Spike TV has revealed the nominees for the Spike TV Video Game Awards 2010 today. BioWare's Mass Effect 2 looks like a big winner this year, with ten nominations. Red Dead Redemption trails behind with nine, and Halo Reach and Call of Duty: Black Ops each have seven.

The full list of nominations can be found after the jump, and our comments section is for complaining and such. Full disclosure: I'm on a panel of the VGA judges this year, and played my part by submitting my own list of nominees late last month.
