Seven Reasons Why the 2010 Spike Video Game Awards are Ridiculous
5. "Best Song in a Game Award" nomination
|Green Day's "Basket Case" was used used in "Green Day: Rock Band." Brilliant.|
Green Day's "Basket Case" song is nominated for "Best Song in a Game" for Green Day: Rock Band. The problem with this is that "Basket Case" shouldn't be part of a the game's soundtrack--it's a level.
6. Certain nominated games weren't even released when they were nominated
|"Donkey Kong Country Returns" was nominated for Best Wii Game before it was even released|
Since nominating a game before its release date doesn't even matter to Spike, it hardly seems fair that Gran Turismo 5, released on November 24, was ignored for the nomination of "Best Driving Game."
7. "Game of the Year" Award
|2nd highest-rated game OF ALL TIME. However, not nominated for Game of the Year. What gives?|
