Hades Wins Game Of The Year At DICE Awards, See The Full List Here

It may be April 2021, but we’re not yet finished celebrating 2020’s games. The D.I.C.E. Awards (unrelated to Battlefield developer DICE) took place on April 22, and the 24th annual show awarded Hades with the overall Game of the Year Award.

Other titles nominated for Game of the Year include Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us Part II.

Greg Kasavin, the head of Hades developer Supergiant Games and former EIC here at GameSpot, reacted to the win on Twitter. He said, “This means so much, especially knowing it was chosen by a jury of our peers. We were incredibly fortunate to have been able to stick together as a small team and keep working on Hades last year, and we’re so grateful that it struck a chord like this.”

Hades also won for Outstanding Achievement in Game Design, Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction, Action Game of the Year, and Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game.

Some of the other notable winners from the awards show included Final Fantasy VII Remake (RPG of the Year), Ghost of Tsushima (Adventure Game of the Year), and The Last of Us Part II (Outstanding Achievement in Story).
