This Is The PS5 Launch Game Over 60% Of Fans Are Most Excited To Play

With Playstation 5 consoles sold out all over the place (unless someone wants to fork over a thousand bucks on ebay), it's safe to say that fans are pretty excited about the latest next-gen console from Sony. Those who were lucky enough to review the PS5 before launch praised its lightning-fast loading times, quiet internal fans, and a new controller that has every critic buzzing about its new haptic feedback features.


But even more exciting are the launch games exclusive to the PS5, which range from eagerly-awaited sequels, to remakes of beloved action games, to a game where players get to explore an island of anthropomorphic food. With all of these options available, which one are players the most eager to get their hands on? To answer this question, SVG asked 752 people from all over the world in an online survey to answer which PS5 launch game they were most excited to play.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales swings to the top

Of the people who took the SVG survey, 62% of them answered that the new Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, was the game they were the most excited to play. And who can blame them? Following the success of Marvel's Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, which won multiple awards in 2019, and the Academy Award-winning Into the Spider-Verse movie, it is no wonder fans would be eager to play as the charismatic Miles Morales as he suits up for the first time. 


Far behind Spider-Man: Miles Morales in second place was Demon's Souls at 19%. That game, of course, is a complete remake of the 2009 action-RPG hit that launched the Souls series. Following at 3% was Godfall, an apocalyptic fantasy-action RPG, while foodie adventure game Bugsnax came in last at 2% of the overall vote. It looks like the superhero game managed to beat out the both fantasy RPG genre and whatever genre the critically-adored Bugsnax happens to be.

More excitement for games yet to come

Of course, there are many other highly-anticipated games that Playstation has waiting in the wings. Some user's comments expressed an interest in games released prior to the PS5 launch, as well as a few of which have yet to be released. The recently released Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War was mentioned by a few, and there were also votes for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 and Far Cry 6. One commenter made a bold claim that Bugsnax would win Game of the Year over Cyberpunk 2077, and another joked that they are eager for yet another upgraded edition of Skyrim.


A couple of comments were not so eager for new PS5 content, including a diehard Xbox fan and one gamer who opted out of titles from either major console. In spite of a couple of negative critiques, it seems that many gamers are excited to play the newest games that the PS5 has to offer.
