The Game Awards have truly taken on a life of their own, with both surprise games and surprise guest appearances. The 2019 show combined both of those things in one when the announcement of Fast & Furious Crossroads closed out the night's game reveals. The game was introduced by star Michelle Rodriguez, but once the trailer finished, Vin Diesel appeared on-stage alongside her, and fans were definitely not expecting to see him. Out of all the ways the night could have ended, few would have expected that, and the internet, perhaps unsurprisingly, reacted with a mixture of humor and disappointment.

Some were a little underwhelmed by the game...
"We need to cap this thing off with a trailer that looks like it was cut from footage shot on a PS2, and we need Vin Diesel to be in it."— Scott Wampler™ (@ScottWamplerBMD) December 13, 2019
Others were just hoping for some Smash Bros. news.
VIN DIESEL'S GONNA BE IN SMASH— slim thicc lesbian @ 22 days (@danversIesbian) December 13, 2019

I wouldn't want to fight Vin Diesel in real life, or Tekken.
I don't wanna say Vin Diesel is lying about being a gamer because he 100% looks like the typa dude to get in a fistfight over a Tekken game in an arcade in the 2000's— Merry Chrysler (@BugCatcherWill) December 13, 2019
It's a pretty good track record, to be honest.
the Fast and Furious game looks genuinely awful, but also video games starring Vin Diesel have a surprisingly amazing track record #TheGameAwards— Gene Park (@GenePark) December 13, 2019
And then it turns into Dynamax Machamp.

The general consensus is it might have been a tad underwhelming.
I'm sorry, but all of us Nintendo fan's getting hyped up for weeks for a Smash Bros character reveal, only to have the big ending surprise of The Game Awards being Vin Diesel's PS2 face?
That's objectively the funniest thing that's ever happened.— Joshua MacDougall 🎅🏼 (@FreakinClever) December 13, 2019
