Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Best of E3 Award Winners

Posted on Friday, June 17 @ 13:00:00 Eastern by

Each year, GameRevolution sets out on a perilous quest filled with smelly nerds and temptress booth babes on a shark-infested E3 show floor, in order to bring our readers an unbiased, in-depth look at the hottest upcoming games across all major platforms. It’s our privilege and duty to inform the masses as to where they should spend their time and hard-earned money. We take that job very seriously, and have faced the seemingly impossible task of narrowing down the hundreds of titles on display at E3 2011 to the ten stand-out titles, which represent the very best of the best, the must-have, most-anticipated titles releasing over the course of the next couple years.

Read on in great faith that GameRevolution hath selected only the creamiest of the crop. I hereby bestow upon thee (in no particular order) our winners of our Best of E3 2011 Awards.



Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment of America
Developer: Naughty Dog
Release Date: 11/01/11

Excerpt: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception has a Herculean task at hand: Top its Game of the Year-winning predecessor, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. And it has to do it in all aspects of the game. From what we’ve experienced so far, it’s almost made a mockery of all other franchises and their natural progression from installment to installment. Believe it or not, this Uncharted is leaps and bounds better than the last.

Publisher: Square Enix
Developer: Crystal Dynamics
Release Date: TBA 2012

Excerpt: The game looks simply gorgeous, and so does Lara. I can't stress that enough—she's simply stunning. But it's because she seems more human than video game character. Cave and jungle environments are realistic, rivaling—and possibly beating—any other game on any console. But it’s the facial animations that really shine, especially the appearance of fear and pain written all over her face.

Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: Bioware
Release Date: 03/06/12

Excerpt: The Reapers are coming, their ships like black hands clawing at the remains of the universe. Your warnings have fallen on the deaf ears of the Citadel, who only now realize the need for all races to unite or fall as yet another failed attempt of evolution. But not even the combined strength of human, turian, salarian, and asari is enough. Only Shepard, true to his name, can bring the other races together to fight against their collective fate. That is his destiny, lest all be lost to the darkness beyond space itself.

Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Release Date: 11/11/11

Excerpt: Much of Skyrim is still under wraps – crafting systems, guilds, quest management, lockpicking, speech, character generation. I did see horses as a mount and a 3D map that can be accessed simply by zooming out at any time, though the full features of the mount and the map have been left unrevealed. But if what I saw is any indication, I have nothing to worry about.

Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: Digital Illusions CE (DICE)
Release Date: 10/25/11

Excerpt: It's more than evident that Battlefield 3 is aiming to be a top contender in the FPS genre through improvements, variety, balancing, while offering a game that appeals to both console and PC players and every playstyle in between, for the lone wolf or the team player. Come this fall, we’ll finally be able to see if DICE has succeeded in delivering what they've been promising. So far, it looks like they are well on their way.
