Our top 10 Playstation Network games that are a “must play”

Martin from DJ Podcasts writes "Gamers, one thing that we can all agree on right no matter which console you own is that there is certainly a drought for new game releases. So what we have decided to do here at Daily Joystick is to give you our recommendations for some awesome Playstation Network titles, new and old that you really shouldn’t pass up on. Each of these games is special to each of the team and we wholeheartedly recommend these games to you. They will certainly fill the void between now and the holiday season and most are reasonably priced or have been known to be on sale from time to time. So without further waiting, let’s hop to the Daily Joystick PSN recommendations." (Journey, PS3)

I really liked Dead Nation and i'm currently REALLY enjoying Thomas Was Alone

The Walking dead aswel is a must

not a bad list but remove #3,#5,#6 and #7 and add the walking dead, pixeljunk monsters, wipeout hd, and super stardust hd.

Q4B isn't a PSN game, it has a retail version

I know a crazy amount of people are going to disagree with me here, and keep in mind this is just my opinion, but I'm really not a fan of indie games in general. Don't get me wrong, there are a couple that I absolutely LOVED. Namely, Terraria, Super Meat Boy, and Dust: An Elysian Tale.

When articles talk about the greatest PSN games, or the best Vita games, I really don't want to hear about indie games - I can play those on any platform I choose. They aren't exclusive to the Vita, nor the PSN. I sort of expect to see games like Fat Princess, or Dungeon Defenders (I know this one isn't an exclusive either).

What I'd really like to see is some great new PSN exclusive games, or some ports of some really great PC exclusives, like Terraria and Dungeon Defenders. To be completely honest, I'd probably never buy an indie game on the PSN, since I can just wait for a $2 sale on steam if I really want it. Lately the only games I've been buying are the PS Classics.

This is the worse top ten list I've seen in... ever.
There's maybe 2 noteworthy games on there, the rest just average.

journey, shatter (if you haven't played Shatter you're missing out big time), dead nation, Super Stardust HD, Flower, pixel junk games, Dungeon Defenders, fat princess, Unfinished Swan, Payday the heist, Sound shapes.

what was this guy thinking? Seems more like a list of the only games HE played while there are much better choices available. I hate to disagree with someones opinion but this really made me scratch my head in confusion.

Only ONE game in that is list is a "must play". The rest I can live without.
Hicken  +   419d ago
Yeah, Journey is about it on this list, though pixeljunk games are always good stuff.
fattyuk  +   419d ago
What an awful list!

How is Flower not on here?

Puzzle Fighter II - Fun game, but an "HD" port of a fun game does not deserve must play status. Especially one that could have been a PS1 classic.
Zen Pinball - Digital pinball machines will never be a must play, since they can never match the experience of the real deal.
Street Fighter II - See Puzzle Fighter II.
PJ Shooter - Fun game, but loads are better.
Final FIght Double Impact - Dungeons and Dragons is better (and without the DRM) and even then we had the quirky Scott Pilgrim / awesome ending song to Double Dragon Neon.
NBA Jam - Great series back in the day, not so much today.
Daytona - See Puzzle Fighter II.
Pacman - Same game with a new coat of paint is a must play now? Don't get me wrong, it's fun, but hardly must play.
Retro City Rampage - Interesting, but nothing about the game really stood out to me.
Journey - I don't personally like it, but many people do, so at least 1 is "right".

^ The list for anyone who wants to avoid giving them a view.

Anyway, there are many better games on the PSN and while people might write it off as their opinion, don't forget that it doesn't mean they played a lot or even several PSN games. Some better games include... Spelunker HD, Blood Dragon, Guacamelee, Shank 1/2, Skullgirls, Castlevania Harmony of Despair, Deathspank, etc.

Warhawk was like the first game to be available on PSN and retailer.

Remanutd has a better list than the one DJSP had. This article sucked.
remanutd55  +   419d ago
I forgot Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty!!!!!! bah, the article list sucks big time in my opinion.
lcsapo  +   419d ago
I've purchased the Unfinished Swan yesterday and I have to tell you this should be a "must have" as well for everyone. The game is brilliant!!! My other 2 favourites are The Journey and the Flower. If you have one or two move controller than the Tumble is a great fun too.
fattyuk  +   419d ago
"The" Flower


"The" Journey

lcsapo  +   419d ago
Sorry, both of them are without "The".
Goro  +   419d ago
inFamous Festival of Blood
Payday: The Heist
The Unfinished Swan
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
Thomas Was Alone
Sound Shapes
Tokyo Jungle

I'm not including any games that have a retail version.
Relientk77  +   419d ago
Wow I don't like this list at all

Also no Fat Princess :(

Good that, Journey is on the list though

it is very safe to say psn has too many great games to just list them in a list of 10.

Great list, nice variety of games chosen, all solid titles in my book.
