It was a close one, but the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts III managed to overtake Capcom’s stunning remake of Resident Evil 2 to claim top honors in our first Players’ Choice poll of the year. Meanwhile, the high-flying Ace Combat 7 soared comfortably into the third place spot to round out this month’s podium. Congratulations, Sora and friends!
Readers, have you any predictions for February’s top three? Let us know in the comments!
Alright 2019, you’ve made your point. Judging by the new games we’ve seen so far this year, it’s gonna be a good one.
We’ve already got an awfully diverse lineup with survival horror masterpiece Resident Evil 2, the long (long) awaited Kingdom Hearts III, and action flight sim Ace Combat 7, not to mention smaller hits like Futuregrind, Megalith, and Wandersong.
But enough talk… have at you! And by you, I mean the polls. Get in there.
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.
