1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Metal Gear Solid 4 is a special game, not just for the PS3 but for the industry in general. It arrived in 2008 to total and widespread critical acclaim, and pushed all the boundaries of a genre that already counted itself among the best ever created on any gaming platform.
Set 5 years after Metal Gear Solid 2, Snake returns as a rapidly-ageing old man/clone and faces a fight to stop arch-enemy Liquid from world domination - a fight he must win before his own time runs out.
