The Game Critics Awards for E3 2014, as determined by 29 media outlets including Destructoid, have been announced. After seeing the nominations, it's no surprise that Turtle Rock's one-versus-four multiplayer shooter Evolve came away with the most wins (four), followed by Hello Games' three wins for its universe exploration title No Man's Sky. Here's the full list:

  • Best of Show: Evolve
  • Best Original Game: No Man's Sky
  • Best Console Game: Evolve
  • Best Handheld/Mobile Game: Super Smash Bros. for 3DS
  • Best PC Game: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege
  • Best Hardware/Peripheral: Oculus Rift
  • Best Action Game: Evolve
  • Best Action/Adventure Game: Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Best Role Playing Game: Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Best Fighting Game: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  • Best Racing Game: The Crew
  • Best Sports Game: NHL 15
  • Best Strategy Game: Civilization: Beyond Earth
  • Best Social/Casual/Family Game: Mario Maker
  • Best Online Multiplayer: Evolve
  • Best Independent Game: No Man's Sky
  • Special Commendation for Innovation: No Man's Sky

Sounds like I need to check out Evolve. Before you wonder why certain notable games like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt are mysteriously absent, note that they weren't playable by the judges and, as a result, were ineligible for these awards.
