I totally agree with the best song category. ^_^
i dont agree with the walking dead its a fantastic game, i love it but i does not deserve game of the year that should go to mass effect or at least assassins creed 3.
Very nice picks. Also, great choice for game of the decade.
For once, I agree with all of these.
For me Diablo III should of been RPG of the year. Not hating on the list or anything, I agree with most of it, I just wanted to put down what I thought was my favorite.
Borderlands 2 cleaned house! Yay for Claptrap!
I was disappointed to not see a new game from Rocksteady announced. Good show this year.
Maybe I need to give The walking dead another chance because when I first played It I thought it was terrible. And YAY clap trap he was hilarious
Meh, awards never sit well for me and that's because it's all subjective based on one's own preference and enjoyment. Not to mention sparks needless debates on X and Y game.
Congrats to the winners and all that Jazz.
I was honestly yelling at the TV when Half-Life 2 was announced as game of the decade. Not only had I called it before-hand, but I was yelling at the Valve guys because it would have been the perfect time to announce any kind of follow-up to Half-Life 2. Maybe not HL3 or Episode 3, but something in the vein of a side-story or expansion or spin-off title would have been amazing and overshadowed any other announcement at the VGAs.
