Destructoid's Best of E3 2013 winners!


The best that E3 had to offer

Titanfall already took home our Game of the Show award for E3 2013. So what about the rest of the categories and games? Well after some much needed rest and relaxation we’ve decided the rest of the winners for all our categories ranging from best platform exclusives, to gaming genres, and more.

There were so many great games at E3, to the point that this was one of the best E3 showings in recent years. Next-gen will have plenty of hot games, but there are still a ton of desirable titles for the current generation of consoles too.

Congrats to all the winners and nominees!
