God of War game of the year, well deserved! Both this and RDR2 deserved it but only one could win.

RDR2 is a glorified screen saver.

The cool stuff happening on screen has such little relation to what inputs the player presses during the game.

These guys get it.

No Death Stranding but it was still a nice show.

Hopefully the viewership numbers jump up from last year so Geoff can get more exclusives next year.

Solid show. Liked seeing Dead Cells, Forza Horizon and God of War win.

Best role playing game going to a non RPG was weird though.

Best reveals were Outer Worlds and Psychonauts 2. Didn’t know Tim Schaefer was still making games so that was a great surprise.

Below coming to Game Pass was a nice surprise.

Good job by orchestras.

Show was a bit long but decent quality. Especially when you consider where it was a few years ago.

...and Nintendo got themselves a Marvel exclusive from Tecmo.

...and Epic pulled Ashen off Microsoft Store and Steam. No longer Play Anywhere.

Might be the one time Microsoft is playing nice guy when everyone else is b**** slapping them.

ResetEra is freaking out over the Death Stranding and Metroid no shows. They literally want to set up a firing squad for those that wronged them, lol. The internet is a weird place.

Honestly, it's not that great. If you have a backlog (like me) you're going to regret giving the game the 5ish hours it takes to finish it. It's a simple, fun game but not at all the 9-10/10 that the gaming media hails it as. Even read reviews from big sites saying the story is a emotional masterpiece lol
It's a cute story about believing in yourself and not some groundbreaking therapeutical artwork.

I do enjoy RDR2, but its more entertainment package /time sink than a game, like Vikings series I am watching. GOW is a better game, & you get more enjoyable/unit time. Which there are some backtracking, long boating, it was never as bad as RDR2.

In RDR2, you ride for 30 mins/ 3mins of fun gameplay or something. Traversing is like 90% of the playtime.

The graphics of RDR2 carried the game more than people perhaps realise (IMO).

No they aren’t. Nobody expects DS until 2020 or 2021.

Forum is out for blood. Mods are extra angry. Lol

Banned me for insulting Valve. I said that maybe now that they have real competition (regarding Epic), they’ll stop being fat and lazy and invest in exclusive content. Maybe get off their asses and do something with Half Life. Did not know Valve was part of the protected class of people/things you weren’t able to talk ish about. I talked all kinds of ish about Microsoft when they weren’t investing in exclusive content.

There’s good communities within the forum but it’s best not to stray out of certain threads.

Kojima and Keighly made some tweets suggesting that Death Stranding was going to show up at The Game Awards.

Norman Reedus is on record saying "early 2019".

2021 lol.

I think Reedus is being coached by Kojima.
I guess it's possible. Doesn't feel like it to me though.

Not really sure why Kojima gets this wrap. All his MGS games came out in a timely manner save for The Phantom Pain, which obviously took longer because he was making the Fox Engine.

I think 2019 is certainly a possibility at this point.
