With the PS3 poised to have a huge holiday (a year late) due to the recently announced two PS3s at $400 and $500, you may want to know if there are actually any good games out for it.
In my opinion, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune is the first game that I actually want to play on my PS3. It is an action-adventure treasure hunting game largely influenced by Indiana Jones and other jungle adventures.
The gameplay attempts to bring some humor and emotion to an "everyday" hero. Rather than some super-soldier who can blast through all of the enemies, the main character will hurt his fist when he punches people and will occasionally trip and fall, for example.
Add a strong puzzle solving element revolving around the notebook in the game, which is very similar to Indiana Jones' father's diary in The Last Crusade, and you've got me hooked.
