The awards show itself may lack meaning, but games publishers do like using the spectacle of the annual Spike VGAs to show off new announcements and debut more trailers for their hotly anticipated titles.
Annoyingly, as the awards are an MTV affair, all the trailers from the show are currently exclusive to GameTrailers until tomorrow and their habit of shittily transcoding everything they host has taken the sheen off most of what we have to report on today.
One exception however, is this new clip from Uncharted developer Naughty Dog, who have also released the debut trailer for their freshly announced game The Last of Us via their own media channels:
The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Abandoned cities are being reclaimed by nature and the remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
