The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) nominated more than 50 video games for the 19th annual D.I.C.E. Awards. And out of all these games, only 5 were nominated for the “Game of the Year” award: Bloodborne, Fallout 4, Ori and the Blind Forest, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and the Witcher 3.

Can you guess who won the much coveted “Game of the Year” award? Why, none other than Bethesda’s Fallout 4 open-world action role-playing video game that’s set in a post-apocalyptic Boston. It was the most important award Fallout 4 received, I wasn’t the only one. It received multiple awards, and so did these other titles.
