One of the top recognition bodies and prestigious awarding ceremonies for all things gaming is finally done in naming its chosen top notchers, which contributed a lot to 2020's gaming landscape. The emergence of the coronavirus's global pandemic indeed made gaming one of the country's current largest platform.

Additionally, online gaming expanded even more as people got more time participating in live matches in massively multiplayer games like battle royale and MMORPG. Streamers also grew this year as more audiences are available to watch at home with only an internet-capable device to participate.

'The Last of Us Part II': Dominating The Golden Joystick Awards 2020

One game in the awarding ceremony stood out, and that is Naughty Dog's "The Last of Us Part II." The 2020 sequel of the action-adventure and drama genre is based on 2013's original release focused on two zombie apocalypse survivors.

The most loved game from seven years ago got its most awaited release this year only, giving Ellie a chance to showcase her life on the game's screens after surviving various zombie attacks with Joel. The two survivors have their life narrated by "The Last of Us Part II," which got a massive following and fanbase on its release.
