It might be a bit early for these questions, but I'm a bit bored so I thought "why not?"
Anyways, whether we like it or not, the Keighley's show has been embraced by the gaming media as the "official" GOTY Award, so I guess we have no more choice than to go with it, for now.
So, nowadays gamers and forum users like to use Metacritics as a metric to try to guess what games will be nominated for the "Game of the Year" category, but history has shown us that the TGA judges seem to have a different approach when it comes to their voting. For example, for the past 5 years, they have had a game with a score in the low 80s amongst their nominees, these are;
2018 - Assassin's Creed Odyssey (83)
2019 - Death Stranding (82)
2020 - Ghost of Tsushima (83)
2021 - Resident Evil Village (84)
2022 - Stray (83)
Now, it is worth remembering that, in most of these years, there were games with a score above 90 that were ignored by the judges (Like Half Life:Alyx (93) and Ori and the Will of the Wisps (90) both in 2020).
So my questions to you guys are;
a) do you think they will continue this trend and nominate a game with a score in the low 80s this year?
b) what game will that be?
c) what game with a score in the low 80s would YOU nominate?
d) what game with a score above 90 do you think will be snubbed this year?
