There are some among you who probably don't think the Jersey Shore cast should've been let anywhere near the Spike Video Game Awards. Spike VGA producer Geoff Keighley has an explanation for their seemingly pointless appearance, though.
Right...thanks to you, im not going to watch next year's VGA's Now.
am i the only person who doesn't know who the heck these people are? i know that one chick got punched in the face was all over the place but that's it? who the heck are these people? another flavor of the month or something?
I have never seen these people before in my life. I thought they were gonna punching bags for Tyson.
They're on a show about young Italian men who struggle to repress their pent up gayness. Nasty skanks also make an appearance.
Keighley's excuse is exactly why so many gamers think the VGA's are a joke. Inviting idiots like that to attract mainstream people who probably say "Oh! Yeah! I played Guitar Hero before!" when someone asks if they game. Douchebag guidos and the nastiest lookin' chicks in Jersey.
wow, these ppl (if thats what u want to call them) hav ruined my hopes of viewing the vga's again..
I don't know who they are either. but i can guess they are another group of talentless young ppl meant to appease the massive amount of mouth breathers out there that think anything on MTV is entertaining regardless of quality. also what's the point of making the VGAs more appealing to a casual audience? the average tv watcher doesn't give a sh!t about video game awards and the hardcore gamers that do are given new reasons each year to not watch. does it really make sense to alienate the audience to which you should be attempting to appeal? This was my first year to watch the VGAs and i can safely say i have no interest in ever watching again.
That show (VGA) was so stupid. Why did they put them up with Tyson? If I was Tyson, I would have just bit their fcuking ears off as soon as they opened their mouths.
But I was a nerdy guido. Sorry, my six pack is in the brown paper bag on my kitchen counter and not under my t-shirt.
Never heard of them, I didn't even notice them at the VGA's.
I had to google guido also. Never heard of that either. I been to NY/NJ several times and never heard of such a thing.
And let me tell you, there are very few people in this world with fewer brain cells than them. They were asked some of the most basic questions and they failed to deliver. They are hot looking chicks with no brains and dudes with more gel in their hair than Osha would alow me to wear at work due to the fire hazard issues.
I'm asking the same question, but not answer, maybe cuz nobody know about them They're from some kind of "Reality-(?) Show" or something?
that none of these people are from Jersey they're all guidos from long island or staten island which is NY not New Jersey which is the worse part about it they're comin here and making Jersey look even worse than it already does. I never ever even attempted to watch that show cause I knew it would be shiite but I feel for those that actually watched it....MTV is a joke but what else is new.
stupid guidos, they make italians look bad.
Makes the Jersey shore area look like crap, too. It's funny because a bunch of the cast members aren't even from there originally. Or so I hear, anyway - I'm not inclined to do research on this trainwreck of a show.
VGA's=HORSE VOMIT jersey shore=MOLDY HORSE JIZZ LOL Thank goodness i watch TV like 1% out of the week .. Hockey in HD (sharks ftw!) and thats all i need,non of this MTV garbage. that mini line backer of a chick looks incredibly disgusting too. they ultimately had no reason to be at the VGA's other then too make the allready horrific awards show even MORE pathedic :)
lol, shows like this are crap anyway, i mean put people in a house, club, town, on a beach, what ever they do and then tell them to find a way to love and hate each other.
So they're from a show? I thought they were just random people from Jersey. Maybe I was too busy looking at Tyson's giant gut when they were on. Anyway, why is everyone hating on the VGAs for having them appear? Apparently they're celebrities. Celebrities appear in awards shows. Makes sense to me. I mean I'm no fan of Tim Allen, but I wouldn't boycott the Oscars if they had him present one. Sometimes people around here don't make sense to me. It's like many of you have some natural compulsion to pretend you hate everything. Like we're supposed to think you're somehow better than the rest if us or you see something the rest of us don't see because nothing's ever good enough for you. It doesn't work guys. And if you keep up all the fake hate nonsense, soon enough you'll start to believe your own BS and then you won't be able to enjoy anything anymore. Taking stuff at face value isn't such a bad thing all the time. Entertainment is meant to entertain. If you don't like it change the channel or dont' buy the game or whatever. Spewing hate online won't help you get rich/laid. /rant.
I can't speak for every single person, but I can tell you most of us feel its pretty frustrating when you see such events perform so badly especially with something we all are fans of. This is no different than watching the Super bowl for football fans. We are all fans of video games and would like to see the genre handled in a better light. Instead we get people who don't really know what they are doing. And the real gamers in the industry unfortunately don't have the power to call the shots. This isn't a show Geoff really wants or any serious gamer who happened to work on the VGA's. They just aren't in a position of power. They only give input. If there was an open roundtable with an off the record discussion, the truth would come out. But instead we have to deal with what higher ups think we want in a game awards show. In the meantime, I say keep on complaining because this will eventually lead to a better production overall! I mean look what they did this year, they got rid of fluff like an overall unfunny host!
why wouldnt they hate it ? It's one thing to add stars as extra in a show that is good and well done ..but that ? One would think with so many things badly done in the show , they could focus on fixing them rather than having stars around as the priority .
