Every year, E3 presents the Games Critics Awards to recognize the best upcoming titles showcased at the event, and 2018’s nominees have just been announced. Selected by a panel of 51 publications worldwide – including your friends at PCGamesN – the awards recognize the best games playable at E3.
“Playable” is an important distinction, because to qualify each game must be playable for the voting publications during E3. That disqualifies major titles like Cyberpunk 2077, Remedy’s Control, Fallout 76, and quite a few more. These games are still eligible for Special Commendations in graphics, sound, and innovation, which will be announced with all the winners this Monday.
Stay current with these titles and many more by following our list of the biggest upcoming PC games.
Anthem leads the nominees with picks in five categories and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice follows with four – both of them qualifying for Best of Show among other honours.
There are 55 PC titles among the nominees, seven more than last year. That puts our preferred platform between the major consoles, with PlayStation 4 titles enjoying 58 nominations and Xbox One games getting 51. Ubisoft leads publisher nominations with 11 titles selected, and EA ties Sony Interactive Entertainment in second place with 10 nominations.
All the winners will be announced this Monday, July 2.
