What just happened? Hades has been picking up praise and awards for a while now, and it had a truly memorable night at the recent DICE Awards. The roguelike dungeon crawler walked away with five wins—more than any other game at the event—including the coveted "Game of the Year."

Having won the second-highest number of awards behind The Last of Us II at both The Game Awards and The Golden Joystick Awards, Hades dominated proceedings at the 24th annual DICE awards. It took three Outstanding Achievement awards (Game Direction, Game Design, Independent Game), along with Action Game of the Year and Game of the Year.

Hades has already won GOTY from BAFTA and SXSW, and is nominated in the same category at the Game Developers Choice awards, which takes place on July 21.

Elsewhere, the excellent Ghost of Tsushima won four awards, including Adventure Game of the Year, and while The Last of Us II didn't do as well as it has in the past, it still picked up two awards, as did Half-Life: Alyx.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Dreams, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the Final Fantasy VII Remake won one award.
