It’s that time again boys and girls: The GOTY award show on Game-Wisdom. And as always, we begin with my random set of awards.
As always, the rules are simple. The Game-Wisdom award show is completely rigged. Only games that I’ve played in the year are eligible for winning awards. DLC (not including expansions) cannot be up for a main award. If you would like to bribe me to get your game on the award list, please get all bribes in by May 5th, 2015.
For our Pre show, I have a number of random awards to give out.
The biggest shocker for me was how little I enjoyed my time in Horizon Zero Dawn. A perfect example of how repetitive the open-world AAA market has gotten, as the developers managed to make hunting machine animals boring.
This year saw a number of amazing Switch games released and revealed for 2018. Unfortunately, I still don’t have a switch which means no Super Mario Odyssey, Mario+ Rabbids, or Breath of the Wild.
Still not buying a Call of Duty game for $60; much less one with loot boxes for added fun.
Persona 5 joins the long list of games that I just burnt out on trying to finish. I made it to the last palace and lost the urge to keep playing.
This year has been an amazing one for video game aesthetics. From art with games like Cuphead and Persona 5, to music from games like Persona 5 and Cuphead; everybody has really stepped it up. I can’t even decide on the game that wowed me the most with how amazing it looked.
Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy had to be mentioned somewhere. While it’s certainly not going to get on my best of list, it deserved a mention here for just completely throwing my analytical process out the window.
It takes a lot for a visual novel game to keep me interested, and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker’s FMV style mixed with lovecraftian elements was intriguing. Unfortunately, the “whodunit” angle didn’t quite hook me enough like Her Story, but the game certainly deserved a nod here.
With that said it’s time to begin the countdown; starting with another “What the Hell Did I just play” game.
