Best of gamescom Winners

OK. So we're not live at gamescom like we usually are for these big industry events. Sorry. We're on the FBI no-fly list Our passports expired. But we did manage to bang out a ton of coverage remotely, which you can see here. And even though gamescom isn't over yet, some industry "experts" got together to pick out the very best of the best on display at the event in Cologne, Germany.

Here are the winners:

  • Best in Show: Battlefield 3
  • Best Hardware: PlayStation Vita
  • Best Console Game: FIFA 12 (Seriously? Well, gamescom IS in Europe)
  • Best Mobile Game: Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • Best Online Game: Star Wars: The Old Republic
  • Best PC Game: Diablo III
  • Best Browser Game: The Sims Social
  • Best Family Game: Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster

While we're not at all surprised that Battlefield 3 takes the cake, we're scratching our heads as to how FIFA 12 beat out every other console game packed into gamescom. My guess? This shit is fixed.
