Got £113 to spend (help)

24 Replies 379 Views Created 23-07-2012
Hear me out before you judge me/think im bragging.

Recently I traded in my ps vita to update my ps3 and I have £113 pounds store credit left. This is where it gets abit complex.

Well I have had this theory for a while that the game shop I go to is struggling
And it seems to be getting worse. Getting rid of staff refusing to let people trade things in ( I guess I got lucky) not taking pre-orders and the shelves seem generally bare.

If they go down the pot I will lose my store credit so I'm looking to spend it
That's where you guys come in I need some reccomendations.

I like all game types really except Japanese RPGs / RPGs in general ( I proberbly haven't give them a big enough chance to impress me)
I'm looking for games that will keep me playing for a while
I love immature games free roam games and action games generally.


Thanks guys

it would help if you told us what games you have, so we know not to recommend games you already have. And if you dont have ps+, would say buy some psn cards and subscribe to it. IMO its awesome value.

To answer your question...

 

I'd buy the inFamous series, ( 1 + 2 ) . They are a free roaming action game, very good plot and have about 30hrs gameplay each if y'do both karmas, which is recommended as it changes the story quite majorly.

 

I'd also buy Skyrim, it's a good free-roam rpg game. (non japanese).

 

Heavy Rain is a good , deep, movie-type game, sounds a bit boring but the story is top notch and the gameplay is unique(ish).

 

Uncharted is meant to be good, personally I have the first one but not played it yet but everyone else raves about it :D.

 

Battlefield 3 is a brilliant online FPS if your into that.

If an immature free roam is what your looking for then Saints Row 3 will be right up your street.

 

There is hours of immature, hilarious, free roaming fun to be had in that game.

I would most definatly go for L.A.Noire which is a good long game,free roaming (ish) but i feel has an awesome story and great gameplay.

 I agree with Heavy Rain as that is pretty awesome aswell.

Gran Turismo 5 which is the only racing game you will ever need as its amazing.

MW3 which is a good FPS and good online multiplayer.

 These are just a few but they should keep you going for a while.:Thumbs:

These are all must own games in my opinion

 

Assassin's Creed 2

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood

Enslaved

Uncharted 2 

Uncharted 3

Heavy Rain

Borderlands (preferably Game of the Year edition considering its so cheap now)

Ratchet & Clank Trilogy

Ratchet & Clank Tools Of Destruction

Ratchet & Clank A Crack in Time (you dont need Quest for Booty because A Crack in Time tells you what happened in it at the begining anyway)

Bioshock 2 (i enjoyed this more than the first)

Mass Effect 2

Dead Space 2 (enjoyed it more than the first)

You enjoyed bioshock 2 more than the first? i really dont like the second found it quite boring. the dlc for it was amazing though. 

 

also i recommend darksiders (available on plus) great, great game

the uncharteds all are brilliant

resistance the first hasnt aged well but they are still a blast

gt5, gta4, fallout theres loads you can get for cheap these days that will last you a long time
