What were our favorite games of E3 this year? Let's take a look!
The biggest, the best games of the year, sometimes of next year, are shown off each summer in Los Angeles at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
This year we decided to come up with a list of the games that we here at Kotaku thought were among the best at the show.
Keep in mind these are awards based on glimpses, fleeting moments with incomplete games. Things can change between now and when a game actually hits stores, that's why we do a year end Game of the Year awards as well. The annual Goaties are awards, as Totilo so succinctly puts it, based on investigation.
To select these winners I had all of Kotaku's attending writers pick their three favorite games from among the nominees and rank them. Their first choice was awarded three points, second was awarded two and third choice was awarded one. Then I went back and tallied the vote.
So here you go, the closest thing you're going to get to Kotaku's groupthink on the best games of E3.
