Top 5 Favorites: PS3 Exclusives

Most times, when you see editorials like this, they're for the sake of outlining the best exclusives available, but this is very different; these are your favorite PlayStation 3 exclusives. And if anybody says "favorite" and "best" are the same thing, and in so doing implies that personal effing opinion somehow dictates the inherent quality of a product, they will get smacked. I'm not even kidding.

So anyway, here are my five favorite PS3 exclusives and I fully expect y'all to reciprocate with yours. Heck, discussion is the point of such an editorial! ;)

5. Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds

I don't care what anyone says; this game is a true-blue simulator beneath that cutesy exterior, and I've been a fan since the original first game out on the first PlayStation way back when. The only part I don't like about OoB is that ridiculous Advanced mechanic: offering it as an option is fine, but giving players who use it an unfair advantage by letting them drive the ball 30-40 yards further is a colossal mistake. They're not doing anything more difficult; they shouldn't get an arbitrary reward. But even so, I still play it from time to time after completing it, and I even hop online (when the Advanced cheaters don't tick me off too much) to play a few rounds. It's just so much fun, and if you've never given this game a try, I strongly recommend it. Yes, even if you don't like golf. You might be surprised...

4. Killzone 2

While I certainly agree that KZ2 is the second-best PS3 exclusive behind MGS4, it's not necessarily my second favorite. I like FPSs just fine and Guerrilla's masterpiece is easily the most accomplished and most impressive FPS of the generation thus far, but I just enjoyed myself a bit more with the upcoming three titles. All that being said, Killzone 2 was one of the very few recent games that actually made my palms sweat, and at no point was I ever bored or unduly frustrated. The entire production is just so unbelievably polished, and the presentation and gameplay is so awesome, it's tough to ignore the appeal. I loved it from start to finish and I absolutely can't wait to hear about the third title (which I assume Guerrilla will prepare for us).

3. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

You know, this would be #2 if it weren't for the very last part of the game, because I wasn't a huge fan of how Naughty Dog handled the final confrontation. But other than that, it remains an amazing action/adventure title that was arguably the first stellar, true-blue next-gen PS3 exclusive that was worthy of everyone's attention. Uncharted 2 is going to rock even harder and I'm seriously considering going back through the first game before I play the sequel. Heck, I probably should've already played it more than once! I just can't think of one aspect of this game that wasn't beautifully implemented; my complaints are so few and so minor, that the experience was both fulfilling and even memorable. And how's about those flashy visuals, eh?

2. inFamous

Six months ago, I would never have thought this game would make my Top 5 list, let alone go all the way up to #2. But the hectic action and combination of platforming and action totally got me, and I easily put in a good 30-40 hours running around, collecting everything I could find and freeing 100% of each island. Some will complain about being shot all the time when on the ground, but there's a simple solution to that: ...right, don't be on the ground. ;) Besides, it's tons more fun to be flying around the rooftops, and it makes the game much easier and more accessible right from the start. I just loved the whole style and gameplay; even the storyline wasn't too bad. The almost ceaseless intensity of some of those later missions was just nuts, and I'd also like to add that I defeated the final boss on my first try. Okay, maybe that's not a big deal, but the bottom line is that I didn't regret one minute of my time with inFamous. Soooo want a sequel!

1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Yeah, it's cliched and expected but what can I say? This game is just in a class of its own. Everything about it, from the dynamic gameplay to the intricate and complex storyline, really hits its mark and solidified Hideo Kojima's position in this industry has a true master. Well, that's my opinion; I'm sure others believed he hit that exalted plateau before MGS4. I know I can always count on this franchise to deliver the most engaging and rewarding experiences in the game industry, and the fourth installment here didn't disappoint in any way. If you want to read a bit more about my thoughts on this singular title, feel free to read the editorial I wrote concerning the writing and storytelling. As you can see, it had a pretty heavy impact on me.

