Playing Super Mario Maker at the moment, really loving it but it's definitely a game that makes me stop and think long and hard, more so than any other game. Making good levels is hard, who would have thought?
Haha, I 100% agree - this is one of the specific examples I was thinking of! I think they actually started hinting that it will be lately after the changes that were made to MGSV after it came out, but ever since the first "GB Makes Mario" feature I've thought it would be.qaiz said:Yup, I can already tell that Mario Maker will be Giant Bomb's GOTY which is crazy in a year that MGSV released since the guys there love that franchise
I definitely don't know what kind of angle Brad is going to come at the goty stuff from. I felt like he was on the MGSV train as hard as anyone, but he is willing and able to argue something personal to him all the way into the top 10. I really look forward to Austin's input for the first time this year though, the same as I did during their E3 coverage.qaiz said:the Giant Bomb crew
Has there been any negative coverage of The Witcher 3 from people playing for longer? I don't really follow these things much but the only negatives I've really seen were complaints that pre-ordering the expansion pass may have resulted in a slightly worse deal when they also offered a good deal on the first expansion (though it remains to be seen if that pans out). I've found my time with it to be fairly consistently enjoyable, I've played for a fair while but then I'm not necessarily miles into the story (which tends to be secondary with the way I play).ilmaestro said:Bloodborne will definitely win some awards too, the new DLC has been nicely timed to remind people about that game, but I think it's kind of crazy for people to give GOTY to The Witcher 3 as I didn't see any coverage of that game that stayed positive all the way though, compared to the hype when people had only played a few hours of it.
But... Gwent.ilmaestro said:Not negative per se, more just that the back third of the game maybe isn't as tight as it could be. They also did a fair bit of work patching that game to get it into the state some people wanted it, which I'm still not sure how to assess as far as how it makes me think about GOTY awards.
