i understand your thoughts, good to know. Your comment is extensive - really interesting, thanks! but its a little bit sad for the developers, right? I mean for Insomniac Games in this case.

While yeah, they'd like to have more awards I don't think Insomniac developers feel sad in the slightest. Spider-Man is still by far the biggest and most successful game they've ever made. Insomniac games generally sell between 1-4m, now they've just released a game that's going to sell over 15m. Critically it's their best reviewed game since Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction from 2007. Regardless of how many GOTY awards they won, and how many they could have won if there was less competition, I think Insomniac are in a very good mood right now.

OKay, that sounds really positive ^^ then its great :)

edit: if I were a developer, I would be very happy about prizes/Game of the Year Awards *-* Or you do not care about that? @Chrkelleroh yes, 

Prizes are cute, but don't ultimately matter.  I am not a software developer, but I am a product developer.  What matters is sales, market share, operating margins, etc.  I would guess most developers don't care how many awards they win.  If their game tanks that is a problem.  Spider-man sold extremely well.  I am guessing the developers are pleased as punch.  More to the point, no I would not space out game releases intentionally to win awards that don't pay salaries and bonuses.  

i think we have a little bit different opinions, but thats interesting.

i see.. the most people here say: More than one big games in one year is good/okay, by one developer. because the console-sales figures are stronger than awards.



I didn’t mean they’d rather have an award than good sales. I was talking from the perspective of the developer not the publisher. I already said TC’s suggestion is ridiculous. Sony at this point has enough teams to be putting out atleast 3 big games a year. There’s no sense in holding back releases they gotta put them out at some point.

besides if they didn’t release God of War last year, RDR2 would’ve won anyway.

red dead redemption 2 was very strong. no chance vs god of war, last year - BUT a good chanche versus spiderman. this three was the biggest in my personally opinion.

"The Last of Us 2" is officially Game of the Year 2020, worldwide. Ghost of Tsushima-Artwork:
