    Never mind. It Takes Two won. A game where a couple going through a divorce works out their problems and rekindle their love for each other for their daughters sake. Oy vey! Shut. It. Down.

    The first thing I thought when they announced David Cage involvement was Twilek shower scene.

    Now, seriously, I'm still feeling bad knowing that Tell Tale is still alive, it will be all that shit again:
    1 - Trailer starts.
    2 - "Oh, it looks cool, could be a good game."
    3 - "Oh, it is a really good franchise."
    4 - "Oh NO! Oh no, Why? The Tell Tale logo shown up again."
    5 - Now repeat this at least three times for all game shows you are going to watch.

    I was annoyed enough at what I did catch of the show, but after seeing that there'll be a David Cage Star Wars VN, I went to get the rye.

    Because many of them arent making games, when you use the word games, people expect games but when you say experience, hey if you gonna take a dump, that qualifies as an experience. It is vague enough so they can preserve deniability when people complain about their games having no gameplay. They claim it is just you having way too high expectations like expecting gameplay.

    Outside of RE8 and Metroid, I have no idea what any other GOTY contender was about.

    Because real games are exclusionary as a result of challenge and interactivity. People are also intimidated by console controllers of the past 30 years & mouse+keyboard. Challenging game design, a learning process, and complexity is "stress" to many boring people.
    "experiences" appeal to the widest possible audience, and game devs are largely sellout scum.

    Because actual gamers are the minority. Outnumbered by:

    -Middle-aged people, zoomers and even many millennial cucks that "game" on their mobiles, or just own the latest console and only play the occasional latest highly marketed AAA shit.
    -Brainwashed zoomers in particular that don't know better, because they've been fed shit for 20 years now/their entire existence
    -Storyfaggot retards and graphics whores, both of which are everywhere even among those that lived the glorious 90s.
    -Those that never got the true golden age experience, just stuck to one platform, or worse, one genre, and never really gamed that much. Such people have no idea what has truly been lost, never developed standards, and don't see the problem.
    -Multiplayer cucks which while are largely gameplay-focused, are ultimately sucked in by repetitive mind rot, MP game design is stagnant, basic, and uncreative as fuck and the social experience is given too much emphasis. One instance in which games are actually games always, but it is a bit degenerate for my liking, filled with microtransaction and is the only form of actual pure-ish game allowed in AAA industry today, superseding monocled singleplayer experiences.

    Worst of all is how much people just eat up whatever shit is shoved down their throats with multi-million or billion dollar marketing campaigns without question. Fucking idiots. As well as the evil scum that create those campaigns for their soulless golden turd-in-a-box.

    Game design, gaming and gamers are dead/dying.

    Only way I would be half sober while watching the Game Awards would be if Jeff actually wore his famous pope hat through the whole show.

    Man I miss when multiplayer was more in the hands of the players/community. Jumping on your favorite server and seeing familiar name tags, if there was a hacker an admin would just ban them right away. Having LAN parties with friends:negative: I haven't been multiplayer gaming much at all since dedicated player servers started dying in favor of matchmaking, aside from the occasional local co-op/vs game.
    There is just something different about playing an actual person in certain kinds of games, the adrenaline and slight anxiety I just don't get in other games. Hopefully all the machine learning leads to good AI in the future that can sort of replicate this feel in singleplayer campaigns.

    Even classic multiplayer gaming is a little degenerate for my liking (generally basic and repetitive on the whole), but yes it was still far more respectable back then because it was innovative, creative and evolving at the time, no microtrans and other garbage, and before battle royales or call of duty clones as a rule was a thing

    I still love multiplayer in concept and practice but it always feels dirty and degenerate, easy to get addicted to playing the same thing over and over trying to chase the initial thrill or the rare awesome clutch moments...I rarely play anymore.

    Couch co-op on the other hand I will never tire of. Actual meaningful social component rather than interacting with random fuckwads online.

    But overall I'm being a little pretentious here, multiplayer is one of the only forms of "real" gaming left in AAA given that it is mostly gameplay-focused without much fluff (e.g cinematic BS, various casual assistance features are not built-in as standard like they are in singleplayer), and can be a shitton of fun, I resent it mainly because it too contributed significantly to the decline.

    One moment a game that doesn't celebrate no fault divorce and champions a functional white American family wins an award, the next millions of Jews are being shuttled into an incinerator ran by white supremacists. The horror...
