>The event itself
Got together with a few friends and we all watched together since that's the only way to enjoy this Zoomer shitshow. We had a game where we would take shots everytime our nominations didn't win, my patrician taste coupled with paid judges ended up with me passing out and losing a good chunk of the vent(aka literally nothing), it was fun.
>DMCV best action game I guess. At least Astral Chain was a nominee, should have won.
Expected, ties in with I was talking about in other topic, AC requires people to put in some effort to actually enjoy it while DMC is just fun at entry level for people who never touched the series.
>easily the star of the worst action game 2019 lol.
I disagree, the game isn't even that bad as people make it out to be, it just had too much hype on the Kojima brand and people bought in without even caring what it was about.
>I’m either old or I hate most games, because this shit is dreadful.
You're just like most of us(not completely retarded).
>The industry is leaning towards multiplayer GaaS, it's a sad world we live in.
In the very least it's still better than Gatcha shit which has killed videogames where it actually mattered(Japan) and they're still games while Gatcha shit is mostly just gambling and softporn.
>Indeed, this is why I mostly have stopped paying attention to new games.
I try to keep myself tuned to at least the minimum details so I can have shitposting material.
>Absolutely sad night.
Despite all the cringe and shilling, I feel like it was actually decent for once in the award department, Sekiro taking in the title(even though I think smash deserved it) of goty brings the radar back to games with gameplay over cinematics, 2019 has been a pretty good year for action games and surprsingly the goty award was a good way to close it, hopefully devs in 2020 will focus less on stuff like NuGoW(even though we know Lesbos R us 2 will nab the awards next year) and more on 'gameplay matters' types of game even if for a short while.
>I was waiting for at least one pleasant surprise but it never happened.
NMH3 was probably the only title that interested me there, that and DMC: Shark Edition looked fun in a stupid way.
>How is anyone supposed to get excited by these vague CG trailer? Who is this shit for?
People that buy games based on brands like CoD or Hideo Kojima.
>The actual awards have always been a joke, but this year was a mess.
They were miles ahead of last year which featured NuGoW nabbing away the prize from Red Ded Redemption 2 and SonicFox as best player.
>Death stranding best direction.. like wtf does that even mean?
Probably the fact that the man has managed to somehow kept a weird level of secrecy in development to most of the parties involved, the fact that Kojima has actually managed to keep everyone hyped on a game they knew 0 things about for years is actually amazing. It speaks nothing of his quality as a game developer but it shows he knows how to run things and earn his buck.
>Basically this whole video about Hollywood also sums up my take on the state of the gaming-industry:
I blame China.
> but I'll stick to the recaps.
That's always been the case until last year when me and some friends decided to make something out of this trainwreck.
>A lot of people thought that the game was going never gonna finish, so I'm happy for those that people that got this,
Wolverine simulator is actually pretty entertaining despite not being an actual game.
>Not even trying to pretend it's not a PC at this point.
It's not, it's worse.
> I really don't think there needs to be one organization trying to be "The Oscars" for video games
It does now because they wanna make people believe games are on the same level as movies just as e-sports should be compared to actual real sports, it's all for the $$$.
>The only other reason I gave a crap about TGA was because the Smash community had convinced themselves that we'd get an announcement for the final character in the Fighter Pass...and we got absolutely nothing.
I'll be honest, it's kind of amazing how the Smash community manages to keep disappointing themselves over and over despite Nintendo giving so much to them already.
