In case you’ve been holding out on buying some of the most successful PlayStation 3 games up until this point, we have some good news for you. Sony has just added five new titles to their value-priced Greatest Hits collection to entice new and old gamers alike who might have missed out on these games the first time around. The price for each is $29.99, a bargain for some and a steal for a few others.

The first game added to the list is God of War III, the final chapter of one of the most impressive and violent franchises in the history of PlayStation exclusives. God of War III released early last year and received a positive review from Game Rant, solidifying the title as a must-play for all fans of the series.

Next is Heavy Rain, the narrative-driven action-adventure that caused a great deal of buzz last year. Opinions have ranged from the title being a poor mockery of a game to a glimpse at the future of game design, but the general consensus is that this unique experiment in storytelling was worth picking up if only to experience something virtually unheard of before 2010 (excluding Indigo Prophecy). It even scored a perfect 5/5 here!

The third title is ModNation Racers, the second of the Play, Create, Share games after LittleBigPlanet. This kart racer allows players to construct tracks on the go, and offers some fantastic gameplay for a title so focused on creation. This is yet another game that was widely praised here, and should be worth a look if you have yet to try it out.

UFC Undisputed 2010 is the fourth game added to the Greatest Hits. This mixed martial arts game was a dramatic improvement over the 2009 edition, and gave fighting game aficionados something to keep their eyes on in the coming years.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves needs no introduction for anyone who owns a PS3. This Naughty Dog action title provided some of the most satisfying platforming, shooting, and set piece manipulation we’ve seen so far in this console generation, at least in our humble opinion. And we aren’t the only ones who think so. This will be the fifth and final game added to the Greatest Hits this time around.

All of these games are worth considering if you have somehow avoided them this long. Are there any games on this list that you have not played yet? If so, why not go out and buy them right now?

All of these Greatest Hits and the 47 before them are available on store shelves now.
