Sony revealed the list of top downloaded games for the PlayStation store today, and it may surprise you. Rocket League, the little title that continues to release patches and DLC, was downloaded more than any other game in 2016. This is even more impressive considering the game was free with PS Plus in July 2015.
Rounding out the top five on the PS4 are Battlefield 1, Minecraft, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, and Tom Clancy’s The Division. The perennial Grand Theft Auto V was pushed to number six, but it was at the number 4 slot for December.
It looks as if Sony’s relationship with Activision is paying some serious dividends. The top PS4 add-ons for the year are mostly dominated in the 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th slots by Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Destiny and The Elder Scrolls were numbers two and three.
The top PS4 add-ons for the December were mostly season passes for Final Fantasy XV, Star Wars Battlefront, The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Year 2 Pass. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – ESO Plus was number 3.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
