Mario Dominates E3 2017 Game Critics Awards, Full List Of Winners Revealed

Nintendo’s Italian plumber has swept up at this year’s E3 Game Critics Awards, as Super Mario Odyssey claimed three prizes and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle took home two.

The former won the headline Best of Show award, as well as Best Console Game and Best Action/Adventure Game. Ubisoft’s Rabbids crossover, meanwhile, took away Best Original Game and Best Strategy Game.

Elsewhere, EA’s FIFA 18 grabbed Best Sports Game, while Best Online Multiplayer went to Star Wars Battlefront II. Microsoft claimed two prizes, too: Xbox One X won Best Hardware/Peripheral while Forza Motorsport 7 claimed Best Racing Game.

Super Mario Odyssey beat competition from Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and the aforementioned Mario + Rabbids game to win Best of Show. We were impressed with the platformer here at GameSpot, even though Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto was initially “worried” about it.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
