Obviously Deathloop isn’t quite as difficult as those other games we just mentioned, but Cerny clearly enjoyed Arkane’s super-powered shooter a heck of a lot. On Twitter, he wrote: “So original… and so STYLISH, really deserved its Best Game Direction award at the TGAs. Thank you Arkane!”
Mark Cerny is a brilliant hardware designer by day and an immensely capable player at night. Until now, the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 architect’s gaming achievements have been publicly known, and his passion for Trophy hunting appears to be insatiable. He’s already gotten Platinum Trophies in Demon’s Souls, Returnal, and Cuphead, three of PlayStation’s most difficult games, and now he’s added Deathloop to his collection.
So original… and so STYLISH, really deserved its Best Game Direction award at the TGAs. Thank you Arkane! pic.twitter.com/MUEPEMY2e1— Mark Cerny (@cerny) January 9, 2022. Indeed, Deathloop won a couple of awards at The Game Awards 2021 — namely Best Game Direction and Best Art Direction. When it first released back in September, many critics went gaga for the PS5 exclusive, but it didn’t actually win that many Game of the Year awards. Still, that’s not going to sway Cerny, who’s happy to call himself a fan. Has Cerny beaten you to another Platinum? Break the loop in the comments section below.
