The winners of the DICE Awards have been announced and it's quite the assorted pot. From indie to triple-A and from sequels to new IPs, a little bit of received an accolade.

Control wins in terms of most awards--coming out on top in four categories: Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction, Action Game of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition, and Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction.

That said, Remedy Entertainment's game didn't nab the coveted Game of the Year award. That went to Untitled Goose Game. House House's absurd game about an annoying goose also won Outstanding Achievement in Character and Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game.
