E3 2012 has come and gone, but the memories of the show’s best games linger on. The Game Critics Awards–the most prestigious E3 awards considering they’re voted on by multiple publications–have named Sony’ and developer Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us as the Best of Show of E3 2012. The Last of Us was also named Best Original Game, Best Console Game, and Best Action/Adventure Game, in addition to winning a Special Commendation for Sound. Other notable winners include XCOM: Enemy Unknown (Best PC Game), Halo 4 (Best Action Game and Best Online Multiplayer), and Watch_Dogs (Special Commendation for Graphics and Special Commendation for Innovation).

-Nick’s take: Coincidentally, The Last of Us was also my favorite game at E3 2012. I know greatness when I see it.
