Not surprised when you have someone like Greg Miller who says Gone Home was his favorite game last year but that he was voting for TLOU for GOTY at 9GN

#10 Edited by Seabas989 (9651 posts) -

lol 9GN

It was the best game this year. Tomb Raider was 2nd best(IMO). Mass Effect 3 was the best game I played this year.

Well nothing else this year even came close to The Last of Us.

You're right, absolutely nothing in 2014 so far comes close to The Last of Us.

Good on it but the broken AI was enough for me not to enjoy it.

I'm surprised no one was freaked by its harvester bad ending though. Guess it's just an EA thing.

#17 Posted by nyzma23 (841 posts) -

i like last of us the story is grea but the game supposed to played once and then pass it to your friends there is almost no replayability ,i still voted gta v for goty and last of us for best story

Has nothing to do with it being happy or not, if that's your first assumption by what I meant you don't see the issue many people have with the ending of the game.

I felt it was more deserving than GTAV. GTA is GTA to me, great games but more of the same.

#23 Posted by XboxDone74 (1719 posts) -

@nyzma23: to you perhaps. I played the game 4 times through. replayability is subjective.

#24 Edited by senses_fail_06 (6727 posts) -

Thanks Greg <3.

@charizard1605: he's kinda right. even ign said tlou willcontinue to be the game to beat in 2014 and even 2015

#26 Posted by blamix99 (1327 posts) -

LOL FoxbatAlpha and Evo_nine will be really pissed that TLOU won another GOTY. this will make them even more angrier. Congrats again to The Last of Us

#27 Posted by lostrib (26167 posts) -

Not surprising, but looking at some of their other award winners and nominees I don't put much stock in IGN GOTY awards

#28 Edited by blackace (18466 posts) -

@xboxdone74: I'd still take Bioshock Infinite as my game of the year. TLOU was good and is my top 5 games for GOTY. I've played both games.

#29 Edited by AppleFan1991 (2914 posts) -

***POSSIBLE TLOU SPOILERS****

Good choice. I'd be happy with this or Zelda and GTA. All 3 were worthy. As far as the ending, I liked it because it was thought provoking. It wasn't the typical ending of A) everyone dies or B) a miracle cure happens. It was about Joel being more or less selfish and putting his love for Ellie over a possible cure for mankind. It wasn't a bad ending. It was sufficient and thought-provoking

So, basically, out of the main websites GS was the only one going against the wave... I guess they were just afraid of being called PS fanboys for giving GOTY to yet another PS exclusive

#32 Posted by Elpresador-911 (22 posts) -

monsieur jelly. Looks like TLOU is truely the GOAT.

#33 Posted by lundy86_4 (41635 posts) -

Hard to argue. Great game... Pretty decent crowd to beat out this year.

No doubt.

Definitely makes up for what happened last year in terms of the quality of games.

Haha, wow. Now that I read what I put, I should have said 2012. 2012 was terrible. "2013 made up for 2012" is what I meant to say. Wow, I need more sleep haha

But will it blend?

#39 Posted by AtariKidX (6138 posts) -

Gamespot stands foolish amongst rest of the major review sites and industry and the oddball this year.
Instead of the megaton of high scoring games for PC, PS3, 360 etc we got a nostalgic handheld game.
Might as well get iOS and Android in the mix if we doing handheld games like Device 6, Papa Sangre etc.

#43 Posted by Puckhog04 (22568 posts) -

I like seeing people complain about Gamespot giving it to Zelda ALBW. Highly entertaining. Cry more.

You're so fucking stupid it's not even funny.

It's system wars dumbass.

And theres nothing wrong with iOS and Android gaming.

I don't game often on consoles, but The Last of Us was a gem on my PS3. Definitely deserved the win, although the ending was underwhelming.

Congrats dipshit, I never said there's anything wrong with iOS or Android gaming. I'll only entertain your stupidass notion that GameSpot "stands foolish" because they had their own collective opinion away from other sites.

Don't say "we" get a nostalgic handheld game. "We," as in the more unprejudiced, less moronic gamers got a great Zelda game. You, already quite the bastion of nonsensical anti-Nintendo garbage, got nothing because you didn't play it.

Talk about what you know g0ddy. What you don't easily bites you in the ass.

How's the ending shitty? I thought it was completely in character for Joel to do what he did. It was predictable that bad shit was gonna happen when they got to the hospital but nothing wrong with that.

#48 Posted by Heil68 (40448 posts) -

Another GOTY for Naughty Gods. :)

I'm glad GS still has spoiler stuff:

Starting at the hospital and fighting through all of the (I forget what they are so I'll call them the Resistance) Resistance troops felt too backwards from what you were doing the rest of the game where you were either hiding from Infected or killing bandits and vagabonds - these where real people with families and were only trying to do what they believed in (Winter was my favorite part not only because it was a growing period for Ellie, Joel and the player but because you actually felt like you had just accomplished something unbelievable -- I still maintain that Winter is one of the greatest segments ever to be put into a video game, the feelings where almost too much and reuniting Joel and Ellie was sublime.) and you were slaughtering them for your own selfish reasons.

Then comes the doctor sequence where the player is presented with the illusion of choice - which is the absolute worst thing a designer can do in a video game in my mind. To put us in that position is a low-down dirty trick....because at the end of the day and no longer how long you wait the doctor is going to die, Joel is going to pick up Ellie and while leaving kill that women in the parking garage who is also only doing what she believes (trying to save humanity).

So in the end you damn humanity all for the sake of one man who can't stand to lose his daughter...again.

So to go from intriguing in the beginning to very good to damn near perfection in Winter to a slap in the face and being told 'this is the way it is'....is a shit ending.
