Fallout 4 takes home another game of the year award – this time from the DICE awards.

The DICE Awards most closely mirror the Oscars in that those choosing the awards are members of the industry via the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.

Also nominated alongside Fallout 4 were The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Ori and the Blind Forest and Bloodborne.

“I want to thank you all for this award,” said creative director Todd Howard. “We cannot thank you enough for what this means to us, everybody at Bethesda and [Bethesda’s parent company] ZeniMax.”

Meanwhile, Bethesda is already hard at work on three other new “Bethesda-style” projects.
