Top PS3 Games of All Time

Sony’s solid first party lineup meant that some of the greatest games of the past generation were only available on the PS3. Naughty Dog shone with the Uncharted trilogy and The Last of Us, while Sucker Punch produced two stellar InFamous offerings. Insomniac also brought forward the Resistance trilogy, before becoming a multiplatform studio.

The latter stages of the PS3 was also when Sony stood up and took notice of the indie scene, bringing with it some of the very best games on the market. Journey and the Unfinished Swan came as a double pack, the former becoming many people’s game of the year.

There was also the multiplatform games, with the likes of Grand Theft Auto 5, Bioshock, Arkham City and much more to enjoy.

Early stumbles aside, the PlayStation 3 proved to be a great console with some amazing games. Here is VideoGamer’s list of the top PS3 games of all time.
