A new record has been broken by developer Naughty Dog’s latest game The Last of Us: Part II as it has now won more Game of the Year awards than any other game in history.
Congratulations to Naughty Dog for this achievement!
they were nt all fair imo
Tlou 2 is technologically the best game ever made and its also a great game. It deserves amazing success. I can't wait to play an updated ps5 version and also factions 2.

I mean, I didn't like the original, (gameplay was just clunky IMO) so I actually like the new one better, but I would hardly call it the best game ever. Considering it has received the most awards, that is implied (if not explicit) to be the case. I feel like the series is a bit overhyped IMO, even of the Naughty Dog properties I prefer Uncharted better. Good to see a SP story driven game getting the limelight, we need more of that, so no complaints here. That said I honestly do think Tsushima was better, but I get that trolls have made that a edgy opinion. Not to mention other Sony exclusive SP games that were objectively better on all fronts like God of War 4. (I could legitimately understand that being the most awarded game)
@Gotta Jimmy That is the issue. You can't say objectively, because that would only becomparing technical aspects. So visuals, fps, sound design, how buggy the game is, etc... The game is a technical marvel. And as much as I love Tsushima, its physics don't match, animations don't match, models don't match, and details don't match. I loved Tsushima art style and how gorgeous the game is, but it had a lot of low resolution textures. God of War is the closest combatant, but still falters to it. Now if we're talking subjectively, then it boils down to your opinion. This isn't saying the game is unanimously the best nor should that be the intent. I didn't agree with the TW3 the GOAT. The animations and combat put me off. But I share minority opinion. The majority of critics and players thought it was. Now that has happened with TLOU2. Not unanimously the greatest, just a majority gave it game of year, and may be considered it GOAT. You share a minority opinion stating otherwise. That's fine that you do. Not everyone's opinions align
True goty, not Ghost of Tsushima who shouldn’t even have been nominated.
“The Last of Us: Part II Has Now Won More Game of the Year Awards than Any Other Game in History” This is false. ☝️ TLoU pt1 still has far more critic awards at 191. Pt 2 might catch it but it is still sitting at 169. User reviews are not significant in comparing with past years as the number of user awards increases dramatically every year.
Amazing achievement, isn't it? Fully justifiable too - awesome game!
Games media sure did push this one along with the awards despite the first one being far better both from a games journalist standpoint and user reviews. I enjoyed detroit and hellblade2 far more because it wasn’t ideologically driven with poor storytelling. But if you like it good for you but like the oscars more awards doesn’t equate to anything other than the media really liked it for whatever reasons.
@gamer7804 I found one of those salty haters. As usual people like this ignore the fact that the game has 90+ player voted GOTY awards which is FAR more than any other game last year. But yeah tell me more how it's just the media who thinks it's an amazing game. Btw I like how you enjoyed Hellblade 2 more when that game isn't even going to be out for another 1-2 years.
@gamer7804 "I enjoyed detroit and hellblade2 far more because it wasn’t ideologically driven..." Telling on yourself? That would explain why you've been so insistent on sticking by false claims about this game. You need to let it go. The case is closed and has been closed for a while now. You may not agree with the outcome, but this obsessive compulsion to relitigate it just because the game or someone involved with it is mentioned or given props is not a good look. Besides, as I explained to you in our extensive back and forth on this thread https://n4g.com/comments/re... TLOU2 has almost 700% more positive user reviews than the original on the site you named as the basis for your opinion.
@ gamer7804: yeah yeah, the media this, the media that. But did you miss the fact that this game also has the most Reader's Choice awards? More than Breath of the Wild, more than The Witcher 3.
Why even discuss this with such an obvious Xbox troll? If he can put TLOU 2 in a negative light, he will. Here. Even in a damn Mass Effect Andromeda article: "I really liked it, but like last of us part 2, I can see the flaws and why it’s sitting in the 5 range on metacritic. " https://n4g.com/news/239819...
@gamer7804 Someone appears to be really hurt by this, but we all expected this
"Why even discuss this with such an obvious Xbox troll? If he can put TLOU 2 in a negative light, he will." I struggle to find a reason beyond trolling that someone would claim "games media sure did push this one along with the awards" when anyone who bothered to read the article can see that TLOU2 actually won more reader's choice awards and less media awards than the original.
@RauLeCreuset Yep. It is willful ignorance. Plain and simple.
