I think the xbros knows what's up with their console. Sony guys though, they brag about exclusives all day though those games mostly plays the same IMO.
well getting an exclusive for 1 or 2 years is still vastly superior to no exclusive since xbox exclusive games are now day one on pc so...

the only true exclusive console now is the switch :P

Cool elden ring deserved, and that's it. The only awards that matters are steam's.

Elden Rings actually won, wow, as much as I wanted it to be GOTY, I thought they'd choose GOW, so that's cool.

I had no idea former president and regular Epstein island visitor Bill Clinton was involved in the development of Elden Ring.
He was in charge of getting the devs massage girls during crunch time.

that is not a thing that a casual gamer will even bother to get it to work
maybe

considering repackers like fitgirl do precompiled "PC Versions" of switch games or the popularity of the steam deck for example (even one of the steam deck promo videos featured yuzu (till they pulled and re-upped the video to remove it when Nintendo got involved.)
switch emulators are accessible to the non-tech literate and your average gamer is already more tech-literate than your average non-gamer.


it really comes down to where you draw the casual line, using the most common definition of casual gamer they are busy with there cell phone and won't bother with either a PC or console.

I, too, hate when game devs add tons of customization options in my games to make it easier to see, hear, or play them????????

This should be praised--are gamers stupid enough to be offended when game makers allow for more tweaks and visual adjustments? You can hate GoW or TLoU as much as you want, but those games go way out of their way to allow for more people to play games--text scaling or audio changes, etc. That's a really cool thing.

Wait, there's a movie trailer amongst all this?! Nintendo is doing weird stuff. :huh: Also, due to the somewhat disturbing ending of Kirby and the Forgotten Lands, I would not have voted it to win Best Family Game.

There's a new Bayonetta? The former actress leaving didn't kill the Umbra Witch? My guess is that not only will it be just as gory, it will not do well either.

Ghostbusters VR sounds like a cool project, but does it have Bill Murray and Dan Ackroyd? Ghostbusters just ain't the same without those guys.

The rest is "meh" at best. Game Awards - actually, all award shows - are pretty boring. Unless Chris Rock gets hit again! :rofl:

Lmao they go all of their way with these low effort implementations that they for sure need an award for that. Ffs, good they have these options but an entire award category lol and i'm not offended, you and your tantrum are, i just read that and that got a good laugh out of me, said nothing against the "complex life changing features" nor the award, just found it stupid.

Also, you dropped this again: "—".
