When did the dark ages of gaming begin?

Everything since 2005 has been shit, TP & Galaxy are passable at best but way below the standards of what came before
Hogwarts legacy goty????
It's a two game race this year
Realistically speaking it's between Starfield, Tears of the kingdom and spiderman 2
Starfield isn't even guaranteed to be out this year
Harry Potter will win by a landslide unless Zelda is really good, it's far bigger than Elden Ring was
harry potter is already forgotten after a few months despite the sales and doesn't have the same critical reception, thinking it has even a shot at beating zelda is delusional
If it wasn't for Skyrim, Skyward Sword would have won Game of the Year that year that's the only reason it lost. There's no way that a sequel to BOTW loses
Baldurs Gate 3 is going to win GOTY normal gays
>Baldurs Gate 3 is going to win GOTY
yeah, cope and seethe about it chud
>SS & MM are the only Zelda games that didn’t win
Were they really that bad?
Perfect Dark was considered the best N64 game that year, but it also had to compete with Deus Ex
short answer is yes
MM is still ultra contrarian, and always has been
its just that its a galvanizing bit of contrarianism because people who play zelda really want to believe they aren't playing a game for grade schoolers
Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and even Breath of the Wild all felt like a grand scale adventure. Majora's Mask and Skyward Sword lacked that.
Past 2008 is the definitive decline but 2012 is when the darl ages began
There is no "official game of the year award" you retard. That does not exist. There's just hundreds of individual awards from various game magazines and organizations.
Most awards is basically just the official winner
>movie games and open world
donkey kong country was not that great, it was merely very good
chrono cross was not even good
halo2 is consoleshooter goyslop, but I at least understand why it was included
half the games after skyrim are incoherent storytime trash
I dont think there's anything wrong with gaming, but there's definitely something wrong with its journalism and players
things that are not games are called games
>Shitting on Chrono Cross and DKC
Fallout 3 should be categorized RPG not open world
It's micro-brained to care about a popularity contest (X of the Year). Play what you like and ignore or troll everything else.
Doom1 came out in1993 and is still the most influential game ever made
the list says 'samurai shodown'
I don’t agree with a single pick here.
I'm okay with 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 200, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006 & 2008
2009-2010 peak gaming history. pure kino