Anyone else here find the usual TLOU2 disagree bot about as subtle as a sledgehammer to the groin? Someone needs to get over it! At least make it a little less obvious Lmao
@raul just because you were right on the percentage of number of users that slightly more liked it then didn’t still isn’t glowing praise or change the fact that in general it was less well received by users than the previous game even with it having the benefit of being a sequel. Again it’s fine if some people like it and some people don’t. I liked mass effect andromeda and a lot of other people didn’t. It’s just opinions no reason to get so defensive about it. It’s okay to like a devisive game.
@gamer7804 LMAO. Okay guy. It's over half a year after release, and you're still popping into TLOU2 accolade articles spreading lies and moving goalposts to hate on the game. Pretending it's the people arguing against you who are so insecure that they need the masses to agree with them is as losing an argument as all of your others. Let me direct your attention to your comment that "games media sure did push this one" and leave you with this, lest you think I got distracted swatting down your deflections. From the article you must not have bothered to read: The Last of Us: Part II – 261 (169 Media, 92 Reader’s Choice) The Last of Us – 254 (196 Media, 58 Reader’s Choice) Which got more media awards, and which got more reader's choice awards? D'oh!
@raul oh okay so only certain opinions are acceptable after a period of time, it’s like instead of a timed exclusive it’s a timed opinion, gotcha forgot how echo chambers worked.
@gamer7804 Did you also forget how strawman arguments work, or should we chalk this up to your penchant for disingenuous commentary? BTW, still from the article you didn't read before sticking your foot in your mouth. The Last of Us: Part II – 261 (169 Media, 92 Reader’s Choice) The Last of Us – 254 (196 Media, 58 Reader’s Choice)
@raul no straw man , just some people’s opinions, I’m not saying it didn’t win any player awards. It did, doesn’t change the fact there were still a large amount of players who didn’t like it. Myself included. You can count yourself in the the group who liked it, you just cant discount the other groups existence though.
@gamer7804 You either don't know what a strawman argument is or are being disingenuous. Moving on. "I’m not saying it didn’t win any player awards" There you go moving the goalposts again. Here's what you said: "Games media sure did push this one along with the awards despite the first one being far better both from a games journalist standpoint and user reviews. I enjoyed detroit and hellblade2 far more because it wasn’t ideologically driven with poor storytelling. But if you like it good for you but like the oscars more awards doesn’t equate to anything other than the media really liked it for whatever reasons." Your entire point is invalidated by the fact that the article you didn't bother reading shows TLOU2 had less media awards and more reader's choice awards than TLOU. "Games media sure did push this one along..." What a fail.
@raul of course it had more user reviews there are more in general than media critics... I wast even talking about that part... all I’m saying is player wise it was a divisive game. And you can choose to love the game that’s fine but you can’t deny the existence that there is a large group that didn’t.
After the disappointment of CP2077, it is safe to say that TLOU2 is one of the most well developed and well-polished game ever.
true, but is it fun? nope.
@yeahokwhatever Yes, actually it is indeed far more fun to play than the first game in fact because the gameplay is vastly superior and improved in every way!
@yeahokwhatever Well, that is subjective.
I'll put this here rather than reply to a comment that will be collapsed when someone gets sent away to enjoy their 2nd ban: The Last of Us: Part II – 261 (169 Media, 92 Reader’s Choice) The Last of Us – 254 (196 Media, 58 Reader’s Choice) Anyone about to rant about the media should consider the implications of that.
The implication, other than what Golfcoachh mentioned below, is that game media are even more out of touch with actual gamers. I mean, remember 10 years ago when IGN and Gamespot's reviews were still generally taken seriously? Do you actually know of reviewers now that are looked up to? A game journalist used to be a sweaty nerd, but at least they'd know their stuff. Nowadays, journo's are pushing ideology instead of just reviewing games. So no, the opinion of 260 people who think they're qualified in what they do (but actually aren't), won't sway my opinion.
Doesn't hurt that there are far more game awards now than there were 20 years ago....
Yup, and TLOU2 still scooping up the biggest portion like a greedy thing!
This needs to be higher. It's why this is not a very meaningful statistic. Some other game will break this record within a couple of years, because there will be even more award givers for whatever the popular game of the time happens to be.
Witcher 3 was the previous record holder and that was only 5 years ago.
Yet no game was able to beat two games from 7 years ago (TLOU) and 5 years ago (witcher 3) Till 2021 (TLOU2) And there goes your entire argument
Anyone else notice that anyone praising the game is getting around 36+ downvotes. Someone definitely has made multiple accounts. What a sore loser.
