IGN’s Top 25 PSN Games of All Time

Greg Miller's Avatar + Posted by Greg Miller on Feb 28, 2013 // Executive Editor, IGN

Holy crap, I’m posting on the PlayStation.Blog. I’ve been reading this thing for years and saying “Shut up, Jeff and Sid; I can write that better than you!” And here I am. I’ve made it. Beyond.

Anyway, IGN.com is this website I work for, and it’s the Internet’s No. 1 source for video game news, previews, reviews and videos. My Podcast Beyond cohost Colin Moriarty and I sat down not too long ago, and hashed out the 25 PSN games we’d recommend to folks with a PS3. Gameplay, graphics, story – it all factored in here. But there’s something different about this iteration of the list.


Namely: this is the last year we’re going to make it.

We’re not done covering PlayStation Network, we’re not saying nothing’s coming out this year – we’re saying that PSN games are so good that there’s no point in treating them differently. There’s no point in not letting them compete with the biggest boxed games. Journey was IGN’s 2012 Game of the Year; clearly, these titles are good enough to just be considered “PlayStation 3 games.” Plus, it goes the other way; PS3 games are available digitally now on PSN, so what’s the point in differentiating? Great games are great games.

So, this list is it. The best PSN games you can possibly buy. Did your favorites make the cut? Click on over, read the article, and leave an insightful comment. If you do, you’re entered to win a PSN voucher code that will get you all 25 games. That’s right: go comment on the IGN article and you have a chance at walking away with all 25 PSN games.

I am also told that leaving a comment on this here PlayStation.Blog post before 11:59pm Pacific Time tonight will enter you in a random drawing to score the same 25 PSN games. Not bad, right? The giveaway has ended and the winner has been contacted!

Beyond!

Congrats Greg, its great to see you and Colin getting some recognition in this blog, as a long time IGN fan I have follow a lot of your recommendations for when I buy games (including reviews and top lists), hope more ps3 fans appreciate your efforts.

The only “PSN” Games i have bought are journey and the unfinished swan, and tha’s because of you guys, with all the triple A games there’s not enough time to play all the indie games, but i hope I could pick more from this list

keep the good work

Beyond!

It took an AMAZING game to knock of Shatter, but Journey clearly is #1. I’m sure Colin has mixed emotions on that event.

I really like your lists, Greg and Colin. Honestly, the hate you guys get for creating lists on games you hope gamers like us just check out is unbelievable. Even if I don’t agree on a game, I can always say I’m really glad you made the list because I discover a new game each time with them. Keep up the awesome work, sad to hear this will be the last list, but it was a good one! :) Beyond!

Overall, great list! After accumulating over 100 PSN titles I noticed 7 even I don’t own. I do have a few suggestions to add….but I won’t.

I’m happy to see Journey in the #1 spot. After reading Powerhouse’s review I had to go try it for myself. Whoever is lucky enough to win all of these games is in for a real treat! BEYOND

Great list Colin and Greg. My top PSN game has to be Castle Crashers, since I found that it was really refreshing to play with its hybrid of beat-em’ up and RPG. BEYOND!!!!

Nice to see Tokyo Jungle, Unfinished Swan, Dead Nation, Journey, Flower. Those are quality games. Suprised at some of the rankings and that Flow wasn’t on the list. Some of them I have in my download list like Rochard.

Either way PSN has tons going of stuff to offer. Good list.
