Right off the bat, let me say that I love video games. Not as much as my brother, maybe, who has been known to tell everyone he's going to bed, only to be discovered in his room at 6 a.m., bleary-eyed and surrounded by empty Dr. Pepper cans, death-gripping an Xbox controller. But I used to work in the video game industry, and therefore I have a high level of appreciation for both good games and the extremely creative and technically skilled individuals who make them.

But even I'm kind of surprised at how many famous names, both relevant and extraordinarily irrelevant, they got to turn up at the 2011 Spike TV Video Game Awards on Saturday night right here in L.A.
