Hello! I hope this new decade has treated you well thus far. We kicked off 2020 with the release of big games like Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot and Journey to the Savage Planet, but don’t sleep on smaller titles like Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition, Flat Heroes and Shadow Legend VR!
Hit the polls below to help decide January’s best new game, and make a case for your vote in the comments. We’ll keep the polls open through Sunday night, then reveal the winners next week.
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.
