After being convinced by Tony Ponce,†who said that there is no better time to buy a console than at the tail end of a generation (cheap price, firmware fixed, 7 years of exclusives)
, I decided to finally dish out the money and have a Station to Play on. I thought it would be interesting to have someoneís fresh perspective on the console, after most of itís exclusive titles had come out, so here are my thoughts on some of the PS3's many exclusives (as well as some not-very exclusives that I played first on a PS3 this summer).
The Last of Us
Due to a lack of funds, I havenít gotten round to picking up the other†Metal Gear Solid†
games, as I surely will, hearing great things about†Snake Eater†
and†Guns of the Patriots
, as well as wanting to catch up before†The Phantom Pain
†is released. Nevertheless, I had a chance to play the very first†Metal Gear Solid
, and let me tell you, it was great. The stealth, and even more, the controls, were quite modern for a game from 1998. This mustíve been one of the best looking PSOne games, because it looks superb, even today. By comparison, I canít bring myself to play†Ocarina of Time
†in its original form due to how badly it has aged. I canít think of much else to say about this classic, but I will leave you with a question, ďDo you think love can bloom even on a battlefield?Ē
Apart from the games themselves, I found myself liking how lightweight the PS3 controller was, and it felt strange holding the bulky 360 controller after a while away from it.
In general, the Playstation has impressed me. Maybe itís just playing all these stellar games in a short span of time, but the quality of these very diverse games simply amaze me. And donít worry, thereís still plenty more for me to play - I just havenít gotten round to it yet. Leave me a few suggestions of what I should consider picking up next - on my list are the remaining†Metal Gear Solid
ís,†Ni no Kuni
