OMG so salty here. There is a high chance of TLOUS2 win this GOTY 2020, but if lose to either GoT or AC some people here really gonna lose their minds.
I can assure you there will be more salt if it wins than the other way around, Part II if not here then will get awards from many other places either way.

I liked it a lot... I have no ideia what you are talking about.

GoT is not a GOTY content... it is very very repetitive.
How is The Last of Us II not repetitive? At least in GoT you actually have quests, characters to meet, stories to tell. The Last of Us II is one long chase quest with just kill room after kill room that just never ends. Then forces you to play another 15 hours to see the "true" ending. The game felt all out of order, and paced awful.

I'm really not surprised that the only conclusion people can come to is that the vote was rigged by some 4-chan trolls. That there was no "padding" of the votes for TLOU2, only GoT. Is it really so shocking that early votes, of which the initial pool would have been small, showed a 12% difference between first and second place which narrowed to 3% about 12 hours later with a larger pool of voters? Having a good lead in early votes doesn't mean anything. It's more likely that those who wanted to vote for you just got in earlier. How many people voted for TLOU2 just because it was apparently pro-LGBTQ+? We don't know. We can guess that more than a few did. Should we invalidate those votes? Because I can assure you that if we did the votes for TLOU2 would be a lot lower.

Ghost of Tsushima won. If all you have is barely circumstantial evidence that padding occurred in its favor while hypocritically assuming no such padding existed for a game that is clearly highly charged in social commentaries, then you need to admit that you're just looking for excuses.

Because the gameplay is not repetitive lol
You can play the same room in dozen different ways.

Nope... nobody disagreed until now with what I said about both games.

They disagreed that I believe one is GOTY content and the other not.

Keep going. It's page 7 and I'm sure we still have plenty of tears to extract out of you. 😂


My, this crying from some fanboys about GOT somehow stealing the election from TLOU2 feels hilariously familiar. 😂

okay? So when your manchild of a co president does it; it doesn’t matter?




Nor do u bring up the fact that the official the last of us subreddit does it too? And i’ve only snagged this pic when there were clearly countless of them crying for votes.




Grow up dude. I genuinely feel sorry for you crying over this. You’re entitled to your own opinion but you can’t deny the fact that tlou 2 had some major flaws with its storytelling. Move on.

Exactly.

The thing I don't understand is how anyone could say GoT is "repetitive" when SP added a whole multiplayer/co-op component that no one expected. One that was more extensive then it had any right to be. All while adding additional content to the campaign experience.

The TLOU2 fanatics are making my experience with the game sour, Jesus Christ. You can like the game more than GoT, there's nothing wrong with that. Just like how it's the other way around for other folks, like myself. But that doesn't mean they're in the wrong for their opinion, lmao. No reason to try to 1up a person's opinion, or berate them for it.

I never touched the multiplayer... it was launched months after the game.
The gameplay loop is Cutscene... track the target... fight and kill... repeat.

Anyone got a link to the votes? I need to do my part
You can vote here for the actual Awards.


The Player Choices one is already the final result.

I love how this forum thinks that the gaming community HAAAAAAATES TLOU2 but it managed to get to the number 2 spot in a player choice vote.
Good job TLOU2.

What you described legit sounds more like my experience with TLOU2 rather that GoT, lol.... GoT was legit one of the few games I've ever played period where I completed every single quest. Wild how people's experiences can be so different, but that's the magic of opinions, haha. 🤷‍♂️

I would have picked TLOU2 but at the end of the day I accept the results of a vote. I am not Trump. TLOU 2 still came in second so I am glad.

I just ordered a copy of Ghost of Tsushima. You guys better not be full of shit. The Infamous games ranged from good to so-so.

It’s not in the same realm as TLoU 1, that tells you all you need to know. From 17 million sold to maybe 5 million and a divided fanbase that has made the game a control point in the culture war. They should have just made a quality game and been done with it.

Becoming a point in a culture war does not make something a bad game. The GTA series became that as well and it looks like Cyberpunk 2077 will also be divisive.

There aren't any updated sales numbers so there isn't anything to go on.

Educated guess based on the last hard numbers we had.

No, but it does affect sales. The new left, who rage at GTA and Cyberpunk, are the PMRC/Tipper Gores of the 80’s and 90’s. Do you think Tipper Gore was buying Ice T albums? She just needed a purpose. They are the minority. Regular people will buy the aforementioned games and the left’s toddler rage will boost sales further amongst those who took up the mantle of fighting for freedom of speech.

Correct. It’s a guess based on the last numbers we had. Regardless, the sales pale in comparison to the original game no matter how you cut it.

TLOU1 sold 17 million over the course of seven years. TLOU2 has been out for less than a year.

I just get satisfaction at the idea that Neil Druckmann, despite what he says or how he acts, is actually really upset and burning inside at the thought that people didn't appreciate his all-time masterpiece the way he thought they would. I bet he really thought he was delivering the much longed for "Citizen Kane of videogames"

TLOU2 did record sales at launch... better than original.

In US it is archived the 3rd best selling exclusive game on PS4 in just a month.

I mean the narrative of it selling less than original or having bad sale is just some fantasy I guess.

4 million sold in 3 days... 5 million now? :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy: :messenger_tears_of_joy:

It reached 20m helped by the remaster.

To add on top of my PlayTracker post since a few of you guys are apparently still whinging about 4chan, there was this report from Newzoo that looked at the most played games on the PS5 since Nov 15. Ghost of Tsushima clocked in at 8.1% as the 8th most played game on the platform.

Maybe, just maybe, Ghost of Tsushima won because it had and retained more active players than TLOU2, to the point that it's even among the Top 10 played games on the PS5.

At launch, is the key phrase. It sold off the reputation of the first and the hype leading up to it.

Once word got around about the game and its story, those sales did not continue to climb at the same rate. TLoU2, from a sales perspective, vastly underperformed its predecessor. It was not a hit.
