Sony Announces PS Blog’s 2021 Game Of The Year Winners

The polls for the PlaySta­tion Blog’s Game of the Year 2021 have been closed for some time, with the win­ners being announced on the blog site. As stat­ed in post, games were “neck and neck” for top spots dur­ing the vot­ing peri­od, with “last minute twists” chang­ing place­hold­ers right before the poll closings.

Those who went to PlaySta­tion’s blog when the polls were open were able to pick for the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: Best New Char­ac­ter, Best Sto­ry, Best Art Direc­tion, Best Sound­track, Best Mul­ti­play­er Expe­ri­ence, Best Sports Game, Best Acces­si­bil­i­ty Fea­tures, Best Use of DualSense, Best Graph­i­cal Show­case, Best Re-Release, Inde­pen­dent Game of the Year, PS VR Game of the Year, PS4 Game of the Year, PS5 Game of the Year, Stu­dio of the Year, and the Most Antic­i­pat­ed Game of 2022 and Beyond.

As you can tell from the above list, some of these are direct­ly relat­ed to Sony’s PS5 con­sole, includ­ing the use of the DualSense con­troller. Their awards are also based around the Tro­phy sys­tem, so there are tech­ni­cal­ly four win­ners per category. 

You can check out all the top-spot win­ners for the PS Blog in 2021, below:

I am a Platinum lover and an ex- Cod-aholic. I've been playing games since I was 5 years old and I refuse to quit, despite my mother's attempts to get me to. God of War and its successors are my all time favorite games.
