Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 recently snagged the “Best Shooter” award at this year’s Video Game Awards, outspending the likes of Battlefield 3 and Gears of War 3.
Daniel Matros, Battlefield 3′s global community manager congratulated Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer and Activision on winning the award, saying that the devs had “made one hell of a game.” However, he did go on to say that for him, Battlefield 3 is “still number one.”
Gears of War 3 and the two of them were all outclassed by Portal 2 in the Best Multiplayer category- it snagged the award in a surprising turn of events. I cannot say I disagree. The co-op was quite awesome.
The awards aren’t the only success Modern Warfare 3 is getting. It has managed to gross $1 billion worldwide with just 16 days on the market.
Stay tuned for more updates.
