Another E3 extravaganza has come and gone. It was quite the show, as always. Demons' ribcages were wrenched from their bodies by some fancy new melee moves in Doom 4, the Oculus Rift brought us a weird time travel-y Jurassic Park-alike in Time Machine, and Nintendo... well, dicked about in their own little world like they usually do.

It was an all-round good time, is what I'm getting at here. But it's not quite over yet. Because the annual LA gameathon doesn't get enough freaking coverage already, there's one more thing to bring you: the post-show Best of E3 2015 awards, via Game Critics.

‘Each year the Game Critics present its Best of E3 Awards. These awards recognize the games that will shape the future of interactive entertainment, as demonstrated via hands-on playable form at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, CA,' quoth the website, demonstrating that these guys know what the hell they're talking about right here. These are the Game Critics, with capital letters and everything. Their word is law. Now let's ogle the winners:
