2014 DICE Awards Recap

Dice AwardsThe 2014 DICE Awards were held in Las Vegas, Nevada on Thursday night as the peak of the annual D.I.C.E (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Summit.

At the 17th annual event, Naughty Dog received an astonishing 13 nominations at the event for The Last of Us. The game took home nine of the 13 awards it was nominated for. Safe to say it was a successful night for Naughty Dog, and the The Last of Us team.
