Here are the complete list of winners for The Game Awards 2021, ranging from big awards like Game of The Year and more!
Ratchet and Clank got shafted
Completely agree. Action and Adventure should of went to it.
Nah Metroid was better to me. Played both doubt you did.
Best art and game direction should have went to ratchet and clank instead of deathloop... Very disappointing...
Yeah but Metroid. Was a better game though I Dono how clack got no rewards as it was a great game. Always has been same with jack and baxster waiting for that game to rise from the dead
Havent had the chance to play it yet, but I have been seeing all outlets saying Dread was spectacular and even Goty worthy but again same outlets say It Takes Two is a masterpiece. After reviewing the winners, I think they might have got it right. Have yet to try Dread tho.
Dude metroid could be done without any problems and barely an inconvenience on the Neo Geo from 30 years ago. Doesn't bring nothing new to table. Nintendo is been doing this for ages.
For once I actually agree with darkrider....*somewhat, Dread is great don't get me wrong Nintendo makes some great games but they rarely ever push any new boundaries or in other words they play it safe in just about every area of new tech, gameplay & modes, they do try new things in regards to hardware tho' but nothing as far as pushing new tech advances.
After playing both Metroid and Ratchet, I'd say that Ratchet did a more convincing job of introducing the next level of gaming. Metroid was decent but it didn't do a good job at showing what we waited so long to see. Ratchets world's were so breathtaking you wanted to see the next one and wanted the game to be longer. Though the formula was pretty much the same it was its presentation that made it stand out. Metroid wasn't much different than its 3DS versions. Now once Prime 4 comes out, I'm more than sure that Metroid will have more stand out moments.
What's considered spam?🤔
Agreed. It was just another obligatory token Nintendo award.
Deservedly. It did nothing.
Guaridans of the Galaxy wins for narrative? These awards are a joke. Glad Kena got some recognition though.
Gotg has a good narrative and its telling execution is excellent but I would probably give it to Life is Strange:True Colours. Its a tough one. Gotg actually was very well done narratively and did a fantastic job in recreating the characters and their timing etc.
Marvel is the low point of human storytelling in our 1 million year history.
@Magog Low point? I guess your OPINION is absolute, huh? Lonely much? Marvel was built from the bottom up so what have you built as an example of your mastery of storytelling? What do we have to measure your prowess?
I would've given it to True Colors also
I'm happy both True Colors (Games for Impact) and GOTG (Best Narrative) got awards. Square Enix needs to understand that single player games should be their primary focus going forward.
Given how he is reacting, I’d say its pretty clear he hasnt even played the game and yet somehow is complaining about the narrative
Dude, that was honestly one of the best narratives in a while. Like the amount of heart and character arcs that happens. So much unique and fun dialogue that just expanded on the GotG lore. Honestly, what game this year tops the narrative in your opinion? This is all coming from someone who slammed the sh*t out Guardians when it was first shown. Ended up being my favorite game of this year.
GOTG winning for best narrative was well deserved....you'd know that if you played it.
Exactly, great game.
Jason E. Kelley should have won best performance as Colt, either him or Ozioma Akagha as Julianna, they had some grat banter between each other in the game.
I agree, overall I found it odd that she would win considering Lady Dimitrescu is barely in the game and when she does show up its not a super in depth character
"s barely in the game and when she does show up its not a super in depth character" Exactly I thought this when she won the Golden Joystick award, she's an overrated character who basically won because of the memes and the "big tall sexy vampire woman" internet chatter. Least the others in the running were pretty much main characters.
I just can’t believe It Takes Two won the best game of this year. I’m sure it was fun but the best this year has to offer? Not by a long shot.
GOTG was my GOTY, so I didn't have a dog in the fight. But I knew It Takes Two would get it simply so Josef could talk his ish again 😂
GotG was mine, too!
Not by a long shot? Look at the user reviews online. PS4 9.0 PS5 9.2 PC 8.9 Steam 96% (overwhelming positive) based on 50,000+ reviews. People loved the game. It was a well deserved win.
Just play it. Its ridiculous how good it is. It has more suprises and mechanics than multiple AAA games combined. No idea how they pulled it off.
Doki Doki Literature Club Plus is pure effing genius and not like anything I've played in 32 years of gaming and it got no nominations. How you think I feel? Lol
Well I mean it's been a shitty year to be honest, I personally would have picked Returnal but it wasn't even nominated. Like I've enjoyed other games but nothing where I've gone "yeah I can see that winning"
Congrats to Josef Fares. He's a really cool guy, so it's nice that he got his moment in the spotlight with It Takes Two winning GOTY. I'm glad Kena: Bridge of Spirits won Best Indie and Best Indie Debut game. Ratchet & Clank was nominated for so much and was shafted every category.
Returnal won for best action game! My GOTY getting some love. Sucks there wasn't a DLC reveal at the show though...
Weird that the best platformer category got forgotten, when it was confirmed to exist before the show... I thought for sure that was where Psychonauts 2 would win.
So the best action game was not even nominated for goty? Not even sure I can make sense of that.
Same reason best Racing/Sports wasn't nominated.
the whole show was a joke. so much woke bs
The only category where I scratched my head was Best Art Direction going to Deathloop. That one made littke sense to me. I felt Ratchet and/or Kena were more deserving. Oh and IMO Guardians of the Galaxy shouldve won for best soundtrack.
I scratched my head when FH5 won the Trophy for best sound...come on..🙄
I haven't played it, so I can't really give an opinion. However Returnal's sound was phenomenal. FH5 would had to have been pretty damn special to best it.
It's got great music and the team when to great lengths to capture and produce Raytraced Audio. Which game did nearly as much?
Xbox game studios games finally winning some awards, long may it continue.
