VGA Winners and My Thoughts!

Samuel L. Jackson in my opinion put together a good show. He was witty and absolutely hilarious. Seeing him spoof Call of Duty, The Walking and Halo 4 was pure comedy. After all the terrible hosts (Neil Patrick Harris) I can honestly say I laughed at a joke told during the show. Needless to say, Spike for once actually gave the audience a cohesive gaming award show filled with straight-to-the-point skits, award presentation and game trailers. The musical guest lacked but it beats having usher perform pop/r&b nonsense (E3 2012). Many of the celebrity speakers were held to a minimum and the fact that Spike brought an orchestra to play the scores of the nominated games was incredibly impressive. Shoutout to Spike TV, great show you guys. As for the awards, find out what I thought about the winners and who should’ve won certain categories below. (link via wikipedia, winners confirmed by myself at

Game of the Year The Walking Dead: The Game (Walking dead or Journey could have won and i would have been content with it. There both downloadble games beating out AC3 and Mass Effect 3!) 
Studio of the Year Telltale Games, The Walking Dead: The Game (Once again shouout to Telltale, hell of a game.)
Character of the Year Clap Trap, Borderlands 2 (Clap Trap is annoying as hell to me, I thought Connor deserved it.)
Entertainment Weekly andSpike VGA Best Game of the Decade Half-Life 2 (Half-Life 2 did deserve it but why is Wii Sports even in this category? That deserves and “lol”)
Best Xbox 360 Game Halo 4 (Agreed, great reboot.)
Best PS3 Game Journey (Hell to the yes, Journey deserved this 100%)
Best Wii/Wii U Game New Super Mario Bros. U (I thought ZombiU brought more to the table but Mario will always have a place in Nintendo fan’s hearts.)
Best PC Game XCOM: Enemy Unknown (Diablo III got R O B B E D)
Best Shooter Borderlands 2 (Halo 4 was better but Borderlands 2 is a multi-plat game.)
