With a staggering total of 137 game of the year awards, it’s safe to say that PlayStation exclusive, The Last of Us Part II, is the landslide game of the year for 2020.

Ghost of Tsushima (21)

  • IGN Middle East (AE)
  • GameSpark Readers’ Choice (JP)

A total of 21 wins for Ghost of Tsushima to be nominated for game of the year is definitely impressive, but while it is a PlayStation exclusive, it couldn’t even compare to the 100+ awards that The Last of Us Part II won.

Final Fantasy VII Remake (12)

  • IGN Japan (JP)
  • Reno Gazette-Journal (US)
  • GamingBolt (US)

  • TheSixthAxis (UK)
  • JagatPlay (ID)
  • Siliconera (US)
  • (NO)

The long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake ended the year with a pretty solid number of game of the year nominations with a total of 12! Unfortunately still not enough to beat out The Last of Us Part II, but it still managed to get PlayStation an extra 12 nominations for a total of 141 votes (Spider-Man Miles Morales got a single vote from KGUN 9)! What do you think? Did Sony deserve to win all of these awards? What games would you have liked to see be nominated for game of the year?
