Must Have PlayStation 3 Games
Sony’s impressive PlayStation 3, with its Blu-ray player and wireless connectivity, handily fills the home media niche. But the heart of the system belongs, as always, to the games, and those who desire the most out of their time with their PS3 should stock games from a variety of genres to fend off boredom. While new PS3 games are introduced frequently, several standout games have risen to the top of the heap.
Little Big Planet
Little Big Planet is one of the most imaginative and open-ended games ever created. Not only is Sackboy, your character, completely customizable, but so is your environment. Story mode takes your Sackboy through the levels created by the game’s designers, but the revolutionary level creator tool allows you to recreate parts of the game and customize them for others to view and play.
Fallout 3 places you in the year 2277 in a post-nuclear wasteland. The game offers a great variety of intricate quests or the ability to explore the well-executed graphics of the Washington DC-area ruins on your own. Choices abound, such as which side you will ally yourself with, and your actions will affect not only the environment around you but also the capabilities of your character play as you progress.
Sony’s Greatest Hit Assassin’s Creed takes you back to the time of the Crusades, where your character belongs to a covert group of assassins. The game has endless possibilities in exploration of the Medieval world, as well as multiple combat methods.
Call of Duty: World at War
The gritty and fast-paced Call of Duty: World at War accommodates up to four in the engaging multi-player mode. Taking place during World War II, the storyline will satisfy fans of shooter-style games, even if the game mechanics are a bit familiar.
Prince of Persia
In the Prince of Persia, your focus is more on bringing out the good in a corrupt world rather than mass destruction of enemies. The adventure-style gameplay as a mischievous nomad pulls you into the involving storyline. The sheer visual beauty of the game and the intricate design of the levels helps to compensate for the relatively easiness of the gameplay.
