Studio of the year: Epic games

lolwutnow?

It's true tho, they give so much free games away. no other publishers does it. With no strings attached.

They even gave out so many of the Arkham games (no Arkham Origin) as well with no strings-attach. Epic doesn't rub me the wrong way and I only use the client when I need to.

Yes, they give away lots of free games. The Messenger and Bad North are two games I would have bought, but gotten for free from the Epic store.

On the other hand Epic limits the freedom I had on where I buy my games. Because they bought everything up.

I want to buy RDR 2 on steam because I want to share my screenshots there, but I can't.

Best story telling Days Gone

the thing that's weird about this award is there's next to no story in day's gone. i got about 15 hours in before getting bored with nothing happening. either that or it's stretched wafer f*ckin thin and i didn't have the patience to see it develop into the year's best story.

all that really happens in the first 15 hours is your mate gets bitten on his arm and is bed bound, then a bit later on needs it amputating so has to be moved to another camp. that's about it amongst a load of fetch quests and a minimal backstory of trying to find clues to learn whether your wife survived.

i bought but haven't started the outer worlds. slightly worried if day's gone beats it for story then how bad must the outer world's story be

I wouldn't worry that Days Gone got the best story as this industry has a tendency to suck on Sony if you know what I mean.

Outer Worlds should have 10x better gameplay and that's what really counts.

it's been a poor year for sony so probably a pity award.

tbh, comparing apples to apples, i.e. days gone to other open world tat, gameplay-wise days gone is certainly no worse than any of the ubisoft games, i'd actually argue it's better tbh. but i'm one of those who needs some degree of a cohesive story to thread a game together, even if it's as basic as resident evil 2's. with an rpg i expect to plough 20-30+ hours in it becomes much more important to me, although i hear people sayin outer worlds isn't all that long as far as rpgs go

@Bread_or_Decide: Well 1) its a video game and 2) it was released this year, so yeah it is fair.

Now Death Stranding winning would not be fair as its considered as art and therefore it should be hanging in a museum somewhere.

Well deserved. I don't think anybody expected RE2 to be as utterly brilliant as it was.

Except the original RE2 is also brilliant....sooo what else would be expected?

How the hell did RE2 win.....that game sucked, it was a horrible remake.....hated the way leon and claire looked (nothing like the previous games) and the horrible camera and animation system didn't help either. It doesn't touch the PS1 version, IMO. Nothing stood out in the remake....bland and boring.

@Bread_or_Decide: I'm not entirely sure how the original being brilliant is any form of guarantee that the remake would be. They could have easily screwed it up.

Yet the majority of people seem to disagree. Reviews were excellent, and gamer opinions seem to be there as well.

Depends on the quality of the game. The best game is the best game is the best game. Way too much credit is given to superficial shit or nebulous shit like "mah innovation" or whatever the ****. Remasters shouldn't, because it's just the same game, but spiced up visuals.

Remake 2 is an honest to god remake, as in every thing has been redone and altered and changed. The story n beats may be the same, but the mechanics are different, the level design itself is different even if the setting choice is the same, enemy interactions are different, etc, etc.

And since gaming journo types and the gaming community are too trash to be woke enough to recognize that the actual best game of 2019 is Devil May Cry 5, rightfully they should give it to the other Capgod game as sort of an olive branch to apologize for their failure as people.

They're already starting from a place of brilliance.

Adding a new coat of paint isn't exactly all that hard.

I can be a genius too if I trace over the Mona Lisa.

I pretty much know what every award is but what is a Breakthrough award? Sorry for sounding so foolish.

Sorry, missed this post.

That is a gross oversimplification. The gameplay was a huge deviation, and tying the entire game around that is no small task.

Yes, they could have so, so easily screwed it up stuff like removing ink ribbons in flavor of checkpoints, used that dumb-ass QTE shit RE4 introduced. Just turned it into an action game where resources wasn't anything worth caring about. Used low quality shitty FMV's like Revelations 2 or it a very, very easy game to cheese like the originals and 4 by simple using the same tactic over and over.

The only real fuckups here IMO are Crash Bandicoot croc, which honestly, was abit shit and an overly streamlined story where they removed almost all of the text reading.

Some stuff they did carry over which they should have improved upon is boss fights involving "shoot red spot", somewhat uninspired, but this has been a problem since the start and practically every RE game barring Revelations 1 which had two very decent boss fights.

Mean, make no mistake, Revelations 1's finale boss fight still uses the same old "shoot red spot", but it's done in varied phases to make it interesting. RE2's kinda suck. The final Tyrant boss fight is basically an inferior version of Jack Norman.

Know it sounds like i'm shitting on it, but really, i'm not, these are super minor nitpicks in a fantastic game, personal GOTY for sure.
