Which PS3 Games Should I buy?

by Jivedaddy / July 20, 2007 10:06 AM PDT

Okay, not that Sony dropped the price, I ordered a PS3 on (no tax and free shipping).

What two-three games should I buy? I'm a 40 yr. old gamer and like Splinter Cell, Socom, Half-Life 2, and the like.

Thanks Everyone!

P.S. Does it matter where you buy your PS3 for the 5 free Blu-Ray movies deal many retailers are offering? I didn't see it on Amazon, but at many other online vendors. Thanks again!

these might be a good start.

I would suggest Call Of Duty 4 (not out yet)
Ghost Recon: Advanced War fighter 2 (aug 7th)( not out yet)
Battlefield: Bad Company (not out yet)

games that are out: if you like shooter games
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas, (at stores)

these are just some of the games that I think you will want in your collection.

Being close to 40 myself, we have similar taste in games.

Resistance, fall of man is very good. Also Rainbow Six, Vegas is excellent as well.

There is Splinter Cell: Double Agent also availible, but I have not played that one yet.

My suggestion is this, rent games from Blockbuster before you buy.

As far as the 5 blu-ray movie deal, check Sony's website. If multiple retailers are offering the same deal, it more than likely is coming straight from Sony.

Okay, I've read the posts and made my purchases...

Picked up three games (should last me through Holidays)...

1. Resistance, Fall of Man
2. Motor Storm
3. Fight Night Round 3

I also purchased the 60GB PS3 off of Amazon for a couple of reasons...

1. I had the money
2. Sony dropped the price $100
3. No tax and free shipping on

Thanks everyone.

I've also noticed the games don't look anywhere near as good as the videos I'd seen from E3 the past couple years. Resistance looks good, but not great, Fight Night looks nowhere near as photo-realistic and the E3 video from 2 years ago. Motor Storm looks pretty good, but the mud splatters again are nothing like the videos from E3. Guess I'm going to stop believing the pre-release videos altogether from here on out.

Although the recent video (in-game) footage of Metal Gear 4 looks amazing. Another game I'm looking forward to is Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, this game looks great. But then again, what am I to believe until they actually come out...

about the five movies!!

if you go to the amazon website at and look at the ps3 60GB
on that page there is a line that says this:

Purchase a Sony PlayStation 3 and receive 5 FREE Blu-Ray movies. Purchase between July 1, 2007 and September 30, 2007, mail-in offer only. Click here for mail-in form and promotion detail.

click here and you have to complete the form and mail in your UPC and choose from the limited selection they have!

Cool, they must have added that after I took the plunge for mine. I did download the form from another website and sent it in.

The only thing I didn't like about this promo is I had to remove the original UPC from my PS3 box. Kinda weirds me out in case I ever had to return it. Probably no big deal...
