"Geoff Keighley tried something different for The Game Awards. There were fewer celebrities, a greater emphasis on developers and gaming culture, and Spike TV was not at all involved. Overall, most would say The Game Awards were far better than Spike’s Video Game Awards (later VGX).
The Game Awards’ success means that another show is planned for 2015. During his panel at PAX South today, Keighley confirmed that he’s looking towards bringing it back. Just don’t expect to hear anything until much, much later in the year."
