Arthur T Knackerbracket has processed the following story:

Nintendo snagged the most nominations of any publisher with 15, followed by Sony (13), Microsoft (10, including Bethesda and Activision Blizzard's nods) and Epic Games (nine). There are 31 awards in total, including Best Adaptation. The nominees in that category this year are Castlevania: Nocturne, Gran Turismo, The Last of Us, The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Twisted Metal.

A bunch of deserving indies picked up nominations as well, including Cocoon, Dave the Diver, Dredge, Tchia, Viewfinder, Pizza Tower and Hello Kitty Island Adventure. Meanwhile, continuing a redemption arc after its disastrous debut three years ago, Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 and its Phantom Liberty expansion racked up four nominations in total.

    I feel like I could travel back in time maybe ten years or so, post this article, and it'd take a while before anybody went "wait.. are those new games?"

    Even tho a quite recent release Alan Wake II is probably the most interesting AAA-game this year. Even tho if one wants to be critical it's not really much of a game as most of it is more or less an interactive story with shorter action, or game, segments. The best part of it is really the story. Twin Peaks levels convoluted at times. Also they manged to create an entire music performance (we sing) into the game, and the song ain't bad. Quite catchy. While you could probably play it on its own I would say it sort of requires, if you want to follow in the story, that you played the first game, the DLC and a few of their other games such as CONTROL. Otherwise I imagine the story will be even more twisty and confusing then it already is. As most of the characters and story setup has already happened. Then it's just looping. []

    I know a lot of people really liked BG3. But I wasn't a fan.

    If I look at the smaller indie titles then Dave the Diver and Dredge (think fishing with/for Cthulhu) were both quite good. Dave was/is quite funny.

    I didn't find Castlevania Nocturne as good as the previous Castlevania animated series. Or perhaps it was just more of the same and nothing new or interesting was really added.
