So many angry nintendont here can't handle this all nominations for Death Stranding. You should calm down for minute kids. Just take a breath, it's only games. I know everything that's not Nintendo does not count to win GoTy.
Moderated - think-man
Why are you assuming that all of the people who don't think that Death Stranding belongs are Nintendo fans? I don't think that Death Stranding belongs in alot of these categories, and I'm a multiplat gamer.
1. Geoff Keighley, who started The Game Awards and hosts them, is a well known massive Kojima fanboy. He has found an excuse to bring Kojima out on stage at the last 3 or 4 TGA's. Geoff Keighley also stars in a cameo role in Death Stranding, which is a bit of a conflict of interest.
2. The nominations are decided by a Jury of 80 gaming outlets and influencers, and Keighley himself is not on the Jury supposedly. Problem is that Keighley can handpick which outlets and influencers get on the jury and which do not. Several outlets and influencers get overlooked in this process, including some of my personal most trusted game critics.
3. Death Stranding has the lowest metacritic average out of the 6 games that received a GOTY nomination, at 83. Several games with higher meta scores got snubbed thanks to the way that Keigley handpicks the voting jury, including Astral Chain (87), Fire Emblem (89), Disco Elysium (90), Devil May Cry 5 (88), and Apex Legends (89).
