The Game Awards 2018


#86

Tim Cain is up.


#87

Melissanthi Mahut was robbed.


#88

Okay, the God of War voice actors (Kratos and his boy) was just dazzling. I laughed so hard. “Read it, boy.”


#89

Here we go.


#90

The Outer Worlds

DO WANT!


#91

BioShock + No Man’s Sky, with lots of close-up dialogue and first person shooting. Out in 2019 apparently.


#92

Yeah, that was my take away as well.

I’m all in, that looked great.

Steam page is up, too.

Sort of like “If Bethesda won’t let us make another Fallout game, we’ll just make a better Fallout” type of thing, is my hope.


#93

Well, Devil Trigger sounded pretty terrible live. Bad audio mix and it’s clear most of the good sound comes from post-processing.


#94

Obsidian just stole TGA for me. Looks phenomenal.


#95

Good God there’s still an hour left of this. I need a long commercial break to chill out for a bit.


#96

Dumb.


#97

God of War wins Game of the Year. Well deserved in an incredibly strong field.


#98

I thought the whole event was well produced and all the award accepters were pretty great. Well done. Was totally worth watching.


#99

Agreed. The excellent orchestra music throughout really elevated the whole thing.

God of War was truly a surprise win at the end, I was really expecting RDR2 to win.


#100

Yup. RDR guy is good, but Melissanthi was out of this world


#101

Man, learning GoW won GOTY makes me not want to watch it (just arrived to work, I slept through it).

I mean it is a nice, well written, well produced game, but next to RDR2 is is just…not.


#102

It’s amazing comparing the production values tonight to the first one five years ago. Well done Geoff!


#103

I totally agree for it winning. Maybe GoW doesn’t have quite the same world building,voice acting etc. but I’ll just say it…it’s a better, no it’s a much better and more fun video game IMO. I’ll toss in Spider-Man there also.


#104

I am glad RDR2 at least took narrative, score and best performance. Arthur was such a good character, and Roger Clark was brilliant. I finished chapter 6 of RDR2 few days ago and I miss him already.

Also, Christoph Waltz is awesome. Mouse and keyboard ftw :p
