The Spike TV Video Game Awards are coming back, whether you want it or not. This year's show will air on December 10th at 8PM EST, and continues the show's long-running tradition of exciting game announcements and exclusive trailer reveals. There might also be a game award given, or two, depending on how much time remains after advertorials.

A few of the games we'll see previewed at the show include Metal Gear Solid: Rising, a brand new game from BioWare, and the premiere of the new Alan Wake game.

Although the VGAs will be home to the first trailers for these games, Spike TV notes that "the first visuals from some of these world premieres can be found exclusively in the December issue of Game Informer magazine." The magazine has already announced its cover story: an expose on the new Rainbow Six game.

In addition to these world premieres, Spike TV has also revealed their Game of the Year nominees, which includes one game that almost no one has played:

        The awards.. can't be taken seriously. But if it makes you feel better, COD didn't get nominated this year.

        yeah! I mean the first one didn't exactly blow me away, but there sure is potential there and I'm eager to see where they go with it.

          i really enjoyed the atmosphere, mood, story. i can see why people complained about it being repetitive but i would play a chapter a night and it didn't ever overstay its welcome.

        "Remedy’s said the decision to cancel the PC version of Alan Wake did not come from them.
        “I can’t really discuss that,” Remedy’s Markus Maki told CVG at GDC when asked why it was canned on PC. “I will say that it wasn’t a technological call. And it wasn’t made in Finland.”"
        I feel you man. Wanna go smack some Microsoft heads together?

      The trailers are nice and all, but I'd rather not sit through another round of "Here to present our next award, please welcome the cast of The Jersey Shore!"

      Alan Wake is just the downloadable Xbox Live Arcade game announced last E3. How disappointing.

        Downloadable Alan Wake game? What is this?

      Does "Brand new game from BioWare" mean new IP or could it be a sequel? They keep hinting at a Jade Empire sequel at some point. Can't wait to see what they do regardless.

        I'd guess it's just Dragon Age 3.

          I wanted to get Dragon Age 2, but with bad word of mouth and then the Steam/Origin thing... I think I'll just wait awhile. Really liked Dragon Age though.

      Batman is my game of the year so far.. Skyrim will be amazing for sure, but for everything like voice acting and overall production value its a winner in my book..

      I was willing to at least humor the spike tv awards. Then they gave the best voice acting award to Megan Fox for transformers 2 versus instead of the amazingly talented Emily Rose (voice of Elena Fisher, see her also on Haven) from uncharted 2......there are no words for this travesty.

        It's just a giant popularity contest with advertisements. It'd be a mistake to even humor them as anywhere in the same realm as credible.
