Beneath the veneer of typical urban high school life, a group of teenagers mask their mysterious alter egos, their "phantom thief" side. Who are they? Why are they dressed as such?

Having moved to Tokyo just before the start of the school year, he finds residence at a cafe run by his parents' friend, and is about to get his first taste of school life in the big city. The protagonist seems quiet and well-mannered at first glance, but gives a completely different impression once he has donned his "phantom thief" guise. What is the motivation of his alter ego? Arsene is the protagonist's initial Persona, characterized by a mask-like face and a pair of huge, black wings. Some suspect an association between its name and the famous gentleman-thief, Arsene Lupin. What is the origin of this Persona, and what power does it hold?

While attending Shujin High School, the protagonist will encounter a number of individuals, each with his or her own distinctive personality and charm. School life in the city is full of surprises and interesting events! It will most definitely be a fun year for the protagonist, living as an ordinary student.

January 2017 ps4 games

The amazing games you must play this January

A screenshot from Gravity Rush 2

Outside of the world of gaming, was a bit of a write off, really, wasn’t it? Thankfully, is here, and with it a chance to wipe the slate clean – as well as a batch of fresh new games to play this January if the human populace fails to do the former. So, win win, no?

Check out the hot new games below that didn’t quite make the Christmas rush but are still very much worth your time.

ABZÛ

Games’ charming indie title, which first launched for digital download on PS4 and PC back in August, was one of the most beautiful games of , and now it’s getting a physical release on PS4, and for the first time, Xbox One. You take on the role of a diver, peacefully unravelling a mystery while ogling the coral and aquatic wildlife. Fans of games like Journey, Firewatch or Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture will want to check this one out.

Release: PS4, Xbox One, January

Gravity Rush 2

The best PlayStation Vita game almost nobody played, Gravity Rush, is back with a fully-fledged sequel for you to play on the big screen. Much like the original, and as the title implies, the cult classic PS4 sequel lets you manipulate gravity, letting you move around the world in different ways – and it’s been expanded this time around, with three types of gravity to work with.

The first is just like the original game, while Lunar will let you move quicker and jump higher, while Jupiter will make you feel heavier and land more devastating attacks. The cel-shaded title looks gorgeous and expands on the original, giving you a wider world to explore, more bad guys to beat, three times as many missions to complete and a game map that’s over two and a half times bigger. Pick this up to help you get over the January blues.

Release: PS4, January 20

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard

A screenshot from Resident Evil VII: Biohazard

Resident Evil is back, and Capcom are taking their survival-horror pioneer back to basics with the latest in the series – an all-new entry that takes place entirely in first-person, a first for the mainline franchise. Capcom look to have learned from Resident Evil 6, which was known for its frantic, rollercoaster-esque flamboyance and Gears of War-style gameplay, as VII looks to be a lot slower and way more focused on providing you with straight-up survival horror thrills. You’ll still have plenty of weapons at your disposal though, and of course, all the usual Resident Evil trimmings, including puzzle-solving, healing herbs and juggling a convoluted inventory. PlayStation VR headset owners are also in for a scary treat too, as you’ll be able to play the whole campaign with the game strapped to your face – here’s hoping you’ve got the stomach for it.

Release: PS4, Xbox One, PC, January 27

Tales of Berseria

Bandai-Namco’s long running JRPG series hasn’t really hit the highs of early Tales instalments in recent years. Tales of Xilia was a blast, sure, but did you try Tales of Zestiria? It looked and played like a PS2 game. With any luck, Berseria will be a return to form, with the fast-paced combo fighting you’d expect of a brawler rather than a roleplaying game, as well as an OTT plot, probably about souls or magic or something. We’re not going to lie: the odds of this being anywhere as frenetic and enjoyable as Final Fantasy XV are quite low, but if you’ve somehow managed to work your way through Square Enix’ epic JRPG, another solid adventure with realtime combat and super spiky hair awaits here.

