Nominees Announced for Spike TV’s 2009 Video Game Awards!


Spike TV announced today the nominations for its 2009 Video Game Awards. Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2 and Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham Asylum scored multiple noms and are set to go head-to-severed head in the Game of the Year category. Gamers can vote in 28 cats by visiting vga.spike.com now and through Dec. 11.

Spike TV’s 2009 VGA Awards will air live on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 8 p.m. (7 Central). The show will feature plenty of stars and sneak peeks at upcoming games. To learn more, check out the following press release:

This year’s show features awards for the best games of 2009, plus amazing world premieres of the most anticipated games for 2010 and 2011.   And to add even more intrigue, almost all the world premieres will be ANNOUNCEMENTS of new, never-before-seen games.

Today we’re announcing our first premiere — HALO: REACH, a game that has been announced but never shown.  All of us at Spike are incredibly excited to be working with Bungie and Xbox to bring you the first-ever look at the VGAs.  At E3, Bungie’s Joe Staten announced that the game, a prequel to the Halo trilogy, is coming out in the Fall of 2010.  He also screened a brief teaser trailer that showed nothing more than the planet Reach from space.  At the VGAs you’ll finally get to see the world of Reach for the first time — and I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Over the next three weeks we will be sharing more details on the other world premieres right here on Spike.com and GameTrailers.com.  So please check back frequently to learn more about what we have planned for the show.  I can hardly wait to tell you about some of the other exciting surprises we’re planning with all the major game publishers. Publishers contributing exclusive new content to the VGAs include 2K, Activision, Disney Interactive Studios, Electronic Arts, LucasArts Entertainment, Microsoft Game Studios, THQ, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Until then, check out the nominees and vote for your favorites in all the categories!
