It really deserved to win, and by a clear margin too. Congratulations to the ND team.

The fact that The Walking Dead wasn't nominated is a ridiculous omission.

@Matt
Weren't these awards for games that came out in 2013? I guess season 2 might have arrived a bit late to be included in the nominations, or perhaps wont count until all the episodes have arrived.
