    Just saw where Rocket League was the most downloaded game on PSN in 2016.

    To me, that’s got to be the story of the year.

    No surprise, but it’s also good to see NBA 2K (#11) finishing ahead of Madden (#16) despite the later release, and despite Madden being at least $10 cheaper than 2K17 on PSN over the holidays.

    • Yep that’s pretty remarkable.

      Cheap, free at one point, and fun. Not that surprising

        I could be wrong, but I believe it was free in 2015, which makes the 2016 downloads title even more impressive.

          If that is true then I would have to agree with you. I know I had never heard of the game until I got it free from PsPlus. I played it quite often after that and downloaded more free add-ons but never paid anything. It’s probably the best game I ever played with hearing no hype before it.
