Forums - Gaming Discussion - Game Of The Year Tracker 2020 - The Last Of Us Part II / Sony Dominating!

Not to point out the obvious and rain on some parades, but winning GotY has just as much to do with competition as it does with quality of the game itself. Point being TLoU 2 released in 2020, and the competition was light. 2020 was one of the weakest years in recent memory, at least in my opinion.

2017 on the other hand was outstanding, one of the greatest. Mario Odyssey, Nier Auotamata, Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, Divinity Original Sin 2, Horizon Zero Dawn, Cuphead, Nioh,

Ghost deserved better!
While I did enjoy TLOU Part II seeing this list further solidifies my opinion of it being overrated.



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Part II now passed Skyrim and entered the podium at #3.

Not too far are now part I and The Witcher 3.

It has a shot, it will be difficult from now on, but the game already achieved a top 3 spot, which is amazing, 7 months ago, some people wouldn’t believe it.

Oh yeah, I remember that excuse on 2013 too, TLoU won record breaking awards numbers because there was no competition, when the most successful videogame ever, GTAV, released that same year...
