Forums - Gaming Discussion - 2020 Golden Joystick Awards- The Last of Us 2 Wins Ultimate Game of the Year!

Torillian said:

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.

Correct me if I'm wrong. But Joystick Award is public-voted. Seeing The Last of Us 2 dominating the biggest public-voted awards puts things into perspective. The controversy doesn't seem as big as the internet would like you to believe.

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.

If it was so obvious why so many were confused on what happened and pissed about it?

Very deserved, what a fantastic game. The haters just realizing how little their opinion matters.



People really do not know what storytelling means, right?

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?

I think most people already know. No problems with the other awards it won, and not like any of this is a big deal anyway. 

Fall Guys winning family game is a bigger dud. 



Oh my bad, i was referring to people on youtube and on other sites. And two users on the first page of this thread. Sorry, i should not generalize and be more clear. 



TLOU2 truly separated and highlighted the ones who are actually deep and truly think from the ones who are shallow and just take things for face value.

Don't think most people already know, critics liked the story (well even giving it GOTY on that) and several players also though it. And well if this is a gamers voting and it won that should mean that most think it is a good story. So not sure most people know it is bad.

Not sure if being MP only should remove Fall Guys from the discussion. What I do know is that my daugther, son, wife, cousin and nieces loved the game and is the one the mostly played and liked in a good while, for me that qualifies it as family game.

My question was more because the way you said I had no idea if you said it because you think people that complain about TLOU2 story is wrong or if it's people that like it is wrong =p
