New Graphic Shows Where Yesterday’s VGX Was Most Popular


Well, that thing called VGX happened yesterday. While most think it was a rousing failure, some enjoyed the show. Apparently most of the globe decided to tune in at some point. VGX co-host Geoff Keighley just posted a new graphic that’s akin to a heat map indicating the regions that viewed the award show the most.

The obvious front-runners were North America and Europe with Latin America and Australia coming in strong as well. No specific viewership numbers have been published as of yet, but we’d be interested to see how many gamers spent their Saturday watching.

    The VGX is an embarrassment to the video game industry…

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      It’s a sign we need a market crash to happen again so devs get their heads back in the game.

      • whatever….

        the games aren’t the problem.. it’s the stupid immature presentation / dumb presenters / dumb writing that knows NOTHING about games……….

        • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

          Fair enough. What was I thinking?Joel McHale was horrible beyond words-he ruined everything. Though a few games related stuff shouldn’thave happened such as GTA V getting GOTY when it obviouslyshould hhave went to The Last of Us and the games could’ve had a bbigger impact to alleviate the awfully executedshow.

            Geoff is a bum to, isn’t he the brains behind the show? He is as much to blame as anyone else.

            Touché my friend.

  • Rinslowe

    I was hoping more along the lines of which games were more popular etc… Not; where were most people watching it.
    No news here. VGX is a dude bro’s event, only. Big deal.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    This year’s VGX was just painful. Hopefully, Spike will put it out of its misery.

  • Aiddon

    I get the feeling this is the last time we’ll have to put up with them. When Spike prefers to air reruns of COPs over your show, you KNOW you’re screwed

  • Synthetic Construct

    I would have rather watched Human Centipede 2 and A Serbian Film side by side than the Loiter Squad.

    No Man’s Sky was the only thing I liked.

    • No Man’s Sky looks phenomenal.
