You should see how many he was Nominated but yet Gears not once was mentioned on anything. This should give people a big warning that this show should be canceled.

Gears 5 is a better rated game than DS by critics and users. Substantially more by users actually. But Death Stranding is a new genre. Gears 5 is more Gears. I think they see DS as an attempt to bring an all new game style, art style, music....even if it is boring.

Its nominated for best action game and a couple others

As for Death Stranding if it does well in other GOTY awards then it being here is legit. If it doesn't then Keighley pulled the strings.

Regardless I know for a fact is nothing like Gears for as action goes.

Death Stranding? I don't think anyone would argue that its an action game.

I liked Gears but its hardly so good that its a travesty that it isn't nominated for GOTY
In the past 15 years a game with a low score of 83 has never won GOTY. Add to that, the user reviews at a 5.7. And I thought it was the users that somewhat (10%) contribute to the GOTY voting process. Does seem a little suspicious.

But if the game ends up as GOTY, then obviously it did something right.

Its a divisive game. Resident Evil 2 is universally loved but has less 10s. Same with Sekiro

And its a weak year.

I'll pass on the inevitable Kojima suck fest
I only watch for the game reveals, awards that are subjective are pretty meaningless anyway. The Kojima thing was a big turnoff the first time he did he but it just kept happening lol. I think last year he toned it down a bit but that's probably only because Kojima was busy.

I don't play the MP so I can't comment on that but the campaign stunk in Gears 5 and the mechanics haven't done much to evolve in years so I don't know how it would even be mentioned as a GOTY contender. Maybe MP game of the year or something like that.

Strongly disagree. Gears 5 deserves to be on that list waaaay more than Control or TOW and these are games I really like. The difference in what Gears 5 offered as a storydriven experience..not even including its multiplayer..it is a travesty.

Of the GotY noms, I've only played the first hour of Outer Worlds but significantly more of Death Stranding (prioritized it as I'm only renting and wanted to get more out of it while I have it, Outer Worlds I have on gamepass so can get to later) but even with that, I'd say Outer Worlds is more deserving. DS should not win GotY. Maybe it should have a shot at some of it's other noms (score maybe?), but not GotY...

Just about done with Star Wars. Easily my GOTY.
Still thinkin' of pickin' that up but with it being EA can't justify full price. Only EA game I would EVER pay full price for is Skate 4, and even then it'd have to check a lot of the same boxes Fallen Order did; no lootboxes, no MTX....

It’s 49.99 at Walmart, online...it was on sale on amazon for the Xbox at 41 bucks and 45 for ps4 last week.

I’m sure it’ll go on sale again, for the December holidays

I just hope if an MS games wins they don't let Greenturd go up and accept like he did last year for Forza, was pretty bad when he turned an acceptance speech into a GP commercial.
