Your Winners: PlayStation.Blog E3 2017 Awards

The votes are in! Here are your reader-voted picks for Best Trailer, Most Anticipated PS4 Game, and Most Anticipated PS VR Game from E3 2017.

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

With the chaos of E3 behind us, it’s time to tally the votes and declare the winners of the show, as voted by you! As a reminder, the three categories you voted in were “Best Trailer,” “Most Anticipated PS4 Game,” and “Most Anticipated PS VR Game.” Competition was fierce in all three fields, but each saw a clear winner… and one game in particular won the day in two of the three available categories.

Without further ado… the winners!

Best Trailer
God of War
Best Trailer - Platinum
God of War

The God of War returns! It’s been a year since we first got a glimpse of Kratos’ newly bearded visage, and at this year’s Showcase we finally got a better idea of how exactly this story will play out as the team at Santa Monica Studio drops the iconic warrior into a new mythology.

Best Trailer - Gold

Marvel’s Spider-Man
Best Trailer - Silver

Monster Hunter: World
Best Trailer - Bronze

Days Gone

Most Anticipated PS4 Game
God of War
Most Anticipated PS4 Game - Platinum
God of War

Well, I can’t say I’m too surprised here. As it turns out, the final vote tallies for “Best Trailer” and “Most Anticipated PS4 Game” ended up being awfully similar! If there’s one thing we can say about you, our readers, it’s that you’re consistent.

Most Anticipated PS4 Game - Gold

Marvel’s Spider-Man
Most Anticipated PS4 Game - Silver

Monster Hunter: World
Most Anticipated PS4 Game - Bronze

Days Gone

Most Anticipated PS VR Game
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
Most Anticipated PS VR Game - Platinum
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR

The opportunity to explore Tamriel inside PlayStation VR is alluring indeed — so much so that this was the biggest landslide of all three polls we ran here. Skyrim VR very nearly pulled in as many votes as all three runners-up combined.

Most Anticipated PS VR Game - Gold

Superhot VR
Most Anticipated PS VR Game - Silver

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV
Most Anticipated PS VR Game - Bronze

The Inpatient

Editor’s Choice

I’m surprised even a single person voted for Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV lol.

    Lol it have more vote than The Inpatient

    I totally voted for it. I voted for Monster Hunter in the other categories, but that was the closest I could get in the VR category.

    Looks…. well, doesn’t look to be for me. I wish they center staged Superhot VR and Hidden Agenda, though.

    Actually FFXV Monster of the Deep was said to be very good critics who played it.

    Skyrim VR is the biggest VR game of all-time.

    Moss deserved some attention for VR.

    I would have had the Inpatient second after Skyrim. I’d take a AAA VR game and a interesting experience VR game over an indie in VR and bad VR fishing any day.

    Good choices all-around, the games just keep on coming!

That’s a lot of awards for a bunch of games that aren’t even out yet. Are you honestly for real.

    The awards are for “Best Trailer” and “Most Anticipated” so I’d be pretty surprised if a game that’s already out won. xD

    PengemuS said:

    June 29th, 9:20 am

    …they are awards for E3…so…for the games shown at E3, not the ones that are out…and…weren’t shown.

    So yeah. They’re for real.

Do a poll to see how many people want BC!

    KidGreengene said:

    June 29th, 11:32 am

    Put me down for no thanks. I would prefer name changes and absolutely prefer cross platform play. But BC… I don’t have time to play new games. Why go back to old unremastered ones?

    iamtylerdurden1 said:

    June 29th, 4:59 pm

    Way too many NEW games and awesome remasters/remakes to play old unremastered games… that i’ve already played. No thanks, after 4yrs into a generation BC is almost meaningless. Keep your BC, i still need to play Nier, The Surge, Nioh, Wipeout, AZ Sunshine, Farpoint Cryo Pack, and Crash. New > old unremastered games.

    Fuhr31 said:

    June 30th, 8:36 am

    Having BC available would not prevent anyone from playing new games or somehow affect name changes, cross platform play or any other features. Having one feature available doesnt mean there wont be other features lol.


June 29th, 9:45 am

God of War looks fantastic. Mr. Barlog will deliver this time, where GOW II fell woefully short.

So many good games coming out <3

What, no Ni No Kuni 2? That is crazy talk!

KidGreengene said:

June 29th, 11:35 am

My surprise of show was Anthem. That games looks amazing. Known game of show was God of War. It really is looking incredible and they seem to be keeping all the important things that make Kratos the GoW. I loved GoW I-III but after 3, I just felt spent. I am glad they are not trying to out rage (get it… outrage. out rage?? Is this thing on??) the original trilogy. I kinda forgot why I was still so angry.

    Welmosca said:

    June 29th, 11:48 pm

    Really?…you got surprised with that fake gameplay?…then you’ll be even more surprised when they show the real game lol.

In 12 months….Sid: “Guys, I discovered this great new game called Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.”
Ryan: *facepalm*

If only the DBZ trailer was a psn trailer officially even though we know it’s multiplatform. DBZ is my game of the year. That game is absolutely stunning. God of war is a close second

furamuuru said:

I’m glad Monster Hunter scored silvers, and Clements voted for Dissidia NT as his Editor’s Choice. Good stuff! Can’t wait ’til those two are out.

no love for Kingdom Hearts III

    webhead19 said:

    June 30th, 9:21 am

    Well technically it wasn’t at E3 at all. It just had a trailer debut at an event happening right before the week of E3.

Doflamingo567 said:

June 29th, 4:48 pm

Shadow of the Colossus was my most hyped regardless if it’s just a remake or not.

DaLotus said:

June 29th, 5:49 pm

I am over joyed to see Monster Hunter getting the recognition it always desired.

Welmosca said:

June 29th, 11:56 pm

Yeah GoW had the best trailer by far and most anticipated for me is Spidey.Now ha baffled by people excited with skyrim VR…its unbelievable ha.

PS:Can’t believe Malik is working on the Blog…damn he sure went up after that glorious UC2 GOTY music video.When I saw him on the Day’s Gone interview I was like “what?”…lol nice.

    cusman said:

    Well a lot of people that don’t have PSVR or even plan to get PSVR got to vote, so they would vote for a game they know and love over some upcoming games they don’t understand.

    I voted for The Inpatient which is from developers of Until Dawn. These developers did great with Until Dawn, and also did great with the PSVR Until Dawn Rush of Blood game. I am also excited for Skyrim on PSVR, but I am more interested in the new game over the game I have already played a great many hours.

Red Dead Redemption 2 ? Elex ? Skull and Bones ? … GOW4 has the best trailer but Skull & Bones , Red Dead Redemption 2 and Elex are more anticipated than Amazing Spiderman or so i think .

    AizawaYuuichi said:

    June 30th, 5:58 pm

    Except none of those games were showcased “BY” Sony at E3. This is the Playstation.Blog, not “CurrentGames.Blog”. This vote was just for games that were on Sony’s stage at E3, essentially. People could have written those games into the wildcard option, but obviously none of them got enough votes to be in the top four spots.

Days Gone easily won it for me (by a long shot). Open world realistic zombie game? Sold! God of war looked great and so did Detroit, and Spiderman was beyond insane. Monster hunter looked really really average to me, no idea how that got any votes.

Welp. That all she wrote that everyone was interested in their games (and not me). So, #NOTMYPLAYSTATIONE3 or #NOTMYSONYE3.
