PSNStores Top 25 PSN Exclusives

Posted by on June 21st, 2011 | 23 Comments | Tags: ,

Every once in a while we get asked what our favorite PSN titles are. Most the time I spout off five or so of what I consider to be must haves. Recently we decided that a definitive list for the site would be a good idea. This comes after reading IGN.com’s list and not agreeing with it one bit (opinions!).

So after writing down every PSN exclusive (I consider games not on Xbox 360 as exclusive) in a huge Google Doc, the boys and I went on Skype and whittled it down to 25. There were some games that were so close to making the list, shout-outs to Comet Crash and Siren, but we think we have a set of 25 bangers.

If you hate clicks, skip right to here. The final page has all 25 titles so you can call us hideous names in the comments for leaving out your favorite PSN title. But we do have a little write up for each one with a trailer if you do care to see why it makes the cut.

Let the list wars begin!

    Lol, I own 19 games from IGN’s list and 19 games from PSNStores list. Don’t know which one is better (though I have to say a game is not “better” than another if it is exclusive).

    • Eric G

      True, it’s not necessarily better if it’s exclusive. We just wanted to highlight some of the reasons why we love the PlayStation Network especially. All platforms have their gems; we just think the PSN’s collection is extra shiny!

    • HJB

      Being exclusive doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better, but exclusives tend to be of superior quality, so if you’re saying a game can’t be better if it’s exclusive then I strongly disagree with you.

    Wait, what, Critter Crunch over Flower? Is button mashing more important to the author than art and atmosphere?

  • shagg187

    Critter Crunch is not button mashing. Nevertheless, great list!

  • Explodemon isn’t exclusive for PSN… However it’s a great list, but I never found Pixeljunk Monster to be that fun; and where is Trine!? That game should easily take 1st place according to me, although it has been released on PC, but not any other console.

    • Eric G

      What else is Explodemon! on? I’m not aware of any other platform.

    • boingball

      Hey, Pixeljunk Monster is great! The PSP version is the version to get though.

  • Mechdevil

    Why isn’t Wipeout HD first??? It’s too amazing to be sitting at 5, it should at least be in the top 3

  • brewer

    Pretty good list with a lot of my favorites up there (SSHD, Wipeout HD, Critter Crunch, Flower and Shatter).

    Kind of disappointed that Siren Blood Curse didn’t make the cut, its on of the best horror game I played this gen, good crazy story that scarred the shit out of me multiple times while playing. I think Sony really messed up not promoting that game more.

  • George

    Great list. I have 17 of the 25. Now I wonder what the list would be if it were not limited to PlayStation exclusives.

    • Eric G

      INC MULTIPLATFORM LIST. Lol, we actually conjured up a multiplatform list that will be released in the near future. Thanks for checking it out!

    • boingball

      Looking forward to that list:-)

  • Chris Cobb

    Wow I’m surprised I agree with this list even less than the IGN one. Though this one does include more PixelJunk, which I approve of.

    I still can’t believe that both lists are lacking Clash of Heroes. Absolutely criminal.

  • Chris Cobb

    I know this list is supposed to be PSN exclusive, but there are a least a few exceptions. CoH should be one of them.

    • We have that on our Multiplatform list don’t worry 🙂

    • Eric G

      “So after writing down every PSN exclusive (I consider games not on Xbox 360 as exclusive)”
      CoH is Capy’s first XBLA game. No other game on this list is on XBLA. Thanks for stopping by, though.

    Siren is better than every game on that list

    • Sadly I don’t think anyone here is a huge survival horror fan. So none of us have played it. I hear good things though

  • 413x

    Hmm where is StarDrone!

  • Great job.

  • Wow I haven’t actually played most of the titles on the list. HOARD is on PC, too. But sadly without the local multiplayer.

  • Buttelli

    Shatter in sixth? ARE YOU F#CKING KIDDIN ME?!
