Picked up Outland and Limbo off PSN a few days ago and I'm totally thrilled with both (also got Star Wars Dark Forces, apparently a PS1 title, I hate it*).
I grew up on atari and nintendo and definitely delved into genesis and n64 eras as well but haven't been a big fan of the gaming world since.
Outland's gameplay is Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man, and Metroid with 2k11 graphics that are like Tron meets Avatar. The story is mythic legend warrior shit and pretty simple but the game delivers across the board. I've almost gone through the whole thing in just a couple sittings and I don't play video games like that. Truly the first game I've been excited about besides the standards (Mario, Worms, Civilization, etc) in ages. Terrific game, only 10 bucks, if you miss the side scrolling adventures, this is your shit.
*are there any good X-wing, tie-fighter, pod-racer type star wars games for the ps3? how about a star wars strategy game?
