New to PSN, joined today! Suggestions?

Hello PS Community.

 

My name is Robert, but I go by my gamer name Bluedot and I've just converted back to the community. I've honestly never been involved in this community but I've been a proud owner of the PS1 & 2 which I've had amazing experiences with games like Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil Outbreak, Tomb Raider, Socom and Everquest 2 just to name a few. I've owned the Xbox 360 for about 3 years, and I've had some good times but nothing I felt could compare to the times I've shared with Sonys console & titles.

 

I just sold a lot of my AAA titles from the Xbox 360 and purchased a PS3 last night and already I feel home. However, I've been gone from the scene for awhile and I'd like some suggestions on some games that I should be seeking interest in. I love shooter type games so I've heard good things about the Killzone and Resistance series, but I also have my fantasy side that craves an epic word with sword slashing and magic casting.

 

Anyways, I'm looking forward to being apart of this community for a long time and I'm really stoked about the PS4 and it's features. I don't have any games for the PS3, and normally I'd look for new friends but I don't want to flood my list with people I don't know who I can't play games with, also I don't have a headset yet but I won't reject an invite, as I just discovered this feature called Playstation Home, and OMG! What have I been missing!!

 

Well I don't want to drag this out, so I just like to shout a big, "WAZZZZZZUUUP!" to the community and hope to see you all on the forums or in-game.

I converted eight days ago, and found myself loving Uncharted, Twisted Metal, Killzone 2, inFAMOUS, and a few cross-platform titles that I had already played, that just plain feel better using the DualShock 3. 

If you haven't, snag a PS+ membership - I got close to a dozen great games that way.  So worth it.

You've suggested some really good titles, I appreciate you providing me with a list I'll have to look out for these titles. I heard good things about Little Big Planet and The Last of Us just looks amazing! Now to invest in an HDTV!

 

Kudos to all for the welcome and suggestions.

For shooters Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 are good games along with Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2, and Resistance 3. BioShock and BioShock 2 are also good, along with the likes of Binary Domain and Warhawk. The Call of Duty series is also enjoyable each year, while redundant at the same time.

 

For games on the fantasy side, I'd say that Final Fantasy XIII is a good game, though not as good as some others. Star Ocean: The Last Hope International, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Eternal Sonata, Heavenly Sword, God of War III, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Tales of Graces f, Asura's Wrath, PixelJunk Monsters, Flower, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Portal 2 are just some of the games I can suggest playing on the PlayStation 3.

I’m in similar shoes to you, I’ve been thinking of getting the ps3 lately as well but not sure if it’s worth it especially if the make the ps3 game available on the ps4 through PSN like they have done with the ps1 & ps2 games on the ps3(though i can’t find any links to buy the old Ps1/2 games)

 

with the help of this thread if I do get a ps3 I’ve got a list of around 30 games that I’d be interested in playing but not sure if it’s really gonna be worth the money with the Ps4 around the corner and if the make the games I want play available on the ps4 through psn

 

Either way thanks to your thread my list of games I want to play has gotten bigger :smileyvery-happy:
