  • Posted July 30th, 2012 at 07:41 EDT by PSU Staff

The Ultimate PS3 Showdown is back, and Round 2 has officially begun! We've narrowed our field of the best PS3 games ever from 32 to 16, and the competition is heating up fast. How do you choose between "amazing" and "amazing"? We don't know, and that's why we're turning to you. Cast your vote in this match-up to decide the Best PS3 Game Ever!


The Contenders:

Demon's Souls

This surprise hit from... well, From SoftWare might be the hardest game in our lineup, but that didn't stop gamers from flocking to it in droves. The thrill of challenge (and reward) speaks to all of us, and Demon's Souls serves up both in spades. Thankfully, the tear-jerkingly difficult encounters are complemented by solid RPG mechanics and an atmospheric world that's as compelling as it is frightening. If you've managed to master Demon's Souls, consider yourself a champion. The rest of us will be content considering the game as one of PS3's absolute best.

God of War III

Say what you will about Kratos and his morals, the guy knows how to get sh*t done. Medusan eyes, Chimeran heads, a Cyclops' thunderous club - next to nothing will stand between the God of War and his revenge, and PS3 gamers get to revel in every second of it. God of War is one of the finest franchises to ever grace Sony platforms, and God of War III was the bloodiest, most brutal entry yet in a series recognized for its blood and brutality. Lucky for us, God of War III was a joy to look at and play. Action-packed battles and setpiece moments were refined to a diamond polish, and even upcoming sequel God of War: Ascension will have a hard time topping this violent tour de force.

Which of these two games deserves to move ever closer to the crown? Cast your votes in the official polling thread, and be sure to vote in all our match-ups to decide the Best PS3 Game Ever!
