The winners of the 2014 DICE Awards were announced in Las Vegas last night. Presented by The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, the annual awards recognise brilliance in game design, with categories reflecting the breadth of the industry. 

Top dog was undoubtedly The Last of Us, which picked up a whopping ten gongs including Game of the Year, but there was plenty of Xbox stuff to celebrate too.

The brilliant Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons picked up Best Downloadable Game, while Grand Theft Auto V won Outstanding Achievement in Gameplay Engineering, XCOM: Enemy Within won Strategy / Simulation of the Year and BioShock Infinite won Action Game of the Year  and Outstanding Achievement in Musical Composition.

Meanwhile, Xbox One-exclusive Forza Motorsport 5 was the only exclusive next-gen title to win an award, picking up Racing Game of the Year. FIFA 14 won Sports Game of the Year and Injustice: Gods Among Us won Fighting Game of the Year.

Rockstar’s Sam Houser, Dan Houser and Leslie Benzies were inducted into the Hall of Fame, while legendary programmer and designer Eugene Jarvis picked up the Pioneer Award.