Release: PS4 and PC, January 27

Yakuza 0

A screenshot from Yakuza 0

Hardcore Sega fans have been spent a decade calling for the publisher to just do two things already instead of endlessly rebooting Sonic: let Yu Suzuki make Shenmue 3, and release its amazing open-world gangster saga, Yakuza, in the West. Finally, it’s doing both. Sort of. Yakuza 0 is a prequel to the series, set in the late '80s and stories two of the main characters’ rise to power. If you’re new to the series – which hasn’t seen a Western release in a decade – the game plays a little bit like a bit like Shenmue, except that instead of wandering around asking where all the sailors are at, you get to shake local businesses down as you build your crime empire.

Unfortunately, Western fans are only getting Yakuza 0 in – only Japanese players will get to enjoy the newly released Yakuza 6, which features cult Japanese movie star and TV personality Beat Takeshi literally throwing a baby.

Release: PS4, January 24

Kingdom Hearts HD Final Chapter Prologue

The wait for Kingdom Hearts 3 continues. As we’re checking our calendars for the umpteenth time for the next main entry in the Disney/Square Enix crossover series to appear – which looks to be a longer wait than the decade for Final Fantasy XV – Kingdom Hearts HD Final Chapter Prologue (yes, that really is the title) hits the shelves in January, compiling three games in the franchise for your PS4 in high-definition, helping to ease the wait a little bit.

Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD is a high-def remaster of Dream Drop Distance, essentially remaking the 3DS game from the ground-up for PS4, while Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage is a new, short episode taking place after the events of the original Birth by Sleep and links in with the upcoming KH3, using tech from the upcoming game. Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, on the other hand, is a one-hour cinematic that focuses on events unseen in the original game, all to help dive deeper into the franchise’s lore. There’s lots here for dedicated fans of the franchise, while the full remake of Dream Drop Distance looks to be well worth the price of entry alone.

Release: PS4, January 24

Digimon World: Next Order

Often looked down on as Pokémon’s poor, younger brother, Digimon has still been going strong over the years, with new animated entries broadcast on TV and fans are still shouting out about the franchise – even petitioning for more of the games to be released in the west. It looks like Bandai Namco has been listening closely to those devoted fans of the series, as Digimon World: Next Order is the next title in the series to release. Originally released in Japan solely on the PS Vita, Bandai Namco is launching Next Order internationally on the PS4, letting you get your tiny critter RPG fix on your living room TV.

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Game (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

You’ll notice a distinct theme this year. Horizon Zero Dawn swept the polls, earning more votes than its closest competitor by more than Epic’s Fortnite earned the most write-in votes, but not enough to crack the top four.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Game (Gold)

Call of Duty WWII

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Game (Silver)

Assassin&#;s Creed Origins

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Game (Bronze)

Persona 5

Honorable Mentions: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Nier: Automata, Resident Evil 7


Editors&#; Choice

Nier: Automata. Through all of , I pretended it was going to be tough to choose my final GotY pick as megaton after megaton dropped. But it&#;s Nier. It was always Nier. No game can make me cry over sexy robots fighting a proxy war on an abandoned far-future Earth the way Nier Automata can.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Persona 5. Persona 5 threads an oddly specific gaming needle and stands as one of the most invigorating and interesting releases of the year. I was equally invested in the outlandish and increasingly elaborate Persona and boss battles as I was making new friends and finding my place as a school boy in Tokyo.

— Kristen Titus // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn. A big-budget blockbuster done right. Guerrilla’s post-post apocalyptic vision is compelling enough, but the superior visuals, ferocious combat, and surprising plot twists inject fresh life into the action-RPG genre.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy pulls off an impressive feat: it manages to deliver some of the best writing, performances, and action moments from a franchise already overflowing with them, while at same time shaking up the Uncharted formula in thrilling, open-ended ways. It was one of the best experiences I&#;ve had this year, and might just be my favorite Uncharted game.

— Zac Minor // SIEA Social Media

What Remains of Edith Finch. In a year of amazing game stories, Edith Finch stands out for being a powerful narrative that is only possible in games. Each mini-story told within the game is accompanied by a unique art and gameplay style that build towards a profound emotional experience.

