Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - Playstation 3
4.  Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - Playstation 3 by Sony Computer Entertainment
The list author says:
  "One of the best adventure/platforming games bar none. You don't need to play Uncharted 1 to play this."
$7.98   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (919 customer reviews) | 96 customer discussions

Fallout 3 Greatest Hits - Playstation 3
5.  Fallout 3 Greatest Hits - Playstation 3 by Solutions 2 Go
The list author says:
  "Get this version of Fallout 3. The Game of the year edition is unplayable on the PS3 due to glitches. Sadly, this game doesn't have the best visuals on the PS3 because of Bethesda's laziness and incompetence but it is a DAMN fine game.
Some glitches and game freezing can be expected but it is worth it."
$16.36   Used & New from: $1.00
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (370 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Batman: Arkham Asylum (Game of the Year Edition) - Playstation 3
6.  Batman: Arkham Asylum (Game of the Year Edition) - Playstation 3 by Warner Bros
The list author says:
  "Best comic book game on the market. GOTY edition is superb with optional 3d. Tacky cardboard glasses yes but looks amazing never the less."
$16.90   Used & New from: $6.49
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (570 customer reviews) | 27 customer discussions

God of War III - Playstation 3
7.  God of War III - Playstation 3 by Sony Computer Entertainment
The list author says:
  "One of the best monster hunter games on the PS3 or any console ever! If you have not played other God of War games, it doesn't matter really, just pick this one up and kill everything and anything that moves onscreen.
BRUTAL but FUN!"
$16.99   Used & New from: $1.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (882 customer reviews) | 144 customer discussions

Assassin's Creed II - Greatest Hits edition - Playstation 3
8.  Assassin's Creed II - Greatest Hits edition - Playstation 3 by UBI Soft
The list author says:
  "Great gameplay and brilliant story only part of what makes this a masterpiece that needs to be played!
Dont bother with Assassins Creed 1 unless you really really want to, because it is sloppier and poorer version of this one."
$15.60   Used & New from: $1.98
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (634 customer reviews) | 45 customer discussions

Bioshock - Playstation 3
9.  Bioshock - Playstation 3 by Take 2
The list author says:
  "I don't own this game for the PS3 but it is a must play on any console or PC. Bioshock 2 is not worth getting, unless you just can't satiate your Bioshock cravings."
$18.71   Used & New from: $3.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (338 customer reviews) | 17 customer discussions

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Playstation 3 (Greatest Hits)
10.  The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Playstation 3 (Greatest Hits) by Bethesda
The list author says:
  "THE BEST Fantasy RPG bar none, on any platform. Has great graphics, great gameplay and great story. You can spend 300 hours on this easily and still come back for more! Worth every dime."
$54.99   Used & New from: $3.25
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (167 customer reviews)

Just Cause 2 - Playstation 3
11.  Just Cause 2 - Playstation 3 by Square Enix
The list author says:
  "Massive open world game with Blockbuster movie action! Stunning visuals and PLENTY of explosions. A game that revels in bringing Chaos to serenity. A definite must play. The PS3 version of this is beautiful. Don't bother with Just Cause 1."
$17.07   Used & New from: $8.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (209 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

Killzone 2 - Playstation 3
12.  Killzone 2 - Playstation 3 by Sony Computer Entertainment

$10.85   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (524 customer reviews) | 97 customer discussions

Yakuza 3 - Playstation 3
13.  Yakuza 3 - Playstation 3 by "Sega of America, Inc."
The list author says:
  "The best open world urban Japanese game. This is NOT a GTA clone nor is it a classical JRPG, its in between! Has a moving story with great characters, authentic setting and LOTS of action.
Be prepared to read a LOT of the dialogue- (Don't ask me why, its a Japanese thing!)"
$23.21   Used & New from: $13.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (73 customer reviews) | 22 customer discussions

inFAMOUS - Playstation 3
14.  inFAMOUS - Playstation 3 by Sony Computer Entertainment

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (539 customer reviews) | 45 customer discussions

Heavy Rain - Greatest Hits
15.  Heavy Rain - Greatest Hits by Sony
The list author says:
  "One of the PS3's most unique games ever made. A stellar mystery story that makes the character a part of the story through interactive cues. A hundred different outcomes and dozens of different endings. This is more an interactive mystery/thriller movie than a "game"."
$27.86   Used & New from: $7.84
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (615 customer reviews) | 166 customer discussions

Demon's Souls
16.  Demon's Souls by Atlus
The list author says:
  "Awesome hack-slash game without too much of the RPG chit-chat and silly plots.
Difficult and painful as hell but then victory never tasted so sweet."
$20.80   Used & New from: $10.00
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (655 customer reviews) | 39 customer discussions

Resident Evil 5 - Playstation 3
17.  Resident Evil 5 - Playstation 3 by Capcom
The list author says:
  "Zombie game with awesome graphics and atmosphere. If you ever wanted to play a zombie game this is it. All its prequels can be easily skipped for this one!"
$13.53   Used & New from: $4.08
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (542 customer reviews) | 80 customer discussions

Midnight Club: Los Angeles - Playstation 3
18.  Midnight Club: Los Angeles - Playstation 3 by Rockstar Games
The list author says:
  "A very under rated game for its visuals and graphics. Hard as hell yes but beautiful and realistic rendering of LA.
Something to tide you over till Gran Turismo 5 gets out."
Used & New from: $6.98
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions
