EGM’s TAKE: So what would I pick as my top three favorite PS3 games? Sticking with PS3 exclusives, Demon’s Souls would easily be my first choice. Uncharted 2 I’d have to pick, both for the single-player portion of the game, as well as the utterly enjoyable multiplayer. Finally, I might have to go with Super Stardust HD—that one really surprised me, and I ended up really loving my time with it.

What would be your picks for top three PlayStation 3 games? Let us know in the comments below!
