Do we think that if Switch hardware numbers look like they will meet the FY forecast that Animal Crossing will be delayed? Or are we expecting it to be delayed anyway?
The FY forecast is already a near certainty and will likely be easily surpassed. Don’t think that would affect their release date.

Also AC isn’t frontloaded it won’t stop moving HW within a couple of weeks of launch.

They are 100% surpassing their FY forecast, and quite easily too.

But Animal Crossing isn't getting delayed regardless. When was the last time Nintendo delayed a game that had a firm release date? IIRC it's been a very, very long time.

Did we get only 1 announcement each year?
If that's the case I will lower my hype by quite a bit.
Nope

Game Awards 2014- BotW gameplay revealed, Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker 2 and Codename Steam shown
Game Awards 2016- BotW trailer, BotW gameplay
Game Awards 2017- Bayonetta 1+2 for Switch, Bayonetta 3 for Switch, BotW dlc shadow drop
Game Awards 2018- Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 and Joker for Smash

My hype for expecting 2-3 announcements is justified by all the Game Awards since it started. 2015 is an exception with Iwata passing. 2016 was Nintendo’s lowest point. They had Switch coming.

I predict Metroid 5 as the brand new Nintendo game announcement of TGA (they had one at both 2017 and 2018), if I go wild and dream about it being the game Retro was working on before MP4, then I also predict Retro Studios lol

I kinda feel the the Video Game Awards are always painfully overhyped when it comes to announcements, in that there's this expectation for BIG NINTENDO/SONY/MICROSOFT GAMES and in reality a vast majority of the announcements end up being indie titles, DLC, and other curveballs. Each and every one welcome, but yeah.

I think odds are good on Nintendo dropping something, but I'm expecting a full Bayonetta 3 trailer more than anything. And then a Jan/Feb/March Direct outlining the remainder of 2020.

That would be great!
Then they have to do it the Bayonetta way and announce the old trilogy among it.
PLEASE Nintendo

Okay i need someone in the know about the TGAs tell me if it's worth staying up past 1.30 am (when it airs in mainland europe) or not, under consideration of the following facts:

- Full work day the day after the event
- Married with children
- 35+ years *old*
- regularly falls asleep while playing on evenings

I'm not really particularly in the know, but I would give a resounding "It's not worth it!" Even if there are E3-tier announcements, the show as a whole tends to be paced more like an awards show. You ever try to watch the American Oscars awards or Grammys? They tend to put people to sleep, and that's before it's 2 in the morning. Get your sleep, man.

Not worth it because it's not 20 minutes of announcements like in a Direct, it's a long show. Enjoy your sleep and then enjoy the announcements next morning.

Europe too. Not worth it. I don't work the day after, I'll probably have fun, but even then I know I'll be reaaaally tired the day after. I'll watch it, but even in my situation it's barely worth it.
In 2017 I had a lot a lot of fun watching it because Nintendo won so many Awards and there was a lot great reveals, not only from Nintendo. (Also memes. "Fuck the Oscar" and Reggie going "Geoff... You really think I came all the way out here just for this shit ? Bring the Bayo 3 trailer !")

But last year I got bored and stopped watching it midway, and I missed Joker's reveal. I was bit disappointed to have missed it live (waking up, going to youtube having in mind "let's see that glorious Metroid Prime Trilogy trailer" and instead seeing "Joker in Smash reveal trailer" was really fun tho lol), but I don't regret going to sleep instead given that last year I worked the day after in the afternoon.
So yeah, honestly have a good night of sleep instead ! It's a very long show, you won't go to bed until 4am if you watch it.

Hmm. Would KOS-MOS be a good reveal for a Smash character at the Game Awards? I think kind of. I could see it going either way. She’s not a big character and not known by many since she was in the Xenosaga games and showed up in XC2.

It's just game announcements. Not worth it in my opinion, especially with work on the next day.

I was against the ide of Botw2 in TGA but I
Already preparing myself to be disappointed since I'm hoping for a 2.5D Metroid "totally new or remake" and\or Prime Trilogy Switch announcements :(
New 2D Metroid or Super Metroid could be true but I don't know if we gonna see it in TGA. On the other hand Botw2 could happen in the end, I was skeptical but I see that BotW got a lot of exposure in TGA.

As someone who enjoys big video game commercials:

Go to bed, enjoy a night's uninterrupted sleep, and then watch the trailer highlights when you get up. You get all the benefit and none of the sleep deprivation.

Contents about BotW2, Bayonetta 3 or MP4 would be amazing but all of theses games are already known.

I wish they can reveal a title no one is expecting, like Odyssey 2 or F-Zero Switch.

The reason I never predict a new first party Nintendo game is because Nintendo has never revealed a new first party game at the Game Awards. It would be very cool and surprising if they did announce one.

I'll be watching Thursday night football instead of TGAs. It's pretty damn cringey in general so I don't feel like I'll be missing much.

It's nice to see the Switch logo and then wonder what's about to be announced but I don't really think it's worth staying up late and sitting through the entire slog to see those few surprises. I'll just find the relevant threads on Era later.

That's why I can't be completely hyped by the Game Awards. Or at least not enough to stay awake at night. E3 is really something else.
