Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 picked up the award for best shooter during Spike TV’s Video Game Awards show tonight, but not without causality.

The rules of the VGA acceptance speech are: If you go past your allotted time, a cosplaying soldier teabags you on stage. When Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling blew the time limit, he tossed the award to Michael Condrey, co-founder and chief development officer at Sledgehammer Games, and ran off stage.

So it was Condrey who took the crotch to the face as presenter Charlie Sheen grinned and watched.


  • “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 picked up the award for best shooter”

    The same way Transformers 3 should win the Oscar for best picture obviously. I know gaming is still a fairly young medium but a little taste would do wonders for our credibility.

  • Yeah alot of people that love call of duty even went, yeah what’s the big deal this year man? It’s like any awards show, it’s not a real award it’s just marketing to promote product, boost celeb status etc etc. I say we all just let it go perhaps?

  • I love how he said they were working hard in the studio constantly updating the game when MW3 is pretty much a map pack for MW2. Ah well..

  • Award shows very rarely give awards to those deserving of them, and when they do it feels more like a coincidence than a well thought out decision. It doesn’t matter what medium the awards are for, it’s all the same bs.

  • In case anyone hasn’t noticed, BF3 is the biggest piece of crap ever to hit consoles. Graphics, sure, they look pretty on PC, but even the introductory sequence was a pixelly piece of crap on my 1080p LED. BF3 = Waste of $90 and hours of my life hoping it would get better at some point.

    • Are you really complaining that a game looks dated on a console running hardware from 2005?

      You’re clearly everything that is wrong with the progression of gaming.

    • No way! Me too! Wanna come over and see my secret hideout cave and then go fight crime together? It’ll be the best!

  • with the amount of game ruining bugs in BF3 it really didn’t deserve to win…
    i’m not CoD fanboy but BF3 has left a bad taste in my mouth so i’m not too upset about this 🙂