— Andy Yen // SIEA PS Store

Resident Evil 7
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS VR Experience (Platinum)

Resident Evil 7: biohazard

Another blowout in the polls, this time for Capcom’s survival-horror revival Resident Evil 7, though Skyrim put up a muscular defense. Rec Room stood out for write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS VR Experience (Gold)

Skyrim VR

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS VR Experience (Silver)

Gran Turismo Sport

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS VR Experience (Bronze)

Superhot VR

Honorable Mentions: Doom VFR, Farpoint, Star Trek: Bridge Crew


Editors&#; Choice

Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Capcom gives a master class in how to reboot a classic series. The first-person perspective adds a terrifying new layer to the survival-horror gameplay, and the PS VR support is second-to-none.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Superhot VR. The game where time moves when you move is magnitudes better in the world of VR where the PlayStation Move controllers can track your entire body’s movements. It’s the closest you’ll get in real life to bullet dodging in The Matrix without needing to do an apocalypse rave before.

— Andy Yen // SIEA PS Store

Gnog. Ko-op&#;s virtual reality toybox made me feel like a kid again. Pushing, pulling, turning and tweaking knobs, bells and whistles has never felt so rewarding.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Independent Game (Platinum)

Hellblade: Senua&#;s Sacrifice

Voters again had a clear favorite, with Ninja Theory’s well-regarded Hellblade earning the nod. Epic’s Fortnite led the field in write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Independent Game (Gold)

Undertale

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Independent Game (Silver)

Superhot

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Independent Game (Bronze)

Everything

Honorable Mentions: What Remains of Edith Finch, Night in the Woods, Pyre


Editors&#; Choice

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. One of the best psychological horror games I’ve ever played &#; Hellblade was an amazing journey as an 8th century human suffering from psychosis. The threat of permanent death via save deletion made every combat encounter a thrilling sweaty palms affair.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Undertale. Okay, I get it. Now that I&#;ve finally played Undertale (multiple times), I understand why its fanbase is so&#; vocal. Toby Fox&#;s heart-warming/wrenching underground RPG marries fresh gameplay ideas with tack-sharp writing, unforgettable characters, and one of gaming&#;s most toe-tapping soundtracks. This one is going to stay with me.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

What Remains of Edith Finch. Giant Sparrow’s journey through a cursed family’s history takes you from the highest whimsical highs to some delicately devastating lows, all with a flourish of magic-realism that swept me away.

— Kristen Titus // SIEA Social Media

Superhot. Like being caught inside the world’s best r/nosleep story. The gameplay gimmick is inspired, the pacing alternately exhilarating and exasperating, and the mood ice cold. Even the war3z-styled Easter eggs go above and beyond. One of the year’s very best.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Undertale
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS Vita Game (Platinum)

Undertale

No surprises — Undertale dominated on PS Vita, scoring the lion’s share of votes. Steamworld Dig 2 took top write-in honors.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS Vita Game (Gold)

Danganronpa V3

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS Vita Game (Silver)

Xenon Valkyrie +

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS Vita Game (Bronze)

Ys Origin

Honorable Mentions: Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, A Rose in the Twilight, Tokyo Xanadu


Editors&#; Choice

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. Games about high school murder mysteries don’t come along every day, especially with the twists and turns of the Danganronpa series. Perfect for on the go play, V3 even has cross-save capability when you finally get home to your PS4.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Undertale. Undertale is a perfect &#;multiple playthrough&#; game — I got halfway through my second run in a coffee shop! Protip: If you&#;re playing this one on the go, make sure you have headphones.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Performance (Platinum)

Ashly Burch
Aloy, Horizon Zero Dawn

An array of excellent performances this year, with Ashly Burch’s Aloy landing the coveted Platinum pick. On the write-in front, Nathan Fillion’s Cayde-6 from Destiny 2 saw significant attention.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Performance (Gold)

Claudia Black
Chloe, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Performance (Silver)

Melina Juergens
Senua, Hellblade: Senua&#;s Sacrifice

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Performance (Bronze)

Janina Gavankar
Iden Versio, Star Wars Battlefront II

Honorable Mentions: Laura Bailey // Nadine, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy; Kira Buckland // 2B, Nier: Automata; Brian Bloom // BJ Blazcowicz, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus


Editors&#; Choice

Melina Juergens for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice. A quest through the Norse underworld was never going to look easy, but Melina Jeurgens’ excruciatingly raw performance highlights Senua’s paranoia, pain and determination with perfect clarity.

