Today's Game Awards were met with mixed reactions all across the world from gamers of all kinds. Naughty Dog's "The Last of Us Part II" won 5 awards including Game of The Year as well as Audio Design, Narrative, Best Action/Adventure, and "Innovation in Accessibility" whatever that is supposed to mean. Not including Laura Bailey's award also directly tying to the game. How could this game win so many awards yet be rated only 5.7 by users on Metacritic? Is the Game Awards losing integrity? I think it is. Here are some statements regarding The Last of Us Part II:
"I can't berieve you Geoff, I am dissapointed in your show" - Hideo Kojima
"Personally I agree with the pick for game of the year. Especially the best narrative, my favorite part of The Last of Us Part II was when revenge was bad. An eye for an eye will make you go blind right?" - Tim Sweeney
"Rubbish." - Peter Molyneux
"I play videogames too. I am like you." - Christopher Nolan
"It's not even that bad *hysterical laughing*" - Videogamedunkey
As you can see, the mixed reception is even apparent from the few select comments we were able to get for this piece. The only other 2 games to come remotely close in terms of awards were Among Us and Final Fantasy VII Remake. Final Fantasy however, did unfairly get a main character tossed into the garbage fire which is currently Super Smash Bros. It was the character Sephiroth, most notable for his appearances in Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Final Fantasy XXVIII, who is also being planned to be added in Final Fantasy XLVIII Parts I, II, III, IV, and V as well as it's following sequel Final Fantasy XLIX Online, planning to be developed from 2026 - the year Tesla stock begins to depreciate below $100 a share.
Here he is:
Rigged from the start
The Game Awards was rigged from the start, earlier this year deals were made with multiple people including Geoff Keighley, Videogamedunkey, and industry leader Tim Sweeney of Epic Games by Evan Wells, William Killian and worst of all.. Neil Druckmann of Naughty Dog to promote The Last of Us II either publicly or silently for the remainder of 2020 so that a secured game of the year award could be obtained for their garbage excuse of a videogame. Many complied but several people stood up to these offers including American hero Phil Spencer and Toby Turner of the famous youtube channel Tobuscus. Jackspedeyce, famous Irish Republican Army youtuber also declined this deal from Naughty Dog, but unlike other decliners his position at the front row broadcasting of the Game Awards was not forfeit. It is believed that NDAs might have been involved with the deal preventing people from talking about this deal. Only a select couple whistleblowers offered this deal who declined it were able to leak this information. We have respectfully decided to keep whistleblowers' Videogamedunkey and Snoop Dogg's identities anonymous so that nobody knows who leaked this information to us or other reporters and journalists.
That being said it is unfortunate that there had to be ulterior motives and espionauge poisoning this year's game awards and securing far too many awards to The Last of Us Part II. We hope next year there could be less corruption amongst the organization. Unless the corruption is coming from Invent4 entertainment. Then we endorse it.
In other bad news:
- Kinect Star Wars 2 was announced for the Xbox Series X, but they removed the dance mode making it entirely pointless.
- Unfunny women bicker and fight over the best Last of Us Part II character, ~10,931 instantly regret watching the Game Awards and realize that The Last of Us II is just going to win anyways, leading them to exit the stream.
- Genshin Impact was given recognition for being a video game and not a chinese children's casino in disguise stealing animations and mechanics from real video games.
- Destiny 2 continues to exist
