Rockstar's open-world outlaw epic took home the most votes -- by a wide margin -- to secure the title of October's best new game.
Congratulations, Rockstar! Red Dead Redemption 2 trounced the competition in the polls for October, earning its place as the month’s best new game. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey each made a respectable showing, but not enough to take the top spot.
As we draw closer to the end of the year, which games do you think will take the win for November and December?
Goodness gracious, what a month! Look at all those games! Look me in the eye and tell me you can pick just one.
Well, I mean, you’re gonna have to.
Cast your vote for October’s best new game below, and we’ll tally ’em up first thing Monday morning. See you 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.
