What kind of category is “Most Anticipated Game”?

The Spike TV Video Game Awards (VGAs) aren’t taken entirely too seriously by the video game industry.  Its not much surprise for why when you see something like this.  I guess this category is analogous with such prestigious categories as “Most Hype” or “Spent Most in Marketing”.  Hit the jump for more.

Even better is that you can go there right now to vote!  Nominees include notably non-existent games:

  • Bioshock: Infinite
  • Diablo III
  • Halo 4
  • Mass Effect 3
  • The Last Guardian
Also notice the lack of original titles, all of these are sequels in some way, shape or form (yea even The Last Guardian).

So what happens when the winner inevitably gets pushed back to 2013?  Does Spike revoke the winner’s weird monkey trophy?  Do they get to enter again next year?  Who knows/cares, this is the stupidest award I’ve ever seen.

About Ryan Saul

Hailing from Portland, OR I work by day and blog by night. I like to consider myself a video game connoisseur, playing as many new things as I can get my hands on. Its hard to hold me down to one game for very long before I move on to the next big thing. Luckily, that works pretty well in terms of video game blogging.
