What a joke



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Death Stranding > Half Life Alyx for PC GOTY??
I have both and ill easily say DS doesn't even hold a candle to HL-A. Another reason why we shouldnt take these awards seriously. Definitely misleading.



Well deserved for The Last of Us 2.

I can see why some wouldn't enjoy it but on a technical level this is one of the best games I've ever played. The small refinements in gameplay, adding the ability to jump, prone, smash glass, squeeze through crevices, with inclusions of new items like rope, adds so much versatility to firefights, stealth, environmental puzzles and exploration. These improvements are made even better with brilliant combat scenarios, larger areas with multiple pathways, drastically improved enemy AI (on hard+) and semi linear design with a few open world elements. Remember the jump in gameplay from Uncharted to Uncharted 2? That's how I think of the jump from TLOU to TLOU: Part II in terms of gameplay.



The negative reactions to what is a general public voted awards show are priceless.



Death Stranding over Alyx is really a surprise.
TLoU2 sweeping is not, but totally undiserved.
The characters do feel human and beliefable, but I could not enjoy the story at all. What they did was obvious and heavy handed. There were mature things happening, but the story felt kiddy and full of missed opportunities.

Is it voted by the public? If so than that explains alot. It makes it nothing more than a popularity contest. Quantity over Quality award. Of course HL-A wont win anything, its a VR game. 



Upset about the game generally, and now upset it gets an award. Gamers need to get a life.

For real! Like how it is to hard to just accept how the game went and just let go and move on to more meaningful things in life instead of sulking about a video game that no one forced them to buy or experience and they can just easily ignore and dismiss.

Very well done TLOU2. And happy to see Death Stranding winning on PC, I liked the game a lot.

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

Way to go. Yes let's expose TLOU2 story telling for how bad it is, right?
