Talking Finally bought a PS3!

Hey guys!

I am now the proud owner of a PS3!
I decided to trade in the old PS2 and 62 games and multiple accessories after looking at my collection one night and realizing I had beaten everything on all difficulties.

I ended up getting a 120Gb PS3 Slim with Assassin's Creed and Midnight Club: LA.

Already up to memory block 4 in Assassin's Creed. Haven't done much in MC:LA. I didn't really like the feel of it. I will persevere though!

Does anyone know of any good offline multiplayer games? There are plenty of good online ones but I want some that I can play when friends come over.

Hi 42.

What style of games were you looking for? Racing, Fighting, FPS, puzzle, etc.?

Favorite multi-player games (not played online) in our house:
  • Guitar Hero (2 x guitars, 1 x Drum ... and once enough alcohol consumed ... 1 X microphone )
  • Buzz (Trivia game)
  • Mortal Combat vs DC (Arcade style fighter)
  • Eye of Judgment (Magic style card game using the PS3 web cam)

Congrats and welcome to the Console div.

Any of the games Pure Mongrel mentioned above, or just going through my own collection...
Modnation Racers has a split-screen mode, and any/all of the Lego games (Batman, Indy, Star Wars) have two-player drop-in coop.
LittleBigPlanet can play up to four players either on or offline.
Burnout Paradise (is a bit long in the tooth now, but still a division fave) has a DLC party pack, (challenges for up to 8 players) but it's pass-the-controller rather than split screen.
Warhawk (even longer in the tooth, but that means you can get it cheap) has a 4-player split screen capability that you can play local games.

Not too concerned about genre as it depends who I play with. General mainstays for party play from my PS2 were Red Faction, Burnout 3: Takedown, Guitar Hero 3 and Tekken (Tag & 5).
My wife just put Band Hero (with instruments) on layby for me. I wanted Guitar Hero but it was cheaper to do it this way and buy Guitar Hero separately
I did hear the offline multiplayer for Resistance: Fall of Man is OK and has up to 4 players split screen. Also really cheap at the moment being a launch title. What are your thoughts on that game?
I just had a dig around and found that most of my multiplayer faves from the PS2 are available on the PS3 but other than Guitar Hero I can't seem to find good reviews of the offline multiplayer component (if they have one).

I think you have the best list there. Certainly from a personal view, the three best offline MP games there are: Buzz, ModNation Racer and Guitar/Band Hero.

Had many hours of shouting, laughing and general carry-on playing all three.

If you only have one friend dropping by, or a wife/children who enjoy playing, the LEGO games can be a blast. My wife is addicted to them now which means we can actually spend time together doing something I enjoy! LEGO or Yoga... hmm, let me think about that for a moment.

I totally agree with the Buzz recommendation too. 8 players local can sure be a hoot! (Alcohol optional but recommended )
