    Wow, The Last of Us really ran away with the awards didn't it? The Unfinished Swan looks very interesting to me, definitely one of my kind of games!

    Don't be surprised everyone, we all saw this coming, since it's the PS3 and PS Vita we're talking about under Sony.

    But that's only 3 games. All other games sucked cos they're holding back the good stuff for the Wii U.

    Everyone knows that's just Drake with a beard. Fungus zombies...how original. Nature done it first, right after Nintendo created the universe. Creating life, that's how you do innovation and creativity.

    Pikmin 3 (not a sequel, a side-grade) on the totally innovative, not a PSP rip-off and originally-named "iPad"...I mean "Gamepad" is easily the readers choice award of everyone of the people I asked when I was there. Well....it was just me in my bedroom, but I am the voice of video gaming and critics are paid for their opinions so they mean nothin.

    I agree. Although i dont consider myself a fanboy

    This just makes me want to say "finally". I always felt PS3 was better than... the competition.

    Not surprising, but then again, these are just critics choices. Frankly put it, I don't REALLY care for IGN's, GameTrailers', Gamespot's, etc, opinions on this stuff because I know what is appealing to me and I don't need a media outlet to tell me what I'm supposed to like.

    The Last of Us WAS truly astounding, though I was mostly impressed with it because of how real the AI was. The fungus-inspired post-apocalypse setting has been done before and is somewhat stale, and the gameplay seems to be extremely short of revolutionary, but goddamit, it was an impressive demo.

    Now, that said, the fact that it gets this much recognition from critics is sorta whatever. As much as I hate critics, they're the people who tell us to go out and see a movie, or buy a game. I'd be willing to bet that most of you at least check IGN's review of a game before you go out and buy it, let alone look at our own site's review of it, and that's some serious power. Just by handing out these "Best of E3 Awards" The Last of Us just got its sales boosted by like 1,000,000 copies. Now that's power.

    By the way, that is not the full list of accolades written above. All of the awards can be found here: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...announced.aspx

    So in reality, The Last of Us technically took home the most awards (by a slim margin), but Playstation and/or Mayus up there decided to not share the whole story.

    What do you mean? PS360's hacked two accounts in this thread already to post anonymously about the glory of Nintendo and how sucky the seriously fucking awesome The Last Of Us is going to be.

    Looks like a bumper crop this year. Who was the idiot who said innovation in gaming was dead and graphics don't matter? Oh, that's right...

    Um, I just posted a thread from the PS Blog. I never once stated that those were all the awards, only that as a company Sony took home the most awards. So there was no truth bending being done whatsoever. Nice try though Jacko.

    I cannot wait any longer for The Last of Us. The only gameplay we have seen are the people. Just wait until the infected get thrown into the mix

    The Last of Us took home the most awards by a large margin,more than twice as many as the others,how is that a slim margin.

    I don't even go to IGN at all, let along read any of their reviews. They have no journalistic integrity even though they call themselves the ultimate game site.

    The Last of Us was an impressive demo, especially the ending when I watched it live on PSN. That said it is just a demo but I'm hoping the AI is super good and actually reacts the way it did in the demo.
