With all the announcements, trailers and celebrity endorsements at the Video Game Awards, it’s easy to forget that it’s actually an awards ceremony. Actually, it’s especially easy to forget – because it seems as the years have gone on, the awards have taken a complete backseat to the PR shenanigans; so much so that the actuals awards bit wasn’t even televised. That’s right – there were hardly any awards handed out at the Video Game Awards; that mostly happened pre show. Really, the Spike VGA’s have become nothing more than a showcase for new games – and sexy trailers of games we already knew about.

I’m not here to moan about the VGA’s though (I’ll leave that to you), but rather to let you know who won awards.  You’ll find the full list of winners after the jump.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
