Can I get a recap of the best XBL/PSN games?

Mods, if you feel this is inappropriate, or would prefer I wade through each individual thread, feel free to lock/delete.

I'm looking for XBL/PSN games.

I've only played two, Ratchet and Clank:Quest for Booty and Shadow Complex.

I'm looking for puzzle-adventure/action/platforming, something to kill 5-10 hours and has a decent story.


My list so far looks like this:

Braid
Joe Danger
Deathspank
Limbo


Anything else (maybe even older/cheaper) that I'm completely missing? Thanks in advance.

Thanks.

I compiled my list by looking through a couple reviews sites for downloadable games and those seemed to pique my interest the most based on solid reviews.



also looking forward to the new tomb raider in a few weeks.

Re: Can I get a recap of the best XBL/PSN games?

Trials HD is great. Be aware that it is kind of similar to Joe Danger though, albeit not asthetically. Both are side scrolling stunt courses negotiated on a motorcycle, but Trials is more realistic and physics based, while Joe Danger is more cartoony and arcadey. Trials also gets hair-pulling, controller-throwing, swear-it's-impossible-to-beat-until-you-actually-pull-it-off hard towards the end. I haven't finished Joe Danger yet, but I haven't hit that point in it yet. Trials has a demo, not sure if Joe Danger does. They're both awesome though.

If you've never played the old PS1 classic Castlevania Symphony of the Night, get that. It's available on both XBLA and PSN.

I second Castle Crashers and Trine.

Flower is one of the best times I've had with a downloadable game, but it doesn't really fit the criteria you named. Even so: Flower.

it lacks in story, but take a look at Bionic Commando Rearmed...a lot of fun

My Favorite PSN games that I've bought over the past few years.

1. Flower. Highly creative and very cool.

2. Savage Moon. Awesome graphics. Tower defense type game, and you can use mortar shooting towers, lasers, amp towers to strengthen the ones you already have, machine guns, etc. Really good.

3. Hustle Kings. Simply put, the best pool shooter out there. Full HD graphics, this thing looks SWEET!

4. BRAID. I believe this was originally on the XBL. Very creative game involving time manipulation. Damn cool.
