Its very clear from playing the game that the game which was developed is very different from the end product. Its far to easy, full of useless pick ups and a wafer thin story packed out with politically correct characters. The game should be re-named 'Derivative' as every aspect of this game is unoriginal. More of a casual gamers game100% disagree with all of the above, especially the "politically correct characters" bit (you can hide a lot of rabbits in that hat). It's like we played a different game. For me, it felt like a masterfully streamlined game, pruned of all the minutia and busywork so often seen in big-budget RPGs, with the focus squarely on atmosphere, ambiance, and characters. With absolutely zero microtransactions to boot. We sorely need more games like TOW, and I hope other devs have taken note of it.Those are not the qualities of a Game of the Year. There was nothing original about this game. If a streamlined game with no microtransactions makes a game of the year then that is a sad indictment of the either the games industry or the consumerWhy does have a game have to be original to be good?
