PSU’s Game Of The Year 2022 Awards – Best Platformer

Best Platformer – Sonic Frontiers

You know exactly what you’re going to get with platformers, and that’s perfectly fine with us. More than often, they’re a great way of testing your pad proficiency, with pinpoint-accurate jumps and navigation providing some challenging gaming moments. This year had some solid entries, with a certain blue hedgehog recently celebrating his 30th anniversary with two new games.

And yep, it was Sonic who took the crown for Best Platformer with the open world Sonic Frontiers. Yes, it takes the series to new heights, but the Blue Blue’s platforming roots are very much still the beating heart of the experience.
