So SpikeTV announced it's VGA nominees for 2012...

This is a discussion on So SpikeTV announced it's VGA nominees for 2012... within the General PS3 Discussion forum, part of the Everything PlayStation; Kinda shocked that nobody made a thread about this yet, since social media has gone a bit crazy with it ...

    So SpikeTV announced it's VGA nominees for 2012...

    Kinda shocked that nobody made a thread about this yet, since social media has gone a bit crazy with it (particularly the game studios and their own individual accounts themselves). I know it isn't the most likable of award shows for most people, but it is the most commercially present one and the one that the media in general seems to value heaviest in the last few years.

    Here's the link to the site, where you can vote if you want and check out the nominations (which I won't list in full here because there are too many categories to list). : Game of the Year | Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, Journey, Mass Effect 3, The Walking Dead: The Game | Video Game Awards 2012

    Kind of surprised by the amount of love that the indie games are getting (particularly The Walking Dead and Journey). I probably would have personally swapped out Mass Effect 3 with Borderlands 2 for the GOTY list, but other than that and a game or two here and there I agree a lot with the list. Really hope Melissa Hutchinson wins best performance by a human female for her role as Clementine in The Walking Dead (who's one of my favorite video game characters of this generation) most of all the nominations.

    Does anybody else enjoy looking at these lists? Or are the VGAs mainly watchable only for their exclusive trailers and reveals? (which normally that's what I am there for.)

    Wow Journey and Walking Dead for GOTY, that's pretty cool.

    I joked back in spring about Journey getting a GOTY nomination and everyone laughed, they all thought it would get best Downloadable, but who is laughing now

    Kind of funny that Walking Dead is considered a better game than Halo 4 though, that must piss Xbox fans off

    Oh yeah, get on twitter and search Halo 4 and VGAs for some good ol' fashion fanboy raging.

    Journey deserves GOTY more than anything else. It was amazing, and is perhaps the most innovative game this year. It's definitely the most Innovative nominee on the list. All the other games are just sequels that hardly changed from the previous game(Borderlands 2). Also, it is kind of surprising to see The Walking Dead on there though.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    I just voted in the sports game category because all the other games I haven't played yet, or I don't care too much about.

    While I do like the nominations, I just went over to vote and it keeps giving me an error, I have to vote like 8 times for it to not give me an error and actually register >_<. Anyways I found myself voting for Walking Dead basically every time I could lol.

    I agree with most of the GOTY nominees, but I too would switch out ME3 for Borderlands 2, not that I didn't like ME3 but BL2 was a better game. I really hope Melissa Hutchinson wins too!

    I disagree with Walking Dead being on that list. It's just a whole lot of hype.

    You can't put that in the same category with the other nominees. ACIII all the way!

    Hope AC3 or Dishonored win GOTY, both are amazing games. I got a chance to play them at a friends house, awesome games. I just don't have the money at the moment to purchase them.

    What I find funny as well is that for Handheld Vita has 3 nominees and 3ds only has one, yet people keep crying that Vita doesn't have any games

    Pretty much a worthless show, as I remember Enter the Matrix winning a bunch of stuff, but props to them for including Journey and Walking Dead. Haven't played either one yet but they are both completely unexpected.

    Shocked you mentioned the consoles and not the handhelds...oh wait I'm not because then you would have to admit that the 3ds got completely ignored.

    Keep on trolling Troll

    ^ Nutshell.

    Spike's relevance to gaming is laughable, at best. I'm more surprised anyone gives a shit this year, especially seeing the small range of games to choose from.

    ^This. I really would like to see Journey get some recognition at that event.
