E3 2011: Game Critics Awards nominations honor RAGE, Prey 2, and Skyrim

The Game Critics Awards has announced this year’s Best of E3 nominees, and we’re excited to share news that Prey 2, RAGE, and Skyrim were all nominated.

Skyrim received three nominations, including Best Role Playing Game, Best Console Game, and the overall Best of Show award! Bethesda Game Studios previously won Best RPG for Oblivion (2005) and Fallout 3 (2008). Fallout 3 also won overall Best of Show in 2008.

RAGE is nominated again this year for Best Action Game. The team captured the award last year, as well as awards for Best Console Game and a Special Commendation for Graphics. Previously, id Software won overall Best of Show, Best PC Game, Best Action Game, and Special Commendations for both Graphics and Sound in 2002 for DOOM 3.

Prey 2 also received a nomination for Best Action Game. This is Human Head’s second Game Critics Award nomination (they were nominated for Best PC Game in 2005).

Congrats to Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, and Human Head on getting nominated. Winners will be announced on June 28th.

  1. Bathe in the awards. But while you have the budget, please please. Get new people to write characters, dialogue, and story. You can afford it. Hell snatch up J.E. Sawyer if you can.

  2. some pretty good competition at E3 this year but Bethesda will always stand at the top in my view. Where else will you get to fight fully independent AI Dragons?
