Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Look, there’s no question that the Nintendo Switch has brushed the PlayStation 4 aside in Japan, but Eastern developers still have a lot of love for Sony and its games. The latest issue of Famitsu magazine includes a poll voted on by 128 Japanese developers and industry professionals, and it seems like they’ve loved their PS4 this year.

While not every game listed released in 2018 – these are busy people, remember – the top ten is absolutely dominated by PlayStation titles. It’s perhaps a sign that the Japanese industry has a deep respect for Western developers, especially when you see the likes of Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War, and Red Dead Redemption 2 pushed up to the top.

Here’s the full Top 30, as reported by Twinfinite:

  1. Marvel's Spider-Man
  2. Monster Hunter: World
