    Some good news for our beloved hobby:
    "LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - It's a hit-driven business given to flashy premieres and high-profile talent and now the video games business has gone fully Hollywood: it has its own red-carpet awards show"...

    If it ended up on G4, I could see this. Otherwise, it'd probably suck.

    Morgan, according to the news release this will air on The National Network, or TNN as it's listed on most cable systems.

    Which means it'll be shown in squish-o-vision so that we can be positive what show we're watching

    Yeah Jeff, no kidding [​IMG] ...and there'll probably be lots of "did you know?" trivial crap scrolling across the bottom of the screen.

    ...did you know that Dan stopped watching TNN...in 1999?

    I'm not sure I like some of the categories this show will have:

    Unfortunately, I'll probably watch it.

    What's worst? The new squish-o-vision TNN that has "pop" and jumps on every bandwagon, or the old TNN that featured shows like "Dallas" non-stop?

    All this means is that we'll get yet another "Game of the Year" reissue.

    This is excellent news. The world needs another awards show on TV. That way we can all argue about the nominees and when they pick the winners (i.e. the nominees who ponied up the most dough or had the best advertising campaign) we can all argue about that. What better news could there be for an internet discussion forum? Not to mention the spinoff discussions about how Max Payne was wearing last year's suit and the scandal of Lara Croft showing up with Sly Cooper.

    The show is a year away and some people are already trashing it. Unbelievable. [​IMG]
    Personally, I'll wait until it airs and then I'll voice my opinion.
