KoopaTV's Live Reactions to The Game Awards 2020

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Or, Ludwig reacts to Sephiroth, and mind-numbingly says The Last of Us Part II won awards for hours after.

Every year, charlatan Geoff Keighley somehow tricks millions of gamers into thinking that The Game Awards is something worth watching. This awards show goes on for hours and hours with weird skits and commercials and world premieres, and gaming companies are fine with supporting it, since it's a great advertisement opportunity.

KoopaTV hates The Game Awards, but we still have some kind of token reaction to it every year because we want to be part of the conversation, and the industry sort of forces The Game Awards to be the conversation at the start of December every year. Still, you should treat this article as us doing you a favour if you haven't watched it yourself, since it's a miserable 200-minute slog.

To complicate matters, Nintendo told everyone to watch The Game Awards 2020 because the identity of the next downloadable content character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would be announced. Based on The Game Awards 2018 where Joker was announced as DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we would have to wait until the very end to get the announcement. We expected this year that the character would be something that panders directly to the sort of lowest common denominator that The Game Awards appeals to.

Things were different in 2020. And here are the reactions, mostly from myself, but also Heavy Lobster briefly chiming in at the start until it quit:


[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/twitchgaming

[6:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Game Awards pre-show has started or something. I dunno.

[6:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or pre-show pre-show.

[6:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yeah I'm gonna get a glass of milk.

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reminder in 2018, Joker didn't show up until the last twenty minutes or so.

[6:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And the thing lasted 200 minutes.

[6:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Also lit Chanukkah candles.

[6:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who are "SanchoWest" "Briana" "Cupahnoodle" and "Adrian F.E"?

F.E = Fire Emblem?

[6:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I feel like I'm watching B.E.T.

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Okay, that's "The Game Awards: Pre-Show", and next is "The Game Awards Kick Off".

(Apparently these strange people will also be in "The Game Awards Post-Show", but I won't be there.)

[6:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Twitch now has NINE ads in a row.

[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: If Splatoon 2 had Rainmaker right now in Ranked I'd be playing that. Since the Splatoon 2 tournament over the weekend, I've been grinding to get my S+9 Rainmaker to X, but I keep failing.

[6:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Salmon Run is open now too, but it has an Octobrush, and there's no way I'm playing that.

[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is mostly digital.

[6:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "The big reason we're all here, the awards."

(Nope, I could not care less about your awards.)

[6:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Final Fantasy VII Remake won their best music award, which is nice, since I've been listening to that all week. Also the only game whose music I've listened to from their list.

[6:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (By the way, this "Kick Off" isn't the actual awards yet, since there's a countdown to 22 minutes from now for when it really starts, despite them giving out an award.)

[6:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Right now they're showing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, except with a little black girl as the character, from an indie studio.

[6:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Might be a boy for all I know.

[6:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Noe, definitely a girl. "Tchia"

"A game inspired by New Caledonia"

[6:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (More like, inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.)

[6:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In other news, The Last of Us Part II won "best action/adventure game".

I guess TLoU2 is going to be this year's Death Stranding.

[6:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The host has to stress this snoozefest is "jam-packed".

[6:46 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh hey, it's Best Family Game category, aka the Nintendo award.

[6:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Animal Crossing won. Whatever.

[6:49 PM] HeavyLobster: Xenoblade DE deserved best soundtrack.

[6:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Xenoblade can't win if it's not nominated!

[6:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: brb need to refill my milk and skip this Oculus VR ad

[6:50 PM] HeavyLobster: TGA doesn't nominate any Xenoblade game for anything.

[6:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, I'm missing a Persona song.

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...

[6:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Alright that scream wasn't good.

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "World premiere of a new band"

...I don't care???

[6:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER

the game awards 2020 black trans lives matter shirt ofk band
Someone specifically animated the shirt to say BLACK TRANS LIVES MATTER.
I wonder if the shirt exists in real life, and if they argue with people who say ALL Black Lives Matter.


[6:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: On the band member's shirt... or their animated self.

[6:58 PM] HeavyLobster: Sounds about right.

[6:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: League of Legends somehow won "Best eSports game", so clearly this isn't an annual thing.

[6:59 PM] HeavyLobster: Tencent got their money's worth.

[7:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who is Stephen A. Smith?

[7:01 PM] HeavyLobster: Loud black guy on ESPN.

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Well, I can tell he's loud and black.

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Who is Showmaker?

[7:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Some League of Legends kid from South Korea)

[7:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Geoff Keighley is on stage, telling us it's been a tough year.

[7:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Geoff Keighley shouting-out CHINA before anyone else.

[7:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Makes sense.

[7:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HE DID IT AGAIN.

[7:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "China, Europe, Los Angeles..."

[7:05 PM] HeavyLobster: Tencent owns his ass.

[7:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OH

[7:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SMASH

[7:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SMASH IS FIRST

[7:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WTF

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HOW IS SMASH FIRST

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHHHH

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HYLP;RT

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HOLY SHIT

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT'S SEPHIROTH

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Sephiroth descends to battle splash screen
OMG


[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OKAY

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT'S

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT'S GOOD

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT'S MUCH BETTER

[7:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAN EXPECTED

[7:07 PM] HeavyLobster: Sephiroth is a good pick.

