The big and undisputed winner, in this year's Game of the Year and several other prestigious awards, is the title of action and survival The Last of Us Part 2 - a game that received a huge hug from critics when launched last June but actually encountered a lot of fire from the players themselves Significant compared to the first episode. Also the fact that this game is exclusive to the PlayStation consoles, at a time when most of the big titles are showing a willingness to launch for as much as possible Gamers On as many platforms as possible, it did not really contribute to calming the winds - with various statements that the organizers and Sony deliberately collaborated to emphasize the superiority of the platform from the company.
