Top 5 Downloadable Games of 2012

"To be clear, by “downloadable” we mean games that are exclusively (or at least launched exclusively) available on online stores. So while you now can go ahead and download almost any AAA title on Steam or Xbox 360′s Games on Demand service if you want, retail games are excluded here." (3DS, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Fez, Journey, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Pushmo, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Wii U, Xbox 360)

Hotline Miami isn't on that list, but american nightmare is?
I see.

I personally haven't played Hotline Miami but I'm not exactly sure why American Nightmare should be the go-to title to slam the entire list.

I suppose the thing that makes me hold AW's AN in higher regard was the fact that it successfully funneled gameplay/graphical components into what made the original an exemplary $60 title for a quarter of the price. Try stepping back for one moment and compare it with what's been done to the DL TPS in year's past. There's that sense of archaic structure when I personally compare it to...something like Monday Night Combat.

Legend of Grimrock should have been on there or at least runner up.

Mutant Blobs Attack is not a Sony game - it's also on Steam.

The Walking Dead is not a Sony game - it's multiplatform.

Try again.

The term downloadable games does not really work anymore seeing as PC is nearly completely digital and consoles are building up their digital services.
OmniSlashPT  +   1016d ago
They're games you can only get through download. You can get Skyrim or FC3 for the PC at any game store (eventhough no one does that anymore lol).
OmniSlashPT  +   1016d ago
Alan Wake better than Journey? No Hotline Miami, FTL, Mark of the Ninja, The Unfinished Swan or Soundshapes? not sure if serious...
