Microsoft Game Studios Head Reacts to D.I.C.E. Awards: Praises The Last of Us and Forza

on February 7, 2014 2:35 PM

Microsoft Game Studios Honcho Phil Spencer has always been quite fair when talking about the competition, and he shown the same balanced attitude yesterday night, when he commented on the results of the D.I.C.E. Awards, from which Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us came out with a landslide victory made of ten top honors including Game of the Year.

First of all Spencer congratulated Turn 10 Studios on its Best Racing Game victory with Forza Motorsport 5:

Congrats to @Turn10Studios on their AIAS award for Best Racing Game with @ForzaMotorsport 5, great job.

Then he moved on to The Last of Us, singing the praise of the competitor’s game:

@Totalcrazyjoe14 @Official_AIAS Last of Us is a great game, it deserved the awards.

It’s always nice to see executives like Spencer talking in a positive way about the competition, especially considering that the fan base often doesn’t show this kind of fair approach. It’s be nice if, for once, fans learned from those that make the games they love.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
