    I don't know,generally speaking RPGs in 2019 are not better than 2010. So a RPG crazy good in 2010 is still crazy good in 2019.

    I'm not sure if you're aware that this is about about funny gay people who were wanking it to the male player character from the announcement trailer having a big round ass

    Did you watch that faggot? His main complain is face animation and muh graphics. He doesn't put any other reason why it will be disappointing. It is clear he doesn't know his shit about rpgs. When he said all the fallout games except 76 had a focus on dialogue,including fallout 4,he lost all credibility [​IMG]. That faggot knows about rpgs as much as i about snake breeding.

    I suspect politics is involved (TOW has nothing immediately objectionable, Cyberpunk has your character mowing through blacks and browns and hot dickgirl posters). :M

    Or maybe it's just that Cyberpunk 2077 won all the awards last year so they had to go with a different game this time.

    That's the problem. If he were knowledgeable enough you could discard his opinion as irrelevant to the masses, but most players are that superficial. This is a red flag.

    Could also be that Cyberpunk just wasn’t all that interesting this year inspite the hype.

    These "Best of E3" awards are more often given by one outlet to many different games. Few different yournos from one outlet can watch different games on E3, and give these awards to all of them.

    And they’re pretty meaningless anyway.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    Or it's something that's given for more than one game since I clearly remember this was also confusing me last year with many games getting "Best of" badges. :M

    Here's Watch Dogs with the same thing from GameSpot:

    That would be retarded, since TV shows wins the same EMMY award every year. Most likely because the product is consistently good, not because of some political agenda. Best product gets the best prize is how it should be.

    Sure,that is why i am on the codex,his opinion is irrelevant for the codex not for the sheeple. Thus making it pointless to be put in here.:obviously:

    Well so much for this guy's opinion. Shows you shouldn't trust anyone on Youtube.

    As for The Outer Worlds, I honestly can't give a fuck any more. And I am not saying this to be edgy. (most of the games of the 2010's barely manage to make an emotional impact on me any more as I have become so jaded)
    Just another example of how I have been putting too much value on particular game designers/artists that once created something that I hold close and dear (before a bunch of retarded frat boys got their hands on it and ruined it and still get praise for it by mouth breathing imbeciles).

    Even if the stupid Epic debacle might not have happened I would probably not have bought this game at the launch. Like others here have pointed out it looks way to much like Borderlands, Rage 2, Bioshock, No Man's Sky, so it is not the looks that really appeal to me.
    It would really have to come from the content itself, the storyline, characters and so on and I have so far not heard anything that makes me think "Wow I really want to explore this world, meet the people in it, and discovery its history and secrets." Just another plot about a corporation up to no good and its target this time being a colony on some distant planet.

    Well the plot twist could be that the corporation is actually the good guy or just another neutral side in this matter, beneficial to some, oppressive to others. But I doubt it.
    I have honestly become a sarcastic asshole.

    Because they are indicative of whether the game will be successful or not.

    It's not pointless if you want to know whether the game is going to be successful or not. Unless, of course, the Codex has millions of players willing to buy the game.
