    Didn't read the thread. Obviously this thing is always a console-focused marketing shit show and the results should be totally ignored.

    I still take issue with the format. These categories are fine for some other awards show, but should not be at a 'games' award show:
    -Best Performance (actor)
    -Content Creator of the Year (youtuber)
    -Best Esports Player (teenager)
    -Best Esports Coach (washed up esports player)
    -Best Esports Host (wannabe game journalist)

    The category of "Best Game Studio Cafeteria Chef" would actually be more relevant than any of these.

    Best esports player is something that can only happen in gaming.

    So is "fastest speed runner" or "autistic that 100% the most games", but it doesn't belong at an awards show to honor game creators.

    Those things would all be better covered in a "streamer and youtuber awards" format.

    It's amazing to me that people actually seem to genuinely care about Geoff's shill spectacle in any other capacity than maybe a Trailer release or two, to the point that they even play his dog & pony show of "registering" and "voting" even though it's outright stated that their votes don't even matter.

    I think it could one of the non-TCG Magic games supposedly in the works. If so Magic The Gathering MMORPG by Cryptic is likely.
