Halo Infinite winning awards will burn some people.

Great wins for Ratchet. Excellent visuals and animation. And while I haven’t played Returnal yet, It seems the praise for its audio is universal. Great job by Housemarque to knock it out of the park with their very first AAA title.

Why will it burn anyone halo infinite is excellent in gameplay. Just lacking content.

I'm so happy to see The Ascent at least nominated for Action GotY. As much as I love Infinite and I do think it's the better game, I would have loved for The Ascent to win it.

Halo has already won more than enough awards and The Ascent was a MUCH better game the critic scores. It deserves some love.

Great to see returnal get some recognition, I see too much hate for its protagonists appearance and no saving functionality. and holy shit at ratchet and clank: rift apart! 4 awards in total and much deserved!
