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

All we need now is Ben "Yahtzee" Crenshaw on the list too....

Call of Duty will still win every award*.
 
The VGAs are a fucking joke. They're everything that's wrong with gaming culture - fuck it, culture in general.
 
*Awards sponsored by Mountain Dew - Do the Dew this holiday with specially marked cases of Mountain Dew - every label is a winner!

Judge.

For those who haven't bothered to read Alex's article, it's worth noting that MW3 is not even nominated for Game of the Year. Their 5 nominees are Portal 2, Skyrim, Arkham City, Skyward Sword, and Uncharted 3. I think they're working to fix their image a little bit here, to be honest, though it'd be a boldfaced lie to tell you they've won any confidence from me.

There's a number of reputable journalists on that council list. It's unfortunate that the number of them is at best a third of the council, while the rest are entirely ill-equipped to really seriously weigh these games against each other in terms of anything other than "which was the most fun/awesome?"

One credible source can not save a paid for advertisement showcase.

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)

I especially love that Scott Alexander there is a freelance writer for Playboy and...Family Circle. What a weird fucking combination.

@DarkGamerOO7: Your right. Remember Neil Patrick Harris being the host and then winning the best Voice Acting award? I wasn't even upset, it was like how they gave him the award. It had that "we're just giving this away" kinda feel. He even made a joke about it if I remember.

@alternate: I was kinda thinking that, it's a shame it has to come to that. There's two guys from Wired, one of those could've been Adam!

Least there is some voice of reason at the VGAs.

Yeah that voice of reason that never even bothered playing Red Dead Redemption and won't give games like Dark Souls a second look. Super unbiased!

Because his critique would prove inconvenient for MW3, BF3, Gears 3 and other AAA titles released in 2011.

Jeff, along with many people, didn't like how boring RDR was. He's also a pretty busy person but god forbid that he should not like Dark Souls!

@Stingraymond: I said reason not unbiased. Everyone has games they love too much or dislike for no reason, its a part of being human.

@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!".

i think he meant having a host that rips everyone to shreds
