Bootlick Standing got 10 award nominations, while much better games like Fire Emblem, Astral Chain, Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Link’s Awakening get hardly none. The western video game media is a joke. Any game that has a big eastern influence in it, will get overlooked. Fire Emblem Three Houses should’ve been the front runner for game of the year, but oh no. The Kojima bootlickers have to give Bootlick Stranding nominations it didn’t deserve. Best game? What a joke. Take Kojima’s name off that game and it would be at a 62 on Metacritic. Geoff Keighley, you and your award show are a joke.
It wasn’t just Death Stranding. Control, another game that should not have been nominated. A bizarre story, but the gameplay is so mediocre and uninspired. But, because the western video game media wants video games to be interactive movies, it gets tons of nominations. Do not trust these award shows. They are all a joke. That includes the Oscars, the Grammy’s and the Emmys. They aren’t good measures by what is good art and what isn’t.
I am glad there has been huge blow-back from video gamers who smell a rat. Gee, Kojima is on the board of the VGAs. Geoff Keighley and him are close buddies. Don’t expect Smash to win GOTY. Don’t count on it. Just sit Kojima up there and have Keighley lick his boots and the video game media to do the same. This is a disgrace and this horrible game doesn’t deserve the nominations it got. A lot better games got snubbed for captain narcissist to get his nominations.
I don’t need to watch the VGAs to see the great new games that will be there. Just keep your eye on You Tube and pages You Tubers like OJX, OBE1 and RGT 85. What little respect I had for the VGAs went out the door when they gave Bootlicker Stranding ten nominations. Do not watch this joke of a show. I will put reviews below showing critics bootlicking Kojima. No game can be boring, convoluted, a mess and tedious and be called a good game. Never trust the VGA or the video game media again.
