It's what happens when you focus on the quality of the game instead of the politics behind the scenes. 

That just makes Borderlands 3's win even more mysterious. 

Makes it sound like the category was rigged for them.

Yeahh..cling to the comment from the guy that just doesn't like Borderlands...



I can't believe the amazing announcement of Little Nightmares 2 is not considered in these so called "awards"?

As far as I'm concerned LN2 is the only game that got me enthused and hyped throughout this GamesCom 2019.



I for one am loving that meltdown, happening over on Era, about THQN winning, and how a good chunk of the users within that thread are trying to look for ways to take pot shots at anyone who likes THQN, let alone wishing to buy their games. Era is truly becoming a cesspool of toxic thought patrol police, and I hope it'll eventually go the way of Gaf, someday, but not today. Either way, their little hissy fit over one publisher winning is telling.

To be fair, I fail to see how liking something is more valid inherently than disliking it. 

But yeah, my comment was obviously meant as a joke, lol.

I know. Just wondering why he is using your joke to push his ideas. :P 

As far as your opinion, if you don't like something, you won't root for it to win any awards (for me, that game would be Fortnite).

I'm fine with Borderlands, I just don't trust developers who'd send private investigators to someone's house JUST FOR BEING A JOURNALIST.

THQN won that award, and half of ERa had the biggest shit fit in history (how I saw it anyway), where they basically shat constantly on the publisher, over that one Reddit 8chan AMA thread. They constantly went out of their way to basically dogpile anyone who dared "support" them, by either buying future games, buying upcoming games or simply giving them kudos for winning the award. 

In short, many people were banned, good/bad, over one publisher winning a single award, from a single convention, over video games. The mods had to lock the thread twice.

The thread in question (have fun): https://www.resetera.com/threads/thq-nordic-voted-best-games-company-of-gamescom-2019.136970/

I honestly cannot wait for the day, when that crap-fest, that cesspool of a site, is shut down, and gone for good. When gaf shut down, I was actually happy, because it meant that half the demanding, zealous snowflakes, would go somewhere else and not interfere with the gaming industry ever again, but here we are, Era trying to poke it's ugly head into the industry on a near constant basis, because something doesn't align with their beliefs/values. That site borders so closely to "thought police", that it's not even funny. 

They are also shitting on a trans journo, who basically called their entire site exactly for what it is. Of course they didn't take that well, and continue to discredit her, for not being like Kotaku/Polygon.
