Just like people still buy Call of Duty games, people still watch the VGA awards and think they have any real meaning. Spike doesn't have a clue

Both Batman and Gears 3 had the best SP of any game that came out this year. IMO, they should have won. But like someone else said, it's Spike and these awards don't mean anything.

Noticed how no one cheered for BF3? /trollingforfun

It wasn't the most buggy game of the year. Stop being a drama queen. The game was fine. Gamers cry too much over little stuff. It was the best game of the year period.

You are just butthurt cuz your game didn't win. Game of the year means EVERYTHING. If you don't win game of the year it means your game was crap!

I didn't think some of the nominees were all that great to begin with. You can see who was actually nominated to the category here:
