Players’ Choice October 2018 Winner: Red Dead Redemption 2

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!

How does it work? At the end of every month, PlayStation.Blog will open a poll where you can vote for the best new game released that month. Soon thereafter, we’ll close the polls, tally your votes, and announce the winner at PlayStation.Blog. PlayStation Store will also showcase some top Players’ Choice winners throughout the year.

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.

  • My vote goes to… Red Dead Redemption 2! It’s so enjoyable and there is so much to do. It’s the first game in years I’ve bought that’s actually worth the money. I got the Collector’s Box with the Ultimate edition and the digital Ultimate Edition.

  • This has been a great year for gaming thus far. Odyssey is the best Assassins Creed game I’ve ever played but RDR2 has amazing writing, greater depth of characters and a more involving story. Not to mention next level graphics and animations. Besides, the voice acting is so much better!

  • Really good graphics and gameplay!

  • Im loving RDR2 but come on, just like every open world before it there are parts that are a bloody mess. Cant tell you how many times Ive ran into a tree because of the wonky horse mechanics. People falling through the ground, just today I stole a coach and was rammed into a tree so I was on foot killing the bounty hunters. All was clear and went to get back on the coach and it kept throwing me off. Required a restart. Hoseas horse died while he was riding it while nobody else was around. NPCs that are invisible (The Gray kid, Bank Teller, Dutch even) Masks and bandanas not staying on after equiping them, horses dieing from a 2 foot fall, enemies that are faster on foot then you are on a horse. It goes on and on in my game. But at the end of the day, im still having a blast and for that it gets my vote. Its NOT a 10 or the 5/5 but its close and thats all that matters…!

  • Tengo Red dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey y Black Ops 4 y sin duda Red dead Redemption 2 es el mejor. Una obra maestra.

  • Astro Bot~

  • Arthur’s story is awesome and I bet that Online is going to be if not better than the Story

  • Everyone’s probably going to vote for RDR2 but I voted for Astro Bot Rescue Mission because it’s an amazing game for VR and it did a spectacular job at it. The only reason why it probably won’t have many votes is because there’s not a lot of users with a PSVR.

  • Astro Bot is dope. My number 1 recommended game if you have VR . Red Dead is second , I personally like the slower pace like the old western epics I watched as a youth.

  • Bought both BO4 and RDR2, red dead is possibly my favorite game of all time now.

  • Red Dead For Sure…….

  • Assassin creed Odyssy is my life , i cant get enogh of it.
    Enjoing every contont that its have to offer . Bless you
    And thx you Ubisoft for the creed serie

  • I really loved odyssey tbh. I’m not a big red dead fan but ik it will take it… loved odysseys story and I’m just a huge fan of the entire Greek mythology stuff and huge open world to explore, plenty of quests, and I love how you actually have choices that can affect the game and others around you. My all time favorite assassins creed game!!

  • Red dead redemption 2 will win
