Another Year, another The Game Awards is in the books. This year's addition was light on fans, hype, cringe and maybe for the better. But, there was also a surprisingly small amount of major 'OMG!!!' reveals as last year's reveal of the Xbox Series X may have proven too hard an act to follow. Nonetheless, we still got to see some pretty cool stuff and rounded up our favourites in a list below. And oh...SEPHIROTH!!!
Sephiroth brings dispair to smash
The show began with arguably the biggest reveal of the night with a cool trailer showing everyone's favourite lovable bastard from Final Fantasy 7 Sephiroth, will be joining Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. The series has evolved beyond being a celebration of Nintendo icons into a celebration of gaming as a whole, and none gets more iconic than this legendary villain.
perfect dark returns ...again!
If you grew up with an N64 and was also a James Bond fan, then you may have a soft spot for Rare's Goldeneye follow up, Perfect Dark. The game attained its own cult following which prompted Rare's new employers Microsoft looking to capitalize with a new game on the Xbox 360. Only problem? The game was poop, but Microsoft are no quitters, and they have given the series another chance, this time on the Xbox Series X.
This Winter Soilder Bunny Looks Dope!
The Game Awards is usually a stage for all games big or small, one of those small games definitely caught my eye. The Metroidvania Action game F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch comes to PS5 and PS4 spring 2021 and looking at this trailer, it is now on my must-play list.
ps5's returnal is looking even better
Sitting next to games like Demon Souls and Spiderman, it is no surprise that a game like Returnal got last in the shuffle. But, with this new trailer, this time-warping third-person shooter is forcing its way into the conversation. It is honestly looking better and better each time I see it.
crimson desert is next-gen on steriods
And our final game is one I don't know much but was wowed by its presentation. Crimson Desert is the new game from the makers of Black Desert Online and was one of the few games that truly looked Next-Gen. The combat didn't look too shabby either with the only potential red flag so far being the dismal framerate. Luckily, they have exactly one year more to go before its release.
And that was all really from this year's Game Awards. In a Covid filled year, there wasn't too much mega announcements or reveals (the wait continues for Elden Ring and Bayonetta 3), but we still got some hype stuff.
