New Xbox announced, Xbox Series X... Sex Box?

DMCV best action game, I guess. At least Astral Chain was a nominee, should have won.
I find it funny that Norman Reedus gave the award, easily the star of the worst action game 2019 lol.

I’m either old or I hate most games, because this shit is dreadful.

That multiplayer melee game could be cool, the footage was super choppy though made the animations look trash. Also hate multiplayer games, but a good one could pull me back in.
The industry is leaning towards multiplayer GaaS, it's a sad world we live in.

Indeed, this is why I mostly have stopped paying attention to new games. Most of these trailers are full of similar camera work, terrible music, non-gameplay and cringe humor.

Holy shit that was bad. It was like an old E3 trash fire I couldn't stop looking. Final announcement was a fast and furious game that looked like a mid gen PS3 budget title. Absolutely sad night.

I was waiting for at least one pleasant surprise but it never happened. Not watching this garbage again.

How is anyone supposed to get excited by these vague CG trailer? Who is this shit for?

The actual awards have always been a joke, but this year was a mess.

Death stranding best direction.. like wtf does that even mean? Are we just saying gameplay means nothing to direction?
DMCV best action game, Sekiro best action adventure... haha man. If i got one of those awards I would pull out my dick and piss on the stage, can't believe these shills are proud of it, the fortnite guy literally almost in tears.
You're a multimillionaire dude, you didn't win because your game is a stunning artistic achievement.

Basically this whole video about Hollywood also sums up my take on the state of the gaming-industry:




Watched a compilation of the awards just now. Nothing worthwhile announced. Was slightly enthousiastic about a Ghost trailer, only to see just another set of cutscenes spliced together that we'll never see in the game itself. Like, what does it even show us? It's just the same shit every year, and that's fine, but I'll stick to the recaps.

Bravely Default II's name made me laugh though.

Quick thoughts.

>Bravely Default 2

That was fucking stupid.

>DMC 5 as best action game

Deserved, I suppose. Although you guys say AC was really good.

>Sekiro as GoTY

Could've picked worse. Out of the bunch, that, and RE2 were the picks that I think were best.

>Wolf Among Us 2

A lot of people thought that the game was going never gonna finish, so I'm happy for those that people that got this, I guess. Also, I managed to upload that trailer first on reddit.

>Xbox Series X

Not even trying to pretend it's not a PC at this point.

Overall, yeah, this show was fucking dumb. Ads everywhere, lame-ass trailers, skipped awards, dragged on forever. I really don't think there needs to be one organization trying to be "The Oscars" for video games, because all this was was a big glorified series of Superbowl advertisements. The thing I got the most out of watching it was 4000 internet points for a trailer I uploaded. Not worth it.

I hoped either DMC or Astral Chain would win best action game, so that was nice.

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. Gotta love it.

>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.

Agreed. In this case, I can see why people thought there would be a surprise announcement. All of the fighters are supposed to be released by February, and there is usually at least a couple of months between the announce trailer and the character release. I guess there will be a pretty quick turnaround for the DLC #5 release.

I actually agree, Sekiro has its problems but it’s a complete, challenging game that I think still deserves the title in some ways.

>LoU2 nabbing all the awards next year
>Doom Eternal being left out when it could be an action goat

Sad times.

Lucky I read here instead of watching this. Sounds mentally damaging.
