2014 Game Awards Winners and World Premiere Trailers

Well, it’s that time of the year again.

Time for what?

The Video Game Awards

The what?

The Video Game Awards.

You mean the over the top, horrible, awards ceremony that Spike finally gave up on years ago?

Exactly.

They’re still around?

Yup.

It’s December. It’s time for the 2014 Game Awards, formerly known as the Spike Video Game Awards. The award show that everyone loved to hate until they stopped airing on television in 2012. Contrary to popular opinion, the awards show didn’t just go away when Spike finally pulled the plug. It is now on the internet, streaming on Twitch, YouTube, and Xbox consoles.

Once gamers were able to look past the shiny veneer of horribly manufactured skits, the tea-bagging Call of Duty machismo, scantily clad eye candy, the high-fiving jock presenters, and the overly raucous hired audience, they would see there was actually something special there. Beneath the thick layer of bad, was something the gaming industry needed: a chance for all of the hard work of the programmers, artists, and performers to be appreciated. This was an opportunity for everyone to get together and celebrate the art.

Yes, art.

You won’t find any applause signs or dude-bros here. All I have for you are the awards. And if you stay with me ’til the end, you’ll find the real reason most people tuned in to the Spike Video Game Awards: world premieres of trailers for upcoming games.

So without further ado, here are the nominees and winners for the 2014 Game Awards.

High five!