Anyway, that's my top 5. Titles that narrowly missed the list are both Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2, Warhawk, Flower, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, LittleBigPlanet, and Heavenly Sword. I'm also well aware that this list could change dramatically in the next year, what with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, God of War III, Heavy Rain, Gran Turismo 5, and Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time on the horizon. But hey, updating is half the fun.

I certainly think so, although there is no reason to just wander out into the city to check things out like in Fallout 3, you can explore the city and its folks all you want. The fact that you can climb anything is proof enough.

The art direction is really cool with comic book style cutscenes and impressive ingame visuals. While Empire city isn't as colorful and alive as Liberty City, it is certainly better quality graphically.

Hot Shots??! Wow, surprised to see that one at #5.

I have it too and like it a great deal, but there was WAYYYYYYYYYY too little content on the disc. There were only something like 6 f'ing courses you had to play over and over. They offered more as DLC, but they should have included AT LEAST 12 in the game off the shelf. The stat tracking also blows.

i thought there was way more than just 6. and it has online play. u can play against others. mic feature is also available. i havent beat the game yet. but for me, the content doesnt feel short at all. hot shots series are usually more fun to play with others than by urself. and it has its own version of ps home.

Uncharted turned out to be unexpectedly awesome . When I first started the game , I thought it was fun but nothing out of the ordinary . But after about an hour and half , it hooked me in . Whenever I took a break from playing , I couldn't wait to go back and advance the story . The amazingly crafted environments and the endearing characters made Uncharted a riveting experience .

5. PixelJunk Monsters
4. Gran Turismo 5 Prolouge
3. Killzone 2
2. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

And that's my new list. Don't get me wrong those other games are awesome but I tend to find myself playing these more often.

P.S. My top 5 will probably change as soon as I can get inFamous.

Hey Ben: Is it just me, or are you the only one actually running and maintaining the site?
Doesn't that get hard after a while?

Anyways, my top 5 would be;
6. Little Big Planet.
5. MotorStorm: Pacific Rift.
4. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune.
3. Killzone 2
2. (Blank)
1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots.

But why did I count down from 6 and not 5?
And why did I leave 2 blank?
Because MGS4 isn't even comparable to any of the above games!
If I were to put Killzone 2 as the number 2 spot, Snake would split and Kill-Zone into 2 pieces.
And MGS4 is a category on its own.
MGS4 is a huge leap in gaming, and nothing comes close to taking its' place!

Hey, just want to point this out:

It's not really nice if someone gets a thumbs-down for putting up their list, mainly (and most likely) because their game for #5 doesn't exactly matches another person's list, when that same game in his/her list is #1. That screams bias right there, and purely unethical (I will not believe that there are people like that on this site!).

Also, since everyone's been posting up their list, mine is:

1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
2. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift
3. Killzone 2
4. Resistance 2
5. Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction

My favorites...

5. Flower - A peaceful, soothing game that somehow leaves you more relaxed after playing it.

4. Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds. Jasmine and Sophie. Silly, cute and fun, and a *really* good golf game to boot.

3. Uncharted. Amazing game, absolutely drags you in, grabs you by the scruff of the neck and doesn't let go. The moment you come face to face with the 'zombies' was chilling and terrifying. If you didn't have a little moment of panic during that first firefight with them, you shouldn't be allowed to call yourself a gamer.

2. Valyria Chronicles. I love this game. You must play it.

1. Ratchet and Clank. Stunning, fun, amazing, entertaining. The flight in this game using the robot wings and controlled by the sixaxis is THE best illusion and sensation of flight I've ever had in any game. I love the Ratchet and Clank games anyway, but the fact that this one is utterly stellar from the get go would have made it number 1 anyway.

Other games that were near the top.

Motor Storm 1 & 2 - both very, very good racers.
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue - it's not the full game, it's just a prologue. Had it been the full game, it'd probably be number 1 on the list. Ultimately, Burnout Paradise (not exclusive) is better than any of these three racers, which means they don't qualify.
Super Stardust HD - the best twin stick shooter of this generation, I think.
Wipeout HD - Another racer, and a really good one at that.
Little Big Planet - Wow, just wow. But in the end not as much fun as the other 5, although it's easily the most innovative mainstream game on the PS3.
SingStar - fun game, lots of songs, but in the end, it's karaoke.

