@HydeLegion

I have 2 questions.

1: What do you all think about the idea of recency bias in the Game Awards nominees?

2: How do you feel about the state of the industry? With several outlets seeing massive layoffs or completely shutting down, does it make you worry for its future?

Scott Oroepel

@scottOroepel

If Among Us is nominated why wasn’t CrossCode? It’s up for my GOTY this year.

Also, I can’t choose between Ashley Johnson and Laura Bailey. Both are phenomenal. Where do you stand?

Thoughts on the future/potential of cloud gaming on the Switch?

Greysun Morales

Been playing Pikmin 3 Deluxe, ghost of Tsushima legends, and now No More Heroes 1. Might buy 2 down the line

Jerel

Which is the better value, the Xbox All Access program for a Series X, or getting a series X and purchasing Ultimate separately? With games rotating constantly what should I do for next gen? Purchase when I see fit or commit for two years from the start?

Nelia

Honestly, if an official Xbox series X fridge can happen, I wonder if this’ll open other mundane appliances up to the “video game edition” treatment. I wouldn’t mind like a PlayStation microwave or something tbh
