As closer to 2020, this week has been a long week with PSLS awards at the turn of the year, and we have honored many great releases. Although games did not win, it is only being nominated that draws attention to games that deserve the spotlight, and there were also many other honorable mentions that did not even make the nomination list. 2020 was a fantastic year for games around, and it has all built up to this moment. Before we reveal which game won our top spot, here are PlayStation LifeStyle nominations for Game of the Year 2020.
This year’s game 2020 winner
The Last of Us del II
Read our review.
The reflection of the nominations and close votes from our best PlayStation Exclusive award, our game of the year also goes to Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us del II. We have already said a lot about The Last of Us del II throughout our award ceremony, so let this quote from our review tell you why it’s worth taking the top spot this year:
It is an empathic emotional journey that recontextualizes the idea of the hero at the center of the story through new perspectives and unique methods of storytelling that only video games are capable of. It is a versatile experience with symmetry, details and teams that players will discuss for years. Polish values and production values not only meet the level of Naughty Dog quality that players have expected. The Last of Us del II is an age-determining game, a perfect companion to the first that harmonizes with, rather than crushes, the original central ending, creating an unforgettable and emotionally challenging narrative with these beloved characters. ”
