VGA needs someone like Ricky Gervais to host and mock most people there. The programmers and artists that worked overtime at awful conditions aren't there and feels like an awful circlejerk amongst the most privileged people in the industry.

I'm glad you suffered so I didn't have to

Prematurely congratulating Elden Ring for winning GOTY

Even if it doesn't, it's the GOTY. It didn't really have any competition though. Stray is a cute, fun, innovative game but not even 1/100th the scale or impact. And there's uh...GoW Ragnarok? I guess? Just a story DLC for an old game. Yawn. Nothing new.

The Game Awards are like a slightly game themed Teen Choice Awards

I wish they didn't bring on Al Pacino for this, now I'm just thinking about all the way better things I could be watching right now.

I wish they didn't show that dude jumping off a cliff, now I'm just thinking about all the way better things I could be watching doing now.
