Let's be real here, was a PC game like Alyx ever, and I mean ever going to win anything, let alone GOTY?.

It wasn't, it never would and never will, because these award shindigs are always stacked for either Sony and sometimes Nintendo or some rando third party game that just happens to hail from the land of the Rising Sun.

I always had an inkling that TLOU2 was going to win, just like how I have that same feeling a Sony game is going to win the GOTY on this very site, because it happens practically every year and nowt changes, because of how it's stacked.


Also, Death Stranding PC GOTY: ayyy L M A O. 

What you mean "on this site"? The staff or the users?

Regardless, this site has always been Nintendo land, do Sony games really win got here every year? Can you please show it to me as I find it extremely hard to believe.

Actually I recall something completely different, specially user related.

Last year was RE: 2 beating out Fire Emblem 3 Houses.

2018 was God of War beating out Smash Ultimate.

2017 was BOTW beating out Horizon Zero Dawn.

2016 was Uncharted 4 beating out Last Guardian.

2015 was Rocket League. No runner up beyond this point.

2014 was Smash Wii U.

2013 was Mario 3D World.

2012 was Journey.

2011 was Skyrim.

2010 was Mass Effect 2.

2009 was Uncharted 2.

2008 was Little Big Planet.

2007 was BioShock.

Out of 13 years, 5 Sony games, 3 Nintendo, and 5 other. Nothing really jumps out to me as questionable enough that I'd accuse anyone of bias, although I don't think Uncharted or 3D World were really GOTY worthy... although they did come out in relatively weak years. Also think that Galaxy 2 should have won over Mass Effect 2, despite how good ME 2 was, but that's just me.

3D World won in 2013 against stacked competition including GTA V and TLOU. It felt wrong back then and looks even worse in hindsight. TLOU is the highest rated game in the history of this site's reviews with a score of 9.8 out of 10. However I think some influential editorial staff did not like the game so much. It would be shocking if TLOU II wins GOTY on this site seeing as the official review score is 7 out of 10. The review scores do not really have any correlation to GOTY picks especially when the user vote element is included.

Never actually played either of those games, so I really can't say. As for reviews, reviews are done by a single editor. There are something like 20 listed staff members... so the correlation you should expect between reviews and GOTY is about 1/20.

4 Sony games. So yeah, nothing really close to Sony winning every year. For example the PS4 has less GOTY winners than the Wii U. (Though BotW is way more popular on Switch)

Also the greatest games event, which is by far the biggest one in this site, is literally always dominated by Nintendo games.

There is nothing wrong with it, but it was always really easy to notice Nintendo fans are the majority around here.

Are you sure Journey is a Sony IP?

I know Santa Monica helped with it but the game is even on iphone.

Regardless, Sony published it and co-developed it. It was Sony exclusive at the time it won the award. Sony published it on PS3, Vita, and PS4. It's a Sony game.

A shame the award can't fix the writing.

⚠️ WARNED: Trolling (generally negative towards TLOU: Pt II)

Nah it's a Sony game if Sony owns it.

A shame that you can’t recognise phenomenal writing.