— Kristen Titus // SIEA Social Media

Ashly Burch for Horizon Zero Dawn. It’s hard to believe Aloy was just introduced to us fully in , as she already feels like an iconic character in games. Chronicling her journey from a young girl to stoic heroine, Ashly’s performance in Horizon Zero Dawn was unforgettable.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Nyasha Hatendi for Mass Effect Andromeda. Bioware’s latest introduced Angarian resistance fighter Jaal Ama Darav, and he’s a memorable addition to the Mass Effect pantheon. Nyasha Hatendi’s portrayal is warm and wistful &#; a perfect fit for this enigmatic character.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Art Direction (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

Another big win for Guerrilla Games, with Horizon Zero Dawn soaring out ahead of the competition nearly Star Wars Battlefront II scored the most write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Art Direction (Gold)

Persona 5

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Art Direction (Silver)

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Art Direction (Bronze)

Destiny 2

Honorable Mentions: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Hellblade: Senua&#;s Sacrifice, Gravity Rush 2


Editors&#; Choice

Persona 5. That dynamic battle UI. The bonkers boss battle reveals. Those stylish Palace-crawling costumes. And of course, your talking cat companion turning into a van. Persona 5 truly had a vision and executed it with flair.

— Kristen Titus // SIEA Social Media

Superhot. Sometimes less is more. Superhot’s ersatz environments and faceless, crystalline enemies radiate creepypasta levels of uneasiness.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Destiny 2. When it comes to epic, galaxy-building design, few come close to Bungie’s talents. From varied world settings, to unforgettable set pieces, Destiny 2 is breathtaking to look at and play in. Not to mention that sweet sweet exotic gear design.

— Andy Yen //SIEA Store

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Soundtrack (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

A squeaker, with Horizon edging out Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and Destiny 2 for top honors. FIFA 18 netted the most write-ins.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Soundtrack (Gold)

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Soundtrack (Silver)

Destiny 2

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Soundtrack (Bronze)

Nier: Automata

Honorable Mentions: Persona 5, Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, Sonic Mania


Editors&#; Choice

Persona 5. I always let the opening sequence play all the way through&#; and sometimes waited to let it play through a second time. This game’s range of kinetic to ambient jazz was the perfect backdrop for being a Phantom Thief.

Nier: Automata. The unexpected, eclectic nature of Nier: Automata&#;s story is matched only by its score: sweeping orchestral set pieces give way to charming children&#;s choruses and chiptune arrangements, but somehow, no song ever feels out of place.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Undertale. Epic sounding chiptunes that will make you both nostalgic for yesteryear and pumped up for battle. It’s rare that a game has instantly recognizable character themes, and Undertale’s are unforgettable.

— Andy Yen // /SIEA Store

Prey. After the breakout success of his DOOM soundtrack in , composer Mick Gordon scored TWO huge games in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Prey. Both sounded exceptional, but the blend of cyberpunk-electronic beats with classic horror ambience made Prey my favorite soundtrack of the year.

Call of Duty: WWII
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Multiplayer (Platinum)

Call of Duty WWII

Call of Duty ultimately overcame Fortnite in this hard-fought deathmatch, with Friday the 13th cleaning up in write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Multiplayer (Gold)

Fortnite

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Multiplayer (Silver)

Destiny 2

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Multiplayer (Bronze)

Star Wars Battlefront II

Honorable Mentions: Injustice 2, Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, Tekken 7


Editors&#; Choice

Destiny 2. The ultimate game for both PVE and PVP in a single package. No other shooter does 6-player co-op quite like Destiny’s raids while also including pro-caliber competitive play in the same sandbox.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Call of Duty WWII. A true return to form for the classic shooter. Sledgehammer wasn’t asleep at the switch: War mode, Nazi Zombies, Divisions, and Headquarters all brought fresh new ideas to the most polished multiplayer shooter on the market.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood. The arrival of the Stormblood expansion brought a beautifully crafted story, a refined combat system, and more exquisite music to the Final Fantasy XIV experience. But this is still an MMO, and running through dungeons to face towering boss battles with friends remains one of the game&#;s principle delights.

