The Video Game Awards did not live up to the hype Keighley built for it, but there were are few great moments that made the thing worth watching.
To me the best part was when Uncharted 2 received the prestigious GoTY honor, but to millions more it could have been when the world premiere trailer of Halo Reach was shown. Video after the read.
The title is still at least a year off so it was only fitting that Bungie did not show gameplay footage, but rather a brief in-game cutscene of what you can expect from the newest installment in the legendary Halo franchise. It looks great actually and you should expect Microsoft to hype this one up to the heavens.
Your lips are dry, drink water now.
