Players’ Choice: Resident Evil Village voted May 2021’s best new game

Give a hand (or two) to this month’s delightfully terrifying pick.

From escaping Lady Dimitrescu to facing off with Mother Miranda, players had a howling good time playing Resident Evil Village, voting it as Players’ Choice pick for the month of May. Congrats to Capcom! 

Summer is on the horizon, and June’s lineup of games has us excited! Let us know what summer games you’re looking forward to in the comments below.

May has come to a close, which means it’s time to open up the Players’ Choice polls and decide which new release had the most players buzzing last month. 

We’ll keep the polls open until Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific, so be sure to cast your vote before then. Want to defend your pick? Drop a comment below on why it was your favorite.

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.

  • How do you not even put Mass Effect Legendary Edition up for this? Anyway without it here it’s obviously going to be Resident Evil

  • For me is Resident Evil Village.

  • I hope playstation signs exclusivity deal for upcoming pc game, A Far Away Realm

  • When’s the press conference Sony? We know when Microsoft and Nintendo’s is.

    • Like the last 2 E3s and the one in the a week or so, Sony isn’t going to be there.

      They will very likely have their own event that will put the entire of E3 to shame yet again though, if anything like last year, will be their own thing.

  • Resident Evil Village.
    No doubt!

  • I feel like Resident Evil 8 was probably the most anticipated new release for May 2021, whereas I think Knockout City was definitely the most surprising game this month. I think it really shattered expectations and was genuinely a really great time to play. And as much as I love Biomutant, I do understand that many people had gripes with the game, and I respect it.

    Some decent looking work simulators out this month. Cooking Simulator, Tank Mechanic Simulator and Gold Rush all looks fine, Taxi Driver… not so sure.

    I didn’t play the other games but knockout city really caught my attention lol never really played a virtual dodgeball game… it was always soccer hockey basketball baseball or football when it came to virtual sports

  • RE VILLAGE (8=VIII) – Without a shadow of a doubt !!!

  • Resident evil 8 village easy win

  • For me it’s Resident Evil Village!

  • How come that you can’t vote for the actual Best Game – Mass Effect Legendary. Thats how to cheaply manipulate a vote, by not including the actual best game.

    • How about you read the post instead??????????????

      “remastered or re-released games won’t qualify.”

  • I dont get the appeal of ESO at all. I tried it. Feels like a waterdown version of skyrim. Different strokes different folks i guess.

  • I voted for Other but couldn’t enter text to specify.

    My choice being Solaris Offworld Combat for PSVR

  • I can’t wait to play the new Resident Evil. It looks awesome.

  • Speaking of new games, any reason why the Promesa is glitched in the Store? Would love to buy it, but you can’t – at least on the Canada store. I can see it, but when selected you get an error message…

  • Resident Evil Village.

  • Are you guys suprised? Resident Evil is king!

    • It didn’t exactly have any competition either. All the other games in the poll were smaller indie games.

  • I am excited about getting my Ps5 soon so I can play this together with new features of the controller.

  • 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
