2009 VGA’s Winners


Most of us tuned into to watch the VGA’s last night on Spike, not only to see the what the people voted Game of the Year, but to see previews of some of the hot new titles for 2010.  Spike delivered as far as previews go and I don’t think anyone will deny that even if you did not like the choice for Game of the Year or any of the other awards that where handed out the award show was anything but dull.  This year the event was to do something a little different and not have a host, wise choice on Spike’s part as they had a star studded line-up handing out awards.  So for those that did not get to see the award show here is a list of the winners:

  • Best Voice in a Video Game: Jack Black as Eddie Riggs in Brutal Legend
  • Best Cast: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
  • Best Performance by a Human Male: Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine

  • Best Handheld Game: GTA: Chinatown Wars

  • Most Anticipated Game: God of War 3
  • Game of the Year: Uncharted 2

Not really surprised with any of the winners, though I would have liked to see Killzone 2 get some award, as I thought it was a great game.  Now for previews, I will not go into each one as I know by now you have viewed your favorite one over and over again, but I must add one of my favorite trailers on a game that I can’t wait to not only play but to see how the story will play out.

For a look at the games headed our way be sure to go check out Spike for a look at all the trailers featured in last night shows.
