If you missed VGA 10
this past Friday, then you are kinda forever a loser. Okay, not really. But you did miss a memorable ceremony that celebrated ten years of the VGAs on Spike while giving us a glimpse of what's to come in 2013. Here are just some of the highlights.
Note: a list of all award-winners can be found right HERE.
Sam Jackson Gets Some Help from His Friends
Samuel L. Jackson made his return as host of VGA 10
and immediately we knew we were in for some memorable moments. We got things started with the cast of South Park: The Stick of Truth
along with a new friend who may or may not be a gigantic whale that is a vague metaphor for human obsession and pursuit of our passions.
Sam Jackson vs. The Undead
Quick, think of five things you love. If you're like us, two of those things were "Sam Jackson yelling" and "zombies." VGA 10
combined them in a segment that had Sam wishing he'd been dealing with those mother[expletive] snakes on his mother[expletive] plane instead.
The Last of Us World Premiere
After weeks of hype and hints, we finally got a look at the post-apocalyptic offering from Naughty Dog that pits two individuals against victims of an aggressive fungal virus as well as the uninfected survivors (who may be even more hostile).

The Friggin' D
Tenacious D – 2008 VGA host Jack Black and Kyle Gass – were on hand in support of their new album, Rize of the Fenix. They didn't disappoint, with the live audience and viewers at home bathing in the artificial sunlight generated by their rise from the ashes. ALL HAIL THE D.
