Recession Friendly Gaming

Let's face it. This Recession sucks and the price of games isn't getting any cheaper. It's still $50-$60 for a new game on a system that you already paid hundreds of dollars to own. To make matters worse, if you don't like the game the best thing you can do is trade it in for 1/3 of what you paid for it. It's a scam man.

There is hope though..

This generation of gaming has brought something great. Downloadable videogames. These games usually cost no more than $15 and bring just as much fun as a $60 title. You just use the online service provided by the system to download these games. The best part? You don't have to get up and change the disc since the games download onto your systems hard drive.


A lot of these downloadable games are crap. This is where I need your help. Can anybody name some good downloadable titles on any of the major consoles?

Flower for sure is worth every penny.

I also loved echochrome. I guarantee you've never played a puzzle game before like this. And I'm not even that big of a fan of puzzle games.

PixelJunk Eden was great. I haven't tried PixelJunk Monsters but I hear it's really good too.

Linger in Shadows. Best $3 I have ever spent. At first I "didn't get it" but after a little while with it I was hooked. Trophy hunting for that one was great.

The downloadable Ratchet & Clank game I loved. Runs butter, butter smooth. Some people said it wasn't worth the $15 for only 3 hours of play but I don't regret my purchase at all.
