    Ultimate PS3 Games Showdown 2013 Entrants Thread

    Due to popular demand, PSU has agreed to host a successor to last year's Ultimate PS3 Games Showdown to see which game will claim the throne a year after God of War III won the original competition.

    Since being given the green light, what I intend to do is come up with the list of entrants for this year's competition. What's been suggested is to have 32 entrants and to keep the top 16 entrants that got through Round 1 of last year's competition and fill in the remaining spaces with games that you, the community, want to see in this competition: this can be a game that featured last year, a game that didn't make the cut last time, or a brand new game entirely - whatever you want. The only requirements are that it must be a game that is available on PS3: it does not have to be exclusive. Any PS3 game is eligible.

    The parameters for this competition are susceptible to change: for example, if there's enough demand/interest, the total number of entrants may be increased to 64 rather than 32. Likewise, there have been thoughts about whether to include the top 16 from last year, or only use the top 8, leaving 24 available spaces for new entrants.

    So now's the community's chance to nominate which games they would like to see in the Ultimate PS3 Games Showdown 2013. Let us know what your favourite PS3 games are, even if someone else has already mentioned them, as the games with the most demand will feature in this competition. There is no limit to the number of games you can nominate, so list as many of your favourites as possible so we can find out what the best games on PS3 are!

    The list of games returning from last year, and are susceptible to change depending on opinion, are as follows:
    - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
    - God of War III
    - Heavy Rain
    - Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
    - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
    - Grand Theft Auto IV
    - LittleBigPlanet 2
    - inFamous
    - Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
    - Portal 2
    - Resistance 3
    - Battlefield 3
    - Gran Turismo 5
    - Demon's Souls
    - Journey
    - FIFA 12


    Be sure to nominate you favourite game to increase their chance of appearing in this competition. This thread will be open for a few weeks, with no closing date in mind. So get nominating, tell us which games you like, and we can all have a discussion to determine which games should feature in this competition! Which games would you like included, and which games would you like to see changed from last year? Sound off here!

    EDIT: A date is yet to be set for the competition, but it will ideally take place over a few weeks in August. When the competition starts depends on when we have a sufficient list of entrants and community interest.

    BioShock Infinite and The Last of Us sounded like the obvious choices to get this thread started off!

    Thanks for your input guys

    Journey's a returner from last year, so it's likely that it will feature. I was a bit unsure about including PSN titles against full retail games, but you did it last year so it could work?

    As for Ni No Kuni, I don't know much on the game, it sounds really popular though. Same goes for Tales of Graces f.

    Also, why Assassin's Creed III? I'm yet to play it but I've heard it was a bit of a let down. Many people claim Assassin's Creed II is still the best (which is my personal favourite). An Assassin's Creed game is pretty much a must in this competition, but which one do we go with?

    Go with Assassin's Creed II or an Assassin's Creed game in the Ezio trilogy.

    Some people say AC3 was a good game, but it's up to you what you want to go with.

    Well I personally don't mind, an Assassin's Creed game is pretty much a necessity in this competition, but this is a community thing, so I'll use with whichever has the most interest. Assassin's Creed II sounds to be the most popular and got the best reviews, as many people were disappointed with Assassin's Creed III, though as I haven't played the latter I can't judge for myself.

    Though Assassin's Creed III is newer and didn't take place in the last competition. It depends on which one the community wants to make an appearance!

    Any game on the PS3 is eligible. Some games will be returning from last year's competition, which had entries from 2008. What I'm aiming to do is fill in the spaces with popular games that came out in the last year or didn't make the cut last time. So any PS3 game is fine, try not to limit nominations just to the new games and include some that were overlooked before.

    Here's the entrants from last year. Feel free to nominate any you'd like to see return:

    Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider sound like popular choices. I'm also noticing a lot of love for JRPGs. Are there any other PSN titles people would like to see included? Or is Journey going to be the only one among full retail releases!

    Keep the nominations coming guys, still got plenty of room for the best games on PS3!

    I bet a lot of people had forgotten that the Devil May Cry reboot was good.

    It doesn't have to be limited to new releases, remember! I think it's safe to say that a Call of Duty game will be included in this, it's just a matter of which one? The same goes for Dead Space - many people disliked the newest installment! Also, I considered God of War: Ascension, but I'm not sure if it's worthy of replacing God of War III, which got much better reception and won last year's competition!

    I'm personally putting forward Borderlands 2, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West and Mirror's Edge if anyone would like to second them.

    I'd also like to second Dishonored and L.A. Noire.

    Additionally, I'll suggest that Red Dead Redemption and Batman: Arkham City return from last year, as well as the inclusion of a MotorStorm and Killzone game - but which one? What about the Souls games?

    Yeah, I was debating whether to include inFamous or inFamous 2. What do people think about replacing FIFA 12 with FIFA 13, or scrapping it altogether?

    I was also considering Bayonetta, Dante's Inferno and Darksiders.

    Which one do you suggest to include? The most recent?
