Best of E3 Awards
I don’t go in for giving games numerical/alphabetical ranking in reviews, nor do I take seriously a journalist’s top choice awards. However, Game Informer just released their Best of E3 Awards list and there are four things that caught my eye. Destiny made the list for Best MMO. Is that game even an MMO? Is it anything more than Halo meets Borderlands meets ME3 (which admittedly is enough for many)? Second, Ori and the Blind Forest, the game that took the Best Platformer Award is being compared to Metroid and Castlevania? Third, Assassin’s Creed Unity didn’t win any awards, nor did Rainbow Six Siege, The Division, BF:Hardline, or even Sunset Overdrive, but Evolve did. Evolve took Best Multiplayer, Best Shooter, Best Multi-Platform, and Best In Show. Look at the list of games that didn’t win any awards and then consider what Evolve took.
What do you think about the Awards? Now that the dust has settled, what games are now on your radar? I would love to see the list of games people are looking forward to and especially plan on buying in 2014. I know that Zos and Blank even set up a Google document for the purpose.
