  1. I’ve never played a God of War game but I’ll be giving the latest a go when/if it’s one of the PS+ monthly games.

    On the BBC news at 10 last night they said the British games industry is going from strength to strength and is worth more than the film and music industry combined. Great news.

  2. They spelled Red Dead Redemption 2 wrong!

    Although I’ll accept it winning for music, just because it’s Bear McCreary.

    • I think (prior to release) we all thought RDR2 would sweep the awards. But having played it, I totally understand why it isn’t… It’s a technical marvel but my god is it boring as hell.

      RDR was so good. I think R* should stop taking themselves so seriously and inject a little fun back into their games.

      Not that anyone cares what I think 🤪

      • So what you’re saying is.. our score was about right. Despite the huge amount of shit we got for not giving it 10/10

        Well whodathunk :)

      • @tuffcub I’ve just looked up the tsa review, it got 10/10 from tsa.

        Am I being super thick here again?
