I have to admit, I am very, very, VERY disappointed. I was rooting for The Last of Us all the way, since it's the only game with an ending that made me cry. It's my favorite game of all time and one that I would play over and over again. What a great game.

Still, congratulations to Rockstar and GTA V. You really deserve it for such a great game.

Huge GTA fan here (GTA1 is what sparked my love for videogames) and i love GTA5 but i completely disagree with GTA5 winning game of the year, The Last Of Us should have won this easily.

Not only is TLOU game of the year for me, but one of the best games ive ever played.

Hatsune-Miku1631d ago

Solidifies that this gaming award show is rubbish

iGAM3R-VIII1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

im sorry but the last of us deserved it, GTA V may have sold the most but quality and storyline and grphics goes to TLOU

mikeslemonade1631d ago

You guys are wrong. VGX made the right choice with Grand Theft Auto 5.

Angels37851631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

This show is so embarrassing it is raping my hobby......and Im not talking about their decision for goty even if the last of us won its just........awful. I feel embarrassed being associated with games :(

...despite the social media pointing to the last of us on their own site (VGX.COM people voted TLOU) by a long shot...and people on their panel a few days ago practically saying the last of us was the best (Bonus round VGX show)


What in the hell are you talking about...

My argument was that one people who voted and twitters numbers point to the last of us....

and critics on the panel in a bonus round on gametrailers all unanimously voted for the last of us....

learn to read before posting gibberish that you pulled out of nowhere...that doesnt even put together a cohesive argument....I seriously have no idea what the pointy of what you were saying was......

mikeslemonade1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

It's not by a long shot.. If you look at all the things that GTA5 you will see that it edges LOU out. LOU had to beat Uncharted 2(life to date) and it doesn't do it. However GTA5 beats GTA4(life to date). This is why GTA5 wins. It beats the competition. Stop looking at just the game at itself. Or else your argument supports COD winning every year, Assasins Creed winning every year, or Battlefield winning every year.

garos821631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

@lucas totally agree

I truly loved gta5. possibly the best one yet.

However last of us left a more of an impression on me for being quite unique as an experience. I feel that the competitive multiplayer is one of best games I've played online that was not only unique in gameplay but played hand in hand with the single players meta story.

Both were superb games
@mike above
Are you arguing with yourself? Are you for, or against sales as an indicator whether a game should win an award?
If sales impress you shouldn't they also give awards to the advertising agency that marketed the game.

xHeavYx1631d ago

All in going to say is that 3 people from Polygon were part of the jury on this bs show

MajorLazer1631d ago

I knew N4G would go into meltdown x'D

JackISbacK1631d ago

yeah it was an deserving game of the year but people like are very hyping it saying that it was the best game ever they played ,not in the hell it is not the best game ever made ,but one of the best thats all dont hype it that much ,yeah we know it was created by naughty dog.

agreed TLOU is the best game of 2013

-Foxtrot1631d ago

Total bullcrap

Funny how they were already their in the studio since they were doing the live music thing

Seriously we moan about how theres never enough new IPs then when there is a new fantastic video game which blows everyone away the GOTY goes to another sequel which had a broken online, least the Last of Us had a fantastic single player and multiplayer

Brand name gets you the votes, not the actual game.

hellzsupernova1631d ago

This. This in spades!

TheGrimReaper00111631d ago

To bad I can't agree with you twice.
I knew GTA V was gonna win.
It's not a bad game, but I enjoyed The Last of Us WAY more

omi25p1631d ago

Naughty Dog beat Rockstar for Studio of the year.

Stop moaning, Your acting as if someone punched you're mother.

While you and alot of other people preferred The Last Of Us. I Can guarantee alot more people preferred GTA V.

-Foxtrot1631d ago


Oh for god sake stop telling people what they can't do and what they can't say on here

Seriously some users on here think they can control people into saying something they WANT to hear because it doesn't match their opinion

I agree, The Last Of Us is amazing and should have won it. GTAV won mostly because it has a bigger fan base than TLOU. The only great thing about GTAV is the story mode, the online got boring after a week.

Black-Helghast1631d ago

And even the story is kinda boring... haven't touched the game ever since i finished it while im STILL playing B:I and TLOU to get their amazing plats

DonFreezer1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Wait so know we have to give the game of the year award to The Last Of Us because some cry babies on n4g want to. GTA V was a bigger game probably one of the biggest of all times in context of lifespan and quality.

this is bs.
Last of Us was amazing.

majiebeast1631d ago


Most overrated pos of the year thats what it deserves.

ape0071631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

in an alternative universe, what would your comment be if GTA V was a sony exclusive and TLOU was a multiplat?

