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.
