So Spike nominates 343i as a candidate for Studio of the Year....and yet completely snubs Halo 4 for a GOTY Candidate?

LMFAO. Spike is such a failure.

How can you nominate a studio as a studio of the Year and ignore the only game they released this gen that would have made them stand out as a studio of the year candidate?

Who runs that network? Monkey's?

Funny thing is Microsoft pretty much owns the network lol

(One of the reasons why Sony's E# Press Conference wasn't aired live on there, but Microsofts was)

Journey for best graphics???
OmniSlashPT  +   708d ago
It's the best looking game out of all the nominees.
OmniSlashPT  +   708d ago
Best studio doesnt mean it made the best game. Best studio is also how the devs supported the game, online/mp support and forums, trailers, events, DLC's, etc...
Lvl_up_gamer  +   707d ago
Which means the game should have still at least got a nomination for the mass amount of content that was in the game then.

Any kind of marketing such as events was NOT done by the developers, it was done by MS's marketing department.

Sorry by to have a studio of the year, that means you must recognize what that studio has done for that year. 343i ONLY released 1 game this year. Halo 4. In order to recognize the studio for what they have done, you must recognize the game which the studio has created. To not even have Halo 4 nominated is just plain pathetic. There is more content in Halo 4 for your $60 then ANY other game released this year.

This is an outrage. Putting 343i in the studio of the year category is throwing them a bone saying "hey, we didn't nominate your HUGE game that has scored very well in the eyes of the industry so instead we are going to nominate you for studio of the year".

Most anticipated - The Last of Us :D

I voted Journey for over all Game Of The year because the game is breathtaking, amazing and i love the art design.
343 Industries for Studio of the Year, they did an amazing job with Halo 4, from characters, story and visuals, they did just an incredible job.
Best Xbox 360 game - obviously Halo 4.
Best PlayStation 3 game, even though how Assassin's Creed 3 was/is a blockbuster game, but i just can't see it beating Journey. So, again Journey.
Zombie U for Best Wii U/Wii Game, because it's the only good game on the list.
Best Shooter - Halo 4
Best Action Adventure Game - Assassin's Creed 3, obviously.
Best Role Playing Game - Mass Effect 3
Best Multiplayer - Halo 4, because i just love it.
Best Song in a Game - "Tears" by Helth
Again Journey for Best Original Score
Halo 4 for Best graphics, the combination between techincal and art design is breathtaking.
Journey for Best Independent Game
Best Handheld/Mobile game Little Big Planet Vita.
James McCaffrey as Max Payne for Best Performance by Human Male, his voice makes everything sound awesome.
Best Adapted Video Game - The Walking Dead
Dawnguard for Best DLC
Best downloadable Game - Journey
The Last Of Us for Most Anticipated Game - the game is awesome looks absolutely stunning and it is Naughty Dog, Naughty Dog and Naughty Dog, did i forget to say Naughty Dog.

best shooter and best multiplayer is going down between halo 4 and borderlands 2, but no having those two games for GOTY is beyond me, ohh and guild wars 2 was not nominee for best rpg, and black ops 2 for best dlc? beyond me!
th3n00bg4m3r  +   708d ago
You mean [worst DLC].
BananaEatingSquid  +   708d ago
Journey was an absolute beautiful game and I really loved my time playing through it the first time. After the first time, it got even better! Gorgeous graphics, gorgeous sound, just beautiful all around :)
MuhammadJA  +   708d ago
Best shooter = Borderlands 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Soldierone  +   708d ago
Cant believe Walking Dead made it on the list! That's awesome, but I honestly believe Assassins Creed is going to win. The show falls under the "secretly paid" avenue in my eyes.

It isn't a bad thing though, loving the heck out of Assassins Creed 3! Well deserved if they do indeed win.
PtRoLLFacE  +   708d ago
best dlc, black ops 2?
aquamala  +   708d ago
Dishonored,AC3,Borderlands 2 are on both best PS3/360 lists but not on best PC list, but XCOM is on best PC list but not on either best consoles list, why??
darkness625  +   708d ago
:( borderlands 2 is not on the list, then AC3 has my vote.
Kennytaur  +   708d ago
Wow, they've been able to fail at every single category. Emma Stones role in Sleeping Dogs was tiny, yet she got nominated for best female voice-actor while Will Yun Lee who voiced Wei Shen misses out in the male category. They've just nominated the same few games for everything.
Soldierone  +   707d ago
They always throw Hollywood stars in there for the sake of getting them to appear at the show and raise ratings. Facing facts if the general audience saw "Emma Stone!" they are more likely to watch than some voice actor that did extremely well in the same game, but has never been on tv or in a movie.

