    Metal Gear Solid 4
    Uncharted 2 (you can get the first cheap now, but 2 is better)
    Assassins Creed 2 (same as uncharted, part 1 is cheap but this is better)
    Infamous
    Little Big Planet if the wife wants to play too
    Modern Warfare 2 for online play
    Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (again better than the first, no need to play it)
    Bioshock
    Resident Evil 5
    Ratchet and Clank Future (first one is cheap now, i have not played the new one, but i'm sure its great)

    Ive heard MW2 is either a love-it or hate-it game?

    Have heard lots of good things about unchartered 2, and i loved Resident Evil on original PS - so will have to get RE5 i think

    Good list. These are the must-haves. Must have RPGs, if you're into them: Demon's Souls, Valkyria Chronicles. You can skip MW2 if you want, unless you're into online console FPS's

    Adding to that list:

    God of War Collection
    Heavenly Sword
    Killzone 2

    There are also a ton of must have PSN games and some non exclusives as well.

    Exactly. Shitty story, 4 and a half hour campaign, bad multiplayer (IMO). Definitely not a must have.

    Uncharted 1 & 2 = mind blowing single player, modern indiana jones'ish story, great mulitplayer in 2
    inFamous = sly cooper meets ulitimite spiderman interesting story, cool plot twist, mostly fun to just run aroud and be a hero.. or a villian!
    Littlebigplanet = classic mario like gameplay, infinite replay value.. literaly.. fun for everyone even ur GF, or if you just like platformers, like me.
    Burnout Paradise = great classic arcade racing, tons of stuff to do, robust online mode and killer bang for buck, only $19!
    Metal Gear Solid 4 = epic story, IMO the best in the series, prob should play MGS 1 and 2 first tho...
    Batman Arkham Asylum = batman game finally done right, nuff said.
    Ratchet and Clank Future : Tools of destruction = its like playing a pixar movie with guns!
    Ratchet and clank future : a crack in time = a pixar movie.. with guns! you cant go wrong.

    -
    PSN
    -

    Critter Crunch = addictive puzzler, all hand drawn art, coop online and off, only $7 theres DLC that costs more then that.
    Ratchet and Clank Future : quest for booty = like a pixar mo... you know where this is going...
    Flower = best use of the tilt controls on the system, and utterly relaxing, hard to explain, its not as hippy as it sounds.
    Shatter = atari breakout (aka brick breaker) cranked up to 11 with awesome electronic soundtrack, worth it almost for the music alone.

    id say anything off that list is a keeper, but thats just cause i own all that :o

    PS3 crew>*

    also throw in Motorstorm2. Online play is rad and the griefing you see is hilarious. Also street fighter4. If you're gonna play it with a pad only do it on the Trey.

    ive always wanted to actually play motorstorm, i mean i own 1 and ive rented motorstrom 2 but i wanna play this game ..

    i wanna parachute out of a plane down to the race track how fucking epic would that be?
    [y]VytGVo-Ud8o&[/y]

    whats this game? it looks awesome, its nothing like the game i paid $60 for...
    [y]gr8SOM3nv68&[/y]

    where is that event, with the figure 8 track?
    [y]J-W1RuR-a4A&f[/y]

    when motorstorm 1 is idling on the title screen i shows a buggy jumping through a ring of fire doing a corkscreaw? wheres that? fuck racing i wanna do that!

    motorstorm has always looked fantastic ... LOOKED .. however it ends up being just a bland burnout in the dirt...

    i have a beef with motorstorm btw :o
