2011 VGA nominees announced

Spike TV VGAs

Spike TV has announced its nominees for the 2011 VGA awards, and categories include Studio of the Year Best Original Game, Most Anticipated Game, and of course Game of the Year.

Spike TV also announced the creation of its first ever Video Game Hall of Fame Award.

This award will recognize the most memorable and innovative video game franchises in history. The first game to receive the honor is Legend of Zelda, which is described as one of the most influential and beloved gaming franchises of all time.

“It is only natural to start with ‘Zelda,’” said Geoff Keighley, executive in charge, publisher relations, Spike.

“‘The Legend of Zelda’ is a franchise that inspired many of us to see the potential of games when it debuted 25 years ago, one that has successfully transitioned from one game console generation to the next and has continually shown the narrative and artistic potential of the medium.”
