2. LittleBigPlanet, Sony - PS3

What we said: LittleBigPlanet may well save the PS3 (if it indeed needs saving), it may be the most creative game of all time, it could well usher in a new era of user-generated gaming, and has a chance of bringing about a 2D platforming renaissance, but all those things are down to you. The game Media Molecule has created won't do these things alone, but if gamers create the levels we think they're capable of, we might be looking at one of the most important games this console generation has seen. As it stands it's an entertaining platfomer, highly polished training tool and potential gateway to greatness. We're hoping it will end up being much more.

1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Konami - PS3

What we said: Metal Gear Solid 4 had a lot to live up to and it's done so brilliantly. It's a game that will go down in history as one of the most ambitious and cinematic ever made, but also, finally, and more importantly, it will go down as a MGS game with gameplay that doesn't polarise opinion. It's not without it problems, most notably in the change of pace in the last third and the often laborious cut scenes (if you could play even half of its best cinematic moments MGS4 would wipe the floor with the best games we've ever seen), but MGS fans won't care.

"no way man, where's mirrors edge, where's resistance 2?"
First one not exclusive, latter is on page 2. Read the articale before you post? :P (also, game being too long? you try to finish them in one sitting or something? nothing wrong with having a smackload of content(unless the game is boring, and then the game has bigger issues than it's lenght))

Cute trick on the title, I came here thinking "10 good ps3 exclusives, this i gotta see" and half of them were psp titles. Still, the title did say "playstation" without the three.
Then again, x360 list had lips and 2 multiplatforms, so apparently most of the great games are multiplatforms, which ofc is great for gamers :)

I agree with all the picks, but it's a shame you didn't mention Persona 4.

I would've put Eden instead of Monsters. Monsters is good, but I just prefer Eden so much more. But to each his own, and we all know reviews/top 10 lists/game of the year hullabaloo is all about opinion anyway.

Because they have yet to play VC, and Persona 4 as well, that's why they're not on the list.

Where are Valkyria Chronicles, Naruto UNS or GT 5 Prologue?
They are all better than PJ Monsters or Ratchet QoB.
Especially Valkyria Chronicles, it's one of the most underrated games this year.
