The numbers are in: It’s time to break down the Top 20 PSN games from October! Whether you’ve played them all or missed a game or two, we hope you’ll find this month’s numbers informative and interesting. This list tracks top games purchased, downloaded and installed; it does not track games given away as part of PlayStation Plus. With that, let’s get to the list!
In the chill of October, PSN gamers have been keeping warm with NBA JAM: On Fire Edition! But co-op bank robbery shooter PAYDAY: The Heist came in close (with a release in the later part of October as well), along with other new arrivals including Dungeon Defenders and Crysis. Also notable are the PS2 Classics that hit the Store with Odin Sphere and God Hand both cracking the top 20.
Which game was your favorite? Are there any titles you expected to make the cut for October but didn’t chart? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, and we’ll see you with the next Top 20 next month.
1. NBA Jam: On Fire Edition: He’s on fire! This all-new NBA Jam hit PSN in a big way, scoring the coveted top slot. Bigger rosters, legendary players, monster dunks and robust multiplayer support round out this arcade-style basketball classic.
2. PAYDAY: The Heist
4. Chrono Trigger: The launch of this beloved RPG on PSN led to it skyrocketing to the top five downloads for the month. All the more fitting as Square Enix’s “Winter of RPGs” is right around the corner with Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy V, and Final Fantasy VI releasing before the holidays.
5. Resident Evil 4
6. Angry Birds
7. Dungeon Defenders: This online co-op tower defense action RPG made quite an impression on PS3 players. If you loved PixelJunk Monsters, give this bad boy a shot.
8. Castlevania: Harmony of Despair
9. From Dust
10. Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection
11. Saints Row 2
12. Resident Evil 2
13. Final Fantasy VII

17. Real Steel
18. Castle Crashers
19. God Hand
20. Battlefield 1943
