The 2012 VGAs crowned co-op, not competitive

A Co-Op Game Won Best Multiplayer Game of the Year

In a world dominated by the Call of Duties, Battlefields, and Halos of competitive multiplayer - it was refreshing to see this year's Spike TV VGAs Multiplayer Game of the Year didn't go to a game based on competitive multiplayer, but rather to a game that solely support co-op gameplay in Borderlands 2.  The game also took home an award for Best Shooter.
