    When kratos said
    "So what am I supposed to be? Some kind of- god of war or something?" Really made me cheer outloud.

      well the awards were based on character and main plot. those categories clearly beat elden ring, but for overall game? elden ring slams ragnorak into the ground. it has more replayability, more gameplay features, online multiplayer and isn't platform exclusive. (btw elden ring won goty anyway nerd)

    Charlie, it is mainly the toxic parts of the genshin community, or really any game community that will attack you for not voting their game. If you like a certain mobile game and want to vote for it, more power to you. Most of the genshin reddit seems pretty chill with whoever you are voting for.

    Elden ring had a bigger impact on gaming and me personally then GoW will ever have. The first time entering the map and discovering just how big the game is without a walk through was the most memorable experience in my life. Discovering and learning a bosses movesets or trying out interesting and unique weapons was just amazing. You can have your opinions but nitpicking everything about a game to prove your point just infuriates.

    • Zach Houston
      Zach Houston Month ago

      Discovering Siofra River was one of the biggest jaw-dropping moments in gaming for me. And then the game went and sends you to Caelid when opening that chest in the ruins and you're like "holy shit this is a big map" and then you beat Godrick and go to Liurnia and say the same thing and continue to do so until Mountaintop of the Giants

    • Jake Palmer
      Jake Palmer Month ago

      Elden Ring really just repopularized what Dark Souls 3 already did I think, I loved the game but I think God of War Ragnarok has a lot more to offer in terms of uniqueness. Elden ring is a fantastic culmination of the souls games and blood borne with a more ambitious map and a shit ton of great bosses, but it really is just bigger. Ragnarok tells a story in a way I've never seen a game tell a story before, it managed to tell a story about family in redemption while you git beat the shit out of by a dude with a lightning hammer and struck a balance no other game has pulled off yet. Whats better is up to opinion but impact on gaming would have ti go to GoW for me

    • Makxspeed

      @Chris Johnson elden ring is overall a masterpiece but the bosses were just a major step down after 3 consecutive games with many phenomenal bosses that didnt need the most insane visuals to be memorable

    Personally when it came to like best game for newcomers I went to the Quarry because you don't need to really understand game mechanics other than react to things and look at your options and you play the game there is no technically bad choice since it's a choice base game I feel like those who vote last of us are already Last of Us fans who get another person who hasn't played last of us to play that game and God of War is literally a sequel so I don't know why it's in that category cuz I watch berleezy and he proves what I think about Ragnarok and that is simply you will get lost on references if you did not play the game completely

  • MiniMoonMan
    MiniMoonMan Month ago +11

    Elden ring and GOW are 2 different games and its hard to compare the 2 so its more of who has perfected their game more but in reality its not its who's game type is more popular which elden ring crushes god of war at. Its an open world with a master piece design, an insane amount of bosses and little easter eggs, secret places to go to and multiple endings too. The boss ost's are know to be unique and amazing. Plus you can spend alot of time playing it and still have a ton of stuff to do in it which is what you want the most from a game etc......... Its like everything you want in a game is there. GOW is an amazing game too except its just a strict story and certain stuff you have to do to finish the story and thats it. Everything else is god tier too, but elden ring's game style is just miles above.

      @Gray Stark I can guarantee I am better at the game than you are. no really. because your comment somehow suggests that elden ring is a challenge. elden ring is an infantilely easy game. I have beaten ds1, ds3, bb, and er. actually, if you're on ps4 drop your gt and I'll pvp you.
      the game is mid. I'm sure your first fromsoft experience left you feeling magical but I assure you its all copy and pasted from previous experiences.

    God of war pretty easily should win I’d say it’s 70-30 split with elden ring and I doubt there’s anything else worth mentioning right now Lolol. I mean if dying light 2 had come out like that e3 demo from like 3 years ago maybe there could have been some competition but as per usual the video game is a way overhyped B- than too much was promised and mostly cut out of the final version. Ragnarok didn’t do that clearly. They set a standard and exceeded it which is probably why for most all open world games are the same thing…that said elden ring was great but personally I enjoyed 30 hours of ragnarok more than 160 hours of elden ring and that has to mean props for god of war and also it’s unreal the polish that Sony games get without a million delays and bugs. Look at dying light 2 and cyberpunk for examples of what everyone else was doing while god of war crushing it.

    • Dave Milligan
      Dave Milligan Month ago

      @Obi the BEEF tbh man, I really don't give a shit about any awards & I don't understand why anyone really does. I don't understand awards for any kind of art, and games are now very much a form of art. Art is subjective & that means the only opinion that matters is yours/mine/any individual's. Any comments I've made are based on my understanding of how awards work. Even from that perspective, I don't think either of those games should have gotten any recognition whatsoever. They're both total duds in my opinion - I've said my pieve about Sonic, as for Scorn, I think it's outright plaigerism - that's not 'influenced by' Giger's work - that's bits of Giger's work straight up copied & re-jigged. I'm a huge Giger fan, I sell art, have worked with a lot of his stuff & been a lifelong fan. I'm appalled at how they stole his creations & made a lot of money off the back of it - the stolen art is the only reason that game got the attention it did. I'm surprised his estate didn't sue. They bloody well should have.

