Exact opposite for me. I dropped RDR2 after about 30 hours due to how repetitive it felt, how overly linear the missions were for such an open world game and how much of a shit show the controls were. IMO that game is hugely overrated but I accept that I'm in the minority with that opinion.
You are not.

Gameplay wins baby. GAMEPLAY WINS.

Because God of War is the better game.
Because GoW is a much better game probably
Damn fucking right it is, it's a game with real player agency, there's no ''Arthur! Push forward NOW!!!'' or ''Arthur WHAT ARE YOU DOING stop looting those bodies!!!'' or ''Arthur! Take cover behind THAT wagon cause I said so!''

Oh and the game doesn't fail all the fucking time because you didn't follow the script 100%.

I was really afraid RDR2 will clean up the awards. I am happy that GOW won as it's the better game by far taking much more risk then any reboot I have seen. RDR2 is just more of Rockstar. The game certainly met expectations of a rockstar game, but I don't see it as something as risky as GOW.

this is a great moment for this awards ceremony. God of War win legitimises TGA a lot more imho

it would’ve been very very easy to give it to RDR2 but it looks like some actual thought processing went into making a decision
I don't understand posts like this. Why are people treating RDR2 like it's an awful game?

And no, the Game Awards will not be legitimate until they actually appear to prioritize rewarding game developers over advertising them.

So happy for Cory and the SSM team. Well deserved. Excited to see where they take it with the next one. God of War 2 on next gen hardware is gonna be mind boggling

Talent wins again. Sony's stock continues to rise. They will be hard stopped with the ps5. God of war was robbed for that best music award though.

Also feel sorry for spiderman. What more do insomniac need to do!

Congrats to Santa Monica. It's a very good game and probably in my top 5.

MonHun got robbed though ;)

Genuinely happy for SSM. God of War was absolutely incredible. A masterpiece game. Has, so far, better than any game, combined a rich gameplay experience with a deeply engaging, cinematic narrative.

Can we leave the RDR2 hot takes out of this thread? It’s a great game in its own right
They’re extremely close going by the critics, RDR2 sits at 97 on metacritic and God of War at 94. I think most assumed that RDR2 would get the win here, so some hot takes aimed at either direction should be expected. I’m surprised it isn’t worse tbh.

Not suprised in the slightest.
Sony had one of their best year ever and RDR is overrated.

Legit was so surprised when GoW won because I was convinced RDR2 would win based on how the night was going. So so incredible. Game deserves all the love.

I have the feeling that people at Sony Santa Monica knew it since yesterday at least when they were so excited for the show on Twitter.

God of war plays like a dream, I am thrilled it was rewarded for the risks it took, and for when it released.. I felt for sure it would be forgotten by the end of the year (by critics)
