While it may have not been the favorite in that roster ahead of the voting, Ghost of Tsushima's win isn't really that surprising, though. The game already sold five million units as of last month, making it the best new first-party IP launched by Sony Interactive Entertainment during the PlayStation 4 era. In our review, we rated the game nine out of ten, summarizing our experience with Ghost of Tsushima in the following words.
Ghost of Tsushima is Sucker Punch's best game yet and a great open world title capable of measuring to some of the biggest names in the genre. The excellent rendition of feudal Japan, along with its well-written characters and story, make Ghost of Tsushima stand out as the last must-have PlayStation 4 exclusive.
It even got a sizable and free cooperative multiplayer mode called Legends, adding more replayability to what was already a meaty experience. If you haven't picked up the game for your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 yet, do yourself a favor and consider doing so.
