Gaming is a matter of personal choice: some people adore beat'em'ups, others long winded adventures that never see a punch thrown.

But sometimes respect must be paid where it's due, with nods of approval and slaps on the back offered to those studios who have made a particularly excellent beat'em'up, or an extra detailed long winded adventure.

Which is exactly what happened at this year's DICE gaming awards.
