    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.

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

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