    I have some money from a PSN card on my account. I've got approximately $20 available.

    I am currently torn between Lumines Supernova, Soldner-X and Wipeout HD. I'm also open to some recommendations on other games.

    Please note, I have SSF2THDR and Pixeljunk Monsters Encore.

    I only have Wipeout HD so I can only recommend that one. The trophies are hard as shit to get the online is cool. Listening to my own soundtrack is a nice bonus. The game runs smooth, controls are responsive it has voice chat and a recent update added an easier difficulty. If you are into racers buy it now, if not Lumines I hear is a great puzzle game.

    Bionic Commando Rearmed was pretty fun. Everything from the gameplay to the soundtrack left me satisfied.

    If you're a shmups fan like myself, go with Soldner-X. I recently purchased it on PSN and it's pretty awesome. Wipeout HD is next on the list.

    Bionic Commando Rearmed is spectacular if you haven't tried it. Although I got it on 360, it's my favorite downloadable game I've ever gotten from any of the systems. That would be my first choice.

    I also like Pixeljunk Eden, but it may be a little artsy for some. I believe there is a demo for it though so you can try it. I wish more PSN games had demos actually.

    Wipeout HD basically feels like a full game for $20 which is cool and it looks great, but it's so damn hard I had trouble getting into it.

    Those Ratchet & Clank games were some of the most fun Ive ever had wit hthe platforming.

    Wipeout's awesome, it's like FZero for adults, and a perfect game to test your musical zen playing too

    Seconded!!

    Also, if you didn't get the free voucher for it with your PS3, Pain is hella fun, even if it is deceptively hard.

    I say pain. its a entertaining game that's easy to pick up yet difficult to master. And the expansions add tons of fun. I say get pain, the amusement park add on, and the hoff. That's a combo that will have you addicted for a long time.

    No PS1 games for me. The only one I am remotely curious about was Castlevania Chronicles, and I have yet to see any worthwhile reviews of it.

    I had played The Last Guy demo, wasn't too into it. Same with Pixeljunk Eden. I played Pain on my brothers system, did not like it. I'm iffy on Ratchet and Clank. From what I've read, the game is fairly short.

    Bionic Commando was a very good demo. I liked the NES game as well, so that may be an option. I have been tempted by Super StarDust. I really wish there were demos for these.

    Right now, I am looking at the following:

    - Wipeout HD
    - Soldner-X
    - Megaman 9
    - Bionic Commando Rearmed
    - Crash Commandos
    - Super StarDust

    There's always Tekken 5: Dark Res if you want to spend a few more dollars... It was downloadable last time I looked.
