Just finished watching the awards, can't see it live because it starts at the same time as my exam. Had to dodge major spoiler bullets for this one, but i failed (Youtube notified me of MK11 and Persona 5 in Smash).
Anyway, man, what an amazing show! Geoff and his team really knocked it out of the park, there's not one moment of boredom here for me, really good pacing and content. I was a bit underwhelmed by last year's orchestra, and i can't say the same for this year's. Great performances from them all around. There's so many moments i want to gush about. That Reggie-Shawn-Phil uneasy alliance at the start, the MK11 fakeout, and Persona fucking 5 is in Smash now. I think all the guest presenters did really well, highlight for me is Christopher Judge. Congrats to God of War for the total upset, it's such a fantastic moment.
As for the announcements, I'm personally most excited for The Outer Worlds (that new Obsidian game, looks super rad) and The Pathless (Abzu devs' next game, i LOVE Abzu so i'm way in on this). The Outer Worlds is coming out on consoles too, that's literally what i asked for when they announced the announcement.
Also, Crash Team Racing's back! We're truly blessed, y'all.
