That list actually looks legit to me, if it was payed then it would be all Diablo 3 GOY PC, Blops2 GOY etc etc

It's obvious that they are trying to placate the gamer hipster crowd that mocks them every year. Hyping The Walking Dead the way they did and throwing an indie award out there were just two layers of icing on that thick cake they were baking for the elitist crowd.

It probably worked too, since a lot of the friends I saw last year bad mouthing the VGAs were now raving about them.

I still find it deplorable.

The awards themselves are pretty good. They've had that indie games category since 2010. A Call of Duty game has never won Game of the Year, only really competing in Best Shooter and Best Multiplayer.

However, the show itself sucks. Imagine the Oscars if they only announced 6 awards and aimed themselves at 18-35 male gamers.
