It Takes Two, GOTY at the DICE Awards 2022: all the winners

The prizes for the best games of 2021 are still being distributed. The DICE Awards 2022 have just revealed their winners and It Takes Two has risen as GOTY 2021. It also made it to The Game Awards and other awards, a sure sign that Hazelight’s co-op title has wowed players and juries around the world.


It’s not a minor thing. In other words, it is a major thing, paraphrasing a certain former president of the Government of Spain. He was up against titles of the quality of Deathloop, Inscryption, Ratchet & Clank: A Separate Dimension and Returnal. Below is the complete list of nominees and winners.
