The Game Awards 2018 event took place last night and the critically acclaimed God of War has won the “Game of the Year” award. The game is developed by Sony’s own Santa Monica developer studio and it’s a PlayStation 4 exclusive title. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the only other game that could rival God of War for the GOTY title and even though it didn’t win this title, the studio in charge of Red Dead Redemption 2 did go home with four awards.
God of War Wins Game of the Year
Everyone thought that God of War is going to win the GOTY title when it launched, but everything changed when Red Dead Redemption 2 came out. Red Dead Redemption 2 put up a tough fight, but in the end, the GOTY award was won by God of War.
The amazing thing about this is that God of War is a PlayStation 4 exclusive title which shows us how much Sony invests in games. We have to give it to Sony because God of War is so good that it has made many Xbox One fans leave their consoles to collect dust and purchase a PlayStation 4 instead.
Red Dead Redemption Wins Four Titles
Even though Red Dead Redemption didn’t get the GOTY award, the game still won four awards. Roger Clarke who is the voice actor for Arthur Morgan (the protagonist) won “Best Performance award, Woody Jackson and Daniel Lanois won “Score and Best Audio” awards and the development studio also won the “Best Narrative” award.
Tough Fight for the GOTY Award
This year edition of the Game Awards had to be toughest one yet. God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 are two of the best games ever released for console and picking a winner between these two games proved to be a challenging task.
