VGA: Spike Video Game Award Winners

It was certainly a hectic night at Spike TV’s Vide Game Awards, Samuel L Jackson hosted the awards, with cameo appearances in numerous video games. Trailers premiered for eagerly anticipated titles, 2 new games were announced and Jessica Alba even put Super Mario Bros and Dark Souls on equal planes of difficulty. Certain awards were glossed over to pave way for the Jack Reacher trailer, making it was easy to miss an award or two, so check out the comprehensive list below.
