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.Last edited by Azzanation - on 28 January 2021
