  • Ehhh I had to go with Infamous. Resident Evil 5 was good but the 2-player co-op and shift further towards standard run-and-gun game with the infinite supply of ammo made the game more generic than RE4 to me. Plus I will never consider playing RE5 alone, unless it's for the mercenaries challenges which I have little interest in :oops:
  • Assassin's Creed 2 really nailed the open-world element and the parkour/platforming was fun, even if it seemed like you occasionally went somewhere you didn't want to. Combat was also better than the first one.
  • I chose Infamous as well. This game is a must-play for PS3 owners. I really enjoyed it.
  • U2 gave me a huge game boner throughout the entire thing. There was never a dull moment in that game--even with the puzzle sections.

    Jam and I can agree on this bad boy.
  • I picked Uncharted 2 but it was a tough decision between that and inFAMOUS for me.
  • Infamous had more moments that annoyed me.

    Batman was a little to easy.

    Uncharted had the perfect balance of challenge, therefore creating a perfectly fluid experience of action and adventure like no game before it.
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, I can't even begin to explain how much I love that game.
  • Uncharted 2. Raised the bar for Action games. Intense action scenes that played better than most blockbuster action movies. Drake is one tough SOB :!:
  • I choose RE5. The only reason is because I haven't played any of the others yet.
  • REALLY hard pick between U2 and AC2, but i have 2 go with U2. The entire game just blew my mind.
  • I voted inFamous here because its more of an action game than AC2 is. I love that the action never seems to stop. So much fun!

Howdy, Stranger!
