    The VGA is the definition of retarded. You have douchbag actors presenting videogames, I’m sorry but I don’t even think Danny Devito has any fucking idea what a videogame is. Imagine if the Oscars were hosted by videogame developers what sense would that make? Fuck Spike TV and fuck the VGA’s, the results are flawed anyways because you had to go onto the Spike website and vote for the winners there and honestly who did that? Some fucking kid who beats off to Black Ops? Come on you know that true videogame fans don’t give a shit about these award shows and the only reason to watch them is to see the new games being announced. Too bad the people announcing them do such a bad job that you’re sitting in your living room praying that they get decapitated before they say another word. In conclusion the VGA was a big waste of time and just another marketing tool used by corporate (I’m not clever enough to think of a better insult)to push advertising on people and promote joining the US army. Fuck what a disgrace to videogames.
