4Chan Is Holding Its Very Own 'Vidya Gaem Awards'

Man, dis gon' be gud! 4Chan is apparently in the midst of creating its very own Game of the Year awards, and I'm actually really looking forward to it. If anything, you can truly count on 4Chan to be completely and brutally honest. Also — they have the best categories.

Called the Vidya Gaem Awards, or the /v/GAs for short, the categories are as follows...

- Least Hated Game of the Year the game /v/ hated the least - Most Hated Game of the Year the game /v/ hated the most - Sort of OK Dev Award for developer of the year - Karl Marx Award for most capitalistic publisher - Alright Publisher Award for publisher of the year - "My Eyes are Bleeding" Award for worst graphics - Stylish Aesthetics Award for best aesthetics / art style - Grafics Cat Award for best technical graphics - S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Award for least convincing voice acting - Golden Voice Award for the best voice actor / actress - Best Voice Acting Award for best general voice acting in a game - Hamburger Helper Award for terrible writing - Planescape Award for great writing - Press X to Win the Award for most awful gameplay - "Actually Kind of Fun" Award for best gameplay - Rehash Award for least improved sequel - Hyperbole Award for most impressive trailer - Reddit Award for most hated fanbase this year - Teabagging Award for worst video game related event - Blunder of the Year for setting a new standard for failure - Scrub of the Year Award presented by THE BEST GAMERS - Most Interesting New IP for the IP we want to see more of - Audiophile Award for best sound - Eargasm Award for best soundtrack - Activision Award for crimes against gaming - VY Canis Majoris Award for fattest developer

You can click through to check out the list of nominees here

Some of the categories are brilliant: Origin, Ubisoft's DRM and Sony's hacking, among others, are all up for the Activision Award for crimes against gaming. Whilst Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Mario Kart 7, and Monster Girl Quest are all up for the 'coveted' 'Least Hated Game of the Year Award'.

Good luck everyone. You'll need it. The awards will be announced on February 11.

    I believe in you, Gabe!
    You can win that last one!
    (he is probably rolling around naked in piles of cash as we speak)

      ahahah Indeed

    Duke Nukem Forever will definately win the most hated game of the year award.

    Well seems like typical 4chan douchery for a lot of the nominations.
    Skyrim for worst graphics? Battlefield 3 for most hated game? Minecraft in hated game and standard for failure?
    4chan on crack, as always... Always has been a bunch of immature little shits, nothing has changed. As always they hate things because it is cool to hate.

      Sounds like you hate 4chan...?

        "As always they hate things because it is cool to hate."

        4chan are cool to hate and that seems to be what you're doing...

        HATECEPTION!

          Meant for Andy that was.

            Andy's just jelly cause he isn't 4chan

        Uh well skyrim does currently run pretty much the same as a console currently. And most 4chan gamers are pc gamers... So its more of a console hate thing i would imagine.

        Well seems like typical 4chan douchery for a lot of the nominations.
        Skyrim for worst graphics? Battlefield 3 for most hated game? Minecraft in hated game and standard for failure?

        Skyrim is nominated for worst graphics because it's technically extremely unimpressive, especially on a PC.
        Battlefield 3 was widely hated on /v/ due to forced Origin use, extremely poor optimization, graphics that did not live up to expectations, and bad customer support, though one of the mods is a fan and there are often long threads about it. It's sort of a thing where /v/ hates the game but loves playing it.
        Minecraft is in hated game and standard for failure because unlike most of the internet (and most likely you) /v/ has followed it since release when Notch promised a 3D Dwarf Fortress, but then promptly became lazy when the game became popular, releasing what /v/ viewed as an unfinished project with hundreds of unfulfilled promises.

        The more you know~

      Skyrim was not at all a technically impressive game, you can't argue this.
      Battlefield 3 was not a successor to BF2, which was why it is hated.
      Minecraft is a huge disappointment, more so for /v/ since they were the one that started the initial popularity of the game and were promised many features. I'm still waiting on Notch to deliver my god damned zombie survival mode.

      You're taking it at face value, there's some justification in these decisions.

      Hi Andy,

      I just wanted to remind you this is the real world, and most people probably aren't going to agree with your opinions on most things.

      Grow up, and try playing some games older than 5th generation. This list from /v/ is actual the most honest and humbling I've seen for any awards for 2011.

    BWHAHAHAHAA....
    "- Activision Award for crimes against gaming
    - VY Canis Majoris Award for fattest developer"

    Awesome!

    "Hyperbole Award for most impressive trailer"
    This made me chuckle :D

    Okay they win for me because of their top nomination for worst videogame related event:
    http://vidyagameawards.com/nominations.php?category=WorstVGAs

    My work firewall is allergic to 4chan. Probably for the best.

      I wouldn't even dream of trying it!

      You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

    I do enjoy the fact that they've split some categories.

    - Stylish Aesthetics Award for best aesthetics / art style
    - Grafics Cat Award for best technical graphics

    That's a distinction I don't think is made often enough.

      Yeah, some of the awards are really good, while others are just for lols.

