Vote today for PlayStation’s 17 VGA Nominees

Spike Video Game Awards 2009

As the saying goes, “It’s an honor just to be nominated.” If that’s the case, then we here at PlayStation are pretty well honored; The 2009 Video Game Awards nominees have just been announced, and Sony Computer Entertainment is up for 17 awards, more than any other publisher! UNCHARTED 2 leads all games with a record eight nominations, including GAME OF THE YEAR. See below for the full list of SCE titles and what award they’re up for.

But going back to that saying – being honored is nice, but winning is better. Fortunately, the decision isn’t left up to a shadowy cabal of Illuminati; for the first time ever, gamers from around the world get to vote for the victors between now and Saturday, December 12th. Hat in hand, we kindly ask you to vote for your favorite PlayStation games on Spike’s VGAs site.

In honor of our record number of VGA nominations, we’re currently planning a viewing party near the LA studios where the VGAs will be broadcast live to the world. We might even be able to get some of you fine readers into the event itself… So vote now, and stay tuned for more details here on the PlayStation.Blog!

If you’re even bothering with voting, keep in mind that you can click on the “WRITE IN” option to add your choice to the nomination instead of the garbage ones they have.

I love how the PS3 Game of the Year nominees are all PS3 exclusives, but looking at the X360, 2 are. Batman is a multi-platform game and L4D2 is available on PC. lulz, Microsoft fails at getting good exclusive titles.

Voted Uncharted 2 for many categories! So how do one of us lucky blog readers get to attend VGA? This sounds so cool and fun!

Sorry Demon’s Souls is GOTY simple as that. Fresh IP with new bounds in online and renewal of the classic dungeon crawler. COME ON!

I don’t really care about the VGAs but if that’s another way for people to see how awesome PS3 is, I’ll vote for sure. I may even watch!

I guess I should buy Uncharted 2, but I just really couldn’t connect with the first one. I’ll keep waiting until after the price drops on ebay a bit further…probably after Christmas.

Killzone 2 doesn’t deserve to be GOTY. The controls felt awful and clunky. The character feels like controlling a slow-moving tank.

MW2 – Multiplayer game of the year
Uncharted 2 – Adventure game of the year
Demon’s Souls – RPG of the year
Killzone 2 – Best FPS with bad controls of the year

p.s. PS3 needs cross game voice chat, enough is enough.

U2 and K2 all the way and Killzone 2 got shafted on not being nominated for GOTY even though everyone and their dog knows U2 is gonna win!!! :P :D

I think Uncharted 2 should definitely win Game of the Year.

Modern Warfare 2 is great, but I think Naughty Dog deserves it way more than Infinity Ward.
