Good news for Playstation 3 owners. When the PS3 first hit the market there didn’t seem to be quite the selection of games that the Xbox 360 had but 2011 could be the PS3’s best year by far with seven huge titles that will all be exclusive to the Playstation 3. These are the 10 games that every Playstation 3 owner should play in 2011.
The PS3 game that I’m looking forward to the most is the newest game in the Twisted Metal franchise. The best car combat game of all-time returns in 2011 and while gamers will still be able to enjoy the regular one player mode, it seems that the Twisted Metal crew will also bring a few new modes of play as well.
The Uncharted franchise is one that is rapidly growing in popularity. Uncharted 2 was one of the best games of the past few years and the rumors involving the Uncharted movie adaptation has shone the spotlight on this series. Uncharted 3 should only add to the praise this franchise has been receiving.
Many Playstation fans were disappointed that Last Guardian was not released 2010 but I doubt they are angry enough to pass it up in 2011. I’m not easily impressed by video game trailers but Last Guardian is an exception. It also seems to be a pretty unique game as the player will control a boy that is developing some sort of friendship with a giant flying creature.
It’s hard to believe it took us four games to get the first shooter game but Resistance 3 is a highly anticipated sequel to the Resistance series. The first Resistance game was the Playstation 3’s best-selling launch title and Resistance 2 was a big hit as well. Resistance 3 should provide a nice break from all the Call of Duty games.
infamous 2 is the sequel to the 2009 open world hit of the same name. Cole MacGrath is back as the main character but infamous 2 will be set in a new city. It is being said that the Playstation Move will be compatible with infamous 2, giving this game a different flavor than both the original game and the other games on this list.
LittleBigPlanet 2 is the sequel to one of the surprise hits of 2008. LittleBigPlanet 2 is both a platformer and puzzle game. Though it certainly is suitable for adults, it is also one of the few games on this list for young children. LittleBigPlanet 2! It’s littler. It’s bigger. It’s…planeter?
Killzone 3 is another shooter for the Playstation 3 to tide you over until the next Call of Duty game. There are two new features that make Killzone 3 an exciting release. The first is that this will be the first Killzone game presented in 3D. The second is that Killzone 3 will be compatible with the Playstation Move.
Batman: Arkham City
Batman: Arkham City is not an exclusive for the Playstation 3 but should be on the wish list of any video gamer. The first Arkham game was the best game of 2009 and the second looks like it could up the ante even more.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds
There might be some Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat fans that will prefer those games just because they are a fan of the series but there if there is no specific fighting game that you are attached to then Marvel vs. Capcom should be the fighting game to play in 2011.
Metal Gear Solid Rising
Normally a Metal Gear release would be at the very top of a Playstation preview article but the latest installment of Metal Gear Solid seems lackluster without Solid Snake as the star. The game should still be enjoyable but clearly it’s not the same without Solid Snake.
