If you missed out on the 2016 DICE Awards yesterday we’ve gone ahead and compiled all of the big winners and moments of the night, including some adorable moments between Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro.

Bethesda’s Fallout 4 took home Game of the Year, besting Bloodborne, The Witcher 3 and Rise of the Tomb Raider, who were also nominated.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was inducted into the Hall of Fame by filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro. The pair also hosted the night’s Keynote Address, which is definitely worth a watch.

Shigeru Miyamoto, the creator of Mario and The Legend of Zelda, was honored with a well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.
