The controversy remains at a fever pitch and will likely remain that way for some time.

From the "multi-part" plan to that oft-discussed new gameplay trailer , the arguments seem endless. But PSXE readers remain hopeful.

Our most recent poll was very close, but the majority of participants say the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be an "absolute masterpiece." Almost as many say it'll be "great, but not as good as the original," and a good many claim it'll be nothing but a "colossal disappointment." As expected, there appear to be plenty of fans in every camp but at least, for the time being, the outlook can be considered optimistic. Are you more or less optimistic after that admittedly poorly translated update …?

Anyway, it's time to start our voting for the reader's choice for PSXE's Game of the Year. You've got 10 choices there and the top 5 will make it into the second and final round, and the title receiving the most votes at the end of that round will be the winner. So, which game gets it? One of the PS4 exclusives; Bloodborne or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture ? Or one of the massive blockbusters like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain or Fallout 4 ? Vote now!
