The time has come to unveil the best PS5 and PS4 games of 2023... according to readers of Push Square! As is tradition, we presented the community with a shortlist of 50 PlayStation titles near the end of last year. Readers were asked to vote for up to five of their favourites.

We used a weighted voting system to ensure a fairer round of results, with top picks earning more points — and now that everything's been tallied up, we're ready to reveal the winners.

Below are the top ten games of 2023, as voted by you. We've included the total number of votes, total points (as per the weighted voting system), and the overall vote percentage of each game.

Over 14,700 votes were cast in our poll, so thanks to everyone who took part!

Now then, without further ado...

10. Sea of Stars - 383 votes, 1032 points (2%)
9. Lies of P - 384 votes, 1,122 points (2%)
8. Dead Space - 638 votes, 1,732 points (4%)
7. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor - 864 votes, 2,410 points (5%)
6. Hogwarts Legacy - 1,179 votes, 3,504 points (8%)

5. Alan Wake 2 - 1,087 votes, 3,732 points (8%)

Alan Wake 2

Given the amount of praise that's been heaped upon Alan Wake 2 since its release, it's mad to think that this sequel was once a total pipedream due to a lack of resources. Developer Remedy has thankfully come a long way since then, and it's delivered a mind-bending psychological thriller that's evidently enraptured so many players. A lot of you had Alan Wake 2 down as your number one pick, and that's reflected in the huge number of points it accumulated in our poll.

4. Resident Evil 4 - 1,184 votes, 3,760 points (8%)

Resident Evil 2

There was hesitation surrounding this remake when it was first announced. Yes, Capcom had done an amazing job of rebuilding Resident Evil 2 and 3, but Resident Evil 4 is like the godfather of modern action games. This revival had to be special, and boy did Capcom crush it. This is about as perfect as remakes get, and in a year that's given us an embarrassment of new games, it means Resident Evil 4 is somehow back in the spotlight. Again. Again, again. We're already looking forward to the PS6 remaster, and the PS8 remake of this remake.

3. Final Fantasy 16 - 1,320 votes, 4,437 points (10%)

Final Fantasy 16

We're starting to think Final Fantasy might be back. Final Fantasy 16 isn't your traditional command-based RPG — far, far from it — but it's clearly been a standout 2023 release, as the surprisingly large points gap between itself and Resident Evil 4 demonstrates. Featuring an emotionally charged story, endearing characters, and utterly insane boss fights, Clive's escapades are nothing if not memorable, and that's the kind of impact that'll earn you an awful lot of votes in a Game of the Year poll.

2. Baldur's Gate 3 - 1,489 votes, 6,055 points (13%)

Baldur's Gate 3

Baldur's Gate 3's got Game of the Year awards spilling out of its pointed ears, but despite earning so many first place picks from the Push Square community, this incredibly in-depth RPG didn't quite have the popularity to top the charts. But still, there's no denying how brilliant Larian's latest is. A benchmark release for the genre, and a game that'll be held aloft whenever anyone brings up the topic of player freedom, Baldur's Gate 3 is a near universally praised masterpiece.

1. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 - 1,800 votes, 6,826 points (15%)

Marvel's Spider-Man 2

Yep, the PlayStation Studios PS5 exclusive wins community Game of the Year on the PlayStation fan website! Who saw that one coming? No but seriously, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 managed to rack up a massive number of votes and points, putting it in pole position by some distance. This is a sequel that's borderline impossible to fault; the very definition of a crowd pleaser, but also an excellently crafted open world adventure. It's got to be up there amongst the greatest superhero games ever made, and that's why it's the Push Square readers' Game of the Year 2023.

What do you make of the Push Square community's top ten? Is it what you would have gone for? Are there any games that you think missed out? You only have yourselves to blame in the comments section below.
