What Classic PS3 games should i get?

Getting a PS3 from my wife for Christmas along with MW2 (bought from Makro and put away-Christmas can't come quick enough), Uncharted 2 & Fifa10.

Haven't got much money to splash on many other games as I'm looking for a new tv also (current one has several vertical coloured lines covering large part of screen) so would welcome any suggestions for older (and hopefully cheaper) games that i really should play.

I liked Gears of War, Halo, Need for Speed & Fallout 3 on xbox360

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks. Getting Uncharted 2 for xmas. Is it worth getting the first one? Had GTA & MGS for psp and went off them although i appreciate the PS3 is way different to psp.

Infamous looks good & Resistance looks similar to GOW. Will price them later

The first Uncharted is single player only, but it's a very good single player along with the sequel
It has trophies too so it's worth playing
Uncharted 2 will make you ejaculate with it's amazing graphics, story and multiplayer

If you prefer realism and graphics then Gran Turismo 5 Prolouge, it has both single and multiplayer and has a large number of cars per game, i think 12 at a time

If you prefer fun and arcadish racing then i would say Burnout Paradise, as it's such a big game for it's price, you get a lot of free stuff as well as being able to purchase other stuff
Online takedowns never fail to please

I liked Need for Speed for Xbox but really loved Gran Turismo when i had my PS2. I take it DarkKnight that you highly recommend going online? I never did with the xbox but i know COD:MW and other games are best played with multiplayer. Just never fancied getting my backside kicked by teenagers- i'm not the greatest gamer.

Yes i highly recommend getting online on your games, as they offer unlimited replay value compared to probably a few months with non-online games, and with most online games you have more fun playing too especially with GTA4
Do you have a wireless router? if yes then it's so easy to get your PS3 online, and it's free too unlike the Xbox 360

But the PS3's online capabilities are not just for playing games, they are also for the PS Store where you can download everything from Demos to new Themes, and you can use the Internet Browser to search the web.

Getting your ass kicked online is a ritual for all gamers when they start playing, but after getting some experience then you will be kicking their ass instead. Or you can practise on the games single player usually

She's a woman after my own heart xxx

Assassins Creed
Resistance FOM

Both can be picked up on a certain auction site for around a fiver i think

Thanks to everybody. Got a good few games to contemplate. It's my birthday in early January so will get the wife to get me some of them. MW2 & Fifa should keep me occupied till then.

And DarkKnight, i will go online and accept that some 12 year old telling me I'm his bitch is part of the fun:roll: Going to link my PSP to the PS3 and stream my media to it also. Guess there is so much i will have to learn to get the most out of it

Clarity, As i'm getting a PS3 and only getting a few DS games for my wife could you recommend others- she has all the Cooking Mama, Sims & Brain training games alonq with every Theme game possible?

Actually i never have that problem, with the games i play online people either don't talk or their voice has actually broken
I don't play Call of Duty though (the game that most toddlers play)

uncharted 1 is a must get as only a tenner and story sort of continues into uncharted 2

and its nearly as good but not up to the game of the year = UNCHARTED 2

battlefield bad company is also excellent - and cheap!

or better still, why not join lovefilm for 3 months free trial and select GAMES when you signup

obviously not worth doing until a week or so before xmas

Exactly, at £10 for these great games, they are must haves
I remember paying £40+ for every PS2 game back in the days, wether it was newly released or been out for a while, they are worth nothing now

Definitely worth it!
Metal Gear Solid series (consoles) for me is THE best series.
Then probably uncharted.

How could we all forget DEAD SPACE?

Amazing game and only £9.99 at play.com

the free lovefilm trial appeals to my tight side. But again thanks to all. Will check out the prices and hopefully get some in New Year. MW2 going to keep me going for a couple of days and I will play Uncharted 1 first

Sounds like she likes the same ones as I do. There's very few designed for adult females really.

Someone get designing! Make a fortune.

I want the womens murder mystery one and the new Professor Layton, Pandora's Box.

There's loads of other role play games i've enjoyed, Uhm, Like Hotel Dusk?

Also the Mystery Case Files ones? She's prolly done them tho' too xx

But not many new ones around at the moment. xx
