Other than uncharted 1,2 and the last of us, which are MUST PLAY, I recommend Asura's Wrath, especially if you're into "fighting" animes. I think it's a very underappreciated game, I loved it. I believe it should go for cheap.

I have Asura's Wrath for Xbox 360, it's in my storage unit, it's a pretty fun game I really dig that one. :happy:

I'd recommend the following:
- Prince of Persia (the self-titled reboot)
- Resident Evil 5 (one of my favorite out of all the Resident Evils. Probably only like RE 1 & 2 better)
- Fallout 3

Also, if you can get a good deal on them, either Yakuza 3 or 4.

EDIT: Personally I dig the Neptunia games and Disgaea too. There are a bunch to choose from. Disgaea 3 is cheap and super fun if you get into the gameplay. Neptunia MK2 is one of my faves, and Neptunia V is very good.

I have RE5 with all the DLC on my Xbox One, and I have Fallout 3 Game of The Year Edition for Xbox 360. Those are great games no doubt. I'll look up the other games you mentioned, thanks. :)

Sure thing. Yakuza 5 is digital-only on PS3 as well. I haven't played it, but it's supposed to be one of the best of the Yakuza games.

Do people still care at all for 3D Dot Game Heroes?  There was such enthusiasm when that was coming out.

(Holy crap, that was a long time ago.)
This depresses me. I feel like a goldfish right now...

I saw a YT video by Metal Jesus and he talked about that game, I gotta put that on my wishlist. :)

Regarding RE5 I would suggest having a second controller... so much nicer doing co-op.

Skate 3 is good. Skate 2 may or may not be better but is very much worth having never the less.

If you have not got Just Cause 2 (or 3 on the xbone) maybe consider a copy.

I quite like the MX vs ATV games. The original xbox version is my favourite but there is a lot to like about the PS360 offerings.

If you want to look into the Yakuza games then many enjoy them.

Don't go looking too hard for the PS3 to be the RPG machine the PS2 and PS1 might have been. Other than stuff like ni no kuni there is not a lot in it.

I never understood this. I always thought folks just didn't like Sheva stealing their ammo. ;) I give her the guns I don't use, basically a sub machine gun, and a rifle. I keep pistol and shotgun. Never had a problem. You might also have to tell her to wait when you're messing around with the crocodiles. I forget how the partner mechanics worked. It's been a while.

I rather enjoyed Folklore. Action-style game heavy with Celtic legend and a strong Shin Megami Tensei vibe, and possibly the best use of Sixaxis motion control I've experienced (you basically wrench the controller to yank a Folk's soul out of its body.)

Right out of the gate I played with a friend. At various points I tried playing with the AI having done the game several times over by then. 5 minutes was ready to frisbee the disc but tried to stick it out for a while longer... it was an impressive effort but none of the tactics we liked in co-op were there and it just made the game a bit of a slog.

Ahh, but how many have you played ?

I was saddened recently when Facebook told me it's been five years since I took a PS2 home, and I've barely touched it.

A few other suggestions that I recall enjoying (that I don't think have been mentioned yet):

Dante's Inferno
Puppeteer
Ratchet & Clank series

Jorpho I played most of 'em just to make sure they work. I plan to invest in a PS2 when I get a place, I have the GTA series, Max Payne 1 and 2, and The Getaway. Got 'em dirt cheap for the lot. :)

MegaManJuno I ordered Puppeteer yesterday, I remember Metal Jesus talking about that game. I ordered the Ratchet and Clank games a few days ago for bargain prices. Dante's Inferno I beat for Xbox 360, that one is really fun. :D