Most of these awards are worthless. Nowadays, any fanboy can create a website, blog, stream, etc, and give awards to whoever they want... and it counts as +1. Basically, someone can create 100 websites and give 100 awards to the same game.
Lol well then people can do the same for other games. GOT had thousands voting for it to spite TLOU2. To think TLOU2 won 250+ awards from fake accounts is a whole other level of naivety
The YouTube reviewers went for clicks and likes so they started to hate on this game and this other mainstream media liking the game so much. This was one of the most sold game at launch generating the third most money in PlayStation history for an exclusive
Here for the ratio. You earned it.
Why are you being downvoted?
Someone has a bot that they use seemingly only in TLOU2 articles to paint the agree/disagree ratio in a bad light for the game - it's almost as funny as it is sad lol
no congrats at all. fuk that game. Ghost of Tsushima is outselling it. its just biased gaming journalism politics. fuk neil druckmann
Look at all the disagree bots activated and salty trolls who are on suicide watch Lmao
Well deserved for sure. Curious to see where the final tally for it will end up.
Well deserved indeed. I pray that ND weren't put off by the very vocal minority who done nothing but shit on the game and that we get to see The Last of Us Part 3 one day. That cliffhanger needs addressing 🙏
False news! The Witcher 3 is ahead with almost 100+ more awards! Reference: https://gotypicks.blogspot....
Maybe you should look at my source rather than go dig up one that isn't counting half of the awards that were handed out. That site you posted counts a site's award one year and then leaves it off the next. Too inconsistent to trust
Your reference is the site that just added much more strict, new rules this year that it wasn't following before? Of course the totals will be lower.
"it seems that both media and fans felt like it was the best game of the year" Amazing. Well done. FAN VOTED and WEBSITE VOTED. The game is a MASTERPIECE
Agreed. Patiently waiting for a PS5 patch.
Hear hear - and the multiplayer game!
No suprises here, despite my own issues with some parts of the story or having to play as abbie it truly was a special game, naughty dog deserve every bit of praise they get!
This sums up my feelings of the game exactly.
Absolutely agree with you. It's also the most memorable game of 2020 for me. Definitely my GOTY
Wow, whats with all the disagrees ?
You gave TLOU2 praise, even though you noted you had issues with it you should know by now that even the slightest bit of praise warrants vast disapproval!
Bots and salty trolls
@Flawlessmic - The haters are just disagreeing anything relating to praise for the game haha. They're so pathetic with that man... Anyone with half a brain can see how incredibly well made Last of Us 2 was. Not 'liking' the story direction is no excuse for saying the game is bad when it blows away anything else out there right now on a technical and design level. It's actually kind of sad that they missed out on such an amazing game.
At first I was just hoping the Abby thing would stop. After some more time playing as her I didnt mind it. They did real good making this game. I'm 38 years old and itsgotta be in my top 5 series/games ive ever played.
Let me get this straight people hate the game because of the story didnt go there way.
Not liking the story doesn’t mean you have to hate the game. Everything else about the game is nothing short of amazing. At least to me it is.
Standing ovation for a brilliant game
Brilliant game indeed!
Youtube comments on any TLOU 2 video: "Ah yes but TLOU 2 is the worst game ever made in the history of humanity - game awards are biased, rigged, unreliable, cant be trusted, dont mean anything and metacritic user score is the only metric that counts, the critic scores are biased as well. ND worst developer in the gaming industry. TLOU 2 spits in the face of the first game. Neil Druckmann worst director the industry has ever seen. TLOU 2 story is garbage" - All they can do is assert, without reason. Meanwhile the accolades and objectives measures for succcess and quality keep flooding in for this game and Naughty Dog. Huge congratulations. One of the best games i've ever played.
Naughty Dog are winners. Idiots like to bring winners down, so they attack. Then the herd gets brave and attacks too, because they feel safe. Of course, it's all in vain, because quality shines through. Most people appreciate that and don't partake in mob mentality. That said, I can understand why some fans genuinely didn't feel this one like the first. For me, it was yet another example of brilliance and left me wanting more from these talented devs!
It’s all just opinions. That’s fair I can totally see why some people would really like it.
"That’s fair I can totally see why some people would really like it." So you find it "Fair" to say that "Some" people would "Really like" the most awarded game in video game history? Are you saying that a game with 94% meta-average, numerous game of the year awards, best selling ps exclusive of all time (First week debut sales) is more "hated" than "liked"? Ease up on the colteastwood videos man...
