We’ve had numerous award-giving bodies figure out the best game of 2017, but PlayStation has yet to give out theirs.
PlayStation.Blog Game of the Year 2017
The blog site of gaming brand PlayStation is doing another year of PlayStation.Blog Game of the Year!
Here are the nominees for the Best PS4 Game:
- Assassin’s Creed Origins
- Call of Duty WWII
- Destiny 2
- Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
- Horizon Zero Dawn
- Nier: Automata
- Persona 5
- Resident Evil 7
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
- What Remains of Edith Finch
- Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
- Yakuza 0
You can also nominate a PlayStation 4 title that’s not on the list.
PlayStation.Blog’s Game of the Year also has other categories, namely Best PS VR Experience, Best Independent Game, and Best PS Vita Game.
Certain aspects of games get to be recognized with categories like Best Performance, Best Art Direction, Best Soundtrack, Best Multiplayer, and Best Story.
Other categories include Best Sports Game, Best Post-Release Content, Best PlayStation Console Exclusive, Best PS4 Theme, Best Use of PS4 Pro, Most Anticipated PS4 Title, Most Anticipated PS VR Title, and Studio of the Year.
Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze
Nominees can get a gold, silver, bronze, or platinum award for each category they’ve been nominated to.
Justin Massongill, social media manager for SIEA, emphasizes that since The Last of Us II already won a Platinum Trophy in the Most Anticipated Game last 2016, it is no longer included in the nominees.
Games that previously won Gold, Silver and Bronze Trophies get another shot at the Plat.
Upon reading in the comments section, Massongill further explains:
Part of our nomination criteria is that we won’t nominate a remaster of a game that had previously appeared on a PlayStation platform.
