Can The Game Awards Become The Oscars Of Video Games?
Geoff Keighley's new video game awards show The Game Awards debuts in Vegas Friday. Can it rise above its predecessors and become a gala event?By Matt Picht | December 3, 2014
For every big entertainment industry, there’s a big red-carpet night. But despite several attempts, the billion-dollar video game industry hasn’t been able to come up with a gala event.
But maybe that's about to change. Gaming TV personality Geoff Keighley is bankrolling a new award show, dubbed simply "The Game Awards," which promises "a new night to celebrate excellence in gaming."
Keighley’s no stranger to running an award show — he previously hosted Spike TV’s lackluster VGA and VGX video game award shows.
