Today the The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences held the 17th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards honoring the the year’s finest achievements in video games. The Last of Us triumphed. Here's the full list of nominations and winners.
I was laughing so badly you should have seen Sesslers face. Naughty Dog award blocked everyone in the same category. Even GTA V didnt stand a chance.
I actually laughed a bit when it won even the innovation award. I did not expect that one.
Yeah i would have given that one to Tearaway. They are devs so they probably know better whats innovative for their industry then us.
I was surprised when it wasn't even nominated for music award....I mean that soundtrack was incredible.
I like how there's a PlayStation EXCLUSIVE in almost every category. .Beyond: Two Souls .Tearaway .Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch .The Last Of Us .Grand Turismo 6 .Resogun .Puppeteer .Rain .God Of War Ascension .MLB 13: The Show That's why I roll with PLAYSTATION!
After seeing then win the first 5 I just tuned out since I had feeling they were going to get GOTY. It's funny how no one stood a chance. Well deserved and I'm glad it's getting the attention is been receiving from the public and the gaming press. There is going to be a lot of pressure for Naughty Dog's next game.
Well, if they innovate and do something like ND did then they might stand a chance. Next time, I hope others developers will bring in their AA game and prove to us that they too are also innovated and raise the bar for others to follow.
Would love a link to see Sessler's reaction. Would you kindly?
Sorry we need to wait for the playback on twitch nobody giffed it.
Trophy unlocked....Legendary status achieved. Naughty Dog is on top of their game. Can't wait to see what Uncharted brings for PS4.
Well done Naughty Dog: Outstanding Achievement In Sound Design: The Last of Us Outstanding Achievement In Story: The Last of Us Outstanding Character Performance: The Last of Us - Ellie Outstanding Innovation in Gaming: The Last of Us Adventure Game of the Year: The Last of Us Outstanding Achievement In Animation: The Last of Us Outstanding Achievement In Art Direction: The Last of Us Outstanding Achievement In Visual Engineering: The Last of Us Outstanding Achievement In Game Direction: The Last of Us Game of the Year: The Last of Us
Makes sense to give it all of those except for maybe innovation but still truly a GOTY game worthy
They innovated in telling the story :) . No other game reached that level.
Now telling a story is inovative?
Nominated for 13 awards, and they won 10 of them. Truly Naughty Gods.
bu buuu buuuu ... its only 30fps .... being sarcastic It is fully deserving game of the year and all the awards it got :)
30fps is forgiveable, frame dips to below 20 is not.
The Last Of Us was hardly innovative. Animation is a toss between The Last Of Us and GTA V.
You need to get your eyes tested my friend lol
Ok what exactly is innovative about The Last Of Us besides the tangibility and intensity in the melee attacks?
plaZeHD "Animation is a toss between The Last Of Us and GTA V" I was referring to your comment above, 99% of people would agree that TLoU hands down annihilates GTV in the animation department. Have you even played TLoU?
Funny most of them have nothing to do with GAMING. But whatever I love Jak/Uncharted. Just think the Last of Us is a golden turd. Can't wait for actual Naughty Dog games though.
if you think art direction, visual engineering,sound design and animation have nothing to do with GAMING then I guess you believe Pong is the pinnacle of the medium.
Well deserved ND!
The awards keep coming.
best game ever..congrats ND
But this was the most overrated game of last year, with no innovation, right? Seems like all the people that make games seem to think otherwise.
I don't need to make games to know that TLoU isn't inovative. I just need to play the games that influenced TloU or know a bit about the history of the industry. You see, I'm no sheep and I rather experience what this industry has to offer and make my own mind about it.
I know right ? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I agree, it was hardly a game. It was an amazing interactive movie, but even Metal Gear Solid 4 (which was half cutscenes) creater Kojima said Video games aren't art. MGS4 is awesome btw because of the gameplay. Cutscenes are an addition, but should have no affect on quality of the actual game.
I really recommend to my xboys to get a PS3 just for this game
My kids years-Crash Bandicoot Teen years-Jack&Daxter Adult years-Uncharted&TLOU. ND has given me my best gaming moments of all my time on this earth. TLOU is my second favorite game of all time. OT:Congrats ND you guys deserve all the awards you can muster. http://i.imgur.com/JSBTl.gi...
Hey, does anyone by any chance have a video the awards show? I'd love to watch it! I didn't have the chance to because the internet was out where I was. :/
LOL, literally uploaded 3 minutes before I looked! http://www.youtube.com/watc... and http://n4g.com/news/1452886
Thank you so much! WATCHING!
Truly well deserved. No other game came close to the emotional impact TLOU delivered. Congratulations ND.
Good job SONY and NAUGHTY DOG. I'm proud of you.
Well deserved TLOU is one of the best gaming experiences ever! Such awesome fun gameplay - awesome stealth Such amazing & realistic environments to make you feel immersed And oh boy! What characters and story - Probably the best story told in a video game to date. Amazing game and well deserved.
ill give best story to xeno blade def not the last of us. but thats just me anyways and i seen better looking games as well.
i bet know one played xeno blade here ha fast to disagree i see
Great year for ND. Everything clicked. The perfect storm. Equally proud of all the nominations Puppeteer got! Such a hidden gem. Shoulda been a PS4 launch title. Seems like all the ps3 games released in the ps4 launch window got cannibalized, but it's nice they're still remembered. Even Beyond nabbed a few nominations. I wish NiNoKuni woulda won its category though instead of Diablo3. New IPs are the lifeblood, and good jrpgs are so rare.
Yet after winning all these awards. Some fool will come out his mother's basement, and say their not any good. Just because, he doesn't own's a Sony product.
I own Sony's product (actually on my third PS3 now - first one died, second one got stolen), amd yes, I enjoyed TLOU a lot... but it's not GOTY for me, personally, mostly because there's not much GAME to it in my opinion.
So happy for ND. Best game I've ever played. Also very happy that Beyond was at least nominated for several things.
Well this should tide fans over till the next awards
Absolutely well deserved. I can't even imagine what we'll see when they start showing us what they're doing on PS4.
Personally, The Last of Us is last generations' best game. However, Ni No Kuni and The Puppeteer should have been Playstation 4 launch games. At the very least, these incredibly important games should not have been released in the same year with The Last of Us. What do you think?
WOW NAUGHTY DOG destroyed the competition lol!!!!! It's not even funny how much better they are than everyone else right now SONY is lucky to have them!
They deserve al the praise. Great devs, really excited flr when they make a new ip.
