are their any game's that i missed? Thought's?

it's needs to stop pretending to be a xbox and be playstation.



It needs a Final Fantasy game that isn't linear and actually allows you to control all the damn characters in the battles!! Something along the lines of X would be nice

Another mistake is assuming that franchises are exactly the same worth as they were last generation. I would never compare GTA4 to GTA3, VC, SA. 

Or the crazy amount of JRPGs last generation for the playstation. Seven .hack games, two grandia games, four suikoden games, and a bunch of others. (I don't want to list all of the franchises.)

I will also add, one doesn't need to compare itself to the playstation 2. The playstation 3 has done wonderful on its own, a bit too much like the xbox as xxain mentioned but still wonderful.

This, they are just stealing ideas, they need to differentiate themselves from eachother.

I don't want Killzone (no offence to the people that do), I want games similar to what made the PS1 and PS2 so great. I think the PS3 games line-up for 2012 is a step in the right direction though.

As for this list, it's a great idea, but many of those classics will never be seen again and there are other franchises which are new, bigger and better than the franchises which haven't been seen yet on the Playstation 3. But still, there isn't enough, I don't necessarily want every one of those franchises on that list, just something in the same genre with equal quality.

The RPG section is pitiful :(

Xenogears wasnt a PS2, neither was Chrono Cross or Vagrant story ... unless you mean sequels? but that would make any sense either because they never got sequels on PS2

I wanted to say something, but I didn't. Final Fantasy X was considered the most linear before XIII came on the scene. Just that Final Fantasy X did a better job of covering up the linearity with few select dungeons. 



 

This thread really opens my eyes futher to how little PS3 has accomplish in being anywhere near its Godly predecessor

Well in the JRPG department, ya really, no where near it and will never be near it. Other genres are pretty well covered. I miss Game Arts....:(
