but The Last of Us does have bad storytelling…an d Journey does have bad gameplay. ;)

Also, I think there is a clear principle behind a lot of the discussions in GOTY stuff, where a game that does in fact do everything better than another will lose to another game that is also doing its shit well (just not as well), but is doing new shit, too.

Metroid Prime is still the GOAT for storytelling: a seamless combination of solid technical writing, changing aesthetic and an unintrusive plot all inextricably linked directly to the game's mechanics, structure and composition.
