    I have recently got a PS3 and I haven't really played console games for a very long time! Back when i used to play I really enjoyed games like crash Bandicoot, the Spyro series, Mario and Ratchet and Clank.

    I find games like COD and most shooting games really difficult, has anyone got any recommendations of a nice easy game that i might enjoy that is available on PS3!?

    Surprisingly, Red Dead Redemption. It's great fun, and unlike COD and other first person shooters, as a third-person shooter it's very easy to control, not to mention a good challenge. The graphics are brilliant too. Thanks to RDR, I may actually fail my impending exams

    if you like third person games you should check out the uncharted series, both of them are proberbly around £10 used now and they are great, especially the multiplayer in the second game.
    maybe a driving game, need for speed seems pretty good, although burnout paradise is much better imo.
    heavy rain also, its more of an "interactive drama" so its not difficult and the story depends on your choices, its pretty awesome

    I would say, you give Uncharted 2 a try and also the Assassin's Creed series (AC 2 and Brotherhood). If you like open world games, GTA 4, Red Dead Redemption and Mafia 2. In racing, Split Second is quite a good game and if you are into simulation, GT5.

    MGS4 (best game I've ever played, but it's heavy. Not for casual gamers).
    Killzone 2
    Infamous
    Uncharted 2 (in some people's view, the best game on the system. BUY IT).
    Gran Turismo 5
    Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destuction (it's a few years old now, but it is still BRILLIANT).
    Warhawk
    Little Big Planet

    I've only put down a few exclusives, there's no point suggesting games you can get elsewhere.

    Metal Gear Solid 4.

    Amazing game and it doesn't focus on shooting, the stealth aspect makes it so tense & gets you so involved!

      I concur. I will literally die when MGS: Rising comes out.

      LITERALLY!

      I certainly recommend the Uncharted series. It is the best series I have ever played. I also enjoyed GTA 4, Rainbow Six: Vegas and Just Cause 2. Another wonderful series is Resistance, but I have to be honest, it was frightening. However, the story, gameplay, graphics and other aspects are incredible. Now I am going to buy Red Read Redemption and looking forward to buy Infamous 2 and Killzone 3.

      On the contrary, I suggest you to forget about CoD series – multiplayer would not be effective at all due to slow aiming (I have played a demo). I think that mouse is necessary for this type of games.

      Anyway, it would be Uncharted and Uncharted 2 to start with, from me.

        To be fair, the fact he was a kick-arse cyborg ninja in MGS4 did make him pretty cool. Swords = Gamer jizz fest.
