[Answered] Best PS3 multiplayer games? (and why)
I bought a PS3 last week. I LOVE this thing. It does way more than I thought it would. I got a PS2 back in 2000 and loved it for several years, then it started collecting dust and I hadn't touched it in forever. The PS3 has revived all that.
I live most of the time in San Jose (CA) due to work. But my wife lives in Reno (NV). I want to get a PS3 for her, and am wondering what are some really good multiplayer games? This was actually my wife's idea, which I thought was pretty cool... though she actually though the Wii would be the better choice (doh).
She probably isn't going to be into racing type games, unless they're fairly easy to learn. She did enjoyed SSX on the PS2. She might enjoy some shooters, and I know she'd enjoy some of the fighting games, since she's been taking Karate for the last few years.
Any suggestions? I've been reading all the various reviews, like on IGN, but most of them don't talk much about multiplayer capabilities.
LittleBigPlanet is a must for multiplayer. Also, as far as shooters go, everyone else suggested some great ones, but I would also recommend trying Battlefield: Bad Company. Single player is fun, and the multiplayer is pretty fun. It's a little different than most traditional "kill everyone but you/your team" multiplayer. It's more of an attack/defend style of game. Worth a rental at least, in my opinion.
If you want a great party game, Buzz! Quiz TV is really cool. Not only do you have the 4 player format, but you also have the online mode where you can actually play as a team of up to 4 people on your PS3 against anyone else's team over the internet.
Another great multiplayer game, if you have the cash, is Rock Band. It's great with 4 people, but it's still just as fun with 2.
