Rantgaming: "The tenth anniversary of the Spike Video Game Awards show can be summed up in two words: “music” and “premiers”. Suffice it to say, the Video Game Awards show was not bad this year, but rather bare-boned. I anticipated that this year was going to bomb big time. I figured it was going to fail in some stupid, convoluted way. However, to my surprise, the show wasn’t all that bad. Although I stretch the use of the word “bad”. It just lacked a lot of what was supposed to be the premise of the entire show: awards and recognition."
