  1. Excuse me for saying this, but… Seriously??? One of the most half-assed games Game Freak’s ever put out earns TWO awards?? For what, the animations (which are out-right awful)?? The story?? If there was even a “good” one?

    This is just one big “bruh” moment after the other for me, personally. SWSH does not deserve a SINGLE award for how cheaply executed these games are and have been, imo. Those are my two cents, anyway.

    1. It’s just most sales and global japanese product ( best japanese product???who knows how this is determined ). They don’t necessarily sound like they award it based on the actual quality of the game, which is actually a subjective opinion either way.

      In the end it’s all just made up awards for entertainment and marketing. The game sucks imo too lol

  2. I can guarantee you that if this game didn’t have “Pokemon” in it’s title, it wouldn’t have even been mentioned, let alone win an award.

  3. Wow, the comments say ine thing and the reviews say something different about the same Sword and Shield. I dont own the game people aay it is too easy and easy to be over leveled. How many hours does it take to beat this game?

  4. Hello, I am a Pokeman enthusiast, but I ask Nintendo to do something about people who buy out (in bulk) not leaving any products on the shelves for others, and those who bought the product put are selling them 3 to 4 times the cost. This will ruin your product. Thank you.
