On the VGAs this 2011

Skyrim deserved to win. I own a PS3 but I don't have the PS3 version of the game. I read the PS3 version is very buggy (almost unplayable) but despite that, I still think it deserves to win. The game itself is quite an achievement; literally an RPG that almost nearly never ends...

Now, on the comments that the show is immature....well, have you ever tried reading a gaming forum, or gamer comments online, or listened to gamers when playing against them on Live or PSN or elsewhere? Well, gamers are really immature; most of them. Maybe I'd include myself in that lot but it's probably really the nature of the hobby. So until that changes, well, there's always going to be in-jokes about teabagging, and it will never end. If you want a more mature hobby...take up painting or playing an instrument. Gaming is, for most people, really for the lulz, and it isn't going to change anytime soon. The subject matter itself of gaming is entertainment, and it can be pretty depraved or worse. If you've been gaming for years you'll see it in everything. It's just the way the hobby is. So just learn to live with it and enjoy it in a lighter mood, instead of taking it seriously and hoping scientists and thinkers will give us the time of day.

Or, avoid online communities altogether, and just play, for the love of the game.
