This is like, his 4th time doing it or something.

#4 Posted by FinalDasa (1451 posts) -

Least there is some voice of reason at the VGAs.

He's been part of it for a long time.

As normal! I think it is a good thing to happen though, lots of deliberation between journalists that don't get to meet often.

Why isn't Jim Sterling on this list? For shame!

Oh you.

#9 Posted by alternate (2679 posts) -

He is the Grand High Wizard of the VGA council (Bay Area Chapter).

Wait ... that might be something else.

He's the most respected journalist around, the fans love him...I can't fathom why he's not on the list!

#11 Posted by alternate (2679 posts) -

Actually reading down the list it is the usual suspects and then. Who did these two pay/blow to get on the list. :D

Scott Alexander (Freelance Writer, Playboy & Family Circle)
Tina Amini (Assistant Editor / Video Games Channel Manager, Complex Magazine)

The VGA's are presented as the MTV movie awards when they should be treated like Golden Globes

#13 Posted by JoeyRavn (4945 posts) -

Our Jeff is the Gerstmann or the Jensen? Or is that Adam? Adam Gerstmann?

Man, this videogames stuff is confusing.

#14 Posted by Agent47 (1894 posts) -

@Dany:Exactly I think it would be far more respected if they were actually judged on their content not 'OMGZ DE MW3 IZ ALL IS I PLAYZ!".

#15 Posted by CptBedlam (4449 posts) -

That list needs more Sessler.

#16 Posted by Dallas_Raines (2130 posts) -

Scott Alexander writes for Playboy and Family Circle? That's amusing.

Sterling is an honest reviewer, there, I said it.

Jeff said all he does for the VGAs is fill out a vote card and mail it back.
it's nothing fancy.

#20 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8060 posts) -

cool.

#21 Posted by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

OK.

#22 Posted by bwmcmaste (837 posts) -

Jeff is the only person on that list that I recognize. Then again, GB is the only videogame-related website that exists, so I can be excused for my ignorance of this immense list of nobodies.

Best VGA Advisory Council member powered by Mountain Dew Skylanders

#24 Posted by weaponofchoice (31 posts) -

Seriously, why is Adam Sessler not there, or anyone from G4? I'm not a huge G4 fan personally but I think someone from them should be on the judges list.

Yes, skylanders for GOTY!
#26 Posted by MasturbatingestBear (1188 posts) -

I agree with the people. Adam Sessler needs to get up in this bitch.

#27 Posted by RobertOrri (1118 posts) -

I'd like to see Adam Sessler and Ben Kuchera on there, among others, but who cares about this VGA crap anyways? It's just meant to sell you products, not to actually reward creativity or accomplishments.

#28 Posted by Chris2KLee (2328 posts) -

Yep, he's been doing this pretty much from the start. Not much too it really, and the votes are kinda meaningless when you consider some awards are probably locked in months in advance for certain games.

I'm not a fan of G4TV, but I am a huge fan of Adam Sessler. I may not always agree with him but he normally makes great arguments and puts out a lot of great comments and thoughts in regards to the industry of video games. The lack of Adam Sessler on that list is disappointing. Having both Jeff and Adam on that list would give the Video Game Awards a lot more credibility in my opinion. So far their nominees and winners seem to be based around money, hype, and popularity rather than actual quality. The come off more as an advertisement rather than a celebration. I also detest the way the Video Game Awards presents people who play video games and the industry, and the forced celebrities that have nothing to do with video games or no interest in them being on that show is cringe worthy and down right pathetic. I think if the Video Game Awards gets it shit together though it could be great.

I like how they call it a council, to try and make it seem classy or something.

#31 Posted by coakroach (2486 posts) -

Trackmania for GOTY.

Calling it.

Its probably a laminated fancy card, seeing as these are always rigged anyways.

#33 Posted by keris (165 posts) -

I find it interesting that both the Penny Arcade guys are on the list.

#34 Posted by clumsyninja1 (817 posts) -

Wait a minute...the Jersey Shore cast is not on the list...CURSE YOU VGA's

Ignore the awards, watch the trailers. It is like a non-sports fan watching the Superbowl for the half time commercials.

None of the other people present shows on a rival TV network. NBC and Viacom are not friends.

Always be rooting for Jeff.

Which is what is worrying. I totally believe he writes honestly, but if he believes what he writes it just proves he is insane.

#40 Posted by Brendan (7663 posts) -

Am I crazy, or did I see someone from the official Xbox magazine, official Nintendo magazine, and an as-official-as-it-gets PC magazine, but no Playstation mag on the council list?

#41 Posted by phrosnite (3518 posts) -

Of course he is.

This, and Garnett Lee.

I hope he votes Trackmania for every category.

One thing that always bugged me about award shows.  How come it feels like there is a different Country Music award show every month yet no award show for Rock n' Roll?
I guess Country Stars are very insecure and need constant praise or they will commit mass suicide.  Another theory is  you don't need an award to rock someones motherfucking socks off.  
  
Didn't the VGAs just  turn into a run of the mill award show that the public only really watches to see trailers of new games?  I remember last year it was all about the big reveals and teaser trailers.  Hell I can't even remember who hosted last years VGA's.  I just assume Jack Black because he seems to do a lot of this shit.

#47 Posted by SpacePenguin (473 posts) -

Well he was for the last few years so its not really a surprise.

Jeff is the voice of madness inside of a dumb award ceremony.

I'll wait for the SVGAs
