Oh Yeah, There Were Some Awards Handed Out At The VGX, Too

Oh Yeah, There Were Some Awards Handed Out at the VGX, Too

Spike dumped the theatre format for a more whatever-that-was in last night's re-christened VGX, increasing the show's length to three hours but still, as ever, seeming to minimize its purpose: Recognise the best games of the year. 20-three awards were given out; here are all of them.

(Above: Irrational Games' charming acceptance speech for Best Shooter, BioShock Infinite.)

    "20-three awards were given out"

    Not sure if Kotaku has a stylebook, but if it does, I don't think that's how you're meant to phrase that phrase. It's either "twenty-three" or "23" (preferred)


      Owen doesn't care about your rules, man! He's a rebel who plays by his own rules, and if those pencil-pushers down at city hall don't like it they can kiss his ass!

    Seriously, did they think they'd get more viewers if they jammed an X in there somewhere?

    Best Shooter: Bioshock Infinite?
