'Spike TV' Will Hold Video Game Awards
CREDIT: Yahoo!

Spike TV "the first network for men" will hold its inaugural Video Game Awards show in Las Vegas next month, with actor-comedian David Spade as host.

The show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena will premiere on Spike TV on Dec. 4 (9 p.m. EST).

"The VGAs celebrate those games that have blistered our fingers poised on the joystick and kept us up all night," Albie Hecht, president of Spike TV, said in a statement Monday.

"We're throwing out all the boring and stagnant elements of traditional awards shows and focusing on what matters the characters, game play, animation, music and performances that have made an impact on the video game community throughout the past year."

Awards will be presented in 16 categories, including game of the year, best online game and best game based on a movie.

Gaming industry experts, public opinion via Spike TV's Web site and the network's editorial board will determine the winners.

------------------------
Might as well. Everything else already has an award show. I hope this turns out to be good and they give credit to a lot of good games.

Is there anything left that does not have an awards show?

If you were someone that won an award would you put it on your resume?

Assuming that you would only use your resume to land work in a chosen field, yes, I would assume that winners would include references to awards won for excellence in their profession. No matter how pointless video game awards might be to you and me, recognition for technological achievement would probably be valuable within that community.

"We're throwing out all the boring and stagnant elements of traditional awards shows"

So they're NOT having an awards show, then?

Knowing SpikeTV's mindset, this'll be "hosted" by Pamela Anderson and Howard Stern, and they'll give a lifetime achievement award to "the guy who made Lara Croft's tits".

Technacly there was a video game awards show earlier this year, the G4 channel had G-Phoria where the Glow Awards were given out.

At this rate, we'll have as many Video Game award shows as Music awards and such.

First Network for Men indeed; they'll probably get
rid of the software engineers coming up to the
podium for their thank you speeches and replace
them with mascots or celebs.

on the shelves UEFA Euro 2008 [metacritic] - this is the mid year EA soccer game, complimenting FIFA 08, but it's reviewed as an improved version of FIFA and not just a roster update.
