    The fact that most of the top rated PS4 games are just remastered old PS3 or PSVita games, just really shows how truly poor this last year was for the PS4.

    Looking forward to all the good actual PS4 games coming out this year.

    Glad to see the a lot of PS+ games high up. Couldn't understand all the complaints about them (especially don't starve which is brilliant). Seems like everyone was better off getting those free than something like Knack or Killzone which are both fairly poor for big launch titles.

  • Plasmaneedle  

    I can't believe flower is on the list much less on the top

  • M9ki  

    Well i really though thief would be on that list despite the errors many people had with the game.