— Ryan Clements // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Story (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

Another commanding win for Horizon, with Uncharted: The Lost Legacy mustering a fierce defense. Among write-in votes, Destiny 2 led the pack.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Story (Gold)

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Story (Silver)

Persona 5

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Story (Bronze)

Nier: Automata

Honorable Mentions: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, The Evil Within 2, Injustice 2


Editors&#; Choice

The Evil Within II. Tango Gameworks surprised me. The setup is interesting enough, but the escalating stakes combined with several memorable characters and boss fights elevate this to must-play status, whether you played the first game or not.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Nier: Automata. What begins as an almost generic Japanese sci-fi tale becomes one of the most profound stories I’ve ever experienced. As you experience plot points from other perspectives, the onion layers peel back, and you’re contemplating what it truly means to be human.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Horizon Zero Dawn. Horizon Zero Dawn had me hooked from the moment Rost raised little baby Aloy to the sun, but unravelling the mysteries of both Aloy and the Earth’s past was extremely satisfying thanks to the well written characters and intricately fascinating lore.

— Kristen Titus // SIEA Social Media

FIFA 18
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Sports Game (Platinum)

FIFA 18

FIFA 18 managed to head off an aggressive offense from a resurgent GT Sport to cement the lead. Interestingly, Pro Evolution Soccer 18 led handily among write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Sports Game (Gold)

Gran Turismo Sport

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Sports Game (Silver)

NBA 2K18

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Sports Game (Bronze)

Madden NFL 18

Honorable Mentions: Everybody&#;s Golf, Disc Jam, MLB The Show 17


Editors&#; Choice

Madden 18. I’m an on again off again Madden player, so I’m not as hardcore into Ultimate Team and the competitive angle as some, but as a casual, I really enjoyed the meaty new “Longshot” single-player story mode that was added this year. Mixing “Friday Night Lights” (with some actors from the TV show even!) with Life Is Strange and Madden gameplay is a formula that works surprisingly well.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Everybody&#;s Golf. It may go by a new name, but the spirit of Hot Shots lives on. Few games manage to balance instant accessibility with the idea of &#;I could have done that better&#; let me try it again&#; the way this series does, and Everybody&#;s Golf brings that &#; and so much more &#; to PS4.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Everybody&#;s Golf. As a Hot Shots fan from waaaay back, Everybody&#;s Golf is nothing short of a miracle. It&#;s everything I loved about classic Hot Shots gameplay, but packed to the gills with an absolutely insane amount of bonus activities &#; driving! fishing! Shuhei! &#; not to mention the unique open-course multiplayer. The art style is charming, the music is joyful, and the course design harkens to a utopia that only exists in my dreams. My Everybody&#;s Golf persona is the man I aspire to be.

— Zac Minor // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Post-Release Content (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

A nail biter, with Horizon squeaking past GTA Online by only one percentage point and Battlefield 1 leading among write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Post-Release Content (Gold)

Grand Theft Auto Online

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Post-Release Content (Silver)

Final Fantasy XV

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Post-Release Content (Bronze)

Overwatch

Honorable Mentions: Fortnite, Rainbow Six Siege, Resident Evil 7: biohazard


Editors&#; Choice

Darkest Dungeon. Surprise, surprise. The Crimson Court expansion is a literal gamechanger, with new mechanics that ripple through content both old and new. Just when I thought I was out&#;

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Final Fantasy XIV. FFXIV&#;s Stormblood expansion introduced revamped gameplay elements, new jobs to master, an entire soundtrack&#;s worth of excellent new music, and numerous quality-of-life upgrades, but where it really impressed me is with its story — easily the ever-growing MMO&#;s best yet.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds. A meaty addition to the world of Horizon, The Frozen Wilds organically adds a huge area for Aloy to explore whether you’ve finished the game already or not. The new characters and story missions are as in depth and lovingly crafted as they were in the original game.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. Okay, technically this is a standalone experience and thus not &#;post-release content,” but whatever (sorry Justin). (Editor&#;s note: I&#;ll allow it. -JM) Dishonored: Death of the Outsider needs some much-deserved praise. The focused scope and mechanical tweaks resulted in a Dishonored experience that encouraged playstyles that felt exciting and fresh, even to a Dishonored vet like myself.

