Spike VGA unaired Character of the Year acceptance speeches released

The Spike Video Game Awards aired little more than a week ago on Dec. 7 with almost 30 different accolades handed out to titles both big and small. Like most award shows, the night was full of acceptance speeches from developers, composers, actors, and in some cases, game characters themselves.

Borderlands 2's Claptrap took home the award for Character of the Year, but Spike has released the unaired acceptance speeches for the other four nominees. Check out the speech from Mass Effect's Commander Shepard above, and don't forget to watch Raul Menendez from Call of Duty: Black Ops, Halo 4's Master Chief and Connor of Assassin's Creed 3 fame below.
