Spike’s Video Game Award 2010 Winners | PS3Blog.net


Neil Patrick Harris hosted the 2010 Video Game Awards last night on Spike TV. The show was exciting, for me anyway, mainly because of the many game trailers they premiered at the show. I was however surprised and disappointed by a few of the winners.

Game of the Year, went to the much deserved Red Dead Redemption, beating out the most nominated game Mass Effect 2, Halo: Reach, God of War III, and Call of Duty: Black Ops . Red Dead Redemption itself had nine nominations, including Best PS3 Game, Best Action Adventure Game, Best Graphics and Best Original Score.

A new category this year was the Character of the Year, with the win going to Sgt. Frank Woods of Call of Duty: Black Ops. How he beat out John Marston, from Red Dead Redemption is beyond me. He even beat out Kratos!

Best PS3 Game went to God of War III, which also won for Best Graphics. The other nominees for Best PS3 Game were Heavy Rain, ModNation Racers, and Red Dead Redemption, the only non-exclusive in the list.

What do you think? Were your picks chosen?

The full list of nominations and winners can be found after the jump.

  1. Anyone else find it funny that the xbox’s 360 best game will soon be a playstation 3 game?

  2. It’s interesting. Just like how all of our exclusives have gone over to Xbox, such as: Final Fantasy, Devil May Cry, Assassins Creed. Even Tekken is available on 360.

  3. derrickgott007

    I don’t understand how a game can come out and then be a winner for game of the year within one month. I bet that’s why they rushed CODBLOPS to market with so many bugs…

  4. derrickgott007

    @SKOTT

    It’s because Microsoft pays huge amounts of money for exclusivity and huges amounts of money to woo prospective developers to their platform.. Sony doesnt do that, and we suffer because of it. Every game that comes out multiplatform, the ps3 version has been lacking compared to the 360….

    It’s a shame. They keep doing this and I’ll jump ship.

  5. Thought anyone but Woods should be Character of the Year, IMO, really glad Red Dead Redemption won, and when Jose performed his song. whoa that took me back. i’m definitely replaying that campaign. and yeah i was actually gonna bite the bullet and get a xbox if ME3 was an exclusive. but good thing it isnt. hahaaha

  6. COD: Black Ops didnt win game of the year. That was RDR.

    Overall, it was mostly a disappointment. BFBC2 should have won at least Best Multiplayer (though I would also say best shooter)

    At least we got a bunch of new trailers in between all the BS.

  7. xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux

    Man i was upset yesterday i expected a lil more and some games didnt even deserve some awards and um like R3 trailer could have been better. Im crying about it right now and well 360 stole our games now ps3 is taking theres.

  8. Show was definately dissapointing to me as well, but the trailers were all pretty good for the most part, and Munn… 🙂

  9. I enjoyed the show, especially NPH’s video game porn names XD. Good trailers, excited for a lot. Sucks that its all Q4 of next year. At least Q1 has some great games.

  10. xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux

    Well, trailers were all great, I felt that they could have done alil more for the Resistance 3 trailer, I think I was expecting more gameplay from so i think I was upset otherwise it would have been good. I wasn’t expecting anything of the U3 one though I was happy with what they showed. And other games were good. I jizzed my pants when I saw Kratos lol. EPIC. And well yea and the commedy was kinda eh. NPH did a good job honestly ecsepially with the World round boner. “I WANT 1” lol dudes great. But yea It could have been so much better. And I am going to be completely honest I was not really all impressed with 2010’s game selection. On Playstation Exclusives it was good. But like I mean all the multiplats were eh. Few were great like BC2, NFS Hot Pursuit, RDR, FF13. But Idk 2011 looks great. And the most Anticepated game should have gone to Arkam City. It looks amazing from what they showed. And thank god its not like only going to revolve around Joker, Strange is boss and crazy Loving it. Then we have Killzone 3, Resistance 3(need to see some actual full legnth gameplay and more on multiplayer), Uncharted 3 (Already Game of the Year), MC9, MvsC3, NFS shift, DeadSpace2, GearsofWar3, TekkenTT2, DMC. I hope I can get all of them.

  11. @xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux wow wordy are you?? See. u can write a post.. lol just clean that up a bit and your good to go!
    “And thank god its not like only going to revolve around Joker, Strange is boss and crazy Loving it.”
    My point exactly.. see the Batman trailer post!

  12. xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux

    My bad Oly, when you say clean it up you mean with puncuation, and or just posting by topics. of the post?

  13. kennygk

    I think he just means that there are a few spelling errors, but other than that, this could be a post

  14. @xDeFcoN_2FasT4Ux No bad man!! Lol it’s all good. I wasn’t talking about posting a comment, I was saying that you wrote soo much, you could write an actual blog post.. as one of us co-writers. Just some grammer changes.. and a little editing and you could make a Spike GVA commentary post! 😎

    Congrats to RDR for winning GOTY. It truely deserved that award hands down. Im playin through ME2 rite now so i dnt know how good the game is yet(jus bought it last nite). RDR was definitly IMO the best game of 2010. Now looking foward to 2011 where Sony will be blasting with exlusive after exclusive. Just for fun my early prediction for GOTY is between The Last Gaurdian or Uncharted 3.

  16. Royalty32

    Just wondering what was Sonys BIG annoucmnet?????

  17. Sony’s surprise was uncharted 3. Rdr definitely deserved the win. Good picks overall

  18. Darrin: Sony’s surprise was uncharted 3. Rdr definitely deserved the win. Good picks overall  

    Should see more tonight on Jimmy Fallon 12:35 AM EST.

  19. Royalty32

    @Darrin was that really a surprise though when everybody knew about it before the VGA’s. To be fair i didnt think GOW3 should of won best ps3 game. Dont get me wrong it was an AMAZING and BEATIFUL game but what Heavy Rain delivered is an experience like no other. Not to mention that the graphics were close if not better than GOW3.

  20. Royalty32

    @eddie i live indianapolis. Im tyrin to catch the Jimmy Fallon as well wat time and what channel. I have comcast.

  21. couldn’t tell you royalty. I assume you are on central time so 11:35PM but as to what channel….no idea.

  22. My only gripe was that Frank Woods was picked as character of the year. WTF, are you serious!? I’m just really happy and a little surprised that Black Ops didn’t get Best Multiplayer Game. I would have been pissed if they did but only because of how jacked up its been for us since it was released.

  23. @Royalty32 Jimmy Fallon is on NBC so right after Jay Leno

  24. Royalty32

    Thanx Oly. UC3 is prolly my most anticipated game of 2011. I have to admit im kinda looking foward to Infamous 2 a lil bit more. Dnt kno why but its something about that game i think is gonna shock alot of ppl.

  25. I liked the Show
