Last week, we recorded a podcast on who we thought the winners would be and for the most part I think we came close with our predictions. As for the show itself, I found the Samuel L. Jackson skits and surprise announcements to be very disappointing overall. Another equally annoying part about the show is that several game awards were announced backstage prior to the actual show. If this is the programming format that Spike sticks to moving forward, then I most certainly won’t be watching this awards show anymore.

Do any of you guys agree or disagree with any of the games chosen to win in certain categories? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
