New to the PS3, what are some great hidden gems?

I've owned a xbox 360, just had my PS3 since late October..

i own Binary Domain and already am planning to pick up Vanquish. What else is good? I saw somewhere that Shadows of the Damned is underrated, what else? I enjoy pretty much anything except puzzle, racing, shumps, and platformers. I tend to lean towards Action, FPS/TPS, RPG/JRPG/SRPG, Horror, Adventure, and sports.

Infamous. Not so hidden, though.

The only Shmup i know is Gundemonium Recollection, Which is also on Steam

If you want SRPGs get Disgaea 3 or 4

JRPGs that i can think of:

Tales of Graces f

Tales of Vesperia (Import only)

Star Ocean 4(Hear the only good thing about this game is the Gameplay)

Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2(The audience for the HDN games is small though)

Record of Agarest War 2 (RoAW 1 and Zero are SRPGs, I only played 2)

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES (PS2 Classic)

Ni No Kuni (Try the demo first, I don't like this game but most people seem to do)

Not a hidden gem but you really need to play the Uncharted series. Even the first game still holds up really well.

Dragon's Dogma if you haven't tried it yet.

Pixeljunk Monsters if you like tower defense.

Does PJM have a storyline? How long is the game? DD is definitely on my "eventually buy" list...

Which is the best? ...Or do I need to play them in order?

RPG:
- Tales of the Graces F
- Star Ocean
- White Knight Chronicles
- Valkyria Chronicles (this one is strategy, but very underrated, it's a gem !!)

If someone post "I don't care", they actually care VERY much.
If they DON'T care, they WON'T bother posting.

I spent about...150 hours on Pixeljunk Monsters. There is no story. It's just a really fun and addictive tower defense game.
