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

Congrats to God Of War, I won't lie, I thought it would be a consensus sweep for RDR2 to win GOTY. Both are great games but well deserved by the SSM team.

More impressive is how now both times rockstar has released a big game that everyone has been waiting for, since they dont release games to often, sony just edges them out and steal GOTY.

Considering how rare their huge games are... They must be pissed at that aha. 

Not just that, but they know their games are top quality. Its like a james bond moment when they have 4 aces, then sony comes in with a straight flush and wins the pot.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

I loved RDR2, but honestly I can understand why they picked up GOW; gameplay is simply fantastic and every minute of this Game was a piece of art :)

Agree. I havent finished RDR@ yet, but now I gota stop and play GOW some more. :p

I don't agree with most of these including previous year.

It goes to show that my tastes are far removed from most of the media and consumers, when earlier media and consumers were directly in queue with my own tastes. Guess I've become an old school gamer now xD

At this rate, Rockstar will become the ones lookin to see if a sony game is releasing in the same year with them.

God of War (182) getting close to passing Breath Of The Wild (189)



Congrats to Santa Monica ! The Game is a jewel.

185 Game Of The Year's for God Of War only 4 away from beating Breath Of The WIld with D.I.C.E, GDC, NAVGTR, Baftas, IGN Select Awards, Italian Game Awards, SXSW and a few small sites left safe to say GOW hits 190 or possibly more depending on how the next few awards get sent out.



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!
