The 2010 Video Game Awards
That’s the 2010 Video Game Awards. Yes, this post has been long overdue, but to hell with that. This is my first (
not really) post about gaming, so shut the f**k up.
First off, let’s start with the host of this shindig. Neil Patrick Harris. Yes. Yeah, I still can’t believe that the dude who played as the legen-fuckin’-dary Barney Stinson, is gay. But I have so much respect for that guy. And much respect for him trying to cheer a bunch of game devs up in that event. They were all quiet, and just a few would get some of his jokes. (I got them, trust me)
Anyway, i’ll just summarize & criticize some of the winners in the awards show. Let’s start with this.
Best Handheld Game :
- God of War: Ghost of Sparta (winner)
- Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
- Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
- Super Scribblenauts
First, I can’t remember playing this GoW game in my PSP (I can only remember playing Chains of Olympus, completing it under 15 hours), so i’m protesting for this category. MGS: PW should’ve won. Not only it kicks ass when played in Multiplayer mode, but the storyline was so dragging, I didn’t do my chores for a week. 2 weeks even. So i don’t know. Maybe I should just play Ghost of Sparta.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops (winner)
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2
- BioShock 2
- Halo: Reach
I had a strong feeling that CoD would win this category but this is just too stacked. I’m torn between the 3 other nominees. BioShock 2 was an innovative shooter game. It was a fun game. Halo: Reach, well, let’s just say the party isn’t complete with Halo.
Game of the Year
- Red Dead Redemption (winner)
- Call of Duty: Black Ops
- God of War III
- Halo: Reach
- Mass Effect 2
I had a good feeling that Mass Effect 2 would win, based on what my friend who finished the game relayed to me. He even recommended it to me. It’s just that my fuckin’ DVD ROM isn’t functioning. Ugh. I just wish I could play it. While Red Dead Redemption winning the most awards in this event, I still want to try this game out. Try to see if it’s worthy of all the recognition. I hope it is.
Oh yeah, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim this November 2011, biiiitcheees.
