Hello! I was thinking of buying the PS3 Super Slim 500GB Last of Us bundle and don't really know of any PS3 games or accessories that are must haves.

What kinds of games do you like?

 

If you like RPG's then Ni No Kuni might be up your alley. It's not that expensive, around $20, and it's really fun from what people have said about it so far.

Definitely a good idea to get PS+. The PS3 has, and is still getting a lot of great games monthly for free with this service. There are also a lot of great deals to be had on games and other things.

I wasn't very fond of JRPG's or RPG's.. I like games such as The Fallout series, Bioshock Infinite, and Metro: Last Light.

Ah.  Are you a fan of the Resident Evil series?

As someone already mentioned, get Playstation Plus. Not only will you have access to a large variety of impressive games (as long as you're a member, which is worth it), but you also get tons of discounts on sales that helps pay for itself on the long run.

 

As for games, some I would recommend would be The Last of Us, the Uncharted Series, the Infamous series, Playstation All Stars (if you like fighting games with a twist), God of War series, and third party games like Grand Theft Auto 5, Borderlands 2, and Bioshock Infinite. I could make the list go on because there are hundreds of games to choose from.

 

If you are interested also, the PS3 has Playstation Home. You get to create you're own person and socialize with others in virtual places with different themes and many games. It's free too, unless you want to buy many costumes and accessories.
