Okay everyone, we need your help. In a move that we have not stolen from our dear friends at Nintendo Life at all, we have decided to rank the best PlayStation 3 games. With Sony’s last-gen console, which celebrates its 15th anniversary on November 17 (at least in North America!), This seems like an appropriate time to remember some of the system’s very best games – and boy did it have some bangers.
The PS3 represented a slightly strange time for Sony. The Japanese giant came from the back of the best-selling home console ever made – the PS2 – and many would argue that hubris distorted the company’s perspective. The first years of the PS3 were a wake up call; The system’s unique CELL architecture made it a problematic piece of technology for third-party developers, and its infamous “599 US dollars” price tag was enough to make consumers roll over.
It took a couple of years for the PS3 to make its progress. Kazuo Hirai spearheaded a significant restructuring of Sony and PlayStation, and with that came an emphasis on quality video games. It was here that the generally excellent effort from Sony’s first-party studios was first brought into focus; PS3 pretty much laid the foundation for the huge popularity of PS4’s exclusive catalog.
But again, we need your help in judging all these PS3 games. All you have to do is rate your favorites using the poll below. All the games included in the poll have been taken directly from the Push Square database and it is one long list. Therefore, try to use the “https://www.pushsquare.com/search” function at the top of the poll to find the games you like best. You can also sort games by popularity.
Or you can just scroll through it all and rate any game you recognize. If there are any games we’ve missed and that you think are worth adding, please let us know in the comments section.
Here’s how it works: When a game has a certain number of user ratings, it is eligible to be included in our list of best PS3 games (which we are releasing in time for the aforementioned 15th anniversary). Basically, we’re asking you to rate as many of these games as you like, and in the end we’ll end up with a definitive PS3 list voted for by the Push Square community.
Now get out there and get a rating!
