I wanted to buy Megaman 9 but the DLC didn't sit well with me so I skipped it.

@Glyn: You're welcome :)


Nice to see Sideway New York in there, only tried the demo but thought it was quite good, shocking name though.

A few others not on the list that folk could check out: Papo & Yo, Costume Quest, Stacking, Jetpack Joyride.

Pretty good list but I think you forgot a few such as:
Guacamelee!
Dyad
Velocity
Mutant Blobs Attack
Okami HD
Shatter
3 on 3 NHL Arcade (a blast with friends)
Bomberman Ultra (also a blast with friends)
...

but I guess you just can't list them all :)

Good to see Sound Shapes on there, nowhere near enough people bought that master piece, I don't think any of the CV regulars bough it either which makes me sad :cry:

Good to also see Unfinished Swan and Motorstorm RC on there as well.

Guacamelee is missing which imo is possibly the best or at least top 3 of the PSN games I've played. Muttant Blobs should be on there also instead of crap like Pacman and Megaman :wink:


However this is a list made from opinions so it's never going to be able to please everyone.

Dead Nation,whilst fun in co-op for a couple of hours,is highly over rated.

CVG you are taking the p**s. You absolutely slated Motorstorm RC in your review and now you put it in your top 30 PSN titles!


There's a few glaring omissions on there and its pretty obvious whoever put it together has a thing for side scrolling beat em ups. I like Scott Pilgrim but top 30 PSN games?

NOT A FLIPPING CHANCE!

Only just got round to playing this. Started it a couple of days ago and it's on another level, just absolutely stunning. I always heard it never did well when it released originally which I find completely incomprehensible?!

There are so many psn games i haven't played yet :( I've never touched a pixeljunk game or fat princess. I wanted beat sketcher and echocrome. And the sam and max demo was great!!! Now i'm getting vaguely interested in tokyo jungle.


I was a little worried you'd make this list without The Unfinished Swan.
