Death Stranding should also be up for best puzzle game and best strategy game. Getting those ziplines down with limited bandwith can be very mentally engaging.

Well, hope Sekiro takes it, it looks really good.

As much as its a totally new engine

If it was just a new engine, it could have just been a remaster.
REmake 2 is more like a re-imagining of the events of RE2.

remakes dont deserve to be rewarded

What's your reasoning behind that?

Fans asked them to do this. And they did, in very high quality. But screw the development team? No recognition deserved?
Even if the original RE2 had been at the awards (and it hasn't), this isn't a Remaster. It's predominantly a new experience.
The names of the characters and some locations are the same. But that's about it.



It's a shame Iceborne is only in one category for RPG, it should also be in best on going game but that is the least of what is wrong with these nominees.



 

It can't be said that I especially care what games get what awards. My opinions stand on their own. Some of my personal favorites this year so far though include:

Death Stranding (sorry VGC!)
A Plague Tale: Innocence
Gato Roboto (who would've guessed?!)
Untitled Goose Game
Cadence of Hyrule
Return of the Obra Dinn
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action

@Hiku, im just unhappy with the fact that instead of going for something fresh they rehash old content. I dont deny it takes them hard work, but its time not used for something different.
Fyi if its about HD remasters in general, im more harsh and throw it in the lazy cashgrab department, and hope every remaster bombs

I haven't played it so I don't fully get the context. However, I can read between the lines and... YOU STRAIGHT SAVAGE!



How is Disco Elysium not up for GotY?

That's kind of a narrow way to look at it.  Remasters are most often done by smaller teams, who probably wouldn't be able to make their own games anyway.  It can create revenue streams that allow developers to gamble more on experimental titles.  Contrary to what people may think, it actually can encourage developers to invest in new IPs. 

Before remakes became a popular thing, a developer who made a great game would only reap the benefit for one console generation.  With remasters and remakes, it allows the developer to profit off of it for a much longer time.  Similar to how great movies or albums can keep making money throughout their lives, a great game can now do the same.  This can push developers to make something that will truly shine and withstand the test of time.
