The nominees for the 2013 Game Developers Choice Awards are in, and it looks like Journey, Dishonored and The Walking Dead are leading. Hey, those were our favorite games too.

Journey took six nominations as the top favorite, in everything from Game of the Year to Best Design. Dishonored took four noms, also up for GOTY. In third with three nominations is our pick for Game of the Year, The Walking Dead. I'm glad to see that games like X-Com: Enemy Unknown, FTL, and The Unfinished Swan also got some love.
