Oh, I see people are already working hard to poison the well if Death Stranding wins by blaming it on Keighley being biased. Of course, that's pretty silly, since there are like 50 people voting, but that's what makes such arguments fun to watch.

Regardless, it's a relatively down year, as to be expected this late in the generation. None of those games would win most years. Some years, none of those games would likely finish above third, and a couple of them probably wouldn't get nominated. Not that it really matters, of course, as people make a far bigger deal out of this than it deserves.

I’m shocked that Dorito Pope’s show nominated Death Stranding for every possible category lol.

I really need to play Control. Maybe I’ll get it on a cheap BF sale.



I like Death Stranding, but it just feels wrong since we know the relationship between Geoff and Kojima. I mean Geoff is even in the game. However I wouldn't say no thanks to the shitstorm it will create if it wins



Feels like some games are missing from the GotY award. Gears 5, KH3, Pokemon Sword / Shield, and Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

I think Mads Mikkelsen and Norman Reedus did a good job, but I would say Troy Baker was the stand out in Death Stranding.

I think it would be a pretty big upset if Smash Bros. Ultimate won GOTY, which I am rooting for.
Its weird to say that, but I think there are some good nominations here overall.
I'm glad FE3H and Astral Chain are getting nominated in a category, but it would've been nice to see them in more than one each.

Apparently the cutoff date for nominations this year was before Pokémon and Jedi Fallen Order released. Technically they are eligible for nominations at the 2020 Game Awards, but considering the competition they are up against next year (TLOU 2, Cyberpunk, FF7 Remake, Halo Infinite, Ori 2, Assassin’s Creed Vikings, BOTW 2 according to rumors, etc.) their chances of nominations next year aren’t great since they nominate 6 games only I believe.

I honestly thought Fire Emblem would make the GOTY nominee list. Seems pretty evident that either Sekiro, The Outer Worlds, Resident Evil 2 or the Amazon simulator are going to take the award, though. I'm inclined to think it will go to Resi, though.

Wait what!? He Is in the game? Lol.

I'm in the second map (although i haven't finished it), Is he in the first one? I remember seeing one dude who seemed familiar but now that you mention this i think it might have been him (was he wearing a lab coat?).

I didn't come across him in my playthrough. I guess hes in a side quest.
