OK how is destiny 2 nominated for best action game.....
no man sky got nominated for "best on going game" they had one dlc.....

TGGJustin1784d ago (Edited 1784d ago )

Wrong. No Man's Sky has been getting constant updates for weeks even after that huge summer update. It def deserves to be up for best ongoing game. Also the Forsaken expansion fixed most of Destiny 2's problems and there are few shooters that feel better to play than Destiny. That is why it is up for it.

lxeasy1784d ago

No man sky added a bunch of stuff just like sea of thieves. yet that ain't up there/ There are way more deserving games than destiny and no man sky up there

Babadook71784d ago

Would have liked Astro Bot to get nominated as GOTY. It’s higher rated than several nominations.

Skull5211784d ago

Rockstar made all of the other developers look like scrubs this year, should just give Red Dead all the awards. Probably the only game this whole generation that felt like a next generation game and not the same stuff we got in the X360/PS3 era.

TGGJustin1784d ago

@Ixeasy SoT has barely added any actual content to the game since launch. It's mostly short events with pointless cosmetic items. No Man's Sky has drastically changed over the years and has added far more meaningful content.

God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn also felt amazing and I’m sure that The Last of Us: Part 2 will be one of the best games this generation.

CarlDechance1783d ago

Skull521's definition of GOTY is anything but a PS4 exclusive. Entirely because Xbox doesn't even have anything on the list.

UCForce1783d ago

@Skull521 You are definitely getting cocky. Every games deserves awards.

Sunny_D1783d ago


You mean Red dead Redemption 2, the game with the slow reacting and cumbersome controls that we’ve had since GTA 4, GTA 5 and RDR1 from the 360/PS3 era? That game? Lmao

Why o why1783d ago

So transparent....like stated above, anything but a ps exclusive. I enjoy watching the salty try their hardest downplay efforts much better than what their favoured console could muster. Please continue

DarXyde1783d ago

Skull521 and their thinly veiled trolling. You claim it's the only game that feels like a "[current] gen experience", meanwhile there are games on PSOne with less input lag. Go figure.

That aside, I feel that God of War deserves genuinely some awards. My personal game of the year: soundtrack, narrative, voice acting, design, and gameplay. It really delivered.

Skull5211783d ago

Should hand out shame awards too since games are starting to get bad

Most buggy
Most fans lost in a series
Worst microtansactions
Least content for your money
Most blatant rip off
Most patches released in a quarter

Ceaser98573611783d ago

Ignore Skull He is genuinely butthurt as always that GOW Spiderman has got a lot of nomination and Xbox has only one Forza lol!
I am enjoying the amount of butthurt these Xbox fanboys get..

Red dead 2 will win GOTY imo but I will be happy if either GOW or Red dead 2 win. Both Game of the Generation... Spiderman Was good too.. So was AC Ody...

rainslacker1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )


I've only played about half the games on the GOTY nomination list, and I know at least half of those have no real chance of winning, but for the ones I have played, RDR2 is actually at the bottom of the list for actually being fun. In fact, that's true when you include almost all the other games I've played this year that weren't included from this list, and some of them weren't amazing games to begin with.

RDR2 is quite an impressive feat in terms of technical achievement, detail, and interaction, but it's just not a fun game. It's not even really all that thought provoking or special enough outside its technical achievement which is just really putting together a bunch of stuff that's been done before all into one package that works well together. People said Horizon and Spider-Man weren't innovative, and I have to say that RDR2 isn't that innovative either....just big. Not that many of the games on that list I've played were overly innovative, just that RDR2 is getting a lot more credit than it deserves.

UltraNova1783d ago

It has to be GOW for me hands down for GotY. RDR 2 while a tremendous technical feat, unequaled by a mile actually, its just less fun and flawed where it matters most, game play; whereas GOW is both fun and nearly flawless in every measurable way.

Now the awards are as political as they can get so I expect RDR2 to get most awards, including GotY but in my heart and I know in most gamers too, GOW will be the true winner.

Gaming1011783d ago

Skull251 is the little asshole who said Stan Lee doesn't belong on a gamer website, even though he's been featured in games including the original PS1 Spiderman games, so his opinion from now on doesn't count.

don't go into the game awards show looking for games that really deserve awards, just go for fun and seeing what new reveals they have.

if you look at the list crazy stuff is put in there, life is strange episode 1 for best narrative? The dialogue is terrible and its one big campaign for the left political agenda pushing white men as racists or if they aren't they are a blogger and protester for the left...

lxeasy1784d ago

Yeah you have a point

_FantasmA_1784d ago (Edited 1784d ago )

There's always that snowflake that refuses to talk about racism. White people are the most racist of all the people, just look at the world's history for example. America was built on racism and it never went away. Racism is alive and well. Everyday there's a photos trending online of some racist jackasses doing stupid shiit claiming free speech. Or there's a shooting. Or both. Being aware of this fact and being a concerned American is not a thing of the left. Are you saying white men aren't racists? Not all of them. But there are alot!

