And your Spike VGX winners are…

SAWH990528623220

The Spike VGAs may have had a name change this year to the VGX awards, but it was business as usual for the MTV Movie Awards of gaming. There were losers and there were winners that night. Here’s the list of developers and games that walked away with top honours that night.

  • Best Song - “Will the Circle be Unbroken” (BioShock Infinite)
  • Best Soundtrack - Grand Theft Auto V
  • Best Voice Actress - Ashley Johnson
  • Best Voice Actor - Troy Baker 
  • Best Casual game - Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  • Best Handheld game - The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Best PC game - Gone Home 
  • Best Nintendo game - Super Mario 3D World 
  • Best PlayStation game -  The Last of Us
  • Best Xbox game - Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  • Best DLC - Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon
  • Best Driving game - Forza Motorsport 5
  • Best Fighting game - Injustice: Gods Among Us
  • Best RPG - Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
  • Best Independent game - Gone Home
  • Best Sports game - NBA 2K14
  • Best Action Adventure game - Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Best Shooter - BioShock Infinite 
  • Studio of the Year - Naughty Dog
  • Game of the Year - Grand Theft Auto V

A couple of good choices there, a couple of not so good decisions. Of course, the Spike VGX awards are only one of many, many awards that will be handed out to various games this year, with the far more prestigious and sought-after Lazygamer Awards arriving at the end of the year.

The only award that actually matters, it’ll be up soon. And by soon, I mean by as soon as we’re done voting. So far, Zoe has lost three fingers trying to convince us that Call of Duty: Ghosts should not win best driving game of the year, but the democratic chainsaw said otherwise.

Truth, Justice, Integrity and the North Korean way. The Lazygamer Awards will be hitting your face with completely biased voting soon.

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time


  • SauRoN

    But Brothers a Tale of Two Sons is multi platform? Surely the Xbox could have gotten an exclusive?

    • Willem Swanepoel

      a lot of people is raging about that … lol ;-)

    • Hammersteyn

      They hardly have any left as is.

  • Umar Seeker of Truth

    Best soundtrack is GTA V………………meh

    • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

      I suppose it’s because there are like 270 songs?

      • Willem Swanepoel

        They probably listened to Queen – Radio Gaga ;-)~

      • Umar Seeker of Truth

        That much? I don’t know, aren’t those the songs that play on the radio while you drive? I mean, music is an important part of the game that enhances everything about it, not just having a sheer number of songs that sound like 5fm top 40.

        • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

          Ya. On the radio. To me it shouldn’t count.

          • Umar Seeker of Truth

            A real shame. this year had some pretty amazing music

        • Marc O Polo

          it has a original soundtrack also, used during missions etc

          • Umar Seeker of Truth

            Yup I know, but that original songs are not OST of the year great

    • Hammersteyn

      Radio Gaga! Yeah they cheated.

      • Umar Seeker of Truth

        Exactly lol….that is so much cheating for a soundtrack that has other artist’s songs to win best soundtrack

    • TiMsTeR1033

      What would of been your choice Umar?

      • Umar Seeker of Truth

        I would’ve voted for Ni No Kuni. Joe Hisashi soundtrack on that game was MASTERFUL

        • Tarisma

          Was metal gear rising revengence published this year?

          That games soundtrack was insane! Suited the tempo of the game the whole way through!

          • Umar Seeker of Truth

            Agree!! Actually the way the music ramps up especially in boss fights when the boss is low on health is absolutely brilliant. I don’t know why more games don’t do that

          • Tarisma

            It just added to the epicness of the game. It made the boss battles memorable in a game that played out like one massive boss battle!!

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Absolutely!

        • Sageville

          Yeah but only 4 peeps played the game…../trololo

          • Umar Seeker of Truth

            Damn you! lol ……. More people need to play it

  • Willem Swanepoel

    Best PC game: Gone Home …. meh ….

    • Willem Swanepoel

      Thought something like Path of Exile would get it. I am not a big fan of PoE but it is still a good game.

    • Sageville

      Baffled me too, gone home is some indie offering, assumes that no AAA title cut the mustard.

      Doesn’t add up to me.

      Surely GTA V would have made the….. oh nvm….

  • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

    I look forward to the end of year LG awards :) So much trolling potential lies in wait…

    • Willem Swanepoel

      LG Awards have always been the biggest troll fest. Not even news24 can come close to that ;-)~

      • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

        Bwahahah! Did you see last year’s?

        • Willem Swanepoel

          bawhahaha yeah … ;) Troll foods!

    • TiMsTeR1033

      LG awards… what is this that you speak of?

      • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

        Lol. Last year they chose CoD as best multiplayer game above Borderlands 2. The internet went from ‘ok’ to RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE in about 4 seconds.

        • TiMsTeR1033

          COD is a game?? I thought was place children go when they want to swear and call peoples mothers names..

          • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

            Lol. Sadly they don’t have a geographical category :P

          • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

            Well. Then COD isn’t the only place where they do that.
            You want to play with a great online community, play some Garry’s mod. Man, that’s just the most fun I’ve had in ages.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Yeah, there was a shock in the air… They trolled us with COD winning and this place almost saw a riot.

          • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

            What I found even more entertaining was the rage spilt over onto Twitter :)

          • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

            That’s when it goes from debating to just being sad.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Call of Duty is serious business!

          • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

            Haha. It really is to some. I’m a big gamer, but people just don’t get it that opinions differ. It’s so useless to get into arguments over games. There are much better arguments to be made, that actually have proof to support them. Like how pc is better than consoles. Trolololo

          • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

            Debating? There was no debating. I was right, they were wrong. Because Awesome.

          • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

            Your logic is undeniable.

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            lol seriously? I kind of turtled soon after the awards came out… the shock… it was so great!

          • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

            I am eager about what will happen this year!

      • DrKiller

        You know the TVs that LG sell? He wants to know which one will win this year :P

    • Hammersteyn

      True, after this lets see COD sneak in.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Last year’s LG Awards was probably the worst. I’m still in shock… Call of fucking Duty…. I actually had to medicate myself with a case of Guinness and some salty cracks.

    • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

      Followed by lots of: But wait, there’s more.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      What would you do if Call of Ghost Duty Paste wins this year?

      • Kensei Seraph remembers Madiba

        Probably accuse LG of using a COD sponsored democratic chainsaw.

        • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

          Democratic? More like a monarchy in fanboy eyes.

      • RinceGivesRspectsToMadiba

        I’m not sure man. There is only so much rage I can handle.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Yeah, I think I’d need therapy thereafter… :o

  • TiMsTeR1033

    OH YEAH!!! THATS RIGHT BITCHES WHO EVER SAID GTA V IS BAD YOU SUCK IT!!!

  • Hammersteyn

    Spot on! 10 out of 10!

  • Robert Hart

    Trust them to pick a random indi game (which was not good at all compared to the other PC games released) for PC.

  • Milesh Bhana

    business as usual? no, the show was sooo boring. I have no idea why the canned the live show in favour of that horrid studio show.

    as for the actual awards, well, some i agree with , others not so much. Was kinda hoping that Last of Us would beat GTA5 for GOTY, but not surprised that it didn’t.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Aye, I think after that shitty rap performance , I knew GTA 5 was going to take it. I like GTA 5, but I don’t think it should have won, but then if you consider who was on the panel (a bunch of retards from Polygon) it makes sense that Last of Us’s title was stolen.

    • DX11213

      Let’s be honest, TLoU had a good story but the gameplay was…mediocre. It should have won best storyline, but as an overall game (with its gameplay), it didn’t really do anything special.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Last of Us > GTA 5 (Yeah I went there).

    • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

      Age Of Empires > Solitaire

      Can’t really compare such different games though. I haven’t played either, so my opinion here is purely objective. You really do need a game per category to win. Overall winner can only be based on sales or opinion. Nothing else.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Solitaire > Call of Duty

        Technically you can, since “enjoyment” is subjective rather than objective, you can definitely compare the “enjoyment’ you feel between two very different things, and that includes videogames of different genres. For instance, I “enjoy” Elementary more than Blue Bloods. Both are essentially TV series about crime, but one is a drama series focussed on family values whereas the other is an awesome take on Sherlock Holmes. Similarly, I enjoy Judo more than chocolate cake. Two very different entities, yet clearly my enjoyment of each is a matter of my personal opinion – which is wholly subjective.

        • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

          Haha. Solitaire > COD. Agreed.
          Yes, but as you say your enjoyment is still your experience, your opinion. That’s my point. It’s subjective and not entirely viable if it’s not at least in the same category. I never said it has to be objective, it just needs to be narrowed down.

          Some people prefer FPS games, others hate it, so it skews things. Each category has its own fans.

  • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

    Best PC game. Gone Home? I’ve never heard of that before.

    • Kensei Seraph remembers Madiba

      Same.

  • oVg

    Best video game year EVER!!!

  • Tarisma

    Best soundtrack GTA V? Really?

    • oVg

  • oVg

    • Shift-Tab John (JJ)

      Did I miss a YouTube post memo?
      Funny video. Hehehe

  • oVg

    What is Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons?

    I am on this site everyday and I have never heard of it.

    • Willem Swanepoel

      Not bad at all. goes for $15 … do it … do it now!

  • Sageville

    Soooo what does VGX stand for?

    VGA at least made sense, VGX is just stupid.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Video Game EXTREEEEMMMEEEEE!!!!!! hehehe

  • Lardus-Resident Perve

    I agree with Best Sports game , but I must admit I did not play all the sports games.

  • Rikus

    This is what I have against these award shows. It really goes against my logic:

    Best PC game: Gone Home
    Best Xbox game: Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
    Best PS game: The last of Us
    Best Nintendo game: Super Mario 3D World
    Best handheld game: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

    Game of the year: GTA V.

    Shouldn’t the game of the year also be the best game on a specific platform? From this logic, GTA V is not available on PC, Xbox, PS, Nintendo or handheld.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    My sentiments captured by Angry Joe –

  • Avithar

    Best sports game NBA????? that should of being FIFA or even PES…
