TLOU was a better game than GTAV and many would agree on. If Mario Odyessy released along side GTAV, it would have raked home all the awards aswell. 

Mario Odyssey is considered by many one of the GOTG. TLOU2 had no competition outside a niche VR title and Indies.

Zelda had to compete with one of the very best Mario games ever made.

I honestly doubt Mario Odissey would have ranked all the awards against GTAV. GTAV is the most successful video game ever and Mario Odissey was not even second in 2017.

The fact is you are, again, trying to downplay TLoU2 success, this time by pointing the only Nintendo game to win the overall GOTY in the last decade, while many years had very strong competition, like 2013, and TLoU performed even better than BotW even so, even being an older year as you having acknowledged as years go more awards are given, making TLoU feat being by all means more noteworthy of being picked out to try to give weight to the point you were pretending to be trying to make to downplay TLoU2 yet again, but then you would sound less with the people you are trying to get.

Here we go with the "You are downplaying this and that" cut the crap, I am stating that BOTW had massive competition in its year, and the awards were going to many other good games. 2020 offered only a few good games. Its all about timing. Horizon Zero Dawn won nothing in its year and so did Spiderman etc. If they came out at a different time frame they might have won more awards however it all depends on the year and the competition. Weather you want to acknowledge that or not, its simply reality.

You have a less chance on winning awards if your year of release is filled with masterpieces and Great games. You have a higher chance on winning awards when there is less masterpiece and great games released that same year. You don't agree with that? Sounds pretty obvious to me.

Like any competition, sport is the same, you have a higher chance on winning the championship if the competition is weak.

You guys are here comparing Zelda, Mario, and TLOU, while I'm just thinking God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 had to go up against eachother. Either of those games would've cleaned up had they released separately in any other year.



Thank god we have people so well intended to keep the happiness of the thread in check so we don't get to happy about the awards.

Where were the flaws in the writing or narrative? And we don't really know of the 4 people who contributed to the writing, how much neil took part. Still doesn't change the fact how amazing everything in the game was. Like I said everything was well thought out and planned to fit. Even the slower paced moments, and lines of dialogue, was important. The facial expressions and body language is important. Things that I over looked in my first run, I understood more and appreciated in the second playthrough, and more so in the third. This is like one of those movies that you can watch everyday, and appreciate it more, that never gets old. 

I honestly can't see any game in the future topping this. Even if they come and make tlou3, this will still be a hard one to beat.

You don't seem to want to listen, but only to pivot some title out of millions to some artificial top spot for what ultimately amount to, insignificant reasons. 

I'm just going to leave it at that.

Don't want to listen to what? where am i wrong?

And this is why I've stopped bothering in trying to explain things to you, because you seem cock sure you're right, despite it being entirely a subjective matter.

Well you did mention flaws and such, so please elaborate.

Why elaborate with someone who believes they are in the right from the get-go?. It's like giving an answer, only to be told "you're wrong, I'm right", and that's a pointless topic to bother with.

You're the one that started the whole " flaw" thing. So i'm asking what are these flaws that stop the game from being great or game of year worthy?

I mentioned that others had already pointed out the flaws in the writing. You on thee other hand declared it as practically flawless without explaining in depth as to why that is in an objective sense, without subjectivity.

I can tell it'll go nowhere, because of how you've been going on about it as having nowt wrong with it, complete with the rose tinted glasses.

Every so called flaw I have heard has been countered and argued, so is there really a flaw that is unanimously agreed upon, if so let me hear it. I want to see people back up their claims of "flaws" , that would get in the way of a game deserving of game of year status, and how it fails compared to other games on the list.  I see a lot of people jumping on the bandwagon of hate and criticism of neil, but nothing substantial to back it up.
