    Why people still pay attention to Dorito pope show? That shit is more bought by industry insiders than the Oscars, it is just Dorito's pope award action house. It is obvious Last of Us II will win, as Sony made the best bid so far.

    They dont, its all a vanity fair like the Oscars and having even less value.
    Also Sucker Punch is, like Naughty Dog, owned by Sony Interactive Entertainment so Sony have as much as a horse in the race with Ghosts of Tsushima as they do with The Last of Us II, I am sure The Last of Us II will win awards but then again, so did Dragon Age: Inquisition ... didnt exactly helped with sales now did it?

    Such a gentleman :)



    Edit:

    Looks like Sony is doing some changes at Naughty Dog.

    They promoted Alison Mori and Christian Gyrling on the same VP positions as Cuckmann.

    Basically they dilute his influence in the company.



    Edit 2:

    I was wrong. Cuckmann is now Co-President of Naughty Dog :| Wtf!?

    Look to the positive side, he will ruin all next Naughty Dog games to the point that only the 12 game journos that liked this game are the major customer base left.

    They promote people to please investors, NOT gamers.

    Investors were happy with the woke mess that was TLOU2, they got a nice jump in stock price, and Cuckman's crap with withholding bonuses and forcing them to work insane hours increased the profitability of the game.

    Just like EA. They don't CARE what gamers want, because the real money is from investors and loot boxes, and as long as they can pull the wool over their eyes the money keeps rolling in and the stock prices will go up.

    Ghost of Tsushima shouldn't be winning either. 7.5/10 at best, but of course on the bright side at least it isn't TLoU2 that won.

    It's a shame, because Ghost does have great potential and many notable things about it. One of the better open world games in recent years, but still casual decline.

    Doom eternal is the only worthwhile AAA game this year it seems?

    I'd bet the upper echelons of Sony were caught just as unprepared for the US cultural revolution that started a couple of years ago as everyone else.

    It remains to be seen if they move to clean up the act of their loony Kwan subsidiaries. Maybe they aren't doing anything dramatic yet because, like it or not, stuff like Uncharted 4 or TLoU2 wasn't a commercial flop. But if they start seeing they're bleeding money due to wokeism I doubt they'll just sit and twiddle their thumbs.

    Tbh what worries me more is the ever disappearing gap between Sony and Nintendo. At least from their last year presentations overflowing with cartoony, cutesy, child-like, zero T aesthetics it was clear they see Nintendo's success and they wanna their own slice of that sweet hikkomori pie.
