This announcement (Adobe Acrobat format) announces the winners of the 15th annual Interactive Achievement Awards (IAAs). The big winner this year was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda's RPG sequel:

The night’s big winner was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which grabbed Game of the Year honors and a total of five (5) awards in recognition of its excellent storytelling and extensive and immersive world. Other big winners included the blockbuster Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, which was recognized for technical achievements that brought the game to life, walked away with a total of three (3) IAAs. Likewise, the cross-over hit puzzle-platformer Portal 2 walked away with three (3) IAAs. The energetic motion game Fruit Ninja Kinect sliced and diced the competition to come out on top as Casual Game of the Year.

Again, your opinion on the presentation may vary, but that doesn't mean the content and story aren't there.

I never said they aren't there. I said they aren't very good, because, well, they are not. The plot lines are incredibly shallow, boring, and one dimensional. They are lacking in any degree of moral ambiguity, world cohesion, and meaningful player choice. When you compare then to something like Fallout: New Vegas, it's pretty painfully apparent that they aren't even in the same league (and F:NV isn't even the pinnacle of plot/storyline, although it's pretty good).

If you read through a book in the game, and it provides information on a quest or plot thereof, it's a part of the story, not "background. "

Sorry, you're wrong. It only becomes part of the story if it actually impacts how things play out in the game. If there is no actual in-game difference between doing the quest without reading the book, and doing the quest with reading the book (and there never is), then the book is completely superfluous to the plot. It's filler, even if it makes interesting reading.
