The 10th Annual Video Game Awards were broadcast last night on Spike TV, and we’ve now got the full list of winners from the ceremony.  The Walking Dead: The Game (which I’ve heard nothing but great things about) came away with the Game of the Year award and Best Adapted Video Game, while Halo 4 and Journey won Best Xbox 360 Game and Best PS3 Game, respectively, and Mass Effect 3 didn’t walk away empty handed as it won Best RPG.  Borderlands 2 took home two trophies, landing both the Best Shooter and Best Multi-Player Game awards, and obviously Grand Theft Auto V won Most Anticipated Game.

    Remember, this is just my OPINION, but after reviewing all the facts myself, mass effect 3 does not deserve to be on this list. Also, TWD is not the best game of 2012. I’m just speculating, but do you think that TWD paid vga to make it number 1?

    Wow what a slow year for games. Glad skyrim and dark souls are still entertaining.

    How Michael Mando (Vaas in Far Cry 3) didn’t win best performance from male is beyond me! One of the best voice performances in a game of all time, I think the game itself is a worthy winner of GOTY too!
