See? The Last of Us was the best game to come out in 2013.

Told ya.


The D.I.C.E. Summit (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) is a multi-day industry event held by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, and is the closest thing the video games industry gets to an awards show that actually matters, along with the GDC Awards (Game Developers Conference). Both the GDC and DICE awards are voted on not by journalists, but the developers themselves - giving the whole thing an air of authenticity that Spike's VGAs can't quite muster.

The big news from last night is that The Last of Us cleaned up big time, taking home 10 awards - Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction, Outstanding Innovation in Gaming, Adventure Game of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in Sound Design, Outstanding Achievement in Story, Outstanding Character Performance, Outstanding Achievement in Animation, Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction, Outstanding Achivement in Visual Engineering and Game of the Year.
