We are coming to the end of the console cycle and we here at Casually Addicted feel that it’s time to honour the top games for every system currently available.
It’s up to you how you view this list. You might see it as a buyer’s guide to the best games, the overall best game list or something completley different. But it is nothing more than our top games for a specific console. For a list like this there is no right or wrong answer and everyone’s opinion is different. This is a list that took hours of discussions to create and differing opinions of games clashed time and time again.
So without further a dew here are Casually Addicted’s Top 25 PlayStation 3 Games
As stated in my review back on our old website, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a bit of a sleeper hit last year and it was only when the game was released did most people understand truly what it was all about.
It’s mix of cyberpunk charm and stealth with honest brutality (should you require it) gave us a game where we could really choose how we wanted to play. It’s ability to make you think outside the box also won us over.
While it isn’t a game without it’s faults, Deus Ex: Human Revolutions shady plot and augmentation heavy skill set kept us going with multiple playthroughs and many many hours lost to finding the perfect way past an area full of enemies.

It was way back in 2009 when Sucker Punch introduced the world to Cole McGrath. And while his initial rapport with players wasn’t as likeable as in the sequel the game was great enough anyway to let us rule Empire City as we saw fit.
While the choice of being good or evil isn’t a new one in videogames being a good comic book hero or a bad one was. It was a move that allowed inFamous to be more than just GTA featuring an electric man. The game became something more because of it and it allowed players to grow an attachment eventually to Cole as the game progressed past his icy cold personality at the start but also to the game world itself. Empire City became your play ground and the inhabitants responded to your actions, in a sense, inFamous gave you the ability to become a god. What type of god though was up to you.

As we all know the beloved Sackboy continued his adventures into 2011 for the PS3. LittleBigPlanet 2 is a clear choice for us, not necessarily for its characters (although how can you not like Sackboy) but because of the impact that the LittleBigPlanet series has made on the gaming world.
Media Molecule not only made a very quirky game but they gave the players the ability to create such unique and interesting levels that I am sure even the developers didn’t think was possible. There are now over 7 million levels that have been created throughout the LittleBigPlanet franchise and with that many levels the game could in theory be endless.
Bioshock is the one game here at Casually Addicted that no one in the team actually played in its prime, which is a shame for all of us as we love it now. 2K games released Bioshock in 2007 so it has been around for a while and it truly stands the test of time.
You often here how Bioshock 1 is better than Bioshock 2 and going by the majority vote it seems pretty clear. From the moment you enter this exciting new world you are not only intrigued to explore, but you are afraid for what the next Big Daddy will do to you. You can pick up a copy of Bioshock for next to nothing now, I paid £2.99 in the Steam summer sale, this game is a classic and if you haven’t already then go grab it.
With such a variety of first person shooters available on the PS3 a game really had to stand out to be recognised as one of the best. Battlefield 3 may not have had the best single player but it excelled with the multilayer delivering an experience unique to the Battlefield franchise.
The Frostbite 2 engine provides one of the best looking games on the PlayStation, combine this with a destructible environment and you are guaranteed to have some fun. When it comes to Battlefield however it is the vehicles that separate it from it’s competition, teaming up with a buddy in a tank or helicopter can lead to some of the most intense battles available though multilayer to date. The Battlefield 3 multiplayer does everything it has set out to do and as a result it has earned it’s place on this list. If the single player campaign provided the same quality as the multiplayer it could have easily positioned higher up the list.
