PlayStation Plus Free Games might not have had the same big games as Xbox Games with Gold lately, but they’re usually a decent enough service that has put a smile on the face of many a gamer. They have also been a great place to showcase underrated titles that might have been avoided by most gamers, and today we will be discussing which forgotten gems we would like to be given away for free.
Knowing Sony, we will definitely see some newer indie games for free for the month, which is far from a bad thing. Still, there are some games that were not as good as others, so if we had a choice, here are the titles we would like to be included as free games in August.
Day of the Tentacle (PS4)
A wonderful adventure game from Tim Schafer, Day of the Tentacle would be perfect as one of the PlayStation Plus Free Games. Like Grim Fandango and Broken Age, the adventure game is filled with interesting characters and humor that should please gamers new and old.
Unlike Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle has 2D sprites for its graphics, similar to Schafer’s other hit, Monkey Island. They have aged a bit better, thanks to the HD upgrade, and would be great for any curious PS Plus user.
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel (PS3)
With its second part coming out soon, it would be great to see this RPG as a free PS Plus game. The use of some of the best elements from Persona and Suikoden has made JRPG fans love this title. Add fast-paced turn-based combat and an intriguing story, it’s clearly a recipe for greatness.
Despite getting a steady fan base in recent years, The Legend of Heroes series is still pretty unknown compared to RPG juggernauts like Final Fantasy and the Tales Of games. Making the most recent installment free would be a win-win situation, since it will be introduced to newer gamers.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (PS Vita)
Easily the best Digimon game of all time and a wonderful Vita RPG in its own right, this title is a nostalgic treat for fans but also modern enough to appeal to newer gamers. While it also came out on the PS4, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is truly at home on Sony’s underrated handheld.
