The Walking Dead game, made by Telltale Games, won.

Well, I gotta say, it deserved it.

a zombie game? really? =/
just for that reason i have to disagree whit the winning title.
there is nothing original about zombies (except that flash game where you do experiments on zombies in a lab. xD )

You DO know that The Walking Dead actually isn't a typical zombie game, right?

Anyways, was I the only one surprised when Lorne Balfe made an unannounced appearance and combined the soundtracks for The Walking Dead, Mass Effect, Journey, Dishonored, and ACIII into one huge homage?

All genres have been used, therefore by your logic no games are original. I'd rather judge a game based on gameplay than the genre, and The Walking Dead has amazing gameplay.

that you call it a genre proof to me that there are to much zombie games already.
i.e. nothing original.

and indeed most games are not original anymore. but there is a difference between a over used and over rated concept (zombies). and redoing something that is done.
it's like super mario wins the game of the year.... that over rated and over used aswell.
(mario on it's own also isn't a genre ;) )

If you want to get technical, fine. Zombies is a sub-genre (search it up). The genre of that game is horror/action/adventure. Mario isn't a genre, it's the title and name of the character. The Mario games have tons of genres though.

Except for the fact that most zombie games are shooters, twin-stick, first person, or otherwise. Meanwhile, Walking Dead is a story-driven game that focuses more on human conflict, such as in Episode 2 of the game.

Well, just because it's a zombie game, doesn't mean it's still good. If you hadn't noticed, The Walking Dead won the Game of the Year. There's a REASON that it won.

What game is actually original anyways?
