    I got a PS3 for Christmas and I was wondering what you guys thought were must have titles.

    I got COD:WAW with it and am going to get Fallout 3 and LBP. Is there anything else I should look at? Thanks!

    Uncharted - The only really must-have exclusive.
    Valkyria Chronicles, Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, Resistance 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4 - More 'acquired taste' exclusives.

    If you already have a 360, I would get most other games on that. Thats what I do, as I slightly prefer the controller and a lot of the games are ports or led on the 360 so are slightly better on that format in terms of performance and graphics.

    What about Far Cry 2. I'm reading a lot of mixed things about it. Uncharted is another winner I think.

    FC2 - bit of a marmite game. I personally love it, but its a slow burner and you need patience. Then again, I liked it so much I bought it twice - for the PS3 and the 360. (Needed the 360 version to play MP with my mates)

    sub 7 pounds is an insult to the dev team. It's worth every penny.

    I'll echo the calls for MGS4, Uncharted, Fallout3, Bioshock and Valkyria. I can't recommned LBP as I've only just got a copy myself and not played it yet. As has been mentioned, some of these may be acquired tastes so I'd check them out before buying.

    LBP is top value. Now that you can search on highest rated community levels it just keeps giving.

    FCUTA!

    Agree with this - currently 20% through (10 hours played).
    It looks fantastic and plays really well, but the respawning enemies are a real pain after a while, and the game makes you travel all across the map just to make the game last, not because it really adds anything. It would have been outstanding if you could reason with or bribe checkpoints etc, rather than have to shoot everyone dead at every single one every time you drive through them.

    I'd give it 7/10 IMHO - but for under 20 it's well worth it.

    The 'core' of my PS3 games library is:

    LBP
    GRID
    Midnight Club LA
    GTA4
    Uncharted
    Resistance 1 (waiting for a cheaper copy of 2)
    Bioshock
    The Orange Box
    Everybody's Golf Word Tour
    Tiger Woods 08
    Warhawk

    There are currently deals on every one of those games (check out the bargains thread elsewhere in the forum)

    Thanks for all the tips so far. I think I will be picking a lot of these suggested titles up over time.

    I am looking for things like good shooters, RPGs and multiplayer games. The same games seem to be cropping up for these.

    Is there any 'cool stuff' that I can do with my PS3 other than play games and watch Blu Ray? When I say this, I mean do you guys actually use the music features etc and are they any good?

    I only use mine for gaming and BR movies :)
    But you can easily stream movies from your pc to it or fold @home if that's your cup of tea.

    apparently Killzone 2 is going to own everyone's face.

    if you really can't look at metacritic/gamerankings and decide what you want then I think the best advice is to hook up with one of the rental services, as you're probably not going to have the exact same taste as everyone here.

    Games that I think are really great and worth getting in to:

    LBP : didnt think I would like this as much as I do, its just alot of fun. My kids have had alot of fun on it and have been making their own levels (they are 10 and under).
    Fallout 3 : I think I prefer this on the PC, but still nice on PS3.
    Uncharted: Very much fun if you like a good story, climbing and shoorting
    Overlord : Love this game, just silly "Gremlin" like fun.
    FC2 : Not bad, something to play in smaller chunks
    Wipeout : This is certainly more fun than i expected. It was only 11 and had to give it a go at that cost.

    Thats just for starters, I would recommend looking at other such as Grid, GTA, Resistance2.. if you have the cash.

    Since all the obvious ones have been mentioned, I'll just chip in and say Folklore is a really good little early exclusive the PS3 had which got horribly overlooked, it's probably cheap now and it really isn't like anything else, so its worth checking out (after LBP, GTA and MGS though)
