Spike dumped the theater 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: Recognize the best games of the year. Twenty-three awards were given out; here are all of them.
Though there have been some awful moments today—please don't make me watch PewDiePie again—this stood out as one genuinely great segment of the 2013 Spike VGX.
No big upsets here: the Spike VGX named Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V their game of 2013. Other nominees were not named Grand Theft Auto.
It's Spike VGX time, which means we're in for an afternoon filled with trailers, new game announcements, and a show that will hopefully be less gross than its tagline.
The Spike VGAs are now the Spike VGX. This year's annual award show is happening this Saturday at 6pm Eastern, and although it won't be televised live, we'll have the whole three-hour extravaganza streaming here on Kotaku for you.
