For once that seems like an actual valid list of good games.  Of course some people will argue over a few of them, but at least they aren't awarding games that aren't out yet and crap like that.

As trashy as Spike TV and the award show is, they usually have a very respectable list of nominees and winners.

Surely you're joking.

Two years ago, I believe, the Spike TV VGA's gave 'of the year' awards to, in a fair number of cases, to games which had come out anywhere from 3 weeks prior to the show's AIRING (not filming) to, in one case, a game which came out the Tuesday before the show aired.

The show was taped nearly 3 weeks prior to that.  Nearly 1/3 to 1/2 of the games hit shelves /after/ getting these awards.

Spike's awards have always been a joke, but this year they actually did the right thing for the most part.

The 2005 awards had some questionable choices, but the 2006 awards look solid.

Here's a list of the nominees:

http://kotaku.com/gaming/awards/spike-vgas-nominees-announced-320969.php

'Studio of the Year'

Bungie Studios
Harmonix
2K Boston / 2K Australia
Valve

Wait - what does this exactly mean? Congratulations on releasing a game?

It's interesting that Bioshock won best 360 game and Orange Box won best PC game when both were announced for both categories. Seems logical though (since Bioshock is great on 360 but very RPG light for the PC crowd; and Orange Box is huge on PC but the community playing Team Fortress 2 on 360 is very very small.

I enjoyed Halo 3 - but honestly don't think that the title really deserved to even be nominated for game of the year.

As for some of the other things..
Studio of the year??? What the hell kind of category is that? What do they rate it on? Quality of games produced? Fun atmosphere to work at? etc? Didn't all of those studios only produce a single game this year?

And yeah the whole Halo 3 fueled by Dew award is ridiculous.

Either that was paid advertising for Spike/Dew, or they're making fun of all the Dew marketing crap that centered around Halo 3. Either way, yeah, it's kinda absurd.

I think it's sad that people here are pointing at a nominee and saying YOU LOSE rather than celebrating the overhyped Bioshock. slywink

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Oh, and COD4? I've completed the first mission and I'm dismayed that the AI can use cover ala Gears, but I cannot.

There is no "official" game of the year. I think consensus detmermines what is considered the official game of the year. Once everyone has their awards out, we pick the source that tells us what we want to hear. slywink

Kudos to Bioshock and COD4.

Kudos to Spike TV, this is the 1st time where I've agreed with the majority of their choices. In other years their choices have often been embarrassing and ridiculous.

It is insanely stupid and makes me sad to be a gamer to see that the names of the winning games were painted on naked women. What a pointless gesture.
