Well deserved! Kudos to Geoff for an awesome show!

salmonade11d ago

He'll bathe in Mountain Dew and lay down to rest upon a bed of Doritos. Lets be honest, the Game Awards are ALWAYS crap, and always boring ASF. Congrats to God Of War, they deserved to win.

darthv7211d ago

Yes... its an epic game that deserves to win.

blackblades11d ago

Getting old bro, hell its already bro comeback with something new.

Chexs199011d ago

I was pretty entertained though. It was a solid show this year :)

Sharky23110d ago

Besides all the crappy reveals... they actually had a show I could take serious this year.

Seeing all those folks on stage you could tell that they earned this through sheer hard work. Nothing beats talent and determination. Hold the salt.

Genkins11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

I think that's also one major thing to highlight. the god of war director made well use of his time to express this. respect. all companies put their efforts in.

"Nothing beats talent and determination"

EA : Hold my beer

Jokes aside though, I'm glad it won. I was worried RDR 2 would just sweep the awards but GoW definitely deserved it's success, it's arguably GOAT of the generation.

PhantomS4211d ago

It was a shitty show as usual. Overhyped again. GOW rightful won it's deserved the award but for all his "world-changing announcements" there were 3 in total that was exciting.

Brave_Losers_Unite11d ago

What do you expect from dorito man? He is a walking hype

PhantomS4211d ago

@Brave_Losers_Unite

I expect nothing but overhype and him pretending he is some sort of gaming icon when he is a terrible personality with a over massive ego. I've been saying it for a while that this show was going to be dull and lackluster.

neutralgamer199211d ago

Phantom

The outer worlds alone was worth it but I didn't watch the whole thing

DevilOgreFish11d ago

agreed, the awards was the only thing holding the show together. a massive letdown with the vibe for additional content. a game trailer was shown twice if i remember correctly. very little input from japan. they're usually the best with trailers.

dumahim11d ago

I'm shocked, SHOCKED I say, that there was no hint of Kojima or a Death Stranding trailer.

blackblades11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

After all these years you should know better.

Critic4l_Strik311d ago

yeah. Only thing i was looking forward to was the GOTY.

Well deserved

Just surprised it won.

Was the show actually good this year?

Chexs199011d ago

It was pretty great :)
Some people on here are just complaining because they thought they would be watching an E3 stream, and not an award show

Rude-ro11d ago

The live performance of rdd2 music was really good.
The show still feels stiff.
The reveals were meh.
Pacing was still rough...
But I fell it was the best one yet to date.
The music performances were far better to me

imtiyaz611d ago

The show sucked but I am very happy for SSM.

Muzikguy11d ago

I just bought this game on Black Friday. Can’t wait to start it, but I think I’ll be playing DQXI first.

Veneno11d ago

Good choice. The game is pretty good but what kills it is Atreus. He is a poorly designed character that makes you want to cringe. And also the enemy variety is as bad as BOTW.

UCForce11d ago

@Venono Atreus is poorly designed character ? I don’t think so. And no, God of War isn’t that close Zelda Breath of The Wild.

ShadowWolf71211d ago

@Veneo ???

Atreus and watching him/the bond between them change and grow is one of the best things about that game.

Veneno10d ago

I agree that the story elements involving their bonding could have been something exceptional and some parts truly were. The reason Atreus boils my blood is that he is distinctly anachronistic when put against all of the other story elements in the game. He looks and acts nothing like Kratos. He also behaves like some sort of spoiled suburban kid constantly throwing tantrums.

There are also not enough main characters in the game. The weight of the plot isn't felt as much when it affects only 2 characters. It's obvious that they tried to do another Last of Us type of story invloving an odessy of a father and son. But TLOU had so many supporting cast with real consequences that affected the main characters, the story, and the world within the game. You need to have strong supporting characters because , well , someone needs to die. Kratos and Atreus do not experience loss of any kind. Yes they did lose the mother but she has no presence in this game worth caring about and that loss happens before the game starts. Had they shown the loss of the mother as a character in the game it would have had more of an impact. Overall there's just so much exposition that the story feels cheap. Show, don't tell is the golden rule.

I could go on but this post is long enough.

Whoooo!

I agree- well deserved!

Spenok11d ago

I was actually surprised it wasn't a total shit show as usual, though he did hype it up more than it deserved.

As for God of War, it totally deserved it. I'm inclined to agree with this.

