"Borderlands 2" was picked as best shooter and multiplayer game, while "Dishonored" was awarded with the best action-adventure game trophy at the gaming extravaganza.

The ceremony honors outstanding achievements within the gaming industry over the past year.

"The Avengers" star and shooter fan Samuel L. Jackson hosted the 10th annual ceremony at Sony Pictures Studios -- his fourth time as the show's emcee.

This year's ceremony was scheduled to screen never-before-seen footage from such upcoming titles as "The Last Us," "South Park: The Stick of Truth" and "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2." It will also serve as the launch pad for newly announced game "The Phantom Pain."

For the first time, the VGAs were streamed on Xbox Live, the online service for Microsoft's Xbox 360 console. During the ceremony, online viewers could vote on show components such as what songs and clips would be played during the ceremony.
