S It's going on six years now that Spike TV has been handing out awards to game developers on television for the year's best video games and each year, it seems, the show gets just a touch better. This year the show will include a live performance by 50 Cent, a Gamer God Award for Will Wright and, thankfully, no sponsored category. As in that annual Mountain Dew award won't be something the judges will have to vote on. Instead, I'm told it will be used to back an award for best indie game. As a judge, that's something I've been complaining about for years so I'm delighted to see it being shifted to something worthwhile. Now hit the jump to read up on the finalists for the 22 categories and argue over who should be taking home the awards.Game of the Year Grand Theft Auto IV LittleBigPlanet Fallout 3 Metal Gear Solid 4 Gears of War 2 Studio of the Year Media Molecule Rockstar North Harmonix Bethesda Game Studios Best Shooter Far Cry 2 Resistance 2 Gears of War 2 Left 4 Dead Best RPG Fable II Fallout 3 Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning The World Ends With You Best Fighting Game SoulCalibir IV Mortal Kombat Vs.
