God of War 3 takes Kratos to a battlefield like no other. Hard levels and bosses, awesome fight scenes, stunning graphics, and an exhilarating plot made this game worthy of a spot in this list of Top 10 Best PS3 games.

Only Kratos is brave enough to stand up against the mighty gods and it’s all up to you to guide him towards victory. Though this game is a bit too easy for me and I suppose for hardcore PS3 gamers as well, its entertainment value is no less than what I expected.

      This is a good list, but certainly not the best. Not listing Twisted Metal on here will hinder you from getting a thumbs up but I will label it interesting. Stop trying to sell so much and actually write!

      Nice hub. I think Final Fantasy XIII is the best, though.
