Default F@%K THE GAME AWARDS 2018

You can take the title as a both a play on that one drunken dev last year complaining about the Oscars, or as commentary on the Game Awards tendency to, among other things, embrace/reward some of the worst examples of Youtube/Twitch streamers out there. It's a title with layers.

Anyway, discuss hate-watching video gaming's attempt at award season pomp & circumstance, as well as winter time mini E3 reveals, here. Stream starts tonight at 8:30 EST.

Apparently the Russo brothers will be on hand, presumably to present the trailer for the Avengers Project game and Avengers 4, making all my dreams come true

Seconded. I hope they show some Anthem/Sekiro and like maybe a new character trailer for the fighting games I like. That's it.

Same. This show's a joke and I only care about the new game/DLC news that will materialize on the Internet during and after it.

I'm assuming the shoe-in for the influencer award this year is Ninja, whose been accused of gaming Fortnite's moderation system to eliminate his rivals in a desperate attempt to maintain his status as top Fortnite streamer, and last year it was Dr. Disrespect who it turned out was cheating on his wife. It's a whole rainbow of terrible.

A guy who just two months ago downplayed the holocaust giving an award to a racist alleged cheater who I also just remembered has a Mike Pence-like attitude towards playing with women would perfectly encapsulate why the Game Awards should just stick to giving awards to games and their development staffs.

I don't know if I even bought any non-indie games this year, so my only dog in this race is Guacamelee 2 for Best Mexican Game Made By A Canadian Studio.

Oh wait, Donut County for Best Justification To Plunge Innocent People 999 Feet Underground.

I haven't watched the video for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 yet, but I see Wolverine so I am very happy that Marvel's letting newer games acknowledge the X-Men's existence again.

So did all of the PlayStation Classicís budget go into that Game Award ad spot, because that was actually a pretty slick commercial.

Hilarious to me is that the voice actor for the Persona 5 MC is also the Smash announcer

I guess I shouldn't be surprised they picked God of War over RDR2, but I had hoped they might make the right choice.

At least that keeps the streak of my GOTY differing from theirs alive.

It may be (I haven't played it yet) but it's odd that RDR2 kicked it's ass in every category that the two faced off in, and then GOW wins GOTY. WTF?!

I thought ninja was the one who was cheating on his wife, then claimed the only responsible thing to do was to publicly declare that he was never going to interact with women in a professional setting again, the cunning temptresses.

No, Dr. Disrespect (the one who won last year) was the one who cheated on his wife. Ninja is the one who says he won't stream with women because of, like, temptation, or some shit.

Anyway. Ninja said the N-word on stream, and Dr. Disrespect is routinely cartoonishly racist towards Chinese people when he's playing PUBG, so fuck all of them.

Have ANY of their fan-voted trending gamer/content creator things ever resulted in someone who wasn't a massive pile of trash? Cuz in 2016 it was the aforementioned holocaust denier and in 2014 it was someone who'd spent the latter half of that year telling his fans to harass women.

Best thing to come out of it that I can remember is SonicFox winning best e-sport player this year and that's not even the same category.

Dang it internet, you raise my hopes for a Metroid announcement and I bought into it like a sucker!

Joker being in Smash is a hell of an out-of-left-field surprise, though. This had better mean Persona 5 is coming to Switch!

Seriously Atlus! You better!
