Spike TV has announced today that its Video Game Awards 2005 will be hosted by actor and producer Samuel L. Jackson, who was a winner at last year’s show for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The show itself tapes on Friday, November 18 at the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles with the two-hour "games vs. games" extravaganza premiering on Spike TV Saturday, December 10.

In this year's Best Fighting Game category, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (Midway) has been nominated along with the following contenders: Fight Night Round 2 (Electronic Arts), Soul Calibur III (Namco Hometek Inc.), Tekken 5 (Namco Hometek Inc.), and Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower (Capcom).

In last year's Spike TV Video Game Awards 2004, Midway's Mortal Kombat: Deception took home the honors in the same Best Fighting Game category.

Head on over to GameSpot for a list of nominees and celebrity presenters at this year's Spike TV Video Game Awards.

Wait...Fighting game? Why can't anyone get it right? It's an Action/Adventure. Hate to say it but Soul Calibur 3 is probably gonna destroy the competition. Fight Night is not a fighter either, so it should really be just between SCIII, Darkstalkers and Tekken 5.

All im saying is that if MKSM wins that award it will completely discredit the spike tv judges and nominating staff.
