Thats bullshit 

High sales on a game or twitter followers and YouTube content creating is not equivalent to high viewers of the most acclaimed award show in gaming. How many oscars did the top 10 highest grossing movies of all time get in total? In sports as another example the MVP does not always win the championship or even make it to the final match they win it based on talent shown that year. The award means a ton to them because its from the biggest award giver they are not working hard to get the award from a small magazine or newspaper just like game devs from all around the world say their goal is to win the game award trophies just like monster hunter world devs said last night 

The game awards is so fucking important that it managed to get sony nintendo and xbox to join together on stage and tell everyone we are all United no matter what console you play on. 

Clever? Whatever makes you guys happy it won't change the facts God of War is GOTY 2018 and it beat none other than monster sales red dead redemption 2 

The game awards is still regarded by many as a bit of a joke, yea its good fun to watch and there are some good reveals but its no where near the levels of oscars. At the end of the day RDR2 outscored GoW on both Meta and opencritic, but that didnt dictate it. Just opinions, stop trying to make the the game awards something it's not just because your prefered game won.

Stop downplaying the game awards just because a game you dont like and didnt even played Wins the Two most important awards



 

haven't played my copy yet. still somewhat happy it won RDR 2 has way too many gameplay problems for me to consider it goty

Imho best soundtrack should’ve gone to Astro Bot, but that sadly wasn’t even nominated.

To be frank it even is my GOTY. It definitely was GoW and than Astro Bot happened.

That ear worm mess, I had to play with the sound off at times so I wouldn't end up with it playing on the back of my mind for hours and hours. 

Exactly..probably the most catchy and video-gamey in a nostalgic way soundtrack I’ve heard in the last decade. It’s incredibly uplifting and yes, the ear worms are real.

People that selected RD2 over GOW to win goty most likely a R* fanboy and not really into games that much.

I would assume that a lot of people would vote for RDR2 instead of GoW simply because GoW is not on their preferred platform...

Well, understandable. Usually people only vote for stuff they experienced themself. How should they vote on GoW, if they never played it. That's exactly the reason I think, a GOTY is harder to get for an exclusive than for a multiplat game. Makes the success more impressive IMHO.

Fantastic game, really happy for Santa Monica Studios and all the developers who created this masterpiece!



Completely deserved.Not only its an excellent game, but its a brilliant reimagening of the franchise.

Also really happy that read Dead 2 didnt win.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Nah, if you did not go out and buy a PS4 to play GOW then you a fan boy 🙂🙂



Very well deserved.

GOW was a reboot of the franchise and went about adventure and RPG and world design like only a few games has ever managed. That level design effect where you know where you are by landmarks and scenery that very few open world games has accomplished. The game was realy a breath of fresh air in so many ways.

I really feel RDR2 is overatted. Its basically the exact same game with a few new mechanics, prettier graphics and thats it. Its a great game... but if you have played RDR or GTA you pretty much know what you are getting.

I also really feel GOW should have won best audio/music too though. Its min them is literally iconic already. That kinda sound that 5 years from now a black screen can be shown with just 4 seconds of its main theme and everyone will know what it is. RDR2 music is already forgettable and generic. IMO, as far as game music goes, not nly should it sound good but it should carry the franchise such that whenever you hear it you know what game it is.

And what does this say about metacritic and review scores? This just adds to my resolved that game reviews are joke.

FUN FACT:

RDR2. 97MC, 72 User reviews

GOW. 94MC, 92 User reviews