Anybody can be racist and I've met racist people in every race in my life so far. Maybe try seeing the world from someone else's perspective before crying reverses racism because someone made a game that mirrors real life. There are racist white guys, why is showing that in a game or other media "pushing an agenda?" Because it's the truth? Because it makes you uncomfortable? Too bad. You don't fix problems by denying they exist.

gamer78041784d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

@_FantasmA_ I can't read the rest of what you wrote, its inherently racist to say that "white(or any ethnicity) people are the most racist". Its stereotyping. Thats basically what life is strange 2 episode 1 did but in a more subtle manner and undermined their credibility and storytelling.

rainslacker1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

Have to agree. Can't have a best narrative award for an episodic game where the narrative barely even got started. If this wasn't a sequel to a highly respected game, it wouldn't be on that list. And I think the same would go for RDR2.


The most racist people I know are ineffectual idiots. Their skin color is inconsequential, and varied, because those that are racist, aren't more racist than others, and generalizing a particular group as "most racist", in itself is racist stereotyping.

I don't care what some individuals did throughout history, or how it may have been condoned by the society of the time which may have been predominately one race. I always judge people as individuals, and groups to a lesser extent based on their established beliefs. but to my knowledge, no race as a whole condones racism any more than another.

Being aware of historical "facts", even if those facts are also a rather wide sweeping generalization of people's personal beliefs, does not make any group any more racist than the other. It just makes you looking for someone to ridicule because of their race. I could point to all sorts of anecdotal evidence of any person, of any race doing something with racist intent, but its racist to assume that that evidence somehow supports the notion that it applies to an entire group of people...particularly groups of people that are scattered all over the world, and exist with hundreds of cultures behind them.

I asked a Russian friend of mine if Racism was a problem in Russia...in relation to black people. He said, "No, there are no black people in Russia". Obviously a grand exaggeration on the black population, but his point was sound, and their discrimination towards others tends to be for cultural or political reasons, and not skin color.

Gaming1011783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

Fantasma, there is actual data on who is the most racist. It turns out Jordan and India are the most racist towards anyone who isn't like them. Nothern Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia are by far the least racist, and they're mostly white. Africa and Asia in general are extremely racist, so you can shut up with the "White people are most racist" bullshit. As can be seen on the following map of the world ranked by racism:

NMS has had 5 named updates, two this year (Next and Abyss), plus all the weekly micro content updates threy did between Next and Abyss

warriorcase1783d ago

NMS has had like 4 large DLC updates over the years and destiny 2 got a lot of good grace from the Forsaken expansion.

Doesn't mean you have to like it but that's what it is.

Sappi1783d ago

How come god of war is not action game? How come there was no most disappointing game? Or best fps? Did I miss something.. And in general - hi I made this and yoi gonna vote to make sure I'm getting rich... Really disappointed.

milohighclub1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

No mans sky has had 4/5 massive content updates as well as weekly updates since summer.
Nms not only deserves to be there but deserves to win its category.

I'd like to see God of War nab Game of the Year but it's going to go to Red Dead Redemption II...both of enjoyable and well made games but I had more issues with Red Dead then God of War and this is coming from someone who didn't know what to make of the direction in God of War before playing it.

Have to say there's a lot of eSports categories which could have been better non esport ones and I'm not sure what to make of the Favourite Moment of 2017 category...that year passed, move on.

TGGJustin1784d ago

God of War deserves it more over RDR2. It's a game that has pretty much no flaws while RDR2 is flawed in the controls, pacing, missions design and more.

-Foxtrot1784d ago

Yeah I know, I mean that's not saying a game can be dead on perfect, there were a few smaller nitpicky things in God of War I "could" mention but the ones in Red Dead Redemption II were just literally in your face the moment you stepped into Chapter 1. The kind of issues you compare with the onslaught of amazing, perfect reviews, ones even surpassing God of War and you are like "Wait...What?".

It's hard to criticize because it's a good game but when reviewers are making out it's SOOOO good you need to then call them out for not mentioning any of the issues but because you get so wrapped up in calling the issues out people think you hate the game and are trying to say it's shit...however its not like that. It's a station where you need to watch where you step incase people take you the wrong way. Plus it's made even worse when God of War is a Sony/Playstation exclusive so it then comes off as being a "fanboy" and wanting "your chosen side" win something. It goes on and on.

Red Dead Redemption II has glaring issues and the fact hardly ANY of these golden reviews mentioned a single thing is disturbing because it allows Rockstar to get away with it. If they win Game of the Year then it's basically icing on the cake.

At the end of the day I prefer the first Red Dead Redemption, the story, characters, controls, stranger missions, world, gameplay and the like were better. Sometimes being too real can really impact the overall fun and no it's not me being "boring" or me being so into those "big full on action games" where I have a "short attention span" it's just a game which has issues which could have been handled differently. I mean if Red Dead Redemption II had the classic weapon wheel where every gun was at your disposable off the horse would that have really impacted the score? What about if somehow Arthur could carry more pelts/skins despite being huge animals? Animations for looting/skinning being shorter? None of that would have impacted the scores especially if they ignored the main issues the game had. They just become an inconvenience.
