Death Stranding GOTY

The US PlayStation Blog has just revealed the winners of its Game of the Year categories for the year of 2019, and as you'd expect, Death Stranding has claimed the top spot in a large number of them. With nearly one million votes counted in total, the game won six different awards.

Hideo Kojima's latest masterpiece came in first place for Best Narrative, Best Graphical Showcase, Best Soundtrack, Best PlayStation Console Exclusive, Best Performance thanks to the work of Norman Reedus, and the all-important Best PS4 Game award. Therefore, Death Stranding is the PlayStation Blog's Game of the Year. Kojima Productions itself even won the award for Studio of the Year -- PS4 fans have quite clearly fallen in love with the bizarre experience.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice scooped up the awards for Best Art Direction and Best Action Game, Kingdom Hearts III was voted the Best RPG, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare found itself top of the list for the Best Multiplayer category. Rather strangely, A Plague Tale: Innocence was voted the Best Independent Game despite not actually being an indie title. We'll leave you lot to work that one out.

Push Square's own Game of the Year deliberations are just around the corner, but in the meantime, what do you make of the PlayStation Blog's winners? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
