Wait since when do people ever care about the Spike Video game awards? Seriously haven't they been a complete joke since there inception? It's just a giant clusterf*** of gaming stereotypes and advertising.
Also to the TC why can't smaller indie game win game of the year? Just because you have millions of dollars behind you and have a giant team working to make a game doesn't mean a small group of people with a tiny budget and a great idea can't make an amazing game. The only difference is production quality.
