The Spike TV Video Game Awards were handed out last night in a star-studded event at Sony Picture Studios somewhere in “California.” It was hosted by Jack Black and was mostly abysmal, judging by the 15 minutes or so I wasted watching it. Everything is fueled by Dew for some reason (whereas I’ve never had Mountain Dew in my life).

The big winner was Grand Theft Auto IV, which surprises no one.

The full list of winners

The list isn’t too bad, to be fair to Spike TV. The show itself, though, would benefit from toning down a little bit. It’s not a monster truck show or pro wrestling. The less explosions and LOUD MUSIC the better.