— Zac Minor // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PlayStation Console Exclusive (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

Another big win for Guerrilla Games, though Uncharted and Crash managed strong support.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PlayStation Console Exclusive (Gold)

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PlayStation Console Exclusive (Silver)

Crash Bandicoot: The N-Sane Trilogy

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PlayStation Console Exclusive (Bronze)

Persona 5

Honorable Mentions: Nier Automata, Gran Turismo Sport, Hellblade: Senua&#;s Sacrifice


Editors&#; Choice

Horizon Zero Dawn. A perfect example of a platform-selling blockbuster, Horizon excels across the board with astonishing visuals, superior PS4 Pro features, and unique combat you can’t find anywhere else.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Persona 5. Persona 5 is not a short game, but its length shouldn’t put you off from experiencing its unique brand of style, storytelling, and relationship building. By the end of it you’ll feel like a high schooler again, with a new group of best friends forged through shared experience.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Nier Automata. Big surprise, I know. Nier Automata is a game that&#;s going to be with me for a long time, for lots of reasons. Its DualShock 4 control layout was part of the fun, too &#; I found myself shifting into &#;Combat Mode&#; (basically just shifting my middle fingers up to R2 and L2 so I could keep R1 held down with my index finger) every time I came across a formidable enemy.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Uncharted 10th Anniversary Theme
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Theme (Platinum)

Uncharted 10th Anniversary Theme

Uncharted dominated this category handily, with Horizon leading among write-in votes.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Theme (Gold)

Persona 5 Character Themes

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Theme (Silver)

Legacy Dashboard Theme

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best PS4 Theme (Bronze)

Undertale Dynamic Theme (Ruins)

Honorable Mentions: Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 Preorder Theme, Pyre Theme, Burger Love Returns Dynamic Theme


Editors&#; Choice

Legacy. I’m usually not one for nostalgia plays, but man, this dynamic, 3D theme recreating the old PS2 system screen is an awesome trip down memory line.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Rez Infinite Singularity Theme. Rez Infinite is pretty much a religious experience in PlayStation VR, especially Area X &#; the new area added for the Infinite release. This theme brings the feeling of Area X&#;s final section to your PS4 dashboard, and I don&#;t plan to change it anytime soon.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Horizon Zero Dawn
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Use of PS4 Pro (Platinum)

Horizon Zero Dawn

Despite tight competition, Horizon racked up another win. Star Wars Battlefront II was the leader among write-in voters.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Use of PS4 Pro (Gold)

Assassin&#;s Creed Origins

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Use of PS4 Pro (Silver)

Call of Duty WWII

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Best Use of PS4 Pro (Bronze)

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt

Honorable Mentions: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Gran Turismo Sport, Destiny 2


Editors&#; Choice

Horizon Zero Dawn. Guerrilla’s technical excellence is on proud display here. The 4K output looks razor sharp, while the HDR features make color and vibrancy pop. Love that you can emphasize resolution or performance now, too. Developers: this is how you do it!

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice. Senua’s descent into madness is best experienced in 4K with a pair of the Platinum Wireless Headset. The game looks absolutely jaw-dropping in 4K resolution, but the 3D positional audio mix steals the show here, making you feel like you’re hearing the same voices in her head.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Nioh. Nioh&#;s exhilarating combat made for one of the best action games of , but its use of PS4 Pro brought quality-of-life improvements that elevated it to another level. For coming out so early in , Nioh established one of my favorite implementations of the Pro&#;s added horsepower: allowing the gamer to choose between modes that prioritized frame-rate or resolution.

— Zac Minor // SIEA Social Media

God of War for PS4
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS4 Title (Platinum)

God of War

A tight competitive field here, but God of War lands the Platinum nod. Dragon Ball FighterZ saw the most write-in votes. You don’t have long to wait, folks!