      I would like to point out that this is Not a 4Chan award. It is /v/ awards. I think the catagorys would be a bit more... interesting if, say, /b/ and /d/ where part of it. lol

    Disappointed they chose not to nominate Portal 2 in the best art style category, sort of makes the distinction irrelevant for me.

      It was just source though. If you look at the vines and stuff, you can tell how crummy the textures are. It looks better in HD on my 360 than it does on PC at max (no HD monitor lol), but the graphics aren't what made that game.

        What you mean to say is that your TV is a better quality display than your computer monitor.

        You know even if your monitors resolution is 1280x720 that's considered HD since it's 720P & the PS3 & 360 only put out at 720P

    Outstanding. Finally, a review system I can trust. /gag/

    Now..... this is a hard one, don't know which one to pick :P

    http://vidyagameawards.com/nominations.php?category=FattestDev

    BAHAHAHA The fattest dev one is just brilliant! It's all Gabe Newell!

    I think this is rather amusing, and those getting upset for it are being, quite successfully, trol-lol-loled

    But no mention of Space Marine in ANY of the lists?
    Heresy!
    That game had some killer sound effects, yo.
    Music was also rad
    and should definately be a contender for new game we'd like to see more of ;)

    /Spacemarinefanboy

      Space Marine is a taste of what's possible. Space Marine 2 will be amazing.

        You, my friend, are my new kindred spirit!!

        God i hope it happens.. so so much potential and the MP aspect of the first one just keeps getting better and better

    Lets replace Spike Awards with this

    4chan has it's own standards. Ones that I don't care for.

      You cared enough to post about it.
      U mad?

        It's a public service. After all, if we didn't post about how terrible 4Chan is, how would anyone know?

    Aww...Katawa Shoujo doesn't get a mention. It should have it's own category.

    It IS the '4chan game', after all!

      It wasn't out at the time.

    Oh wow, /v/. You guys achieve a lot when you put your mind to it.

    This'll be infinitely better than the other VGAs.

      It isnt called Hamburger Help award because its funny

    Will not watch unless its hosted by PEDOBEAR!!!!!

      this isnt 4chan awards or /b/ awards, its /v/ awards.

    Can't say I've ever had the inclination to go anywhere near 4chan. As a conglomerate they don't seem worth my time, but I do like some of their award titles.

    Some of those awards are kind of hilarious.

    Activision award for instance.

    Disappointing to not have notch up for the Activision award. Such a fly by night scumbag.

    4CHAN should run the actual VGA's

    Once upon a time there was a little red hen who lived in a big farm-yard.
    She had three fluffy yellow chicks.
    One morning as they were busily scratching about the yard, looking for something to eat, the little red hen found a grain of wheat.

    "Look!" she said.
    "See what I have found. Who will help me to plant this grain of wheat?"

    "Not I," said the duck. "I must go down to the pond for a swim."
    "Not I," said the cat. "I have some visitors coming in a few minutes."

    "Very well, I will then", said the little red hen, and she did.

    After a while some weeds appeared among the stalks of wheat.
    One day the little red hen asked:
    "Who will help me to weed this wheat?"

    "Not I," said the duck. "That sort of work doesn't agree with me."
    "Not I", said the cat. "I would not be able to tell the weeds from the wheat".

    "Very well, I will then", said the little red hen, and she did.

    After a while the wheat began to ripen:
    "What fine wheat we have," said the cat and the duck.
    "Yes, indeed, it is time to reap the wheat," said the little red hen. "Who will help me to reap this wheat?"

    "Not I", said the cat.
    "Not I", said the duck.

    "Very well, then I will", said the little red hen

    She cut the heads off the grain very carefully and put them in a bag.

    Then she called to the cat and the duck and she asked, "Now, who will take this wheat to the mill to be ground into flour?"
    "Not I", said the duck.
    "Not I", said the cat.

    "Very well, then", said the little red hen, "I will take it myself".

    So the little red hen trudged off to the mill, and in a few hours she was back with a sack of fine flour.

    "Now, who is going to make this flour into bread?" asked the little red hen.

    "Not I", said the duck.
    "Not I", said the cat.

    "I will, then," said the little red hen, and she did.

    Soon the loaf was ready for the oven.

    "Now, who is going to bake this bread?" asked the little red hen.

    "Not I", said the cat.
    "Not I", said the duck.

    "Very well, then", said the little red hen. "I will do it".

    So the loaf of bread was baked and it was baked, and it was beautiful, golden and crusty. The little red hen put it on the kitchen table, and the cat and the duck came into the house and looked at it longingly.

    "Well now, who is going to eat this loaf of bread?" asked the little red hen.

    "I will", said the duck quickly.
    "I will", said the cat stepping close.

    "Oh, no, you won't", said the little red hen. "I am going to eat it myself".

    Then she called her little chicks together, and they ate the whole loaf of bread. Not a crumb was left for the duck and the cat.

    >duck=reddit
    >cat=gaming websites

      what are the hen and the chicks and the bread?

        I think the bread represents the award show and the hen is /v/ making it.

        >chicks=/v/, /b/, and /a/
