Gow winning was a surprise because pressão overrates rockstar, reading dead Wins best narrative. Spiderman won zero and that is a fucking shame. But it had tough competitivo. Sony fox on stage was the most cringe shit i ever seen, furries beat weaboos and fans of MT Little pony on the weirdest scale by a country mile

Forza continues to dominate the racing genre, well deserved. Into the Breach is an amazing game, Subset games are so underrated, glad to see them getting something. GOTY was clearly out of RDR2 and GOW and neither game interests me.. and as for the award show, pretty boring and long.

Kinda easy to do when you are the only racing game out there and the other game is having a identity crisis.

Maybe.. this generation has offered many new Racing games and to Turn 10's credit, both there racing series are delivering and there not just flukes or out of the blue one hit wonders. Mario Kart 8 did beat FM7 or FM6 one year I cannot remember which one to be exact and Rocket League beat FH2 or something like that, but 4 out of 6 RGOTY games is very impressive in one generation and that goes unnoticed by the majority.

Next gen will be different, GT and PC will be better games and so will other racers. It be interesting to see how Forza continues to maintain there dominance next gen.

GT will only make an appearance in one year of all of next gen if they keep up their current nonsense so if Forza keeps up wiith their yearly releases then yh... they should take at least another 3/4 awards next gen.

I honestly don't think Sony cares. GT isn't going anywhere and Forza winning awards doesn't really impact their bottom line. The series did for them what it needed to, and with a new, proper, release (GT7/8/whatever), they will probably get things back on track. It is a massive brand and they need to abandon much of what went wrong with Sport.

With their new push on 1st Party content, I wouldn't even eliminate the possibility of a new racing property altogether, but considering they just took home the biggest GOTY award around, again, I don't think they're losing sleep over Forza winning best racing game in a year where they didn't even release one.

It all depends how you look at the awards. In terms of popularity or sales or quality everyone is going to have there own opinions. There are also many GOTY awards that get given out at different outlets. Weather you take The Game Awards, Gamespots, IGNs or the 200 others seriously.

The point here is that Forza has been left unchallenged through-out this entire generation and even when it had competition it basically didn't matter because it over came the challenges and basically took the racing genre on themselves. If you are a racing fan than this will peak there interests more than the other awards. Different taste for different people I suppose. I am a huge Blizzard fan yet I didn't care about OverWatch winning GOTY because OverWatch just isn't for me, instead I found other games that year I loved more. 

You are probably right, maybe Sony don't care as much as they use to in the racing genre, probably the same way they don't care about the FPS genre either as GG moved away from Killzone. I feel Sony has found there strength in the 3rd person action games. Its something they do really well in, much like how Xbox do really well in the FPS and Racing market and Nintendo in the Platforming market etc. Each company has there strengths which is good for the industry.

Of course everyone has their own opinions. No different than any other awards show for stuff like movies and music. But, at the end of the day, individual opinions isn't what people are going to remember. That's why they do the VGAs in the first place. It matters.

I'm just saying that Sony isn't worried about a 'battle' with Forza when they're moving onto new horizons and have benefitted as a result. Losing an award in a genre you didn't participate in is hardly something to fret over.

I agree, what ever Sony is doing is working wonders for them and there's no need to change there methods or strategy.

Sony isn't worried over smaller awards, I am sure of that, but to be fair, you can argue that same point with Nintendo and Xbox as they didn't compete with the main GOTY award due to they didn't participate in it either. Nintendo's game (Smash Bros) releases too late to be nominated in 2018 and Xbox's next big hitter isn't due out until 2019 and didn't release a major game in 2018 aside from a racing game that oddly enough wasn't nominated for GOTY considering its one of the better reviewed games in 2018.

The difference is God of War winning over a juggernaut like RDR2 is a big deal. And Microsoft released 3rd person action games this year. Neither were GOTY material, which is a problem on their end. Sony had two nominees on the list. That is why I said they're not worried. 

For Forza, it's like a champion boxer bragging that he beat the pants off a drunken rookie. It matters none. Ali vs Foreman? A far bigger deal. That's the difference.
