Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 Best Games Guide.

Weekly Update:

Guide almost completely updated to the new system now, with the exception of the racing section (for the reasons mentioned above). There are 6 racing reviews that will be posted (all of which make the top 10 of the guide) and they will start going up in a few days time, so after that the new system will be fully in place.


- Updated sales figures for the 'Best Sellers' list:

FIFA 09 - passes 2 million.

Why no more love for IGN? I personally think a single reviewer is much better to use than an aggregate score.

Because this is VGC, and since we're really starting to put a focus on reviews and we're starting to get a lot of review copies we should use this site's reviews, not IGN's.

The Metacritic score is only used where we have yet to review a game. We only have ~140 reviews in the archive at the moment, but that number is increasing rapidly, so hopefully Metacritic scores will eventually make up only a very small number of those games listed in the guide.



List gets bigger and bigger ^^

I'll finally order Killzone 2, Valkyria Chronicles and *cough* Haze from the UK for £70 (~80€).
Not a bad deal (I'm saving EDIT: over 50€).

Can't wait to play them !!!

What I'm saying is that we could use IGN in Metacritic's place. Keep VGC highest priority.

Of course, that would put Resistance 2 back at #1 for shooters, and that's not good.

Oh right, well I still think it would look a little odd to use another site's reviews as the back-up. In that sense an aggregate score seems more appropriate.



Shouldn't BioShock be above CoD4?

Somebody should really do a review for that game for VGC.

Nope. BioShock got 9.3 from the site, Call of Duty 4 hasn't been reviewed by us yet so the Metacritic score is used instead, and that puts Call of Duty 4 at 9.4.

I plan on reviewing Call of Duty 2 (360) and Call of Duty 3 (PS360) at some point, assuming nobody else on the team is working on a Call of Duty 4 review by that point then I will review it at the same time.



Bookmarked this awesome guide when I get my PS3 :)



I like these kinds of lists. Now I don't have to do a "why should I buy a PS3" thread.
