Find out who were the winners and losers at this year's VGAs.
More winners added - Best Graphics, Best PS3/360/Wii/PC/Handheld games, and more.
They handled the awards crappily this year but I liked the Uncharted3 trailer.
lol MS nor Sony won an award, if you don't count limbo since it is an Exclusive for XBLA Edit: yeah it was rubish indeed i thought the 13 announcements would be games but only announce games were Uncharted 3 Mass Effect 3 Insane SSX: Deadly Descent Forza 4 Elder scrolls V Prototype 2 Thats 7 were are the other 6!!?? they should have just cancelled VGA's and announce them at E3 2011.
best graphics God of War 3 agreed
most of us expected it to be real lame
i feel rick rolled for falling for the VGA hype. happens every year
HOW was Gran Turismo 5 not even on the list for Driving Games?? But yet Splt/Second was!? WTF is that bull?
Let me answer this for you when they do an award show they do the voting which won like weeks before the show so they can see which people to invite to the award show. Lets see GT5 came out 2 weeks ago right so there that your answer.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 deserved way more praise then just best Wii game
WTF Character of the Year Sgt. Woods – Call of Duty: Black Ops????? OMG FAIL John Marston, developed as character and they gave the award to fvking generic cod character.FAIL. But RDR really deserved the honor of GOTY.
Well, I gotta say I agree with RDR winning. Just a sick game. Though, no offense to any other handheld games, I can't imagine why Kingdom Hearts BBS didn't win best handheld game.
Red Dead well deserved GOTY. I love that game.
I have yet to play it, but I'll probably get it when it becomes a Greatest Hits title.
It's going to be a while before Greatest Hits... they're gonna make a G.o.t.Y edition
the viewers are the losers of the 2010 VGAs because it was rubbish
Just pointing out that this isn't the full list. Don't know what happened, but they didn't announce all of the winners... I'll update the post if we find them out.
Horrible Awards. I expected them to be bad but best character goes to Sgt. Woods? WTF. He has absolutely no emotion and barely did anything the whole game. They were either bribed or have never actually played the CoD campaign before. Or they are just completely stupid. The premiers were fairly good though. I was expecting a little more but w/e.
Although he wasn't a bad character... looking at the competition, urgh, he shouldn't have won. Best performance also stung a bit... Who decided the winners? At least they got the most anticipated game right.
Character of the year TOTALLY should have been John Marston.
John or Kratos Who the hell had any emotion connection to Sgt Woods. He was an asshole no body like everyone in COD. Doogie won Best Male? Spiderman Shattered Demensions has the shittiest dialog lines of any game I played this year. Downloadable GOTY: No DeathSpank is an imidiate fail in my book, as it is the best downloadable game I have played this year. Excuse me while I go vomit.
Any awards that are voted on by fans rather than experts are little more than popularity contests. Fastest selling game wins the award that's voted for by fans.
I don't agree with a sinlge award. Best shooter CODBO?? That's total BS. Battlefield Bad Company 2 is the shooter of the year. Also GT5 not even nominated?? What a joke. Spike awards = shit.
BC2 was definitely SotY. I still play BC2 and still have a ton of fun but I played BO for 2 days and got bored of it. I thought best indie game should have gone to Super Meat Boy too. Limbo was good but SMB had sooo much more.
Like I said GT5 came out 2 weeks ago!!!!! IT WONT BE IN THE AWARD SHOW. I just cant get how people dont use their brain.
I wonder why GT5 wasn't on that list!?
I really don't care for stupid excuses. Next year they won't use it because it was released this year. So GT5 got cheated out of a possible award. Spike = shit
Yeah, and Black Ops only came out 4 weeks ago. People who arange award shows are usually industry insiders who have access to these games before anyone else.
Anyways, these awards should be held after the year is over. Sometime in January to give every game in the year a fair chance.
Yep. BFBC was awesome. I could see Reach beating it out, but COD? Come on.
I agree that Bad company 2 is a better shooter than CoD: Black ops, but the one reason that I think it won was because it has at least 20 different game modes including zombies, so theres just alot more content there, and they haven't even released any DLC yet.
Yeah most of it are horrible.. :/
Well done Red Dead! Loved the premiers :).
I was between RDR and ME 2!The GOTY prize was well delivered to RDR!But RDR or GOW 3 should have won Action/adventure GOTY and not AC Brotherhood!
I dont think you guys noticed, or I probably missed something at the beginning but where are the awards for the Best PS3 game, Best 360 game or Best Graphics There are still a lot I don't recall
I didn't see no best fighting game awards, lamest VGAwards ever.
agree with that, every genre has to be in.
GOW III GOTY for me!!!
Indeed better game in my opinion but not get me wrong, RDR was great too well deserved, good talent had those people.
They could of add them all if they didn't try to be funny and acting from all the rehearsing G4 awards tuesday.
If you watched VGA before you know what to expect. The show is crap every year. Nothing new. The best thing about it is new trailers and game announcements. Don't take the award part serious.
How the hell does AC:B beat out RDR for action/adventure GOTY but yet RDR wins overall GOTY? Never mind. I'm cynical and I know the answer to this. What a crock. Edit: For clarificaton, RDR is my game of the year. It just doesn't make any sense that it lost IT'S OWN CATEGORY to another game. Not a crack on Assassin's Creed.
Like you said I think we all know the reason why. Didnt Uncharted 2 lose in the action adventure catergory but then went on to win goty? AC Brotherhood is Assasins Creed 2.1 So why does Brotherhood get a GOTy nominee, but Not fallout New Vegas? Whole lot of shadiness.
I didn't agree with best charater, kratos was my choice...
I cannot believe Sony Santa Monica wasn't even nominated for best developer. They put in an unbelievable amount of work into GOW3.
Another PS3 exclusive wins best graphics...
I still just don't understand how ME2 is the best 360 game, GoW3 is the best PS3 game, but somehow Red Dead is the overall best game. Something just doesn't add up...
Yeah! It sure doesn't add up! Go bessy67! :)
Was this done by community voting? Cause the wins and losses makes no sense, like how can a game be game of the year when it doesnt even win best game on any platform? Im not saying its not good as its fantastic, im saying the logic isnt well... logical...
There is a simple explanation: spread the wealth. Voters gave GOTY to RDR, so to be "fair" they gave best A\A to Assassin's Creed because they felt it deserved an award as well. It happens at the Oscars too. Very few movies win every award they're nominated for. The only exception I can think of is LOTR: Return of the King. That "share the wealth" mentality is the reason a movie, or game, will win the big prize, and not win any lesser awards. QED.
black ops..... entire list is invalid Except the Independent games, no matter what they are all winners too me independent games are the only original and awesomely new games coming out.
some i agree with some i dont. Thats the way it is for any Video Game awards for me
One question???ME2 became best x360 game.So,its better than RDR here.RDR on PS3 was the same as X360 one.But ME2 in pc was better than X360.Then how come RDR wins GOTY?Look at the equation,in spikes opinion, x360- ME2>RDR ps3RDR=XboxRDR. pcME2>XboxME2 .So.......
