Game Of The Year - God of War Wins Consensus Pick - Ties BOTW!

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Game Of The Year - God of War Wins Consensus Pick - Ties BOTW!

God Of War just tied Zelda: Breath Of The Wild for 4th most awarded GOTY of all time (189 awards). Should pass it and move into sole 4th place any day now:

1 - The Witcher 3 257
2 - The Last Of Us 249
3 - Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 227
4T - Zelda: Breath of the Wild 189
4T - God of War 189
6 - Uncharted 4 165
7 - GTA V 160
8 - Dragon Age: Inquisition 134
9 - Red Dead Redemption 2 130
10T - Uncharted 2 111
10T - Red Dead Redemption 111

Although more awards were handed out this year compared to 2017 - it's a great accomplishment nonetheless as God Of War faced much stiffer competition in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Congrats to Sony Santa Monica - can't wait for the follow-up sequel!

Why is Red Dead considered stiffer competition?

Is it not tied with Super Mario Odyssey is tied with it on Metacritic at 97.

Seems to me both BotW and GoW had equal competition. But not surprising that a Playstation game would get more votes over a Nintendo game. Way more reviewers out there reviewing playstation games than nintendo games.

Higher Metacritic scores doesn't necessarily mean it's a better overall game - hence why God of War beat out Red Dead 2 this year in the consensus pick. I'm pretty sure God Of War would have beat BOTW as well had they released in the same year.



Megaton. God of War ties Zelda. Thread worthy when it beats it. I can't believe this is even happening. My favourite game of the gen.

I take back what I said about god of war ps4 deserving it over red dead 2 after beating it good game but I was underwhelmed most of the time. I'm struggling to understand what's so great about god of wars story or the one-shot camera being so great. not that I think it's a bad game but I vastly prefer god of war 3



So is the fact that more people are reviewing PS4 games than Switch games actually play into GoW's possible overtaking of BOTW's game of the year award count, or are we just speculating? I mean, it sounds like it makes sense on paper, Playstation 4 was a much bigger platform when GoW released than Switch was when BOTW released. But I don't want to believe in a fake excuse, either.



Truly amazing. And cool to see both Uncharted 2 and 4 in the Top 10 of all time. Uncharted 3 is my personal favorite but it's still pretty awesome. Go God of War!
