The open world meme has got to go
Even as someone who generally enjoys Bethesda games I can't deny the amount of cancer they've introduced to the industry. Cosmetic DLCs, boring empty open world's designed around fast travel, releasing broken games and fixing them later etc.. Although it's funny that despite their incompetence nobody has managed to successfully emulate their style of game which says something about game devs in general
People's standards went way low after that happened
>>5807>Yeah those games were based I played the shit out of the GB version as a kid. Weird how it isn't really talked about that much these days
Noone remembers old games at all. Emulation is probably the only way to remember that old games even existed
Nintendo and Microsoft at least make some attempt to keep people interested in their old stuff with Game Pass and Switch VC, wish they weren't such Jews about it though
wtf? there were many better games in that year than those choices
GOTY is really just whatever's most popular with journalists at the time. idk about GoW but I know that both Death Stranding and TLoU had very easy modes basically designed for those fags

Sony bonus is real, it will be interesting to see if that continues into this decade now that Xbox is set to dominate
I still think Sony will keep on winning with the journos because movie games are the only games they can actually finish. Though we have Starfield and TES VI coming up and Bethesda games are usually an automatic win
Xbox has some "movie games" in the works like Hellblade 2 and Pentiment so maybe those will get some attention. But I think the Sony attachment is just brand loyalty, Returnal also got great reviews despite being hard and gameplay focused
The marketing for Overwatch did gain a lot of useful retards, not to mention how memorable the characters are.
I thought even journos disliked death stranding because it was boring. Kojima even got butthurt about that.
