Hi everyone! 2013 has been a very exciting time for everyone involved with PlayStation, and especially the world of PlayStation Plus!
Not only have we grown as a community and shared more and more amazing gaming experiences, but we also welcomed PS4 to the service. We’re confident that you’ll have a great time playing all the games we’ve got lined up for you over the next few months across all three platforms. Sorry, no hints!
But that’s enough about the future for now – we’re here to celebrate the great times we’ve had with 2013’s library of Plus titles. Over the past year we’ve delivered a huge range of top rated titles with an average metacritic rating of 80, proving that PS Plus really is the best place to play.
Check out the video above and remind yourself of the huge games we’ve had in the service this year including Sleeping Dogs, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Thomas Was Alone, Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward and Far Cry 3, to name but a few. And it’s with great pleasure that I can now reveal the top five most downloaded PS Plus games this year:
Why not share your favourite moments and games from PS Plus this year below? We’ve got five PS Plus annual subscriptions to give away to the most thoughtful and/or entertinaing responses. To kick things off here are mine and Fred’s top picks.
Even though it just missed out on making the top five, my favourite game this year was definitely Far Cry 3. Having control over how the story unfolded had me hooked for weeks. The story of the transformation of the innocent Jason Brody into a ruthless hunter, stealthily tracking down Vaas across the lawless island was hugely addictive. I for one am counting down the days until Far Cry 4 might grace my screen!
“I’d echo Chris’ choice if I hadn’t gobbled it down on its original release in 2012! So, my nod goes to the wonderful Velocity Ultra. Futurlab’s top-down shoot ’em up melded clever puzzle mechanics and pure action game smarts and comes up with a true OCD speed run classic. The discovery of the year, to be sure.”
So all that is left for me to say is have a wonderful Christmas, a very happy new year and bring on even more exciting and immersive gaming experiences in 2014 with PlayStation Plus.
