You forgot Half-Life 2 as game of the decade (Ha!) I always hate Spike's awards. Mainly because the games that do deserve to be up there never do. (basically anything Nintendo will NEVER win outside of Best Wii game) Out of that list I can see one game that should be up there (Journey) it's nice to see the games that were universally hated on (Mass Effect 3) won over a game that was called 'RPG of this generation' (Xenoblade Chronicles. Which was out in America in 2012 which is where it goes from.) is most places.

I've yet to play it. Have only heard good things about it. I just don't follow the TV series it's based on.

I think it's based more on the comics than the TV series, but you've got to play it, it's totally deserving of the title game of the year.

It is an amazing game, so many possible paths you can take through the entire game, adds loads of replayability To me its just as good and exciting as the TV show.

WOW Walking Dead!!! Have to say it is an amazing game, I cant think of no recent story in gaming that grips you like that one and is as emotional charged. Well done Telltale Games, you beat off the big boys! :)

Telltale Games put alot of effort into this game and they are rightfully collecting the rewards for an outstanding game. Roll on the walking dead 2!

Loved the game, but hopefully next time they deliver to the time-scale they announced. Saying that if they need just a little more time to bring out another with the same quality and story telling of the first i won't complain!

would Like to have seen FIFA 13 as the top sports title but that's just because im a football man, the Woking dead game though is fully deserving of game of the the year though, it is simply incredible!

Spike is an American awards show so the Best Sports Game will most likely always be NBA2K Whatever or Madden Whatever. Its just the way these things go.

I like the fact they honour the best voice performers, when done well the acting and music in games is potentially as good as that in films/TV and should be recognised.
