Without the presence of nearly nude dancing girls jumping up and down, rap music every 5 minutes, and the nominations of all the games that came out between November and December, how will I know this is a gaming awards?

Wait, you mean that thing on SpikeTV was a gaming award show? I thought it was one of those reality shows, and they were playing a prank on Snoop Dogg.

Don't worry. Stevie Case will probably be there trying to get under the table for Peter Molyneux so she can become president of Lionhead.

Close, but you also have to pretty much completely ignore entire genres, consoles and all but eliminate the PC from contention in order to have a Spike TV awards show. Oh and you still have to find a way to ignore awesomeness like Ninja Gaiden.

Gots to make room for dah snoop dog rapping over some motley crue yo.

For every applicable category !

I Love Bees (4, Interesting)

inio (26835) | more than 9 years ago | (#11259255)

I hope someone nominates I Love Bees. It was a fun and very innovative game, worthy of this type of recognition.

This is ok, (1)

I really hate awards, but this gaming awards ceremony is actually held by the Game Dev community and is not "shizzled" and does not include games that happen to look "pretty".
