It's that time of the year when Sony acknowledge the best performing titles on PlayStation, be they indie gems, VR standouts, best-sellers or simply chosen by PlayStation owners to best represent their beloved platform. So, a lot.

We won't be mentioning the games in Sony's order, because we strongly feel that it's worth mentioning PlayStation's 25th Anniversary Special Awards first, because many games in this category helped shape the console through the years. 

These are Ridge Racer, Toshinden Battle Arena, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, Dynasty Warriors 3, Yakuza and Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G. By the way, you can check out the 25th Anniversary not from Sony's CEO Jim Ryan

In terms of PSN best-sellers, it seems no awards ceremony is complete without Fortnite, although FIFA 19 obviously isn't a slouch either. Interestingly, Sony also listed Iceborne, Capcom's expansion for Monster Hunter: World. 

Building PlayStation's VR business means drumming up excitement with quality gaming, and the ones that pulled this off the best are Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown and Beat Saber. 

Sony mentioned a lovely indie lineup as well, noting that they contributed to the variety of PlayStation's catalogue. These are Unravel Two, Hollow Knight, Overcooked 2, Human Fall Flat and Hardcore Mecha.

Also mentioned were games that sold upwards of 500,000 and 1 million copies, with the latter category holding Marvel's Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, God of War and NieR: Automata.

Many of these found themselves in the User's Choice Awards, with the addition of The Last of Us Remastered, Persona 5, Dragon Quest XI and God of War.
