The top 5 games PlayStation fans wish they could play

1 min read

angryMob.jpg posted an article that we covered previously about the top PlayStation games that Xbox fans want. Well now is the time for the reverse story..

So what games would the PS fans kill for on their console?

5. Dead Rising (not a fan myself)
4. Fable 2 (uh it’s not released?)
3. Gears of War 1 & 2 (Gears 1 is enough reason to own the console)
2. Mass Effect (but you can get it on PC now… )
1. Halo 3 (You knew it was coming)

Honestly, I am disappointed with their choices.. Gears and Halo had to be there… Mass Effect was a main reason until the recent fantastic port to the PC.. Dead Rising wasn’t anything special in my humble opinion and Fable 2 is still a pipe dream..

After having a bit more of a think about it I think I would chuck out Dead Rising for Viva Pinata, Fable 2 for Crackdown and Mass Effect for Bioshock… until it’s PS3 port arrives…

    Kinda disappointed in their choices too, Gears and Halo 3 would certainly be there for me but then again, what’s left that’s not also available on the PS3? Bioshock would definitely be there for me until the PS3 port materializes.

    Well the only one on that list for me would be gears 2. 1 is also available on PC. Although I’d have to say that the PC version wasn’t as much fun as the console version. I’d rather put bioshock in the number 1 spot, gears 1,2 in number 2. Halo3 probably has to be there as well. Mass Effect or Fable 2? I don’t know, maybe people out there want it but I won’t buy a 360 to play it.

    With GTA4 I still have my doubts whether crackdown is a game PS3 fans really really want. Aaaaanyhow, time for some tong in cheek, I doubt any PS3 owner craves for any of those games atm :p

    For me, i would go with BioShock, then Gears. Nothing else really.

    Don’t forget Forza 2, I’m sure you guys would enjoy it.

  • Fable, yes…
    Gears, yes…

    Halo 3… Hahahahahahaha!

    hmmm, yeah come to think of it, I’d much rather play Forza than something like dead rising.

  • Fox1

    PGR is also an interesting racer 😎

    Is dead rising the zombie game, where there is a whole span of them? Gotta admit I always thought it sounded cool.
    Only other one would be gears for me. But I still wouldnt buy a xbox for these!

  • Ye, the zombie one in the mall sounded cool.

    Actualy, Dead Rising is the weakest game on that list.

  • I wouldn’t think so with GT5

    True, but these lists don’t make sense atm to be honest. GT5 is not availible yet. Neither is fable 2 or killzone 2, gears 2 or whatever. So you really can’t bring those into the eq yet.

    That’s just my personal opinion atm. If I have to choose between dead rising or forza 2, I’d take forza 2.

  • I think there’s fair expectation around promising IP and established brands, especially when you start getting to 4s and 5s.

  • What I do find interesting though is the more “Playstation games” get released, like DMC, GTA or MGS it’s become quite clear what core value differences are between “Nintendo Games”, “PS Games” and “Xbox games”.
