I still maintain that the audience was mostly gamers that follow ALL the gaming news and just watched for the premieres and to maybe watch a trainwreck or be hopeful and that Spike's normal audience doesn't care.

Most of Spike's normal audence are all 40+ year old males, according to their last survey. I'd be surprised if most of them were hardcore gamers...

Copied from my closed topic about Nintendo's announcement on VGX:

Alright, what I'm about to say is based on personal opinion about what happened before and after Nintendo's announcement at the VGX, so let's get to it:

The first thing you need to know is that VGX is something that most gamer shouldn't care about, especially Nintendo fans, because it's not a worldwide event like E3. Instead, it's a Spike TV's event, which mean it's based on US gaming market, which focuses on "M" rated games.

Now to the point, I've watched the first hour of the event, and yes even Nintendo's announcement, and to tell you the truth, I was disappointed just like most of the users here on NL, when Nintendo's announcement was Cranky Kong being available and a small gameplay of him in a new couple of stages. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the game is bad, in fact, the game looks better than before. I was expecting that Nintendo will be introducing some trailers like Bayonetta 2 or Monolith Soft's X, which both Wii U exclusives, but you know what? I'm glad they didn't, and for two reasons:

1- Why does Nintendo need to bring their big guns on an events that lasts merely 3 hours, and for an audience (There were no audience in VGX except two men who think that they're funny) who doesn't appreciate Nintendo's quality of game making? It was a wise move for Nintendo to just give a small glimpse of their upcoming game DKC:TF. Also, They have given Nintendo like 10-15 minute to talk about and the hosts already making fun of Reggie and his retro developers.

2- They (Nintendo) know that they will be overshadowed by other big developers, even if they released some footage of let's say Mario Kart 8 or at least one stage demo of Bayonetta 2, which I'm glad they didn't because it should be kept as a surprise. And the media is focused on the "next-gen" consoles more than Nintendo, that's why Nintendo didn't reveal trailers of big games.

Unfortunately, Most people sees VGX as a something that can be compared to the likes of E3, Tokyo Games Show (TGS), or even Gamescom. VGX is a not and it won't be a major gaming event, and it won't be like the events mentioned above. Some users were angry regarding Nintendo's announcement, which they shouldn't be, because the have expected too much from Nintendo, and ended up being disappointed.

If I've offended anyone, then I'm sorry. It's something that's needed to be removed from my chest.

Thanks for your reading.

Yeah, to be fair, I'll agree with a lot of people that it wasn't really a great show in the first place. It makes me want to dislike Geoff Keighly for being a jerk.

You hit the nail on the head my friend. Anyone who goes into a show like VGX expecting nuclear grade E3 reveals are almost as deluded as the people who think Nintendo will go third party

While I found Nintendo's showing to be entirely underwhelming, it's pretty simple why they did what they did. They have a game—Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freezeright about to come out that could use some publicity right about now and up to release. This is what is best for the Wii U today and in the very near future. Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. will basically sell themselves to a large number of people by simply releasing and are coming out later anyway. Anything Nintendo still hasn't announced will have plenty of opportunities in the future to receive greater or equivalent publicity in the future. They did what was best for themselves as a company trying to sell products.

I'm not against showing DKC:TF, but I really think some new Bayonetta 2 footage would've been great, just to get all the non-Nintendo gamers riled up.

Honestly, we need something like the Oscars, intelligent, classy, big-budget, voted by industry. This is just a condescending pile of poopdepoop.
We, as gamers, should not stand for this. We should demand more.

...people take the Oscars seriously? Every one I ever knew who watched it just watched it to make fun of it later.

Didn't Seth Mcfarlane host the Oscars once? As far as I'm concerned, that says enough about how far its fallen...
