☂️More like it was just a great RPG with a great story that happened to have serious technical flaws on consoles. ☂️

ID: hl1w8zw

I heard about the console issues, but I upgraded my desktop so I could run it and I've thought it's been fastastic thus far. I've heard the experience on consoles has been less than subpar.

Does anybody really give a shit about these awards?

ID: hl1mk6x

Like any review ever, people only give a shit about it when it already aligns with their own opinion.

ID: hl1njzi

Like any award ever, people only complain about it when it doesn't?

4 : Anonymous2021/11/17 22:11 ID: hl1l98o

Game awards are a joke but honestly if you play the game past all the bugs and shit it does handle its rpgs mechanics well and you do feel like you’re part of the world. At least that’s my take

I know for me at least I got the sense of going from a novice bounty hunter who didn’t know shit, to a maniac cyborg killer who can kill entire buildings without ever stepping foot in said building.

Because the game awards are a joke

ID: hl1k8ob

Aren't most any award shows? at least in the arts and entertainment sector.

I mean, i know the oscars are totally not a pay to play award ceremony, but others could be

ID: hl1ki2o

The oscars are an even bigger joke.

ID: hl1o02i

That's why I stopped watching all of them years ago. It's all bullshit and a way for an industry to play themselves up to make them look better. Just play and watch what you like.

ID: hl1igfy

Yeah...I'm not sure how people haven't figured that out by now. It's mostly mainstream crap filled with a ton of AAA adverts.

ID: hl1nbkj

I think most awards shows are crap tbh.

Tales of Arise is pretty dang good

7 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:47 ID: hl1htoc

I've never heard of literally any of those other games listed.

ID: hl1ijgy

Okay I’m glad I’m not the only one

ID: hl1lt1y

Monster Hunter?



ID: hl1mjii

Nier is rather niche I feel like, even with nier automatas success

ID: hl1u08p

YS is such a brilliant series. One of the best soundtracks of any game.

ID: hl1wenw

It’s okay, not all of can be true epic gamers

ID: hl1wj1z

Thats really sad to hear. Maybe your aren't a gamer, that would make sense.

8 : Anonymous2021/11/17 22:01 ID: hl1jrog

None of those are like western games. So they’re not going to be a western game of the year

ID: hl1kbdk

All the others nominated games are JRPG.

ID: hl1n5v4

There is the answer. 4 if the 5 are jrpg, they probably wanted to put one other in there that wasn’t?

While I’ll attest to CP2077, not being the best rpg, it’s definitely a really fun game. I put over 100 hours into it and did not run into all the issues the internet claims it has. That being said my vote went to tales of arise.

Some of these are even shallower RPG's than cyberpunk. The double standards on here are whack lol.

10 : Anonymous2021/11/17 22:07 ID: hl1kqh2

I haven't played the game, but based on what I've heard, underneath all the bugs that the game initially shipped with is a truly award-worthy RPG. Surely those bugs must have been squashed by now. I'm just waiting to play it until I get a Series X (if I can ever get my hands on one) and can have the best possible experience with it.

ID: hl1mgkh

There's no nuance in game discussion anymore.

"How could Cyberpunk get nominated for best RPG when it launched buggy?!"

Because it was still a great RPG underneath it all? And the few people who were actually able to play it properly actually had a really good time?

11 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:16 ID: hl1uf4a

Cyberpunk was pretty fucking good y’all are just hating

12 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:49 ID: hl1i1vr

All super weeby games.

Nothing wrong with that, but it makes them inherently more niche.

That said, Cyberpunk is a ton of fun, but it’s super broken and even its RPG systems are flawed, and didn’t it come out last year? Why is it nominated this year?

ID: hl1l2rm

I’d wager Judgement isn’t. That’s just a Japanese game flat out.

ID: hl1id6f

Because it came out too late to be nominated last year.

13 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:12 ID: hl1tw6h

I didnt play any of the others

14 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:17 ID: hl1ugu2

Gets more ridiculous when you see the games nominated for Game of the Year, but Forza Horizon 5, the ONLY AAA GAME TO RECEIVE AN AVERAGE REVIEW SCORE ABOUT 90 THIS WHOLE YEAR isn't even nominated.

15 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:57 ID: hl1jamy

Because it was a great rpg. Maybe more people liked it, rhan you think because of a very loud minority on the Internet.

16 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:27 ID: hl1ex41

I mean out of all these that you posted cyberpunk would definitely be the biggest rpg of this group lol

17 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:51 ID: hl1icup

If you play it now that it's been fixed it's actually quite good. Problem is that nobody cares and they just remember the dumpster fire of a launch

ID: hl1n3t7

Yep. That's how I feel too. I get that a ton of console players had a really bad experience and that shouldn't be overlooked, but I played on PC and never really had any issues at all. The game is fun and the story is pretty great as well. If we judge it solely based on the gameplay and story and not its horrendous launch, it absolutely deserves the nomination.

18 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:25 ID: hl1vkwj

Because it actually is a good rpg?

19 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:16 ID: hl1d8ts

Awards are about money, not reality

20 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:22 ID: hl1e0pl

Lost judgement is another level. Those Japanese aaa games really aren't marketed to the west as heavily as they should be.

I loved it and I only bought it because I found the yakuza games "quirky".

Judgement wasn't quirky it was awesome....

ID: hl1lbwj

Currently playing through the first Judgment game now (just finished chapter 5). Game had a pretty slow start, but it has its hooks in me now. Heard that Lost Judgment is a straight up refinement of the first, so I can't wait to pick it up.

21 : Anonymous2021/11/17 22:07 ID: hl1kpcr

Wow another post crapping on cyberpunk.

22 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:15 ID: hl1d514

Because the game actually isn't that bad. People just had too high expectations.

23 : Anonymous2021/11/17 21:17 ID: hl1def7

Awards are bs.same thing in the film ind

ID: hl1eyii

same thing with music industry cough cough Grammys

24 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:26 ID: hl1vsai

Holy fuck because it deserves it.

25 : Anonymous2021/11/17 22:04 ID: hl1kawx

To be fair, I have never heard of the games listed below. But in the same breath, as much as I enjoyed CP, I think the state it was released in and the issues it still has doesn't merit it being nominated for any kind of awards.

26 : Anonymous2021/11/17 22:16 ID: hl1lwnv

Because the industry would be massively affected when one of the most expensive games ever made isn’t at least given nominations.

27 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:47 ID: hl1yjey

Because ya'll were so obsessed with your glitch-hunt that you didn't notice the award worthy performances, score, story, and gameplay.

28 : Anonymous2021/11/17 23:50 ID: hl1ywla

I don't know what 6 of those games even are. I see Nier and Monster hunter and that's it
