CVG Lists The Top 50 PS3 Games
Any "Top" list is always very subjective - unless you're strictly going by numbers; i.e., review scores, which isn't any fun, anyway - so it's always interesting to read such assembled countdowns.
CVG ran their list of the top 50 PS3 games thus far and as you can see, last year's award-dominator, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, has topped the list, while the 2008 masterpiece from Kojima and Co., Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is in at #2. We certainly agree with that although personally, I keep flip-flopping those two in my head; it's very tough to determine which of those two groundbreaking games is "better" than the other. Then there's Modern Warfare 2 at #3, which we're really not going to comment on - should've been Grand Theft Auto IV, in my opinion - and Assassin's Creed II very high at #4. It even topped the recently released God of War III and although that may sound a little kooky, I distinctly recall being in love with ACII and saying how it didn't get enough love at some awards shows. It really is a damn fine game and certainly one of the best of the generation. The two Bioshock games also get rated high and last year's challenging and innovative RPG, Demon's Souls, rounds out the top 10.
So, what do you think? I think the only glaring issue is that Heavy Rain is way too low at #12 (it's easily in the top 5, in our minds) but other than that, it appears solid. You might like that Final Fantasy XIII is up there at #15; other sources would've probably put it down in the 20s or 30s.
