Game of the Year

After a very successful night for Naughty Dog, The Last of Us Part 2 received one final accolade: the Game of the Year award. The PlayStation 4 exclusive, which was released back in June, went up against Hades, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, The Ghost of Tsushima, Doom Eternal, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake for the coveted title.


Back when it was first released, TLOU 2 was met with controversy and mixed reviews as some players believed that the game included "LGBTQ propoganda." Still, its controversies are just about its only measurable flaw, since TLOU 2 otherwise received rave reviews regarding its touching story and state-of-the-art graphics. Plus, Naughty Dog took TLOU 2's finale in a completely different direction than what fans had expected, which made it a huge conversation topic within the gaming industry and among players. TLOU 2 pushed the boundaries of the action/adventure genre, and that definitely played a role in its Game of the Year win.
