Okay. I have less than a day until the Game Awards nominations are announced, I played jack and shit this year out of stress, I want to take the categories from last year, minus a few that stumped me, and make my predictions on one of who I think will be nominated/win, and I’m listening to DEVO’s “Whip It” on loop. Let’s go.
CONTENT CREATOR OF THE YEAR
I watch a load of YouTube and I see quite a few content creators. I’m going to throw my favorite out there. I watch him every week and I love his stuff. Scott The Woz is my favorite for giving sharp criticism with an amazing sense of humor. I don’t know if they allow reviewers but they should.
BEST MULTIPLAYER GAME
It wasn’t the best thing ever, but it’s still a damn good time with friends. Borderlands 3 has my vote.
NBA 2K20. Couldn’t give a shit so I looked at reception.
BEST STRATEGY GAME
I don’t play strategy games but I will guess Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Just a pure guess.
BEST FAMILY GAME
There’s one that I did play this year. While I honestly forgot I had it after a week, Super Mario Maker 2 is still fun and very good for the kiddies as long as they don’t get mad because of the levels made by ROSS!
C’mon. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was confirmed to be eligible by Geoff himself. Samurai deserves this award and many more.
BEST ROLE-PLAYING GAME
Didn’t play any RPGs this year. I have a really good feeling that Kingdom Hearts III has this in the bag though.
BEST ACTION/ADVENTURE GAME
Action/adventure is really broad when it comes to gaming (Or at least that’s what some guy at a pub told me once in the bathroom.) so I’m just gonna throw out Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order and hope I’m not inept more than usual.
BEST ACTION GAME
From the 0 action games I’ve played this year Devil May Cry 5 was the best.
BEST VR/AR GAME
Alright, we’re getting to the point where I’m just gonna pick the only one I know of and I feel numb. Trover Saves The Universe because why not.
BEST INDEPENDENT GAME
I need two on this one, fuck you, I can do whatever. I know the world busted their nuts over Untitled Goose Game, but I know loads of people loved Cadence Of Hyrule too.
Norman Reedus in Death Stranding. Next.
BEST ONGOING GAME
After my buddy went on for days and weeks about it, I played it and I actually loved it. I don’t care what meme lords say, Fortnite is fun.
GAME OF THE YEAR
From all the games I heard about and the few that I actually played. I’m sorry Mr. Kojima… Super Smash Bros. Ultimate deserves this. The game is fun, the effort shines and it’s a celebration of video games in general. It deserves it.
Now can we please get mklachu back for another Otamatone solo? The art needs representation.
