And sometimes, the industry also decides to speak up; tell Phil Spencer, the main person in charge of Xbox and his favorite to take the GOTY 2021. It’s Psychonauts 2, the action-platformer adventure released by Double Fine Productions last August. This has been recognized in a talk with Major Nelson (Larry Hryb) in a relaxed talk on his YouTube channel.
