The 2019 D.I.C.E recently concluded, handing out yet another set of accolades to last year’s biggest and best games. Unsurprisingly, the game that won most of the big Game of the Year Awards last year managed to win again, giving 2018’s God of War its latest trophy. The game won eight other awards, including Game Design, Game Direction , Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction, Outstanding Achievement in Character, awards for sound design and music and even story.

Fortnite – of course – won the award for Outstanding Achievement in Online Gameplay. Red Dead Redemption 2 won just a single award, for Outstanding Technical Achievement. If there was an award for most overhyped and deathly boring game, it would have won that one too, but alas. The D.I.C.E award winners were chosen by panel of video game industry experts and members of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. Here’s the full list of winners:
