This past Saturday, as I am sure you know, Spike TV held their annual Video Game Awards presentation. There were plenty of titles recognized in this year’s event as well as reveals for a ton of new games coming in 2012. We will get to the various game trailers and announcements throughout the day we figured that it would be best to start off by giving everyone a run down of all of the awards given throughout the evening, in case you missed the show.
