    This. TLOU2 is the video game equivalent of the Oscar bait movies. Designed to appeal to the awards folks.

    I am absolutely down for Sephiroth being the DLC, but jesus christ last of us 2 did not deserve to win EVERY SINGLE AWARD it was nominated for. i wish each game could only be nominated for one award so we could get more representation of all of the games that came out.

    I called that TLoU2 would win GoTY in the last thread and I'm still super disappointed. I'm convinced that the Game Awards is rigged by the journalists or something, it does not deserve half of those awards, and the game isn't acclaimed at all by regular people. It's a shame to see that Doom Eternal lost on the game's 25th anniversary too.

    the problem is this is going to show in the long run how meaningless the awards are if the critics are the only one really deciding game of the year (or any of them for that matter) and I thing that going to hurt reviewers in the long run

    TLOU2 won. Bravo. *clap* *clap* *clap* wow, no one saw that coming.

    Sorry, but the genre nor setting interests me, and never will. I don't give a fuck about Naughty Dog or its games.

    How the fuck did Animal Crossing: New Horizons get best family game. Gone are the days where families actually sit in the same room with a controller and played a fucking game together. And pretty sad best rpg is final fantasy 7 a fuckin remake of a 20 year old game and not even half of a fucking game just a hand holding steaming pile of shit.

    To be honest, not a bad presentation. Sephiroth for Smash is awesome even though I'm too poor for a Switch right now so it's just teasing me. Though on that note, a bit of life advice; find someone as excited to be with you as Maximillion Dood is that Sephy's in Smash. His face, man. Priceless.

    Aside from that it was decent enough. Elite Dangerous getting more, new Perfect Dark, that appears to be Liara in the Mass Effect teaser. More Dragon Age is always welcome as long as EA keeps their stanky corporate dongs out of those two franchises of course. Disco Elysium finally coming to PS4. Some good looking indies and whatnot. Not a bad show. I've certainly seen worse.

    As for the awards, personally I think that while TLOU2 was decent enough, it's made me cynical as I don't believe it won based on the merits of the game so much as how it toes the right political lines with its gender activist stuff. I'd have given it to Ghost Of Tsushima, FF7R at a push. To be honest I'm tired of all the politics in video games these days. I just wanna have fun, experience a rich world and decent story, shoot some guys in the face. I don't need to be reminded of the real world I'm trying to avoid. In that respect TLOU2 is an awful video game as it defeats the entire purpose of playing a video game to begin with.

    It wasn't anything other than what most expected which was mostly a SJW circle jerk and ADs. I think those who are a gaming fan will see past all this nonsense and not give it much merit.

    It always is. Glad I just watched the trailers and reveals on a delay instead of wasting my time with the whole show.

    So, in conclusion:
    • Half the nominations (including GOTY) are swiped by mildly decent game that happened to have the largest marketing campaign of all competition, to nobody's surprise;
    • Best Action Game is played between several acclaimed skill-based arcades, is given to a dialogue focused roguelite instead;
    • Best Family Game is awarded to a release that's still notoriously restricts multiple family members from playing the game properly
    • Best Mobile Game 2020 is a title that's neither mobile-focused nor 2020.
    The overall experience is kinda shrug-inducing. Yakuza remasters are cool though, so I can live with that.

    Welp. Was hoping for Terra if we got another Squeenix character. Guess I'll have to wait and see for another Mega Man character.

    My centiments are exactly the same with most gamers who watched the livestream, that TLoU 2 didn't deserve the GOTY award. Even though I haven't played it, there are just better games suited for the GOTY especially from the perpective of gamers. It all makes sense though if most of the judges and votes came from journalists and not the gamers themselves. The game itself was an exclusive to playstation and yet all other games are multi-platform, unlike God of War in 2018 where it was also exclusive yet everyone can all agree. Because everyone should judge a game from all aspects like gameplay, story, sound and music, content, character development, etc. I don't even think TLOU 2 should win or get nominated in all the categories, but oh well what's done is done. I'm guessing they just want to appeal and market to certain individuals and companies and not the gamers.

    I'm guessing it's just a controversial game or something, does it make it relevant in our society? I think gamers even are intelligent enough to know the difference of a shallow game or not. Anyway, I just watched it for the announcement of upcoming games, was disappointed though as they weren't that interesting.

    Here I was thinking 2020 couldn't get any worse, then here we are in the gaming community with these issues and drama.
