Best PS3 multiplayer games?

35 Replies 89,266 Views Created 28-03-2012

Hey guys,

 

One of my mates is picking up a PS3 next week and I don't really use mine very often except for Fifa... Looking to start playing it more - what co-op and multiplayer games would you recommend? All genres really. Excluding BF3, COD...

 

So far we're gonna get...

 

Fifa 12

Wipeout HD (was thinking of GT5 aswell/instead)

Resistance 3 (for co-op, is online good? How about KZ3?)

 

What do you think? Any suggestions would be welcome, cheers!

Cheers, thanks for the advice.

 

Looking at more towards PS exclusives and not the AAA titles, as we have a 360 and PC.

I imagine people are going to scream and shout "Oh nooo" at me for this choice, but...
Homefront.

A fun multiplayer fix. Not as serious as CoD, or its kin, but not at all shabby.

resistance 3 online is a bit crap, it has online co-op but just for the single player i think. The single player was pretty good too. Love KZ3 multiplayer, but dont play it no more, has a free mp trial on PSN so worth checking it out. Couple PSN co-op games i would recomend are Dead nation, lara croft and the guardian of light, pay day the heist. And if you a racing fan you could get F1 2011, got a co-op season you can play. Never played co-op no one to play with. :(

i think resistance 3 is one of the best coop experiences but would agree multiplayer is terrible, im pleased your avoiding mw3 and bf3 two of the most overrated games.Borderlands i thought was ok but ive a nephew and a mate that absolutely loved it but its down to individual taste, i really enjoyed motorstorm apocalypse but couldn't really recommend that due to its terrible online issues but when it does work its great fun.

Portal 2

Borderlands (Borderlands 2 soon)

Resistance 3 (for co-op)

Assassins's Creed Revelations (my favourite multiplayer)

Uncharted 3 (i love it for the single player but the co-op is a blast with friends)

Ratchet & Clank All 4 One has co-op, im getting it after ive finished the R&C Trilogy

 

Also if you dont mind buying a game from the PS store then i recommend Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (i think its called that) awesome co-op game

3 to 6 year olds playing a driving sim?

I wouldn't let my 3-6 year old play anything online with other people, maybe a bit of something aimed at them whilst supervised.

Though this is someone that thinks 18 rated games are suitable for 14 year olds.

3-6 years old playing GT5? They would get rapidly bored of the game in no time.

 

Forza & GT5 are not my type (because they're boring), I like something which I can actually enjoy, so for me, I'll always go with Race Driver GRID + NFS titles (NFS:U, NFS:U2, NFS:MW, etc).

 

Well, anyway, give a try at Sonic Episode II both players can co-op through the levels online.

 

P.S.: Kids around 8-10 years old play Call of Duty so this list of yours is very inaccurate. lol
