Neil Patrick Harris is no stranger to videos games and so his hosting duties at Saturday’s Spike Video Game Awards should come as no shock. Hell, he even won Best Human Performance (Male) for his vocal work as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions!
Tricia Helfer, probably most well-known as ‘Six’ from Battlestar Galactica, won Best Human Performance (Female) for her vocal work in Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, which also won for Best PC Game.
