Thanks to Toney and alex, who had plans to crash the ceremony but got caught up playing Skyrim.

There are Comments.
  • Interesting that 360 got Arkham Asylum (multiplatform) as its best game yet PS3 won with Uncharted 3 (ps3 exclusive)...

  • How could Skyrim be game of the year when it isn't best pc game, ps3 game or xbox game??

  • Ragnogroth

    I feel a lot of BF3 hate :)

  • this dude is the man, but he should spend some coins on cleaning those teeth

  • What happened to best music game?

  • This might be worse then the MTV movie awards... uncharted best graphics? no ps3 games graphic are superior to PC.. battlefield for life! and personally think saints row the third is better then portal 2... i hate these award shows .. FAIL

  • Matthew Brasfield

    Best graphics to a console game?  Hah!  Fools...

  • COD MW3 was best shooter?  C'mon, tell me this isn't rigged.  Various only polls show that BF3 is the preferred game among gamers.

    Also, Blizzard is a gaming god? Blah. They just wait 10 years to do sequels so you don't remember their games, then they can re-make the same game over and over.

  • MightyMolecule

    ...who votes on that shit. bizarre choices abound. nevertheless, Shigeru Miyamoto was canned...

  • frank garcia

    Ummm. Mortal Kombat as best fighter?! Well i guess if best you mean unbalanced, slow and very unresponive controll then yes its the best, lest not think of Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition v.2012, King of Fighters XIII, or Tekken 6, you know the ones that are worked on and polished a fine shine. I know street fighter has a stupid long name and a updates all the time but there is a reason for its, the fix it and listen to fan input to make the best fighter there is, mortal kombat....... not so much ok I am done

  • Disagree with the vast majority of this, with the exception of Minecraft and Skyrim pretty much, and would put Star Wars The Old Republic in most anticipated joint with ME3. BF3 is far superior to MW3 in every possible way, anyone who disagrees is bias and/or 12.

  • Where the fuck is Battlefield 3? ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS? Call of Duty got shooter of the year? FUCK SPIKE TV, they run ads for COD all fucking day, paid off scumbags, they're the reason our gaming industry is full of shitheads and impressionable casual gamers. 

  • Where's gears of war 3?

  • Guest

    I'm sorry, but really?

    Perhaps these are the only games that companies would send them for free?... 'cause although most of those are at least okay... few of them are actually worthy of the awards they've gained.

  • Hal Jordan

    Awwww...... no love for "Star Ruler"?

  • I caught part of this show on Saturday night. If Jason Biggs and Sean William Scott's delivery of the "Gamer God Award" was any indication, then the awards ceremony was pretty painful. Granted, I only saw their particularly wooden teleprompter delivery.

  • The Dead Island trailer didn't win any recognition? I mean, I know the game was disappointing, but that reverse-flow trailer rivaled most efforts from Hollywood.

  • Didn't Bastion win best Indie game? Not Minecraft?

  • TheLonelyBrit

    You've got to be fair, at the start of the year Minecarft was at just over 1 million copies sold and now its at over 4.3 million with over 18 million registered people and it's still going up. I will say though that I myself have never played Bastion, even though I've heard from several sources that it is a very good game, so I have no way of comparing it to Minecraft. But with just over 1 million to 4.3 million sold copies from an independent company is pretty impressive.

  • Adam Curtz

    Best Shooter: MW3?

    Oh.. okay... :/
