32 games entered, but only four remain. The PSU community has narrowed the field in our Ultimate PS3 Showdown down to the very best four titles on PlayStation 3, and with your official contest entries now in effect, the stakes have never been higher. The two games that move on will compete for the crown, the title of Best PS3 Game Ever - choose wisely.


The Contenders:

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.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

If Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a great game, then Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was nothing short of spectacular. Nathan Drake's second adventure - equal parts shooting, climbing, and puzzle-solving - topped the first in every way. Bigger action. Thrilling setpieces. A tighter story. Refined controls and shooting took things to the next level and cemented our wise-cracking hero as one of gaming's biggest stars. Who doesn't remember leaping between speeding trucks on an icy mountain road, or scaling the rooftops of Nepal while squaring off against an attack helicopter? These moments, and many, many more, are memorable evidence of Uncharted 2's excellence.
