The only game coming close is Rockstar’s GTA V with 126 (95 critic – 31 reader). Bioshock Infinite only managed to gather 34 awards, Super Mario 3D World just 10, and so on. I guess that you can add one more, since I personally voted for The Last of Us in our own version of the GOTY Awards; funnily, I’ve also put GTA V in the second place.

Needless to say, after The Last of Us I’m thrilled for Naughty Dog’s upcoming Uncharted title: I fully expect it to show the real power of PlayStation 4.

    Over 200 GOTY awards? Deservingly so. It was game of the generation. IMO

    • Dakan45

      why?

      If you dont care about the story and the characters you reallize it sucks.

      • V8Supercar1

        Stories and characters are a big part of games. A well written story makes a game a lot less cheesy. A lot of people including myself also loved the gameplay. But if characters and story is the strength of your game, there is nothing wrong with that.

        • Dakan45

          excuse me for playing games for gameplay and still replaying old games for good gameplay. You know old games that levels werent linear, that you could expirement a bit, that had replay value, that weapons felt powerfull and unique.

          • V8Supercar1

            I know what you mean. I’ve been gaming since the 8-bit nes era. In this day and age though, some of the best games I’ve played involved great characters and great story as well as great gameplay. Metal Gear Solid series, The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, and The Last of us. With TLOU you can beat the game using different strategies. I’ve even known a player that beat it without shooting much at all.

            • Dakan45

              honestly the first 4 hours were borring.

  • John Johnson

    over 90% of them I have never heard of
