Just wanted to throw out, this is a pretty great idea for a thread! There's definitely past GotYs I would have listened to at the time if I had done enough of my "homework" ahead of time.

Thanks OP

I don't expect PS5 to have it based on what we've seen so far

but if it doesn't, I'm out on Sony hardware I think. I realize I'm an edge case, but it's that important to me.

I've got a lot of PS3 Digital titles more or less held hostage on old hardware, games that I bought with the assumption that PS4 would have BC

I'm sick of endlessly rebuying the same games, I'll just stick to PC where I can my digital purchases seem to last longer. Especially if Sony 1st party stuff now comes there. I can be patient

I'll second Undermine as a good one

it's fresh to Gamepass and it's off to hot start with me.

Gunfire Reborn is another good new one kinda in the vein of Risk of Rain. Still in early access and it needs a lot of polish on production values, but it's well balanced and it's got its' mechanics and progression nailed.

Rogue Legacy, Abyss Odyssey and Dungeons of Dredmor are some of my other favorites I haven't seen mentioned so far.

@onemanarmyy: well you'd pretty much rate it where the critics do then :)

Guess I'm a softie, It's at least and 8/10 for me. I really liked the way it controlled and the basic game loop

Legit stunned to see Abyss Odyssey has a 69 on Metacritic. That's a dang good game

Thank you, thank you for saying this.

Agreed 100%

I don't suspect it matters to a lot of people, but PS3 digital BC is make or break with me with the PS5

What form would be acceptable to you? PS Now is actually pretty good and has the games running on real PS3 hardware but it's streaming-only for PS3 titles. Would access to your own virtual PS3 in the cloud with all your purchases be enough? Minus the games where the soundtrack license has expired of course.

I've been playing some Killzone 3 on PS Now these past few days and it felt lag-free to me. Much better than it used to be.

I'm open to the idea, as long as I don't have to pay a monthly fee to things I've already purchased. Depends on what the offer and implementation ends up being ofc. I can live without all the fancy upgrades XB1 offers their players (modern resolution support etc) tho ofc they'd be nice. Just let me play them somehow.

I understand the likelihood of anything is small and that Cell Architecture isn't easy or cheap to deal with, even now. But this is definitely something they can/could offer if they feel like it. If I have to pay a onetime fee/upcharge for a different version of PS5, so be it. I'd do it.

fwiw I probably have 100+ games through PSN, so my library there is significant.

lack of BC support is why I jumped ship to PC as primary this gen. That stung pretty hard to not have BC support on PS4 after I had put that kinda money into it. I'm not really interested in continuing to support an ecosystem much that doesn't respect my purchases.

This is the wrong takeaway of course, but this makes me actually regret not playing it

You know what, this wasn't the response I intended, but it also is one I'm happy people are expressing. I really think there was something to Mobius more people should have been aware of, and I'm glad after publishing this blog, that there are some people who agree.

Personally I really have no excuse, I had it downloaded on Steam a few years ago. Just never got around to actually jumping in seriously

I tried to the tutorial once and had trouble getting it to run well and never went back. Always meant to, just never did

but yeah, fwiw I'm glad you wrote this up even if it makes me a little sad I didn't see it for myself.
