The gang from 343 Industries, BioWare and Telltale Games stuck around in Los Angeles a second night to take home more honors, as Machinima's fourth Inside Gaming Awards handed out its hardware on Saturday, a day after the Video Game Awards.

I know this is a bit late, but I'm still pissed TWD won GOTY. That is not a game. No, thats a massive QTE with storytelling. I just can't fathom why it won.
