Since I have bought a PS3, and I have six retail games [Little Big Planet, Killzone II, Metal Gear Solid 4, Soul Calibur IV, Fallout 3, and Ninja Gaiden Sigma]. I want to buy more games. I have some games in mind, but I can't buy them all at once. So, I want you to suggest me which games are the best choices.
Here is my PS3 wishlist:
Valkyria ChroniclesEnternal SonataElder Scrolls IV:OblivionGrand Theft Auto IVInfamousAssassin's CreedResident Evil 5
Any other suggestions are welcomed.

Well, I might not have a PS3, but here are some suggestions:
Bioshock (great on any system, and you get a few extra features)Uncharted (never played that one but my PS3 owning friends loved it)Resistance II (one of those that I'm jealous the PS3 has)Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

Metal Gear Solid 4 [Please understand that the only Metal Gear game I played was Metal Gear Solid 3. I loved it, but I did not reached the final boss.]: They are very close. I much prefer 4. Plus, the online mode is fun. Both games have ridiculous stories, but they're still amusing, and what so many naysayers ignore is that the game is fun even if you skip the story. You have to play on the higher difficulty for it to be challenging though.
Valkyria Chronicles: Ingenious game, though a single mistake can ruin a battle that you've spend half an hour in, and that really turned me off from continuing the game.
Enternal Sonata: I only played the demo, but it was fun. Fairly generic but solid RPG.
Fallout 3 & Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion: Both are great and you really can't go wrong with. You'll play them for hours. F3 fortunately has fewer people to interact (the dialog, voice acting, and facial animations are atrocious), but it is much more depressing and monotone than Oblivion, for obvious thematic reasons. If you can only get one, I'd suggest trying Oblivion first since it's much cheaper now. If you like it, Fallout 3 will be worth every penny.
Grand Theft Auto IV: Well, it follow the trend since GTAIII -- keep the game almost entirely the same but change the setting and make it slightly larger. Boring.
Infamous: The demo was all right. I've heard mixed reports. Doesn't see purchase-worthy to me, but there are more PS3 users here who'd say otherwise.
Assassin's Creed: Super dull game, I thought.
My favorite games on the system are MGS4, Warhawk, and Disgaea 3. Look up the latter two if you haven't heard of them. Fallout and Oblivion are close behind. If you enjoy Fallout or Oblivion and like a really tough challenge, Demon's Souls comes out soon and looks to be very fun in a somewhat similar experience. Along with NSMB, that's my most anticipated game of the year.

Well, I bought Metal Gear Solid 4, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Soulcalibur IV, and Fallout 3. I wanted to buy Elder Scrolls:Oblivion, but a GameStop employee basically said, I know we have the game, but I can't find it. Now does everybody understand why I do not care for GameStop much!? I played Soulcalibur IV, and it is awesome. Playing as Darth Vader is so much fun!

@SuperSonic1990: Have you downloaded any games on your PS3 yet? Be sure to check out Fat Princess on the Playstation Store this Thursday! It looks really awesome! I also heard that Tales of Vesperia is finally coming to PS3 sometime this year. It is a really great RPG and I would highly recommend it!

Hot Shots Golf and Eternal Sonata are both great.
Plain old gamer :)

Infamous is really good. I'd rent it though just to make sure its worth a purchase for you. It was a day 1 for me and I don't regret it. MLB The Show 09 looks good, I have 08 and I like it a lot. Gran Turismo is worth the purchase if you really like racing sims, its rather short. And yes Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds is great.
On a side note, the only thing I like about GTA IV was wrecking cars.

I haven't tried Hot Shots Golf yet but I agree with Corbie that Eternal Sonata is a great game! I also wanted to mention my personal favorite PS3 game; Valkyria Chronicles. It is a fantastic game!

I played Soul Caliber IV, and it is awesome. Playing as Darth Vader is so much fun!

@WolfRamHeart-The only original PlayStation Network games I have downloaded are Bomberman Ultra and Wolfenstein 3D. I have a bunch of PSOne Classics though. @Corbie-I was going to buy Enternal Sonata, but I can't recall seeing it. I will buying this game, when I have the money.I will buy more PlaySation Network games, and more retail games, but I can't buy games for a month.@Denzer-That feature exists!? [Runs to PlayStation 3.]

I was going to buy Oblivion, but GameStop acted like they had no clue where the game is. I will buy when I have the money. I'm debating about Assasin's Creed, you say it is great but Adam says it's not.

i think its fun. you should just read some reviews and see what you think but i would say elder scrolls is really awesome. try to get that if you can

Prototype, HAWX, Saints Row 2, Red Faction Guerilla. I played the 360 versions of those (well, I played Saints Row 1, not 2) but I think the PS3 versions are just as much fun.
Detailled breakdown:Prototype: Plain awesome fun. You're a super-powered monster and you get to do or not do whatever you feel like. The stealth mechanic works very well since you get to decide when to blow your cover and use your full power and when you'll rather not have those tanks shooting at you. It's not a game to play optimally, it's a game to play the way you feel like. The powers are imbalanced but they all have some kind of awesome in them that you can use for plain fun.
HAWX: Really good arcade flight action. The safeties off mode with the handbrake turns and everything makes it play much better than most flight games. It just has way too many planes and not enough ways to quickly find one that's just the way you want it for the given mission.
Saints Row 2: I could never get into regular GTA but Saints Row somehow manages to be more fun. It doesn't restrict where you can go, it's a bit like the 2D GTAs in that regard but obviously has 3D gameplay. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/...
Red Faction Guerilla: Screw graphic violence against people, graphic violence against buildings is what games really need! Destroying everything in sight is a ton of fun. Sometimes the lengthy drives get annoying and of course just blasting everything with giant missiles isn't a good idea when civilians are around but you still get plenty of awesome moments with all that destruction. Just make sure to keep moving when you raise an alert, you can't fight for long.
In reflection three of these four are open world... Well, I guess those can be a lot of fun when done right.

Thanks for the suggestions everybody, keep them coming! Is Resident Evil 5 worth buying? I'm considering buying it when I have the money. The online co-op looks so awesome.

If you haven't picked up Uncharted yet you should definitely check it out!
20. Posted: Sat 1st Aug 2009 21:16 BST
RE 5 is definitely worth buying. I'll co-op with all who apply--it's the ultimate co-op experience. Currently on my umpteenth playthrough struggling through Pro mode...and I finally got a bluetooth headset!
I'll second Infamous, as it's been in my PS3 longer than any other game. It's fantastic, and not nearly as thumb-twiddling as Assassin's Creed (not to mention the bugs are graphical in nature, not game-breaking arbitrary console-freezes.) Crash Commando on PSN is a great multiplayer game. Uncharted is an absolute work of art, but it's been stated enough. SF4 just dropped to $19.99 at gamestop so you can check that out too - Amazon just got mini arcade sticks for 20 bucks that...well I'm not gonna lie they're nothing great but they beat playing the game (or Soul Cal, etc.) with a regular controller.
