PS Blog readers showed up for Guerrilla's long-awaited follow-up, but Elden Ring fans made a strong effort.
It was a fierce battle, but Guerrilla’s far-future follow-up rose to the top of the Players’ Choice poll for February 2022. Tarnished around the world didn’t go out without a fight, though — FromSoft’s exemplary open-world debut took the runner-up spot for the month. Congratulations to both teams on the well-deserved recognition!
Salutations! This is going to be a tough one — I can only fit three games in that image up top, but there have been some quality releases these past few weeks. Are you finding time to play everything you want to, or are you having to make some tough decisions?
Hit the comments and let us know what’s claiming your gamin’ time… after voting in the poll, of course.
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 Demon’s Souls 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.
