    It is pretty common for game shows to have their own awards (see E3 every year). The guys at GiantBomb during their Gamescon stream mentioned from their experience voting in such awards that there's usually minimum requirements for being eligible (such as being playable, even if it was just one very polished section). Admittedly there is frustration that they were just handing them out on Opening Night Live without mentioning what said criteria was for this particular year compute

    Best Xbox game is multi-plat too if you think about it.

    In fact, all three games nominated for both Xbox and PlayStation are multi-platform.

    the forums on this site are so ignored and outdated, it makes the WWF forums from the 90s look good.

    Yeah, first I was excited, but the more I watched the trailer the more I realized this isn't Saints Row at all.

    A lot of people aren't thrilled. It's almost right down the middle with up and downvotes. Now that it is being discussed on Twitter and Youtube influencers I'm sure it's gonna get worse for the game. Its being called Agents of Mayhem 2. It's not just the Hypster characters but the tone too a lot of people wanted the old school gritty gang tone like the original game.

    Can't disagree with Elden Ring, but Saints Row, really?

    I'm stoked about the announcement. I loved SR3 and enjoyed SR4. The trailer has no gameplay footage, so it's hard to know what it will be like, but they have my attention.

    I loved all 5 Saints Rows and I have lost all interest in it without even seeing any gameplay. To each their own.

    There's a new trailer out that shows a little more gameplay. I can understand people not liking the characters. Somebody said they were hipsters instead of gangsters. It's a reboot of the franchise, so maybe the crew is less gangster and in future games (or by the end of this game) they'll be more gangster. Either way, I'm not dismissing the game outright nor am I pre-ordering the game (although I never pre-order games).

    New Saints Row video shows gameplay and further details the reboot, following fan backlash

    That video just proved what I already knew. Happy at least you like it so they won't be wasting their time.

    I'm not trying to be antagonistic, people can like/dislike any game. I'm just genuinely curious what you disliked about the trailers so much.

    I don't like the hipster SJW crowd and a lot of these new games like Watchdog 2 and Legion. Gears 4 and 5 and now this just seems to appeal to that crowd. I just do not relate to that at all. That and I love the old cast of characters and couldn't imagine playing with anyone else. The 3rd Street Saints should have been left in the past if they wanted a new thing. Seeing the logo in the video and the purple just made me gag.

    Think of it this way now that I have zero expectations for this game the only way to go is up. They could prove me wrong. Definitely can't make me think any less.

    It seemed like they were making Agents of Mayhem 2, but then the publisher told them to rename it to Saints Row.

    It's very tone-deaf. Maybe I'm just overreacting but I thought Saints Row had the best and most well-rounded cast of characters second only to the Mass Effect Trilogy. Why you would want to fk that up is beyond me. They promised when Agents of Mayhem sucked that they would go back and do right by Saints Row now it would seem they were referring to the remaster of SR3 because this is def not doing right by SR.
