Congratulations, Naughty Dog! In a decisive victory, The Last of Us Part II was voted June’s best new game by PlayStation.Blog readers. Ellie’s journey struck a chord with players, resulting in critical acclaim, praise for its exhaustive list of accessibility options — and lots of incredible Photo Mode shots.
What are your predictions for July’s Players’ Choice winner?
Hello! It’s the beginning of July, which means it’s time to look back at the best games of June.
Polls will open as you’re reading this, and we’ll keep them up until Sunday night. Next week, we’ll tally the votes and reveal the winner as an update to this post.
So get in there, help decide the best new game of June 2020, and let us know how you voted in the comments. See you next week!
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.
