I've been voting every day for two weeks for my absolute favourite game this year, Disco Elysium. I really hope it wins something, preferably Best Narrative.

I stayed up to watch the whole thing in the hopes that there would be something to do with Elden Ring. It was, like staying up to watch Bethesda at E3, a mistake. I was pretty bored with the whole thing and now I have to finish an essay all sleep-deprived. I mean, they showed a trailer for FFVIIR, which was nice, but that's a game I'm getting anyway.

Still, it's nice to see Fromsoft get the recognition they deserve, even if Sekiro isn't really my thing and I probably won't get it. They should have won Game of the Year back when Bloodborne came out.

Disco Elysium won Best Narrative

Also won Best RPG, and Best Indie Game

AND the three other categories it was in: Best RPG, Best Independent Game, and Fresh Indie Game! I'm so happy, I definitely needed some good news. It's good to see such a deep and narrative-driven game winning awards!

I take it you would recommend the game?

Yes, very much. But be prepared: it's very focused on the narrative and has a novel's worth of reading. The game mechanics are almost entirely based on the dialogue system (which includes your inner dialogue).

That being said, it's bloody amazing and I can't recommend it enough. Beautiful, haunting, otherworldly. Well-written. I can't praise it enough.
