The Last Of Us Game Of The Decade

As if Naughty Dog needed another claim to fame. Review database Metacritic has published its lists for the best entertainment of 2019 and of the decade, as voted for by its users. Resident Evil 2 -- the PlayStation 4 remake, that is -- was crowned the best video game of 2019, falling in line with our own Game of the Year staff vote here on Push Square.

As for Game of the Decade, it's The Last of Us that walked away with the most mentions, beating out The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (second place) and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (third place) by some distance.
