Maybe having a host that has played a video game? I haven't watched it in a while, but the first few I caught glimpses of, it was obvious that the host didn't play video games. (Bring on Felicia Day!)
What's with all the hip-hop and rap? Most games do not have these types of music inside them and I doubt any of the songs played actually appear in the games nominated. If there can be a Game Music Concert, why can't they play the music at the awards show. Lets hear some Jeremy Soule and some of the other great game music writers.
