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.
