Op Ed

GamePro - Why we hate the VGAs.
The easy answer is: "The show sucks." GamePro Twitter followers had different reasons for the suck -- the jokes fell flat, the musical numbers were out of place, Denise Richards isn't as hot as she used to be, etc. But the real reason everyone hates this show is that it's a show. It's a two-hour block of television designed to entertain audiences and display commercials. Even if Spike hired Pulitzer-winning writers to pen the script and brought Johnny Carson back from the dead to host, most of you would probably still hate it. Because all the things that make the VGAs a show put another wall between you and what you really care about: the games.

maybe ppl are tired of sifting thru the continuous sale's pitch of commercials to watch a show thats essentially an even larger commercial. dead business model anyone? maybe ppl are totally tired of ppl talking and selling ideas about doing things and having great products. instead why not actually make something good, then you wouldn't need a bloated whale carcass of a show to try and sell a bunch of crap. really it's a complete lack of substance, and it's not just the vga's with that problem.
