Pretty impressive that God of War overtook Zelda in awards while staving off tough competition from Red Dead Redemption 2.

Well, let's not forget that 2017 was an incredible tough year in terms of competition as well. Persona 5, Resident Evil 7, Gravity Rush 2, Ni-Oh, and many other amazing games.

Well deserved.

I'm just nearing the end of the game at the moment and it's been a fantastic journey. Really redeemed not only Kratos but the franchise as a whole.

Good for them! I was a bit surprised when GoW started winning category after category this year. It wasn't my GOTY but hey, it's a good game. And I'm kind of glad they didn't just go the easy route with RDR2.

TLOU got 247 awards in the year of Bioshock Infinite and GTA5. Its madness. I shudder to think where it would have ended up in any other year.
It's worth mentioning though that there were wayyyyyy more awards counted that year than any other year. It doesn't touch 247 if the blog was more strict with it's counting that year like it has been since.

It still would've easily reached over 200 though with that competition which is still insanely impressive. Just trying to paint the full picture.

Love to Sony Santa Monica, they did the impossible with God of War and delivered on every aspect of the monumental chapter in Kratos's life!
Exactly. A franchise that never had a game win more than 7 GOTY awards I believe and now is seen as one of the best games of all time and has amassed 190 with more to come still. Cory and the team did something that few others can do. Turn a stale franchise around and make people who hated a franchise fall in love with it.