As it should.

remixx11610d ago

You are a walking bowl of cringey salt

IamTylerDurden110d ago (Edited 10d ago )

God of War is Game of Gen, well deserved. Cory learned so much while he was away and it showed in the depth and storytelling in GoW. The franchise always had great combat and visuals, but now it is the total package. The incredible narrative setup combined with the power of the PS5 should usher in an incredible next installment. It's truly exciting to know such quality is on the way. Horizon sequel, God of War sequel, TLoU 2. These are incredibly high brow, A1 quality adult oriented games that only sony can deliver.

DrumBeat10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Congrats to the team at SSM. Even though God of War wasn't my favorite game this year, I believe it deserves the honor. Very well crafted game. Very solidly structured with excellent combat. The visuals were also top notch. Best particle effects I've ever seen.

I was worried they'd just hand it to RDR2 like they've done all night but Kratos prevailed! Well deserved!

Eonjay11d ago

Krakos is a god killer after all.

Nitrowolf211d ago (Edited 11d ago )

Which is so odd at the same time given how many awards rdr2 won, this announcement left me really surprised and glad

Eonjay11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

Actually Nitro

They both won several awards. I think they both won 3 each

blackblades11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

Well they won 3 awards, but yeah we were like RD2 gonna take it all back on gematsu.

Incredibly well deserved. GOW is a masterpiece in every sense of the word.

Genkins11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

congratulations to also playground games and rockstar games for winning awards too. all 3 companies.

BeardedDrachen11d ago

Playground winning an award was kinda forced....

jojo31910d ago

"Playground winning an award was kinda forced...."
In what way? Was there a better racing/sports games this year?

porkChop10d ago

It was a well deserved win. Each of the nominees was a masterpiece in its own right, and all the devs should feel proud. For me it was between God of War and RDR2. I think both deserved it, and I'm really glad one of them took home the win. 2018 was a really great year for games, so let's hope 2019 will be even better.

Guess GOW decided to be better instead of being sorry.

derek11d ago

I see what you did there hahaha!!!

robtion10d ago

Nice!

And it managed it without endless dlc, microtransactions, lootboxes etc. Makes the victory even sweeter. Bring on the Sequel.

remixx11610d ago

A lesson for devs to learn from...but they wont

DrumBeat10d ago

It came down to BOY vs BOAH. In the end, BOY won. Contrats to BOY.

NarutoFox11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

Congratulations to Sony and Sony Santa Monica!

BeardedDrachen11d ago

you mean Santa Monica Studios?

BeardedDrachen11d ago

Oh whatever. Naruto’s original comment was ‘Contratulations to Sony”.
Sony Santa Monica won the award.

BehindTheRows11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

Errr...that would still be Sony. Santa Monica isn't Naughty Dog, where they were purchased. They are built from the ground up, within Sony. And, even if they were purchased, they'd still be a subsidiary of SIE.

His statement was correct.

BeardedDrachen11d ago

Technically.. sure. But it’s SSM that put their blood sweat and tears into the game. Sony just greenlit it. Contratulating SONY for winning GOTY is misplaced and Naruto knew that.

BehindTheRows11d ago

Nah, you're just making a big deal out of nothing.

NarutoFox11d ago (Edited 11d ago )

@Bearded

Really? What's the big deal? Sony Santa Monica is still part of Sony 🤷🏻‍♂️

BeardedDrachen11d ago

If it’s not a big deal why did you edit your comment?

Mr_Writer8511d ago

And where did Santa Monica get the funds to make, market and release the game from?

StormSnooper10d ago

You guys are arguing over semantics in case you haven’t noticed yet, lol just hug it out. It’s the same thing, Sony is SSM, SSM is Sony, there.

BehindTheRows10d ago

@StormSnooper: There is actually only one who argued semantics. Everyone else agreed that it's the same thing.

BeardedDrachen10d ago

@Behind

I know people have their positivity Goggles on bc God of War won GOTY, but congratulating Sony before the studio that made the game is short sighted. Fox wouldn't have edited it if it's actually the same thing.

IamTylerDurden110d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Sony Santa Monica is Sony, hence the name. SSM is a home grown first party studio. Congratulations to Sony and all the talent in Santa Monica. Cory Barlog deserves all the accolades he is receiving, Sony is blessed to have this creative genius back, and i truly believe that this game is just the appetizer. This was simply a setup for the next game. Get ready for Ragnarok.

BehindTheRows10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

No matter how many mountains you scream that from, your original reply to him won't be any less pointless. You made a big deal over nothing. It is what it is.

It wasn't a big deal at all. Nothing wrong with your original statement. It just, for some odd reason, ruffled a few feathers. :)
