Surprising No One, Breath of the Wild dominates D.I.C.E. awards

In case you missed this year’s D.I.C.E. game awards, The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild won big this year. Taking home Game of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction, Outstanding Achievement in Game Design, and Adventure Game of the Year, Nintendo must be super happy. Also not surprising was PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds taking home a couple awards as well. Cuphead and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice rightly received awards, as both those titles were quite the achievements. I’m very surprised Divinity: Original Sin II wasn’t there for RPG of the Year, but big congratulations all around. The full list of awards is down below.
