Best first game to buy for ps3?


I am planning on buying a ps3 next week, and I’m trying to decide which game I would like to buy first. I have a long history with first person shooters, RPGs, and more. I’ve got the experience and the general knowledge of how to play games, and I’m not horrible at playing them, so I don’t want something light. I want a game that is difficult, and different.

These are some I have considered

Shadow of the colossus and ico bundle

Dark souls


Heavy rain

L.A. Noire

Killzone trilogy

Mass effect trilogy

I would like this game to be in the range of $20 but I can go a little bit more expensive, My top two choices are shadow and ico bundle and dark souls. Dark souls looks really awesome but I’m worried it will be too but at the same time I feel like I’m up to task. I just want my first experience with the ps3 to be great so that way I feel the need to keep it and keep playing.

So which one is best for beginners? Are there any other I have missed? I’m open to just about anything.

  3. Definitely Dark souls!! I love that game. And if you want even harder then pick up demons souls. Bioshock one is cheap and a great game as well. Ico and shadow of colossus is cool too. Portal 2 is fun if you like puzzle/thinking.

  4. Well the Mass Effect Trilogy collection is still $50-60. But totally worth it. L.A. Noire is an excellent game. Another game I highly recommend that mixed FPS and RPG is Borderlands and Borderlands 2. Both are some of the best games I’ve ever played. Absolutely brilliant. And I think the GOTY Edition of the first game is only $20.

  5. The Killzone trilogy, if you haven’t played before are excellent games. L.A. Noire is difficult, but not action packed, still a great game, of corse Mass Effects are great too. *IF* you can handle it, God of War III is very challenging, wonderful graphics, and full of action, however, you got to have the stomach for it. By far, despite it not being a first person shooter or a RPG Uncharted is absolutely breathtaking, it is one of the PS3’s specials and definatly on the top 3 for best PS3 series. Cathrine is hilarious and umm. interesting, but doesn’t really use the PS3’s true power for what it’s worth. Do not buy Skyrim or Fallout for this console, If you plan on hardcore gameplay with them (which they usually require) it will lag and crash frequently.
