No...The host wasn't any better.

Errol James2353d ago

really? I thought he did a better job than Neil Patrick Harris. He was funny and he had a pretty cool entrance as opposed to that dance number they did last year.

Lord_Sloth2353d ago

I dunno. I found Neil to have a better sense of humor about him and he gets probs for insulting the VGA on the VGA.

"He was funny"

Forcing video game references stupidly just to show that "WE GAEMRS NOW GUISE XD" is well, uh, stupid. And if you laughed at any of the pitiful, completly lame stances of forced comedy that were present throughout the whole show, then you should be ashamed of yourself.

mw3 won shooter of the year... this is why the VGA's are a horrible award show.

ABizzel12353d ago

Overall I felt this was the best show so far, but that's not saying much. Most award shows aren't entertaining, there's generally a couple of reason you tune in, but as far as this VGA goes it wasn't bad, and that's the highest standard they have going for them right now.

I felt they should have had more awards shown, and not some huge montage of what won what, that many people missed.

The Hall of Fame was a nice touch that should be looked into more.

The breaks with the live Fruit Ninja and other games should be kept to a minimum. It's nice they're highlighting iOS and Android games, but the general audience isn't tuning in for that, so keep it lite.

The host was ok, not bad, not hilarious. Although he did have nice gaming references, and a likeable quirkiness.

The musical performances are debatable, but try aiming for a DJ, as well as artist from different genres come up to perform a song or two.

I think these changes would make the VGA's a decent show to watch. And of course have tons of game trailers and announcements for the show.

Once I saw that trailer for last of us, I was out... good thing they showed it at the start, seriously from the bits I saw it was an absolute piece of trash like every year. Just a bunch of random celebrity cameos that I neither nor care to know about. Incredibly annoying, the VGAs are an insult to gaming. I laugh when they try to get taken seriously, yea right.

Lucky... I stuck it out to the bitter end hoping for some redeeming surprise announcement somewhere. But in the end it was a turdfest. Should have just watched the trailers online and spent those two hours gaming.

OllieBoy2353d ago

I turned it off after The Last of Us trailer.

Sounds like I didn't miss much.

dark-hollow2353d ago

why?you missed commander sheperd running from death beams from a 150ft long reaper then a thresher maw came out of nowhere then start beating the reapers a$$!!!

Relientk772353d ago

I'm suprised the first world premiere was The Last of Us. I thought it'd be near the end or something

30mintutes of content with 2 hours worth of ads! Mygod... How do you Americans put up with all these advertisements :o And I thought it was bad over here in the UK...They didn't even give out the awards properly... Instead they chopped up melons and ate cakes... (also they nominated Dead Island for an award and didn't even invite them to the show!! (shows how fixed the awards really are and how did MW3 get best shooter :o... SO many great new fps's out this year that where amazing!)

Reveals where decent though last Of Us looked amazing so did Diablo 3 and I'm intrigued by EPICS new game. (hoping it's an good RTS!!)

Augmented Reality was decent too.

zerocrossing2353d ago

Damn... Good thing I didn't bother watching it this year then.

I swear the VGA's are the worst thing to happen to gaming since they gave teenagers and Sociopaths a headset.

I would really like to see a proper game award ceremony one day, one that doesn't just plug celebs for an hour, fix the awards and cater to idiots.

Pikajew2353d ago

I couldn't watch it because a stream I found was so laggy.

Ddouble2353d ago (Edited 2353d ago )

Tea bagging was OTT lol but apart from that it was good/ok. The reveals and trailers are what made me tune in, more so than the awards themselves.

Also I didn't like how you couldnt stream it if you're outside america but i found one anyway.
