Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sony, MSFT, Nintendo and more replacing VGX/VGA's with The Game Awards. Hosted by Geoff Keighley

Keighley also was heavily involved in vga/vgx .. I don't expect this "new" show to be any different

Sounds even more like a big marketing stunt than VGA's were.
Well there's always BAFTA'S.

So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

I guess it can't be worse than VGX (I only watched the highlights of that but it was awkward). I hope it's not some Oscar-level snorefest though. I don't like it when the video game industry has to legitimise itself by copying other industries.

No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.

Good. We need a universal awards show that we can respect. The VGAs are and have always been a joke.

VGX 2013 was so bad that it killed the show.

If the big three are all behind this, then hopefully we get some unbiased awards and reveals.

Sounds great, and I'm glad that Geoff is involved - no matter how much some people dislike him (or downright hate him), he's been nothing but one of biggest promoters of the industry, stood in the first lines whenever there was a need to defend it, yet he isn't afraid to ask difficult questions (anyone remembers Reggie's: "Geoff, Geoff!, GEOFF!!!" from few years ago?)

I don't see any particular reason why this won't be at least 50% pain as with previous years

Even in a "more developed industry" like film, awards are complete and utter nonsense. I really don't see much point in creating this event

Just put the trailers online and save yourself a lot of time and money

Great NEWS! finally we may have a good award show, and probably i will be able to see it live from now on.

Good improvement over vgx. Awards will be fair I hope.
