If you own a PlayStation system and are still wondering if a PS Plus membership is worth it, take a look at the games being offered free for members in February. On the heels of January’s offers such as Bioshock Infinite, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and the highly acclaimed indie sandbox Don’t Starve, Sony is not slowing down in the month of love. Rather than getting all sentimental on you, Sony is offering some high-tension games this month:
For those who have a PS4, you will get access to Outlast, the survival horror game in which you must navigate an insane asylum without getting killed by the inmates. From what I hear, the game is not for the faint of heart. PS3 owners get the first-person shooter Metro: Last Light, the bank-robbing coop game Payday 2, as well as the third-person adventure Remember Me. All three games have received really nice reviews, and will definitely give you an excuse to spend some quality time with your PlayStation next month. Who cares about chocolate and flowers when you and your other half can plan heists?
Last but not least, PS Vita owners will have the chance to download Street Fighter X Tekken and the kart racing game ModNation Racers: Road Trip. While not relatively recent releases, the games are still positively reviewed and definitely good for on-the-go gaming.
These games are definitely nothing to snicker at, and for less than $6/month for a PS Plus membership they can all be yours for free. Sony is really stepping up to the plate here, offering big titles that haven’t even been out for a year, and they seem to be getting better every month. It’s getting harder every month for me to find the time (and the hard drive space!) to play these games, but they sit there in wait. Constantly taunting me. Maybe one day I’ll be able to play everything on my list. Maybe.
