Snoop Dogg’s Role at the VGA’s Detailed Along with List of Confirmed Celebrity Attendees

There has been little said about which celebs will be showing up to this year’s Spike Video Game Awards, until now. Although already confirmed a while back, there is news that Snoop Dogg will again be at this year’s VGA’s. We have gotten news from a popular casting website that Snoop Dogg be presenting an award with a “Jamaican Queen”. Snoop is a prefect celebrity to join into the gaming festivities because he is a big gamer himself! (Culture, Industry, VGA's 2012)

Was wondering who was going to show up this year. Not the biggest VGA fan but it is entertaining to watch, may be a bit of a joke but entertaining to say the least.

Honestly, the only "celebrity guests" could be the cast of Breaking Amish for all I care. I watch the VGAs solely for the world premiers, the rest of the show and all their celebrity guests completely escape my mind as soon as they leave the stage with how un-entertaining and forgettable they are when presenting/performing in the VGAs

Samuel L. Jackson
Linkin Park
Stevie Wonder
Tenacious D
Mike Tyson
Tony Hawk
Foo Fighters
Hugh Jackman
Tiger Woods
Vin Diesel
Charlize Theron
Kiefer Sutherland
Dwayne Johnson
Neil Patrick Harris
Zac Levi
Jake Gyllenhaal
Eva Mendes
Kevin James
50 Cent

Well, at least I know who most of these people are, as opposed to previous VGAs.. still I feel the VGA's will once again shit on any form of credibility, and end up being another circle jerk... who the hell am I kidding

Of course it will be, I mean PRESENTED BY DOCTOR PEPPER... not slowing down with those sponsors eh?

Assuming you were the director of the show and you had the appropriate funds, what would your show be like?

My show would have celebs, but I would put devs and industry people first. The show IS a joke and worthy of watching on youtube, after the initial showing.

I saw the list for the VGA's... And it's basically boils down to "Most hyped game wins!"

Why was Dragon's Dogma not found on ANY list at all?

I refuse to watch them... And Have not done so in a few years... I'll just see the trailers after the show!

-Their reaching out to an audience that still doesn't like video games or take it seriously.

-Having celebs also means more sponsors.

Snoop Lion. Snoop Doggy Dog is no more!

God damn it!

Why don't we get game industry celebrities like Todd Howard, Dan Houser, Fumita Ueda, Suda 51, Nolan North, Hideo Kojima, Jenova Chen, y'know people gamers actually care about?

These celebs don't play games, and it shows when they're on the stage with their half assed performance and childish jokes, Seriously WTF does Snoop Lion(omg) know about the game industy. I'd rather have someone who actually understands and can appreciate the work these developer are awarded for. Fuck you spike, and Fuck you VGAs, gamers only watch you for trailers, not for your shitty unrelated celeb appearances. Go to hell

all you people saying it's a joke and a misrepresentation of gaming culture will find yourselves watching it live on your couches sipping on dr pepper and eating doritos.
