Top PS3 Games of 2014
There’s still life in the old dog yet, as support for the PS4’s older brother shows no sign of slowing down. Sony weren’t joking about that ten year life cycle.
We’ve already seen some huge releases on PS3 this year. The long-awaited Dark Souls 2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 have already been and gone, as has Watch_Dogs, a game far more associated with the PS4. Looking forward, the console will enjoy its own versions of next-gen favourites such as Destiny and Metal Gear Solid V, and you’ll be surprised at just how good they look running on the old hardware. In fact, most of the big next-gen games on the horizon will be cross-gen releases, so while they might be missing out on better graphics, PS3 owners aren’t exactly being left behind yet.
In addition, PS Plus subscribers continue to receive monthly treats which add value to the system and contribute to the wealth of new titles still flowing its way. Have a nose to see which ones have made our list.
A complex and enjoyable JRPG, if not a brilliant one.
An enjoyable intriguing piece of DLC that doesn't add much to the almighty experience that was The Last Of Us.
Lands a little short of brilliance.
The fundamentals are beginning to tire, but this is surprisingly decent DLC.
A perfectly serviceable DLC offering.
Autosport feels like a game made purely for the GRID fanbase. A great variety of racing disciplines and true wheel-to-wheel action, Autosport does a good job of returning the series to form.
Valiant Hearts is a confused game, but also a brave one tackling difficult subject matter.
Flawed, yes. Fun? Certainly. A total failure? Not really.
A confident reinvention, despite the obviously low budget.
Activision's toys-to-life series is still wonderfully entertaining, but Trap Team's relentless encouragement to buy new toys can be draining on your enthusiasm – and your wallet.
