Honestly, I think GTAV is game of the generation

I don't think many were certain. But for the ones who were, I'm going to go ahead and assume its because they thought it was the best game of the year.

This pretty much.

 

2013 was a great year for the battle of GOTY.

 

TLoU and GTAV deserve all the praise they've received!

GTA V won a bunch of GoTY's though, so it's not like anyone is wrong.



Current gaming platforms - Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, New 3DS, PC

It did technically win VGX which a lot of people argue is the "official" game of the year (which I think is bs)

I'd much rather see Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us duke it out than see Journey and The Walking Dead fight it out. Not really trying to hate on either of those two games but if either The Last of Us, GTAV, or Bioshock Infinite were released last year, there probably wouldn't have been as much debate over what was GOTY in 2012. x.o

yup last year the competition was pretty pitiful. Though Walking Dead was a great game for what it was.

Anyway some people probably thought GTA would win because publications on average gave Grand Theft Auto a higher score than Last of Us. So it would make sense that that means they prefer GTA. Pretty simple stuff. Then again Fallout 3 won the most GOTY awards and beat Grand Theft Auto 4 in 2008. Something about huge blockbusters is just a turn off for game of the year awards I guess. Also the fact that reviews are often by a lone person while GOTY choices are often picked by everyone collaberating.

Dont you mean 2012 o.O. Last year is 2013 :O.

But ya you are right though, GTAV, TLoU, and BI would of made people forget Journey and The Walking Dead XD.

TLOU might be the best game ever made. Gaming wasn't serious until TLOU and it will forever change the medium.



For me it was the content, the polish, the story, the characters, and most of all the fun. The last of Us is an excellent game and experience but not something I would call fun/relaxing.
