BioShock is the spiritual successor to the System Shock series, an FPS set in a destroyed objectivist underwater utopia. Focuses on plasmids (basically magic, such as lightning) as much as guns. Noted for its fantastic atmosphere.

In BioShock 2 you play as a prototype Big Daddy on a quest to rescue his little sister. While the setting may not feel as new as it did in BioShock, the gameplay has seen noticeable improvement. Combat is fun, hacking is streamlined and the game has a terrific story with a fantastic ending. Multiplayer can be surprisingly fun.

If you prefer System shock game style you might not like this game. Nevertheless, its a great game on its own merit with a fantastic story. Give it a shot even if you are not a fan of the first one (and if you are its a must) or other shooters in general.

|Spiritual Successor to Demon Souls, and ''arguably ''harder. It improves over every aspect of its predecessor, being at least twice as big and featuring a fully streamlined world, scarcer resources (no more carrying 99 of each grass). Focuses on a more open world design over Demon Souls' disjointed levels. The tendency system gave way to a new faction system, with each of the 9 covenants having it's own mission and thus expanding a lot the way the multiplayer system works. A world of both frustrating and rewarding challenges awaits as you fight your way through tons of incredibly atmospheric dungeons. And you will die in every one of them, multiple times. And you will like it. A lot.

|Places you in the presumably smelly shoes of another Chosen Undead, this time dispatched to conquer the forgotten kingdom of Drangleic. The least punishing of the ''Souls'' games by far (for example, Life Protection rings no longer disappear after breaking and can be repaired) but still a substantial challenge in its own right. PVP matchmaking is now determined based on the sum total Souls you've collected, rather than your current level. Among other minor changes: You can respec at least a dozen times in a given playthrough using a consumable, bonfires can be used to regenerate certain items and make enemies more powerful, and the weapon smithing system has been streamlined. Expanded with a trio of DLC's that add plenty of goodies and new things to kill.

|Set in the fictional Fortune City which is modeled after Las Vegas. This installment includes co-op, a satirical multiplayer mode, and a dramatically increased number of zombies (roughly around 7,000 according to Joystiq). You can combine items to form crazy weapons (like a lawnmower+sweeper that sucks in the body parts it chops up). Don't worry if you haven't played the first one, just start with this since it's the same but more fun. "Off the Record", an unusual alternate version of this game is also available. The role of Chuck is replaced by Frank West and there are a bunch of gameplay improvements. If you haven't played this, get that.

|Improves on DiRT 2 by adding weather conditions (snow, rain, fog, wet track) and also night racing. That, and the Gymkhana, which is a very fun event where you do crazy stuff such as spins and jumps in a closed parking-lot style arena. Has tons of cars, including old-time legends such as the Audi Quattro Pikes Peak and lots of cars from the 60s, 70s and 90s. Every location in the game is different from DiRT 2, which makes this a very fresh experience (meaning 100% less deserts and jungles, and 100% more mountains and savannas). Actually almost every bit of content in this game is new so it's worth to keep your DiRT 2 copy and get one of this as well since they both have great exclusive tracks and cars, so this sequel doesn't kill its predecessor in any way.<br />

|The story is pretty generic by WRPG standards, the graphics are somewhat muddy, and the controls aren't the greatest, especially considering that it's designed for the PC. But, hey, it's got some decent interactive storytelling, and while the characters can be kind of annoying at points, they're not terrible. If you want WRPGs on the PS3, you don't have a whole lot of options, and Dragon Age: Origins is decent, if a bit average. Stay away from the sequel though, and be sure to get the Ultimate Edition so you don't have to deal with the game telling you to buy its DLC.

|After a couple of not-so-great games, the Driver series is finally back with a great game. Gone are the horrible on-foot mechanics that almost ruined the series (thank God). Also, it has a crazy-ass premise: Tanner is in a coma, but he doesn't know it. He does however notice that he has a new ability called Shift; he can FLY INTO THE AIR AND JUMP INTO ANOTHER CAR NEARBY whenever he wants. It sounds dumb but it totally works. There's also so much to do from various challenges, races, multiplayer modes and unlockable movie chases that you get to re-enact: Bullitt, The Blues Brothers, The French Connection, Vanishing Point and much more. Also, for the first time in the series: 130+ official licensed cars, including the Dodge Charger and Challenger, Ford Mustang, Bentley Continental GT, Fiat 500 and the Delorean DMC-12.

