There were a lot of surprises last night during the game awards. I’ve chosen my favorites to talk about today.
The game awards was decent this year. It had some horrible music being played in a bunch of trailers and some shitty ones live too, but I enjoyed it for the most part. I mainly watched it (along with Thursday night football) to see what new games would be announced. There’s not a lot that I’m interested in that was announced, but I am looking forward to a few games and I’m glad God of War beat Red Dead Redemption 2.
Dragon Age is at the very top of my list of games that was announced last night. I was not expecting anything from Bioware outside of Anthem and I’m super excited for it. Is this a direct sequel to Inquisition? I mean that was Solas’s voice we all heard right?
We got another new trailer for Anthem and I’m convinced that this game is going to be fantastic. I love everything that I’ve seen on it and I can’t wait to play it next year. I’ll be picking up two copies at launch and hopefully it’ll be my new go to multiplayer game.
Another new Far Cry game was announced and I really don’t care much for it. Far Cry hasn’t been good in a few years now. I… enjoyed Far Cry 5, but I think was a step down from Far Cry 4 and I’m not sure what to think of this new one yet.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 was announced with a brief gameplay trailer last night and I’m super excited for it. I was not expecting anything related to that game to be announced today since the last game released back in 2009 and it’s a Switch exclusive! That was the biggest surprise of them all. If you don’t know what Ultimate Alliance is think of Diablo, but replace everyone with Marvel characters :).
We got a nice cinematic trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 and the music in the background ruined what should have been a really nice trailer. Seriously… why did so many game trailers have shitty music last night?
Speaking of shitty music… we got another Rage trailer and I like that it’s open world, but I can go without that annoying song playing in the background again. I’m totally buying this game because it looks like a crazy good time.
Persona 5 was at the game awards show. I was hoping that it was an announcement of it making it’s way to the Switch, but it was just a Smash announcement… and seeing Joker in Smash made me want the game. Thanks Nintendo…
And that’s it. That’s all I’m interested in that was shown off last night. Watching how happy everyone was to receive their awards was awesome. A bunch of super talented people was there and it seemed like everyone was having a great time and that made me have a good time watching it. Gaming has come a long way hasn’t it?
What did you think of the game awards? What games are you looking forward to?
