You saw the Game Critics nominees for E3 2012 earlier this month, and you had a lot to say about them. I can't wait to hear what you'll have to say on the winners. While you're hatin', I'd like for you to keep in mind that I am on the Game Critics judges panel. You'll just have to imagine/pretend that I was on your side, picking your obvious choice. I'm sure I was.

The Last of Us swept the awards this year, taking five categories including Best of Show. It also took Best Original Game, Best Console Game, Best Action/Adventure Game, and Best Sound. They basically won it all. Nice work, Naughty Dog.

The Last of Us was also Destructoid's Game of the Show for E3 2012.

For those keeping score, PlayStation was the top publisher, taking seven awards. PS3 was also the leading platform this year, with 14 of the winning games. 

Hit the jump to see all of the Game Critics Awards for the Best of E3 2012.
