The seventeenth D.I.C.E. Summit Awards were held last night in Las Vegas and Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic adventure The Last of Us dominated proceedings by taking home an incredible ten trophies. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V only managed to scoop one award for Outstanding Achievement in Gameplay Engineering which seems a bit odd considering it was easily one of the most popular and critically acclaimed games of 2013.

Other highlights on the awards list include Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons winning Downloadable Game of the Year and Forza Motorsport 5 edging out Gran Turismo 6 in the Racing Game of the Year category.
