Recommended Japanese' PS3 Games.

Post by ninjawyatt » April 6th, 2016, 2:15 pm

I've had my PS3 about 7 years, but never taken advantage of the multi-region function. However, that all changed yesterday when Initial D Extreme arrived from Tokyo! That's really given me the buzz to play a few more Japanese' games before I hang up my PS3 pad for good. I've got PS4 games mounting up, but all I'm playing is my PS3 at the moment. So many great games on that platform.

The question: Can you throw me some Japanese' only release PS3 titles that I could track down on ebay?
The positive: I play anything. Shooters, RPGs, racing, fighting, sports, puzzle, blah blah. If a game is well made and playable, well, then the statement stands for itself.
The catch: I speak zero Japanese, and haven't got the time to invest in hours of Google searches and language translations. The suggested games will have to be enjoyable to play without understanding the text, and too many menus and options will obviously baffle me :problem:

Thanks in advance.