|Beginning with your father asking you what gender you are (and the option to change your mind at the age of 19), this sandbox RPG has been described as Bethesda's Oblivion, but with guns. Explore a post-apocalyptic wasteland as the Lone Wanderer after escaping the Vault your father left you to die in. Butthurt optional. Adds Karma (don't expect it to make sense, though :D) to the mix, allowing you to be either a saint or a total asshole who enslaves children and blows up a town. Obtaining the Game of the Year Edition is highly recommended, as there are a number of excellent DLC quests, as well as the Broken Steel expansion, which allows the game to continue after the original ending. Outclassed on almost all fronts by Obsidian's Fallout: New Vegas, but still a moderately entertaining game.

|Take Fallout 3, connect it to old Fallout canon in a meaningful way, add a faction reputation system, fully realized companions, and a level of content more reminiscent of Oblivion than Fallout 3. Made by Obsidian with the engine from Bethesda, New Vegas takes you into the Mojave Desert and lets you kick around in a sandbox full of infuriatingly powerful insects. Considered by Fallout fans to be more of a true Fallout game, the potential for roleplaying (and for acting like a moron when you give yourself 1 Intelligence) is greater, though the game can be quite buggy for some people. The Ultimate Edition adds in all of the DLC, which are all at least above average and worth a playthrough. Highly recommended to play this over Fallout 3.

|Good gameplay mechanics. Gunplay feels realistic enough to be challenging, and arcade-like enough to be fun. While the game tries to bloat play styles, it mostly comes down to either going balls out or being stealthy. Pretty fun otherwise. Missions are your typical open-world type with races, hunting, assassinations, etc. The story has a good concept, but is bogged down by being overtly-pretentious and unnecessarily surreal at times. Characters are irritating, with the most <s>interesting</s> ''fucking annoying'' character Vaas getting little screen-time.

|A beautifully done JRPG that has tons of things to do in it. As Oliver, you're sent to save an alternate universe so that your mom can be brought back to life in your world. The game's combat can be played out in many ways; Oliver can go into battle as a mage and wreck shit with his spells (be sure to have LOADS of MP though), or send out a familiar to fight the battle in a more traditional turn-based, melee approach. The familiars are pretty cool, and are basically Pokemon, in the sense that they can evolve, learn new moves, and also cast special magic. This is a great game, and a good entry-level JRPG for someone who isn't afraid to grind occasionally. Many of the environments have a filter over them that gives them the look of being painted, which is very nice. As with Studio Ghibli movies, expect really nicely animated cutscenes (that are a bit few and far between), and the typical off the wall humor. Another great thing about this game is the fact that there are many different variations of enemies within the game, with each specific area having a set type of wildlife. Plenty of side quests, too.

|A sandbox game. You play as Wei Shen, undercover cop who has infiltrated a Hong Kong triad. The game takes place on a fictionalized version of the island. Solid story. The gameplay has quite some variety but none of the missions/activities really stand out as being particularly bad. The combat is pretty good. It takes elements from the recent Batman games like how the enemies attack you one at time and the and the counter system is overpowered. Has about 15 hours worth of story (10-12 if you have ever played a game before) and another 15 if you want to 100% the game. Makes references to some of the classic martial arts action flicks. Doesn't do anything really new or different aside from the setting, but it's still a lot of fun.

|Another (after Legend) complete reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, and far more radical this time. Follows young Lara on her first ever adventure during which she will find herself struggling to survive on a mysterious, mythical island after her ship, on which she travelled along with her crew, gets wrecked. Has a good story and gameplay, pretty graphics and semi-open world with some additional stuff to do. Unfortunately there is little to none actual Tomb Raiding, but you will have plenty of fun nonetheless. Also protip: for maximum fun, try playing with the bow only.

The Definitive Edition is out now and contains all of the downloadable content, so that version is recommended.
