Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Is the Most Awarded Game in Recorded History by Critics

The Last of Us beats out Skyrim.  Yeah, this game should have won VGA's Game of the Year.

It's odd; almost every review of GTA vs. that company's review of TLoU listed the former as higher, but the latter gains all the awards. I feel like it's a posterity thing: Because TLoU is older, we forget somewhat about the problems it (allegedly, according to some people) had, and give it awards based on memorable moments. That's exactly why BioShock 1 won GotY; it was an entirely mediocre game solidified in history because of the ending and because of the launch timing vs. Uncharted 1.

Very political, this industry is. Had BioShock Infinite launched in August, GotY would have been a LOT closer, based on past trends.
