Should I grab any others before the end of the day? I have a few more dollars in my PSN wallet.

I've heard many good things about Papo & Yo and seen it listed on several "best of" internet lists. Of course, such things are to be taken with a grain of salt, but it's something you can look into.

There's also The Cave, which is supposed to be kind of similar to Maniac Mansion.

Malicious is pretty cool. It's like a boss rush 3d beat em up.

My views on Papo & Yo from 2012 when I beat it.

Papo & Yo - PSN
Before I even talk about the game I have to say that covering the topics of abusive parents and alcoholism is a difficult task in any medium and not one that is covered in video games very often. The game opens with a quote “To my mother, brothers and sisters with whom I survived the monster in my father.” and it pretty much sets the tone for the game.

Papo & Yo puts you into the mind of a young boy with an abusive, alcoholic father via fantasy world full of puzzles. The gameplay itself is very enjoyable with some clever puzzles, the story is told using metaphors, no all are subtle. The boy struggles tries throughout the entire game to help monster (his father) only for the father to constantly turn into fits of rage when consuming frogs (alcohol).

It handles the topic in a way I would not think possible for a video game and despite low reviews (4/10, IGN) I feel the game breaks a lot of ground in story telling and does so with enjoyable puzzle / platforming, which I can only compare to Ico.

If you have been on the fence about it, or have not heard about it, I highly recommend it, I generally don't buy in to 'video games are art', I make an exception with Papo & Yo, not only for its amazing visuals and concepts (though sometimes there are slowdowns) but for its ability to take you into the mind of a troubled youth and watch as he tries to come to terms with his father.
