The Game Awards took place last month and if you were watching very, very carefully, you might have noticed some awards were handed out. The three-and-a-half-hour show was jam-packed with a lot of reveals and a boatload of ads, but the awards themselves were rushed a little. On the bright side, the Game Of The Year award, the most important one of the night, did get the spotlight it deserved.
It also went to the very deserving It Takes Two. A co-op game that has breathed new life into the genre. Geoff Keighley isn't the only one with a GOTY award to give out though, of course. Even though 2021 is now behind us, the GOTY awards for last year are still rolling in. It Takes Two developers Hazelight Studios reminded us of that after receiving even more awards since being named GOTY at TGA.
“Seeing #ItTakesTwo continue to receive so many awards and love from all over the world is truly heartwarming,” Hazelight tweeted on Sunday. As for where It Takes Two stands right now, it has currently racked up 69 GOTY awards from various outlets according to Game Of The Year Awards Tracker. Honestly, that's no real surprise. What is surprising is the game currently chasing It Takes Two's tail in a distant second.
Resident Evil Village currently has the second-most GOTY awards with 49. No offense intended to the latest installment in the Resident Evil series, but many might argue a few other games that launched in 2021 probably deserve that silver medal. Deathloop, Metroid Dread, and Guardians of the Galaxy, just to throw out a few examples. All three are currently in the top ten, but none looks like it'll be surpassing Village anytime soon.
69 GOTY awards is quite the achievement, and that number will likely be closer to three figures by the time every trophy is tallied up. What the co-op game won't be doing is surpassing the record set by The Last Of Us Part 2 in 2020. 317 GOTY awards by the time all was said and done. It's also a crime that The Forgotten City currently has just the one GOTY award, the one we awarded it.
