Well deserved, Good taste and high quality rewarded. GOTY without question.
It wasn't even close: PS4 exclusive The Last of Us Part II was the favorite 2020 game of Metacritic users by a landslide. We don't compile game critic top 10 lists, but TLOS2 was the #2-ranked game of 2020 by Metascore. Our highest-scoring game of the year, Persona 5 Royal, placed just 13th with our users. And, yes, you'll notice that Cyberpunk 2077 managed to rank third in our user voting. We'll assume that all of those votes were for the PC edition.
1. The Last of Us Part II - 10,194
2. Ghost of Tsushima - 2,079
3. Cyberpunk 2077 - 1,691
4. Hades - 1,510
5. Doom Eternal - 1,062
6. Final Fantasy VII Remake - 1,044
7. Demon's Souls - 818
8. Animal Crossing: New Horizons - 701
9. Ori and the Will of the Wisps - 694
10. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales - 615
11. Assassin's Creed Valhalla - 596
12. Half-Life Alyx - 584
13. Persona 5 Royal - 487

This game will age like fine wine. Will be eventually regarded as a masterpiece when all said and done

It already is except by man children triggered by strong female leads one of which happens to be gay and the other happens to have worked out heavily in order to be an effective killing machine while getting her revenge.

So that's why it's already 50% off.

Yeah the gameplay, brutality and graphics are astounding. Not much else came close based on those facts alone

Are people still going to claim 99% of the best games are on all consoles?

Just goes to show that the overall reception was very positive and the haters were just a vocal minority.

I remember buying the game scared to death thinking Abby would be trans and that it would be a SJW preachfest of a game and was shocked to find out that most of the hysteria was around Joel. Like really?

I think the game has flaws and I would love to discuss them someday but it's hard to do that when one side has completed lost their marbles forcing the other side to dig deep in their trenches pretending this game is the greatest game of all time.

Ghost of Tsushima deserves it more as an overall package in my most humblest of opinions. But there's no denying the quality of Last of Us 2, even if the story doesn't 100% nail it.
Don't like to think of Druckmann sitting there sniffing his own farts and overinflating his already massive ego though.

Isn't TLOU 2 a game on Meta with the most user votes?

Yeah because it was targeted by certain groups. I remember looking at the user score maybe an hour after midnight the night it released and it had like 20,000+ 0/10 scores which doomed any chance it had of having a positive user score on there. Obviously none of those were legit when no one had the ability to play the game by then except reviewers.

Not my choice, but congratulations to ND nonetheless.

Don’t die on this hill. The game, while fantastic, has many flaws. Isn’t just manchildren who disagree with the high scores and praise.

What users? You mean the ones who never played the game and simply went there from places like 4chan and The Quartering to review bomb it. Keep living in your fantasy world where the majority hated the game.
Oh, I'm pretty sure the majority of SJWs who bought it enjoyed it.

At this point it's fair to say that tlou2 has just as many passionate fans that love it, if not more, than those that truly legitimately have valid reasons to not like it.

Meanwhile the current user ratings are around 150k with 76k reviews vs 10 194


It is not possible to currently read the reviews except the 8 of them.


Still congrats with the 10k votes with 50% off bargain bin price.

Lol never knew they also deleted a big amount of negative reviews. So much for these Metacritic users.

Wow.
Ok, how does this work? Serious question.
I always thought Metacritic "best of the year" it's somehow derived from user and critic review score, is this a separate poll they do?

You realize some games are 50% off after like a week or two right? It's normal for a Sony game to be $30 after 6 months. God of War and Spider-Man were the same way. You're also looking at one user poll. The game is winning almost every single one on the internet so maybe you should count the people in every single one of them. Then again speaking common sense to you people is a waste of time.

What a bunch of tossers.
And how is it Cyberpunk even rated so high, honestly?

When you're bragging about winning a measly 10k voted user poll on the super censored website...

Cyberpunk 2077 won almost all of the internet game journalists review too.

Just look up on their best movies, music Metacritic woke polls. A literal fucking joke.
