“In search of lost time.” That’s how he summed up this year Game Awards 2023 Our DaeL Editor. He points out that the disproportion between trailers, advertisements and participants’ speeches reached a critical point during the ceremony. He is not alone in this opinion.

However, he received more hypothetical criticism. Unfortunately, something tells me not much will change about this.
By the way, I agree that the music played too fast this year and I asked our team to relax this rule during the program. Although no one has been effectively silenced, it is an issue that must be addressed in the future.
