Much deserved! Amazing game on so many levels and much loved, as shown by the completion rate! :^)

Deserves each and every one of them! The game was a crazy ride, with a level of meticulous detail I've yet to see anything else come close to. Though, Naughty Dog has proven again and again that they're in a league of their own when it comes to going that extra mile on things most people wouldn't ever even take the time of day to notice.

The last of us 2 is the best game released last generation and is the best game this generation so far technologically. Naughty dog is the best gaming studio

24 The Last of Us Part II
21 Ghost of Tsushima
20 Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Looks like Sony did quite well.

It was one of the best years of sony history. That simple.

"Unsurprisingly, Sony left every other publisher in the dust with 70 nominations in total between all of its games, mostly thanks to Ghost of Tsushima, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and The Last of Us Part II itself."

The movement in this game is so good. Immediately after finishing it I moved on to Ghost of Tsushima and first impressions were that Ghost's movement was janky. It wasn't, as I've adjusted, but TLOU2 is so amazing it spoils you...

TheKingKratos38d ago

Yeah I did the same thing .... and it was jarring going from TLOU2 to GOT
TLOU is so high up it wasn't fair to play ghost after it but I adjust and still enjoyed my time with GOT

Kilua37d ago

Lol, thought i was the only one. Going from TLOU 2 and jumping into ghosts straight after, the difference in the quality of animations and movement in characters especially was very jarring. But then you continue playing and realise how top notch Ghosts is.

Christopher37d ago

Actually the exact same, tbh. TLOU2, hate the story or not, was really refined technically. I still prefer GoT overall (bias due to it being my favorite genre of game), but TLOU2 deserves so many awards for tech and graphics/design.

That's how it always is with Naughty Dog games. After finishing one I try to play something completely different, like a racing game or something, otherwise it will just seem like crap by comparison.

Garbage site. COD black ops cold war was nominated for Goty but not FF7R or Hades?

frostypants38d ago

That definitely raised an eyebrow. They don't appear to have put much thought to it beyond popularity.
