Sony And Nintendo Headline E3 2016's Game Critics Award Winners

Now that the dust has settled on E3 2016, the show’s Game Critics Awards have been announced after much deliberation, and Sony, Horizon Zero Dawn and Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild emerged as the big winners.

Collating members from 40 different media outlets, the awards represent a conclusive overview of E3 2016, and it’s hardly surprising that Breath of the Wild clinched three awards in total: Best of Show, Best Console Game, and Best Action/Adventure Game.

Horizon Zero Dawn, meanwhile, nabbed Best Original Game – Guerrilla Games’ new IP is one of the few to break the mould in the open-world genre – whereas Sony and Nintendo ranked highly in the publisher awards.
