This is not the first time Naughty Dog sweeps at the D.I.C.E Awards - an event that is widely regarded as the Oscars of gaming. You may recall a little game called Uncharted 2: Among Thieves that conquered the ceremony back in 2010 with 10 awards of its own. The folks at Naughty Dog may need to look into installing a trophy room, that is, if they haven't already.
