I really like the idea of these games and I'll play any number of them. Grinding for loot can be relaxing.

But I absolutely hate how there are only two aesthetics for ARPGs. It's like 80% ridiculously grimdark, and 20% cartoony like Torchlight. Give me something in-between.

I do miss categories like Please Stop and Hottest Mess. If the staff decided they didn't want to talk about such negative stuff, that's fine by me.

I think having staff make videos of whatever silly, fun, or specific stuff they wanted to mention is a good compromise. The only real criticism I have with that is those videos are very short, and I'm not a fan of single person videos in general. I think most of these could've been improved by having just one other person who played the games talked about. Best Boss Fights is a great idea for a category! Get two people who played Sekiro to briefly talk about it--each one could have different favorites, but also a couple of the same experiences to talk about.

I do hope they keep the staff categories for next year.

This is the first-ever strand game of the year list.

Jeff's response is perfectly reasonable and takes into account the well-being of his staff.

If you're so obsessed with hearing people have a knock-down, drag-out fight, just wait till the final ranked list is made. Or go watch some reality television. "These grown-ass adults aren't arguing vehemently enough about video games for my entertainment," is a weird fucking thing to complain about.

I introduced my roommate to Giant Bomb in a big way this year (more than just a Quick Look or two I'd shown her before), and Abby's Resident Evil 2 playthrough was the first full game playthrough we watched together! She's a fan of Giant Bomb, but ESPECIALLY a fan of Abby's humor and reactions during games!

Keep it real, AbbyFromBrooklyn!

Man, looking at this in 2019. It is absolutely wild to think that this game came out a year before the new trilogy was announced.

Great conversation on plastic/real trees! I'd love to hear their very informed takes on plastic straws!

I was waiting for The Witcher to show up on Netflix and ended up watching this and I'm so fucking happy I watched this. Incredible in so many ways.

@xbob42: Someone who doesn't tip their waiter is not making a choice to refrain from engaging with the system. They have already chosen to eat at that restaurant. They have chosen to engage with the system by doing business at an establishment in which workers rely on tips. They're just pretending to "not engage with the system" at the one point where that engagement can make the biggest impact. If you don't want to engage with the system, don't eat at restaurants like that.

It is not your responsibility, or my responsibility, or anyone's individual responsibility (other than an employer) to pay for a waiter's wage. But we do benefit from that system when we go out to eat, so the least we can do is tip the waiter. After that, we can choose to elect people who are interested in making sure all workers receive a living wage.
