When you find out every player's vote combined only accounts for 10% of the end result for GoTY you begin to realise the ability to vote as a player was an empty gesture that was never meant to matter.

Ori is massively under appreciated, it deserved to be nominated for goty

Good to see you back on the couch together, mates. Still great chemistry. I've laughed out loud (to the detriment of my relationship with my gf) a bunch. Thanks for putting this up; I couldn't watch it live because I was working.

You two, together, are absolutely my favorite YTers. Separately, I still watch everything (and like everything) you do, but together: so fetch. Thanks for making my night. Cheers.

I thought Maneater was going to be the game of the year. This award show was so rigged 😂

Players choice is the real winner, the people have spoken!! This year it was the most predictable game awards show ever.

Doom Eternal for me is game of the year. Played it pretty much since it came out. It made lockdown at least fun, 5 Awards for The Last of US Part 2 is stupid. Only good part about that game is pretty much the Gore system

Got to love Hello games. They may have had a rough start but they have turned their game into something amazing.

"The Last of Us 2 was bolder and you have to appreciate that"
Well... Yes and no
Something can be bold and bad, those are not mutually exclusive.
All their boldness here makes me say is "Why the hell did you make things so hard on yourself to deliver so little in the end ?"
This is no indie game boldness where I'm in awe of what they are trying to achieve with their limited resources.
Here, all the boldness reeks of the over-indulgence and condescension

There's nothing that illustrates my point more than the comaprison between TLOU2 lead and HADES leads reacting to them being in the game awards GOTY:
HADES lead: thankful to the players
TLOU lead: vote for us to make dem haterz mad!!!!!!

Sorry, but I'll pass on their "boldness"

The Last of Us was one of my favourite games of all time

The Last of Us Part 2 was one of my most forgettable games I’ve ever played
Nihal Riaz
Nihal Riaz:
I agree with sam on this one. Death stranding was highly decisive even though it was bold. Same thing with the last of us, except it is even less bold. Ghost of tsushima was a better product overall and should have won.
Michael Oswalt
Michael Oswalt:
1:47:53 as an Elite player, its adorable hearing Ralph talk about it. Definitely a lovable game but it was hard to recommend for the last year or so as it was somewhat dead in terms of events. Now that Frontier are doing story and community events leading up to Odyssey, its a great time to get into it. Definitely remember it is an MMO and get involved in a community. Playing Elite solo is doing it a disservice.
Dan Ambroziak
Dan Ambroziak:
We already knew there was an unbridgable divide between games media and people who actually play games, this just confirms it.
Helios007
Helios007:
The fact that Doom Eternal lost Music and Audio Design is a joke. I get maybe losing to FF7 in Music (although a remake beating an original product is silly) but losing Audio Design to TLOU2? Ridiculous...
Der_NiP
Der_NiP:
I often hear "it was bold" and "it tried something" in regard to TLOU 2. That in an of itself is meaningless if the End product is just not good. I heard the same Arguments I hear for TLOU 2 for The Last Jedi, and it was just straight up a horrible Movie.
Lawrence Gillespie
Lawrence Gillespie:
I think they did a great job putting on a virtual game awards show, regardless if you agree with which games won the awards. Also, it's fun watching along on this channel.
drugMATE
drugMATE:
Whatever. These events don't matter anyhow. What is considered a classic and how big of an influence will it leave on the industry is not determined by the critics, but by fans.
Tyler Wood

I love how entertained we all are with The Swedish Chef.

Watching this now since I had to decide between Laymen and AJS for who to watch it live with this year. Angry Joe won out this year. At least he didn't disappoint. 😁

I've missed you Ralph, it's not the same without you there to rip into Sam on the casting couch haha

You could be looking at Horizon 2, God of War 2, Cyberpunk and Breath of the Wild 2. It might be the most stacked year ever for Game Awards.

Agree with Sam. Everybody (even reviewers) love GOT but people are extremely divided about TLOU2.

What does it mean to be the game of the year? By my estimation, it’s a combination of smashed sales target as well as the most unanimously positive reception. You look at the accolades surrounding TLOU2 and you wouldn’t be able to tell people didn’t like it. All the negative press gave it free publicity. I reserved judgement until I knew more instead of being one of those dumbasses that review bombed it and not played it. I didn’t buy it. I watched a playthrough of the first and it was good. This second one sounded like it was full of “that should not have happened by any stretch of the narrative” so I didn’t subject myself to it. The only people who didn’t like TLOU2 was half the audience. And it outsold Ghost of Tsushima by like 2.6 ish million copies. If you’re going to hate on a game, be sure to use bullets that can’t be blocked by a sheet of paper.

Guys 90% of the Game Awards vote is critics and 10% is gamers.
Drake PT
Drake PT:
This was really disappointing, for many reasons, but most was last of us part 2 shouldn't have won half of the awards that did win, there were more deserving games. Especially game of the year, a game that divide the public should not be game of the year. This shows more and more that the critics do not represent the public. And the public vote should be more than 5 percent.
Dorin Alexandru
Dorin Alexandru:
There is this new trend of teasing the game and not hear anything about it for 4-5 years. Who came up with that?
Mark Williams
Mark Williams:
I can't believe the Last of Us II getting GOTY with all of the other amazing games that came out this year that were far superior in everything other than graphics maybe.

Imagine believing that the few manchildren that couldn't take a game not being what they wanted could be able to destroy the credibility of a game show for rewarding a game that broke all record and is loved by the vast majority of players.

