Winners of the 2021 Gamescom Awards have been announced across various platforms and genres and nearly two dozen categories.
I guess Sony's absence left all their games entirely out of the running. They should have had some form of presentation for their games while there just to get the names in the running. Now it looks like they have nothing.
@christopher i would agree in full if sony were having trouble to sell on europe.
Just because you're #1 doesn't mean you sit on your laurels and act like #1 can't be taken from you.
Yes it does. And along with gamepass Xbox has positioned itself as much better value for your money....doesn't mean that Xbox will sell better but it does mean that is possible that Sony doesn't actually have much to show I mean if i was still a kid I'd likely get the Xbox since about 70% of games i play in a year all miltiplat and gamepass would Hi e me the biggest value assuming those games would land on it. But even if not....being short on money gamepass would be an easy win for me. Sony fan here. Currently with a ps5 and enjoying all it's exclusives and games but I do think there will be a draught after god of war and horizon
Draught, why? You won't be playing the other 70% of multiplats on your PS5?
DoKev trailer was 90% better than any of the named winners
I just have to say, this comment reminds me why I love N4G.
DoKev had me going "wtf is this weird rubbish" to "haha OK this is the weirdest thing i've ever seen, but looks interestsing" to "Holy s$&* this game looks incredible!" In one trailer.
Appreciate you mentioning this game. Hadn't heard of it before.
Horizon got no nominations, kinda weird.
Is it me or it’s a bit like selecting the winner of a 2 person competition. Like was there really a Gamescom impact? Like I felt that the best thing coming out of this was a trailer for Gamepass pc, the Horizon frame boost and the Halo series X console debacle. Like it was basically like the indies convention that happened a month ago.
Like wow, like you might like be on to something. Like I didn't think of it, like that way. Like you are like totally blowing my mind, like wow.
So Nintendo was basically out of two games Gee I can't imagine which one was going to win...the Mario one or the same old Just Dance game. Such a hard decision.
Dying Light: Platinum Edition was announced for Switch. Can't wait!
And yet Sony doesn’t need these to sell consoles
I'm happy to see the Super Mario franchise getting more love
I'm sorry but giving award nominations and/or awards to games that aren't even released yet is beyond pathetic.
I cannot imagine anyone who follows games takes these awards seriously. As a back of the box quote it will have some use as marketing to the more casual gamer I suppose, but these awards really are pointless..
