OCC E3 2012 Awards


Over the past two weeks, you may have noticed a lot of news posts and forum discussions revolving around the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). If you're not familiar with E3, it's an annual trade show for the video game industry, held by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). Every year since 1995, video game publishers and developers, along with hardware manufacturers, gather in Los Angeles to show off their upcoming games and game-related technology. Many people complain that E3 has lost some of its luster over the past few years. It used to be that all major announcements were made during E3, but now publishers tend to make announcements year round, not to mention all the leaks that seem to constantly occur. Nevertheless, if you're a gamer, E3 is still a great time of year, and this year was no different.

OverclockersClub may not have had a physical presence at this year's E3, but that doesn't mean we didn't closely follow all the happenings. Throughout E3, we tried to bring you all the major announcements and juicy information on our front page. For nearly five days, our front page was flooded with new announcements, new trailers, and new screenshots. But what games really caught our eyes?

Three of your lovable staff members (aaron6581230, bp9801, and ClayMeow) have picked the best of the best in a variety of categories:

  • Best Action-Adventure Game
  • Best Shooter
  • Best Platforming Game
  • Best Fighting Game
  • Best MMO
  • Best Strategy Game
  • Best Racing Game
  • Best Role-Playing Game
  • Best Free-to-Play Game
  • Best Family Game
  • Best New IP
  • Most Innovative
  • Biggest Surprise
  • Biggest Disappointment
  • Game of the Show

Whether you agree or disagree with their picks, as always, we welcome you to discuss these choices in our forum. They thought long and hard to come up with their 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.
