Spike VGA’s 2011: Are you excited?


The Spike VGA’s  are tomorrow, Red Dead Redemption has one  more day to walk with the crown, and you’re excited right? Errrrrr! (record skip) wait — are you excited?

Look, I’ve heard everything from frustration about the bias at these shows, to the horrible presentation, ( I personally thought last year they stepped it up though, presentation wise) to the horrible hosting.  Then it reaches to the other end of the spectrum where people are generally excited even if it’s just strictly about world premieres and not the award winners themselves.

However it just seems like the  general consensus is, every year Geoff Keighley builds up the “hype train” only for the show to let down there audience when it goes live. Just last year I thought I was going to be treated to Resident Evil 6, Metal Gear Solid 5, and Uncharted 3 — courtesy of that “hype train” and you see how that turned out, I went 0-3. And now that I think about it, there’s not as much noise and buzz surrounding this one as previous ones and I’m not exactly sure why? I don’t know if people are tired of giving  the show a chance, or if Spike and GT didn’t go as hard to promote and advertise like in the previous years, or the games are simply not there to get excited about. The only game that seems to be getting any legitimate buzz is the PS3 exclusive “The Last of Us” ( I wonder if they got that idea from Console ControllUs…lol). Outside of that it seems pretty dead. Do you think Spike and GT are playing possum and have a huge “bomb” on their hands, or will it be another award show letdown?

I know it may be a far-fetched question to ask and expect any sort of  positive response, but I’ll ask anyway, are-you-excited? Hey you never know someone out there might be. CCwants to hear from you.

  1. I can’t wait to see it! I hope Portal 2 wins something, cause that was the funniest game I’ve ever played. I also hope Rage wins something, cause I couldn’t believe how amazing the game looked!

    I’m also excited for the Trailers and whatnot. I wanna see the new Alan Wake, Bioshock Infinite, etc. I’ll enjoy this!