LoL ,anyways both games in my eyes are well deserved a GOTY award as well as SM3D World, it feels bad when u have one slot for GOTY :(

Alex_Boro1631d ago

GTA V was incomplete. Its' multiplayer didn't come out until 2 weeks later, and 2 weeks later it still didn't work. They just released it later to get good press scores.

xPhearR3dx1631d ago

GTA V incomplete? Lol please. GTA V is more complete than 99.9% of games out there. It's not like they lied about the MP anyway, they announced it would go live 2 weeks after the game months before it released. On top of that, it's the fastest selling entertainment product of all time. When your gap for online is 2 weeks, everyone is trying to connect at once rather than being split up like most games when they launch.

For having what? 20+ million people trying to play GTA Online throughout the day, did you really expect the servers to be stable? NO company can test that kind of traffic. It's impossible. It took them 2 days to get it up and running. Yet you're whining it's incomplete when there's AAA games like Battlefield 4 still broken a month after launch.

As much as I love The Last of Us, GTA V is equally deserving of the GOTY title.

Alex_Boro1627d ago

At least when Battlefield 4 came out I could play campaign and multiplayer on my PC. And even if there wasn't multiplayer issues it's still two weeks late. Sales don't equal how good a game is. Take COD for instance. Anyways I'm pretty sure every game ships with multiplayer and single player complete, even if there is technical issues. GTA V did not ship complete end of story.

ajax171631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Of course it had to be one of those two. I was disappointed as well. This was definitely one of those years where I wished there was 2 Goty winners. One for the first half and one for the latter half of the year.

59fifty1631d ago

Even though I own a ps system only, i didn't enjoy The Last of Us like i did GTA V..
And since this is a PS fanboy site, of course you guys want TLOU to win, i mean, even HAZE and LAIR would win if it was up to you guys.

Black-Helghast1631d ago

Lmao, you're wrong bud. TLOU is just a pretty amazing game and so is BioShock Infinite. I wouldn't had minded if BioShock won because I really enjoyed it but both bioshock and TLOU losing to GTA V? Pfft don't make me laugh. That game got boring after the first hour.. Hell, even while i was high the game got boring. YOU KNOW A GAME IS TOO BORING WHEN YOU CAN'T EVEN PLAY IT WHILE HIGH.

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1631d ago

Wreaks of political pick and im sure since its 3rd party aswell that was a factor, i thought it should have been last of us the game had everything. Of course polygon being on the voting panel had something to do with it and more casual players are going to vote for gta5 but most gamers i talked to voted for last of us.

Indo1631d ago

Like watching GoodFellas vs Dancing with Wolves. You know one is good than the other in different ways, but one had to win the award. TLOU should have won though.

bjmartynhak1631d ago

Well, I'm happy with the "Banderas-Joel" hhahaha

C-H-E-F1631d ago

TLOU is the one of the Best Games ever made, most polished as well. They are just D*** riding the GTA5 train... I love GTA5 but TLOU was GOTY and is GOTY... smh

Conzul1631d ago


I feel so (irrationally?) angry about this that I'm starting to wonder if I should seek help.

TBONEJF1631d ago

ROCK * KICK A$$ when it comes to making a game better than the COD crap. WELL DONE ROCK* well done. and i can't believe i miss it. did anyone from ROCK* show up at the wards?

YOLO_Doge1630d ago

Well deserved, 10/10 game, in your face naughty dog fanboys!

Not complaining. Each of the nominee games could have won it. All great games.

Why o why1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Fairest comment.....yeah I did say that.+1

I'd go for the last of us but its not everybody's cup of tea... shawshank redemption was a great film but not everybody loves it as much as I did.. sometimes its just like judging what the fruit of the year is.

.....Just read there's some polygon dudes on the well.

MoroseMankey1631d ago

Thank you for not being so closed minded!

Majin-vegeta1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Overhyped POS game.

@Super i played it trust me i only passed the first mission before being bored of it.

@Gaming no just my opinion.

superbhoy1631d ago

i think the last of us deserved it but gta 5 is not a POS

CaptainPunch1631d ago

Did someone piss in your cereal this morning? It's just an award lmao.

Nujabes_1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

What a sad little man you are.

YOLO_Doge1630d ago

You may think GTAV was overrated, I thought TLOU was hugely overrated, and yes I have played and even completed it so I'm not biased, it was a good game but the fanboys just kill it for me, they treat it likes it's gods gift to gaming, on a side note I thought the MP for both games was rubbish!
