Like I mean super bad.
Did anything meaningful even come out this year? Feel like everyone was just phoning home the usual shovelware.

This year the only games I Purchased were Pokemon Sword & Shield. I don't even think I want anything else until Mega Man Zero collection in January.
And even then I am not a huge fan of re-buying games I already have.

I disagree strongly, I loved a lot of the games that came out this year.

REmake 2
DMC5
Metro Exodus
Fallen Order
Sinking City
Control
Wreckfest
NFS Heat
MHW Iceborne
Death Stranding
Atelier Ryza
Outer Wilds
Outer Worlds
Greedfall
Outward

The list goes on and on and on.
It's been a great year for gaming.

Kingdom Hearts 3, Fire Emblem: 3 Houses, Bloodstained, MUA3, SRT3, Vesperia, Cross Rays and those are only the first ones that come to mind, that I am certain released this year.

I am assuming the LA remake is also really good, just because they only really made the graphics and music nicer and seem to have left the actual gameplay intact as it was.

Game needs to die in a fire. It is nothing like Final Fantasy.
The huge shilling campaign that came with the release annoyed me for weeks.

No, they just padded it out with more filler story content. Now it takes even longer to get to the fun end-game stuff.

Shadowbringers is incredible, and it's the highest rated game of the year and it's a damn crime it's not a contender for GotY.

I know you're a master of obscure games, but I'm pretty sure that I've long outgrown my favorite games from that era (which would be Mega Man & Final Fantasy).
I am more into games that I can spend hundreds of hours on now.

Did anything meaningful even come out this year? Feel like everyone was just phoning home the usual shovelware.

This year the only games I Purchased were Pokemon Sword & Shield. I don't even think I want anything else until Mega Man Zero collection in January.
And even then I am not a huge fan of re-buying games I already have.


Why do you think? Everyone and their mother are too busy making games for the PS5 and the Xbox Two.

Nobody was going to waste their time releasing games this late in this generation.
