Posted on February 07, 2013 by Drew Bergmark

Three weeks ago, the nominations for the 16th Annual DICE Awards were revealed and anxiously the developers have been waiting to find out if they won or not. Tonight from Las Vegas, the award show was streamed thanks to Machinima. Stockpiled into ninety minutes of awards giving and drunken bromance, the award show was pretty entertaining after getting the audience excited for what everyone was there for: the best game of 2012. From the awesome award bridge music to the montages, there were definitely a lot of little quips for gamers to enjoy. Everyone who is reading this doesn't care about what I have to say so let's just get into the list of winners:

  • Game of the Year: Journey

I'm looking forward to the next ten months for what developers, independent and corporately supported, will be able to offer gamers around the world.
