Spike VGAs: The Walking Dead Wins Big, Journey Takes Three
It was another fun, entertaining night, capped by what may have been a surprise Game of the Year winner.
The Spike TV 2012 Video Game Awards are complete and the awards have been handed out. Telltale Studios had quite the showing, taking home Studio of the Year while their popular and well-received downloadable title, The Walking Dead: The Game, landed Game of the Year. It also won Best Downloadable Game.
Personally, I think the latter should've gone to Journey, but at least Thatgamecompany's masterpiece brought home three awards: Best Independent Game, Best PS3 Game, and Best Original Score. And considering that composer Austin Wintory has earned a Grammy nomination for Journey, Best Original Score should've been a given, yes? Halo 4 nabbed two awards (Best Xbox 360 Game, Best Graphics), and Borderlands 2 won Best Shooter and Best Multiplayer Game. Half-Life 2 was revealed as the Entertainment Weekly and Spike VGA Best Game of the Decade...which I don't agree with even slightly, but that's okay.
Feel free to check out the full list of winners. So what do you think of the awards this year?
