Spike TV held their third annual video game awards show this last week and WoW was up for several awards. Also up for many awards were: Resident Evil 4 and King Kong.

This year, Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Snakes on a Plane) served as MC, delivering award show banter with a gaming twist and introducing performances by Missy Elliott and Def Leppard. 50 Cent, the first musical act to perform on the show, apparently needed no introduction.

Also appearing on the show were Snoop Dogg (last year's host), Carmen Electra, The Rock, Vin Diesel, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Carson Daly.

Based largely on the formula of the Video Music Awards on Spike's fellow Viacom network, MTV, the show featured plenty of celebrity presenters, several musical acts, and a less-than-formal approach to the show in general. Another thing it had in common with MTV's awards show, and most awards shows for that matter, was scripted banter between the presenters.
