Every year a group of select game journalists judge the best that E3 has to offer. This year, RAGE was nominated for an impressive five Game Critics Awards, making it the most-nominated game of any at the show.
But that’s not all, as today it won three of those categories, which also made it the most-awarded game of E3 2010. The three awards include “Best Console Game,” “Best Action Game” and the “Special Commendation for Graphics.”
This morning the judges for the Game Critics Awards announced this year’s Best of E3 2010 nominations, and we’re excited to share that RAGE scored the most nominations with five. The game was nominated in the following categories:
Best of Show
Best Original Game
Best Console Game
Best PC Game
Best Action Game
Additionally, Fallout: New Vegas, captured a nomination for Best Role Playing Game.
Winners of this year’s Game Critics Awards will be announced next Tuesday, July 6th.
It’s been more than a week since the last game journalist vacated the LA Convention Center (rumors of some being trapped inside have yet to be confirmed), but the E3 coverage continues to make it’s way online for your reading pleasure.
E3 offered a first chance for many to get their hands on New Vegas. Among the eager, first-time players was Atomic Gamer’s Jeff Buckland. Here’s an excerpt from his preview…
“For those who are wondering whether Obsidian was able to make a brand new experience in the style of Fallout 3, the hour or so I spent with the game makes it seem like everything is pretty much in order. But it’s the new elements as well as the renewed interest, two years after Fallout 3, which gets me more excited.”

As we mentioned previously, Brink did pretty well for itself at this year’s E3. In our excitement to share the news, we published our first post-show wrapup a bit on the early side last week, so we have some major catching up to do.
