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.

    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 🙂
