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.
