Last of us 2 best storytelling of all things? Fuck that



I am Iron Man

Never understood the idea that Last of Us 2 was going to suffer in GOTY awards because of being "controversial". Wasn't controversial amongst the gaming press. And they are the ones who decide all these awards.

Was there ever a doubt?

Story telling, lulz

Also maybe I have a different definition of "family game" but how is an online only, no local MP game the best family game?

What does "outstanding contribution - the gaming industry" mean



I’m immensely enjoying TLOU2 winning the big awards left and right. Especially in the story telling department just to stick it to the noisy, whining and close minded haters who were and still being bothered by the direction of the story and even went to the lengths of spoiling the narrative to the ones who didn’t experience it yet!! They try so hard to rain on everyone’s parade who loved and enjoyed this ultimate masterpiece.

People who protest over Last of Us 2 winning best storytelling just Do Not seem to have a grasp or understanding of subtext. Because this game uses A LOT of it. Starting with the theme of the game, which is NOT revenge, but rather, forgiveness.

I like TLoU2 a lot, it's probably my game of the year as well, but how can anyone take an award show seriously when there's an award for "Most Wanted Game"?
I mean, c'mon guys...
