I'm interested in just the exclusives, really. I already own a 360, which I prefer for my multiplatform games. So far most of what I'm interested in are just remakes and HD ports from PS2 since I never oned one and missed a bunch of games for it.

Here's what I've already got:
Jak & Daxter HD Collection
Starhawk
PS All-Stars
MAG
Infamous (from the PSN outage)
WipEout (from the PSN outage)
Uncharted 3 (won a copy of this for free)

Current list of games I plan to buy in the coming months:
Ico/SotC HD
Journey collector's edition
Ratchet and Clank trilogy
God of War Saga
(Sly HD trilogy is something I'm unsure of, but might get)
Uncharted 1 & 2

Let me know if there are any major titles you really enjoyed or would recommend to a PS3 newcomer.

Looks like I'll need to restate this bit:

Demon's Souls is one I forgot about though. And I've already played Heavy Rain on a friend's console if anybody was going to say that.

I've seen the trilogy boxes of these but I'm a bit hesitant. I don't mind shooters, but I don't tend to play that much of them unless there's something really interesting or different about them (e.g. Borderlands, Spec-Ops: The Line.) Are these games legitimately worthwhile games to play on their own or is most of their popularity due to having their origins in a time when PS2/PS3 were pretty devoid of good shooters?

From what I read about the Resistance series the first game was said to be spectacular, it was praised to be a stand alone game (nothing like COD). Resistance 2 was more or less a COD clone from what I hear, I heard the story was really good though. Resistance 3 I watched a walkthrough for the game was beautiful graphics wise and had a lot of unique weapons you will not see in any other shooter.

Killzone 2 and 3 gameplay is amazing! The moment you put your disc in your PS3 you will be in awe of how great the game looks. The walking actually feels like walking. You know how other FPS games you feel like your gliding? Well this game does not feel like that and when you shoot theres weight behind every gun. Story wise its kinda meh, I'm not sure how active the online is right now.
