Best Download-Only Games

Postby Captain_Crunch1 » January 23rd, 2015, 7:47 am


We all know the VGC isn't fond of download-only titles, so to change his mind, let's list the best download-only games you played! I'll start:

1) Shovel Knight (3DS)
2) Bastion (Xbox 360)
3) Double Dragon Neon (Xbox 360)

Haven't tried it, but my friend Brent swears the Unfinished Swan is one of the best games he's played in recent years.  Anyone tried it?

I recently played and finished Pappo & Yo (PS3). I thought it was great! I have played the demo to Unfinished Swan and it was good.

Five good ones in no particular order:

1) Hotline Miami (PS3 & Vita)
2) Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, The (PS4 & Vita) [played on PC]
3) Shovel Knight (Wii U & 3DS) [played on PC]
4) Shadow Complex (XBox 360)
5) Super Meat Boy (XBox 360)

Also, while I don't have a PS4, I watched like five different people on Youtube play through P.T. and it's worth a download, especially considering that it's free.

[QUOTE=videogamecritic]Haven't tried it, but my friend Brent swears the Unfinished Swan is one of the best games he's played in recent years.  Anyone tried it?[/QUOTE]

It's on sale for $5 this weekend only.  I picked it up and combined it a 10% off for $4.50.

It's differently different.  If you like games like flower and journey you'll like it.  If you prefer something that blows up it's not going to be your cup of tea.  I only spent about 15 minutes with it but found the experience novel enough for the price of an expensive cup of coffee.

ie, it's $5, try it for yourself.  If you don't like it you only wasted a Lincoln.
