Sony and Dishonored top E3 Critics Awards

Postby damoxuk » 20 Jun 2012, 13:12

So every game at E3 then :)

Glad Last of us is getting buzz, looking like it's gonna be brilliant.

Halo 4 also looks good - those effects where brilliant - even though I didn't think much of previous Halo's tis might be a step in the right direction to making it more fun.

No Far Cry 3, Metro Last Light or Hitman Absolution?

Looks like we're going down the best graphics route again...

Last Of Us looks great but i'm not really hyped about anything else. I think i'm turning into a specific genre only type of person (RPGs) which isn't good at all. :(

I agree. Seriously flawed choices in many cases. It is incomprehensible that Watch Dogs is not there.

Show - Dishonored
Original - Quantum Conundrum
Console - Dishonored
Mobile - NSMB2
PC - Hawken
Hardware - Wii U
Action - Metal Gear Rising
Action/Adventure - Dishonored
RPG - Ni No Kuni
Fighting - PS All Stars
Racing - LBP Karting
Sports - FIFA 13
Strategy - XCOM
Social -
Motion -
Multiplayer - Borderlands 2
Downloadable - Quantum Conundrum

No Watch_Dogs at all? Strange. Figured it would be nominated for original category at least, understandable in a way as it's mainly the graphics that got people talking.

What, where's Watch Dogs? Watch Dogs was almost unanimously hailed as the stand out game of E3 2012 (and it's a new IP) by gamers and press alike, yet it doesn't even get mentioned?

This is why I don't bother with CVG anymore.

There has to be some explanation as to why watch dogs was omitted.

Maybe the nominations only go to games that offered play tests. (I don't know if watch dogs did or not, just a theory).

I'm pretty sure the Games have to be playable on the show floor to be eligible for nomination? Can anyone confirm?

This would explain the glaring omission.

I would also expect "playable" games to be allowed otherwise it wouldn't be fair.

Trailers are just made to show the best aspects of a game. Unless you actually played it you can't really know how good it is no matter how good it "looks".
