    God of War Series because there great deals all over for them and if played in the right order the story is awesome. Fallout 3 & Fallout New Vegas if you can get the GOTY version. Sadly I can't download DLC due to having the Korean version of both games.

    You can't go wrong with either the Resistance or God Of War series, but you're missing a BIIIIIIG one off your list : the Borderlands series. Do yourself the favor - you'll be VERY glad you did!

    Also, I noticed you have interest in Fallout 3. I'm getting ready to sell my copy of the Game Of The Year Edition along with the 752-page strategy guide (GOTY edition as well). Shoot me a private message if yer interested...

    You say a couple games so I'll say 2 I think you should get from the list.

    Fallout 3 - one of my favourite games in my collection.
    Assassin's Creed II - Also one of my favourite games in my collection however it might be best to get the first one so you get background on the story even though ACII is the best in the series. I can't comment on ACIII yet as I am getting it for Xmas.

    I rated both them games 10/10 in my checklist which I do rarely.

    From the subject header I was thinking "a life"... but call of duty 10 would suit your logic... if not, maybe a kangaroo.

    I say either both of the Assassin's Creed games or both of the Fallout games. It seems from your 'what I have list' you dig enough FPSs. So if u wanna play a FPS with an RPG feel get the Fallouts. If you have never played an Assassin's Creed game, get AC2. It's more than affordable by now and an amazing game IMO. Both are two of my favorite franchises.

    Based on your "currently own" list, you seem to most enjoy first person shooters, sports, racing, and a bit of adventure and music.

    I encourage you to expand your gaming genre resume and explore the amazing RPG world of Fallout. It is a first person shooter or third person shooter (you can choose your camera angle and type on the fly) Fallout 3 is generally regarded as slightly better than Fallout New Vegas but both are great, and you can find editions with all the DLC for a good price these days. Just beware that the game tends to freeze often because its just so big, so SAVE OFTEN and be patient. Beware that these games aren't all action, so they're not for everyone. Some people find the pace too slow. If you have the patience to endure parts of less action, you will see that the reward of exploration and interesting NPC dialogue more than makes up for the times of little action.

    Battlefield 3 will be bumpin for a long time. You'll find plenty of online activity, and it seems to be a pretty good game. I think its the first console title to have anti-aliasing, which is pretty neat. Plus it best fits your evident interest in military FPS' with popular multiplayer.

    God of War is an astounding audio/visual experience. If you have a surround sound system GOW3 is definitely a title you should have for ear-candy (and eye-candy).

    - Battlefield 3 Premium Edition (you'll get Premium and all the DLC for free. It's cheaper if you get the Premium)
    - Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    - God of War Saga (has all 5)

    ********
    I already have Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    It has good gameplay IMO, and an exceptional story and intro credit, apart from the rather retarded AI.

    I already know about how Fallout, GoW, and BF3 play out - I've read a lot about it and seen gameplay on YouTube. I even played a bit of Fallout 3 years ago, albeit I was an amateur at games at the time, and didn't know much about how the AI in games worked (now I know a lot more).

    I have 7.1 Surround Sound on a projector, but only use it for movies. Used to use it for PS3 gaming back in 07.

    i highly recommend the god of war series. you can get the first 5 games in 1 collection for cheap. it's so worth it. and uncharted 3 is a great play as well. the multiplayer was done really well with this title and adds infinite replay ability

    Since you asked for some I'd say:

    • -Uncharted 3: ( You cannot own a PS3 and not play this, one of the greatest PS3 games ever )
    • -Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit ( A must buy racing game, one of my favorites )
    • -Resistance 3 ( Haven't played any Resistance game before until I got this, one of the best shooters I've ever played, really great game )


    Have fun purchasing games!

    In all honesty man, I don't think you will be too disappointed with any of the games you have in your want list. Although I have never cared for the battlefield games or Treyarch's CODs personally. Still a strong list of games to buy.

    Black Ops 2 has the most replay value due to MP hours
