Fallout 4 wins E3 2015 'Best of Show'


Game Critics Awards

Fallout 4 nabbed the Game Critics Award for "Best of Show" during E3 2015. Each year select outlets vote to award the best games that are in, "hands-on playable form" at the show. See a collage here of voting outlets. We're on it; Jordan heads up our voting. We're basically the only square logo, hah.

Our personal Game of the Show went to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you may remember. It wasn't even a nominee here, though. It's pretty amazing. The full list of 2015 nominees is here.

Fallout 4 took three wins in all, tying it with Uncharted 4. Star Wars Battlefront somehow took two awards. Sony Computer Entertainment led publishers with five wins (to EA's 4, Bethesda's 3) and the PlayStation 4 had the most winning titles at 12 (to PC's 9, Xbox One's 7, and Wii U's 1).
