Like any good nerd, I ended up watching Spike TV’s Video Game Awards (air date: 12-11-2009). For those of you who are unaware of this geek-driven event, the VGA’s have been around since 2003. A panel of judges nominate the best PC-, Console-, and Handheld-based games of 28 categories, and the winners are then determined by online polling.

Here are some of the notable winners:

  • Game of the Year: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  • Studio of the Year: Rocksteady Studios
  • Best Xbox 360 Game: Left 4 Dead 2
  • Best PS3 Game: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  • Best Wii Game: New Super Mario Bros. Wii
  • Best PC Game: Dragon Age: Origins
  • Best Handheld Game: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
  • For a complete list, visit Spike TV

Aside from seeing who wins what, I love watching the awards for the world premiere’s and teasers of upcoming titles. Here are few things that I am definitely excited about:

Halo: Reach

This game is based off a sci-fi book written by Eric Nylund called, “Halo: The Fall of Reach.” It gives further insight into the Halo universe and explains the origins of the beloved ‘Spartans’ and the infamous ‘Master Chief’.


Tron: Legacy (Movie)

The original movie broke barriers with its computer animated backgrounds and sequences. The new CGI version, slated for a 2010 release, looks amazing! It’ll be interesting to see where they take the story line.


Stars Wars: Force Unleashed 2

The first one put the power of the ‘force’ in your hands and was well-liked by many.


What were your favorite premieres? Did you disagree with any of the winners?
