I am hoping for two PS3 games this X-Mas. I certainly want Resistance 2, but I'm not sure what else to get. I am an open-minded gamer and like just about all kinds of games. I'm leaning towards Bioshock, Valkyire Chronicles, Eternal Sonata, or Call of Duty: World at War, or maybe even Motostorm: Pacific Rift. I know this is a hugely open ended question, but what do you think I should get and why? I am very open-minded about the second choice.
Current Game Library:
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Resistance: Fall of Man
Unreal Tournament 3
Little Big Planet
Metal Gear Solid 4
If you are open-minded as you say you are, honestly, any of those games should satisfy you. I know a friend who played Eternal Sonata, and said it was ok, not a final fantasy, but ok. Other than that, Bioshock, Valkyria Chronicles, and cod5 are great games. And Motorstorm as well.
Going by your list, it seems you don't have cod4, and cod5 is essentially a cod4 because it's the same engine, except it takes place in WWII. Essentially, what Treyarch did was a "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach, meaning they took what was successful in cod4 and did some tweaking, and bam, you have cod5. And then there's that survival nazi zombie mode.
Personally, I think I'm going with Valyria Chronicles because I want to take a step away from all the FPS shooters that have saturated the hardcore gaming market. All in all though, any of those games should keep you entertained for a while.
