The Top 20 Highest Rated PSN Games by European PS3 users

As many of you know, in the recent firmware update v3.40, one of the many features introduced was the ability to rate content on the PlayStation Store.

For us this was one of the best new additions to the PS3 because it assists gamers when choosing what games to buy for their system.

So that’s why we decided to come up with a list of the top 20 highest rated PSN games.

So here are the top 20 games on the European PlayStation Store, rated by you!

I think this shows that fans love their classic gaming. I wonder how companies will respond to these numbers.

Wipeout HD and FF7 get screwed here though because of their popularity which should be taken into account here.

Only thing I can't fathom is why Oddworld is No. 2. Also interesting to see that Final Fantasy has so many of the Top 10 slots.

I'd like to see more original titles in the Top 5 or developers might just start trying to fob us off with remakes... don't you think?

I want flower higher... But all games on the list is good ;-)

ChronoJoe3032d ago

What? you complain about the lack of original titles, but question why oddworld is in number 2?

Something wrong with you.

DolphGB3032d ago

I just didn't like Oddworld. My personal opinion. If you like it, good for you. I won't call you names because of your personal opinion.

When he said original I think he simply meant newer titles rather than unique games. Oddworld is around 12 years old after all. I see his point, but I personally don't mind seeing old games getting recognised.

I like how gamers can become loyal to their favourite series or to certain developers. That emotional attachment adds a bit of an edge to gaming. For me, I'd feel like a mindless consumer without that attachment; always waiting for the next thing to waste my money on.

I think it's because gamers are a sentimental lot, always looking back at the old classics with a single tear in their eye. In saying that, Oddworld, as good a game as it was, being second is an odd one. Metal Gear being top is pretty awesome though. That reminds me, I've been meaning to buy it so I could replay on my PSP.

Oddworld is awesomesauce. That's why it's so high up there.

But there are far too many people rating that think anything less than 5 means it's absolutely crap!

C'mon people, Ratings don't mean anything if everything is scored between 4, 4.5, and 5. Use the 1, 2, 3s!

seanoc3032d ago

Yeah, definitely. It should even out in time though. What we're seeing now is fans going back to their favourite franchises first to rate them five stars to show how much they love them. In the future, we'll see more people rating games straight after playing them which should hopefully result in varied opinions.

Maybe Sony should have had a rating scale on the site that went something like this:

5 - Legendary
4 - Great
3 - Good
2 - Alright
1 - Not so good

We should also be able to rate within the XMB. Gamers who bought the game a long time ago may be more likely to rate it.

I'm not a big fan of ratings alone, they should let people comment like in iTunes Store.
