Ghost Of Tsushima: 10 Reasons Why It's A Game Of The Year Contender

2020's GOTY discussions will be VERY hard.

Sucker Punch

In 2014, Sucker Punch released Infamous Second Son, their first game of the PlayStation 4 generation and a fresh start for the Infamous series. But it was not long before other PS4 exclusives, such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Spider-Man and God Of War, all came out and outperformed Infamous Second Son in both sales and critical reception.

But in the final year of the PS4 generation, Sucker Punch would deliver a game that struck a cord with many players. Ghost of Tsushima allows players to take control of Jin Sakai, an honourable samurai who must fight back against the mongol invasion of his home.

After the samurai are overwhelmed and defeated, Jin must acknowledge that their traditional way of fighting is not enough to defeat their enemy and must adopt more dishonourable tactics in order to tip the odds in his favour and save his people.

Sucker Punch’s latest game has taken the gaming community by story and is a fitting swan song for the PS4. A Game of the Year nomination seems inevitable and this list will prove why Ghost Of Tsushima deserves to be recognised as a major contender for the award.


I am an open minded guy who is always up for trying new things. I love playing video games, watching and critiquing the latest films and tv shows and a big fan of football. So yeah, I’m pretty much just another generic white dude on the internet.
