    I have both God of War and RDR2, and even though I'm happy for GOW winning GOTY.
    RDR2 is still the better game in my opinion, way better. The story especially and I just like to be in the immersive world with Arthur, riding alongside his horse. It's so amazing.

    8. Far Cry 5
    7. Assassins Creed Odyssey
    6. Monster Hunter World
    5. Smash Ultimate
    4. Detroit Become Human
    3. Spiderman
    2. God Of War
    1. Red Dead Redemption 2

    5. Detroit: Become Human
    4. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
    3. Spider-Man
    2. God of War
    1. Red Dead Redemption 2
    God of War was a masterpiece but I felt like it was overrated, it definitely should not have won GOTY over RDR2 imo.
    If we’re talking about best stories then it would be
    4. Spider-Man
    3. God of War
    2. Detroit: Become Human
    1. Red Dead Redemption 2
    I debated putting Detroit over RDR2 for best story but there were just so many small details and side missions that really defined the story of RDR2 so I went with that.
