And Genshin Impact fans don't do it because they believe the game deserves the win, but because they hope they will get more free currency to roll in gacha.
This is actually true on a ~75% of the fanbase tbh. Last time Genshin won an award, we were given 10 free pulls and everyone's starved for them. But that reasoning only exists because they were previously given wishes, if MHY hadn't given free wishes bc of Game Awards, these "bribing votes" wouldn't exist.
This is the video game equivalent of “She ain't gonna fuck you, bro”
Are you winning son *SIMPING DETECTED*
Well because they do, last time was 10 free pulls or the equivalent of 15 to 20$
B r u h
Seems you don't realise how big Genshin actually is.
Or maybe, you know, because the game is actually really, really good?
And doesn't help that the community is huge lol
Just look at the meme sub for Genshin or the leak sub. Those alone are bigger than this sub. That says something about the sheer size.
Bro... the people on the genshin subreddit are actively saying that they did this for free in game stuff
10 free pulls ist much who cares who wins
Of course a lot of people are doing it hoping to get free stuff.
But my point is, Genshin got that huge because it is a good game in the first place and many people are also voting because it is a good game.
Anyways, this award is just a popularity contest and the biggest and more loyal fanbase will win anyways and we'll forget about it by the next day.
It got popular because its an open world gacha game, people that don't have consoles would love that. For people that already have consoles it doesn't stand out as much because there are better open world games they can pick from. For mobile players there's nothing else out there
Genshin impact fan spotted.
Sounds like a toxic sonic fan
Sounds like cope
Bro I like Genshin but in no way does it deserve to win any awards, especially with what else was in the running. The votes are clearly bribe votes
When did Mhy bribe its player? lol
I'd rather see Elden Ring win but well, its a popularity contest in the end.
I checked some of the other subreddits (Elden Ring and Genshin Impact) and man they don't like the idea of Sonic Frontiers actually winning this.
You'd be surprised how popular Sonic is in the souls community lol
Wait really?? I wonder why that’s a thing in Souls community 😂😅
Some guy pressed me on the Elden ring reddit cause I wanted sonic frontiers to win like you guys should be focusing on game of the year and possibly losing to stray😂
Is the Stray thing a meme or is it a literal thret?
A bit of both but more so a meme
Oh no, anyway
I think Sonic is only winning out of spite votes against Genshin tbh. Horizon Forbidden West and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 barely got any when they should have been heavyweights in this alongside God of War: Ragnarok and Eldin Ring
I find it funny how Sonic's rival here isn't God of War or Elden Ring but fucking Genshin Impact.
I voted Elden Ring, but I would much prefer Sonic getting GOTY over that gambling, pay to win trash that is Genshin.
Genshin isn't p2w lmao
Don't froget to come back for the round 3 that startes 5th December.
Edit: THIS IS PLAYER VOICE AWARD (If you were wondering.)
(4.12. 0:02 CET) Current resultes are 1) Frontiers 15% | 2) Genshin/Elden 14% | 3) GoWR 12% | 4) Stray 11%
I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE, EVEN THOUGH I AM STRO-ONG!
NEED SOMETHING MORE THAN ME
SOMEONE TO PUSH ME TO VICTORY!!
LETS SEE WHAT WE CAN DO
TOGETHER ME AND YOU\~U
CAN'T BE AFRAID TO TRY
KISS YOUR FEARS GOODBYE 💋
NO LOOKING BACK!
YOU AND I WE'RE ON THE ATTACK!
FULL SPEED AHEAD!
Wait, Frontiers acc has a chance?? OVER RAGNAROK?? AND ELDEN RING??
Yea, as long as we also pull or weight in the 3rd round.
Yes. Gott knows what happened. But the blue boy's back.
Given how GoW is nominated for so many awards. It's likely they don't even care. No one talked about it on GoW sub either
Hold on, which award is this for?
Player's voice award
And you win that from Player votes, I see
Where might I vote for Frontiers?
I will become the biggest Genshin hater
We need to beat virgin genshin impact
I think a lot of people who are upset with this aren't even aware that this is only for the "players choice" award. God of War or Elden ring are 100% going to get nominated for something this year. Frontiers as flawed as it may seem, 100% deserves something because I legitimately think it's something special.
Also. Genshin Impact didn't even release this year lol.
Come on guys we can do this, Sexshrek Impact doesn't deserve to win. I think they promised protogems to the playerbase (In game currency) and that's why they are voting a lot for it.
I like Genshin but no it does not deserve an award. It must be defeated
time for them to face their fears
Guys remember, if we win we might get Sonic Adventure 3! (And hopefully a pc port of Unleashed)
I can guarantee you that winning or losing completely inconsequential awards like these will never have any real impact on the planning that goes behind deciding what games get to be made or not.
To be fair I'm sure getting a award will signal to Sega even more so that they struck gold with the new formular getting them to invest more into this branch of their company again.
Afterall Frontiers positive reception to here already lead to Sonic Team being allowed to increase staff size again.
The positive reception already happened and was likely already noted by the SEGA higher-ups, we don't need TGA for that.
The only ones to gain anything from this would be the marketing team, who would now get to slap "PLAYERS' CHOICE GAME AWARDS" on every ad about the game.
who cares it's hype
IS THIS THE GAME AWARDS?
Honestly I don’t think it’ll win I do love the game but my vote is going for god of war ragnarok that game hit me in the feels
You can vote for 5 games this round not just 1.
We are making up for frontiers momentum in game
See I wasn’t going to do this but now I want to for the salt. Alright Sonic you got my vote.
THIS IS PLAYER VOICE AWARD
If you were wondering.
Pace yourselves. It doesn't matter who wins the second round, the real fight is to win the third. We're well in the top 5 of round 2, so our seat in the final round is practically secured.
i hope the pun on the title of the post is intentional, if its not, i will cry for 35.8 hours
If ya mean the momenutm part, yes. Else I don't know what you'r talking about.
yes thats what i was talking about
Genshin Impact does not deserve a win tbh, first off it's not even a 2022 game second off, it's just a glorified gacha game with bare minimum combat and an exploration system that owes most of it's personality to BOTW....
How did Genshin get into second place?
Other comments explain, is it true though? IDK I don't care for it or it's comunity that much. (though now the split is 16/15% in stead of 17/15%)
This is true, Genshin fans are botting votes so their game can win and they can get free stuff. This is why Genshin impact is so high.
So like… what category is it under cuz me no can find
We can do it, we can beat genshit, we can beat the pay to win mobile game that didn’t even fucking come out this year
I'm here intensifies
Blazed through all my accounts just now and voted for Frontiers and nothing else.
If we keep it up we can do this!
My ideal victor is Stray, tho
If Frontiers wins over Ragnarok and Elden Ring, I'll be extremely sad as a diehard Sonic fan of 14 years.
There is being a fan of something, and then there is being a blind fanboy who cannot see logical criticism. There is no universe where Frontiers beats Ragnarok on an objective scale.
Dude, this is players voice, not game of the year or any other category. The only thing we are saing with this is "We like the game, SEGA you are on a good track".
While it is true, most people are voting for their GOTY.
The current statistic of the 2nd round would like to disagree:
I'd be happy to be wrong on what I said. I'm not seeing the stats you're mentioning, but I hope you're right.
Just scroll down it's under nominated games.
