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.

Congrats to Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, and Human Head on getting nominated. Winners will be announced on June 28th.
Update (6/16): Watch Snoop make a cameo in Matt Hooper’s interview with GameReactor UK.
As we prepare E3 roundups for Prey 2 and Skyrim, here’s more photos from last week’s E3 adventure. This time around we’ve got more from the Figueroa Hotel, interviews, awards, and Snoop Dogg!! That’s right, Snoop made his way to the B Double-O TH to check out RAGE.
For more Bethesda pics, check out our Flickr page.
RAGE was fully playable on the E3 show floor this year, and hundreds of journalists stopped by to finally get their hands on id Software’s latest and greatest shooter.
First up, we’ve got a couple of must-see videos highlighting many of the levels we had on display. Following that, sit down for some lengthy interviews and preview-reads. We’ll add more to this post as coverage comes in.
When E3 attendees visit our booth and enter our Skyrim theater, they’re first greeted by a life-sized Elder Scroll. Created by the fine folks at WETA (Lord of the Rings), we look forward to proudly displaying this at our office.
