That award show was bullshit, they only nominated voice actors with the most "star power." If Young Maylay was a Hollywood star, he'd get the award.

Theoretically the idea of video game awards sounds great, Spike TV doesn't know how to pull it off. They must have forgotten to read some demographic charts, because their award show is aimed at pea-brained little boys.

And Funkmaster Flex is getting old and pathetic. I definitely would not want to be "alone in the dark with Tara Reid." I wouldn't go near that disgusting whore.

like audiobird said the idea for a videogame award show is great if done right but spikes version is pretty lame. i mean do you hear the lines the presenters have to say before giving the award?! WTF?! it is lame. but least they gave the award to the right game! (GTA:SA)

Samuel maybe thought that GTA:Vice City was the first GTA because it was so big. Then he just said "2" instead of saying "San Andreas" that is longer.

He had one of the most parts for a game this year, I think, and he performed it well. He wasn't a choice since he's not a top-class, 'famous actor'... yet.

I'm waiting for Gforia. Now that's a good award show. Still, I'm glad GTA won it.

What pisses me off is that Halo 2 won best FPS. That should have gone to Half-Life 2 without a dought. Anyone who has played HL2 would know that it kicks Halo 2 in the Nuts.

I would be surprised if Burnout 3 won, since its not as popular as San Andreas, Halo 2, and Half-Life 2. Half-Life 2 won for best PC game, by the way. If only Rockstar released San Andreas for PC, then it would have won that, too. Maybe in 2005...

They should have nominated James Woods. He was WAY better than Sam Jackson. Mike Toreno is the best character in the game.

His voice really made his character seem the way he really acts. Jumpy.

Young Malay didn't win because his voice acting was rubbish. Samuel L. Jackson did a much better job than he did. Toreno, Officer Tenpenny, and the truth had the best voice work out of all of them, in my opinion.

And spike can piss off. I didn't watch the show because last years show was a slap in the face to the gaming industry, and from what I hear so was this year.

1up all the way.

Toreno was just hilarious in most of his scenes in the game. The way James Woods delivered his lines was perfect.

Maybe they'll nominated James Woods in G-foria.
