not bad :) the awards seem pretty good, way more logical than those stupid spike tv awards from awhile ago.

Yes, much better than SpikeTV's awards. they made little sense in reality.

wtf is spike tv? lol...

yea, good call koopa. I didnt see pandora tommorrow up there for anything..is that cause i didnt qualify for the end of the year, r like, what up with that? i mean, KOTOR was last summer...so, when is the year for this over?

NM, best innovation, pandora multiplayer....i thought i read rainbow six multiplayer...lol. kool beans anyhow. The spike tv awards didnt make any sense...these however, are a good call.

I heard htis was the fourth annual gphria, but the other ones werent advertised as much.

IS gphria establishing itself as a agood awards show for games!?!?!? (unlike that joke, spike tv awards...)

I agree with all those except...

Best Soundtrack
Tony Hawk's Underground (Activision)

Are they serious? I mean, I don't know what's better, but Tony Hawk series has had awful soundtracks since THPS3. I mean, what is AC/DC (or whoever it is) doing in a Skateboarding game? I'll stick with my custom soundtracks.

Nice to see Pandora Tomorrow, and Knights of the Old Republic get good recognition, also Ninja Gaiden. As said, these make alot more sense than those awful Spike TV awards.

I had a hard time forcing myself to watch it.

Yeah, same here. I hated it, I watched it for a few minutes then went back to playing Doom3. Every host at G4 should be shot or at least fired. They are all frickin morons. I can't watch one of their shows without grinding my teeth. TechTv on the other hand was great. damn comcast.

Oops, G4. Sorry, I'm falling asleep.

G3? What the hell is G3? :p

I do agree that all the G4 hosts suck, but I think the awards show was fairly well done. What else would you want other than celebrities presenting awards? Some average joe shmoe? I rather would have seen people in the gaming industry, but that still doesn't make me not want to watch.
