chris-littlechild - June 23, 2012

E3 is truly the show that never ceases giving. Long after the fervent fanatics led their en masse exodus from L.A's convention center (leaving a window or two cracked to expunge the all-pervasive stench of sweat, geek and sweaty geek from the superbly-upholstered interior), various attention-worthy matters remain to report. Today, we bring you the results of Future's Most Valuable Game Awards. Premiering at the preceding show, this tasks the entertainment/media/publishing colossus with selecting the choice cuts of gaming steak from this year's sumptuous cow's ass of a bounty. These are elected by editors from Future's most venerated publications, such as Official Xbox Magazine and GamesRadar.

Dead Space 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and Watch Dogs performed admirably, (without getting pissed and launching vicious verbal volleys of expletives and handfuls of man-turd at journalists. As, I'm assured, these ‘video games' are frequently wont to do) while some lesser releases also made fleeting Mr.Chad-over-the-wall appearances in the lists.

Hit the jump for the full aggregation of winners, and the latest footage from the top picks for your delectation.
