VGA 10: The Most Exciting/Disappointing Moment of The Year and Other Impressions

Alien Lion Writes:

So VGA 10 have just ended and I feel like I deserve a fucking award for watching the stream to the end, despite having to suffer through the same fucking Jack Reacher/Dr.Pepper/Need for Speed/MMA commercial sequence over and fucking over again. What the fuck was the point of that??

While there, I will give out an award of my own to the VGA’s: the most exciting and disappointing moment of the year... (Industry)

So much for something for the "old-school gamers"...Seriously, what the hell was he talking about? I'm thinking he just lied, to get us to watch. I'm glad I barely watched. Thank God for DVR. I fast forwarded through the entire crappy show.

Old-school gamers = a bunch of old people talking games apparently.

Wasn't there supposed to be 5 unannounced games appearing at the VGA's? I only saw The Phantom Pain and Dark Souls II. Everything else we already new about. I either missed something, or they forgot how to count.

"3 sir!"

"3!"

They consider DLC games nowadays.

I hate how the celebrities said, "When I was growing up..." Don't they realize that most people watching the show, nay, most gamers are mature adults? Maybe, when I was 12 I would have enjoyed the jokes and all the cursing, but as a man with children of my own I'm glad my kids were in bed or I wouldn't have been able to watch it. It was like a GTA game. This is why gamers have bad reputations. The VGA's actually hurt gaming's image.

This is the last year I will watch this train wreck of a show. For starters who is the target audience? It seems like they are aiming for pre pubescent teens. Sam Jackson needs to get over himself. His routine got old in the first five minutes. The orchestra was entirely out of place. They tried to class it up, but it failed miserably.

Last years show was magnitudes better, but still painful.

This show has well and truly lost it's way.

That orchestra was hilarious. There was one chick dressed up in learther acting like she was the fucking batmAn, playing that celo. Wtf??

This year's VGA wasnt as exciting as last years IMO in terms of game premieres. Not alot mind blowing reveals other than TPP and DS2.
