Alright, this conversation about Disco Elysium drills into what I was talking about with Control (as well as Disco Elysium) getting robbed in Best Story. Once again they got confused by their own categories. They removed Best World, but no one was on the same page with Brad about it being encompassed in Best Story. Instead it seems that they thought that worldbuilding just isn't a factor and the category is just entirely about plot (as dumb as that sounds).

@spikespeigel: He mentions some redacted documents, while the rest of the crew is going on about how the game is more about backstory and worldbuilding than story.

@raynorshine:This sounds like a line in a KING VADER video before the beat drops and everyone starts dance battling.

So do they have a "Best World" category this year? If not, I'm witnessing an absolute fucking mugging here. The worldbuilding of Control is good enough to fight for the win, and it got cut?

And MK11 and Judgment are in there? Alex is the one doing the mugging I guess.

Every single story written by the Yakuza team revolves around a conspiracy. It's all they write. Judgment is the best of those games, but we've seen this shit so many times before from the same devs.

And Brad even says that "story" is a broader concept. The fuck is happening here.

Funny cause your questions and concerns are well answered in the discussion that they recorded and posted here for our listening.

Funny cause I didn't hear that.

@spikespeigel:

I couldn't have cared less about the current events in Control, what was about to happen didn't interest me. The collectibles drove me from room to room. I'd even go as far as to say that the actual story of Control isn't even about Jesse or Dylan, it's about everything that happened before Jesse walked through the front door. I don't think the tie-in with Alan Wake got even mentioned.

@suits: I think the EGS release would have been right around the time they recorded their GOTY stuff last year, so it just missed the boat and is included this year.

Maaan, early access and the fact that GB now considers early access games for GOTY is really fucking Hades over. The best game Supergiant has made got just over a minute of time.

This was a good Unfinished EX, nice banter and David was great!

I'm also glad that Dan got in a couple more digs at Death Stranding.
