Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead may very well be my choice for Game of the Year, because it’s a fine example of excellent storytelling in video games, and that’s something we don’t see terribly often. My runner up would be Dishonored, another story-driven game, and it would seem the fine folks at Spike would agree, as both have been nominated for Game of the Year alongside Journey, Mass Effect 3, and Assassin’s Creed III at the Spike VGAs. The good news doesn’t stop there, oh no sir, as Telltale has also been nominated for Best Studio, and The Walking Dead has received nominations in the Best Male (Dave Fennoy as Lee Everret), Best Female (Melissa Hutchison as Clementine), and Best Downloadable Game categories. Well deserved, I say.
The awards show goes live on Friday, December 7 at 9 PM EST. If you feel like unleashing your right to vote, you should definitely head on over to their website and start clicking on stuff.
