Battlefield 3 over Bad Company 2 is a weird choice.

Though, with the exception of FF13, I can agree with most of that list. They're all pretty much solid choices from that Gen.

Yakuza 3 isn't listed? I'm rather surprised. I found that one my favorite of the 3 on PS3.

Well deserved though. I missed out on Demon Souls and Dark Souls 2 but looooved Dark Souls 1 and 3 and Bloodborne.

Edit: Also surprised Ni no Kuni didn't make the list either.

great pick, Famitsu readers know what’s up.

edit: Nier at No.6 is another strong pick, but I'm surprised to see Yakuza 4 and 5 on there but not Kenzan.

They have to remaster it for the modern systems. For all the love Souls games get on GAF, Demons' talk is surprisingly quiet. To the point where it feels like many who like the series never played it due to the PS3 not being that popular at the time the game launched.

Famitsu gettin' something right for once! FFXIII at number four, though, lawd, we will never be rid of Lightning. Nobody show this list to Toriyama or Square. Positively, it's a pleasant surprise to see Nier so high up.

Fingers crossed for Nier 2 selling well.

They know what's up! I will personally replace DeS with DS1, but it's still great list nonetheless.

edit: ugh why is FF13 so high? >.<

Umbasa.

I hook my PS3 back up every now and again just to play DeS.

That said, I believe FF13 got a 37/40 and the reception in Japan was really good, so I'm not surprised it's high on the list.

Nier, strikes again.

6 years on still proving how out-of-touch the critics were.
