The 10 Best PS3 Games of All Time

PlayStation 3 changed the gaming world in 2006 when it was released. It offered incredible graphics, an amazing lineup of games, and a wide range of other multimedia features. The PS3 has many great titles, and here are 10 of the best PS3 games ever made.

1. Uncharted 2

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is a classic. It’s an action-adventure game, and the second in the Uncharted series of games. The first game was titled Drake’s Fortune, which you may have heard about if you’ve played it (you should). Uncharted 2 is considered by many gamers to be the best game ever made on PS3.

The story follows Nathan Drake as he searches for an ancient mythical city that has been lost for centuries – Shambhala (which actually exists in real life). Along the way, he has to deal with mercenaries, thieves, and all sorts of enemies who are trying to kill him and take whatever it is they want from him.

2. The Last of Us

Storyline:

A fungal pandemic has spread across the world and infected most of humanity. A few people have been left unaffected, dubbed “spitters” because they can spit out a poisonous liquid that kills those around them. The remaining humans are now struggling to survive, hunted by both mutated monsters and the infected who desire their blood. Joel is one of these survivors searching for his missing daughter Ellie in an abandoned city called Boston.

Gameplay:

The Last of Us features third-person combat in which you use guns or melee weapons to dispense with your foes. It also includes stealth elements that allow you to sneak up on enemies when attacking them from behind or using clever tactics like throwing bottles to distract them so that they won’t hear your footsteps while moving through an area undetected. There are even melee attacks against humans so if all else fails then it may be better just jump on top of someone’s head instead!

Characters:

Joel will act as your avatar throughout most gameplay sequences; however, he can only move around by getting hit by enemies or environmental hazards such as falling off ledges so sometimes he might need healing items too! Other characters include Tess (your friend), Tommy (an ally), Bill (a survivor leader) etcetera…

3. Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption is an open-world action-adventure PS3 game developed by Rockstar San Diego and published by Rockstar Games. It was released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 18, 2010. The game’s story follows outlaw Arthur Morgan, a member of the Van der Linde gang as they rob and steal to survive while avoiding government forces, rival gangs, and the law.

Red Dead Redemption is a third-person shooter where players can use various weapons (both long-range guns like rifles and shotguns, or short-range weapons such as pistols). Players are able to fire their weapons while riding on horseback without dismounting first; they can also use dead bodies as cover during firefights with enemies.

In addition to firearms, each player carries several throwing knives which can be used to kill enemies silently or at close range without alerting other enemies in nearby areas (although killing an enemy this way will still cause nearby allies who haven’t been seen yet to know something happened).

4. Journey

Journey is a beautiful PS3 game, both visually and aurally. The music is relaxing, but also very memorable and inspiring. It has a unique art style that you won’t find in any other game, which makes it stand out from the crowd of games on the market today.

While Journey doesn’t have much gameplay depth or replayability (you can beat it in under 2 hours), what makes it great is how it feels to play. Rather than focusing on combat or puzzles like most other games do, Journey, focuses on exploring its beautiful world while discovering new environments and interacting with strangers along the way. This creates an experience unlike anything else you’ve played before—and one that you’ll want to go back to again and again!

5. God of War 3

6. Heavy Rain

The game is divided into four chapters, each of which can be completed in about an hour or two. Because of its short length and focus on narrative rather than gameplay, Heavy Rain has a very high replayability factor—you’ll want to see how things play out differently based on your choices. The controls are intuitive and easy to use, making it ideal for pretty much anybody who wants to experience the thrill of this gripping thriller firsthand.

The story itself is compelling enough to keep you hooked throughout the entire game. The characters have depth and personality (including many red herrings), and their development over time creates an emotional connection between you as the player and what’s happening in front of you on screen.

7. Mass Effect 2

Mass Effect 2 is a science fiction action role-playing video game developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in January 2010.

Mass Effect 2 is the second installment of the Mass Effect series and a sequel to the original Mass Effect. The game’s story takes place after a massive invasion by an ancient alien race called the Reapers in 2183 CE. Five years later, colonists from Earth travel to Mars when they discover that it was habitable after being covered with water millions of years ago; however, they find themselves under attack from another alien race known as Collectors when their leader goes missing while investigating an ancient space station known as “The Collector Base”.

The player assumes control of Commander Shepard who must save humanity from these threats while solving problems that have arisen due to his/her involvement with Cerberus (a pro-human organization).

8. Dark Souls

Dark Souls is an action role-playing video game developed and published by FromSoftware and Namco Bandai Games, released in Japan on September 22, 2011, for PS3 and Xbox 360. An expanded edition was created for Microsoft Windows, OS X, Linux, and Nintendo Switch which includes all content from the console versions as well as additional features like new enemies and areas. The game has a spiritual successor named Dark Souls II.

Dark Souls is set in the fictional kingdom of Lordran, where players take on the role of an undead chosen to succeed Gwyn as lord of cinder to light the fading bonfires that maintain balance within the world. Players travel through interconnected worlds with many routes back to earlier areas but can permanently die from falling off ledges or being killed by enemies without access to a checkpoint (save points).

The game’s challenging nature is partially mitigated by its learning curve; there are many different player character builds known as “builds” that are viable in any given area at any given time depending on how a player chooses their stats at character creation or how they level up during playtime

9. Batman Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City is an open-world action-adventure video game developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the PS3 and Xbox 360 video game consoles, as well as a Microsoft Windows version, with a Wii U version released in November 2012. Based on the DC Comics superhero Batman, it is the sequel to the 2009 video game Batman: Arkham Asylum and follows Batman as he delivers The Joker to Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon for trial but instead finds himself trapped in Arkham City, an isolated area of Gotham that has been walled off from the rest of the city. He must uncover its secrets while protecting inmates from its founder Hugo Strange’s plans to control them using his special brand of chemical warfare.

10. Resistance 3

Over the course of the PS3 lifetime, the Resistance series progressed from a passable launch title to an underwhelming sequel to a first-person shooter masterpiece. The fact that Resistance 3, the first-person shooter masterpiece mentioned in the previous sentence, marked the conclusion of the series is unfortunate.

R3 just gets a lot of things just perfectly right. This game stands out from others because of the unique method in which it blends together a backdrop based on an alternate reality version of the 1950s with insane, but satisfying, alien weaponry and the heartwarming story of a father who is trying to defend his family.

In addition, each stage is well balanced; there are very few if any, dull spots and the battles are more fluid than a seagull that has been plucked from the Gulf of Mexico. Every time you think you have it figured out, the tale will throw another situation or difficulty at you, compelling you to adjust your strategy and discover even more of the game’s depth and breadth of gameplay. Which is something you will gladly do in order to bring Joe Capelli’s tragic yet uplifting story to its exciting climax.
