PS Blog readers have spoken. Returnal blasted its way to the top of the polls, securing the April Players’ Choice crown. Congrats to Housemarque! 

May has just begun, but it’s already shaping up to be an incredible month for gaming. Share what you’ve been playing in the comments below! 




April has come and gone, and with it some incredible new releases. The Players’ Choice polls are open now for you to vote on which game made the biggest impression on you last month! 

We’ll keep the polls open until Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific, so be sure to cast your vote before then. Then take to the comments to let us know why you think your pick is the one to beat. 


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.
