  • Daily Poll 279: Who will win GOTY 2019

    Last Daily Poll was on if you are going to watch the game awards. Check it out here: https://www.exclusivelygames.com/for...he-game-awards

    The Game Awards are tomorrow so a predication poll is in order. It's not worth anything but hey I'm all for a flame war. I think it's going to be Death Stranding out of pure cronyism but that's just me. It's a bunch of journos who make the nominations and then some elite judges who make the choice along with the audience vote. It's all bought and sold as far as I'm concerned. The Oscars have been that way for decades and a lot of the gaming industry loves to play copycat with the film industry.

    Personally, it's hard to give a shit. Even though I know someone who was on the development team of The Outer Worlds, that's my biggest connection to any of these titles. Death Stranding is good, but not that good, same for Control, I don't support the idea that remakes and games that came out the previous year are eligible for this list, and I've never been, and I will never be, a fan of From Software games because their high and mighty, aka toxic community is the biggest turn off of any community I've ever seen.

      I voted don't give a shit.
      The only listed game I give a shit about is The Outer Worlds and with Kojima's lapdog Keighley running the show, I don't figure anything but Death Stranding has a chance.

        I hope it's Sekiro. From Software are putting some serious love in their art and storytelling and that can't be praised enough.

          I don't care, it means nothing to me and never influences what I buy.

            Resident Evil 2, might be at disadvantage for being a remake, but it's so much bigger and better than the original it can stand on its own two feet.

              Nah. Remakes are still the same game.

              There's two different kinds of remakes. Ones where they recreate and rebuild the game 1:1 with mostly just better, modern graphics and refined controls. The other kind is where they completely reimagine the game from the ground up to be something new, with the same premise and idea. The environments can be different, the gameplay, the events and scenarios etc, ideas can be pulled in from later entries and modern contemporaries.

              The former would be straight forward remakes like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro Trilogies or the Shadow of the Colossus remake, Super Mario All-Stars, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy SNES, Link's Awakening on Switch, Rondo of Blood and Mega Man X on PSP, Ubisoft's Turtles In Time remake etc. They're the exact same game with a new skin and some extra polishing.

              The latter would be games like Ratchet & Clank on PS4, Resident Evil 1, 2 (and soon 3), Metroid Zero Mission on GBA. Wayyyyy different than their original releases in every category.

            I voted for Smash Bros., but Death Stranding will probably win.

              Out of the games I played I hope Resident Evil 2. The Outer Worlds fell short in a little too many regards for me to consider it GOTY worthy.

                Most likely will be either death stranding or control (ign gave it its ward) but I would say resident evil appears to be the best game if the year

                  I think Death Stranding undeservedly will win. But I hope Sekiro secures the victory. It's full of abusable glitch bugs, but they still did a great job on Sekiro.

                    Probably Death Stranding but I really don't care.

                      Sekiro won despite outlets like IGN trying to smear the game as ableist back when it released.

                      I would have liked to see the Death Stranding salt, but close enough.

                        Fair win, might not have been my top choice but it's fair.

                          At least it wasn't Death Stranding just jumping in at last minute and winning.

                        Now Kojima must think people are just too dumb to understand his masterpiece...

                          As someone who's always weaved the meta conversation and marketing into his games, he's probably acutely aware that three years of concern trolling by outlets like IGN and the recent "Death Stranding shouldn't even be eligible because Geoff Keighley" push probably had quite an impact on how the game was received and how the jury participants felt pressured to vote.

                          That's what I would attribute it to anyway.

                          Dub-Z you mean like if the show was done by someone else / under other circumstances Death Stranding would have won?

                          I think if it hadn't been made needlessly controversial for so long, so consistently, it would have had a better shot. People wouldn't feel so compelled to smite it and panelists might not have felt any peer pressure when it comes time to vote. Most games don't bump heads with anti-auteur theory this much.

                        I think Sekiro's a decent choice. I thought it would be Smash Ultimate or Resident Evil, but at least it's not Death Stranding.
