Well, the year end is upon us..almost…it’s time for us to look back at a great year gone by from a PS3 perspective and look through some of the fantastic games that have graced us.
Just a note on how we came up with this list. We’re not focusing on PlayStation Exclusives, but games that may have released across all platforms as well. Another way to look at this is, if you own a PlayStation 3, what are the best games you’d choose from this year. Now, on to our list!!
#10. DmC: Devil May Cry
The franchise was re-invented this year which pushed it’s DNA of being a bad-ass hack and slash no holds barred, gun slinging, demon slaying game to new heights. Dante was re-imagined as a younger lad with black hair, and someone with no respect for authority. The gameplay is still great as ever, and really sticks to its roots with some great changes.
#9. Diablo III
#8. FIFA 14
#7. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
Play as all your favorite Marvel Super Heroes, LEGO style! unlock more than 100 characters from across the Marvel Universe, including fan favorites like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Loki and Galactus! The game will pack in a plethora of super-cool character abilities, combat-like action sequences, epic battle scenes, puzzle-solving and a unique story told with playful LEGO humor.
#6. Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
For us, this was certainly one of the best games this year, especially considering the 10 year old franchise. To add to it, the original trio that starred in the very first game are back for with a completely new and original storyline, while still offering the same kind of hardcore, over-the-top, endless gameplay that has captured fans since the very first Disgaea! In addition there are tons of game system refinements that will entice new fans and make this a MUST have on your PlayStation 3.
#5. Tomb Raider
As far as re-boots go, this is certainly one of the better ones. Tomb Raider delivers an intense and gritty story of the origins of Lara Croft and her ascent from frightened young woman to hardened survivor, armed with only raw instincts and the physical ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance. Superb physics-based gameplay is paired with a heart-pounding narrative in Lara’s most personal, character-defining adventure to date.
#4. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist
#3. BioShock Infinite
#2. Grand Theft Auto V
Yes, you knew this was gonna be here! GTA V certainly has returned and is bigger and better. We reviewed this as ‘The Perfect Open World Game’ – and there’s no doubt it is. We won’t get into details of why this game is so great, because you’ve already heard enough of it, and you KNOW, that GTA V is certainly in contention for the Game of the Year award.
