Game of The Year does not mean any thing. Most games are given GOTY only because of the story. I'll be completely honest, TLOU is the San Andreas of this generation. Yes I haven't played it yet but the fanboys are just extremely annoying. Sure it's a good game but now I'm starting to realize that people are only praising the game's story and characters not the gameplay. For example, look at Metacritic:
Read the first few user reviews. Nothing is spoken about gameplay. Plus comparing GTA V with TLOU is like comparing Mario with Call of Duty. Both games are completely different and can't even be compared for GOTY.
