I know what you’re going to say… “Who cares?” Well, the Video Game Awards on Spike TV are certainly not the bastion of video game awards. In fact, I personally think very little of them and would easily call it a farce. However! This is a special occasion. Besides the two games being very well embedded into our website’s history, who would have thought that not just one, but two JRPGs would even be included in the picks, let alone be up for nominations.

We’re just happy the games have gotten this much level of exposure, and while I may be biased when I say this, I truly believe they deserve it. These two games are a class act when it comes to RPGs. So I simply ask and not beg as a fan: Vote for Xenoblade under the category of ‘Best RPG‘, and Xenoblade or Last Story under the category of ‘Best Wii/Wii U Game (in my opinion both games were great).

So before you simply brush it off, we simply ask that you vote. Though we do ask that you don’t get angry over it if neither title wins in this year’s VGA. This is simple, good fun and we’re just hoping for the best. As the saying goes, “every vote counts”.

Good luck to Xenoblade & The Last Story! Even if they don’t win we all know they’re fantastic titles that deserved the localization and the praise that they have gotten; no question there.

The Video Game Awards will premiere live on Spike TV on December 7th, 2012 at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT.

    I agree that the Spike Video Game Awards are a farce (their only benefits being the new teaser trailers released), but it is very exciting to see both of these games nominated in the show, despite the difficulty Japanese made RPGs typically suffer.

    Exposure is exposure regardless where it comes from.  I agree…go to your local library and get on every computer and vote for these games if you want to see more like them in the future.

  • This is the spike video game awards. As if anything J would win. Voted for them but I don’t see any jrpg winning anything on that show.

    Voted for Xenoblade Chronicles yesterday on both best Wii game and best Wii/Wii-U game.

  • Why aren’t the Wii and Wii U their own separate categories?

  • Also, why the heck is NSMB2 the only 3DS title nominated for Best Handheld?  There were so many better 3DS games this year, like Kid Icarus: Uprising and Resident Evil: Revelations.  Jeez, this really is a joke!

    • Don’t forget Code of Princess and Virtue’s Last Reward.

    • Exactly my point.

    • Honestly, the handheld section should not have been so compressed like that. Does it take that much more time to make DS, 3DS, Vita, and mobile sections or something? Seriously, by doing that they cut out so many other choices. Would’ve loved to have picked Virtue’s Last Reward as best game of a category.

    I wonder if there’s anyone who really takes the VGAs at all seriously. Regardless, voted for XB.

    • InsaneChronos

      Why would you vote for Monado then, if you not taking the VGA seriously?

    • shinpichu

       Just because.
