I actually didnt like this year show, I think they knew they didnt have any announcement inorder to make a full award show, so they made this small talk show, and sent the awards earlier to the Winners, what was the new games that were announced ?
World premier for Witcher 3 , Titan Fall, Destiny, Thief, Lara Croft, Remdy Game about time, Tim Shafer (what ever his name) game from kickstarter !!!!! These are all good games, but common, we had already seen info and videos on these games.
The only announced game that was interesting was No Man's Sky, hope it does well.
When compared to last year VGAs we had seen the 2nd "video/game demo" for the Last of Us as its 1st demo was shown in E3 2012, i still remember it, and we also seen 1st time footage for Southpark stick of truth after THQ Closing, and 2 indie titles won GoTY and Original Soundtrack.
They better make next year VGAs alot better. They should make a ceremony like they always do. and not some low made talk show, with a cool wannabe actor "Joel McHale" I have nothing to say for "Geoff Keighley" as he performed good and properly, the other guy was just pure annoyance.
Again I'm saying i hated the show and one of its hosts, and how it was organised, but i still love the games. :)
And i think they did it like this because they didnt have any strong announcements to back it up with. This year for gaming 2013 was weaker than 2012. All that we seen where sequels AC, Batman, CoD, BF, and only 2 new games TLoU and Beyond 2 Souls, and GTA V stands out of the Sequels as its great game on its own.
