    To me it just seemed like they put no thought into any of the selection of winners in most categories, espcially Game of the year.

    I would think Game of year would of came down to Halo 3, Super Mario Galaxy, and COD4, and then maybe just maybe Bioshock, but instead...................................... Galaxy nor COD4 is even candidates for the award and it goes to Bioshock.

    I been knowing this about the VGA, but it proves again you cant take these seriously if they put no thought or thinking into these awards.

    Galaxy was the obvious GotY. Anyway, Spike TV's VGA has always been a joke as far as I remember.

    The show was and still is a complete waste of time and money. I don't think the public even gets to vote in it.

    I've never even hard of these awards, but if Galaxy and CoD4 didn't even make nomination for Game of the Year and Bioshock won, then I'm taking your word for it being a complete and total waste of time and money.

    The very first award show a few years back proved this wasn't a true award show to begin with.

    I watched about 5 minutes of it. One time I watched almost the entire thing. It really is horrible, and I think most people realize it. It is loaded with crude humor that is irrelevant to the subject of video games. It is just not a serious award show, and I personally don't think they put much thought into their nominations and awards. I remember the year I watched, King Kong took like all of the awards!

    Besides, doesn't G4 do a VGA already? Actually, I don't know, and I'm not even sure how that's relevant to the conversation, I was just curious.

    I'd put more stock in the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards (same parent company, I believe) than anything on Spike.

    Yes they do and the viewers decide the winners not the network, so its more of a representation of the viewers opinion.

    I used to watch it just for MXC, but since they don't show it anymore I don't watch the network.

    i stopped caring about the "vga's" when they gave best fighting game of the year to wwe smackdown or w/e a few years ago, rather than SOUL CALIBER. lame.

    I also think that the Spike VGA is garbage.

    But Bioshock is definately one of the best games of the year, I think even more so than Halo 3 (barely) and Super Mario Galaxy (which I still don't like as much as SM64). I haven't played COD4, but considering they make a COD game just about every year, I just don't think of their quality as high in general.

    cod4 is truly a masterpiece. mind you that this is the true "call of duty 3" because infinity ward didn't make the actual call of duty 3.

    I haven't played COD4, but from what my uncle told me and from what I saw in the E3 demo, it is AWESOMESAUCE and is so deserving of the number one game of the year, if not at least first runner-up.

    Who gives "Best Fighting Game" to a wrestling game? Wrestling isn't even fighting (or a sport for that matter) because it's all fixed. (Coming soon: True WWE Smackdown! Where you win as long as you're loved.) How can WWE beat out Soul Caliber. This is madness! (and if anyone references 300 they will face the wrath of my icy stare)

    Bioshock deserved game of the year by far,it was in development for at least 2 years and has an excellent storymode,AI,and its replay-ability value is quite high,as it gives you the option of different ways to specialize yourself and different choices can be made.

    Anyone who says "X" deserved it more has never played Bioshock or doesn't know what makes a great game.

    Spike is good only for Trek, and nothing else.
