The Last of Us Wins E3 Game Critics Awards

Posted on Tuesday, June 26 @ 16:08:50 Eastern by


Once again, the collective Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2012 have been revealed. The Last of Us won five of the categories, while Dance Central 3, Halo 4, Watch_Dogs, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown took two each. The majority of wins when to Sony (7) and Microsoft (4), with Nintendo only receiving 1 award.

Compared to our own Best of E3 Awards, which are not based on any categories this year, we also gave commendations to other games that were not given a Game Critics Award, including:
Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2, Dead Space 3, Assassin's Creed III, Beyond: Two Souls, Resident Evil 6, SimCity, Dishonored, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Persona 4: Arena, and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.
Yeah, that's a lot...

I'm not saying that the Game Critics Awards lack importance, but I think they might need to reconsider their categorical awards so that all these awesome games aren't ignored.
