We're back with the second annual OCC E3 Awards and boy was this E3 jam-packed with goodness! While Nintendo got a head start last year with its new console, this year saw Microsoft and Sony join the party with the highly anticipated reveals of their next-gen consoles, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, respectively. With it came a plethora of new game announcements, but the PC and current-gen systems got their fair share of games as well. All in all, there was certainly something for every gamer out there to be excited about.

It was also an E3 filled with surprises. While last year's big surprise was Ubisoft's Watch_Dogs, it seems the games industry has gotten better at keeping secrets, as this year saw quite a few games come out of nowhere – Star Wars: Battlefront, Tom Clancy's The Division, Kingdom Hearts 3, and a new Halo. Alright, just kidding about Halo – who didn't see that coming? A new Xbox without a Halo game would be like Nintendo having a console without a Mario game – never going to happen. But I digress...

Once again, OverclockersClub did not have a physical presence at E3, but if you checked out the Official E3 2013 Thread, you would have seen a ton of coverage. Unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict, aaron6581230 could not participate this year, but bp9801 and ClayMeow are back and better than ever. To make up for it, a few new categories have been added and although we avoided platform-specific awards last year, with the unveil of the next-gen consoles, we thought it was only right to have awards for best PlayStation 4 and Xbox One exclusives. Here is the full list of awards:

  • Best Action-Adventure Game
  • Best Action Hack-and-Slash Game
  • Best Shooter
  • Best Platforming Game
  • Best Strategy Game
  • Best Adventure Game
  • Best MMO
  • Best Role-Playing Game
  • Best Free-to-Play Game
  • Best Survival Horror Game

  • Best PlayStation 4 Exclusive
  • Best Xbox One Exclusive
  • Most Innovative
  • Biggest Surprise
  • Biggest Disappointment
  • Game of the Show

Whether you agree or disagree with our picks, as always, we welcome you to discuss these choices in our forum. We thought long and hard to come up with our winners and runners-up, even wavering back and forth and making some last-minute changes. There were so many great games shown off at E3, picking the best of the best was no easy task. You can see a full Categorized List of E3 2013 Games here, giving you a taste up just how difficult it was to narrow it down to just one winner and a runner-up or two.
