The best PS3 Games to Play with your Girlfriend

Updated on April 22, 2013

Playstation 3 games to play with your girlfriend

Gaming is the most fun when you do it with other people, even the crappiest game can become really really fun when it's done together or against each other. The gaming experience becomes social, fun and exciting. So why not game together as a couple? It's a perfect way of spending quality time together. But finding the best game to play that suits both of you can be hard, that's why I made this page so I can give you some ideas for some great games to play with your girlfriend.

All these games on this list can of course also be played with your friend, husband, mother, acquaintance or any other person you would like to game with. The games on this list isn't "girl-games", because there's no such thing.

The games I'm going to show isn't always great for new and inexperienced gamers, but I'm going to assume that not all girlfriends are completely terrible at playing games.So I'm going to mix the games I suggest with some games with more basic controls and some that are a bit tricky to get used to.

Little Big Planet

For me Little Big Planet to play with my girlfriend, it's a simple platform game set in a creative and beautiful world.

The controls are very basic and super easy to learn so anyone can play this. They have a great multiplayer option so you can play up to four players through the whole game. There's also possible to customize your character in the game with different clothes, stickers, hats, gadgets and a lot of other things.

The game is a few years now so the price is really low for this game. Money will spent I tell you! You get some many hours of fun from this game.

Buy Little Big Planet on Amazon.com

Little Big Planet 2

Let's not forget the second game in the Little Big Planet series that's a even better game! The 2nd game is more polished and have more content and more mini games that you can play with or against players in. Also this game is a lot of fun! So many hours of gaming do this game offer. Highly recommended.

The first game also have great tool to great your own maps, but in Little big planet 2 they really take it to the next level! You can create amazing levels that you can play and share with your friends. Make your own world and then play there! So much fun!

Katamari Forever

This next game is one of the weirdest games I have played on the ps3. Katamari Forever is a video game in the Katamari series. The game play is very simple and consists basically of that you have a ball that you roll around and when you roll your ball on stuff the stuff sticks to your ball and that makes you bigger and bigger, it's very simple but a lot of brainless fun thanks to it's amazing graphics and design. Check the trailer below to see the game in action.

The multiplayer option isn't the greatest. It have a 2 player option but it's fun for maybe a few hours tops. The game is best played as a single player which is a shame because the game would have been so much more fun if the 2 player option was better put together. Even thou it's flaws it's a game worth buying!

Uncharted 3

Uncharted 3 is a great action adventure game. Think a modern day Indiana Jones treasure hunter that knows how to climb like a monkey, now that's Uncharted. The single player of this game is the most fun really, it have a great and trilling story and the game play varies from shooting bad guys to solving puzzles.

The game have both a multiplayer mode that you play online and a 2 player mode (split screen) The 2 player games are great fun and consists of simple survival tasks to capture the flag sort of game play, it's fast pace and kinda hard witch make it even more exciting.

This game takes some time to get used to the controls, it doesn't have as simple controls as Little Big Planet for example, but it's not rocket science so after a few times playing the game it should be no problem to master the controls of the game.

I included an uncharted 3 trailer for the single player mode and the multiplayer mode down below.

Resident Evil 5

Resident Evil 5 is a horror survival game for the PS3 and you play the game with a 3rd person view. The overall feel of this game is a bit spooky so I wouldn't suggest this game for people who don't like to be scared once in a while, that being said the game isn't that scary for being a horror game, it's much more a survival zombie shooter game really, which is fine be me because I don't really like to be scared!

What makes this a great game to play with your girlfriend or any other person for that matter is that you can play the whole game in two player co-op mode, the entire game is about teamwork and working together to fight off zombies and monster and also completing mini-puzzles and tasks. I wouldn't recommend playing this alone because then you are setup with a computer controlled teammate instead for the whole game and that just sucks the fun out of everything.

The story of the game isn't the best to be honest and I can't say that I get drawn into the story, but the combat and the tricky situations that you encounter makes the game so exciting and you really get your heart pumping when you're in a tight spot.

The controls for the game takes awhile before you get used to, in the beginning the controls feels very stiff and hard to handle, one of the reasons is that you have to stand still in order to shoot with your gun or rifle, this takes some practice before you can master, so the start of the game was a bit frustrating for me and my girlfriend.

So the conclution for this game: Not the best story and design but amazing co-op gameplay that makes up for every flaws that the game has. Very recommend game!
