So what is your GOTY and GOTG so far?
For game of the year I am going to go with a darkhorse pick, Nier Automata. There is simply no other game that does what this game does. It's the kind of story that could only be experienced in a video game. Reminds me a bit of Asura's Wrath, perhaps not as crazy and over the top but the high points are every bit as insane, epic and intense. Youtuber Skillup called this game a masterpiece. Jim Sterling said that if history goes on to forget about this game then **** history. Mic drop.
For Game of this generation, I am going to go with Bloodborne. I do not particularly enjoy difficult games. I never played the Dark Souls games and I didn't really enjoy the brief amount of time I played of Demon Souls back on the PS3 but my God has bloodborne consumed my life! The atmosphere, art style, combat all of it. It's just so damn good! From the very first monster you face, you feel like an 80 pound weakling and when you finally beat him you realize that he wasn't a boss but just a regular mob lol! Every challenge you face feels impossible to overcome... until you do. Until you come back and beat these monsters that you once considered a God because you are now wrecking face and feel like a God yourself after leveling up only to have another Monster waiting around the corner to prove how wrong you are lol. I had an itch to play Nioh but decided to jump into Bloodborne since I had previously picked it up on sale and I am glad I did.
*Only one choice per person. That is what makes this excercise more difficult and interesting.
