Good news for Resident Evil. :)

I'm still somewhat hesitant to give rewards to demos and trailers. Especially those with little to no gameplay.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

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.

What makes a game eligible? Does it need a playable demo on the show floor or that journalists could play?

I hope that is the case. But in that regard, did RE2 have one? I don't recall seeing one, but I'm not a big RE fan, so wasn't really looking.

 

Either way, seeing Anthem as best PC game makes me see this list as shit.



I have no problem with RE2 being best of show. From what I saw, it really did look fresh but familiar at the same time. The way you can shoot limbs off zombies and blast them with a shotgun and watch there body fall apart was disgusting but delightful at the same time. It looks like a true successor of RE4.

The link to the eligibility rules are in the OP. The rules state as follows:

"To be eligible for nomination, games must be "hands-on playable" to voting publications for at least 5 minutes of gameplay during E3 2018."

Understandable, but Smash Bros. Ultimate certainly earned it's award.

I wonder how close it was for Smash Bros. Ultimate to win Best Fighting Game, considering DOA6 and Soul Calibur VI.

Depends on how good DOA6 and Soul Calibur VI are so far.



No Sekiro?
GoT should have won all.

Seeing a multiplat game being PC's "best game" just makes me see the list as flawed, especially when that game also has another award, making it not really the type of game that's "The best on PC". Hell there was a strategy title in that award section, and that was an actual PC based game. 

Critic and award shows almost always screw up the PC award section, mostly because they either don't care or don't know what's actually popular on PC, let alone know what PC has on it's end.
