What's funny is I do vaguely empathize with OP. When I heard Hades won so many awards I went "What? What game is that?" and then promptly just went back to ignoring everything. But I did feel it was kinda weird that he likes of Doom Eternal, Ghost of Tsushima, FF7:RE, among many other amazing games this year, were seen as 'peers' or 'lesser' to this one title.
So you're purposefully trolling? That sounds like a good idea. Hope that works out well and the mods appreciate it. Keep it up.
You win garbage thread of the year. Congrats.
Fake hype? WTF are you on about? To what end? What stupid motivation have you concocted in your head?
Hades was a great game, from a studio with a great track-record. It's not my GOTY or anything, but I enjoyed it a lot and could totally understand someone feeling that strongly about it.
Get over yourself. People can like things you don't like (or things you assume you don't like, since I doubt you ever played the game, and if you did you went in TRYING to not like it).
Ah I did't know this. Hades was their first game I'd played.Kind of a Supergiant Games staple, no?
Ah I did't know this. Hades was their first game I'd played.
I did play in early access, so I'll have to check it out again to see what the game is like now. I don't mind characters thinking out loud or reacting to what's happening during gameplay, but a frequency slider would be nice to have.
Imagine being this salty over a legitimately amazing game that nails both gameplay and narrative without sacrificing either.
Out of nowhere because you live under a rock.
With an OP like that I can only imagine you think The Last of Us Part 2 is a good game. Which means you have terrible taste.
I bought it, I guess I just don't get it.Imagine being this salty over a legitimately amazing game that nails both gameplay and narrative without sacrificing either.

I’ll be real I have no idea what this game is either.People of the gaming world.
Since this years video game awards and its nominations for Game of The Year alot of people -myself included- just had one single question: What the fuck is this game and why was it nominated for GOTY???
Also why the fuck did it win even TWO awards at the game awards.
I know alot of people don't give a flying fuck about awards or game awards in general, but its saying something about the current state of the gaming industry. Its becoming more and more like movies. Influenced from real world events and political agenda bullshit. And here we go, theres a game nobody gave a flying fuck about but suddenly it is literally FORCED and shoved into our faces.
So lets take a look at this crappy game:
came out on sept 17, 2020 but already released in Early Access in Dec. of 2019.
wow. much hype. very swell
well the reviews from people who played are are total bs. "pet the dog pet the dog pet the dog 10/10" what a fucking horse crap.
Ok, then lets take a look at the stats, everyone likes stats right?
So what this tells us is basically nobody gave a fuck about this game up until the time it released and even when it released it wasnt that hot. Only when it got nominated for goty...literally out of nowhere, out of Keighleys ass or idk
and already it is losing players everyday.
The game that won two awards at the game awards including BEST ACTION GAME
Then you are an Alien Masochist that likes having Abby and her politics shoved down your throat. She retroactively ruined The Last of Us Part 1 for me...Bastion and Transistor were fucking fantastic and I'm excited for Hades.
OP is bad and should feel bad.
What if I think it is and I love all of Supergiant's games?
Every year there is a token indie game that journos choose to praise. Nobody played it, but it made every list. Games like Celeste, Hades. Agree with the OP. This shit is too transparent.
Wasn’t this actually an awesome year for games? I’ve played more video games this year than maybe ever - Last of Us 2, Tsushima, cyberpunk, doom eternal, half life Alyx, animal crossing, final fantasy, demons souls etcI kind of thought the same. I bought it though a few days ago and realised how wrong i was. Its a great game if you're into that rogue lite stuff. Its also very obviously had a lot of love put into it and its crafted very well. Its definitely one of the best games of the year, but honestly thats not saying a lot. Mainstream video games have been fairly stagnant in recent years in terms of new things to get excited about. So if a bunch of journos want to gush over something smaller i dont really have an issue.
A game made by a company dead set on making you orgasm with voice acting onlyI’ll be real I have no idea what this game is either.
Because OP drinks semen instead of milk in the morningsEDIT: but I am confused why this actually bothers you
A genre where you have randomly generated levels that you need to complete without dying. If you die you have to start from the beginning, with newly generated levels.EDIT #2: what is a rogue like?

Dammit!!! The first line in my post.....lolThis is a stealth marketing thread and you all fell for it. Anyway, I'm off playing my newly bought game.
Speaking on the film industry - indie films aren’t usually the “token” films - but are usually just way better than most high budget stuff due to being a better representation of the art and not being constrained by producers who only care about money. There’s really no incentive for suits to conspire to give an indie film an award - real Oscar bait movies are mostly Biopics. There are a lot of truly great indie films that should get more exposure not less.Look I get the token indie thing (it happens in cinema too), but Supergiant isn't "token indie" anything. They're absolutely phenomenal devs. This is outright slander.
