Top PS3 online games
We've already gone through our Top 30 Games of 2014 for, but we figured we'd leave Sony's OG PlayStation 3 for last. Though its successor has arrived, PlayStation 3 lives on, and actually provides a staggering amount of exclusive content in 2014 considering how long in the tooth it is.
Below are the biggest 30 PS3 games coming to the console in 2014, covering a wide array of genres. What did we miss? What would you include in the list?
- Exclusive? No. | Release Date: Q4, 2014
When Gearbox released Aliens: Colonial Marines in 2013, the once promising-looking game failed to live up to any of its pre-release hype. Colonial Marines was an unmitigated disaster, and naturally soured gamers’ appetites for more Aliens. Yet, here we are, fresh on the heels of a new Aliens-related announcement. And it’s... well... it sounds pretty cool, actually.
CounterSpy, at its core, is a side-scrolling spy-action game that’s as much about exploration as it is about combat. While it definitely invokes a sort of Metroidvania feel, it’s really its own game, one rooted in the espionage and intrigue of the Cold War, when it seemed like we were just a moment away from nuclear destruction every day of the week. So consider CounterSpy’s inclusion on this list a hope that the game lives up to what it’s capable of.
Dark Souls II
- Exclusive? No. | Release Date: March 11, 2014
Prepare to die. That’s the original Dark Soul’s tagline, and when you played the game, you realized rather quickly it was an apt warning. Dark Souls launched in 2011 and was a spiritual successor to the PS3-exclusive Demon’s Souls, but it was only when Dark Souls came out – and reached players who didn’t necessarily own a PlayStation 3 – that the entire hardcore, brutally difficult mantra of the experience truly proliferated and resonated.
With Dark Souls II, you’re getting more of the same, and frankly, fans of the series wouldn’t have it any other way. More ridiculous difficulty, more unforgiving enemies, and more surprises around every corner: Dark Souls II will likely be one of the most challenging game released in 2014 on any platform. It may be disappointing that Dark Souls II isn’t on next-gen consoles (at least, not yet), but look at it this way… at least it’ll ring out the old generation with a considerable bang.
- Exclusive? No. | Release Date: September 09, 2014
There are few games – if any – coming out in 2014 that have as high expectations attached to it as Destiny. Destiny comes from Bungie – the studio that brought the world Halo (and Marathon before that) – so it should come as no surprise that gamers the world ‘round are expecting big, big things from it. The good news is that from everything we’ve seen of Destiny since its accidental reveal in November of 2012, there’s cause to be excited.
