Seven Reasons Why the 2010 Spike Video Game Awards are Ridiculous
Spike recently announced the nominations list for the show. Some of them make perfect sense, but others not so much. A few of them are downright silly. So silly, in fact, that you can't help but utter "Seriously?" when going through the list.
After the jump: A complete list of nominees for Spike's 2010 Video Game Awards... along with why some of them are completely ridiculous.
8 Reasons Why the 2010 Spike VGAs Awards are Ridiculous
1. "Best Performance by HUMAN Female"
|Emmanuelle Chriqui, aka "The Numbers Lady"|
Danica Patrick is nominated for her role as...herself? Really? I wonder how much time she devoted to research herself before playing the part. Also, Emmanuelle Chriqui is nominated for her role as "The Numbers Lady" in Call of Duty: Black Ops. As the silly role title suggests, her job is to simply read numbers for this game. Sure, she's pretty, but reading numbers hardly warrants a "best performance" nomination. It's a shame that voice actress Lindsey Shaw didn't get nominated for her excellent role of "Trip" in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Perhaps she didn't read enough numbers.
2. Best performance by HUMAN male
|Nathan Fillion, we loved your two lines of dialogue in "Halo: Reach"|
3. Kirby's Epic Yarn nominated for "Best Graphics"
|Whoa, check out those GRAPHICS!|
4. The existence of the "Most Anticipated Game" award
|Most anticipated game of 2010? We'll see!|
