The right games were Kingdom Come, Spider-Man, Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Astro Bot, but none of those shills have any taste, or play any games even, so this mediocre collectathon pseudo-ARPG button masher with crap character design and story "won" instead. And to top it all off, no great games were announced either in this shitshow. What a waste of an evening.

I honestly didn't expect it. All those awards going to RDR2 felt like it was too obvious a decision. Good job.

I wish DQXI won role play instead of MH though. Would've been perfect.
Same and Octopath should have definitely won the best Soundtrack.

They are pushing the announcements aspect of it because the companies that fund the thing can't profit very much from awarding shill prizes to their old games. Hype for upcoming stuff is much more valuable to them than praise for past stuff.

I guess I should actually play it now. I got stuck in game muck with Spiderman (losing the will to play through yet another open world game) and haven't played a ps4 game since.

Even tho my GOTY this year is Octopath, GoW was also up there for me. Considering narrative driven games are my favourite type, I can't be more happy for GoW winning this award.

It's my Game of the Year. Red Dead 2 is fantastic and my 2nd favorite game of the year, but I'm still not a fan of the clunky controls. It can be a pain to do simple tasks like talking to somebody without aiming a gun at them. God of War was so smooth from start to finish.

Eh, for me it was GoW, RDR2, or Spiderman.

Personally I'm going to vote for Spiderman first, RDR2 as second, and GoW third when the official voting comes around but they're all deserving of the top spot.

I think lot of people going to disagree with me on this but God of War 2018 has one my favourite combat in western games.
I'm curious. Did something come out this year that has better combat outside of a fighting game?

I honestly no idea but this most fun combat I ever experienced in western game.
Oh... ok :(

I was hoping that you may have had something that I completely missed out on in 2018 and didn't get a lot of attention here in the US.

Edit: Or Canada, or the UK, or the EU, or Russia etc.

RDR2 had more emotional impact on me, talking about the ending specifically, but God of War was more entertaining to actually play. I personally think DQ11 is the best game this year, but I also agree that GoW was more entertaining then RDR2. All three are exceptional games though.

I'm glad it won over RDRII, God Of War don't have any micro-transaction so it's obviously a better game than RDRII.

Anywy VGA are a joke, When a NO-RPG like Monster Hunter win the award of best RPG over Pillars Of Eternity II : Deadfire...
It's a fucking best marketing contest and as nothing to do with overall game quality.

Well deserved, it wasn't an easy reboot and they avoided making it into another "souls" fuckery ripoff

It actually put the outdated janky DMC5 to shame
