I recently, in the interest of spoiling myself, bought both a PS3 and a Wii (self control issue much, Tori?). I've gotten a few games for each but nothing I'm in love with. On my older systems I was always a big fan of the Silent Hill/Resident Evil type games. Horror RPG type. I'm fairly open to anything though except for things like COD or war-type games. Can anyone suggest games for either? I've already got GTA4, one of the Ratchet & Clank games, and Borderlands for the Playstation, and a Silent Hill game, Epic Mickey, Mario Galaxy (not thrilled) and Just Dance 2 for the Wii.
For the PS3:
Based on your Horror RPG fandom, I recommend the Bioshock franchise
*. The story telling is excellent and damn scary (though as a SH/RE you may be less jumpy than I am). Both the first and second installment of Bioshock have been critical and gameplayer darlings.
I found Mirror's Edge
* a lot of fun — freerunning minus the years of physical training — though it bombed with Asian and American gamers because the story telling isn't the greatest, many people objected to the E-surance look of the cut-scenes, and it's fairly short. On the other hand European gamers loved it, and you can now buy it for under $20.
In the inexpensive/low-tech category, I recommend The Last Guy
*. It's Google Maps meets Zombies & Aliens meets Mazes & Puzzles.
I use my Wii mainly for exercise so I don't think my recommendations would be useful to you.

I can't believe I forgot God of War
