Two games keep surfacing more than any other, Starfield, which landed a singular nomination for Best RPG, and Hogwarts Legacy, which got exactly zero nominations acros…

    The problem with HL is that it had very little to offer beyond “you’re a witch at Hogwarts”. They put together a great setting… then did nothing with it. It’s a huge pity and a great waste of something that could’ve been amazing.

      I absolutely liked the castle, was very cool, but aside from a few story missions it didn’t feel like you were in school.

      You can run around at night without issue, didn’t have to attend certain classes until you wanted. Maybe some more persona style social simulation aspects mixed in would help. Idk.

        I don’t know, the class component thing in fire emblem three houses absolutely killed my interest in that game. Sometimes it’s good to skip a bit of the monotony.

          This is true, it can really throw off the tone. But for a game that is supposed to be about going to school, it didn’t really feel like it.

          Maybe they did try it and had to drop it because it wasn’t fun. Not sure.