I remember there was one year where there was a ton of GREAT voice acting, then Megan Fox won somehow.
Darth Stewie  +   708d ago
People you do know your votes won't count for any award except most anticipated game right.
People complaining that Journey shouldn't win because it too short well let me remind you Skyrim won GOTY last year even though it was a buggy mess and broken on the PS3.
Why are Wii U games nominated but not PSASBR they both haven't released yet.
Oh well the VGAs are a complete joke anyway.
JAMurida  +   708d ago
So where the hell is Dragon's Dogma?
erikthegman  +   708d ago
No Halo 4 = Fail. What M$ and 343 have done with the franchise is unbelievable its just ridiculous how it could not even have made the list for Goty
Optical_Matrix  +   708d ago
No Witcher 2 on there is disturbing. And no Pokemon Black/White 2 for best portable game? I mean Gravity Rush and New Super Mario Bros.2 were excellent and deserve to be on there but the other 2 mobile games? Oh please. Terrible list. Not even taking into account impending releases of FarCry 3 and Hitman Absolution.
imt558  +   708d ago
I hope that Journey will win GOTY. Imagine, a downloadable game is GOTY.:)
freezola75  +   707d ago
Every year along with this questionable list of games, they seem to trollop some silly movie stars or talk show hosts out there that barely plays any games at all. Just paid to stand there and read the teleprompter and think they're so cool because they've been in a few movies or just the latest one.. Completely not relating with, but rather pissing off all of us gamers out there.

I'm with @NYC_Gamer watching for the new trailers and world premieres. Peace
yog-sothot  +   707d ago
Dishonored for me, without second thought
Loki86  +   707d ago
I refuse to vote for GOTY because the GOTY is not on that list.
josephayal  +   707d ago
Looks Like AC3 is the GOTY 2012
isyourhouseonfire  +   707d ago
ME3 all the way... But confused as to why Black Ops2 did not make the GOTY list. Have to wonder if there are advertisement $$$ getting the way?
Kalowest  +   707d ago
Black Ops 2 for GOTY, hell no.
iNFAMOUZ1  +   707d ago
wow halo 4 not nominated as goty? fuck you spike, never watching this crap again
KrimsonKody  +   707d ago
I hope Journey wins GOTY, just for the 'underdog' effect.

For action/adventure;
I enjoyed Dishonored & Sleeping Dogs more than Assassins Creed 3.

For shooter;
I'd choose Max Payne 3, but most likely Borderlands 2 will win because of its multiplayer.
Also, how did Halo 4 & BO2 make it into the list so fast? Halo 4 released too late, imo, & BO2 is riddled with issues, smh.

For studio;
Either Arkane or Telltale (The Walking Dead is a great game & very much underrated & overlooked.

For Anticipation (in this order);
The Last of Us
Tomb Raider
GTA5
The other two can take their time coming, but I want those three right now!

Who even cares about the VGA's. The only reason I watched last year was for The Last of Us reveal trailer.
NirvanaInChains  +   707d ago
Definitively hope me3 or the walking dead don't win.... Cant stand that boring ass show & game. should be called the Talking dead because that's all they do is talk . Would rather have CoD win. Borderlands 2 wins in my book.
KrimsonKody  +   707d ago
I agree;
The 1st season of The Walking Dead starts out really slow. But it is a good series. It just takes patience to stay interested.
However, the game is actually fun. Even if you don't follow the show, @ least demo the game.

That's how it happened for me;
I dreaded the 1st season, caught pieces of season 2 here & there, end up trying out the 1st few episodes of the game, liked it, & went back to catch up on the seasons.

journey and Mass Effect 3 and my GOTYs
bnaked  +   707d ago
Journey will win it all. No doubt..
th3n00bg4m3r  +   705d ago
Even though i voted, Spike TV are the worst. We do not need celebrities that does not care about video games, why should not [let's say] the guys at IGN host the show. Spike TV are the one that gave Madden NFL game of the year award,back in 2004.
