Of the games shown at E3, The Last of Us
has been named the best of them, according to the Game Critics Awards, the honors given to games by a shadowy secret cabal of attending journalists. Naughty Dog's survival game earned "Best of Show," "Best Original Game," "Best Console Game," and "Best Action/Adventure Game," along with a "Special Commendation for Sound."
There were a few awards that went to other games, surprisingly. Among the other big winners were the Wii U for Best Hardware, Dance Central 3
for Best Social/Casual Game and Best Motion Simulation Game, and Sound Shapes
for Best Handheld/Mobile Game.
