Top 30 games to play on PS3 before switching to PS4 (Part 1 of 5)


After what we’ve all experienced at E3 this year it’s obvious that the current generation is now all but claimed the throne. So, before you make the move to the next generation you might want to make sure that you played all the great games on the PS3 before making the move. Here’s a list of PS3 games you simply have to play. This list is in no particular order and includes multi-format games. Basically if you owned a PS3 these are the Top 30 games you should not have missed out on.

Far Cry 3


After the antics in Africa it was time for Far Cry to return to its spiritual roots by invading a tropical island. Include one of the best villains in recent memory and you’ve got an FPS that wants/needs to be explored.


Heavy Rain


When an origami killer is on the loose it’s up to you to track down your sons kidnapper. The movie-like experience will make full use of your reflexes (using QTE’s) and pushes the boundaries of storytelling in games.


Mortal Kombat


A return to form for the once mighty and bloody Mortal Kombat franchise. Gone are the Teen ratings and 3D fighting arenas, and in it’s place is the classic formula we all loved on the Mega Drive and Arcades. Toasty!


Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch


Join Oliver, a young wizard, as he discovers he possesses immense powers which he must develop in order to save a loved one. With friends and Familiars he needs to defeat the evil Witch in a Studio Ghibli created world.


Red Dead Redemption


This has likely gone down as one of Rockstar’s finest moments in gaming. The Western lets you live out your dreams of being a cowboy by exploring a world which bustles with everything the West had to offer. Buy it!


Uncharted (series)


There is no adventure that can touch Drake’s journey in this generation and it can only be found on the PS3. Drake will take you on trips through jungles, deserts and even shipwrecks. If you plan to play Uncharted 4 and you’re a fun, graphics and adventure whore then this is for you.

Tomorrow we continue with our countdown of the best PS3 games your money can buy and that you should play before buying a PS4.

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