I can't wait for Naughty Dog's next game so I can watch "Naughty Dog Presents: Our Next Game of the Year Awards Show"

TLOU2 did not deserve this over Ghosts of Tsushima. It didn't even release a multiplayer this year and GoT multiplayer alone is more compelling than TLOU2.
Tyler Wood
Tyler Wood:
Thank you for not being in love with that actual-goat Eddie Vedder. He's great - legendary - but he's not "interrupt the Laymen"-good.
RELAXcowboy
RELAXcowboy:
The issue is both sides of the field KNEW TLoU was going to win. That’s the issue. Even the people who just didn’t like the game knew it was going to win.

I hope Cherami Leigh gets at least a nomination next year for female V's voice acting.
Joseph Abrams
Joseph Abrams:
3:02:51 I actually don’t think TLOU2 deserves it for direction if you account for the crunch the employees went through. From a strictly creative standpoint? Maybe, but based off of everything else in its development I don’t agree with legitimizing it’s crunch cycle. There’s a good article on Kotaku about it.

best OST should go to Doom. It's not only fantastic but also smart, layered, interactive and adaptive. Beyond more advanced than any other game that just plays music on que.
Smash aka pedo game of the decade...
Vlad the3rd
Vlad the3rd:
Problem was that GOT was a better ‘game’ then TLOU but it lost to the TLOU because it was more ‘artistic’ and in a award that looks at the best game this shouldn’t happen ... think of a game winning and Oscar ... ah well my game of the year is what matters to me and that was Doom Eternal

streamers can be content creators but it is always not the case. great content creator examples are scott the woz, GVMERS, keef, alanah,they make content that you can watch at any time. i can't say the same to people who just play and then stream while reading the chat and not paying attention to the actual game.
Marc Edmundo
Marc Edmundo:
Last Of Us 2 is a gaming journalist "moist" dream product. Hated by the general public, millions of paid customer gamers, and numerous gaming influencers. Comedic madness.
Petforces
Petforces:
I think divisiveness is a factor. If 40% of people love something, and then 40% hate it. and 20% say its ok. Vs a game that 75% of people love. 20% hate and 5% say meh. The game with 75% should be the winner over the other game.
Liquid Knives
Liquid Knives:
You can be daring and still win as long as the story and other factors are good and makes sense. Which the TLOU2 sucks at.
French Noodles

Skill up: "we need a balance between professionals and fans" so 90% professionals vs 10% fans is a balanced process?

And no fucking Elden Ring thank GOD i did not watch the whole 2 hours i lost maybe 25 mins+.

Abbie for Smash sounds like a fantastic idea.
Derek Clair
Derek Clair:
The problem is that The Game Awards is increasingly becoming the Oscars. It's no longer really about what the best game is. It's about a good game that also has the bullshit Academy "X-factor", and there are bonus points given for SJW themes (real or implied). This is the reason the divisive Death Stranding failed to win GOTY 2019 but the even more divisive TLOU2 won in 2020
RELAXcowboy

That dragon game reminds me of the PS3 launch game that was all about the sixaxis control.

Again with these streams I can't hear half of what you guys are saying because you have the stream too loud. If I cared about hearing the trailers and talking heads I would watch their stream. I came for you two and would love if you turned on closed captioning and mixed the stream way down so I can hear you.

Like Sam says, it shouldn't be a popularity contest. But at the end of the day, it did not deserve to win most of the awards it ended up winning. It certainly shouldn't have won goty. It most certainly shouldn't have won best story or action/adventure. That's why everyone is angry. This was rigged from the start and proved its nothing more than participation awards.

Ahhh, the LOU2 has been politicized EXACTLY the same way they tried to maximize profits on Ghostbusters (2016) or Captain Marvel or etc etc. If you don’t like our (objectively awful) piece of art, you must be a bad person and an incel or you’ve been red pilled. How dare you criticize our profit maximizing endeavors! Years from now, no one will claim LOU2 was a good game (well, other than the political hacks who never played the game). If you need to resort to political attacks to defend your art then you never had good art to begin with. LOU2 isn’t the worst game ever made but the only reason this deeply flawed, unintentionally comedic game gets so many accolades is because of politics. Activists defending corporate profits because of messaging is the ultimate irony.

10:58 I think The Last of Us II has a lot of hype carried over that blinds people. I was going to say politics may have played a role, it's kind of the poster child of the progressive left, but I don't think they have a large base, not large enough to make a significant impact at least. It was just heavily promoted by traditional games media. I've seen so many people really struggle to get through the game. Either they were bored, thought the characters were shit, or were angry at the amount of times they died to jumping in the direction they didn't want.
It seems pretty mediocre. Not something that would win awards constantly.

Yeah, i also feel like the last of us 2 is way over rated. Lots of people do, sadly some people love it, look at Hollywood, makes crap all the time that people love for some reason, but that is way over rated for what it is. That is life i guess, i just do not feel it is game of the year good, at all.
Merlindo

The Last Of Us 2 won because game jornalists declared war against a certain portion of the gaming comunity, this is really not fair against those other games, FF7R or Ghost should have won...

So the bought critics who don't know what gamers like voted for tlou2 and not GoT? Shocking. Who the hell gives a shit about critics anymore? They are out of touch, out of mind activists, not critics. Their opinion is essentially worthless nowadays.
