Gamers, one thing that we can all agree on right no matter which console you own is that there is certainly a drought for new game releases.  So what we have decided to do here at Daily Joystick is to give you our recommendations for some awesome Playstation Network titles, new and old that you really shouldn’t pass up on.  Each of these games is special to each of the team and we wholeheartedly recommend these games to you.  They will certainly fill the void between now and the holiday season and most are reasonably priced or have been known to be on sale from time to time.  So without further waiting, let’s hop to the Daily Joystick PSN recommendations.

1. Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix

A superb puzzle game that is best enjoyed with 2 players, it provides many hours of heated competition as you try to gain an advantage over your opponent mixing and matching gems. This game is incredibly simple to pick up and play and has cutesy appeal in spades. Incorporating familiar Street Fighter aesthetics with a fantastic puzzle game in it’s own right is a recipe for success and this game Shoryuken’s it out of the park. 

Zen-Pinball-2-Sorcerers-Lair

2. Zen Pinball 2

Without a doubt the best pinball game made for the PS3 this game offers up a superb simulation of real pinball that is second to none. Zen Pinball has great variety between tables, my favourite is the Street Fighter 2 table which is a fantastic tribute to a timeless classic. Offering both local and online multiplayer along with scoreboards that let you compare scores with your friends Zen Pinball is the essential experience for pinball enthusiasts.

3. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix

If you’re a fan of Street Fighter or fighting games in general that this game is simply a must have. An amazing update of the best version of SF 2 ever made it offers up superb HD visuals and sound that give it a beautiful modern touch. Offering local and online multiplayer with a tournament mode as an added bonus there’s plenty of modes to keep you busy. Buy this game now.

4. Pixel Junk Shooter

A shooting game that is anything but mindless, Pixel Junk Shooter has you taking on the role of rescuer as you explore a mysterious planet called Apoxus Prime. Rescuing survivors while trekking through incendiary magma, toxic gas and strange creatures that only dwell in the subterranean depths. This game presents a great cerebral challenge that demands to be played.    

FF Double Impact

5. Final Fight Double Impact

2 games in 1, what more could you ask for? Final Fight, the classic arcade side scrolling brawler, this is a pixel perfect conversion that took a lot of my money once upon a time. All the characters and levels intact as is 2 player gameplay either local or online just as it should be. Magical Sword is the other game included and it’s a classic arcade game that is part platformer part side scrolling hack n slash with many towers to climb if you want to save the world. A great addition to round out the package, this is superb value for money.  

nba-jam-on-fire-edition-playstation-3-ps3-1312620643-019

6. NBA Jam On Fire Edition

Wow, what a fantastic update to the original arcade game which is a stone cold classic of the 90′s. What makes the game so great is that it’s a bona fide upgrade to the standard disc edition of NBA Jam but at a fraction of the price and the only way to purchase it is as a digital download. Everything you remember from the arcade is there, the crazy over the top dunks, being able to play as mascots (George Bush and Dick Cheney are even included!) and of course the announcer who always makes me laugh. Absolutely essential. 

Daytona-USA-Wallpaper-003

7. Daytona USA

Anyone who visited an arcade in the 90′s would surely have seen this game. 1 of the most popular and arguably best racing games to grace an arcade it was simple in it’s approach but superb in it’s execution. The PSN conversion is a faithful affair that offers quite a few enhancements to keep you coming back for more. Sadly no split screen 2 player mode is offered but is available over the network. Still a great game in single player mode trying to beat your best time is very addictive. 

Pac Man

8. Pacman Championship Edition DX

Pacman, a game character that needs no introduction and 1 of the defining images of video gaming. This is a brilliant modern take on the classic well all know and love that will delight fans of the original and also convert new fans to the cause. Offering up a plethora of game modes and challenges it’s a shining gem that may be overlooked by some but don’t make the same mistake, it deserves your attention and will provide many hours of enjoyment just like it did back in the 80′s.

retro_city_rampage_06

9. Retro City Rampage

Grand Theft Auto done 8 bit style this game is absolutely bonkers in it’s ideas and execution. Viewed as a top down style game just like the old GTA’s with a retro 8 but art style this game will provide nostalgia hits for those of us who remember the 80′s in fine style. Cross buy and cross save options make it a no brainer if you own both a PS3 and a Vita.  

journey-game-screenshot-1-b

10. Journey 

Journey is a beautiful game like no other. It entices you to embark on a captivating journey through a world of mystery and intrigue that packs an amazing emotional wallop. It offers both single and multiplayer options and it’s regarded along with flow as one of the greatest games available on the Playstation Network. Your library is not complete if you don’t have this game.
