There were plenty of independent titles to choose from this time. From fresh ideas to fresher food, which game was the biggest surprise of July?
How does it work? At the end of each month, PlayStation.Blog will open a poll where you can vote for the best new game released that month. Soon after, we’ll close the polls, count your votes and announce the winner on PlayStation.Blog. PlayStation Store will also showcase some of the top Players’ Choice winners throughout the year.
What is the voting criteria? That depends on you! If you could only recommend one new release to a friend that month, what would it be? In keeping with our long tradition in the Game of the Year Awards, remastered or re-released games will not qualify. Ambitious reconstructions and larger-scale remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will do.
How are the nominees decided? The editorial teams at PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation Store will compile a list of the most notable releases for that month and use it to generate the survey. Written votes will be accepted.
