Found 13th Sep 2009
I have finally taken the plunge and ordered a PS3. I went for a bare bones package on the basis that I would like to choose which titles i get. Also the PS3 is mainly going to replace the Aging Sony BDP-s300 under my TV.

So I realize that I will need a PS3 Remote (about £15 on a deal on here) and a second controller (gonna cost me about £30 looking on here again) but what games should I go for?

waiting for GT 5 (but will be checking Asda for a £5 GT5 Prolouge) and will probably get Grand Theft Auto however I need suggestions for other games (suitable to play in front of a 5 year old). Price is a big factor (haven't even told the wife i bought it yet)
Suggestions please...

GRID

Dead Space

fifa09

Infamous

best bet is to look here at the reviews for description and scores

metacritic.com/gam…es/

then look here for best price

gamestracker.com/

Uncharted
Ratchet and Clank

2 of the best PS3 exclusives imo and you should be able to pick them up for less than £15 each.

GTA is suitable to play in front of a five year old??? CSImans suggestions are good but KZ2 has a lot of bad language

Little Big Planet can be had for a tenner - Motorstorm for a fiver preowned at GAME, or the sequel for about 15 notes. Ratchet and Clank you should be able to pick up for around a tenner too.

Hmmm, that really narrows down your options. The majority of the PS3s best games are more adult themed.

I really liked Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, I'm not sure why actually looking back on it - as it has some terrible flaws. Just has got something good going for it I guess. Bear in mind (I think) I recall it having the occassional swear word in the cut scenes and involves alot of killing - the most offensive thing about the game is the A.I. tbh.

LittleBIGPlanet, 'nuff said. Just be careful that the said five year old doesn't take over your PS3!

Killzone 2, fabulous game, again it has lots of swearing and violence so maybe one for when no-ones around.

I personally love all the Guitar Hero/Rock Band games, they have any swearing edited out so should be ok.

Singstar games - good fun.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is terrific - if too short imo. I think it has some swearing in it, and is rather scary for a youngster. A must buy once it's cheaper for you

The Motorstorm games.

PES (if you're after a proper football game) :thumbsup:
