It's time to decide the greatest PlayStation 3 games of all time. For more than a year, we've left the IGN list of the Top 25 PlayStation 3 games speak for itself, but the games industry is not a static place. New must-haves come out, sequels best originals, and games that were once masterpieces show their age. With that in mind, we set out to update our ever-changing list of PS3 hits.

Below, you'll find the 25 games we think you need to play to see the best of the best on Sony's current console. This year, we've removed downloadable games as there's a standalone Top 25 PlayStation Network games list.So, take a gander and let us know what your top 25 PS3 games are in the comments below.

How did we make the list? Listen to this episode of Podcast Beyond to find out!

9-LittleBigPlanet 2

Released January 18, 2011

The original LittleBigPlanet introduced the PlayStation community to the idea of creating content and sharing it with the world. LittleBigPlanet 2 blew the doors off that idea. No longer were players limited to only being able to create levels. Now, you could create games, races, cutscenes, and movies. On top of that, LittleBigPlanet 2 kept the Sackboy platforming and collecting everyone knew and loved. It even brought over the million levels created in the original game. That number has only been added to since launch, and new DLC always keeps this title fresh.

8-Batman: Arkham Asylum


Comic book video games don't have a great track record, so when Batman: Arkham Asylum got announced, nerds like us held our breath and hoped for the best. Luckily, the folks at developer Rocksteady turned out to be some huge Dark Knight fans and delivered the best comic book game in years. From its excellent voice acting, stunning graphics and awesome Bat-gadgets, Batman: Arkham Asylum was a game that every comic book fan could pop in and get lost in. And most importantly, it was a blast to play. Also, you could say "I am Batman" and mean it.

7-Infamous 2

Released June 7, 2011

Following-up on a game like the original Infamous isn't necessarily easy, but developer Sucker Punch was up to the challenge. The first game showed us Cole MacGrath, a bike messenger-turned-superhero who was endowed with extraordinary electrical powers. Infamous 2 changes pace by introducing a new city and new powers, but the sandbox mechanics remained the same, as did the action-heavy combat that makes Infamous 2 so fun. The city the game takes place in, the New Orleans-inspired New Marais, is one of the coolest locales any video game has ever been set in and is a true testament to the power of the PlayStation 3

6-Red Dead Redemption

Released May 18, 2010

Between games like Grand Theft Auto IV and Manhunt, Rockstar Games started to put itself in a sort of hole. By releasing the epically-good Red Dead Redemption, however, Rockstar managed to show the world that it's capable of far more than just blood, guts, gore and sex. Don't get me wrong – Red Dead Redemption has all of that in spades – but it also has deep characters, a great story, and a totally unique western setting that sits in stark comparison to the modern cities of the GTA franchise. Red Dead Redemption is a truly deep game that's worthy of your attention, especially if you have scores of hours to sink into a single title.

5-Heavy Rain

Released February 23, 2010

Developer Quantic Dream is known for pushing boundaries in games, and that's exactly what Heavy Rain did. Packing a crazy motion/quicktime control scheme, Heavy Rain had you switching between four characters who were all tied up in the kidnappings and murders perpetrated by the Origami Killer. Packing 22 ending movies, your choices mattered and directly influenced what happened in the story. Let the kidnapped kid die, let your characters die, never solve the mystery -- all of these outcomes were possible and made for some excellent replay value. Quantic Dream called Heavy Rain "interactive drama," and we have to agree

4-Portal 2

Released April 19, 2011

Some might complain that it's too early for Portal 2 to make our list -- it's only been out a few months as of this list's creation -- but they can shut up. Portal 2 is awesome. Once again, players are a test subject in the halls of Aperture Science and need to use a portal gun to solve crazy puzzles. And as awesome as the portal puzzles are -- you shoot once to make an entrance and once to make a connected exit -- it was the story of this game that really turned heads. Clever writing, interesting twists, comedy, and robot characters you couldn't help but love and loathe. Toss in multiplayer that could connect with PC players, and you have one hell of a game. That's why Portal 2 smokes so many on our list.

3-Fallout 3

Released October 28, 2008

Do you like the idea of spending hundreds of hours on a single game? Do you like RPGs and shooters? Then you'll be absolutely thrilled with Fallout 3 from Bethesda, a game that mixes all of those elements together into one of the most stunning gaming experiences in recent memory. Fallout 3 tells the story of The Wastelander, a nameless hero (or villain) who is unleashed from his nuclear fallout shelter into an uncertain, alien world. Fallout 3 is all about exploration and choice, which is why the game takes so long to complete, and why it also has inherent replay value that brings the term "bang for your buck" to nearly unparalleled heights.

2-Mass Effect 2

Released January 18, 2011

When you think of space adventures, you probably think of Star Wars. And rightfully so. But BioWare's Mass Effect saga is an epic space adventure in its own right, one that tells a stunningly realistic story set in a futuristic, science fiction-heavy galaxy. Mass Effect 2 continues the story of Commander Shepard, a human who wields incredible influence in a galaxy full of hostile aliens. So much influence, in fact, that a private corporation revives Shepard after he (or she) dies and sets him (or her) off on a choice-laden adventure. Everything about Mass Effect 2 reeks of the highest quality, from its aesthetics to its gameplay. Jetting around the stars has never even remotely been as fun or satisfying.
