Despite going up against higher profile titles like Thief and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, Strider managed to come out on top as the number one downloaded game on the PlayStation Network in the second month of 2014. Talk about the little title that could, eh?
Strider beating out all of the other games on the list is a testament to how gameplay and fun is what ultimately matters. It also says something about how strong word of mouth can help a title that would have normally been lost in the shuffle have a chance to shine. It’s also probably due to Strider’s long absence from being the main character in a game and of course, a $15 asking price didn’t exactly hurt either.
So congrats to Strider and everyone who helped create it. You can read my gushing review of it here. Below I’ve posted the entire list of the top 20 PS4 games that were downloaded from the PSN for your reading pleasure.
