Game suggestions for the Playstation 3

Video Games

Hey, I'm trying to figure out a new game or two to add to my ps3 collection. Partly because, well it would be grand to have a new one.. but I'd like to find something my dad would like to play.

He played every delta force game for the pc I got for him. A couple military sniper games. Splinter Cell and the racing games i got him for xbox.

I was thinking COD World at War - because he is into wwii and such. I was thinking a flight simulator but I'm going to wait for Combat Wings and hope it's a good one.

The thing about WaW is the CODs i've played in the past seem pretty fast paced. I don't know what he would like in pacing but I don't want him to be overwhelmed since he would be playing a game he hadn't, with a completely foreign controller.

Anyway, suggestions would be nice. Here is a list (from memory) of my current games.

Assassins Creed
Assassins Creed II
Assassins Creed Brotherhood
Assassins Creed Revelations
GTAIV (+ The Lost and The Damned + Ballad of Gay Tony)
Batman Arkham Asylum
Red Dead Redemption
UFC Undisputed 2010
Little Big Planet
Dynasty Warriors 7
Uncharted 2
Portal 2

I feel like I'm forgetting some, but oh well.. haha.

I should be getting Uncharted 3 soon, and possibly COD MW3 (unless someone tells me WaW is way better and I should just get that instead.)

Thanks for the suggestions.

Batman: Arkham City - Not quite as good as Asylum, but still very good.

Bayonetta - If you like hack'n'slash, this is one of the best.

Darksiders - Think God of War meets Zelda.

Dead Space 1/2 - Good action horror game, like RE4, only actually scary on occasion.

God of War I-III - Another good hack'n'slash series.

Heavenly Sword - Like God of War, only you're a chick, and it's a better game.

Ico + Shadow of the Colossus - One of the greatest and most artistic games of all time. Plus another pretty cool game where you get to climb on big monsters.

Mirror's Edge - Parkour + a bunch of jerks trying to shoot you. Fun stuff.

Orange Box - Worth it even if Portal is the only game you ever play out of it. Half-Life 2 is decent as well. Still, I wouldn't have bought this if Portal: Still Alive was available on the PSN. Oh, and I prefer Portal to it's sequel.

Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas.

I had Fallout 3 for xbox and still for pc. I haven't played New Vegas yet though. I had a couple of friends who couldn't contain themselves over how much they liked Fallout, and they didn't care for New Vegas at all. Ofcourse, that doesn't mean much, I tried to show them Oblivion and they didn't like it.

Kthulhu, I have Portal on computer courtesy of Steam. I'm hoping 2 is just as fun. (It's in the mail) I think I'll give Dead Space a try.

I'm going to try COD WaW and Mortal Kombat see how they play.

Mirrors Edge sounds really good.I like the idea of playing in parkour type enviroment.. but it sounds akin to infamous and assassins creed.
