Dragon Age Inquisition may have taken Game of The Year at last night's 18th annual DICE Awards, but how about Shadow of Mordor winning for Outstanding Achievement In Story? The scripted story wasn't so hot, but if they were judging by the stories that emerged as players sparred with enemies who became tougher through the game's Nemesis system? Then, well-deserved!
