Way back in the formative years of the Buttonmashing.com, I subjected myself to one of the first Spike TV Video Game Awards shows. It was terrible. I’ve had little or no interest in the show since, but for some reason, I feel like punishing myself for some unseen crime and decided to watch the VGAs, at least for as long as I can take it.
It started off disastrously, with a weird thing with Jack Black in bed with an Xbox 360 and a PS3. I almost gave up before it got started.
I won’t be live-blogging it, but I will chime in occasionally when something particularly egregious happens.
Of course, if you really hate yourself, you can follow Joystiq’s live blog here.
9:29 – Mike Tyson and Peter Moore on the stage at the same time. The Apocalypse is upon us. Tyson wants us to, “Decide whosthe the real Kingth” is.
9:40 – Say what you will about Jack Bauer (I mean Kiefer Sutherland), he has a voice made for video games. Mrs. Buttonmasher concurs.
10:30 – Alright, I think I’ve seen enough. Handing the remote over to the missus. Thank you, Spike, for not totally disgusting me.
