    Spike's VGA 2012

    http://www.spike.com/events/video-game-awards/
    December 7, 2012
    Since 2003, Spike TV's "Video Game Awards," has paid tribute to the year's absolute best in gaming and featured exclusive world premieres of the most anticipated games of the future. The "VGAs" have gained the reputation of being the place for the world's top video publishers to premiere their titles, and this year, "VGA Ten" will provide a sneak peak of the next generation of gaming.

    Samuel L. Jackson will return to Spike TV to host "VGA TEN," the tenth anniversary of the "Video Game Awards" live on Friday, December 7 at 9:00pm ET/6:00pm PT. The biggest night in the gaming universe will feature world premieres of the most anticipated games of the future and once again simultaneously air LIVE on both Spike TV and Spike.com

    Performing at VGA 10:
    Jack Black and Kyle Gass of "Tenacious D"
    Linkin Park
    Gustavo Santaolalla
    House DJ- Wolfgang Gartner

    Presenting at VGA 10:
    Zachary Levi
    Neil Patrick Harris
    Snoop Lion
    Jessica Alba
    Marlon Wayans
    Adam Scott
    Norman Reedus
    Steven Yeun from "The Walking Dead"
    And More To Be Announced
    I sure hope you enjoy muting everything except for the premieres!

    South Park Stick of Truth gameplay premiere is tomorrow. Like at E3 I hope Matt and Trey come out and insult them too.

    Those laughable selections

    Wonder how much you have to pay to get your game on the nominee list.

    Hope this'll be just as hard to watch as it was last year. I'll be ready with forks in my eyes tomorrow in the BG Chat.

    I'll only check in on this to see the "Best Overall" winner for the TF2 Saxxy's and The Last of Us.

    I hope Dishonored cleans up. Its one of the few original titles up there that gave us brand new gameplay.

    That would be fantastic. Unfortunately it's not mainstream enough to take anything (this is the Spike VGA's after all) and Arkane Studios I imagine doesn't have the cash to pay out for that kind of propaganda. Geoff Keighley is one of the biggest tools in the industry. The sub par AC3 will probably win in most of the categories it's in.

    Wind Waker as a nominee for Game of the Decade when there were two way better Zelda games released? Wind Waker? I'm even more confused by that than Wii Sports, because technically speaking at least Wii Sports is the highest-selling game of all time. What the hell did Wind Waker do for anyone?

    ...also, do they know most people consider a decade to be from 2000-2010 and not from 2002-2012?

    why are they even doing a game of the decade, its not even the end of a decade -.- I can see maybe back in 2011 as a wrap up but not 2012.

    WW is my favorite Zelda next to Seasons and Ages =/. Hated TP, SS had really only 1 temple that I liked, OT/MM are last decade. For as much as I like WW I can't stand the 2 zeldas on DS, 1st one's main dungeon that you had to keep back tracking through and with a timer, the 2nd you had to drag zelda's ghost around the whole time and deal with her in the knight armor, not to mention the train was zZz.

    How did Claptrap out rank Handsome Jack for best character nominee for borderlands 2.

    Wind Waker had brilliantly fantastic art direction and probably the best death of Ganondorf ever (OMG did Link really just down thrust the Master Sword into his cranium?!?!), but other than that yeah I got nothing. I definitely liked Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword more though.

    Not that I agree with them, but even if we ignored the popularity of Wii Sports (driven by the fact that it was included with a lot of consoles), I can't imagine it didn't have some impact on paving the way for non-gamers to get into gaming, specifically tablet/smartphone gaming. It's a stupid category in a stupid award show.

    Also the retarded flute playing sections... I couldn't get past one of them after a bazillion tries and said screw this, and haven't went back to it.
