The 'Game of the Decade' award went to Half Life 2. Check out a quote from Telltale Games below after their four awards, which included 'Studio of The Year'.
"The headroom right now is in character interaction, and interacting with them in a way in which you’re not shooting them or jumping over them or stepping on their head. There’s really not a lot of people pushing in that direction … More sophisticated characters, and characters who are intelligent, are going to change games and make games more accessible to more people. Everybody loves a good story. Not everybody loves to blow everything up," said Telltale co-founder Dan Connors.
