This poll is now closed.
I find it really striking, that with over the 30 games I owned in PS3, that I still don't feel quite satisfied of its era. Maybe it's my age, (though I am not that old, just reiterating the fact that my age back then and now, have probably impacted how much I enjoy the games I play) or maybe it is something else, but I find games back then more entertaining that it is now.

I find games back then, hard but satisfying when you accomplish them (coming from someone who is not decent with games other than fighting and strategy games). Idk, I remember playing Megaman on PS1, and I failed so many times and sometimes it would take me 2 hours to beat just one stage, but beating that stage felt so gratifying that it makes me want to keep moving.

Even playing old PS2 games, the mechanics were simple (though control issues were usually common due to there were no standard button mechanics that everyone accepted), yet games nowadays does not suffice the satisfaction I crave.

Sure there were many games that I enjoyed in PS3, but I always feel that something is missing. Have you ever had that feeling that even though you enjoyed all the games you played, you're looking for this particular game that would quench your thirst of satisfaction. A game so good that it doesn't need a sequel.

Idk, in the older gen, there is always that one game that you will never ever forget, but I feel in the PS3 era, though there are a lot of great games (I'm not saying that there aren't), it's just I feel that they seem to be easily forgettable. I don't think there are many games in the PS3 that people would call a classic game. A great game, surely I agree, I feel after the next gen comes out, many will forget many games that were great in the PS3.

[This is purely subjected, and I hope you don't attack me for my comment. We can discuss why you feel differently or similarly, but please don't say that I am a troll. I clearly stated and pointed why I feel this and that. Anyway the the curtain nearly falling on the PS3 era, I wish to see what are people's opinion in regard to how much they enjoyed the PS3 generation. Thank you for reading my thread. Hope we will all have fun discussing how much fun you had.]

Nope, early adopter too, exclusives just weren't good for me and multiplayer was just so much better on Xbox 360 and PC.

Hmmm... I forgot to mention multiplayer haha thank you buddy.

I feel that the multiplayer was also bad in PS3, but then again you aren't really paying for any of their server service, so I have no place to complain about the things that are free.

Though I do not own an XBOX360, I feel that playing multiplayer is much better in PC, compare to PS3.

PS3 was easily Sony's best gen followed by the psone

I didn't love ALL the games I played on PS3 - of course - but I still loved the vast majority and felt this was Sony's strongest generation in terms of games offered and game quality. PS3 is now one of my favorite systems to date, up there with the SNES and GameCube. - The Backlogger, where I wade through an ever-expanding backlog of video games

This gen has been amazing to me, like every other gen honestly.

This isn't my favourite gen, but has by no means disappointed me.

Yes, very. Maybe once or twice a game wasn't all I hoped it would be, but for the most part it was.
Go, then.....there are other worlds than these.

In the end, yeah, I'm happy.

I wasn't always, as there were some lame years in PS3 land, but in the end, I'm very satisfied with Sony's work.
