Amazon Customer
The list author says: "After a slow start, Sony now delivers on the full promise of the PS3. It plays Blu-Ray movies, up-converts old DVDs so they shine on your HDTV, supports 3D visuals, streams Netflix & other digital content, and so much more.

The PS3 boasts the best multi-platform franchises ever available, including BioShock, Mass Effect, Batman Arkham, Call of Duty, Fallout, Assassin's Creed, Dead Space, Rock Band, GTA, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls, and Portal.

And now the PS3 boasts a line-up of Exclusive Games to stand toe-to-toe with anyone and it only gets better each quarter.

This is a list of PS3-exclusive titles you won't find on any other console and reason enough in their own right to own a Playstation 3:"
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Playstation 3
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - Playstation 3
"2011 / M.  Third installment to the one of the best-written, most exciting game franchises ever created.  This game is the full package - outstanding single-player, co-op, and multiplayer.  Huge value on this disk.  Every gamer should play Uncharted."
UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves - Game of The Year Edition - Playstation 3
UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves - Game of The Year Edition - Playstation 3
"2009 / T.  Widely, and rightly, considered among the best games this generation.  There are no weak points in this game - story, gameplay, visual, voice-acting - everything deserves the many GOTY awards it received.  Plus the addition of outstanding co-op and robust online multiplayer modes make this a must-own game. Metacritic = 96!"
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Playstation 3
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Playstation 3
"2007/T.  The closest you can get to feeling like you are actually playing a RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK film.  Appeals to fans of the best Prince of Persia and Tomb Raider games.  Only topped by its own sequel. Metacritic = 88"
Resistance 3 - Playstation 3
Resistance 3 - Playstation 3
"2011 / M.  Insomniac finally delivered on the promise of the Resistance franchise and surprised all the critics by delivering a true Game-of-the-Year contender with R3.  The single-player campaign offers a very engrossing, meaningful story and outstanding gameplay and set-pieces.  Then there is the Multiplayer First-person shooting to add more value."
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
"2008 / M.  Possibly the best MGS title yet, but certainly a worthy final chapter to this incredibly cinematic franchise.  It rightfully won many 'Best of 2008' awards. Metacritic = 94!"
God of War III - Playstation 3
God of War III - Playstation 3
"2010 / M.  The first PS3 installment of one of the greatest franchises available on the PS2.  GOW has spawned many imitators and the story is what the story is, but it's the tight controls and graphics where this game truly shines."

Metacritic = 84"
Killzone 3 - Playstation 3
Killzone 3 - Playstation 3
"2011 / M.  This is the marquis multiplayer exclusive shooter on the PS3.  The guys at Guerrilla Games improved on everything that was good about KZ2 and pushed it even further.  The single-player campaign is very satisfying, but the stellar multiplayer is where this truly shines.  Many hours of gameplay here."
Killzone 2 - Playstation 3
Killzone 2 - Playstation 3
"2009/M.  Sony has yet to find a true 'HALO-killer', but KZ2 has come the closest.  It lived up to its massive hype and delivered more polish and tighter gameplay than most first-person shooters on the market.  Outstanding single and multiplayer gaming experience. Metacritic = 91!"
Little Big Planet 2
Little Big Planet 2
"2011 / E.  "Play Create Share" is a philosophy that has revolutionized gaming.  LBP2 is possibly the greatest and certainly the most customizable platformer ever.  Boasting millions, that's right millions, of additional user-created levels."

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction - Playstation 3
"2007/E10.  One of the best platformer franchises on any console, surpassing MARIO in both fun and story imo.  This one is fun for gamers of all ages, as is the downloadable QUEST FOR BOOTY game. Metacritic = 89"
Heavy Rain - Greatest Hits
Heavy Rain - Greatest Hits
"2010/M.  More of an interactive cinematic experience than a game by traditional standards, this genre-bender is heavily story-based.  Your actions/choices dramatically affect the outcome.  Appeals to certain gamers while others will hate it. MC = 88."

Resistance: Fall of Man - Playstation 3
"2006/M.  The first PS3 game to sell over 1M copies, this sci-fi, alt-history FPS was a huge hit for Insomniac (of RATCHET and SPYRO fame) and Sony.  Along with WARHAWK, these are the best PS3-exclusive shooters currently available. Metacritic = 86"
Resistance 2 - Playstation 3
Resistance 2 - Playstation 3
"2008/M.  Surpassing the critical & commercial success of its predecessor, R2 is the highest-rated 1st-person-shooter exclusive to the console.  So far, this is the closest Sony has come to matching the phenomenal success of Xbox's HALO franchise.  Metacritic = 87"
The ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection

"2011 / T.  The world's crashing down around you while you race for your life.  Unfortunately, this was lost in the shuffle a bit with a lot of other arcade racers released around the same time (NFS:Hot Pursuit, Split/Second, Blur), but this is the best and most unique of the MS games.  Well worth your time and money."

Gran Turismo 5 - Playstation 3
