You’d think a show that’s packed with celebrities, new game announcements and awesome trailers would draw a pretty sizable crowd – well, apparently that’s not the case at all.
According to Variety’s own ratings specialist Rick Kissell, the VGA’s viewing numbers have been consistently declining over 4 years. 627,000 people watched the show, and though that might sound like a lot, it’s actually a 3% drop from last years VGA’s. Though Kissell expects the numbers to increase slightly thanks to DVR viewings, it still becomes apparent that the Video Game Awards are slowly declining in popularity.
To be honest, it’s probably because you were all hanging out in the RipTen VGA live blog and watching the trailers here, right?
