Pure Evil - The Game Awards
 

Tonight is the online awards show The Game Awards. I don’t usually do much promotion for the show since it has been universially terrible since inception. A lot of indie developers no one cares about and awards mostly given out to whatever company is the one bankrolling the show itself.

Not to mention that the show is going to be online only in the middle of the week?

This year there should be a few decent announcements. Far Cry 5 and that Obsidian Fallout Clone as well as something from the new Avengers game a teaser for Star Wars and a new Rage trailer.

It seems like a slightly stronger lineup than previous years, but I still think the awards themselves will mostly go to titles that people didn’t care much about — because those are the companies bankrolling the show. If they changed it to The Shill Awards at least it would have the sting of honesty.

Awards shows... blech. So often they're the "Let's pat ourselves on the back" awards. It's just so much fun listening to people stand on a stage and talk about how important and talented they are. Still those announcements do sound interesting.

Seems like a better year for new trailers. Previous years they have mostly had one big trailer and a bunch of stuff you already saw during E3. I might actually watch this year and I should be home, so I'll post links to the new trailers when they come out.

The only reason I am commenting is because this year Far Car 5 came out (not 4), and it is one of my favorite games of the year. Might end up number 1. So I am looking forward to whatever Far Cry announcement they have. The thing I am hoping for the most, is the announcement for the next Mortal Kombat game. We all know they are making one, I can't wait to see it. I'll be at work while the show is on, but I'll have it on in the background.

I didn't like Far Cry 5 as much as I liked Far Cry 4 mainly because they all of the cutscenese followed the same formula (aka monologing while you just looked at the antagonist) but it has one of the best soundtracks in a game since Nier Automata and I absolutely loved Faith's story arc and territory. I would sometimes just stop in a car just to listen to the local radio station. I do not do that often in video-games.

I was just thinking that I want to see the new trailers, but I can't stomach watching the show itself. Game developers are not rock stars or actors and I have zero desire to see or hear anything about the people who make the games, I only care about the games themselves.

My god, these people are idiots. It is 10 minutes until show time and they have already given out the award for best RPG and best Action game. The action game award went to some indie title no one has ever heard of and best RPG went to an action game.

Man, you would think that after like 5 years of doing this that they would at least be smart enough to know you give out the awards DURING the show, not before the show.

Gay furry! Way to advance the cause!

This show has been going on for like 2.5 hours! It's longer than most E3 press conferences and with like a quarter of the content.

There are a couple of other little mini games that have been announced, but so far no Avengers, Star Wars and we haven't seen the new Rage 2 trailer.

That's a TON of time to waste (and don't forget these idiots started 15 minutes early) to have really only shown off two new games.

They need to decide if this is an Awards show or a Press Conference and not drag it out.

I kept having to turn to my 7 year old and say, that guy's crazy, don't be like that guy!

I’m disappointed that the minor rumors of a Switch remaster of Metroid Prime Trilogy didn’t pan out. I never played 2 or 3 and I’d love to replay an HD version of 1.

ElektroDragon 12-07-2018 10:39 AM

Monster Hunter over DQXI for best RPG is a travesty! Monster Hunter is not even an RPG it's shitty action MMO. Disgusted.

I didn't even stay up for the whole awards. After it went on for like 3.25 hours, I just gave up and went to bed. Mind you, I didn't watch the awards, I was just watching TV and checking twitter for the new announcements.

3+ hours is way way way too long for what boiled down to a bunch of trailers and commercials. They need to figure out what they are doing here, is this the "New E3" and they are going to spend 3 hours showing off new stuff, or is this an actual Awards show where they are going to give out awards to the games that actually deserve it (and not just to the people who paid them to advertise during the show).

Geoff Keighley has always been a massive shill and about 90% into self promotion, not doing actual journalism. The fact that this show continues to be a complete disaster is no real shocker.

I need help....lack of captioning is driving me nuts! What is the game shown from 34:24 to to 34:26 with the giant statue buried in the ground and the dude on horseback? And what is the animated game shown from 37:00 to 37:06 with the eyeball head and giant sword thrown at him?

If someone answers my questions above I swear I will donate to the site.

HaHa. Sorry, I looked at the video and they are just talking about the show itself during those videos and they don't say what the games are. So, even if it had captioning, it wouldn't do you any good. He is just going on about putting the show together at that point, not talking about specific games.

ElektroDragon 12-07-2018 12:11 PM

I just wanted to figure out what the games were based on the scenes, as I was interested in them. It's kind of like when you hear an awesome song and have no clue who its by. I need a SoundHound for video game visuals! By captioning I didn't mean subtitles but just the MTV style corner text of what the HELL THEY ARE SHOWING.

I saw that Dead Cells won Best Action Game which I thought was really well deserved.

I also saw that Fortnite won Best Multiplayer Game which is the equivalent of McDonald's winning best cheeseburger.

First one is Assassin's Creed: Odyssey I believe

Second one is 100% Dead Cells

Note, I've never played either of them, but it's easy enough to take a screen capture and throw it into GIS ^_^

I just realized that they didn't show off Star Wars or Aliens.
