The Last of Us: Part II has picked up another accolade – well, eight of them to be precise. Naughty Dog’s sublime sequel netted PS4 Game of the Year in the community voted PS Blog poll, and this year an eye-watering 2.5 million votes were cast in total. That’s a quite phenomenal statistic really, and a new record for the official website.
To be honest, it’d be more efficient for us to talk about the awards The Last of Us: Part II didn’t win, but first let’s roll off Naughty Dog’s list of accolades:
Best Accessibility Features
Best Graphical Showcase
Best Sound Design
Gaming Moment of the Year
PS4 Game of the Year
Studio of the Year
So, what’s left? Well, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales picked up PS5 Game of the Year and Best New Character, while Fall Guys swooped in with Best Indie Game. Star Wars: Squadrons won Best PSVR Experience, while Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 grinded out Best Sports Game. Ghost of Tsushima won Best Art Direction, while Call of Duty: Warzone infiltrated Best Multiplayer.
You can view the full list of winners – including all of the runners-up – through here. Just so you know, our own Game of the Year coverage will be getting underway in under a week, so keep an eye out for that.
