Re: Spike TV VGA Nominations Announced

I'm surprised that Star Wars: The Old Republic isn't in there under Most Anticipated.

Re: Spike TV VGA Nominations Announced

Skyward Sword doesn't belong on any list because someone gave it a 7.5 which means it is the worst game of the year.   At least, that is what the internet rage is saying.

Re: Spike TV VGA Nominations Announced

Game of the Year: Where Spike only focuses on the last 3 months and that the rest of the year is meaningless.
