These awards just show what an awful year it was for gaming originality and game design flew out the window.

Untitled Goose Game is more like a simple browser game.
Outer Worlds is very skin deep and barely an RPG, boringly unchallenging combat and tropey fetch-quest gameplay.
Control has a decent premise and design but this is overshadowed by boring combat, the worst game engine in years along with terrible performance and rendering.
Disco Elysium is probably the single refreshingly new and well put together game in this list that isn't just a mass marketed rehash of previous games.

Just sad because there were so many good games promised in the last year or so and there have been so many disappointments. I just want my Baldurs Gate 3, System Shock 3 (probably already dead) and a BF game that doesn't suck (everything since BF4)
