I love Bioshock 1 and 2, and really loved Half Life 2. Anything on PS3 similar to these?
Ive already played Singularity, awesome game but too linear. Looking for more larger/open worlds.
Bonus points if its exclusive to PS3, but not essential.

I currently own on PS3:

Little Big Planet 2
Uncharted
Heavy Rain
3d Dot Game Heroes


Thanks.

Deus Ex Human Revolution

I had never played the series and was completely obsessed with the game for a couple weeks. It's got some of the best area designs I've seen in a game, great artwork, great music, great characters, and excellent story. Gameplay is spot on too.

Mirror's Edge - not much gun action but the game is great and is very memorable like Halflife 2 and Bioshock.

Dishonored. It has a dystopian setting just like HL2 and stylish art just like Bioshock. Gameplay and the open-ended nature is like Deus Ex. Overall my GotY of 2012. Plus some of the people who made Halflife 2 and Deus Ex worked on it so you'll be right at home.

For the record: Bioshock is extremely overrated. Its a good game with good artstyle, nothing more. The gameplay is bland and monotonous.
What is faith then but persistent hope in the face of relentless doubt.
Now Playing: Anarchy Reigns, Far Cry 3, Torchlight 2, Final Fantasy 9.

Deux Ex Human Revolution
Dishonored

^Agree with the above posts

Also

Portal 2
Dead Space 1,2
Crysis 2
Fallout 3 then Fallout New Vegas

Deux Ex HR is heavily underrated on all boards, imo its up there as one of the best games this gen.

Deus Ex feels very HL2 to me.

that being said i Deus Ex was disappointing because in the end you're choices dont matter

It's not very open world but i enjoyed the resistance series (the third really reminded me of half life for some reason) singularity was fun, deus ex was excellent as was dishonored. I guess i'm not sure what you're specfically looking for? Open world gameplay? First person shooter? Futuristic setting? All of the above?
I'd give farcry 2 and 3 a chance, oblivion and skyrim and

Singularity and Metro 2033

And no, Bioshock isn't overrated. But then again, people think everything is overrated. Just a buzzword people like to throw around every day.

Crysis 2 is kind of similar to Half Life 2, but better.

Dishonored is like Bioshock and really fun.

The Darkness 2 is also similar to both of those.

I don't feel it's overrated but yeah, the shooting mechanic is so mind-numbingly boring and repetitive. "oh, look, more ****ing splicers." *shoots them* *heals* *buys more medkits*

Splicers: Weeeeeee're baaaaaaaack

Rinse and repeat x1000
