Not exactly. They had a conversation about how to handle long lived games that can drastically change over time, such as Sea of Thieves and Destiny 2. The ultimate decision was that they would just allow any game to be nominated, but as ever it would fall on that game's champion to justify the choice on the GOTY show.

 

Titanfall 2 would be unlikely to get very far as the obvious argument would be that it came out years ago and remains the same game it was at the time. However if Titanfall 2 had some kind of massive expansion this year with a new campaign or something, there would be grounds to argue its place in the list.

 

I don't think it's ever been meant to taken seriously. First exhibit: Titanfall 2. :D


 I got a bit annoyed at their e3 coverage thing but after watching Mat throw up in a bucket during the milk challenge I’ve bought into the tcgs vibe more (and upped my sub)

I think it's a bit of a stretch to say that Sea of Thieves has changed drastically (not that you necessarily were), but that explanation does make sense. Not that it matters anyway because it has zero chance of making it past the first round, regardless of what it goes up against :D

What happened with Titanfall 2 was amazing, still makes me smile when thinking about it!

Honestly like the guys I’m grateful for more time to get through some games myself. These things are always more enjoyable to listen to if you’ve a bit more skin in the game. 
 

Also I think it will have an interesting effect on a certain recently-released game with a dodgy second half of a campaign.

The MHG GOTY podcast is out.

Was you busy Christmas Day and missed our #goty special? Well you can listen now as podcasts aren't live.

 

Did #TetrisEffectConnected from @enhance_exp make it again? Or did #MetroidDread take top spot? Maybe it was #ShovelKnightPocketDungeon or a surprise with @RailRouteGame

Haha same. Although Backpage has done a great job filling the time, they managed to have quite a few surprises in there too. 
 

I do feel a bit like I know what the TCGS guys will be saying in theirs as they’ve talked about loads in their “what you been playing?” section but the extra time since the last episode should allow for some curveballs hopefully.

That's great news! Not that I wanted to rush anyone. Looking forward to it.

Thanks for all the recommendations of The Back Page podcast, it's terrific. Probably the first video game podcast I've looked forward to since Chet & Jon stopped. Pretty sure most people on here would enjoy it, give it a try if you haven't.

Very much agree but there's at least one person who doesn't like it...... 😳

I enjoyed the TCGS GOTY show a lot, all four hours and 38 minutes of it :huh:

 

Spoiler

Very happy with their game of the year choice, especially as it matches mine, but I got the impression it was always going to be that game from when they first started talking about it. Gentlemen of taste, evidently.

 

And it's always entertaining to listen to James getting completely trollied :lol:

 

Many thanks to @murray, @elmo, @jcafarley and Sean!

Absolutely adored the TCGS GOTY show, it was totally worth the wait.   As a few others have said, there wasn't as much "drama" in this year's episode and I think the eventual winner was probably always going to win if you'd heard how they spoke about that game earlier in the year, but the thing which sets TCGS apart from other gaming podcasts has always been the genuine love of video games that the guys have.  It never feels jaded, it never feels like it's a chore (even you James!) or a job. It's a passion project and I don't think you can fake that easily.  Superb episode from a wonderful podcast.

Matthew fucked it on home turf. 
 

Spoiler

I’m someone who’d give Nintendo £60 for Galaxy 2 even if it was a bare bones port only available on a wet Wednesday in March. But you give Sammy all the meat and potatoes games for free and when he got Ghost Squad I was Team Sammy all the way.  And then Matthew turned down Resident Ewiil for a Wii Ware game about a puddle. Enjoyable wife shenanigans too.

The budding romance between James Farley and Jägermeister across GOTY and last night's stream is a rare thing of beauty in this world.

 I've added some to the shopping list and checked if I have an appropriate coffee cup.

I was shocked at first because I thought he meant he was using an espresso coffee cup for the Jäger and dropping that into a bigger mug with the red bull.

But the revelation was actually worse 😂

Back Page Wii Draft Episode... 

 

Spoiler

Castle totally fucked that. Absolute madness. Particular highlight was the re-release/Wiiware category. I can only think he was still reeling from Sam stealing his wife.
