The Walking Dead: The Game won five trophies at Spike TV’s 10th annual Video Game Awards, including the top prize of Game of the Year. The downloadable game, based on the hit comic-book series, also earned Telltale Games Studio of the Year. Borderlands 2 won four awards, including Best Shooter, and Journey won three awards, including Best Independent Game.
For the fourth time, Samuel L.

Jackson set the tone early, warning the audience and the show’s producers, “Whoever’s in charge of the bleep button, keep your finger ready.” He delivered on his promise, dealing expletives like he had snakes in his carry-on at 30,000 feet.
In between handing out awards, the show was full of first looks and trailers for next year’s biggest games. The first video for South Park: The Stick of Truth debuted, with Cartman assaulting a hobbit. “I’m the wizard, and you’re the dwarf, and you will respect my authority,” he screamed.

The societal impact of major franchises like Call of Duty, or Halo, or Grand Theft Auto arguably supersedes the effect of comparable movie franchises. If anything, Hollywood is more and more taking its cues from videogames. (Sometimes literally. See: Assassin’s Creed: The Movie That Might Not Be Terrible.) READ FULL STORY »
