In the closest race we've ever seen in a Players' Choice poll, DMC5 narrowly edged out Sekiro to take the crown.
That’s what separated this month’s first place winner and runner-up. Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 ever-so-slightly eked out a win over FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. I’ve never seen a race this close! Meanwhile, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 and MLB The Show 19 rounded out the top four.
Thanks to everyone who voted this month! I’m sure Capcom sends their thanks, as well. To those who sat this one out: THIRTEEN VOTES!
Welcome back! Got a tough one for you this month: March saw the launch of multiple blockbuster new releases, including Devil May Cry 5, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, The Division 2, and San Diego Studio’s very own MLB The Show 19. Looking at this list, I’m not even sure which one I would vote for… so it’s a good thing I can’t!
We’ll leave the polls open until 11:59pm Pacific on Wednesday, so cast your vote before then for your favorite new game of March 2019. Then we’ll tally up the votes and reveal the winner on Friday. Good luck to each of this month’s nominees!
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.
