Top games on ps3 part 2

Continued from previous post...

Released October 28, 2008

The game revolves around the player's control of a small character, known as a Sackboy or Sackgirl — or gender-neutral Sackperson — owing to their appearance, in a variety of platforming scenarios. Though the game features a set of pre-built levels for the player to explore, the game's customisable nature is equally important, from altering the player's character and personal space, to building entirely new objects and levels, and then sharing and playing them online with                                                                                                                other players as part of the LittleBigPlanet community.

Red Dead Redemption
Released May 18, 2010

Most of the game's story takes place in the year 1911 in the American Old West and follows John Marston, a former outlaw, while he sets out to hunt down his former gang members. Marston's wife and son are taken hostage by the government in exchange for his services. Having no other choice, he sets out to bring his three former gang members to justice.
Upon its release, Red Dead Redemption was met with universal critical acclaim averaging 95% on both review aggregate websites Metacritic and GameRankings, making it one of the highest rated video games for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on both websites. Reviewers praised the visuals, the music, the open world gameplay, and the story. According to the NPD Group Red Dead Redemption has sold two million copies in the month of June alone.
        Red Dead Redemption gives the player a large open world environment allowing the player to explore. Players can interact with the environment and engage in combat with enemies, using various firearms. Different breeds of horses are the main forms of transportation. Swimming is not an option, as the protagonist John Marston cannot swim — he will drown if he ventures too far into deep water.[6]
As well as following the main storyline, players can take part in random events they encounter as they explore the West. These include public hangings, ambushes, pleas for assistance, stranger encounters, drive-by shootings, and dangerous animal attacks. For example, if a group of people ride into town firing guns in the air, the player can kill them, and will receive a bonus of honor and fame. Players can also take part in optional side activities ranging from standoffs, gambling, and hunting animals for pelts, meat and other various items.
Red Dead Redemption makes use of a morality system where players have the ability to gain positive or negative 'honor'. Some of the ways to gain positive honor include taking an outlaw alive instead of killing him, or saving a kidnapped innocent. Negative honor can be gained for committing crimes including killing or robbing civilians. This works along with another system, 'fame,' showing and governing how people react based on Marston's honor status. If Marston has negative honor, lawmen and civilians will usually say obscenities to Marston and feel insecure around him; lawmen will even threaten to kill him next time they see him. If he has positive honor, lawmen and civilians will usually greet him and feel safe around him.[7] As Marston's Fame and honor increase bounty hunters think twice about attempting an arrest and people turn away from his criminal behavior.

Fallout 3
Released October 28, 2008


Fallout 3 takes place in a post-apocalyptic, atompunk, retro-futurist Washington D.C., northeast Virginia and parts of Maryland in the year 2277, 200 years after a world war over resources which ended in nuclear holocaust in 2077. The player character (PC) lives with his/her widower father, James (voiced by Liam Neeson), in Vault 101 (one of several fallout shelters in the D.C. area). One day, the PC wakes up to find that James has left the Vault and ventured into the Capital Wasteland, as the area in and around D.C. is now known. The Vault Overseer becomes suspicious and orders his men to kill the PC, forcing the player to go out into the Capital Wasteland where he/she must follow James' trail and learn why he left. Along the way, the player will encounter various factions, including the Brotherhood of Steel, a techno-religious organization with roots in the U.S. military from the American West Coast, the Outcasts, a group of Brotherhood of Steel exiles, and the Enclave, the elitist and genocidal remnants of the U.S. government.
