No Painted Nearly Naked Girls, But Girls

Illustration for article titled No Painted Nearly Naked Girls, But Girls

Last year's Spike Video Game Awards uses nearly naked ladies instead of envelopes with paper to announce the winners. Hardly traditional, the VGA had woman painted with game motifs walk on stage. But what about at this year's show?

Spike TV's Casey Patterson has told game blog Multiplayer that the painted ladies won't be back. Continuing, she adds, "For any Spike show we do know that guys want to see beautiful ladies." But just not painted ladies. This year, it sounds like there will be ladies, but ladies wearing wings — "heavenly ladies"?

What's wrong with just opening an envelope and reading something off a piece of paper? Like, it seems to work okay for the Oscars...

Well, the Oscars take themselves seriously, is treated as the highest honor the industry has and is voted on by members of said industry.

The Spike Video Game Awards is just crap fueled by Dew.

@Brian Ashcraft:

Brian, question for you: how about whipping out the ol' rolodex and asking various devs their opinion on this? Do they consider it an honor? Do they say "whatever helps move product"? Do they see it as a joke? Grant them some anonymity and I'll bet you could get some pretty candid responses.
