The latest edition of Pulse, Sony’s news roundup video feature, has revealed that I Am Alive topped the PlayStation Network charts in April. This is a bit surprising considering I Am Alive received mixed reviews.
While exact sales figures weren’t revealed, Ubisoft’s downloadable action-adventure title managed to beat out Journey, which is actually kind of surprising. The art game from thatgamecompany went on to become the fast-selling PlayStation Network game of all time, so to learn that I Am Alive, which didn’t fare as well among review sites, actually managed to top it comes as quite a shocker.
It’s worth pointing out that a single Vita game made the list. Escape Plan, which also received its fair share of mixed reviews, just made it onto the list, snagging the number 10 spot.
Other noteworthy games that made the list include Skullgirls, The Walking Dead, and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES. All of these games have been held in high regard by gamers, so it goes without saying that their spots are well deserved. Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, on the other hand, makes absolutely no sense. Seriously, who even wants to play that?
