What kinda of jump do you had between ac1 and 2? The combat was the same shitty counter based stuff for noobs (i returned the game to gamestop when i realized that, one full game with that shitty combat was enough) and unchy 2 still had the same floaty shitty gunplay, it's unchy4 that made a huge jump in gunplay and movements.It's going to be like it was in 2018 when it split awards with RDR2. VGAs could go either way. They gave it to Sekiro over Death Stranding after giving kojima best director which was bizarre. So they must love fromsoft, but they also gave it to GOW so who knows. It will be close either way.
I personally think that the gameplay is going to feel incredibly stale and samey. The few videos they have shown so far dont really feature any brand new mechanics. No Uncharted 1 to Uncharted 2 or AC1 to AC2 leap. It's going to be more of the same, and those games typically dont win too many GOTY awards. See how no one is even talking about HFW this year despite the first finishing runner up to BOTW. GOW is going to have some epic setpieces and boss fights as shown in the trailer, but the sameyness will hurt it in GOTY voting even if it scores really high.
Or It might be treated like GOW2. An epic masterpiece that was held back by the PS2 and overshadowed by Mass Effect, Bioshock, Uncharted and Halo 3 despite some incredible setpieces, boss fights and probably the best campaign of the lot. I think Elden Rings also feels too samey but clearly the critics didnt think so. Probably impressed by the new open world design and ignored the samey combat.
You're almost becoming a parody at this point with your hate for singleplayer gamesRagnarok will be the last of it's kind. Irrelevant by 2024. A footnote on gaming history and nothing more.
Gaming media has to sell a product though because they're of no use if they don't.
Who's even talking about platform wars?? Elden Ring is enjoyed by all. You're the one who wants to blame all non-sonycentric viewpoints on stupid platform loyalty, which sounds like cope on your part too.Why do i feel like its the opposite
I feel like the people hoping GOWR doesn’t get the “GOTY” are the people who don’t have access to it while most GOWR players probably played and enjoyed Elden Ring and wouldn’t mind either one winning?
And even if one or the other wins the Keighlys they will split down the middle for other publications so the real winners are the people who get to play both.
And as for platform wars, sony own GoW and partly own Fromsoft and have stake in kadokawa so it’s dumb if tahts what you’re basing your hopes and dreams on. Both Horizon and God of War are gonna win a ton of awards this year, wouldn’t be surprised if GT7 and TLOU get some for accessbility and features also, the former will take home best racing/sports game

Elden Ring is just that good.
after that trailer? my hype is through the roof, Santa Monica doesn't miss.I don't get the need from some people for this to win Goty, having those types of expectations is never good.

At least do better than this. Saying that the game will be irrelevant by 2024 is ridiculous, even if trolling.
If you were being serious, than I worry about your mental health
Both are great games but we have to remember that Elden Ring is much more flawed.It may well end up GOTY as many people loved the first game, but to suggest this after a trailer with very little gameplay, come on now.
All i know Eldern Ring hooked me like not many games have in recent years, and as an experience felt above anyhting else i have played in recent years too.
Basing on the standards of the last GOW the next should be much more polished than Elden Ring with its performance issues, clunkier physics and last gen graphics.Unless you have played GOWR, thats a silly thing to say. Besides if Edern Ring is that flawed, it just shows how powerful it is as a game to overshadow that and be probable GOTY.
First of all, plenty of great trailers ended up with rank average games.
However I'm sure SSM will release of old game.
On top of that as GOW R is releasing the sake date as what Forza Horizon 5 did (9th Nov) it won't be in the time frame for a Game Awards GOTY nomination.
There's no way Geoff would exclude a MS game because it released on the 9th November but allow a Sony game.
That would come across as, well, biased.
