Last week the Game Critics Best of E3 finalists were announced with much fanfare and debate. Today, I turned in Kotaku's official ballot for who we think the winners should be. I have to say this was one of the harder years to judge. In particular you had games like Left 4 Dead, Fallout 3 and LittleBigPlanet all vying for the same awards and let's not forget Spore, Rock Band 2, Guitar Hero World Tour, LEGO Batman, etc, etc. Hit up the jump for our official ballot and then chime in to explain how we got it all wrong.Best of Show - Fallout 3 Best Original Game - LittleBigPlanet Best Console Game - Fallout 3 Best Handheld Game - Resistance: Retribution Best PC Game - Left 4 Dead Best Hardware - Lips Microphone Best Action Game - Left4Dead Best Action/Adventure Game - Dead Space Best Role Playing Game - Fallout 3 Best Fighting Game - Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Best Racing Game - Midnight Club: Los Angeles Best Sports Game - Skate It Best Strategy Game - Tom Clancy's EndWar Best Social/Casual/Puzzle Game - LittleBigPlanet Best Online Multiplayer Game - Left 4 Dead
Not being at E3 and having only seen these games in action on my computer monitor I feel perfectly qualified to sit here and critize your comments on an event you went to play and call you insane for liking games you have had more time with than I have.
