Super Mario Odyssey looked absolutely fantastic at its E3 showing earlier this year- it looked so great that it won the Best of Show awards from many outlets, GamingBolt included. It looks like the official Game Critics Awards agree, too, since they awarded the game the Best of Show honors, in addition to two other wins, for a total of three awards across all categories.

This was actually the highest number of awards won by any one game- but the second place position is also held by Mario, albeit by the surprisingly great looking Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. You can check out the full list of victors below.

Super Mario Odyssey launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on October 27. What was your own personal Game of the Show? Make sure to let us know in the comments section below
