I stopped listening to these after day two. Unfortunately that's due to Abby. I've always liked her on the videos I've watched but she just shouted over the top of everyone.
Ben was new to the GOTYs and was great and I've always felt that, in previous years, everyone has made their arguments passionately but politely but realised when to let stuff go when the room was against them. There's been exceptions of course but in general it's been pretty respectful. Abby just didn't seem to get it and thought that shouting over the top of people was the way to argue her case.
The final straw for me was when Alex tried to politely interject in the best music category at one point and she said "Let me finish!"
I'll still happily watch the GBEast content but, from the amount of times she's come up negatively in this discussion, I don't think she did herself any favours here.
