I would Vote for Animal Crossing: New Horizons :)

It was a good game for the industry (and certainly for Nintendo's pockets), just like Fall Guys. It may get something in the awards. Depends on the categories it's bunched up.

With those wanky poll categories? Who the fuck are you hoping to convince?

Definitely not you. You can unsee the poll if it's too much a problem for you and opine on the news instead?

Amazing game.
U might not like the story or outcome.

But the attention to detail, animation along with action and narration Moment to moment are amazing.

Im not down with gender identifyers and science deniers but alot of the Last of Us 2 haters are exactly like the cancel culture they hate

Cyberpunk will be a much better game due to better sales, and better overall liking of the game. Pure gameplay and less shenanigans to steer away from the gameplay. Clean cut fun and action for everyone, and the game is highly anticipated across the boards.

Don't hurt yourself looking up synonyms there buddy. We'll still get the message.
>better game due to better sales

>pure gameplay
WHAT?
Fucking WHAT?
Witcher 3 had trash combat and was a buggy mess on release, you think Cyberpunk will have great gameplay?
Maybe it will, I hope it will, but come on if the past is anything to go by this is a delusional expectation lmao. Want good gameplay? Go play Sekiro or DMC or some shit jfl@u.
Also check out how empty Night City looks. Maximum 15 NPCs at once. Should've made it next-gen only haha.

MTV is a joke.
And this is not just any MTV, but MTV Brasil? Jeez, I wonder how less relevant this could be...
(I don't have anything against Brasil, it's just that it's only a small subsidiary of an already irrelevant - at least to me - news outlet)

I know my friend Juan's preference and modus operandi. :messenger_winking:
The sad thing is at least half of the people who hate the game on social media and review bombed it on metacritic are just xbox fanboys like him who haven't even played the game and don't have any interest on it. The funny thing however is that they are being "disguised" as TLoU or Sony fans in order to hide their true motives. :messenger_tears_of_joy:
Kinda sucks for the true fans of the series who have genuine complaints to see the game being used as foder for console wars.

Sorry, I didnt mean TLOU2 has science denier context.
What I meant is the whole industry ( and most the western world ) is on the wave length of making women less feminine, and being “Diverse”. Whcih NAughty dog has fallen under recently With Abby etc.

We have people who identify as a deer and like to call actual men and women Cis men and Women, while transexuals take the label as actual Man and Woman. ( Hence Science deniers. You can have as many operations as you want, your still not biologically the opposite sex you were born with, unless your a hermy )

And Im happy to call you a woman or man but in reality your not lol. Im not gonna change what I call myself MAN to make others happy. I will never call myself a CIS man or my mother or GF a CIS woman lol. Not catering to that BS

Which to me is mostly a bunch of people who ignore biology and give too much time into what they “identify“ as.
The whole industry and world is doing this unless you live under a rock. Chaging the rules to cater to peoples feelings and how they want To be identified as not what they actually are biologically.

The people against the TLOU2 are mostly people who hate this stance and want to fight back.

But that doesnt give a reason to shit on a quality game and downplay how good of a actual game it is outside the story and characters etc. You gotta give credit where it is due and its an amazing game, gameplay wise and the World.

Like VAnquish... quality gameplay wise... absolute poo story wise and characters.

The end of today, is tomorrow dust
You're free to advocate for Cyberpunk all you want. Why beat around the bush with all the other crap? You gotta try better than that with me. The problem, as it appears to me, is that I'm not sure you're doing it for the correct year. Do suit yourself however.
Lmfaaaao try harder with you than that? What are you, 12?! I'm not trying to change your opinion, and you'll definitely never change mine. To me, the game sucked, nothing like the first one. Does it personally hurt you or something that several people don't care for the game? If so, get help.

If it sells more, it means more people bought it. You know, more people who actually enjoy the game and will go out and vote positively for it, unlike TLOU2 on metacritic :messenger_winking:. Witcher 3 is regarded as one of the best games, ever. Why would cyberpunk not be up there, or even better? I don't get why y'all get so rabid when other people don't like the things you do or have different preferences. Cause that's really CRINGEY.

MTV "MIAW" Brasil... seriously? Is that the best you can find? GOTY awards are already a joke in the first place, then you look into my eyes and tells me to take this joke among jokes seriously?

Just so you know the level, among the other goty contenders were PUBG mobile, Fortnite mobile and Mario kart Tour, none of which even came out this year. Then, also know they have a categories for "best selfie of the year" and "best crush of the year". Thats how retarded this thing is.

Considering it's graphics, animations and atmosphere it's certainly top 10 material, but there's no way it deserves GOTY, especially considering the controversies at launch, the massive sales drops and the fact that barely anyone talked about it anymore two weeks after it came out.

Well you were arguing about the worth of the thread and "my attempts at shutting others of their opinions" for the lack of a reasonable rebuttal after you made a wild claim about dislikes on the game. I properly, and politely countered with a reasonable opinion. Perhaps you wanted to be unchallenged in that regard as you take a dump on the game. In that sense, you should have thought of it twice before typing? My opinion of course. It's called proper discussion.

All the other side show....projection, a helluva drug. If for every GOTY award TLOU II receives you'll get worked up like this I fear for your well being.

barely anyone except Neogaf with 67 threads containing "TLOU2" or "The Last of Us 2" in their title since 19th June.

Don't think there is a game out there in recent memory that has exercised gamers ability to debate and create proper arguments on such a wide variety of topics, from politics, culture, to game direction, cinematic story telling, creators intents etc. It's good brain exercise as long as it stays civil (hard task I know). The game has been impactful in that manner alone, even for those individuals that didn't even play it (as many in this thread opining about it I'm sure).

I bid you Nier automata, a game that exercized gamers abilility to discuss and think about philosophy and existencialism without needlessy delving into twitter politics and Us vs Them mentality, instead looking to unite the people that played it:

It was amazing technically but just too long for its own good. I didn't hate Abby by the end so they did what they wanted to acomplish to me but it just took too long getting there IMO.

There is the advanced search, but I'd be curious to see some real stats. I would be surprised if TLOU2 wasn't one of the most talked about games on Neogaf ever by those numbers

I don’t own animal crossing, but I would probably give GOTY to that game. Haven’t heard anyone dislike that game, hell my nearby Walmart and GameStop don’t even have copies of that game. The last of us 2 got soo much hate I can’t see how unless some $$$ was involved.

Great game. TLOU II is a totally different game however offering different areas for discussion. They don't play alike, they don't look alike, and its story beats are different. It's not a contest of which game makes the best discussion to you or me on a personal basis (with whatever biases we may hold).

I mean, if you wanna claim a discussion is attacking others and claiming whoever didn't like the game is sexist, homophobic whatever, the you do you. For me, being discussed a lot doesn't mean its either a good or productive discussion. Console wars being a hot topic for example doesn't make it a good or interesting one.
