what about dreams, that doesn't count? regardless, tlou2 wins any year since the first game.
It isn't about counting, it is about how Last 2 was clearly the most critically well received game in 2020.
As for Last 2 winning in any year... cool if you believe that. I don't. I think Breath, GTA V, God of War, RDR2, Witcher 3 and many others could have easily split the vote (had they released in the same year). This is my larger point. There wasn't another game at the level (regardless of my personal opinion) that was able to compete with Last 2 in 2020.
