Why wouldn’t they, professionals working in the same field have both knowledge and understanding of their fellows craft.

It’s only the kids from different camps that make this mutual appreciation seem refreshing.

They must be slightly disgusted too though. Up until today they had Game of the Year in the bag.

Yeah they're grown adults and aren't acting like children but you'd have to understand some disappointment from them too

You say it like God Of War has lost the possibility of winning a GOTY overall, even tho both games have universal acclaim.

If anything it is quite possible we are looking at another TLOU vs GTAV situatio here.

Likely that many from SSM were at some point involved with the RDR2 game, as they are part of the ICE team, and no doubt, they would have spent some time working with R* on how to make things work well. They probably knew well this game was going to give them a run for their money. I also think that SSM isn't going to be as fussed about winning or losing GOTY as the fan boys are. They had a massive success, and should be proud, and no other big game release can take that away from them. Sure, it's nice to get the awards, and recognition, but they aren't going to let it phase them.

I’d work for Sony cleaning toilets at the different studio offices. Just to see how things run & to see those amazingly talented developers at work everyday, totally worth it.

The respect that these game studios show to one another is awesome. I love it.

Now, hopefully many within the gaming community can do the same for their fellow gamers (regardless of their platform of choice) and let them know they’re hoping their fellow gamers have a great time playing the games there excited for.
