By last gen do you mean Wii U/3ds/vita/PS4/Xbox One? If so, you didn't think Spider-Man, Mario Kart 8, Zelda Botw (was a Wii U game originally before Switch was rushed out) were great? I'm sure there were at least some great games.

But yes, I do think this generation is starting off better. Took Switch a while to work through the Wii U Potts, but since then has produced some absolutely fantastic games and PS5/Series XS seem to be off to a great start as well.

Its easy to not think of Nintendo when thinking of a gen. But I guess I meant a last gen as 2014. First year of playstation 4 and xbox1. I wad comparing both first year not the full gen to the first year of this one. Would make no sense to do so. 

For me it's impossible to not think of Nintendo when thinking of a gen. They make some of the greatest games each generation.

For 2/3rds of them, sure. Are we forgetting Nintendo, or do you view Switch as in the same gen as PS4/Xbone?

I see Switch as part of PS4 and Xbone gen

That's fair, thanks for clarification!

Ah yes.

Winter E3 with an Award Show attached to it.

Yep, except now E3 has mostly become this segmented, safe video clip compilation rather than a live show, so I actually find the atmosphere of TGA more enjoyable, especially since you never know what's gonna happen in a live show. We've had some crazy things already happen live in TGA's past so I'm looking forward to more this year lol.

That was such a legendary moment. Whether you agreed with him or not, that moment has been and will be referenced for years to come. I don't even remember why he was hating on the Oscars, I very much doubt it's the same reason I don't watch the Oscars, but what a way to go about that. Seeing Geoff cringe in horror, unable to stop that man was amusing in itself.

Was I the only excited to see TLOU 2 winning?

The game is amazing, so not the only one

I only voted in like 4 categories this year. RE8 for Action Adventure and GOTY, Bowsers Fury for Family and BOTW2 for most anticipated.

Well I can't comment on the gameplay, since I didn't play it myself, but I watched all of it and I hated the story.

How so? The story is the best thing about the game

If that's so then I'll never play it.

Well, I don't know if "excited" is the right term I would use in my case. I knew it was going to win, that was never in doubt, and deservedly so. 

That game gets FAR too much hate, the vast majority of which it doesn't deserve.
