Yes, Spike’s Video Game Awards are pretty much the worst thing ever… but if they have one redeeming quality it’s that they result in these cool “Best Character of the Year” nominee videos getting made!
Also goddamn I hate working with YouTube sometimes, sorry for the ” target=”_blank”>embedding problems.

    Eh, what's that? Random numbers in a Valve video? THIS COULD ONLY MEAN ONE THING

  2. Shawn Handyside on December 17th, 2011 3:25 am

    One, one, one, one… and, uh….. ONE!

    It's about time somebody extracted those. I was getting rather tired of providing Spike with traffic. Thank goodness I don't have any other reason to watch their network anymore.

    I felt like I was actually in a shop in Hyrule. So many choices, should I get the bomb ( The Joker), arrows (Nathan Drake), a deku nut (Wheatley, get it? Because he's a nut! Also I always thought deku nuts looked like eyeballs), or maybe, oooh, the Hylian shield (Marcus Pheonix).

    So wait, if Joker won character of the year, would he have to shoot himself?

    Scumbag VGAs: Have actors voice extra content for you, put them up in bleachers and skip their category entirely.

    I'm sad Portal 2 won over Minecraft in best PC Game :(

    I would agree but MW3 didn't get that 5% better graphics part that you were talking about.

  16. Alpar on December 17th, 2011 9:08 am

    You sir are forever a winner.

    Have my babies and some cookies in honor of the laughter and joy you have given me this morning.

    Nathan Drake and Marcus Fenix were in the category for Best Character of the Year?

    Speaking as a die-hard Gears fan, that SMUG RACIST DOUCHE and that NEANDERTHAL should have never gotten near that category! I mean, I knew the Spike VGA's were bad (it is Viacom after all) but FFS guys, now you're just taunting us with the fact that you can pick and we cant. And the Joker, as much as I love him, isnt a game character, he's a comic character! Kefka should have gotten in instead if they insisted on having a mad clown. And they better just be nicking that "Arkham World" joke from Yahtzee otherwise that is the sign of a franchise being milked.

    Battlefield 3?

    I played both. They both didn't go as far as they could. So fanboys on either side suck it up and deal with it.

  20. Drjolt on December 17th, 2011 11:35 am

    I didn't know drake was related to Bear Gylls.

  21. Skrist on December 17th, 2011 11:48 am

    I have an idea to kill Spike's VGAs. Everyone has to do this or it simply will NOT work.
    Next year, when it comes on, either no one go, or whoever does go, JUST… LEAVE!

  22. Rathial on December 17th, 2011 1:48 pm

    ugh some of these winners are just shocking in an "oh my god how were they even nominated let alone how did they win" kind of way D:

  23. BTSnoogans on December 17th, 2011 6:36 pm

    I'm giving you a virtual hug for this post.

  24. CriticalQuit on December 17th, 2011 6:52 pm

    Skyrim may have won Game of the Year and Portal 2 may have won 5 awards…

    but Wheatley didn't win best character.

    Let's see if we can borrow some of GLaDOS' neurotoxin.
