Recommended Games to Start PS3 Library

33 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I'm thinking about buying a PS3 and building up a library of games for it. I've been using PS NOW for my PS3 game needs, but the lag is unbearable. I've already got a PS4, so I probably won't buy anything that's cross platform (i.e. The Last of Us). I'd also like to avoid games with unobtainable trophies. 

 

That being said, what should I buy?

 

Thanks,

Ask a PS3 and PS4 Owner I'd say don't buy too many games for older gen console only buy as much as you can consume. I had my lesson learned hard way. So I will say only buy games that are truely PS3 Exclusive and with no remastered version exists for PS4. The most impressive PS3/X360 Exclusive would be "Red Dead Redemption GoTY" another one I'll suggest is "The Saboteur". I know you will say I won't be buying PS4 but trust me you may buy it in future when prices drop and when you buy PS4 you can play all those remasters in better quality and have overall better experience. I had a way better experience of Uncharted 2 and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood on PS4. I know this advice is bit unconventional and not what you have asked for but I'm just putting up what I personally experienced. Have fun with your PS3.

 

PS: I still have my PS3 500 GB and I use it for playing games.

OP said none with unobtainable trophies. At a minimum that means Grand Turismo 5 and the original Ghostbusters are out. And Sleeping Dogs is available on PS4. RIF. 

 

OP, I read your request fully and the following games all have trophies (none of which are unobtainable) and are not available on the PS4. I would recommend:

 

Splatterhouse

Demon's Souls

Infamous 2( InFamous 1 is good too but them blast shards . . .)

Xcom: Enemy Unknown

Mass Effect 2

Hitman: Absolution

Spec Ops: The Line

Ride to Hell(this game sucks pretty hard core but I thought it was so bad it was good)

Kingdoms of Amalur

Ni no Kuni

@Sigma999 has a good list, you might wanna priorities Demons Souls.  There's a 1/200 drop rate item in Demons Souls that comes from a mob that spawns once per world, assuming its around a minute per kill that would mean you're basically running in circles for over three hours not knowing when you'll get the drop. If you're online someone can drop it (pure bladestone) for you and save you the hassle.

OP should then just forget about the PS3 entirely then. The majority of the servers will be shutting down within the next year or so.

 

and for the rest of your little poke...

Now would be the perfect time to play the God of War series since GoW 4 comes out in April. I've been replaying 1-3 and man those games are still so much fun! 😎

Just get someone to drop you a pure bladestone and a pure darkmoonstone and that saves huge grind ;_: if you get those trophies you save like 30% of the platinum time if not more, it sucks if 30% of playing the game is running in circles lol

 

those two trophies I REALLY would recommend getting if you ever do want to platinum it when servers go offline, rest aren't really sped up by online (unless you wanna drop every single weapon or ring in the game...)  maybe my rng with darkmoonstone was just bad, but average luck will take you like 5 hours to get pure bladestone
