Dealing with a range of adult themes, the game revolves around a sophisticated plot and strong narrative threads that explore a complex moral proposition.

The Director's Cut includes the original game, Heavy Rain Chronicles: Episode 1 - The Taxidermist DLC, a series of 8 "Making of" bonus videos, the game's soundtrack, three dynamic themes and more.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - War comes home in Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the explosive third chapter of the blockbuster first-person action series set in near-future combat scenarios.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made.
In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

The game is action-packed from start to finish, including loads of new lessons, spells, and bonus content for hours of family friendly gaming.
Happy Feet Two: The Videogame - Happy Feet Two is a 3D musical adventure game for the entire family inspired by the whimsical Antarctic world of the animated film. In the game, new dangers are threatening the penguin nation, and it's going to take everyone working - and dancing - together to save them from extinction.

CHRONO CROSS - The sequel to CHRONO TRIGGER, is one of the most ambitious role-playing games ever made. There are over 40 playable characters, each with their back-story, special moves, abilities, and weapons.
The story spans two discs and follows the story of Serge, a young man who is able to cross dimensions. Suddenly he is pulled between worlds, trying to figure out his own past at the same time. The graphics are bright and beautiful, utilizing the PlayStation's capabilities to the fullest.
The polygonal character models are huge and detailed, and the pre-rendered backgrounds are immaculately detailed. The music is composed and arranged by Yasunori Mitsuda, and features very realistic-sounding synthesizers.
Full Spectrum Warrior - Full Spectrum Warrior is based on a real-time squad-based strategy game commissioned by the U.S. Army to train light Infantry troops in urban combat situations.
Soldiers are placed in a tense, hostile, and claustrophobic environment where they must complete a variety of military objectives. Players act as the Squad Leader, providing direction to Alpha and Bravo fire teams.
The successful Squad Leader effectively uses cover in the environment and moves his fire teams in a coordinated fashion so they can protect themselves from possible attacks that could come from any direction. Full Spectrum Warrior puts you in the dirt with your men, where danger lurks around every corner.
Stuntman Ignition - Developed by Paradigm Studios and published by THQ, Stuntman Ignition puts you in the driver's seat as you create spectacular Hollywood moments such as monstrous jumps, fantastic explosions and large-scale crashes.
In this second entry entry into the popular series, you'll live the life of a famous Hollywood stuntman, building your career from the ground up and taking death defying stunts to a whole new level.

I would recommend "Fight night champion" to any boxing fan out there, it's a very fun game . Also Monopoly streets is okay but nothing beats playing the real thing, since you can't cheat playing the PS3 game .
The first time I've played an Elder scrolls game (Oblivion) I couldn't put my control down, it was such a great RPG game and it still is. But Skyrim is going the best RPG game ever (hopefully ).
Too bad nothing there will be playable.
Who knows, maybe Duplex already have the fixes for the games and will release them soon.