Wow, that's a lot of great exclusives, and that's without a single mention of Resistance 1 or 2, Killzone 2, or even MGS4.

That's a hell of a list of triple A exclusive titles, and it's doesn't even come close to listing all the good exclusives.

2) Wipeout HD
3) Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
4) Metal Gear Solid 4

As soon as GT5 comes out, it'll take its rightful place at #1, until then, Prologue will keep it warm for it.

Wish i could try out MLB O9 The Show, but then again i don't understand baseball and its not available in the UK.But i think it might had probably been in my top five list if i was a baseball fan, cause i have seen some screens and it looks that good!

@Wurm, I think socom is good too, now that all of the patches are out. It could use a little more support but its still pretty good.

I have Metal Gear Solid 4 and Little Big Planet both unopened.( I know I am crazy!) I was always into a game or two when both came out and just have not got around to opening them.

My top 5 exclusives SO FAR (I haven't played any on Ben's list yet):

1. Warhawk
2. R&C
3. LBP
4. flOw
5. SOCOM

...but those are the only exclusives I have really played. I just bought Eden and Savage Moon, so I can't judge them yet. I also have both Resistance games (haven't finished 1 or started 2), Eye of Judgment, and echochrome.

I'm sure MGS4, Uncharted, inFAMOUS, and maybe Valkyria or Heavenly Sword would make the list if I had played more than the demos.

Including non-exclusives:

1. Rock band 2 (no surprise)
2. Oblivion
3. Burnout Paradise
4. Warhawk
5. R&C

I also want to give kudos to Go Sudoku; for what it is, it's pretty good.

3) MLB 09 The Show
2) Metal Gear Solid 4
1) Valkyria Chronicles

Uncharted would've been higher if it wasn't so short :(

Next 5 I'm waiting for: (in no particular order)

* Afrika
* Katamari Forever
* Twisted Metal
* Uncharted 2
* Megazone 23 (English version if made though probably a long shot lol)

why cant heavenly sword get any love?
every article i read mentioning top ps3 exclusives heavenly sword never gets mentioned, i loved that game may be a little short but the graphics were verry impressive for its time.
the gameplay was allot of fun.
the story was decent.
and i dident think it was possiable to put that many enemies on screen without the game turning into a slide show.
and ratchet and clank.
all other exclusives are almost exactly the same as their counterparts i like games that are completley different, unique.
hence my excitement for heavy rain.
but my list would be.
5 metal gear solid 4.
4 heavenly sword.
3 infamous.
2 uncharted.
1 ratchet and clank future tools of destruction.

Metal Gear Solid 4 (Nuff said)
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (My 1st PS3 game that felt like it validated my $500 purchase)
LittleBigPlanet (Over 1 million lvls!)
Resistance 2 (that 8-player co-op was crack. It was our L4D.)

These kind of lists are always fun, I got a little nostalgic reading everyones choices. It makes me realize how far the PS3 has came and the great titles it has to offer.

Here goes mine.
1. MGS4 - roped in from the start. No game has been as engaging and absolutely polished is that. True Masterpiece.
2. KZ2 - The campaign was thrilling also, but MGS4 notches ahead as favorite for me. Elite modes last battle was white knuckled.
3. LBP - What can you say about a game that has my kids fighting over whose account to play on.
4. MLB The Show 09 - It's my baseball crack before the season started. Where else can I play as myself and be the CF for the Yankees? I'll tell you...nowhere.
5. Uncharted - Wasn't nearly as difficult as KZ2, but I had no complaints about finishing that game 3 times. Once when it released and the other two for platinum.

Flower was one of those that left me scratching my head. I didn't quite get what the fuss was about.

