Well, there's Metal Gear Solid 4.
And Final Fantasy XIII
 :)

Not sure if you count fighting as a sport, but there is also Soul Caliber 4.

He says he doesn't want shooter/racing/sports and you recommend a 360? That's a tad backwards don't ya think? I mean, almost all the games that are worth anything on the 360 are shooters.

Anyway, yeah, MGS4 is good.

And for future games, the announced sequel to Shadow of the Colossus and Street Fighter 4 look promising. And if you don't already have a PS2 there's the backwards compatibility to catch  up on some great games from last generation.

I heard Sony mucked up the backwards compatibility, any knowledge on that or did I just zone out again?

If it's fine that'd be my primary reason to get one, imo the PS2 had by far the best lineup out of the past generation.

Why are we recommending MGS4 if he doesn't want a shooter, that said, uncharted's great, warhawk is the best online game on the ps3 imo, and you get a headset with it, so I would consider buying or downloading that, rachet and clank's very Pixar and sweet, you could download some games like pixel junk monsters or flow from the store oh and if you like it GTA 4 obviously.

Lemme think... there is always things like Super Stardust and Everyday Shooter, and the upcoming God of War III. Konami does not seem to have hinted at a Gradius V, but there is always Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. And you can beat The King of Fighters XII and Tekken 6 are getting ported sometime soon after they come out. Can't really think of anything else on the PS3.

Alternatively you can get a 360 and various shmups (Otomedius G!, import only), fighting games (WarTech, which is a cross of shmup and fighting game), and action games (Ninja Gaiden II).

Or get PS2 games instead.

When FFXIII comes out, do yourself a favor and pick it up. Also, I've heard from my brother that Assassin's Creed is an excellent choice.

yeah Creed is fun...
jumping off roofs and nailing people in the back.
1 annoying thing though.
there are these big leaps that are supposed to be cushioned, i found on that wasn't and snapped my neck

THANK YOU FOR SAYING THIS.

God, if anyone who's been here knows, "shooter" is not limited to FPS games. >.<

God. Enough about MGS4. I was trying to say that it isn't the typical shooter which is unwanted in Serious MP's case:
Quote from: "Serious MP"
And i'd like to know which game That [isn't] a shooter/sports/racing game You would recommend me.
where there is more action than strategy. And no one DARE start to say that I said those shooters have no strategy; I said there is more action involved than strategy.
[hr:8my60xb6][/hr:8my60xb6]
MGS4 is a different type of game that requires a great deal of strategy. Since we've already recommended MGS4 for Serious MP, lets talk about some other (probably non-combat) PS3 games now.

I'd recommend Virtua Fighter 5. I played it and I quite enjoyed it.
Title: Re: So for christmas I'm going to get a PS3
Post by: lgb on July 24, 2008, 09:45:47 AM
No, shooter is limited to first and third person. Walkarounds (not the MGS kind) and forced-scrollers aren't "shooters" anymore, they're called "shmups". (Sorry Grave) Of course this is debatable, but whatever. I personally think it's all stupid, but then again I don't go around saying "Oh shooter... you mean like Halo!".

How about we get off of the subject of MGS, eh?
Title: Re: So for christmas I'm going to get a PS3
Post by: Mysterypea on July 24, 2008, 09:57:32 AM
By the way, If you're recommending me a fighting game. Please don't suggest me to buy a fighting game where you have to press up down left left up b left a down b b b a left down for a simple combo.
Title: Re: So for christmas I'm going to get a PS3
Post by: lgb on July 24, 2008, 12:16:46 PM
I don't know what fighting games you play, but none of the ones I listed fit that bill. KOF plays simply A, A, B, A, B or somesuch. Tekken plays like circle, circle, X, X, X or somesuch.

Wait, that's one of Hwoarang's comboes.

"What?"... greatest post ever.

Anyway, Rez is a neato rail-shmup thinger made by Sega's United Artists division. The game is based on music, and every action is timed to music as well.

Next time, use Wikipedia or something! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rez)

shmup != shooter nowadays.

A shooter is like Halo. A shmup is like Galaga. You can blame casual gamers loosely throwing the term around.

I think it's all the same, if your shooting someone, then it's a shooter.

You're thinking wrong

A gun shooting game is an FPS.

Flying stuff like magical lolis that shoots magical bullets is a shooter / shmup game.
