Returning to Playstation, what do I play?

14 replies 174 views Edited Jan 2, 2013

Hi there everyone. I'm back to Playstation after being severely disapointed by microsoft.

I originally had a playstation 2 in 2002 (still have it, the old fat model, still works like a charm) but was a little too young at the time to appreciate what made a good game, so I had a lot of terrible ones. Then I got an Xbox 360 later on because all of my friends had one. didn't enjoy it, not enough solid single player experiences that couldn't be found elsewhere and they had me paying like crazy for their services that I seldom had the time to use.

 

Anyways, I'm back to Sony now and I want to know, What did I miss? What are some exclusive games that I have to play?

I already have a few games, but I want to know first hand from the community, which games are really good? (you can list multiplatform games, too)

 

I already have the following (exclusives being in green)...

  • God of War Saga
  • Borderlands (GOTY)
  • Skyrim (my addiction)
  • Assasin's Creed II
  • Assasin's Creed III (they had a bundle down at walmart with II and III)

I 2nd that Playstation Plus notion.

 

Same cost as a XBL Gold membership (I believe), and it provides $100s in free and discounted content.  The 'free' games are only playable while you are a PS+ member, but it's only $50/yr.  Discounted games you buy are yours to keep no matter what.

So, what you're saying is...

 

1. Get PS+ subscription

2. Rack up credit card with discount games

3. Decide whether or not to continue subscription (but probably keep it).

 

I like it. I might (have to) upgrade the hard drive down the road, but so far, i'm really looking forward to doing this.

Jetpack Joyride for PS3&Vita is free in the store, no PS+ required. If you see it priced, you might be looking at the Mini version of it, but the standard PS3/Vita versions are free. It is not the best game in the store, but it is free for a limited time. You might as well get it. It has some trophies in the game.

Yes, a larger hard drive would indeed be a solid choice, eventually.  I have a 500GB HDD right now, and it is nearly full, mostly with PS+ content.

well i guess it all depends on your taste in games... 

 

Battlefield 3 bundle is great for on-line play it's a multi-theater combat sim, but the single play isn't much to my liking (it seems to serve better as a tutorial of the game)

 

Call Of Duty - Modern Warefare3 (BlackOps 2 is still fresh) is still pretty good too. I think the single play mode is much better than Battlefield 3 single play, but while the online play is great, it doesn't hold a candle to Battlefield 3's online play.

 

Some of the later Need 4 Speeds are good (Shift, Undercover, Most Wanted), but Xbox's Forza is the ultimate car game

I was thinking of going all out for a 1tb drive (me and a buddy would each get one at the same time to get a better deal on shipping).

If you plan on purchasing alot of Digital content, then go ahead and upgrade the HDD. Playstation plus will drain your storage like theres no tomorrow!! Make sure it's no larger than a 2.5 inch hard disk.

Welcome back to Playstation!
