Look up on whose websites giving these GOTY for that year, unlike 2020. Almost all of main media website participated in giving BOTW and Witcher 3 their GOTY. Then you look at 2020 and sees a fucking tiny blogs personal GOTY being count on the pedestal.

Keep being delusional. Even with some googling you could already got out of your fantasy land but you don't.


Look up on who the 70 judges are for TGA. A literal fucking joke of a list.
Its the same websites, some websites post ranked list in a year and unranked list in others years, but most of them is in all those years, where is the receipts? you are saying but not proofing, you are trying too hard, you see what you want, will not change the reality.

It's all a joke, all rigged, stop the count

Most of the mainstream outlets are there but what games did they chose for 2020 vs past years all time GOTY, divisive or not? What about those tiny websites sprouting like mushrooms?

Oh my fucking God it's not. Mainstream outlets are still there but obviously their votes are divisive as fuck. While tiny blogs got their votes counted in and with articles titled "My personal Game of the Year : TLoU Part II"

2015 are even more mainstream compared to 2017, but at least 2017 still have its prestige from who votes for what, you could recognize most of those outlets just from their names.

:messenger_tears_of_joy: Oh man that is hillarious
interesting, I beat the game twice and haven't seen a single, even tiniest bug. Some slightly janky pickup animations but other than that it was technically flawless on day one patch.

edit: lol did you just quote yourself to give yourself a pat in the back for the previous post or sth went wrong switching to an alt? :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Yep. Noticed this too. Some sjw's decided to make 100s of new crappy sites and all of them coincidentally gave lasofthem2 10/10 and of course Metacritic accepted all of them and then deleted 1000s of real player reviews. Just pathetic. Too obviously metcritic got a big sum from doggystudio.

Masterpiece!

My Xbox loving colleague was swallowing all those salty tears and he developed both an ulcer and and bloody diarhea from all the sodium and seeing this game collect all these GOTY prices. :goog_confounded:

My longtime PCMR friend was port pegging so hard, that now begging is all he can do, he sits outside the corner 7-eleven now. :lollipop_anxious_sweat:

Clearly don't know what you're talking about. Witcher 3 only won 250 GOTY awards b/c of some smaller sites too. They don't count one man blogs either or personal lists. It's right in their rules.

At least some of those votes must be from people who wanted to stick it to [the wankers] who were butthurt by a muscular woman, the early death of a genocidal maniac and unlooked for homosexuality~

This must be the 10,000th game to introduce a new main character in a sequel, and 20,000th game to highlight the sexual characteristics of characters, but apparently this one is the one that we really just can't handle. I guess because new sexual subcultures are getting airtime outside the horny blonde soldier, thong'd thic anime babeasaurus, and so on.

There are really just a lot of people out there who aren't as thoughtful as Arial font makes them seem.

I'm genuinely shocked that Demon's Souls wasn't higher on the list. It's the best launch game ever.

Weird.
That's because it isn't just the greatest game of the year it's the greatest game of all time.
I know you're kidding but still UGH

And why does Witcher 3 winning 250 GOTY awards invalidates what I'm saying from the last post? We're talking about mainstream websites here with clear legacies on their part. The GOTY can be inflated AF and all of the could be smaller websites too, so the mainstream are what we should be focusing here.

Just look up on these unknown websites and see how many of them actually works as a working publication site. It's not a one man's blog but what I'm quoting here - "My personal Game of the Year" is a literally the title from one of them.

And I wouldn't touch on them being biased on certain aspects, cherry picking websites to include. It's been like that since 2018.

Haven't given it a shot yet... but will (I own it.)

TLOU was not for me, so my expectations are low, but I'll at least enjoy the obvious talent on display.

Even sjw People hate it lol.
I personally think it's incredible emotional roller coaster and great gameplay. The pacing can be too slow.
Many haters who can't look behind stupid sjw leaks and "ooh where is my fan service"

"Well deserved, Good taste and high quality rewarded. GOTY without question."

Very much agree. The one game that made all others look like games outdated flashy children shenanigans.
The one game that truly exceeded all others in every possible aspect. I think there is no need to praise Naughty Dog for their technical brilliance, because everyone knows they are the best.

And even for those they somehow didn't get along with TLOU2 there were plenty of other decent games in 2020. Great year.

Congratulations The Last of Us 2, Naughty Dog and especially Neil Druckmann

If you think they are cherry picking websites then please go find all of the ones they are leaving off just so TLOU2 is the clear winner. Good luck finding any of them. You're going to have to pull them out of that fantasy land you reside in.

Men lie women lie numbers don't. The people have spoken. Accept it.
How many people played one vs the other? I’m assuming LOU2 has maybe 100x more players

EDIT: yeah I just looked it up, 17 million people bought Last of us 2. Alyx sold 680k. It’s not even comparable.

I thought it was fine - the gameplay is great there just isn’t enough of it imo. The rest of it is like, fine tho - preferred the first one story wise. I felt like Ellie’s half was just far too long and not enough action encounters. I’m actually fairly surprised it was as controversial as it was. All of my friends who’ve played it just got kinda bored by the game. I thought it was good just not nearly like game of the generation or something. I mean to me God Of War was A LOT better just as far as recent PS4 games go. I will say the last level in the game as Ellie at the compound was really good.

Damn, Reddit and Quartering's Club gave up after the VGAs.

I mean have you seen what the Quatering looks like or his videos?

Dude looks like he gives the least amount of effort required in all aspects of his live.

As for Metacritic, it's a trash website filled with bots, crazed stans, and haters that make all their user reviews pointless. And for their critic reviews, they provide no where near the same level of transparency as Rotten Tomatoes. I mean to this day we don't know how Metacritic weighs certain top reviewers in regards to an average score.

Your data is wrong. TLOU2 has sold around 4m copies. The sales data you provided was for the original game.

My bad 4 million in what 3 days? So what’s the total now I can’t find the actual number - regardless far far more people were able to play it vs Alyx.

It sold 4m in a few days. Based on NPD charts, both TLOUpt2 and Ghost have sold between 5 and 8 million by now.

It's a Sony game. They always go 50% off pretty quickly.

I bought it from Amazon a while back, but waiting for a PS5 patch to dive in.
Yeah they really do I just bought miles morales for 40 bucks on ps5 - I was pretty surprised.

Seems like (give or take a bit) wait 3 months = 25% discount, wait 6 months = 50% discount, wait 1.5 ~ 2 years and get it at revised $19.99 MSRP.

TLOU2 sold more than 4 million at launch. If you think the game is still only at 4 million you're delusional. Probably between 7-10 million by now considering it has still been in sales charts and it's in the best selling games of 2020 list.

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.

It's a testament to this forum that this clown is still here spewing this far left tripe everywhere. I'm intrigued where did you come from all of a sudden? Did the other place show you the door?.
