Another month, another tough decision! I’m rather curious to see how this one shakes out, though.
It was an impressive month for PlayStation VR, with Tetris Effect melting minds, Beat Saber melting calories, and Déraciné melting hearts. The PS4 lineup was similarly strong, with big names like Spyro, Hitman and Battlefield returning to the fold.
Sadly, only one new game can claim to be the best, and that’s where you come in. Below you’ll find a poll — you probably know how those work by now, so I won’t bore you with the details. We’ll close ’em Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific, so get to it before then!
What is the voting criteria? That’s up to you! If you were only able to recommend one new release to a friend that month, which would it be? In keeping with our long tradition in the Game of the Year Awards, remastered or re-released games won’t qualify. Ambitious, larger-scale rebuilds and remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will.
How are nominees decided? The PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation Store editorial teams will gather a list of that month’s most noteworthy releases and use it to seed the poll. Write-in votes will be accepted.
