The Last Of Us Part 2 was crowned Best Game of the Year 2020 at the Game Awards 2020 ceremony, which took place on the night of Friday, December 11, 2020. The contenders were quite numerous and prestigious, with in particular the excellent Hades, Ghost of Tsushima or Doom Eternal.
The Game Awards ceremony took place on the night of Friday, December 11, 2020. The event quickly became a staple in the video game industry. This year, the health crisis requires, the Game Awards 2020 were held behind closed doors, without an audience. Despite everything, the atmosphere was still good, with great announcements and unexpected trailers.
Thus, we had the right to Mass Effect, Dragon Age 4 and a new Perfect Dark! Nostalgia when you hold us. But of course, the vocation of the Game Awards is to reward the crème de la crème of video games. Unsurprisingly, the brilliant and controversial The Last of Us Part 2 was named Best Game of the Year 2020.
The competition was however tough to win the palm, with excellent titles like the nervous Doom Eternal, the exotic Ghost of Tsushima, the demanding and enjoyable Hades (go for it if you haven’t), Final Fantasy VII Remake or again the restful Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo’s flagship game which was particularly successful during confinement.
The Last of Us Part II leaves with seven prizes!
Naughty Dog’s game did not just get the award for Best Game of the Year 2020. Indeed, the title developed by Neil Druckmann and his teams came away with the award for Best Direction, Best Sound Design, Best Accessibility, Best Screenplay, and Best Performance with a prize awarded in particular to Laura Bailey, the formidable interpreter of Abby, Ellie’s nemesis in this opus.
It must be said that in this category, Laura Bailey was in competition with Ashley Johnson, alias Ellie. This further confirms the incredible acting quality of the title. Regarding the price of accessibility, it is true that the Naughty Dog teams have worked hard to make The Last of Us Part 2 accessible to as many people as possible. Blind or visually impaired players, deaf or hard of hearing, or struck by a motor handicap can take advantage of dozens of configurable options to enjoy the title in the best conditions. An example, which we hope will be followed by the video game industry in the future.
