What does Sonic Forces have in common with Modern Warfare Remastered, Black Ops 3, Destiny 2, and Shadow of the Colossus?
According to Sony, each are the top five most redeemed monthly PlayStation Plus games across the 10 years since the service began. Forces is featured on Sony’s PlayStation Plus 10 year anniversary infographic, highlighting stats and landmarks from June 2010 through April 2020.
It might seem surprising that a divisive Sonic game would crack Sony’s top five in an entire decade of PlayStation Plus. However, both Sonic Forces and Shadow of the Colossus were available on the service March 3, 2020 through April 6, 2020, overlapping with COVID-19 quarantine efforts.
Beyond the five most redeemed, Sony also lists the five most played online multiplayer games (that require PlayStation Plus) as Grand Theft Auto 5, Rainbow Six Siege, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, Destiny, and Call of Duty Black Ops.
