Want input for an older USED PS3 title to play...

Post by bhouze » Tue Jul 29, 2014 3:35 pm

As I am nearing completion of Saints Row I will soon be looking for another game to play and whittle away the time.
I usually look at the local pawn shops for used titles as they are less than $20.
I liked Saints row 3 but found 4 to be just a rehash of 3, I enjoyed Fallout and New Vegas as they at least change the story while retaining a solid system.
I also played the heck out of diablo and find that eldar scrolls is a bit too slow in the action and the combat system sucks. Resistance sucked all round.
I would prefer to stay away from shooters and online games that are not co-op. I really don't like getting killed by some 12 year old in south dakota.
Just looking for some suggestions for a title to try out.
I've been considering: Borderlands (but not for online play) as it's a common title at the local pawn shops and also XCOM seems pretty readily available (I have played this on PC years ago)
Also of note looking for a game I can play in short bursts and get stuff done. sometimes the 'family' comes first and I can only get a small window on the tv when crummy shows are on.
just wish they would release a really good space fleet combat game like master of orion or eve for PS

Thanks for throwing in your opinions.

I have red dead.
I skipped the training (oops) and went to the nearest town, keep having to clear out the same canyon gang over and over.
No where near to getting the mauser.
what a waste of time..
Even five finger fillet wasn't what the hint sites claimed the order would be... so much for easy money.

I had more fun with port royale 3 (and I used unarmed convoys so I wouldn't have to use the crappy ship combat)

Maybe they will port over the Sharknado 2 game.....

Then Borderlands. Everyone I know who plays it loves it.

Ditto to BL, loved both games. Same with the Assassin's Creed series, not much replay-ability but the games last a good while. AC1 is a great story but the game play can get a little repetitive, however it does set up the rest of them nicely. You can jump into AC2 without too much of a worry though.
Positive feedback I have left for but have not received any in return: Stephen, oldgamer56

I'd recommend "Brutal Legend". You can find it used for around five bucks and is a blast if your games don't have to be too serious. It's like a video game of Heavy Metal. Possibly the most fun I had with a PS3 game.

Valkyria Chronicles is a fantastic steam-punkish WW2-ish turn based strategy game if you're into that sort of thing.
