It’s safe to say that anyone these days can have a video game awards event. Some people you trust more than others when it comes to dishing out awards, and some get an eyeball rolling so hard that you’re likely to pop your peepers out in the process. But one show that does carry some weight every year, are the Game Developers Choice Awards. These are the guys and gals within the industry itself that vote on what they consider to be the best of the best every year. Here’s a look at who is rocking what nomination this year.
Cable network channel in the States, Spike TV, announced the nominees and categories for its sixth annual Video Game Awards (VGA). No real suprisses anywhereRockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV garnered nine nominations, while Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet, Fallout 3, and Konami's Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots picked up seven nominations each. Epic Games' Gears of War 2, released a week ago, enjoyed four nominations. All five titles are up for Spike's "Game of the Year" award.
