Spike’s Video Game Award 2010 Winners


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.
