Guerrilla's Horizon: Zero Dawn is the top winner at this year's NAVGTR (National Academy of Video Game Trade Reviewers) Awards with seven wins. Cuphead got six, while Super Mario Odyssey and Persona 5 both won five times.
Bravo for Nintendo for winning another GOTY award.
The all did great especially Sony and Nintendo.
Reading not your strong suit?
Where’s the category for most lucrative micro transactions? EA got robbed!
Why the disagrees for hench07? The article clearly says Super Mario Odyssey won GOTY. :)
A fantastic game indeed... well deserving of the wins.
Well deserved. Horizon Zero Dawn is a technical masterpiece. I’ve really enjoyed the game so far as I’m currently finishing up The Frozen Wilds. Amazing new franchise for Guerilla Games going forward.
Congrats, GG !
yeah, can't believe such an amazing game play, beautiful, and all around great story like Horizon has didn't win any game of the year awards.
Honestly, it was a really great year with tons of GOTY-level contenders. Great for us, but it's difficult for awards. Doesn't take away from the game though, Horizon is still a really good game.
It all comes down to volume and saturation, so sales are a large indicator in GOTY assessment. If a game that sales less is deemed GOTY then the risk of offending would be viewers or supporters is greatly increased, because it is about them and what they think not the gaming experience. Otherwise, what did Zelda do different than the Witcher or Horizon? Zelda, essentially, did what was different than other Zelda games not from other games available. So it wins due to so many supporters gelling over just how different the experience was, while some that have played The Witcher or the like will not share in the same sentiment. So, it comes off as more amazing due to it being so "different" from the Zelda formula. Once coupled with the volume of Zelda supporters, you have an outcome that can never be different. Look throughout the history of Nintendo titles and you will also see the same trend.
Well deserved .. Congrats GG.. You guys have created a Masterpiece and have raised the bar also motivated other first party to create something new and different. That being said i hope both Ghost of tsushima and Days Gone follows the path. Those two looks amazing..
Shame The Evil Within 2 missed the Action award, it's becoming underrated at this point. Such a fantastic sequel.
Absolutely agreed. What's so sad and sucks is in another time or generation Evil Within 2 easily would have won game of the year. That's such an underrated game it's not even funny
The open world environment was meh for Evil within 2. The town looked really plain and you were navigating that area for most of the game. And some the voice acting was really bad... But since this could be one of the last "RE4" type games for awhile people should pick it up. Hopefully RE2 Remake uses the same gameplay style...
What a well deserved win!
👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻
Horizon Zero Dawn won award for Best New IP Ok good, I'm happy. Well deserved
As it should!
Deserves all of the accolades given to it. Horizon is a fantastic game and was pretty much the best game of the year.
I played both this and Zelda and i disagree......i agree with the majority who put Zelda as game of the year. You would think with horizon winning so much awards that they would put it as game of the year but instead they gave it to Mario I disagree Mario was not the game of the year
Seems like Sony and Nintendo exclusives cleaned housed.
But, but, but only thing that matters is "True 4K. Nobody wants to play single driven stories anymore, especially if it was exclusive ones". 😂
There’s no impact in SP games anymore. GASS and Sense of Pride and Accomplishment is what matters now.
Fully fully fully fully fully fully deserved. Congrats Guerrilla Games.
As it should! One of my 2017 GOTY!
I can get behind this list for the most part.
Absolute respect and deserving new intellectual property with no established fan base prior absolutely sweeps these Awards.
Dang, Mario Odyssey won GOTY, good going Mario. Good going Persona, Horizon and Zelda.
Every award this dev team gets for Horizon is well deserved and well earned.
My favorite game of this generation and one of the top games in gaming history.
I disagree with game of the year winner, it should of been Zelda not Mario, but congrats to horizon a good game but not game of the year material a solid 8 to 8.5 for me, great start for new IP
I disagree, I completed Zelda with all Shrines/900 Koroks and Super Mario Odyssey with every Moon, yet Horizon: Zero Dawn was in a league of it's own and so far my game of the generation. I also played HZD on a PS4 Pro with a 4KTV and it was mindblowingly stunning.
Mario was far far far superior to Zelda. It kept adding entertaining mechanics and was a joy. Zelda, not so much.
Horizon: Zero Dawn was easily my GOTY last year, followed by LoZ: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Gran Turismo Sport, Persona 5, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Fire Emblem Echoes: SoV, Assassin's Creed: Origins, South Park: TFBW, Metroid Samus Returns, and Nier: Automata
and next year it will be GoW.
