Those wins include: Game Informer Best of Show; Electric Playground Best of E3; PC Gamer Most Valuable Game; Now Gamer Best Graphics and Tweaktown Best Game of E3.
The winner of the E3 Game Critic Award for Best Action Game will be announced on Tuesday, 26th June. The awards are determined by an independent panel of 35 North American media outlets tasked with picking out the games that will “shape the future of interactive entertainment”.
