VGX And How It Set The Games Industry Back

TSA writes: "On Saturday night myself, Blair and Craig tuned into VGX to see what new games would be announced, as well as what kind of new information would be offered about existing games. I had some excitement prior to the event because I wanted to see new things, but instead of an interesting spectacle we sat through an ordeal that appeared to mock the games industry and misunderstood the target audience."

Sorry but theY didn't set the game industry back. It only proved that TV media coverage still is way out of touch with gamers.

They way i think it set the industry back is about the perception that TV/Media has with us gamers. I feel this only conitnues to spread this perception across to other people. Are games going to tailspin into brotastic nothingness? absolutly not, but the more people that believe this is how we are the harder it is to change that perception

I think Spike should give it up. It's obvious their grasp of what gaming culture is can be compared to CBS's grasp of what geek culture is (big bang theory).

IGN should host a proper award show.

I think Spike should try again but use IGN as host or have them help create a award show gamers would want to watch. But the main thing is do not lie to get ppl to watch.

VGX/VGA's are horrible shows for sure but I don't for a moment think they will set the games industry back. Why? Because nobody really cares about the event. Sure we watch it for reveal trailers but from all I have seen there is not one person out their that ever "expects" the production value of this show to be "good" let alone "great". We all go in expecting sh*t and we get sh*t. The 3hr event wont even make a TV appearance with out being "HEAVILY" edited down to 1hr...that should tell you all you need to know. 2hrs of fluff..1hr of content.

Anyway the show has been around for years now and the industry has kept going just fine despite its crappiness so I don't see how this show is going to be the one to "set it back".

I'm glad I did not watch that trash, I stopped anything VG"AXZFU" it's always been trash with terrible jokes and big names who know nothing.
