The Game Awards 2018 Thread - "More than 10" game announcements

I know people will hate, but God of War was such a positive thing for all gaming this year. The refusal to recycle a tried and true formula, empowering the gamer to approach the game and play style with a personalized touch, a high degree of polish counterbalancing all of the player freedom given, a diverse set of enemies and puzzle challenges to boot, and plenty of additional game outside of the story's prose made it so much more than any fan of the series could have hoped to expect. That game was a gift, and no other series needs to copy its formula directly to sell the point home that an established game series does not have to be a cash grab or fan service. The bar got raised, and the accolades go to an honorable victor.

Smash should of had a Dragon Quest character........Joker from persona is a reach.

Other than the Hero (who is just the player's avatar), who do you suggest?

I was really surprised that a new Mortal Kombat game was announced and that it is coming out in few months. But yeah that music for the trailer is bad. The guy can't even sing. I mean couldn't they get a better song for the trailer?

That rap song was totally horrible. I too was surprsie a new Mortal Kombat game is coming this soon and Mortal Kombat X didn't feel like it came out not to long ago, I just think this new one is too soon. But hey, I'm hook on Mortal Kombat 11 now.

I got Mortal Kombat XL on sale last year and finding out today that Mortal Kombat 11 will be out on April 2019 also feels too soon for me. I really hope that it isn't rushed but still a new Mortal Kombat game is always great news for me.

MKx came out in 2015 by 2019 thats a 4 year gap

Nice that GoW got GOTY, congrats to Sony. Was getting tired of the endless banging on about RDR2.

And that Joker for Smash reveal! Stoked!

Fighting games typically don't render much and UE is pretty well optimized for lower specs.

Leave it a gay furry to bring politics into a video game show. Teehee republicans hate me,as the degenerate goes to fap to CP and beastiality. If I was an American gamer I'd become a Republican in an instant after seeing that

@i_p_daily: you might need to take a break from here

Me??? i'm not the one asking god to bless a gaming company, and acting like the game of the year awards are the Oscars of gaming.

The fact you say I may need a break just proves that you and the man that goes to Sony's brown town are the ones who are in need of a break.

@Shewgenja: Agreed. Also the fact that the entire game was one shot camera. Crazy stuff.

GoW winning goty and guitar girl were definitely highlights of the show.

Yeah I know. I just find it odd though that they announced a new MK game just few months before its release.

Show was pretty boring in general with a couple of good announcements. For some reason I'm happy GoW won GOTY and not RDR2, they deserve it that's for sure.

Forgot this thing was yesterday. Some good announcements, looking forward to marvel alliance 3. Didn’t play the previous 2 but the x-legend games were amazing. Forget Smash, this is what will get me to go for the switch.

@i_p_daily: you don't think GOD OF WAR deserves the OFFICIAL GOTY? Sorry you didn't like it. How far did you get on it? Everyone really seemed to like it. Enough to award it GOTY.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 a Switch exclusive... Nintendo, Tecmo, and Team Ninja are going to get harassed like Sony and Insomniac were over Spider-Man 2018.

@FireEmblem_Man said:

Persona Q came out for the DS, and Q2 came out on the 3DS. I don't know why you even care

Because I am a fan of the Smash series. That's why I care. That, and I am damn sure PQ1 is based on both P3 and P4, not P5.

The Shin Megami Tensei series as a whole favors Nintendo over PlayStation, for one thing. Persona Q and Persona Q2 are both exclusive to the 3DS, and the latter stars Joker. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle also has Persona characters in it and is on Switch, although no Joker there. Shin Megami Tensei If, the predecessor to the Persona series, was originally released as a Super Nintendo exclusive.

Honestly though, it's kind of amusing how persona became so big that it became bigger than its parent series and dropped the shin megami tensei name from its titles. Also, FF7 has never been on Nintendo console either but we have Cloud, so there goes that logic.

Fell asleep halfway lol, well congrats to all the winners, again the games that benefit the most from these shows (the way I see it) are the lower profile games like Celeste and Dead Cells which don't have money for marketing, nice to see those winning stuff too

since when do we use steam's scores? it's metacritic or gs, this game is 80 MC, thus, a failure. GOW is better and sold more. L-O-L.

who we?

billion of gamers used steam scores throughout the years. steam scores made our mind to buy or not to buy a game.

enjoy your stupid button smashers and movie games and let us core gamers to play immersive games.
