GTA V wins GOTY, but fans wanted The Last of Us

In an overwhelming sense of inevitability, GTA V has won the Game of the Year award at Spike’s VGX over the weekend. Many thought this would happen, but it looks like a lot of you are not happy with the decision. As good a game that GTA V undoubtedly is, we have seen plenty of feedback which suggests that The Last of Us from Naughty Dog should have won instead.

While Naughty Dog may have missed out on the grand prize, they came up with the next best thing, by winning the prestigious Studio of the Year award – beating Rockstar in the process.

We certainly are not surprised to see GTA V win the award after so much hype, but it is very surprising to see just how much support there has been for Naughty Dog’s game The Last of Us. We’ve heard all sorts of response on how ‘the awards were rigged’, but at the end of the day both respective developers have come out with great awards.

What do some fans think of GTA V winning over The Last of Us though? Just take a look for yourself:

Did you tune into the show live? If so, let us know if you think GTA V is a worthy winner or not. Has the recent problems with GTA Online contributed to the growing support for The Last of Us perhaps?
