Default PS3 games recommendations.

I need help with buying games for my ps3. I got it yesterday so I really have nothing right now. I'm looking for games that are either action or rpg that'll last me for a while.

Please do not mention Final Fantasy 13, I already have it.

Halo: Black Ops.

I would suggest a lot of things off PSN rather than disc based. Try Pale Crescent Moon. I enjoyed playing it. (For PSN purchases make sure to gameshare!)

Playstation 3 - /v/'s Recommended Games Wiki

Out of the PS3 games that I have played, I recommend Valkyria Chronicles and Demon's Souls for your RPG criteria. The story for Valkyria Chronicles was kinda blah to me, but the gameplay is really fun.

I haven't played Nier or Resonance of Fate, but I heard both of them are pretty good.

For action, I guess try to get Uncharted 2 and Vanquish at a low price. They're really fun, but there's not much content imo.

If you like action with stealth, you can try Assassin's Creed 1 and 2.
Assasin's Creed 1 is a bit boring but still somewhat fun. The 2nd game is better, imo. If you like backstabbing people and jumping around like a monkey, then you should have some fun with them.
As for Metal Gear Solid 4, try it out if you had beaten MGS 1, 2 and 3. Personally, I think it's the worst one in the series due to LOLMOVIE, but I shed some manly tears while watching some cutscenes.

I've only played a little of Red Dead Redemption and Dead Rising 2, but they were pretty cool from what I've had played. So you can try them out if you want.

If you'd like an online "action", you could pick up Assassin's Creed Brotherhood over 1 and 2. You might miss some of the basic storyline, but it's honestly not hard to understand since there's a short "summary" of 2 at the beginning.
Multiplayer on it is REALLY fun if you enjoy stealth aspects in games over run-gun like Call of Duty.

Definitely adding onto Valkyria Chronicles for recommended RPG. It combines glory of guns and third-person shooting and strategy RPG, along with a beautiful artstyle. Haven't finished it myself (hi, lazyass), but it's really enjoyable.

I want to pick up on Resonance on Fate because I heard it was really good. Artstyles look great too. Story can't be bad.

Demon's Soul I played at my uncle's house. I'm a noob, so I find it masochistically hard and think it's something you really need to put time into, but that's just me. OTL
Real fun game though, lots of depth to it.

Uhh... there's Prototype for sandbox action, but I heard it gets boring real quick, not sure since I only played for like five minutes at my cousins'.

Everything everyone has said.

Putting more must get into Demon's Souls. It's easier once you know what you're doing.

My friend really enjoyed the Hack-n-slash series of God Of War

you could give GoW 1 & 2 a try and just trade them in for GoW 3 later if you like it

ammm also
-dragon age
-GoW 3 (love hack n slash =) )
-just cause 2 (its like a GTA but the guy is really overpowered [4 a human] and u have like a whole island)
-prototype (as said above, its a sanbox, i really love it but...i dont think it justifies u 50 bucks, also there's a PC version available)
-mass FX series (1 and 2, 3 is going to be released in this year or next i think)


also i'd recomend u to buy first sandbox games (GTA or Dead redemption) since they hold lots of posibilities and more gametime than most other games and probablly u wont get bored that easily (u got like easy 20 hour time)

I don't think Dragon Age for consoles would be worth it. I find it one of those games that you should play on PC if you can and not on your console. V:

Here are my personal recommendations:

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift
Little Big Planet 2(once it's out)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Demon's Souls
Valkyria Chronicles
inFamous
Modnation Racers


There are so many great games for the PS3, but these are the ones I would recommend. Must haves are definitely:Uncharted 2, Demon's Souls, Little Big Planet 2 and Valkyria Chronicles. Everything else is still awesome though.

Edit: AGH. Sorry didn't see you preferring action/RPGs. Well then. Here's my revised list:

Demon's Souls(RPG, really challenging, but rewarding)
Valkyria Chronicles(Japanese Strategy RPG, beautiful game with a really fun battle system)
inFamous(Action, open-world with an intriguing superhero story)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune(Action, Think Indiana Jones turned into a video game, gorgeous water effects, a bit on the short side though)
Uncharted 2:Among Thieves(Action, Sequal to the first Uncharted and it fixes everything that was wrong in first, gorgeous snow effects)
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift(Guess you could call it "Action" but it's a Fighter, one of the best modern fighters)
Eternal Sonata(Japanese Action RPG, unfortunately I have not played the full game. Only the demo, but I've heard many good things about it)
