The lights are on
Last week, the E3 2013 Game Critics award nominations were announced. The group, comprised of 30 outlets (including Game Informer), submitted votes for their favorite titles at this year's Expo.
Now, the awards have been announced. Titanfall takes home six awards, setting a new record for the Game Critics Awards. A majority of the winners (eleven of fourteen) will be available on PC, with ten coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One, four arriving on PlayStation 4, three for PlayStation 3, and one each for Wii U and Vita. As a reminder, only those games that were playable were eligible for nomination.

Wow Titanfall cleared house! It must have left one awesome impression on the game critics. That just increases my excitement for it.
I wasn't impressed with Titanfall, but to each his own, I suppose.
Titanfall for nearly everything? I mean, it looked all right, but it wasn't earth-shattering. It must be because a lot of the other games weren't playable; there were plenty more interesting than multiplayer mechs to me.
watch dogs should won alot,and no batman arkham orgins
Ridiculous voting....nuff said.
titanfall will probs get a 7-8.5
lol titanfail ^^
I still don't understand all the praise for Titanfall, it doesn't even look like it's innovating the shooter genre that much. Glad Watch Dogs won at least one award, jeez!
So how much did Microsoft pay for that or is it simparthy vote/win for Sony winning the show?
Titanfall and Watch Dogs FTW.
Eh, no worries. To me this does not mean crap. The true winners will be decided with our wallets! Not to mention we will have a bigger list of games to "vote" on heh.
