Ars Technica - Rethinking how we give out gaming’s “academy awards”.
Take the "Best Downloadable Game" award. This category might have made sense once, when downloadable games were generally the smaller, less ambitious cousins to the AAA games getting retail release. But things have changed. Two of the games in this category this year, The Walking Dead and Journey, were up for Game of the Year, proving downloadable games don't need to be set aside to get recognition anymore. And while Journey was named the best game of the year, somehow The Walking Dead was the best one you could download. Figure that one out.
