Agree with Starhawk being on that list, an amazing multiplayer experience
xursz  +   1310d ago
Starhawk <3

I'm actually playing it now, to be honest.

*Launches Spawn-Pod and hits Mech*

SCORE !

starhawk, journey, twisted metal, super stardust. wow alot of exclusives.
StrongMan  +   1310d ago
And the highest rated exclusive, Journey (92). Only Sony can deliver quantity AND quality.
mewhy32  +   1309d ago
With all the talent that is in the industry right now I have to strongly disagree with Sony being the only developer that can deliver quality games. Strongly. You're saying that Epic,Bethesda,Id,Bungie,Capcom ,RockStar,Infinity Ward,EA,and the like can't deliver quality games? WOW. Journey was a great game, that's for sure, and Sony does have awesome exclusive products but they're not the only developers that deliver epic gaming experiences. Not by a long shot. You need to get out more.

Highest rated game this gen is Uncharted 2. So I would say Sony :)

Sony are not developers. They're publishers. Developers are thatgamecompany, Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, Santa Monica Studios, etc... They're all 1st party studios owned by Sony.

Sony really has invested in their 1st party studios. Watching companies like ND growing from Crash to TLOU is just astonishing.

And it's incredible how many new IP's Sony has delivered this gen (Uncharted, Heavy Rain, Motostorm, LBP, Resistance, Warhawk/Starhawk, etc...). And don't forget the bunch of exclusives coming soon!

Diablo III and Tales of Graces f for me
ThanatosDMC  +   1309d ago
Diablo 3? Seriously?
shodan74  +   1310d ago
Walking Dead?
Sanquine90  +   1310d ago
Agree .

OT: 3 Vita games on top! Mutant blobs attack from space , Super stardust delta ( Fucking awesome...) I only miss gravity rush!
rajman  +   1310d ago
I'd have Asura's Wrath on that list, the game was good but it became even better with the DLC episodes, shame that we had to pay for them though, and if they release an Asura's Wrath GOTY edition with all the DLC's then I think it definetely should be in that list. The final episode is one of the best endings I've seen in a long time, Im talking about this: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
MoveTheGlow  +   1309d ago
I've yet to play the full version, but the demo blew me away. As a classical fan, hearing Dvorak 9 as a giant sword stabbed through the entire planet was awesome!

I'd add Legend of Grimrock too, but that's a little obscure *dons hipster glasses*
TopDudeMan  +   1310d ago
I do want to give tribes a try. Looks pretty good.
AnarchistAbe  +   1309d ago
I...really disagree with this list...

There were a couple of terrible games on that list. A few good ones too, but a couple of terrible ones.
aDDicteD  +   1309d ago
walking dead should be on the list,, even though it's not complete yet,just episode 1 and 2, still it's one of the games majority enjoyed this year
LittleBigSackboyPS3  +   1309d ago
I'm glad Kingdoms of Amalur made that list such a great RPG.
Acquiescence  +   1309d ago
No The Walking Dead or Gravity Rush...
Glaring omissions. Fair enough, all 5 episodes of the former aren't out yet, but there's no excuse for leaving Gravity Rush out. That game is something else.
MoveTheGlow  +   1309d ago
This is, you could say, a procedurally generated list. It was solely based on their review scores - they moved from their own 9.0 scores to their 9.5's, and that's it.

If you want to blame something, don't blame the list, blame the reviewer who gave Gravity Rush a 7.5. Or visit a site that liked the game a little more.

i to own starhawk to me its so hit and miss sometimes i play it and its off the charts fun sometimes i play and it pisses me off within 10 mins

i only like to play classic beta TDM but people that know where all the hawk upgrades r ruin the game 1 good hawk pilot can destroy the other teams base in 5 sec on top of that its to common to get a good team vs a noob team witch=no fun lol
OmniSlashPT  +   1309d ago
Journey > everything else

I doubt any game this year can surpass Journey, it's just so unique and memorable.
Hicken  +   1309d ago
Same here. So far, everything else I've played this year is a distant second to Journey. Gravity Rush would probably take that spot, if it weren't for Journey.
LordSane  +   1309d ago
Mass Effect 3 - 9.5, seriously? 9.5, for poorly made shooter from EA? oh wait... it's IGN... okay then.
Roccetarius  +   1309d ago
Mass Effect 3 doesn't even belong there. What a letdown the series was after the first game. They continued to remove features from the game.
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1309d ago
Day z! But of course it's not an official retail game.
StreetsofRage  +   1309d ago
I seen some bad lists before, but this one takes the cake.
arbitor365  +   1309d ago
