RELEASE DATE: 12/11/2010
Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think its appropriate to condescend your audience. I have issues with the continued references to gamers as stoners and perverts. And, what was with all the swearing? It seemed forced and was missed by the censors. I realize Spike Network is trying to appeal to their demographic but shouldn’t they want to broaden their audience? Award shows have the potential to draw Super Bowl-size television ratings. Sadly, the VGAs are just not there yet and I fear, they never will be if they keep up these antics.
- Annalynne McCord, Naomi on the 90210 reboot, announces Thor: God of Thunder which I know has an original story line and is really hoping to bypass the movie-game curse.
