The Game Awards 2021 provided plenty to talk about thanks to numerous trailer reveals and new game announcements. However, the award also opened the conversation by the surprise announcement of the game of the year, but fans believe that something unfair happened with Psychonauts 2.
As we told you weeks ago, when the list of nominees for the event was revealed, Psychonauts 2 It was shaping up to be one of the top winners, as it was nominated 6 times in different categories, including the Game of the Year 2021.
Injustice? Psychonauts 2 left empty handed
Precisely, Psychonauts 2 It was nominated for Best Directing, Best Action / Adventure Game, Best Narrative, Best Art Direction, Players’ Choice, and Game of the Year.
However, there was no good news for the Double Fine Productions game, as it was beaten in all categories and did not take home any awards, which was surprising to many fans.
Through social networks, the players expressed their disagreement because they believe it is unfair that Razputin’s new adventure “Raz” Aquato did not win any awards, since it is one of the highest rated games of the year. Psychonauts it even became a trend for a moment.

“a game narrative is more than blowing up grenade factories and yelling obscenities at your alligator bride
anyway marvel guardians of the galaxy wins best narrative over psychonauts 2″

It Takes Two wins the GOTY and I have to say it deserves it as well as Psychonauts 2.
IT Takes Two seemed to me a spectacular, fun game, with a beautiful narrative and very charismatic characters added to about 18/20 hours of play

Some don’t believe Psychonauts 2 have lost against DEATHLOOP, as the art style of the Double Fine Productions game is more interesting than that of the Bethesda game.
Until Halo: Infinite, who did not enter the main selection for debuting outside the established period, received an award thanks to the support of the public. However, many players expressed their dissatisfaction stating that “today he lost the game.”
However, it is important to remember that, in all categories, there are usually great games, and precisely in 2021 great productions debuted, so it is normal that sometimes there are no prizes for some. In addition to Psychonauts 2 Has not received any awards from this ceremony does not detract from its success.
