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.
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.
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.
