List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for PlayStation 3 at some point.

If you owned a PS3 at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few action games in your collection. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best PS3 action games of all time. The PS3 was the height of gaming technology in its day, and since its release has come out with some of the most well made and designed action games ever.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling action games that were released for PS3. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. This poll features items like BioShock and Grand Theft Auto IV.
