Graphic Adventure of the Year - Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box
If we offered a "Most Improved" category, Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box would surely have won it. Of course, the first game was excellent, so that speaks volumes about the second installment. While one would expect the sequel for a game like Professor Layton to be a regurgitation of the first with a different story and slightly altered puzzles, this was not the case. The Diabolical Box greatly improved on the first Layton, such as providing "scratch paper" for the player, and removing the tedious backtracking. While there wasn't much competition in this category in terms of quality, Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (Director's Cut) gave Layton a run for his hint coins, but, in the end, we went with the originial title over the remake.
