FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

The only games on this list that I've played are Far Cry 3 and New Star Soccer.

Far Cry 3 was bloody immense, that deserved the action award certainly!
New Star Soccer for best sport game!? I'm not so sure about that one! I just played that when I was bored. I certainly wouldn't pay money to play it.

I've also never heard of "The Room" (being British and all).

Also, what's The Unifnished Swan? The best innovative game sounds pretty interesting. If anyone's played it let me know your thoughts!

Imagine someone offering you a sample of a new kind of candy, and when you try it, it's the most uniquely delicious thing you have ever tasted. Then, they ask you if you'd like to buy some by the box. You take ten.

That's pretty much The Unfinished Swan. I should make that my review for the game, now.

Dishonored wins best game?

Really?

I have no qualms with Journey getting that much love though.

It seems reasonable for Journey. I mean the game was huge in terms of non-casual gaming. Although I didn't like the multiplayer idea of it - I think PSN as a publisher sometimes has to leave some of the game developers to go with only singleplayer.

Wow, I've watched "The Unfinished Swan" - looks interesting and I didn't see any multiplayer, which is curious Laughing

Offtopic: thanks! This is not my first post though - I started with an article about a game (WarCluster) that excites me, but I guess the moderators have deleted it Smile
