Over a first-time director for Astral Chain?

Wow.

Huh? Since when has Kojima been Chinese?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Really pokémon is the game of the year. Death stranding is an odd choice for many of the awards but ffs Pokémon SS doesn't deserve any GOTY award. The list would have been better if it was only Astral chain and Sekiro.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Sword and Shield best game? 



Seriously, pokemon? You COULD make a convincing argument for three houses over persona 5, but sword/shield?



Well, at least FF XIV: Shadowbringers won best online game. It's amazing how SE turned the game around.



Well apparently nothing came out in 2019 that I give a damn about.

Its a fan vote apparently.

I don't think it invalidates it, nevertheless. If fans in Japan like Sw/Sh, I don't see what's wrong with that. It's ok to like or dislike the games. Apparently, some fans in Japan have different tastes (shocker!).

And before people talk about sales being a factor, only S/M and D/P won in their respective years (I may have mixed one or the other titles, but regardless...).
