Spike Video Game Awards 2012 – and the winners are…

There’s always a certain amount of skepticism about the Spike VGAs, as there will be about any gaming awards that try to blend recognition with as much spectacle as this. And I don’t think anybody besides Spike themselves would disagree that the world would be a better place with fewer celebrities pretending to be obsessed with games. (It’s just awkward for everyone, really.)

I’ve been skeptical myself, but not this year. Why?

Because The Walking Dead won Game of the Year.

Once you recover from your shock/happiness, click on past the break for the full list of winners. Trust me, you’ll want to.
