For next year I could see

MLB 19
Days Gone
Concrete Genie
Dreams
Medievil
Nioh 2 ?
GOW standalone a la TLL

then DS, Ghost, and TLOU2 in 2020
That'd be a weak 2019 from first party in my opinion. I think either one or two of those big three have to be releasing in 2019.

Since Ghost was apparently only half done earlier this year, I could see that being 2020, but I think one of Last of Us 2 or Death Stranding must be releasing next year. There's also that unannounced exclusive Shu mentioned, which I'm guessing must be the Japan Studio game that one of the developers there has talked about at various points since 2016.

All of these games can't be coming 2020 if PS5 is also that year. Something has to be next year.

Did nobody make a thread for that? Must've been how I missed it.

Edit: ah it would have been when Era was down.
I don't see why these "guy from company is a presenter at VGAs" things deserve threads. They're presenting awards. It's not a confirmation of an announcement, just a confirmation that they're handing out an award to someone who probably doesn't have any public speaking skills.

Tbf tho it’s PHIL so his spiel presenting the award will probably generate a record ‘Phil Spencer Threads Per Sentence’ (PSTPS) count on here.

This might be isolated tweets but I've seen quite several people from the press saying that God of War is still their game of the year:

Honestly, for some reason, I just can not finish RDR2.

I don't know what it is. I mean, I like open world games. I loved Odyssey and want to go back to it soon.

You know what..........

I think I might like Odyssey more...........

I will never understand the world's fascination with that man. He has all the charisma of a 1980s-era Disney animatronic.

Nah, I don't think a standalone GoW expansion will happen, nor do I think the Big Three will all come out in 2020. And while Sony will probably publish Nioh 2, I wouldn't really count it as part of their lineup.

My guess is Death Stranding will come out in 2019 (with the release window announced at TGAs), with TLOU2 and GoT in 2020. I'm also guessing PSX 2019 will be the PS4's last hurrah before the PS5 is announced in Early 2020 and Sony will use it to fill out the PS4's 2020 lineup, so it won't just be MLB, TLOU2 and GoT.

Yeah, I think all the presenter announcements should've just been posted in a single thread, they're nowhere near important enough to deserve a separate thread for each one.

Also, I'm not a fan of executives presenting awards, especially if it's to their own first party games (like Phil apparently did with Ori in 2015). Shit's weird.

Where are you at? Because when the story really hits its stride it's topnotch throughout.

Man seeing comments like this always question what in RDR2 exactly struck a cord with me. Everyone was fawning over RDR1 for years, but it never stuck with me. But RDR2 definitely feels like what I imagined most people who viewed the first game so highly felt about it.

Personally my top games of this year are: DQ XI > Spider-Man > Monster Hunter World > RDR2 > God of War

God of War was definitely great, but in hindsight it felt a bit short and I felt the final act wasn't as strong as it could have been from a gameplay perspective.

If you've played up to the O'Driscoll main camp part in the intro of the game, you're qualified to talk about almost all encounters in the rest of the game.

I think RDR2 is one of those games that's better to watch than to play and I absolutely adored the first game.

I don't know how people have managed to jump to the conclusion that the God of War team's excitement for The Game Awards is due to them announcing new content...

I will never understand the world's fascination with that man. He has all the charisma of a 1980s-era Disney animatronic.
Might be the first time I've ever agreed with one of your posts lol.

I'm sure that he's made some really consumer friendly moves for Xbox and has turned the ship right around, but I really can't stand his style. The way he talks so slooowly and deliiiberately while reading from the teleprompter, the typically fake casual clothing to connect with your youthful audience - just wear a goddamn suit like a professional and stop pretending. He just strikes me as the typical corporate salesman type.

Jack Tretton had some elements of this too, although he had the ability to break out of it when necessary and at least to appear more natural. Shawn Layden just appears perpetually on edge, but that gives him an air of authenticity I guess.

Or maybe no one else cares and I'm being unfair.

With the exception of Jim Ryan, i'd expect every one of the recognizable Sony execs to at least be on stage during the PS5 reveal. They all have a place to come out and speak.
I'm not sure what Shawn would do/say on the PS5 stage tbh. That's really more about hardware/software developers.

I'm going with #TeamNoShawnOnPS5Stage

So, now that we know TLOU2 wont be there...

About the other 2 big ones from the trifecta... Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima.

Death Stranding is a lock. My question is: do you guys think we are going to finally see combat gameplay or is it going to be another cryptic 8 minutes mindfuck trailer?

And Ghost of Tsushima: do you guys think we will see it at all?

We're due for proper Death Stranding gameplay. I don't think another overly long bizarre trailer would go over super well after like what... 4 of them?

I don't think Tsushima will be there at all. If we see anything else first party (unlikely) I think it would be Days Gone or Dreams since they're the next big games on the docket.
