    @omgfather: True, but this way there's a chance that Fallout 76 will end up winning Hottest Mess two years in a row. A GB first!

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic GOTY Needs to Move to January. on the General Discussion board

    A lot of people have made the point about how it provides a lot of good content in December, but I'll add that it also feels like a more accurate weighting for "Game of the Year." New games automatic...

    The problem is that not all people are going to enjoy this game, people like Jeff in particular. The issues they complained about on the Beastcast may be insignificant for you, but for them they were ...

    @frodobaggins: Definitely try out Sushi Go! (exclamation point is part of the game's title) It's small, easy to learn, lots of fun, and costs about 8 dollars (I think that's like 5 quid?). Forbidden D...

    I think this year will be even more hotly contested than last year, just because there's no one game that everyone (or almost everyone) played and loved through the whole year. Abby and Jeff seemed p...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic The value of modern videogames. on the General Discussion board

    I do think modern games are less valuable than older ones, but I don't think that's necessarily due to online stores; old Neo-Geo games, for instance, are probably valuable collector's items, but you...

    @strikealight: If you're looking for a good-bad movie, I'd still say steer clear. The moments I mentioned could fall into that category, but those are pretty much the only ones that would qualify, and...

    A Star is Born--1/5 starsI genuinely cannot understand how this movie has received the acclaim it has. Other than the admittedly-good acting and some good songs, I would describe everything about this...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic The vitriol surrounding Fallout 76 is very puzzling to me. on the Fallout 76 board

    As a Fallout fan who has no intention of ever playing this game, my reasons are mostly that it doesn't look in any way like a Fallout game; it looks more like No Man's Sky with a Fallout skin.Fallout ...

    Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us both have pretty amazing arcs. Both change in realistic and heartbreaking ways, and in every moment of the game they act in ways that completely make sense, even if y...

  • acharlie1377 posted a message in the forum topic Need some suggestions for a new Switch game or 2. on the Nintendo Switch board

    I'd recommend Steamworld Heist, as I feel it's highly underrated; it's basically a 2D XCOM, set in the same universe as the Steamworld Dig games. Probably my favorite tactics game on Switch, and it h...