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS4 Title (Gold)

Red Dead Redemption 2

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS4 Title (Silver)

Marvel&#;s Spider-Man

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS4 Title (Bronze)

Far Cry 5

Honorable Mentions: Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Death Stranding


Editors&#; Choice

Shadow of the Colossus. I’m fascinated by Bluepoint’s work here; they’ve enhanced this classic to the point where it can hang with ’s elite crop of AAA titles. The game is almost too gorgeous to believe.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

God of War. Kratos&#;s new odyssey on PS4 is poised to be my first can&#;t miss game of &#; I can&#;t wait to see where venturing into the world of Norse mythology takes the series. We all know the game will deliver the goods on the action front, but I&#;m personally looking forward to seeing where his story goes in his grizzled years as a father.

— Andy Yen // SIEA Store

Marvel&#;s Spider-Man. I&#;ve been a Spider-Fan for as long as I can remember, and everything we&#;ve seen on Peter Parker&#;s upcoming PS4 outing indicates that Insomniac is the perfect studio to realize the potential of the character.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Legendary heroes and villains meet on a battlefield unbound by space and time. A true embodiment of light versus darkness. You will be hard-pressed to find a more dedicated fan of the Dissidia series than me, and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT continues the RPG fighting tradition with a gorgeous visual overhaul. January 30 can&#;t come soon enough.

— Ryan Clements // SIEA Social Media

Rick and Morty - Virtual Rick-ality
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS VR Title (Platinum)

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality

An easy win for Rick and Morty, though Ace Combat 7 saw extensive write-in excitement.


PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS VR Title (Gold)

Blood &#; Truth

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS VR Title (Silver)

Star Child

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Most Anticipated PS VR Title (Bronze)

Firewall Zero Hour

Honorable Mentions: Golem, Moss, The Inpatient


Editors&#; Choice

Moss. Based on what I&#;ve played of Polyarc&#;s tiny, huge VR adventure, it strikes a perfect balance of old-school platforming action and an immersive virtual reality wow-factor. Plus, Quill is the cutest lil&#; hero I&#;ve seen in years. Gimme!

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

The Inpatient. Part of what made Until Dawn so tantalizingly creepy were the sequences taking part in an old abandoned asylum. Now you’re telling me I get to play a fully-realized prequel set in that very asylum, and in VR? Sign me up.

— Kristen Titus // SIEA Social Media

Firewall Zero Hour. A no-brainer. This back-to-basics 4v4 FPS is an electrifying VR experience, especially when paired with the PS VR Aim Controller. It will appeal hugely to fans of Rainbow Six and the old SWAT games.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Blood &#; Truth. I&#;ll never forget The London Heist: it was the very first PS VR demo I tried, and still stands up as one of the most immersive and action-packed PS VR experiences out there. Blood &#; Truth takes the fundamentals they explored in that demo and fleshes them out into a full-length game, and I could not be more excited.

— Zac Minor // SIEA Social Media

Guerrilla Games
PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Studio of the Year (Platinum)

Sledgehammer Games

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Studio of the Year (Silver)

Capcom

PlayStation Blog Game of the Year - Studio of the Year (Bronze)

PlatinumGames

Honorable Mentions: Atlus, Ninja Theory, Arkane Studios


Editors&#; Choice

Guerrilla Games. I’ve never seen an established studio pivot so radically, or so successfully. Horizon feels like the beginning of an entirely new chapter for the veteran studio.

— Sid Shuman // SIEA Social Media

Supergiant Games. This small, San Francisco-based studio exudes pure heart in their work in a way no other developer does. Pyre, their newest, is the culmination of the studio&#;s expertise thus far, marrying music, story, and visuals with a truly unique approach to gameplay. If you&#;re not familiar with Supergiant yet, you should be.

— Justin Massongill // SIEA Social Media

Square Enix. Our colleagues at Square Enix made a tremendous impact last year. Not only did they publish the riveting and critically acclaimed Nier: Automata, but the team behind Final Fantasy XIV continues to define world-class MMO development. The launch of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood thrust the game in a new direction, with awe-inspiring villains and an overhaul of the combat system. Spectacular.
