    1, the link you provided had only 1 reference to where it got the idea that you can't disable it and that article was proven wrong just now by me searching for burger king near me and it could not locate one. If I can prove it wrong and that's not valid, then one source proving it right should not be enough either. 2, I have been opted out for years now and yes you can really opt out.
    Also, that one reference is almost a year old.

    EDIT/UPDATE: Decided to track the links back to the original source. Your link points to an APNEWS article from 2018 and that post points to a QUARTZ article from 2017. Neither the 2019 nor 2017 article does much work to prove the new reasons for thinking google tracks while turned off. The QUARTZ article does point to why google tracked while location was turned off, but that method is no longer used for cell ids anyway so that is not a valid source and the other part is from an outdated version of googles terms.

    I think thats true of almost every single award, it certainly is for movies and music.

    Logic like what? Checking if a news article from a company that has posted wrong data in the past is accurate and checking if the things posted are still true? Seeing if the original article has multiple sources to back up its claims? I am saying that if 1 source is enough to prove something right then why is it not enough proof to prove it wrong.

    It makes it pretty damn obvious when they announce the winner before the awards show. Some genius in marketing didn't think we'd put two and two together.

    Not sure if you just don't like actual facts or when people don't agree with you.

    Game its self is not shit, just not most peoples cup of tea. What makes fortnite shit is the parents who used it as a free baby sitter and let there kids play it all hours of the day and get addicted. I would say don't ban the game, make harsh punishments for parents who do not supervise their kids while playing games.

    Apparently, you have to actively hate/dislike multiple companies or the things they do, to legitimately dislike one company. Even if the other companies have nothing to do with this thread.

    So Epics Game didn't deserve the reward because you guy hate Fortnite and Epic Game Store is shit? That seem reasonable I guess.

    Maybe someday Nintendo will do something so controversial that people would denied that it ever saved gaming industry before.

    How much did Tim Sweeney pay you to suck him off?

    I mean, don't take my word for it, Epic games' storefront has spyware and other things because "they want to know how many people use Steam and what games they have derr herr herr"

    Don't believe what that assbite Tim says, he's just spouting PR bullcrap.

    That would go to Bethesda, basically every year. The only time it wouldn't, was either:
    • When Digital Homicide was still active
    • Assassin's creed: unity stands out
    • The final fantasy xiii pc port
    • Every rockstar PC port since selling its soul to Sony for gta 3

    Please stop. Google had done many thing that violate pretty much everyone privacy but do you denied all of its contribute for the internet? Whatever Epic done doesn't denied what it had contribute for the gaming industry and it deserve that reward for their contribute to game development.

    Yeah no the game is shit was always shit .. Even kids think it is shit .. Therefore it's shitty sir don't defend it because you still play a shit game .. & as a parent of 3 . Stop talking shit like you have a clue what parents do with there kids... Jeesh just get over it . Fortnite is /was/going to be remembered as a crappy game that should be banned as it has introduced kids to stealing WORLDWIDE Which unfortunately is poop

    So you don't care about Google earning money with your data, but you go ape shit on epiv which you don't even use and cry because they get a award?

    Yikes.

    I say you are a bad Parent and get some random people on the internet to tell you the same so that makes you are one right? Because they said so. Right?

    You can cry, rollover, insult and stamp on the ground, fortnite is popular and people play it, if you can't handle stay away.

    And no I don't play Fortnite and I don't assume others to play it because they "defend" it, just saying.

    And I expect some more logic and reason of someone who has 3 kids, otherwise they will end up like you, washed up and talking crap and Karen-logic on their way to adulthood.

    "Jeez just get over it. "

    *shrug* whatever you say.

    Maybe once that loser Tim Sweeney retires I'll change my opinion. He can kiss my ass.
