    I really shouldn't care about this kind of stuff but I'm just pissed at how grossly overrated Control and A Plague Tale are...

    Oh well, at least best indie game nominations remains pretty damn so solid just like last year.

    Why are there so many esports awards when esports awards show already exists? There are such obscure awards like best esports host but there's no award for best gaming journalist?

    How do the hipsters at ZA/UM feel about getting participation trophies presented by Subway and Doritos Pope?

    Infinitron's list is relevant to Codex, so if you believe that list is decline incarnate, take it up with Codex.

    Out of those 5 I've only played RE2 and Sekiro, and both those games have more thoroughful design as a whole than Control. If just having satisfying gameplay qualifies for a GOTY nomination then I'd rather pick Devil May Cry 5, Control's combat is too one note for me.

    Well, what kind of friend would the dorito pope be if he didn't include Kojimbo-san movie in as many game awards as possible.

    REmake 2 and Sekiro are better. Hell what's ridicolous is that DMC5 isn't in Control place for GOTY contender.

    It's the biggest gaming market aside from mobile. As long as vidya exist, E-Sports ain't going nowhere.

    I was the writer for Katana Zero, which was nominated for Best Indie Game. I doubt we'll win, but I'll probably go to this, because I really want to meet the Disco Elysium people.

    The year didn't even end, this alone kills any credibility of the list.

    And Roah will likely be better than 95% of these games.
