These were the most-downloaded PS4 games of 2017

Firday the 13th coming in at #3 is a surprise

Sony has broken down 2017’s most-downloaded games on PlayStation Network.

While the list doesn’t include PlayStation 3 this year, we’ve got a rundown of the most popular PS4, PlayStation VR, and Vita games, as well as PS Classics, PS4 add-ons, and oh yes, PS4 themes.

I’m happy to report that one of the console’s dancing skeleton themes, “Skeleton Dance HiQ Dynamic Theme,” just barely made the charts at #10 on the most-downloaded themes list.

The fact that the lone YouTube video demoing this particular theme uses off-screen footage only adds to the charm. “Cud not find anything on YouTube giving a little Preview before purchase so I decided 2 bite the bullet and purchase it anyway to give u peeps a peek enjoy this Groovy beat!!!,” notes uploader VIIIVILLAINIX. Good shit. That said, I’m more of a Tropical Skeleton Dance man myself.
