Spike hosted the 2009 Video Game Awards last night, with the top award for game of the year going to PlayStation’s Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Since I’m not much of a fan of game awards though, I won’t get much into that.

What I will talk about though are the new game trailers that debuted during the show.

Among the trailers, fans got a sneak peek at Crackdown 2, Medal of Honor, Tron: Evolution, Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, The Force Unleashed 2, and of course, Halo: Reach.

The only real disappointment, at least in my mind, was Tron: Evolution, which looked kind of cheesy and like it was lifting a lot of what we’ve seen from other previous Tron games, including the old arcade titles, without investing a lot of new edge into the concept.

On the bright side though the other trailers were pretty awesome. Here are three of my favorites, and you can also check out the first Halo: Reach trailer on the website.

W. Andrew Powell lives, sleeps, eats, and breaths movies and entertainment. Since launching The GATE in 1999 Andrew has enjoyed being a pest to any publicist who would return his calls. In his "spare time," Andrew is also an avid photographer, and writes about leisure travel and hotels around the world.
