I just picked up a PS3, cause they're fairly cheap and I figured there's a ton of games I get for a around $10 that I've been wanting to play. Recommendations welcome!

I picked up:

Guacamelee - What can I say, I adore Metroidvania games. This game oozes style and humour. Gameplay-wise it blends together Metroid, dimension-shifting, Super Meat Boy-esque platforming and Super Smash Bros-like attacks. It even has co-op! I think it's fair to say PSN games may be even more of a reason for me to own a PS3 than the triple A titles.

Assassin's Creed II - Because everyone says this is the best one. Haven't played it yet.

LittleBigPlanet 2 - Not gonna lie, first impression's not too good. I've been playing a ton of NSMBWii, DKCR, Rayman Origins, etc. I don't like floaty jumps and imprecise platforming. I do love the artstyle, but I don't put enough time in games for the customisation. This may have been a bad buy. Mostly did so for the multiplayer.

Burnout Paradise — Shocked though I am that this (and many, many other retail games) no longer support local multiplayer, I'm sure I'll have a blast with this. I've spend a ridiculous amount of hours on Burnout 1 and 2 on the Cube, and getting to know one big city like the back of your hand sounds like a great addition.

Games I'm buying soon: Journey collection, Batman (should I start with Asylum?), Red Dead Redemption, The Unfinished Swan, Sound Shapes, Closure, Shatter, PixelJunk series, Outland

Games I'm contemplating buying: Fat Princess, Joe Danger, Uncharted series, Tokyo Jungle, Prince of Persia 2008, Bayonetta, Bioshock, Jak & Daxter trilogy

note: I'm really not into shooters or realistic racers / realistic sports games. But I may give one or two a shot.

The Last of Us.

Edit: Obviously not around $10 but a must for PS3 owners.

PS+ is an incredible investment too, got it a couple weeks ago and already have Battlefield 3, Oddworld Munch's Oddysey and soon Jet Set Radio for free while I bought Alice Madness Returns with a big + discount.

@8BitSamurai Holy cow, that's a long list.

@Platypus Thanks for the heads up on Batman and Fat Princess. I'll likely skip Fat Princess, and go for Arkham Asylum then. I've heard good things of A Crack in Time. Although the multiplayer of All 4 One attracts me. R&C games do look a little repetitive, though. Sly series do look interesting to me.

@Splat I'm more likely to pick up Uncharted for now. TLOU looks interesting, but I've got so many games to buy I'd rather wait until TLOU is discounted heavily.

@irken004 A question about PS+: do I get access to all the games that have gone free over the past year, or only the ones that are released starting when I start my subscription? I'm not a big fan of subscriptions, or the idea of not being able to replay my games after my subscription ends, to be honest.

Unfortunately only the ones currently available when you start the subscription. But new ones are added every month, and there's bound to be plenty that you'll like. And since PS4 makes + a requirement, I thought it'd be nice to subscribe now and enjoy some of its benefits now. Not to mention the cloud game saves, automatic updates for game patches and firmware, and auto trophy sync.

I also highly recommend PS+. The free games are awesome but like irken004 said the discounts are great at times. I got Mortal Kombat for $5 and LBP Karting for $10. Anything you buy at a discount off PS+ you keep regardless if you stick with PS+ or not.

I gotta agree with the people who said PS + was a great investment, it pays for itself in a day, let alone a year. Even if you never play the free games, the discounts and other features would make it worth it.

I don't think my 160 Gb lasts me that long when it comes to downloading entire games. Yeah I can get an external, but that's hassle and the price of like 10 games. Not to mention I like having cases and booklets.

You could maybe upgrade the internal drive like I did, went from a 160 to 320. Internal drives don't cost much at all: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136927

Or better yet, 500GB! I really need to upgrade mine, had to delete some stuff to make room for the PS Plus games I wanted to play. :(

It's a really good game Dez. I was playing the crap out of it a few weeks before its release and I really enjoyed it; I gave it a 4.5/5 Star review score in my review.

Too true, and since ICO is coming to PS + I'll get on that.

I can't recommend Spelunky enough. It's so damn brutal and unforgiving, yet so addicting.

I had fun once and it was awful.
