In case you didn’t know how great of a game The Last of Us: Part II was, now you can find out – by seeing it swept the G.A.N.G. Awards recently with 7 straight wins. The Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) recently announced the full list of winners for multiple categories which encompass music, sound design, dialogue, mixing, and interestingly enough, podcasts. Rachel Robinson and Cody Matthew Johnson co-hosted the virtual event again this year which was broadcasted on Twitch. Pretty much anything you’ll see now could be found on Twitch (E3 I’m looking at you here). TLOU2 took home 7 awards which was followed up by Ghost of Tsushima winning 4 awards, and in third place…literally and figurately was Hades with 3 wins. This is by no means a small victory for Hades so let’s not get that twisted – it deserves every award it gets and major recognition. An honorable mention goes to the composer for Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Gordy Haab for winning the music of the year award for the second year in a row following last year’s award for Star Wars: Squadrons. Simply amazing!

Some of the most titular titles were nominated for these awards, such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Final Fantasy VII: Remake, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and Cyberpunk 2077. Below is a summary of the awards TLOU2 won, along with Ghost of Tsushima and Hades:
