It pulled in the most nominations

Here we go again. When the Game Developers Choice Awards recently listed its nominees, CJ wondered if The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had another win left. Well, it might actually have two!

The finalists for the 21st annual D.I.C.E. Awards are out and Breath of the Wild is contending with the likes of Cuphead, Horizon Zero Dawn, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and Super Mario Odyssey for top honors. That said, Horizon Zero Dawn leads overall with ten nominations compared to Zelda's six.

We'll see how everything shakes out beginning February 22 at 8:00pm Pacific.
