Default best PS3 games for room mates?

we've got rock band (honestly it's a little repetitive for me). Any great games for playing with friends in-house, ideally a game that two friends can play other people online in? We love Fifa but if you play online it's only one player. suggestions?

NBA 2k9 is easily the best 2 player game on the PS3. Street Fighter is very fun with roomates too.

Resident Evil 5 without a doubt. The co-op is so much fun, although the split-screen can ruin the graphics. Still, amazing game.

This man speaks the truth. Start a co-op season on All-Star and try to be league leaders in certain categories. For example, one of you play PG and the other play C. Then go for most assists/most points, respectively. It will give you more motivation than just running through team after team and it'll encourage teamwork.

Or play head-to-head every night and hang a chart on the wall of wins/losses. First one to 15 losses has to pay the cable bill, or something like that.

Back in the old PS2, Smackdown was the bomb with me and my brothers. Having multitap + cage match = fun. Champions of norrath was also cool with the multiplayer option.

Fastforward to the PS3, Smackdown has become so annoying to play and Champions of Norrath just disappeared.

Smackdown never really felt right to me. It always felt like a more stiff version of the N64 wrestling games.

N64 + Wrestlemania 2000 + Four Controllers =

good tips. really looking for something more quest style where it's not just a fighting game or something that we aren't working towards something co-op style. 2k9 sounds okay in that regard if you can do co-op seasons. resident evil 5 too. any other games like that? keyword: co-op

Go with 2K9. To answer your question yes you 2 or 3 guys can play online together but not team up just head to head. So it will be you guys against either just one ***** and maybe his buddies too.





LittleBigPlanet. Very enjoyable multiplayer coop if your not one of those "I don't play kiddie games" faggots.

Also check out Resistance 2 for coop and Motorstorm for competitive multiplayer online, or off. Many other options as well just do some research.

Rainbow Six Vegas 2. You guys won't be able to play against each other, nor with each other online, but you can team up for the missions and terrorist hunts.

My brother and I like playing co-op Dynasty Warriors 6. It's a hack and slash game where you can build your characters together, conquer levels, and get battleground achievments that can only be accomplished with perfect execution of both players.

The new one out is Dynasty Warriors : Gundam. It's traditional DW hack-and-slash, only with robots... very cool.

You can also probably pick DW6 up cheap, since I think DW6: Empires is coming out soon.


Also, a must buy game coming out in May is UFC: Undisputed. Awesome fighting game with online character building and competition.

Last game I bought was SF4. If you like 2d fighters... this game is a must own.

Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe and Madden 09 is all I can think of. Sorry I'm not much help, but my knowledge on PS3 is limited considering I own an X-Box.

I only play LBP with chicks. I will NOT play it with a college roommate.

A big yes if its a female roommate. Or maybe we'll not play at all

As mentioned already, your best bet is to look towards the fighters or sports games. Developers are continually moving away from local multiplayer content in favor of online play. There is Marvel Ultimate Alliance which is fun, but i'd imagine it requires knowledge of the comics to sustain interest. A regular old beat em up game with button smashing mechanics.
