Losing The Plot
Every genre of art seems to have its own sort of awards showcasing excellence within it’s given field. Music has The Grammys, the American Music Awards, and the Billboard Music Awards. Television has the Golden Globes and The Emmys. Hollywood and Film, in general, have a metric ton of awards with probably The Oscars, the Golden Globes, and The BAFTAs being the most well known. The biggest difference between those genres and video games, however, is that those awards garner prestige and as much as the DICE Awards are comparable to The Oscars or The Grammys for their respective genres. The thing is though, they’re not prestigious in the least in the eyes of gamers. Enter Geoff Keighley. Keighley began becoming a household name during his run on G4 and eventually becoming the host of the Spike Game Awards. Keighley, however, thought the awards should be as prestigious as The Oscars and would break off to develop his own awards show for video games, simply titled, The Game Awards. Now, in its 7th year, The Game Awards has become many things to many gamers, and that is in essence what we want to talk about for you today.On top of all of that, Josh has some thoughts on The Queen's Gambit and the first two Friday The 13th films. Austin regales us with anime talk when he discusses Attack On Titan and Demon Slayer. Both of the boys played more Ghost Of Tsushima and they discuss that as well as a couple of gundam games and Josh's first impressions with Yakuza: Like A Dragon.As always you can find us on social media for all things Culture Bop, Hunting Pixels, and the Culture Bop family of content.Culture Bop: Twitter - @Culture_Bop , Instagram - @culture_bop , Facebook - @TheCultureBopHunting Pixels: Twitter - @PixelsHunting , Instagram - @hunting_pixelscbJosh: Twitter - @TheBebopman182 , Instagram - @bebopman182Dylan: Twitter - @OMDizzy , Instagram - @omdizzyAustin: Twitter - @bigpappaplays , Instagram - @bigpappastephens_ Get bonus content on Patreon Hosted on Acast.
