According to online tracker gameawards.net, The Last of Us Part 2 is the first game to ever receive 300 Game of the Year awards, making it the most awarded game in history.
The online tracker looks at Game of the Year awards from both media outlets and reader’s choice awards, and with the combination of those two, The Last of Us Part 2 is now standing at a mighty 300 Game of the Year awards. The only other game to get that close is The Witcher 3, which has 280 awards according to the tracker.
This milestone puts it far ahead of other titles released in 2020, with Hades and Ghost of Tsushima both sitting below it at 63 awards each, and Cyberpunk 2077 further below at 35 awards.
The Last of Us Part 2 now stands above such titans as The Witcher 3 and God of War, which had 280 and 260 Game of the Year awards respectively. The Last of Us Part 2 already managed to overtake The Witcher 3 late last year through reader’s choice awards, but it has now managed to overtake it in media outlet awards too.
If you only consider the awards from media outlets, the most awarded game of all time is actually the original The Last of Us, which has 199 awards. The Last of Us Part 2 sits at third place in that list, with 192 awards, placing it just below Breath of the Wild’s
Meanwhile looking at the reader’s choice awards data shows us that The Last of Us Part 2 currently sits at 108 awards, putting it in first place and far ahead of the first game, which got 58. This tells us that the sequel’s massive lead is partially due to reader’s choice, and not just because of its critical reception.
With such massive success, it should probably come as no surprise that Naughty Dog is apparently remaking the first game in the series for PS5. It was also recently revealed that DLC might have been in the works for the sequel at some point but has since been shelved.
