Players’ Choice: Evil Dead: The Game voted May 2022’s best new game

Tough to argue with a man who has a chainsaw for an arm

Klaatu… barada… uh… *coughs*

Evil Dead: The Game is your Players’ Choice winner for May 2022! Fans showed up for other new releases though, with Unpacking, Sniper Elite 5, Salt and Sacrifice, and Trek to Yomi comprising the top 5.

Now then, welcome to June! Leave your predictions for this month’s winner in the comments, and I’ll see you in a few weeks.


Ahoy there! With June ahead of us, let’s take a look back at the biggest new releases of May 2022. It was a good month for high profile indies and other anticipated titles, featuring the likes of Salt and Sacrifice, Unpacking, Evil Dead: The Game, Trek to Yomi, and Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong.

Get your vote in before we close the polls Sunday night, then check this post again next week to find out which game claimed the Players’ Choice crown for May.


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.

  • Salt & Sacrifice Baby!

    • iamtylerdurden1

      I voted salt on sacrifice as it is still the best 2D Soulslike in the business even if the sequel was a little disappointing.

      But I do agree the evil Dead will take it just based on the popularity of the IP. I think evil Dead, Sniper Elite, and Trek to Yomi will be one, Two, three.

      Can we pack up Unpacking and just relax on that game. The clown show himself David Jaffe had it as his game of the year a couple years ago I don’t understand the hyperbole.

      Trek to Yomi was fun but repetitive and flawed. The combat just made me want to play Ghost of Tsushima because it was so average. Great atmosphere though.

      At this point I can’t get excited about Sniper Elite V it’s literally just the same exact thing. I got burnt out by 4 even though I enjoy the series.

  • Evil Dead the Game going to take it

  • Trek to Yomi, I’m a sucker for Kurosawa-esque samurai games

  • Eiyuden Chronicles Rising is getting my vote.

  • I voted for Kao the Kangaroo.

  • With the previous months being oversaturated with AAA games, it’s nice to see a month of mostly indie/smaller-scale titles have their time to shine😊

    • Agreed. I always like when we get a month where it isn’t predictable which game is going to win. May and July should both be months like that as they don’t have much for bigger releases. June will probably go to The Quarry or Sonic.

      I have 4 characters lv 25 it’s all I’ve been playing Since launch day on my days off, I even bought the ultimate collector’s edition. I play lots of games I have 32 platinum but this game is so fun and it takes up most of my time Evil dead will always be my favorite horror series!

  • I won’t be Salty if my favorite doesn’t win, just hope whichever wins knows what was Sacrificed ;)

  • voted for Unpacking❤️ 😊

  • Evil Dead the game is sexy

  • I honestly did not like any of this month’s games. I just voted for Unpacking for Its soothing.
