Spike 2008 Video Game Awards Results

Last night Spike TV aired their annual Video Game Awards show, an incredibly ridiculous show which featured tons of gorgeous women, a few bands, and a fat guy on a Segway. Doesn't sound too bad on paper, but if you watched the show you know what I'm talking about.

The game of the year went to Grand Theft Auto IV, while Studio of the Year went to Media Molecule, the force behind PS3 exclusive LittleBigPlanet. I generally agree with most of the winners, but I would have definitely put Brawl above Soul Calibur IV for best fighting game. Here's the full list of award winners.

  1. As good as they may be, I should've never bought any of these games at full price. I am and always will be an impulse buyer.