[7:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: OKAY

[7:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'M HAPPY

[7:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'M SFDNRT

Sephiroth Masamune Mario sword through body Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
...I THINK I'M GOING TO BE VERY GOOD FRIENDS WITH SEPHIROTH.


[7:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: he ALMOST KILLED PLUMBER

[7:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DECEMBER 2020

[7:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SEPHIROTH

[7:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FOLLOWED BY BRIE LARSON

[7:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HAHAHAHA

[7:09 PM] HeavyLobster: Okay, Imma head out. Sephiroth is cool.

[7:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Ya

[7:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh

[7:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...wait can I stop watching this?

[7:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'M BUYING SEPHIROTH THOUGH.

[7:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Individually.

[7:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Like hell I'm buying the pass.

[7:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Meanwhile some woman is giving some dramatic speech.

[7:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I think she's from The Last of Us 2.

[7:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHEN WILL CRONO BE IN SMASH

[7:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...When is Final Fantasy VII Remake coming to Switch? :)

[7:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ...or PC? <.<

[7:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The show right now is just spamming guns.

[7:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And zombies or monsters or something.

[7:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Here's a new game that's more guns and blood. Or maybe it's the same game they just showed. It's all the same stuff.

[7:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I want to listen to One-Winged Angel but there's this awful awards show that's occupying my audio...

[7:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "No Man's Sky" won "Best Ongoing Game" as opposed to Fortnite.

[7:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: No Man's Sky director was stunned, because "Fortnite always beats us."

[7:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: FORTNITE LOST TONIGHT

[7:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NOT IN SMASH

[7:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NOT IN THIS IRRELEVANT AWARD

[7:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Best Art Direction" award to "Ghost of Tsushima", which means The Last of Us lost.

[7:37 PM] HeavyLobster: I bought the whole pass because Min Min.

[7:38 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They just said "Latinx" out loud.

[7:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Pronounced "Latin-x"

[7:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought it'd rhyme with sphinx.

[7:39 PM] HeavyLobster: I'm glad I'm not watching that shit anymore.

[7:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It's some kind of oppressed Latin people montage with Facebook Gaming)

[7:40 PM] HeavyLobster: For once Nintendo did something good for their fans so we don't have to wait through this whole shitshow.

[7:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I wonder how much they had to bribe Keighley to get the first spot.

[7:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now they're advertising "Wooper Watch" in Pokémon GO.

[7:42 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "You could encounter a Shiny Wooper. Take out your phone and play Pokémon GO... WHILE you watch this evening."

[7:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Some other movie star there now.

[7:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Giving nominees for best narrative.

[7:54 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I figured I'd say something since I was silent here for 12 minutes.)

[7:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Last of Us Part 2 won The Game Award for Best Narrative.

[7:56 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now "The Swedish Chef" is doing a bit?

The Game Awards 2020 Swedish Chef Muppets sketch bit kitchen
...Why does Geoff Keighley keep doing dumb segments with Muppets?


[7:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: This is, like, Family Guy humour or something.

[7:57 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Horrible.

[7:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (It's here because he's playable in Overcooked.)

[7:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There's apparently a Super Mari0 35th Anniversary Performance coming up after a commercial break.

[7:59 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The break is about a The Game Awards initiative sponsored by Gillette to...bring eSports funding to Historically Black Colleges and Universities? I think?

[8:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: NOW THEY'RE DOING AN ANTI-VAPING COMMERCIAL.

[8:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AGAIN.

[8:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHY DO THEY KEEP DOING THESE?

[8:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Commercial for Super Mari0 3D World + Bowser's Fury, which I don't know how they can do a commercial for it when they still haven't explained wot Bowser's Fury is.

[8:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now the Mari0 London orchestra thing is going.

[8:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Starting with the SMB overworld theme, because of course they do.)

[8:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, whoa, they're going brisk with this medley.

[8:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: All of these are from mainline platformers.

[8:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And it's over already.

[8:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "That kind of makes everything better, doesn't it?" - Geoff Keighley, admitting his show sucks.

[8:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.smashbros.com/en_US/fighter/78.html

[8:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth's page. (I've been refreshing almost constantly for this.)

[8:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Some anime thing is on the stream.

[8:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Literal anime thing.)

[8:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nevermind not anime, it's not Japanese.

[8:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Ark the Animated Series"

[8:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Fall Guys" winter trailer. (That game died quick.)

[8:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nathan Drake is apparently here.

[8:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Or his voice actor.

[8:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Apparently presenting "best multiplayer" game, alongside Instagram.

[8:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Among Us won, beating out Animal Crossing and Fall Guys.

[8:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Developer crying in their mask.

I guess it's too much for the woman on the phone to get her own Zoom screen.

[8:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Final Fantasy VII Remake won Best Roleplaying Game, beating out Genshin Impact.

[8:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I thought Genshin would win, because Geoff Keighley is a Chinese Communist Party slave.

