Thinking man's PS3 games?
I do not own a Playstation 3, or any other of the current generation of video game consoles. I still have a PS2 and a Game Cube from the previous generation, but mainly use the PS2 as DVD player nowadays. But the announcement from Sony that their new version of the PS3 would only cost 299 $=€ is of course an opportunity to think again whether buying a Playstation 3 would be worth it now.
Not just because of the price, but also because there are a lot more games available for the PS3 now than two years ago. But as I haven't watched that market much, I'm not so sure whether the existing PS3 games are a good fit to my gaming habits. When I last checked the PS3 games available, just after release of the console, there was a heavy emphasis on fast, twitchy, action games, with no turn-based games, or slower strategy titles and role-playing games in sight. Are there games like tactical RPGs on the PS3 now? Or more traditional role-playing games without twitchy combat?
If you have a Playstation 3, and knowing my preferences, what PS3 games would you recommend to me?
