The Game Awards Player’s Choice Game Is Down To Five Titles, With A Clear Frontrunner

The Game Awards will air on December 10, 2020, and voting for the Player’s Choice game of the year is still open. Separate from the full nominee list, voted on by press and industry, the third and final round of the Player’s Choice vote has whittled the entries down to five games, with one a clear frontrunner.

The five titles, in order of votes right now, are as follows:

    The Last of Us Part IIGhost of TsushimaHadesDoom EternalMarvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

You can vote for your favorite right here.

It’s a very PlayStation-heavy list, except for Hades–which is also the only game of this five to get a 9/10 review from GameSpot.

At the time of writing, The Last of Us Part II has 40% of the vote, and Ghost of Tsushima has 34%. As this is a player-driven vote, games that sold well naturally have an advantage, and both games have been huge success stories. The Last of Us Part II was the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 game, and Ghost of Tsushima was the fastest-selling new PlayStation IP.

Last year’s winner was Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but Nintendo fans seem not to have mobilized this year–Animal Crossing: New Horizons bowed out after round 2. You can vote for the Player’s Choice award until December 7, at 11:59PM PT.
