Added a key to the OP to indicate which award meets which criteria. Should make it easier for people to filter the list and determine an overall winner based on their own criteria. For example, the TLOU2's Golden Joystick win is a public poll, while Hades' is the awards show win based on a jury/panel.

TLOU Part 2 is GameCrate's GOTY.


Metacritic / jury-based Awards show list tally is now:

  1. Hades - 6
  2. The Last of Us Part II - 5
  3. Final Fantasy VII Remake - 2
  4. Half-Life: Alyx / Dreams / Ghost of Tsushima - 1
Spoiler: show













































It's upto The Last of Us Part 2 and Cyberpunk 2077 to take that crown away from Witcher 3.
eh....2019 = The Last of Us 2 vs Cyberpunk 2077.


Turns out, GOTY is actually The Last of Us 2 vs Hades. Yikes Cyberboyz, yiiiikes!!

Also, good to see that Necrokiller sees worth in the overall GOTY tally, not just the Metacritic certified one. Noted.

Game Informer's top 10 so far:
Seems like it's either of Hades or TLOU2 at #1.

it didn'tt met the qualifications for nominations list for 2020
Yup, it didn't meet the deadline for The Game Awards. It got nominated for IGN and a few other site's GOTY. Was also an honorable mention in GameCrate's GOTY list.

    with probably reduced number of rays per pixel and such under the hood cut backs

  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Metro only has RTGI so obviously the console version will have that.

    no unlocked mode is a drawback, you get what you get

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    lets see if 4A delivers
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    they likely made engine improvements as well so all things considered the console output is about as expected. Full RT suite was never gonna happen
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    yes, the benchmarks you shared which showed how a 2060 is reportedly trailing behind in the 1440p/60 FPS mode, and we can't do a proper RT comparison because you can't unlock th FPS on console to see what kind of overhead there is :p

    i just showed the benchmarks, but whatever i guess

    not with RT and DLSS off at least :p

    but looks like 2060 is pulling above its weight with North Light engine
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    that a $500 console is able to be in reach of a 2080/3080 is an incredible thing in itself
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    there can't be universal equivalent since every engine performs differently
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    we dont know if the settings are equivalent but the results vary with every developer, there's no universal equivalency right now
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    Gears 5 on X reportedly runs same spec as 2080. The Medium runs with DRS from 1440p to 4K on X which is equivalent to 3060Ti to 3080 on a linear scale
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    this is all also assuming that base settings are all maxed
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    lets see if performance mode can stick to a stable 60fps, or if its variable
    Link
  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    1220p is such an arbitrary number, I have to imagine its just to ensure there are no drops from 30.
