Titanfall sweeps 2013 Game Critics Awards

9:30 AM on 07.03.2013 // Dale North

Wins 6 awards

The Game Critics Awards, a group of 30 top North American video media outlets, have just released their Best of E3 awards. These are the top games shown at E3 in playable form, nominated by judges from each outlet. 

Destructoid is one of the 30 voting publications, with yours truly serving as the judge. I can tell you that this list makes me happy. It seems my peers and I were on the exact same page this year. Yay for Transistor and Need for Speed: Rivals, two of my favorites from the show. I'm especially glad to see the Oculus Rift take an award -- it continues to blow me away.

Respawn's Titanfall gets a lot of love for this round of CGAs, with a record-breaking 6 E3 awards. This lovely game -- which was also Destructoid's Game of the Show -- actually won all of the categories it was nominated for.

Another key stat shows that the PC is the top platform for awards this year, with 11 of the 14 winning games playable on it.

22/31 missions completed on Prototype, fun game with a ton of destruction but crashes on my desktop PC and barely runs on my dad's laptop. And it's distracting me from playing more Fallout 4. But hey, I can slice+disguise as tank commanders and that's fun

Alright so I'm looking for a few games for my newly repurchased DS. I'm already set on RPG as it's all I have pretty much. Were there any good puzzle games? I've heard good things about Professor Layton.

After hearing Persona 4 Dancing All Night come out of my surround sound system; I can safely say my $20 Playstation TV purchase was totally justified. The bass on Best Friends (Banvox Remox) literally shook the floor. It's freaking awesome!

Was on the front page and was greeted by a new post, which I clicked to find "You cannot see the future". Then refreshed and it was gone. I saw Chris's post on Eight Days' cancellation as it was brought, new and unready, into the world! Rare and wonderful

Community Question: Have you ever purchased a game only to regret it later and then sell it/give it away, only to even later regret selling it and wind up purchasing it again?

A decadent staircase adorned in gold rises into infinite darkness. Writhing beings beyond comprehension lurk in the shadows, their mere presence encroaching on the edges of human understanding. A blood moon glows . I am losing my mind. I need more eyes...

If there are rainbows in Xenoblade Chronicles X, Reyn must be in it as well. You can't have a rainbow without Reyn, baby!
