With 2020 finally on its last legs, you can expect game of the year lists to roll out from every outlet around, but there’s a more official one now available for voting on Sony’s PlayStation Blog.

The polls are now open for the official PlayStation Blog Game of the Year, which you can vote on right here. 

17 categories are available and you can find all of them and the game nominated for each if you scroll down.

Voting will close come 13th November so you have a good amount of time to vote especially as it shouldn’t take that long to leave your choices for each.

Aside from what’s listed below each of the categories have a write in option so you can leave your own choice if it wasn’t nominated.

As with all votes of this kind there are some inconsistencies. For example, under “Best New Character” they have Miles Morales as Spider-Man. Putting aside the fact that this character has existed for many years in comics he was also in the 2019 Marvel’s Spider-Man. Little concessions like this are to be expected especially in a year like 2020 with countless game delays.

For those wondering why Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t here it’s because it’s releases just too far into 2020. It will be included in the 2021 voting.