[8:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Microsoft Flight Simulator won best strategy/simulation game, and it's also coming to Xbox Series X.

[8:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I want to know more about the arcade stadium thing.)

[8:40 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Genshin Impact commercial.

[8:43 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Uh oh, it's that guy who swore a bunch at previous Game Awards.

[8:47 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Reggie Fils-Aime.

[8:49 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: REGGIE GAVE AN AWARD IN ACCESSIBILITY TO THE LAST OF US PART II

[8:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Hmph.

[8:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: So many Nintendo fans still worship Reggie.

[8:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I hope they stop doing that.

[8:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I'm aware Reggie didn't decide who the winner was.)

[8:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/capcom-arcade-stadium-switch/

[8:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh.

[8:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The whole thing isn't free.

[8:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 1943 - The Battle of Midway is free.

[8:52 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Then you can buy additional packs of games.

[8:55 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Apparently, The Last of Us actually deserves the accessibility award)

[9:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: That didn't seem very new.

[9:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BUT there's a demo coming January 2021.

[9:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: THAT's new.

[9:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Troy Baker up, promoting The Last of Us.

[9:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Because it's not promoted enough, I guess.

[9:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Got a guitar guy playing something from that, I guess.

[9:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: He seems stoned.

[9:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: New game trailer; they got god's gonna cut you down playing I think.

[9:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Evil West"

[9:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Don't care about the game I just like the song)

[9:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: uh oh

[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Jacksepticeye or wotever his name is is on this.

[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For "content creator of the year"

KoopaTV wasn't nominated.

[9:18 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: These are all just streamers screaming into the mic.

[9:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Valkyrae" won, whomever that is. She seems like a ditz.

[9:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: For a streamer she doesn't seem very good at speaking.

[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Donald Mustard is on for some reason.

[9:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I hope they say mean things about Apple.

[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (He didn't.)

[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Master Chief is apparently in Fortnite now.

Master Chief joins the hunt Fortnite
I told a Fortnite player this announcement, and he said he already knew about it before the announcement.
...Whatever. Maybe all of the people who want bad character choices for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate can settle for Fortnite?


[9:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Available tonight.

[9:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And apparently Ninja.

[9:22 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The Fortnite streamer.

[9:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And a map.

[9:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Blood Gulch)

[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Agent Jones is just getting warmed up" uh oh

[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: HE BETTER NOT BE GOING INTO SMASH

[9:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Oh, no, it's not.

[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Some musician with a really weird style of speaking made some Rocket League musi.

[9:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Kaskade"

[9:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Team GO Rocket Grunts apparently have got Shadow Wooper in Pokémon GO.

[9:31 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Smash commercial. (For Ultimate)

[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Right after Sephiroth.

[9:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BYE.



Stay tuned for December 17, where there will be a presentation by Masahiro Sakurai dedicated to Sephiroth. KoopaTV will have reaction coverage on that presentation, but won't discuss Sephiroth in a dedicated article until that happens.


Not that you'd ever want to, but you can see KoopaTV's reactions to The Game Awards 2019 here.

    1. There's that, and a huge sense of relief I don't have to deal with a one-two-three combo of Min Min, Steve, and some icky trash like Fortnite guy.

  2. The only other time I've purchased a DLC fighter was Byleth when I realized I could do so with Gold Points--and I'm DEFINITELY getting Sephiroth. I really liked playing Marth back in Melee and Brawl because of his reach, but the latest installments have added so many sword users, and given so many other fighters tools, that the extra reach of a sword meaningless.

    Not so with 'ol Sephy's sword, no sir. I can't do without him now that he's here.

    1. I mean, there are a larger number of projectile users to the point that there's not a lot of characters that just have no answers for him, I'd think. I just think Seph's reach represents me being able to play Smash the way I've always wanted to keep playing it.

      Delete
    2. ...Jigglypuff. >_>

      You might be making conclusions too early. :x

      Delete
    3. ...I said NOT A LOT of characters that just have no answers. And in point of fact Jigglypuff was the fighter I thought of that got me saying that instead of claiming that no characters don't have answers. I watch Hungrybox's live stream around once a week, I AM aware that playing as Jigglypuff comes with problems.

      Delete
    4. :(

      We'll see if there will be lots more than just Jigglypuff (and I'm sure Kirby too).

      Delete
    5. If there are LOTS more I'm sure they'll nerf the guy.

      Delete
    6. ...I doubt it. >.>

      There haven't been many nerfs in this game so far.

      Delete
  3. When you say Chrono should be in smash, are you talking chrono trigger? Probably not. Anyway, do we really know anything about this Doug Bowser guy? I like Reggie, but i thought he had a business to save. Then again, that business is GameStop, so maybe he should quit while he's ahead...

    1. Yes, I mean Crono from Chrono Trigger.

    2. Man it would be so cool to have chrono n smash, along with all his time traveling buddies as spirits or something. Although I wonder why they didn't include Chrono Trigger on the SNES mini.

      Delete
    3. 'cause Square is mean.

      Though your comment just let me find a Wikipedia vandal today on the Chrono Trigger page that said it's on the Switch already:
