking awesome.
    Buy it. The single-player is fun and challenging, but the online is near perfect. Online co-op is 8 players going through a completely different campaign than the single player one, and competitive is 30vs30 with no lag ever. Its pretty amazing. Insomniac has always put out great games, ever since Spyro.

    I'll go ahead and add Siren Blood Curse & Dead Space if you are into survival horror genre.

    A lot of people forget about it but its there for your adventure pleasure.



    Bless

    Err.. so many... here are a few I can think of.

    -Burnout Paradise, Motorstorm 2, or GT5p if you like racing games
    -Skate 2 if you like skateboarding games
    -MGS4 if you like third person action/nice long cut scenes
    -Resistance 2 or CoD:WaW if you like FPS
    -Littlebigplanet if you like games

    I've got a lot more, just those are the ones I've been playing lately.

    BTW: http://skatereel.ea.com/members/2/175675919/1618.aspx

    Edit: Oh, and of course Uncharted. You need to prepare for the epic sequel!

    for some reason, i disliked resistance 2's competitive multiplayer. co-op was really fun. but compared to other multiplayer games out there, R2's just seems too average. it was somewhat fun at first but there just wasn't enough to keep me playing. that's just my opinoin though.
