Well, the chat during the Awards live show is fun.... idiots spamming "/claim" to get the Steam Deck they did not win.

TIL - Spend money at GrubHub, and they'll let you become a billboard in PUBG by giving you a GrubHub vehicle skin.

I think I would do that and constantly eat fries, sandwiches, etc out of brown bags to make other drivers think I'm eating my delivery orders

I work for a Fortune 100 company that did that this year - axed a bunch of marketing/events people right before the annual customer event.  Farking rocket scientists.

It's hilarious how bad this award show is, even by the standards of awards shows.

/didn't win a steam deck either.

I tried watching it a couple years ago.  It was just incredibly boring and drawn out just to catch some game trailers I could watch on YouTube immediately anyway.

Excuse me, get it right.  It's not 'The Game Awards', it's 'Geoff Keighly's The Game Awards', you can verify this by his rampant self-promotion, including adding himself as a farking tag on Twitch for the channel, and his inability to use the platform of an industry award show to invite and involve other people to primary hosting duties.

Also, in an industry hellbent on being safe, he literally created a situation where a stranger with a public ticket appeared on stage for the duration of the GOTY announcement.
