There are alot of things im not a huge fan of with the PS3.

The Controller
The Mandatory Install
The Updates for some of the games...

just what i can think of off the top of my head. However, i just bought my first PS3 2 days ago and i'm actually liking it quite a bit.

I LOVE the auto updates that PS plus has available.
and loving Heavy Rain so far
also love free online MP

but thats not what this is about.
Im looking for suggestions for games that someone like me (Someone who never paid attention to PS3 games) wouldnt know about that are good.

I know about the Uncharted games and im looking forward to the Last of Us, but what else? Suggestions?

I guess I'm weird too. I hate mandatory installs. I'm not a big fan of the controller the R2&L2 are way to sensitive if I just accidentally glaze the buttons the damn thing thinks I'm pushing the button. It can get really frustrating playing DCUO.I've been thinking of buying a adapter to use my 360 controller on my PS3.

The controller is the best out of all the consoles imo. Its symmetrical just like my hands.

And yeah the installs are annoying, but its just the way it works..

i agree.

However ill say the XBOX controller fits in my hands perfectly which is why i like it. I do have large hands though.

My biggest issue with the PS3 controller is the location of the left stick. it feels really awkwardly placed, and it feels like i have to reach my finger so far across the controller to run right.

However that all can be beacuse the first Sticks i ever used on a controller were the origional XBOX controllers. I never had a dual shock for the PS1 and i didnt get a PS2 till late in the generation.

It's weird i dont have this problem. Some people hold the ps3 controllwr wrong believe it or not. Your fingers should not reach the middle on the back. They should just be on the handles. And i dunno why people think the stick is awkwardly placed.. it's symmetrical, just likes your hands. :)
