Players’ Choice: Vote for June 2018’s Best New Game

The polls are open! Cast your vote now to help us decide the best new game of the past month.

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

It’s that time again! June 2018 has come to a close, so we now look to you, the readers of PlayStation.Blog, to help us decide what the best new game of the month was. Cast your vote below before the polls close on July 6 at 11:59pm Pacific, and we’ll reveal the winner in mid-July — along with a new batch of Editor’s Choice picks from the past three months!

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.

    When I said 8 wanted Cross Play.
    I meant I wanted the rules first established when the PS4 launched.
    PS+ wasn’t required for MMOs with monthly subscriptions and F2P games that you pay nothing to play.
    Both of them had cross play with PC.
    All people want is the ability to export their Fortnite accounts onto the Switch, for now.
    If we already had cross play in free to play games, why wouldn’t we have cross play with Switch owners?
    PC players usually have a greater advantage online as most of them are Hardwired Ethernet rather than Wi-Fi, often higher resolution and frame rate too… That puts PS4 owners at a disadvantage. Yet Paragon had cross play with PC so what gives?
    For me, AAA games that requires PS+ to play should be for PS4 owners.
    As for MMOs and F2P games, they should be open to cross play with other consoles since you didn’t play. That were the rules when the PS4 first launched so it should stay that way.
    We could cross play with Nintendo for Fortnite. In the past, some people were already playing with Xbox live users on Fortnite with PS players… Just saying.

    Yes, I get it. It’s about money and getting money from players to play online games.
    Which as a PlayStation fan I’m against PlayStation charging players to play online with friends… There should be a basic service with very basic functions and then the higher tier PS+ with more friends, more blocking, a ton more of exclusive options that basic players either don’t have access to or has less of…. But that is for another discussion.

    For games that are free to play and are suppose to be free and not charge for Fortnite, PlayStation doesn’t loose anything in terms of revenue since you already don’t need PS+ to play.

    You should, by all means, exclude other platforms that DO charge their player base to play online on games that PlayStation doesn’t charge players.

    If we, at PlayStation, don’t charge our customers to play online on certain games, then neither should the competing console.

    You can also strike the message home that PlayStation doesn’t charge PS+ subscription for Free to Play Games and MMOs and make it “In your face” to the Anti-Consumer competition platforms who do.

    Rather shocked Rainbow Skies is not included in this list for June as it just came out. It was a long long wait but worth it. Very very good game if you really liked Rainbow Moon from 5 years ago.

A different type of car game, something the Racing genre lacked was the fun factor. ONRUSH has it all!

A lot of great games this month but gotta give it to Onrush, a racing game that really separates itself from the pack! If you want something different AND addictive then I highly recommend Onrush

    Onrush by far the best in June and so far the best this year

It’s a crime against humanity to not include IKARUGA (PS4) in this list.
Just ten bucks, launched June 29. It’s right there on PSN but you’ll probably have to use the Search function to find it.
Absolutely zero advertising.

    Ikaruga isn’t really new though. Also it was one of the first things to pop up this past week for me on PS Store. Bought it when I saw it was 10 bucks.

    Vinland_Krauser said:

    July 3rd, 1:53 am

    But It is, at least on Sony consoles.

I haven’t exactly played anything brand new since Detroit, but based on the poll, I’d have to go with Unravel Two.

Any poll that doesn’t include Lumines Remastered strikes me as a half thought out poll.

Vampyr by far the best on that list, thought it’d just be a stupid vampire game but checked it out and it’s got a ton of depth and really good combat. Though granted I’m not a huge racing game fan.

I’m surprised no one here has mentioned BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. In my opinion, it was the best game released in June aside from the remaster of Dragon’s Crown.

Vampyr is so good plaese vote for it!!!

cusman said:

This poll missing Ikaruga is disappointing

My vote went to Jurassic World: Evolution because it is an unexpected game design and now that it exists, I feel like they should have been making Jurassic Park / World like this for as long people have been making other such games (Sim City, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, etc).

Really deep and satisfying for 1st game of its type of Dinosaurs Park management. I hope to see this be successful and turn into a long lasting successful series of games that continually improve on what they got going in 1st one.

Captain spirit is a game not to be missed. The Life is Strange series is a game that defines true outcomes of choices that are purely based on the consequentialism theory. If only every gamer knows about this awesome series.

NOT The Crew 2….it shouldn’t even be considered for anything since it’s completely UNFINISHED …..and should never have been released in this condition . As usual Ubisoft gets away with selling CRAP at highest prices.
