What game should I get?

10 replies 125 views Edited Dec 28, 2012

I have a little over $20 left in my PSN wallet and I was planning on purchasing a game that I haven't had the opportunity to play yet. I was just wondering which game you guys would recommend getting. 

 

Here's what I'm considering:

 

1) AC: Brotherhod (never actually played another AC game after the second)

2) Journey (I've heard so many great things about it)

3) The Walking Dead (Again, nothing but positive comments heard)

4) Batman: Arkham Asylum (Only got 24% completion and never had the chance to finish the game to play Arkham City)

 

I realize that this list is pitting two PSN games (even if they were released on disc) against two retail games, but I just wanted to seek the opinions of other gamers on the matter. 

 

Thanks!

My order would be...

  1. The Walking Dead
  2. AC: Brotherhood
  3. Journey
  4. Batman: Arkham Asylum

So yeah, get The Walking Dead 1st.

Yeah play them all, TWD was probably one if not the best game in 2012, and it has replay value so... Smiley Happy

Okami HD. Remake of the PS2 game but the game play is more fluid thanks to the addition of the Playstation Move controler. Btw the game is $20. My second suggestion is "The Walking Dead". You can get all 5 episodes for $20.

I would have said Journey for the experience it gives, as well as probably the best visuals and sound in a game today.

My Playstation Collection consists of:
152 PS3 games - 564 PS2 games - 72 PS1 games - 202 PSP games - 11 PS Vita games

Over 1,100 games total Smiley Happy

The Walking Dead is something to consider. It's a great story-driven game. Journey is also a great game. It's short but it's different from most games.

Walking Dead or Journey, you cant go wrong with either of them. one is a GOTY and the other is a GOTY nominee.

 

and dont waist your PSN cash on games you can get in real life. especially games you can get for dirt cheap now.

actually, you can aslo pick up The Walking Dead in disc for now, all the episodes on one disc. be it thats $30, its **bleep** worth it. Smiley Very Happy

I'd go with either Walking Dead or Journey. Both are truly awesome games.

Arkham Asylum is great, and probably offers more value, but you've already played it a bit. From my experience, picking up a game for a bit and dropping it might ruin it for a future return. I'd save that one for later.

 

Here's my choice: The Walking Dead.

 

Assasins's Creed Brotherhood? Buy it to throw it in the trash one day.

 

Journey? It's short, really short. 2-3 hours long.
