Resident Evil Village won PS4 Game of the Year at PlayStation Blog
Capcom’s Resident Evil Village won PS4 Game of the Year on the PlayStation Blog. It demonstrated the game’s popularity despite not winning GOTY at the Game Awards in 2021, following the events of Resident Evil 7 in 2017.
As 2021 approaches, many outlets and platforms have turned to some of the best games of the year, rewarding studios and developers for their hard work bringing new games.
While there are fewer games than expected this year due to the ongoing global pandemic, there are plenty of exciting titles coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
They include Resident Evil Village, Deathloop, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal, and more.
While the newest Resident Evil game won GOTY on Reddit this year, it was beaten on the TGA by co-op caper It Takes Two, which won GOTY at this year’s The Game Awards.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart won PS5 GOTY 2021
As the PlayStation Blog reveals, Resident Evil Village won PS4 Game of the Year 2021, along with PS5 winners GOTY, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Village beat It Takes Two, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Far Cry 6 to a win decided by a player vote.
Many players feel Resident Evil Village deserved more recognition
It’s no surprise to many to see that Capcom’s latest horror franchise has received so much appreciation from gamers.
RE Village is one of the most completed games of 2021 according to game data site HowLongToBeat. It shows that not only do users buy the game, but they are likely to see it through to completion due to its engaging story and gameplay.
Many gamers believe this game deserves more recognition during awards season. And we hope the PlayStation Blog awards will put those who want to see more awards for hit games at ease.
The Resident Evil Village fan-voted award is probably a bigger achievement than the company-defined award as it shows how much players enjoy the game.
While previous Resident Evil games have been criticized for switching from survival horror to action, many believe that Village manages to strike the right balance, similar to the style of Resident Evil 4.
Resident Evil Village DLC has been confirmed
Those hoping to learn more about the game’s Story and characters are hoping to get lucky soon because of the DLC. Resident Evil Village has been confirmed, although no details about the game or story are known at this time.
