Tomorrow a new generation begins: The PlayStation 4 arrives. Though the PS3 won't be retired immediately, it will be pushed to the side of our shelves in favor of Sony's new console. To bid an affectionate farewell to the outgoing system, some of the Joystiq staff gathered to recall their favorite memories with the PlayStation 3. Some have fond memories of exclusives, complete franchises, or that action game that refuses to be forgotten.
These are just a few of our favorites; of course we can't list them all! (Xav, for instance, wanted to highlight Metal Gear Solid 4, but it's a busy week!) Share your favorites in the comments below while we countdown the start to the next-gen.
