The Game Awards 2019

  • @dipset I loved the game and I agree it's mechanics are incredible. My only issue was that not making more changes to the B playthrough feels like a missed opportunity. I'm not trying to say "we deserve it" or anything because we got a bunch of free DLC and most of that was apparently pretty fun. I just feel like that was on the one glaring omission.

  • @sheria

    Control is good but not GOTY or anywhere close. It’s a solid foundation but I think there is a gameplay/story disconnect that takes you away from its best elements being “The Oldest House”.

    Think about a classic like Bioshock and you remember the world so well because there are awesome scenes and gameplay scenarios in each new area. Every area in Control kinda feels the same: big wide area with a “shootout” in the middle. I think if they made better gameplay scenarios, it would be a significantly stronger game.

    To me, it isn’t in contention for GOTY and I’m surprised it got the nomination in the end.

  • @e_zed_eh_intern

    Yeah the A and B similarities were kinda disappointing but I still think something as simple as upping the difficulty and doing a speed run is replay value in itself.

    Other than The Last of Us, I can’t think of another action game “recently” that I attempted to just up the difficulty for the sheer fun of a replay where everything is essentially the same.

    I think Capcom hears us though. Next Resident Evil remake or sequel will probably have an extra budget and time to make more scenarios that differ.

  • @dipset Control is definitely my goty.

  • @phbz

    To each their own, I was quite disappointed by it. I think I was irked by what it could have been rather than evaluating it for what it is.

  • Just had a look of each of the GOTY nominees Metacritic scores to help predict who the Winner might be this year

    Control: 82/100
    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: 90/100
    Resident Evil 2 Remake: 91/100
    Death Stranding: 83/100
    The Outer Worlds: 86/100
    Super Smash Bros Ultimate: 93/100

    Save us Daddy Sakurai!!! :3

  • So anyone got any predictions on any reveals?

  • @dmcmaster Death Stranding DLC

  • I can't think of anything from Sony but they could announce the release date of dreams.
    Microsoft, Battle toads and Aoe 4
    Nintendo Zelda BotW 2 and Bayo 3.
    Maybe a teaser from From Software.
    Hopefully some WB Games from Harry Potter to DC Super heroes.
    RE3 Remake.

  • @dmcmaster WB Games Montreal will probably reveal the new Batman Arkham game. Follow up on the teases they made a few months ago.

    A new Smash character and new Mario Maker 2 stage style from Nintendo.
    Maybe the next Bioshock game. It's time.

  • Smash's final first round of DLC characters and updates on Witchfire and Bayonetta 3 come to mind. With the recent news Campo Santo has been working on Half-Life: Alyx, I don't think we'll hear about in the Valley of Gods. Also possible the Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe gets shadow-dropped. Happy to know we're getting something on Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Gears Tactics.

  • Batman: Arkham Legacy from WB Montreal.

  • Saw something about two games from Activision getting announced, one being some kind of Crash Bandicoot Oddesy, and the other apparently a Tony Hawk remaster without Tony Hawk..... calling it now Michael Jordan's Pro Skater.

  • @shoulderguy said in The Game Awards 2019:

    Maybe the next Bioshock game. It's time.

    sigh, if only.

  • @dmcmaster said:

    a Tony Hawk remaster without Tony Hawk

    that sounds dumb

  • @mbun
    I agree, but I can see some logic to it.
    Make a remaster/collection of previous Tony Hawk stages, use custom characters, maybe some microtransactions for costumes, fill it with the cheapest modern music they can get, print money.

    Unless it's made by Robomodo.

  • My GOTY is still Metro Exodus.

  • This year nominees seems way better than last year, though the amount of categories where Death Stranding is present makes me worry it will be a 3 hours commercial for Kojima.

    I've no wishes on who should win, cause usually it's the same type of game that tends to win (you could create the TGA GOTY template) but i'd like if Smash wins it, and i'm not even a big Smash player, it's mainly to reward Sakurai's insane work.

    The amount of tracks (especially the amount of new arrangements), stages, fighters,... it's something unprecedented for any video game, and it's not even a quantity vs quality situation because the care that was put on every little detail is noticeable.

  • I'll be happy if Sekiro or Control wins. Outer Worlds, I don't think it has a chance. And Death Stranding I don't think it deserves, though I think it's a good game. But the internet would go wild.

    Outer Wilds I want it to get as many awards as possible.

  • Just dawned on me but we might see a new NMH3 trailer, especially after seeing this
