Game Awards Nominees

Well, if only I played a new game and stop hunting 10 year old games. :P

 

Happy to see that the Final fantasy remake made it to the list. I found this one hard to call honestly.

Hades deserves each and every award, even the ones for best content creator, best esports player, best esports coach... Just give everything to supergiant games.

I am glad Yakuza Like A Dragon got nominated because this is a first time of a Yakuza game being nominated for The Game Awards

Not been a year for new games in my case, haven't played any of the nominated ones.

Hopefully next year isn't such a shitstorm personally and I'll have a reason to vote.

I find this interesting:

 

Quote

The Game Awards has an advisory committee which includes Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, and AMD, Electronic Arts, Activision, Rockstar Games, Ubisoft, Valve, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

 

This committee selects around thirty influential video game news organizations that nominate and vote on the video games in several categories.

 

So the advisory committee picks the "organizations" they've showered with their "promotional materials" and who gave their products the highest scores and that's what consumers see as the nominations.

Did anyone else predict 6/6 GOTY nominees?

Not quite, I'm surprised Doom got nominated. I'm not saying it's not great, but it kind of got overshadowed by ACNH at the time it came out and from what I heard some people like the first one more.

I half expected to see either Among Us (yes I know it came out in 2018), Fall Guys, Half-Life Alyx, or Ori and The Will of The Wisps in there.

I'm very happy to see Hades got a nomination.

Though there are a lot of predictable ones in there.

I predicted all of these, except Hades got nominated instead of Half Life Alyx

Excited to see the love FF7Remake is getting in nominations, same with Ghost and TLOU2. Quality bar is real high this year, and with both Persona 5 Royal and FF7Remake is the running for RPG its gonna be interesting to see where the tough decisions are gonna be made (for the record I don't believe P5R should've been allowed to be nominated since it's basically just Persona 5: Definitive Edition with extra story content. If people can complain that remakes shouldn't be nominated, they also should be upset at nominating a 3 year old game).

Play-Station-Ghostof-Tsushima-2020.png and Hades!. Ghost of Tsushima was willed in for The game of the Year category by the internet 😂.

Happy for Supergiant game, they are A1 devs. All of their games been fire.

And Sony trying stacking the deck with multiple games.

I dunno who's going to win game of the year. Competition is tough this year. Obviously im rooting for Play-Station-Ghostof-Tsushima-2020.png and Hades tho. Both made it in a good amount of categories too.

Cool 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim made it in as Best Narrative nominee. I need to boot that up already. I'll try to do so after I finish Darksiders Genesis. Hopefully i'll have a PS5 by then.

Yeah, I've heard not enough videogame press people and influencers have played this game, which is the main reason it's not on the list. The ones who have played it say it deserves at least a nomination.

Only played TLoU 2 and Hades and loved them both. Hades deserves this nomination. 

Despite that, and not having played GoT, I would probably go to TLoU 2. It deserves the award.

As for the announcements predictions, I only have one. I think we're going to see a new Bayonetta 3 trailer. Just because YouTube has been showing me the first trailer of this game in the ads a lot recently 😅 Also, it's just been too long. Other than that, as much as MGS Remake and Silent Hill were rumoured, I still don't expect to see them.