      @David Jr well, the way it usually goes is a soundtrack to a game that's generally loved across the board. It's a very divisive title.

    • David Jr
      David Jr Month ago

      @Dave Milligan In my opinion, the game doesn’t need to be that great to even be nominated for the best audio designs / soundtrack. Sonic Frontiers has offered one of the best soundtracks in gaming history. Gameplay is pretty basic for open world yes, but soundtrack really made up for it’s solid 5 islands open world and pretty fun combat system. I think it is a crime for Game Awards to not even nominate Sonic Frontiers for that section.

    • Dave Milligan
      Dave Milligan Month ago

      @Greyson Crowe it's a very divisive title. It's a 4/10 for me & as I said before, it's all subjective. If you love it, great - my opinion isn't more valid than yours. I sell art for a living (in many forms) and have for almost 30 years (I started when I was 13) and I think video games are art - if films are, then games are too. So art is subjective & that means no one can really be right or wrong - as I explained before I was absolutely AMAZED people liked this as all I saw was people trashing it as I did it - but as we all know, social media is designed to be an echo chamber, thus we're heavily fed content in line with our own views.

    Again, I'm fine with you giving awards to God of war, but you're not even acknowledging Eldon Ring. You're not going to acknowledge the score of the soundtrack to Elden Ring? They're literally whole Clip-Share channels dedicated to analyzing the composure and score to the olden ring soundtrack. It's a whole community by itself. Geez man

      @The Noob Network Yea i dont disagree I wasn't disappointed by the time of god of war but I beat elden ring with ranni ending and some other endings complete for a first play through in about 50 hours but now have over 100 from new game + and other things

    • Yulfine
      Yulfine Month ago +1

      @The Noob Network it's also a much deeper narrative that isn't spoon fed to you a lot of its narrative comes from other npcs and tidbits in writing and dialogue and exploration over gow. Elden ring has still kept me entertained more than the 40 or so hours gow has given me. It's not the same at all and the narrative and lore that elden ring and dark souls and bloodborne have had has been a sweep in narrative. It gives something rather than just using real time cinematics to tell the story.

    • The Noob Network

      @squishy sausage I don't think play time has ever been a category. God of wars length to me is perfect and tons to do. Elden takes long mainly from the difficulty to me.

    • squishy sausage
      squishy sausage Month ago +1

      ragnarok is not open world like elden ring is elden ring is the perfect open world game with so much more play time. the only reason Ragnarok wins in so many other categories is because there was no categories about play time and things like that it was just which game had better sound or art or story line. and especially for story line ragnarok is literally a story game. Ive played both ragnarok and elden ring and personally elden ring is the better game I have 100s of hours on it but ragnarok is also a very great game

No Man's Sky had it's time, and they missed the mark, not sayin' it wasn't an amazing game way ahead of it's time, but it shouldn't even be in the runnings, regardless of how supportive it's community is.

    I'm sorry, but I feel Charlie didn't really even listen to most of the elden ring ost's, God of War ragnarok had a great soundtrack, dont get me wrong, and although it was hard, Elden just brings it with the music, it's just more memorable and impacting, the depth of the notes, the choir, it just barley beats ragnarok for me, but I'm still understanding that he or others chose ragnarok, but cmon, Maliketh ost, Godfrey ost, GODSKIN OST, I can go on, but like, cmon you can't tell me the boss ost's aren't super memorable, haha, but eh it's all in fun, it's just my opinion 😅

    When it comes to best adaption, my vote went to Arcane.
    I loved both Arcane and Cyberpunk but ultimately Arcane did more "adapting" then Cyberpunk. Sure Cyberpunk's world was practically one to one with the game and the theme was same but the story and characters were completely original. Which isn't surprising since the player character can be literally anyone who does whatever they want.
    Arcane on the other hand, not only got the world down but also worked with existed characters, fleshed them out well, and had a compelling story.

    A Plague Tale Requiem is being really overlooked due to being released so close to Ragnarok (similar to Forbidden West and Elden Ring). I’ve completed 100% all 4 of them and a lot of awards going to Ragnarok I feel Requiem should seriously be in contention for…. Especially best Sound Design/OST. Like you said it’s hard to go against Christopher Judge (esp as a Stargate fan)…but Amicia from Requiem hands down is the next best for me. I almost wish it came out a different year because I feel like it really deserved many of these awards. If it was marketed a lot more so as many people played it as Ragnarok I think there would be a ton of serious debate in regards to its contention for the awards.
    Has anyone else played it through fully and feel similar to me?

    God of War: Ragnarok has accessibility features outside of NPCs telling you what to do within one minute of observing that a puzzle exists. For example, "High Contrast Mode" assists people with photosensitivity and low-vision, it has great subtitling, and an assist mode for seeing navigation points easier, like the fixtures you need to fling yourself with by using the blades of chaos. Accessibility isn't just for people who don't solve a puzzle in three minutes.

    In GoW it's for sure Raeb's Lament, it's fucking perfect for every single place it was used in. A masterpiece of a song.
    But Hellsingers Dissolution is on another level entirely, not the best song in gaming this year, the best song I've heard this entire year period. Deserves more praise than this event can give it.

    Making the best possible game isn't about Game Direction, Narrative, Art Direction, Music, or Audio Design.
