I’m not a fan of consoles. In fact, my first console in 30 years (used to have an Intellivision) is the PlayStation 3.
To be honest, I bought the PS3 for the Blu-Ray 3D player, not the videogame itself. Considering I'm incapable of playing my favorite gender, FPS (First Person Shooter) in a control pad (I really need a mouse+keyboard setup), and there is really no decent RTS (Real Time Strategy) outside the PCs, you could think I lost money on my fancy Blu-Ray player. But, it looks like I didn't.
Here are the best PS3 games I played so far:
Heavy Rain – out of question one of the best games I ever played. More an interactive movie than a game, it can deliver intense emotions (from sadness to love, from hope to despair, from genuine terror to relief) in a way movies find hard to do and games couldn’t even dream of.
Valkyria Chronicles – now that’s a game clearly done with passion. Beautiful, light hearted and compelling… I only wished this tactical game had multiplayer and more game modes to improve its replaybility (a RISK-like game mode would work wonders). Yes, the saddest thing about this game is the fact it ends.
Mortal Kombat (2011) – OK, Mortal Kombat wasn’t my preferred fighting games franchising (always loved Samurai Shodown) but they really nailed with this one. Brutal, clever, with a terrific movie-like story mode, endless content and hours of fun with friends guaranteed, Mortal Kombat (2011) is a flawless victory.
