Fourteenth Annual DICE Winners

The fourteen annual DICE awards have come and gone and we have the list of winners for you. Looks like Mass Effect came out a huge winner and took the Game of the Year award, among other awards. I’m a bit sad to see the lack of Dragon Age: Origins on this list but happy to see that Mass Effect, Heavy Rain, Rock Band 3 and other games are getting the credit that they deserve.

This is the award show that gamers need to be watching instead of a certain gaming award show that is broadcast on a certain TV station that has content that we can see online anyway (among other tasteless content that is shown on said awards show). I’m just saying.
