Players’ Choice: The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners voted May’s best new game

Congrats to Skydance, whose virtual reality adventure set in the Walking Dead universe shambled to the top of the Players’ Choice poll for May. Open world shark sim Maneater swam into the runner-up spot, and Minecraft Dungeons rounded out the top three.

So then, predictions for June?


Welcome back! Lots to choose from in this month’s Players’ Choice poll, whether you’re venturing into the depths of Minecraft Dungeons, becoming an unstoppable action hero in John Wick Hex, reliving the gritty glory of 80’s action flicks in Huntdown, or just causing all kinds of trouble as an electricity-imbued shark in Maneater.

PS VR had a big month, too, with the launch of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, Gorn, and Pixel Ripped 1995.

Get those votes in below before Sunday at 11:59pm Pacific, and we’ll reveal the winner next week. See you then!


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.
