Spike TV has announced the nominees for the 2008 Video Game Awards, which will be handed out this year on December 14.
Along with the standard "Best" lists, categories for this year's awards include "Big Name In The Game" (both male and female), "Studio of the Year," "Independent Game Fueled By Dew" (as opposed to games fueled by things like determined optimism, creativity and hard work) and a user-selected "Most Anticipated Game." Ten brand new games will also make their world premieres as part of this year's VGAs, as every Wednesday leading up to the event, "Spike will go live with amazing premieres debuting at the VGA."
The show will air live on Spike TV at 9 pm on December 14, featuring a performance by none other than 50 Cent and the presentation of a special Gamer God award to Spore creator Will Wright. For a full list of nominees, and to cast your vote for the one game you just can't get to get your paws on, check out Spike's official Video Game Awards website.
