Usually, we in the games press/reviewers/writers/journalists/people-who-play-games-for-a-living core usually get a couple dozen emails a day asking us to consider a specific game for our Game Of The Year lists and whatnot. Some are genuine letters written by people who would like to see their hard-earned game get some recognition, others are complete PR babble that makes us want to cry when we see the same language and phrases used on nine different games. And then we get letters like this from Yoko Taro who basically wants you to know that he doesn’t care if NieR: Automata gets GOTY from anyone, as long as you enjoyed it. Enjoy this letter shared by Alice Bell on her Twitter.
Normally for GOTY list reminders we get nice emails like ‘these are the games we did this year, thanks :)’ but this is what we got from Yoko Taro and I agree with him WHERE IS MY CASH SQUEENIX?? pic.twitter.com/slCIteJkkf
