Criticism[sunting | sunting sumber]

Templat:Ref improve section The Video Game Awards have been heavily criticized since its inception (the first one in particular was universally panned for numerous reasons). One common criticism is that the VGAs are merely a popularity contest. This means that console games are more likely to win or be nominated over PC games. The show has also shown a lack of Japanese gaming in the later years of the show as less Japanese games are nominated or win each year.

In the very first VGAs, Halo on the PC won the best shooter category when it was technically a two year old game ported to another system by this point and should have been an invalid choice. A similar situation arose the next year when Samuel L. Jackson repeatedly referred to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as "Grand Theft Auto 2", though San Andreas is the fifth game in the series. The game was also shown as "Grand Theft Auto 3: San Andreas" when displayed.[19] Also at the first VGAs, Madden NFL 2004 took Game of the Year, though up against titles such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

The 2005 awards had also received criticism for having nominations for Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie and 50 Cent: Bulletproof (the latter of which was nominated for game of the year, despite being panned by critics and gamers alike). Both games had just been released when the special had aired, but after the filming, citing the possibility that the show was merely used as an advertising campaign for both games. The same could likely go for letting the TNA iMPACT! video game having a sneak peak at the awards, and possibly not letting WWE video games get nominated, since TNA iMPACT! is a Spike show, in hopes of avoiding more competition.

For the 2010 awards, Super Mario Galaxy 2 failed to earn a nomination for Game of the Year despite being the highest rated game of the year and one of the highest rated games of all time (ranked 3rd according to Game Rankings).[20] StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, Bayonetta, Vanquish and a few others, even though rated higher than several of the other titles put up for selection for the Game of the Year nominations. For Best Performance by a Human Male category, Nathan Fillion was nominated for his voiceover role as Sergeant Edward Buck in Halo: Reach, even though he did little voice work and was only for firefight mode if the player chooses Sergeant Edward Buck's voice. Winning the catergory was Neil Patrick Harris for his voice work as Peter Parker/Amazing Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.

Parodies[sunting | sunting sumber]

  • The Video Game Awards were parodied on an episode of MADtv, highlighting the fictional 1st Annual Video Game Awards on June 21, 1977, hosted by Joe Namath (played by Michael McDonald) and Farrah Fawcett (played by Arden Myrin), musical guest The Jackson 5, and award presenter Mark Spitz (played by Ike Barinholtz). Pong and Asteroids were the only video games nominated for all of the awards presented, even though Asteroids wasn't released in the arcade until 1979. The categories shown in the sketch were "Best Graphics in a Video Game" (Asteroids wins), and "Most Realistic Sound in a Video Game" (Pong and Asteroids win in a tie). Bobby Lee accepts an award as a designer of Asteroids. Space Invaders is shown to display the future of video games, although it was released before Asteroids in 1978.[21]
