Recommend Some Good PS3 Games

Postby Ian on Thu Oct 02, 2008 1:39 pm

I finally bit the bullet and bought a PS3 this week. I got it primarily as a Blu-ray player but also to play games like the Force Unleashed and GTA 4. Are there any other good games that you guys/girls recommend?

I got Rock Band for my birthday from my inlaws. That will probably keep my wife and I busy for awhile.

I absolutely love SKATE, but I am a skateboarder, so I am biased. If you like skateboarding at all, you will love the game. It's about the only game I play besides Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

I'm going to pick up Shaun White Snowboarding when it comes out. It looks pretty interesting. You can snowboard with other people online.

Right now I'm eyeing up Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe and LittleBigPlanet as my next possible PS3 games...

Okay.. the number of guitars is growing at an exponential rate at my house. Instead of them laying all over the floor, I'd like to hang them on the wall or put them in some sort of rack. Does anyone know of a company that makes this sort of thing?

No, but that's a good idea! Maybe we should start selling some. 8)

On a related note: Rockband makers finally issued an update so that you can use the Guitar Hero guitar on the Rockband game on the PS3! w00t! Unfortunately Guitar Hero makers did not release a similar update, so you still can't use a Rockband guitar to play Guitar Hero on the PS3. Guitar Hero software company = fired!!!!

Really? The Rock Band guitar works with the Aerosmith version of Guitar Hero.

I looked into racks for the PS3 guitars and I'm probably better off going to a music store and buying one for a real guitar.

Thanks to a tip from Wes, I picked up SKATE and Warhawk for $30 from Walmart.com. I should be busy for awhile.

Yeah, I was pretty pissed when I first bought Guitar Hero III and Rock Band in January of this year. At the time, neither guitar was compatible with the other game. I guess they fixed that with the Aerosmith version of GH, but not GH III. Lame.
