Top 10 PS3’s JRPGs

I previously made a top 10 with my favorite RPGs on the PSP and, unintentionally, they all turned out to be JRPGs. If I were to make a list on that very same premise for the PS3 probably the outcome wouldn’t have been the same. Off the top of my head I can see that some Mass Effect game would have definitely made the list.
In any case, here we have my favorite RPGs on PS3 that also happen to be made by some folks in Japan. For variety reasons and, like always, only one title per franchise can/will be mentioned. Also, and for the very same reason, you can expect many types of RPGs to appear here (action, turn-based, tactical…).
I hope you enjoy the list!

3WS – Forgotten Third-Person Shooters

Comparatively speaking, this is definitely not the most stand-out sub-genres within the shooters. Nowadays the First-Person Shooter is one of if not the most popular genre within gaming. Even franchises like Uncharted or Gears of War don’t get the amount of light that heavy-hitters like COD or Overwatch get and they are certainly the TPS games that got the longer end of the stick. The protagonists of this article will be games that didn’t get anywhere close to that popularity.
We’ll be looking at Binary Domain, The Bureau: XCom declassified and Inversion. Last gen action titles of the third-person kind which may have been overlooked or simply weren’t good enough. You’ll have to keep reading to find out.

Briefiew – Persona 5

I have to admit that I wasn’t sure about if I should write this review or not. On one hand, if you’ve been following the gaming media or just checked metacritic, you’ll know already that this game is really great and the fact that I even included this title on the second spot for the best games of 2017 already tells that I’m not dissenting from that popular opinion either.
On the other hand, I spent over a hundred hours playing this game and I enjoyed them too much to not spend a couple more to deservedly praise it in an article like this.
In any case, there might be someone out there who isn’t sure about purchasing it and wants to know why some people like me enjoyed Persona 5 that much. If that’s the case for you, please continue reading.

Top 10 Worst PS3 Games

I don’t like this overwhelming wave of negativism that surrounds the video game scene nowadays. If a game doesn’t sell in Call of Duty numbers, it’s a failure; if a game doesn’t reach an 80 score on metacritic, it’s a waste of time for anyone. Also, it always feels like every move of any company is going to ruin the whole video game world for everyone. Let it be a game implementing microtransactions or Konami deciding to create a Silent Hill pachinko machine, it always seems like we’re heading to an unavoidable video game crash.
I don’t know if it’s cynicism from our part or just our perceptions being distorted by this hyperbole machine called the internet but I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks that we gamers as a whole should calm ourselves down. Since the very dawn of video games, bad practices have been made and bad games have been released and here we are, still playing our little electronic toys, aren’t we?
And as a proof, there’s this: These are in my opinion the worst games from the last generation playstation. I have around 400 physical (and over a 100 digital) ps3 games in my collection and, let me tell you, not all of them are stellar. However, this is just my opinion. If you happened to enjoy any of the games that I’ll be citing down below, just be happy for yourself, I tried and just couldn’t…

Top 10 PS3 Racing Games

If you’ve been following my articles, you’ll probably know already that I’m a huge fan of driving games and I have a pretty massive PS3 collection so with that in mind, it’s actually kind of surprising that I didn’t write an article like this earlier. In any case, here it is now. These are my favourite racing/driving games you can play on PS3.
It’s all based on my personal opinion, no metacritic scores or anything. Also, for variety purposes and to make this list more “useful”, there will only one game per franchise.

3WS – WWII Air combat on PS3

What a bunch of acronyms on the title alone!
World War II was all the rage in the early years of PS3 but the genre got overexposed or people simply grew tired of it and that resulted in a pretty big hiatus where no big budget title wanted to bring the player back to that dark era in history. That gap seems to have reached an end now that the series Call of Duty is going back to its roots and will be delivering a WWII experience this upcoming november.
The thing is, this hiatus might have been real for the big shooter titles like COD and Battlefield but in more “niche” territories like strategy or flight combat games, companies have kept using this period as their backdrop. That later genre is the one I’ll be looking at in this article. In particular, I’ll be comparing Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers, Birds of Steel and Heroes over Europe. Let’s take a look at them.

Collector’s Corner – Rare PS3 games?

If you’ve been following my contributions or simply took a look at this, you’ll know that I kinda have quite a big collection of PS3 games. It’s not just for collecting sake, I actually play through them (as much as my time lets me). The thing is, acquiring so many titles I certainly came to own some that could be considered “rare” or “collectible” so, from that experience, I think I can share my (limited) knowledge on the matter.
In this article in particular I want to explain some “factors” that will probably make certain games to be considered collectible in the future and also put some examples of it. Has to be said that the games you’ll see don’t have to be rare as of today, I’m just talking about chances of being collectible in the future.
So, without further do, let’s see what will make your PS3 games rare.

PS+ Games of March 2017

Next week’s tuesday will be the day when the new games from the PS+ program will arrive but Sony has announced the titles already so here we are. Like every month, I’ll try to explain very briefly what to expect from them but, as I haven’t played them all for myself yet, you can take my opinion with a grain of salt.

Anyway, these will be the games.

3WS – Ricer racers on PS3

I am well aware that the term “ricer” is borderline offensive for the people that like to customize their cars but I can’t hold myself when it comes to puns and wordplay in general. In any case, this will give you a good idea on what are these games about. Massive spoilers, flashy colored vynils and lots of japanese imported cars is what you’ll find in here.
The three games we’ll be inspecting today strangely came quite early in the PS3’s lifecycle and they are Need for Speed: Carbon, Juiced 2: Hot import nights and Midnight Club: Los Angeles. Let’s take a look at them.
