The E3 Critics Awards, which Gamereactor was one of the judging panel of this year, has announced the winning selection from E3, with Fallout 4 and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End both scoring three wins each.

Bethesda's open-world sci-fi adventure took the overall Best of Show as well as Best PC Game and Best RPG. Naughty Dog's adventure wowed us as well, and it seems other judges agreed: the PS4 title netted Best Console Game, Best Action/Adventure Game and Special Recommendation for Graphics.

But sequels didn't completely dominate the Awards. Horizon: Zero Dawn earned Best Original Game, and No Man's Sky walked away with Best Independent Game. Best Hardware was hotly contested, but in the end the impressive Oculus Touch tech clinched the top spot.
