Xbox has treated us to a bunch of fantastic new releases this year, and one of them is the beloved Psychonauts 2. Unfortunately, despite being nominated in five categories, it didn't end up winning anything at The Game Awards.
It was in the running for Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, Best Art Direction and Best Action/Adventure game, but ultimately missed out. As you're likely aware, EA's It Takes Two won the big GOTY award.
It's a shame Psychonauts 2 didn't manage to win anything, as it's absolutely one of our favourite games of the year (we gave it the coveted 10/10 rating here at Pure Xbox), and lots of fans have been sharing similar sentiments:
Nevertheless, Psychonauts 2 did manage to take home an award recently, winning Xbox Game of the Year at the Golden Joystick Awards back in late November. It'll undoubtedly be topping many GOTY lists over the next few weeks as well.
Additionally, Xbox head Phil Spencer praised the game as possibly his Game of the Year for 2021 — which is arguably the highest praise the dev team could have hoped for — calling it the best game Double Fine has ever released.
Sad that Psychonauts 2 didn't get recognition at The Game Awards? Let us know down below.
