The Last of Us takes 'Game of the Year' at 2014 DICE Awards

Naughty Dog's grim post-apocalyptic adventure The Last of Us took Game of the Year honors at tonight's DICE Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada. Protagonist Joel's bag is packed full of trophies, as The Last of Us walked away with an impressive 10 wins out of its total 13 nominations.

The Last of Us was Adventure Game of the Year, while BioShock Infinite snatched up Action Game of the Year and another award for Original Musical Composition. Ellie, voiced by Ashley Johnson, won The Last of Us an award for Outstanding Character Performance and World of Tanks steamrolled the competition for Online Game of the Year.

The full list of awards has been stashed past the break. Congratulations to the winners (The Last of Us) and better luck next time to the losers (games that are not The Last of Us).
