PS Blog readers were rather taken with the Phantom Thieves' new and improved outing.
Persona 5 was the best new game of March, stealing PS Blog readers’ hearts — and over 50% of their votes!
But P5R wasn’t the only popular game last month — runners up with strong support in the polls included Doom Eternal, Call of Duty: Warzone, and MLB The Show 20.
Next up, April! Any predictions?
Things are heating up! We got, just… too many great games in March, from the white-knuckle demon-slaying thrill ride that is Doom Eternal to the serene sandbox of PS VR’s Paper Beast, and with other diverse experiences like the über-stylish Persona 5 Royal, the newest entry of our very own MLB The Show franchise, and the massive, free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone.
We’ll keep the polls open until Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific, so be sure to get those votes in before then. Feel free to make a case for your pick in the comments!
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.
