Post The Game Awards 2019
Nominations were announced today.

Game of the Year:

Control (Remedy)
Death Stranding (Kojima)
The Outer Worlds (Obsidian)
Resident Evil 2 (Capcom)
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (FromSoftware)
Super Smash Bros Ultimate (Nintendo/Bandai Namco)

Seems like they wanted to give more recognition to original games after 5/6 of last year's entries were franchises. I respect that, but Fire Emblem: Three Houses wasn't the one to leave out. :(

Hard to guess who will win out of these. God of War pulled a big upset over Red Dead Redemption 2 last year. Right now I'd bet on Sekiro, as that has the same type of action gameplay (though much harder) and a similar story about using your power to protect an innocent.

My own list for 2019 (so far):

1. Resident Evil 2
2. Fire Emblem: Three Houses
3. Slay the Spire
4. Kingdom Hearts 3
5. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
6. Control
7. Borderlands 3
8. Katana Zero

Smash came out in 2018 but I'd throw that in there too.

Out of the choices given, Resident Evil 2 remake is an easy winner for me. Even though the story has been done before, it's a new experience with the updated engine from Biohazard. Making it easier and more fun to shoot zombies doesn't take away from the survival horror experience though. Ammunition is scarce, and some opponents like the lickers and Tyrant are still better off running from.

Smash is great, but it's a little frustrating they locked 75% of the new characters behind DLC walls.

Sekiro is a great game, though I could never get the parrying down and only made it about halfway through. Very frustrating, more so than Dark Souls has ever been, but again I respect the effort to make something different.

Control is so much fun, but also kinda buggy and I'm surprised it made it into the top category. I'm fine with it though, summoning and then throwing chunks of a wall at the Hiss never got old.

Haven't played Death Stranding or Outer Worlds yet. Fall has been really packed and I prioritized the Switch games first since they never go on sale (DS and OW will be half off or more on Black Friday).

i'm way behind on games this year. need to play basically all of these.

Red Dead losing last year was such a great moment because 1) God of War is a masterpiece 2) Red Dead 2 is the most overrated game of all time.

Supposedly May, mau, but they have pushed back the release date a few times already.

Sekiro won the big award. I’m cool with it. FromSoftware has a ton of great games this decade and deserved a win.

Xbox Series X also revealed and I hope that isn’t the final name. :funny:

I'm about halfway through Sekiro right now. It's honestly the weakest game among the Dark Souls/Bloodborne games. I think Nioh was actually a significantly better game.

It's significantly less interesting in terms of art direction, the difficulty (particularly from just the average respawn enemies) is significantly easier, and the gameplay/combat is just not as interesting to me. The lack of customization was really shocking to see as it's mad the game so repetitive and similar.

I don't mind them making a different game but I would have expected the game to be more of a challenge and interesting. The best thing about these types of games was the reward of just getting through a new stage/area. Here, everything is a breeze as all you have to do is stealth kill folks and be aggressive and attack first with an occasional block. I've rarely died just wandering through the areas (you also can just easily avoid 90% of the enemies in this game by sprinting and grappling through everything).

I'm shocked it got such great response. I wouldn't have gone above 7.5/10 for it. I'm hoping Outer WOrlds and Control provide significant better experience.
