Best of Show should have gone to ghost of tsushima, or last of Us part 2 imo.

Those games were not eligible for Best of Show.



Why is an old ass game like RE2 being put as Best of Show? That seems regressive, new games should be held exclusively in that category. If old games that were once amazing are able to get that award then the need to innovate will be discouraged when you can just remaster something and get a high reward instead of making something new and more amazing.

Also Ori isn't really an independent game. Should be in best platformer.

Did they showed gameplay footage of Cyberpunk or did I missed something?

I am really sorry, but if this remake is not considered trully new I dont know what is. The game looks better than pretty much 95% of all AAA exclusives this gen, and not only from a tech point of view.=. The game looks and plays completely different and it was easily one of the most exciting things to come out of this years E3.



Vote the Mayor for Mayor!

They showed it behind closed doors, and it seems that people loved it.

edit: never mind.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Isn't Fifa 19 coming to switch though?
