Seems like the Grammy awards (music) and the Video Game Awards both have much in common in my opinion. For one, they're both not representative of the best the industry has to offer. The smaller, independents often times don't enter the conversation and as in most industries, money and advertising dollars seem to dictate the awards and content within. I know I've seen much talk about the VGAs in this regard but it dawned on me this AM that the Grammys have become kinda the same deal. I used to care more about the awards but now I realize that mostly just the big company released albums/songs are winners. The VGAs obviously seem to put more emphasis on the advertising of future games (game trailers) but I've also noticed that winners are usually just the big hitters. Hey, if a recent Call of Duty title is an award discussion... prob going to lose some integrity. There were a few gems however with the 2013 Grammy awards and I want to acknowledge them. Glad to see Steve Martin and Edie Brickell win Best American Roots Song for their instant classic Love Has Come For You. Well deserved (made my list of 2013 favorites). And best compilation went to Sound City: Reel to Reel.
