"Emergency Contingency Plan for Content" such an incredible, uniquely 21st century entertainment industry phrase.

@therealturk:

Writer 2: How do we convey that this guy is a lifer?

Writer 1: I know! He's always wearing his dog tags hanging out of his shirt! That's how you know he's serious about the military!

Writer 2: This is in movies, so I know it's true!

Characters like James Vega are one of my huge pet peeves. Nobody who is THAT into being a soldier would be caught dead with their dog tags hanging out of their shirt like that. It's unprofessional.

That dude is one war crime away from starting his own vetbro coffee company.

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!
