Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2017 Are Announced

One more year has passed and we’ve experienced the latest E3 with tons of content and new ideas. We have seen the upcoming titles and new plans for the future. It was exciting, that’s for sure. And the effects of the event are still alive appearently as we still talk about the exhibitions and new titles.

One another important event which is connected to E3 is the Game Critics Awards. The list of award winning games is announced recently and we have some good surprises on it. Here is the full list :

Best Independent Game: The Artful Escape

Even though we can say that an award called “Best PC Game” is huge, we can pretty easily say that the real winner is Nintendo. By getting three awards for its title, Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo stands out between all the others. Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbids Battle Kingdom is second with two awards.

Destiny 2 gets the Best PC Game award and it is going to be an important deal for the title and the devs for sure. And the Best Online Multiplayer Game award goes to Star Wars Battlefront II which is not a surprise as it was one of the most anticipated online games of E3.

Other than these, it is good to see that a title like Wolfenstein is in the list. And for the hardware awards, it is of course not a surprise that the monster Xbox One X gets the best Hardware/Perpheral award. We will be probably hearing more from titles like Destiny 2 for getting awards. And we will be looking forward to have more news about other games.

So, stay tuned for more fellas!