Tim Allen is an actor so it'd be fitting for him to give awards to other actors. Game DEVELOPERS should be giving awards to other game developers not some random celebrities. THAT'S why the VGAs are a joke and THAT'S why I'll wait for the AIAS GOTY.
MTV made them put that cast on the VGA awards. That crappy show is doing well for MTV and being that Spike TV is owned by them (Viacom) they forcefully put that cast on the show. And guess what, they will continue to tie more MTV properties into that waste of an hour called the VGA's. The funny thing is even though he is defending it, I know Geoff Keighley was opposed to having them on the show. That cast has nothing to do with gaming. It was all part of keeping it in the MTV family! Not only that, it looks good when it comes to selling slots to advertisers and sponsors when you have the cast of a famous show appearing. We aren't dumb here. More than half of Jersey Shore's audience are female tweens.
I'm from Jersey, didn't even know guidos started breeding here again. So much collagen injected lips.
Same here man. After living near the Jersey shore for 10 years now, it's great to see all these NY ****heads get berated every summer when they flock down. My friends and have the habit of taking dumps on NY BMWs and Mercedes, quite fun actually. It brings a smile to my face knowing that more people actually hate and loath these sorry excuses for human beings than like them.
Either way, the VGAs still sucked.
The infamous punch: http://img.photobucket.com/...
Thanks for posting the link... Never seen the show before, but who the hell punches a girl like that? What a loser.
Holy crap. I was expecting more of a tap upside the head. That was a closed-fist knockout punch to the face.
The guy is a loser for hitting a women the funny thing is women is the only thing he knows how to knock out LOL. http://www.tmz.com/videos?a...
it should of said FALCON PUNCH
As if these kids were anywhere near as bad as lame the rest of the show. The joke awards given, Keighley claiming Halo: Reach would blow everyone away and prove to be GOTY 2010, Jack Black being obnoxious as usual, etc. The whole show was just an embarrassment and pretty much felt like a Nickelodeon award show. PATHETIC.
Hearing tony hawks explanation of action adventure or Jake gyllenhaal talk about his balls has convinced me not to watch it again i guess Sony saw what a joke of a show it was this year and didnt announce anything. The only thing that was remotely intresting was batman aa2 and spec ops the line.Last years teasers and trailers were better. Seriously tron and truecrime and to finish the sh!t sunday deadliest warriors...
I missed the VGA's (on purpose) ,'Tony Hawks explaination of action adventure or Jake Gyllenhall talk about his balls...' LMAO,wow,talking about his balls? Hows Keighley gonna explain this one?
Sorry my bad it was it had us by the balls still not very tasteful. But tony hawk took the crown action adventure according to tony hawk is picking up a girl sleeping with her then running away in your underwear when her boyfriend comes after you... Whats his definition of halo blowing your load on a girls face and then teabagging her?
If you're gonna have guests, have video game related guests. If you have to play music, show a performance from a game soundtrack. Keep it about the games. Not that hard.
Morgan "Man Jaw" Webb has more gaming street cred than him and she doesn't even play games, lol. And the VGA's? It's a garbage award show meant to attract a demographic audience. The problem is it's such a fail that it doesn't fulfill the purpose. Who still watches the MTV Music Awards? Point made, Thank you.
I believe she actually plays games, unlike Olivia "Any Pictures Of Me Hit N4G's Front Page" Munn.
a new low for the vgas
People want to see video games. They don't want to see Mike Tyson and the Jersey Shore cast. What a terrible idea.
VGAs really do suck. i have trouble believing there aren't enough personalitys in the gaming industry to make an interesting show using just them. i dont think you have to go all suit and tie if you use people like: you guys(Invisible Walls), Giantbomb crew, David Jaffe, Denis Dyack, Scott Rubin, Adam Sessler, Gabe Newell, John Carmak, etc. thats just off the top of my head. i bet there are a bunch of people in the industry that i dont even know about that could just as fun to watch. this wouldnt stop there from being celebritys. many do voice work or other stuff in gaming that there could still be room for them on the show.
No clue what that show even is...haha but I've gathered it has to do with douchebag guidos and sluts. Sounds like an MTV special.
The show is a bigger joke than the people who bought MW2 retail.
nothing like stereotypes playing themselves out. although i heard MTV took alot of heat from this show. Italian's are pissed off at MTV for making them look bad. it even made the news a few times too. anyway, i skipped it, because its a popularity contest. i watched a few of them in the past though. IIRC the first ones,but then i stopped when a few games were nominated for everything, and won them all. i'm surprised nobody beat the crap out of him for hitting a chick. Jesus, i know people who get brutally beaten or killed for hitting a chick like that. shows like this make us ALL look bad. it's like we just want sex out of each other. look at like EVERY MTV show now and days, even robot chicken made fun of this with their "next" skit. it also makes people look shallow too. damn tweens/teens eat these shows up though, since they keep pumping them out. i haven't had a reason to watch MTV in sometime, the only show i actually watch was "A Shot At Love: With Tila Tequila" the 1st one. and that was some time ago.
Anyone remember when MTV played videos??
