Another from the PlayStation Blogcast. This time Mr. Adam Boyes, Vice President of Sony Publisher & Developer Relations. Starts around 1:03, ends 1:30.

These aren't strictly PS exclusives, but games that appeared on either PS3 or VITA this generation.

10. Red Dead Redemption

9. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

8. Bionic Commando

7. Far Cry 3

6. Journey

5. Diablo III

4. Hotline Miami

3. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix

2. The Last of Us

1. Grand Theft Auto V

Notes:

  • Adam admits he's biased to the games he worked on and has a bad memory
  • honourable mention for DiveKick on Vita, "but Iron Galaxy is still the worst"
  • thinks U3 is better than U1, mechanically, but 1 had the most impact
  • ACIV is not on this list, but Adam has played it for 70-80 hours
  • When he re-reads the list, he swaps Journey and FC3's ranking (bad memory at work I guess)

I don't get this Iron Galaxy thing. What exactly is the reason they're so hated? And is it really a thing for such a prominent person to be calling a developer the worst?

It's a joke amongst friends.

He's kidding around. He's friends with Dave Lang right?

Ah, ok. Just that I've seen/heard the statement enforced by the GB crew a few times. Boyes seems to be a pretty cool guy :)

No one is friends with Dave Lang. Dave Lang is a callous capitalist money-grubbing slave-driving bastard.

There's a surprising lack of PlayStation exclusives on that list. That being said...

WHERE THE FUCK ARE YAKUZA 4 AND VALKYRIA CHRONICLES, BOYES?

I like Dave Lang in secret. I'd rather not be blacklisted by association.

In retrospect, it's kind of insane that they ever Quick Looked World Gone Sour.

I mean, GB also ironically Quick Looked those Doritos games, but still.
