Here at Joystiq, we've already talked about G4TV's attempts to catch gamers' attention and MTV's tentative forays into games television. GamerGod have gone one further and put the two head-to-head, with the resulting conclusion leaving MTV as the winner. Music television beating out a games channel? It seems so.

One of MTV's strong points, identified by GamerGod, is the small amount of scheduled programming dedicated to games as opposed to a full-time 24/7 gaming channel. While it's true that gamers usually prefer to game rather than watch TV, it seems that this signifies the death of dedicated gaming channels as a concept, something that channels like G4TV would rather not hear.
