I'll just wait and watch the trailers online...

#5 Posted by freedomfreak (44943 posts) -
Yeah, gonna wait until the trailers I'm interested in, are available. I watched it once and it was painful.
#6 Posted by Heil68 (48743 posts) -
 Seriously, have never watched one and dont plan on it.

That is what I am doing. I will wait a hour or two after the show and then head to Gametrailers.

#8 Posted by Crazyguy105 (9513 posts) -

I might watch it to see how terrible and cringeworthy it is this year, but I probably won't to avoid giving any money to Spike.

#9 Posted by jdc6305 (4110 posts) -

I'm not sitting through an hour of commercials just to see 10 minutes worth of trailers. I'll wait for them to hit the web.

#10 Posted by Wiimotefan (4145 posts) -

This is the one event every year where all System Warriors come together and bash the greater enemy. And for good reason.

#11 Posted by Yangire (8795 posts) -

Going to watch it to see how low they can go.

#12 Posted by CanYouDiglt (7640 posts) -

You know if they made it more for gamers then maybe I would watch. Sam Jackson is hosting for example but what does he have to do with games? They will have people give awards like the cast of Glee but they should have developers do it. Also normally that award show talks down to gamers.

#13 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (3286 posts) -
I'll watch the Lakers vs Thunder instead. Don't want to see Doritos and Mountain Dew commercials. Also Geoff Keighly is a b!tch.
#14 Posted by Thefatness16 (4672 posts) -

VGA's are an abomination, ...but I'll still watch for the trailers.

Hope we see a lot on Destiny. It's most likely gonna be a reveal trailer, but I'd like to see gameplay.

#15 Posted by TrapJak (2933 posts) -

Yeah....I'm watching it.

Don't judge me.

Too bad I'll be working lol.
#18 Posted by TheEpicGoat (2006 posts) -

All I want to see is a trailer from Bungie.

#19 Posted by Vari3ty (11111 posts) -

Fallout 4 reveal anyone?

Agreed. Going to be hilarious. I'm also awaiting the new trailers for games.
#22 Posted by TheEpicGoat (2006 posts) -

Fallout 4 reveal anyone?

Vari3ty

In 2010 Bethesda said they had 2 games in development so it is possible.

#23 Posted by SPYDER0416 (16736 posts) -

OHHHHHHHH

MYYYYYY

GODDDDDDDDDDDDD

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS PLEAAAASSSSSEEEEEEE

The VGAs are terrible. I watched it once and it was based on a bunch of stereotypes. The only reason to watch is for the trailers.

#25 Posted by EPaul (9907 posts) -

I will look out for the trailers on GT tomorrow thanks for the heads up

I have mixed feeling about VGA. They are very disorganized, and they seem to have little criteria picking the winners in each category. But somestimes they do do things right. I remember the presentations for GOTY in 2010 were amazing.

Poor lems they're going to spend a night butthurting over Journey getting the best game award and Halol 4 no even getting nominated.

Dude, this is the VGA's. Its got "bro" gamers written all over it. It will be Halo and COD all night.

Welcome to Kuri's world of warped real;ity. Where everyone that just said anything negative about the VGA's is automatically a 'Lem'...

That'd be awesome, but I doubt it...

The nominees for best games have no COD and Halo. Brogamers are the definition of lems but this VGAs actually have shown some taste.

Good point, I'm not the target audience for that show, so I won't bother. All it can offer me is a slight headache...

#34 Posted by SPYDER0416 (16736 posts) -

I just hope it's better than last year, even with more games and gamers on display, the actual awards went by in a breeze and they actually pissed off Mark Hamill and some of the nominees because of the lack of care given to the awards in favor of Felicia Day slicing fruit.

I mean, I like Felicia Day, but come on guys... really?

rofl. Your sig. Didn't even notice it was Walt when I first looked.
#36 Posted by moistsandwich (25 posts) -

I'm going to watch it.

A quick question.... are any of you gamers? Any gamer would want to watch it, not because it matters what is chosen for GOTY necessarily.

But reveals are a big part of what we thrive on as gamers, especially on these forums.

The VGA's weren't that bad last year.... its funny how many people here will take 1 persons word as gospel if they work for Gamespot, but if its a group of reviewers voting for the best games of the year... its crap... just because the VGA's used to be horrible.

#37 Posted by CR00K (2647 posts) -
Yes! I've already got my Mountain Dew and Doritos ready, bro! I hope they announce new maps for BLOPS, bro! Let's do it, bros! Bro, bro, bro! For real though, I'm only watching it for The Last of Us and whatever new announcements that they're hyping up. I would just wait until the trailers hit the web,but TLOU is killing me! I need this game now, damnit!
#38 Posted by TheEpicGoat (2006 posts) -

Oh yeah, something from DICE seems likely probably Battlefield: BC3 to go against CoD.

Its a pretty silly show, but they do sometimes have new trailers (not that you couldn't watch them online after release).
#42 Posted by finalstar2007 (26260 posts) -

Is there a live stream that i use to watch the whole event?

Some people don't care about the games they announce at the VGA's.

Also, Gordon Freeman and Walter White both live in New Mexico and are science geniuses with no qualms when it comes to shooting and murdering their fellow humans...

coincidence????

Any links? Or will they not make a livestream this year? I hear that Xbox 360 owners will have a livestream, but the Internetz doesn't seem to have one.......yet :PDesmonic

I saw an advertisement that said "On Spike TV and Spike.com" Whether you have to be a member of something or not, I'm not sure. Hopefully not. I'm trying to watch the Lakers/Thunder and this simultaneously.

I don't care how much better it has gotten. They went to far, and they cannot redeem themselves.

#49 Posted by CR00K (2647 posts) -
Just a warning to everyone. If there's a game you haven't finished this year that's up for an award, don't watch this stupid show. They spoiled the RDR ending for me in 2010. ragesohard
