Well, this year’s winner also brought several controversies as well. Naughty Dog’s sequel to its 2013 mega-hit title also became quite problematic for many. And on top of this, the Golden Joystick Awards event totally made Ghost of Tsushima fans furious. Because they think that it surely deserved to win the Game of the Year. And also in the Best Storytelling section.

But the victory of The Last of Us 2 has irked most of the Tsushima lovers. As per fans, the title is more worthy of picking Ultimate Game of the Year and Storytelling awards. The Sucker Punch release recently went past the sales figure of 5 million earlier this month. Sadly, it didn’t get any trophies in Gamesradar’s event.
