IGN: Game Of The Year Is The Last Of Us

When it came to my pick for Game of the Year 2013, it wasn’t really a contest. The other nominees were exemplary in their own right, but the fact of the matter is The Last of Us may very well be a once-in-a-generation sort of experience, one that expertly melds together plot, gameplay, and characters into something so riveting and fun to play that it’s hard to put down. The Last of Us is a true accomplishment, one that’s emotional, well-acted, and fun to play. It somehow set the bar even higher than the Uncharted series already did, giving Naughty Dog yet another game it has to strive to beat in the future. And that’s nothing but good news for gamers.

What is the official Identity that decides which is the GOTY ? (If there is one)

GraveLord1566d ago

There isn't one but usually if IGN gives a game the GOTY status, you'll be seeing a GOTY edition pop up soon :D

YES! What a fantastic game, truly deserving of the honors.

Here's to Naughty Dog on their finest masterpiece yet.

VGX. Catch it this year. You won't regret it.

The Diaperman and Dorito Pope show?

No thanks I'm a gamer and I won't stand for another horrible mockery of this wonderful hobby.

The only awards that should matter are from the Game Developers Awards.

Awards placed, voted, hosted and received from Game Developers themselves.It's been the mature VGX for the last 14 years.VGX just tarnishes the practice of GOTY's.

This years awards aren't announced yet but the finalists have already been revealed.

Is it me or does that footage look extremely 'sharp'? This is definitely legitimate footage because I've played the damn thing seven times now, but it doesn't look that sharp on my TV even though I've got a 1080p TV ... Why would that be? Take a look at the draw distance in the giraffe sequence to see what I mean.

Like I've said before, TLOU is a truly special game that I am glad to have experienced. The whole game is an emotional roller-coaster and one that manages to fuse fun, exciting gameplay with an interesting narrative and realistic, dynamic characters.

Every scene in TLOU is special in its own way and the game manages to be so brutal and vicious and yet so beautiful at the same time. It is a once in a lifetime experience and I am glad it's getting the recognition it deserves. Great job ND

In years this is the first game that i played that when i completed it i looked at the time and it was 7am and i never do that i was gobsmacked. GOTY well deserved in my opinion.

It's games like this that make me hate that FPS's can't put together great single player campaigns ...TLOU was everything you said plus I felt it was mature ...I hate how some games make no logical sense and are a certain way because gamers are the audience. No I don't wanna fight unlimited waves of enemies, and take a million hits and not die ...TLOU was so tense, and thought-provoking

Well deserved :)

CaptainSellers1566d ago
