The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Wins E3 2016 Best of Show Award
Nintendo claimed the top honors this year.
We thought The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a fine looking game at E3- so much so that we awarded it our own E3 Game of the Show award. But we’re not the only one who thinks so, either. The Game Critics Awards for E3 also awarded Nintendo’s next game top honors.
It didn’t stop there for Zelda there, either- the game won three overall awards, the most for any game, beating out other E3 titles like God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Civilization 6, Battlefield 1, Final Fantasy 15, and Sea of Thieves in the process.