BTW Ben, Motorstorm PR wasn't really highly rated by critics. I think it was something like 81 overall on MetaCritic. That's sorta in the "faint praise range".

Can you explain what the difference is between underrated and under-appreciated? I would think those 2 terms map pretty well to one another.

Well, for one, I think Pacific Rift was appropriately rated, although I'd agree with a slightly higher 8.5 than the critical average of 8.2.

And I'm just being literal, I guess. When I see "underrated," I equate that to "ratings," and in that case, I don't think the review scores were lower than they should be for Pacific Rift. "Under-appreciated" I equate with popularity and sales; i.e., how well it sold and how well gamers speak of the game in their individual circles.

Well i agree with you on Killzone 2, that was overrated, though not a disapointment like the first. I personally find Resistance very enjoyable, it had a strong vision, though i do agree R2's story seemed it was unpolished.

As for LPB, I sold it ages ago, i did get bored, but that was when it was new and there werent so may brilliant created levels on it, I bought it again recently and was amazed by some of them. I was also bitter that they band my level about a Ladyboy destroying all the females in the worlds, it was great.

Ok so I see you love COD4 and games like that, sweet.

But I totally think KillZone 2 was not overrated ;)

I'm pretty sure it wasn't just another shooter (Call of Duties are another shooter) and it did feel epic (most times).

Sorry if I sounded pissed ^_^

When are people gonna learn that if you play a game and hate it you don't label it as overrated just cause you didn't like it.

I've heard people say KZ2 was over-rated before. With as much hype and expectation that game had for the past 3 years how could it possibley live up to it.

If you played the campaign and had a foray with the multiplayer, in a new unit of time, you will see how polished that game really is.

I recently booted it up after not playing it for 2 months and I was mesmerized at the detail in the trailer, just the trailer!

Xbots have every reason to be jealous of that game.

1.Metal Gear Solid 4:Guns Of The Patriots-Frankly the most polished game to date

2.KillZone 2-A top notch shooter that is innovative and smooth

3.LittleBig Planet-A game that in my mind will never end or be recreated

4.WarHawk-A game that personifies shooters as casual and hardcore all at once

5.SOCOM:Confrontation-A little biased because of my SOCOM backround but I love the strategy in this one

6.Resistance 2-A fast paced multiplayer and unforgettable single player

7.Uncharted Drake's Fortune-Honestly the best single player only game I have played that wasn't an RPG

8.inFAMOUS-Fun,Gritty,Karma Storylines, and Smacking Prototype in the mouth put this one on my list

9.MLB 09:The Show-The greatest baseball game I have played to date,polish,smooth gameplay, and realistic.....EVERYTHING!!

10.MotorStorm Pacific Rift-Stepping up every aspect of MotorStorm 1 in a way only Sony Exclusives can

Sorry To Many Great Games For A Top Five Only

Everything you said matches the game 100% and all those games are fire(excluding No 5).

Well, seeing how I buy used & wait till they've dropped to my own price point, I don't own any current games, and none from Ben's top five either just yet.

I do own 35 semi-older PS3 games, so I can only cull my own list from them(BTW, since I don't own a 360 yet, I'm not sure if any of these listed below, are also multi-plats or not).

1. Farcry 2.
2. The Darkness
3. Overlord:Raising Hell
4. Resistance 1
5. Fear

BTW, "Farcry2" is also "my #1 game pick" out of around 1000 games I have in 12 different console collections too(so far).

The object was to pick PS3 exclusives, of which Resistance is the only one in your list.

Given the circumstances of your comment, not a bad list.

With all the games (and no time to play sometimes) it was hard to make this list but here it goes.

5. Resistance 2
4. R&CF:TOD
3. Killzone 2
2. inFAMOUS
1. MGS4:GotP

Just missed the cut: Resistance FoM, WipeoutHD, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, LittleBigPlanet.

-NG:S2
-The Last Guardian
-White Knight

Antone who liked infamous should try prototype (unless you need an excellent story or something) because they're similar and I think prototype was a great game.
